Fit Review Friday! Athleta Stronger Hoodie in Petite XS vs XXS

Happy Friday everyone! Sooooooo happy the weekend is here. I have a short fit review today. It's a comparison between Athleta's Stronger Hoodie in PXS and XXS. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon Define Jackets and a size 2 in Scuba Hoodies. In Athleta this translates to a XXS or PXS. Last year I ordered the Stronger Hoodie in size XXS. They didn't have petite at the time and now they do! So of course I wanted to compare the two. Unfortunately I did not keep the XXS Stronger Hoodie from last year. I ended up returning it because I wasn't sure about the forest green color. Here are the photos I grabbed from last year's review . Stronger Hoodie  Forest Green XXS Stronger Hoodie Cassis PXS Let's start by comparing how the two look from the front. Almost identical, right. The XXS looks to be a little more fitted in the waist. The length of the PXS looks just a smidge shorter in the front. Everything els

See what's new at Athleta!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I got the new Athleta catalog in the mail yesterday and perused it. I might've placed an order to try a few things. I'm definitely more interested in Athleta over Lulu these days. 😱 Here are my picks! Helena Suede Jacket (I'm not usually a suede person, but this looks pretty comfy) Mesh Shine Salutation 7/8 Tight (Because Lululemon isn't satisfying everyone's dusty mauve craving, maybe Athleta will?) Metro High Waisted Legging (Nothing screams fall is coming like a burgundy color!) Ponte Skinny Pant Highland Hybrid Ankle Tight Intention Jacket 2.0 (This reminds me of Lululemon's Precision Jacket. Maybe this fits better?) Stronger Hoodie  (I'm giving this hoodie another try) Wrappers Delight Jacket (I can't decide between the light gray and the black. I also really want the leggings the model is wearing!) Ultimate Crossback Tank (Totally loving this tank)

Major Fit Review Friday! Athleta Studio Wrap, Eco Wash Daily Tank, High Rise Jacquard Chaturanga, High Rise Prism Chaturanga, Knot Zephyr Tank, Stronger Hoodie

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have for you a ton of Athleta reviews and about 30 photos. 👀 So get ready for a really long post. I'm also breaking this post up into three sections.  The first photo shoot was back in January before my ban. Last weekend I went to an Athleta store and did some store try ons.  I also placed an order for more items, so these photos are in chronological order. First we have the Studio Wrap . I've blogged about this wrap before and I love it so much I decided I had to have it in black also. You can check out my review of the Studio Wrap here . Studio Wrap Black XXS Quick recap, I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and this translates to an XXS for Athleta. For bottoms I'm a size 4 in Lululemon and PXS in Athleta.  This wrap is so comfy and super soft. It's literally my favorite piece to grab for. I'm also wearing my Align Crops in alberta lake. I think it's perfect to wear with the Studio Wrap

New Essential Tank in Dusty Mauve! Athleta Try Ons!

I managed to get myself to a super busy mall yesterday.  Stopped by Athleta and Lululemon to check out new items.  Looks like dusty mauve in the Essential Tank is hitting the US stores.  This tank runs big, so I sized down in this. Essential Tank in Dusty Mauve Size 2 As of now they only have 4 colors on the website.  Maybe we will see dusty mauve uploaded this coming Tuesday.   I think this color is super pretty.  So yep, I took it home with me.   Next up, I went to Athleta to check out the Stronger Hoodie and Downabout Vest. Stronger Hoodie  in Grey Heather Space Dye Size XXS I tried on the XXS but I think I would need to try this in the XS.  The chest and shoulders felt a little too tight for my tastes.  Surprisingly I think I prefer this hoodie in the darker charcoal color more.   The inside of the hoodie is lined in fleece.  The fuzzy fleece, which I personally am not crazy about.  The fabric felt soft but not super soft.  It's a
