Fit Review! Always Effortless Jacket & Perfectly Oversized Cropped Crew Spiced Chai

Happy Monday! I've got some victory news to share. A little backstory- when I first started working out at the age of 31, I couldn't even do a single push up. I've always had a weak upper body but I kept at it and eventually I was able to do 10 push ups in a row. Now I can do diamond/triangle push ups with ease.

Yes I'm still on a Tidewater Teal kick. 😜 For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms unless otherwise noted. Track That Mid-Rise Short 5" Tidewater Teal  Size 4 I was almost 100% positive the 5 inch length would not work on my petite legs but I was wrong. They're actually not bad from the front. The side looks okay too since there's a cute tulip hem. The waist sits mid rise and there is a drawcord on the inside. The fabric feels rough, which I wasn't expecting. The website describes it as seersucker texture. Now I'm not quite sure what that is so I Google
