Fit Review! J.Crew Petite Lodge Coat & 2021 Musings

I usually like to do New Year's resolutions but 2020 made all of that seem moot. I think being healthy, happy, and staying sane until we see Covid free days is all we can hope for. Be kind to yourself. Cut yourself some slack. Be nice to others. 2020 was a year where I was still able to exercise at home. I'll continue to do so and hopefully I'll get a little stronger this year.  My loungewear exploded. I replaced all of my bras which was pretty expensive. Looking at my spreadsheet I spent about $5,000 at Lululemon and probably close to $2,000 at Athleta in 2020. That's kind of nuts considering I spent $3000 total on both brands in 2019, which is a much more reasonable amount. I think for 2021, I want to be extremely selective on what I add to my closet this year. It has to be something I need, or needs to be replaced or just something very special.  I would also like to declutter just a little bit. I'll start donating/selling some of my things. I'll be going thr

J.Crew Review! Cropped Cardigan Sweater and Sophie Sweater Blazer Chevron

Another weekend over. I swear they go by so fast. It's almost the end of October. Normally I like to buy a few items during fall to refresh my wardrobe and more often than not, I turn to J.Crew. They always have pieces that can transition from the office to the weekend. Even though I'm no longer going into the office these days, I couldn't resist these two pieces.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a XXS/XS in J.Crew. I also wear a size 4 in Lululemon tops. Sophie Sweater Blazer Chevron  Size XXS I used to have a very similar chevron sweater from Anthropologie that I wore to death and got compliments every time I wore it. This sweater blazer kind of reminds me of that Anthropologie sweater I used to have. It's super soft and I was pleasantly surprised when I took it out of the bag at how much I liked it. The fabric is lightweight, yet cozy. This is something I would wear to the office but this is also a piece that can easily be worn on a weekend outing. Not

Store Try Ons! J.Crew Essential T-shirt & Linen Roll-cuff T-Shirt

Happy Friday everyone! J.Crew is having a really good sale right now. 40% off full price items and an extra 50% off sale items. I stocked up on a few staple pieces for work. J.Crew tees are pretty much all I wear to the office. I'm wearing a size XS which I find to be very comfortable and it is semi-fitted. They are the perfect mid-weight tee. I'm also a big fan of their vintage tees which are very light weight and perfect for hot summers. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon or size XXS/XS in J.Crew tops. Essential T-Shirt Heather Dolphine Size XS These two colors are currently excluded from the promo, but they have select colors on sale . Check back next week because I managed to get the black and gray for 30% off. J.Crew offers new deals every week. Essential T-shirt Black Size XS  also wearing On The Fly Crop Size 4 (currently on sale.) I also picked up their Linen Roll-cuff T-shirt in navy and blac

J.Crew Sophie Open Front Sweater Blazer

About a year ago I purchased the Sophie open-front sweater blazer in heather gray , and I wear it almost once a week. I thought the navy would make a great addition to my work wardrobe. This sweater blazer is made of mid to light weight cotton blend fabric and is perfect to wear all year round at the office.  Sophie open-front sweater blazer   I'm wearing my usual XXS in J.Crew. I would say this sweater blazer runs large. It's possible I could size down to XXXS, but since I don't really have any complaints wearing XXS, I stuck with it.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon and size PXS in Athleta. The sleeves are 7/8 length and because I'm so petite, they're almost full length on me. Sometimes I'll roll them up a little bit to style it but most of the time I just leave it down at the office. The length of this sweater blazer covers the bum but it's not too long that it overwhelms my petit

Fit Review! J.crew Going Out Blazer & Athleta Mercer Herringbone Tight

Another weekend already gone. I won't ever understand how the weekend can go by so quickly. Last month I wrote a review on J.Crew blazers and one of the ones I wrote about was the Going Out Blazer . I originally purchased it in navy, but returned it because I ended up keeping a different one in the same color. I reordered the Going Out Blazer in heathered dove gray but I'm unsure if it looks as nice as it does in navy. For reference I'm 4 feet 11. For J.Crew I usually wear 2P in tops or size 0 in regular. For Athleta I'm a PXS in bottoms. Going Out Blazer Heathered Dove Gray Size 0 Just to write a quick review, the size 0 fits perfectly in length, sleeves, and shoulders. There is no need to get the petite version unless you want a cropped sleeve. I personally prefer full length sleeves on a blazer. It's a fairly budget friendly blazer that can be worn to work and on the weekends paired with jeans. Right now J.Crew is having a 30% off with code AUTUM
