Fit Review Friday! Athleta Luxe Stronger Hoodie

Happy December!  I can't believe it's almost the end of the year already.  Today I have for you a super cozy hoodie.  This one is more of an outerwear hoodie since it's lined with faux fur.  I would maybe wear this around the house if I didn't have the heat on. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and wearing a size XXS in Athleta. Luxe Stronger Hoodie Size XXS  This hoodie is sooooo soft and warm I am seriously thinking about picking up another in the oatmeal color.  The oatmeal version has a gold zipper which makes it super pretty.  The black color comes with regular silver colored zipper.  Wish it was gold or rose gold! Sizing is pretty true to size for me.  If you're in-between sizes I would say size up.  It can be a little tight in the shoulders and armpits otherwise.  It's definitely very slim fit. The sleeves are a little too long for me, but what else is new?  The hoodie itself is very soft.  This is a medium to heavy weight hoodie.

Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Crew in Heathered Raspberry and Heathered Peacock

Fit Review! Carbon38 Goldsheep Polonium Leggings & Cozy Up Buttercup Jacket in Black

First up I finally got the Cozy Up Buttercup Jacket in black.  It arrived in the mail today!  My husband got them for me as a surprise. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and usually a size 2 in Lululemon outerwear, but I take a 4 in fitted tops. This jacket is in a size 2 and very comfortable with enough room for layering.  Wearing it unzipped it did not look super big on me, but still oversized mainly because of the collar. I did have a little bit of a hard time getting the collar to lay right because of the asymmetrical zipper.  However once I zipped it up, I think the jacket looked more put together.   Oh, I should have cropped all these photos.  Just ignore the garbage can and coke bottle!  I don't have a plain blank wall for a background, so my closet will have to do! I really like the length on me, it covers my bum completely which is very nice, especially now that we are officially in winter weather here in Boston.  I'm excited to try this j
