Welp, I guess this is going to be the last Fitting Room post for the foreseeable future. THANKS CORONAVIRUS! Luckily for us, online shopping is still a thing. But with social distancing in full effect… where are you going to wear your new outfit?
I’ll be wearing mine on the internet.
Here’s the roundup from my IWD adventure to lululemon, before COVID-19 officially took over the world.
The Fitting Room: Lululemon
Cates Tee ($48) in Cut Back Stripe White Black
Shown here in an 8. Ended up liking this one more than I thought I would.
I was wearing a cami & Aligns under the shirt dress I had on that day, so I was able to see what this crop would look like without high-waisted pants that just aren’t high enough. Being tall is (mostly) fun.
Sincerely Yours Sweater ($128) in Pink Glow
Another unexpected win. I usually don’t rock the blush pink, but it seemed to work. If it appears on WMTM, I’d consider it.
Rally Wrap ($138) in Black/Black
The #1 coulda shoulda with the International Womens Day discount. I absolutely loved this wrap and how it felt cozy without looking like I was lost in it.
Ultimately, I wasn’t sure how often I’d wear it out in the real world, (haha now we’re all wearing nothing out in the real world), so I guess it’s ok I made the decision to save my money.
Trail Trekker High-Rise Tight 25″ ($128) in Cassis
I was the most curious about these, given that Athleta has a stranglehold on the hiking tights segment when it comes to my closet.
The fabric is a ribbed knit, making them more substantial than last year’s cargo-pocketed flop. I admittedly went directly from going HAM on brunch to the mall, so I was totally feeling the food baby. Due to that I didn’t feel my most confident in Cassis. However, someone already bought out the black 10 in my store, so I had no choice.
Overall I did like how they felt, the only odd thing was the round panel at the small of the wearer’s back that didn’t quite look right. If I find a black pair out in the wild when stores reopen, I may give them another go.
I’d wear them to hike, for sure. If you are a bit more hardcore and like to do more intense activities that require a harness or a lot of abrasion (like rock climbing), be wary of snaggability.
Take it in Stride 1/2 Zip ($98) in Black
Don’t mind my face, it’s a reaction to how full I feel, and not the top itself.
It’s a nice middle weight crop LS for these somewhat cool temps we are working our way through as Spring attempts to show up. It has ribbed sleeves, and has a construction very similar to the Far & Free Jacket.
Speed Up Short *Long ($58) in Wild Bluebell
Step away from the gorgeous shorts, Miss Katy. You already have Jet Stream and Blazer Blue. Step the F away. 💙
