Jess's Bio

I love all things outdoors & try to explore all the wonderful things Utah has to offer as much as possible. And of course I always make sure I have some killer gear to make the adventure as fun as possible.

And I live for POW days. ;o)

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

I got this as a gift for my friends' 1 year old little girl. They're a super active family & take the baby wherever they go. This shirt is super soft - great against her skin - and provides additional protection from the sun for her sensitive skin. It's also very lightweight, helping her to not overheat in the hot sun.

To echo other reviews, this runs true to size.

This are great for me - not too short & not too long. Seems like so many shorts are either 2 1/2 or 4" with not many options in between. The zipper pouch in the back holds my iPhone 6s and the other smaller pockets are great for dog waste bags. :)

The fabric is great and has held up to some initial washes.
I got a medium to start, but found them to be a bit too big - especially in the waist. Like a lot of active women, I have a little more 'meat' in the thigh/hip/booty area, but I don't have much in the waist. Ended up exchanging for a small & they were perfect! If you're not sure which size to get, I'd recommend sizing down.

For reference - I wear a 4 or 6 in my pants (brand depending) and a size 6 in the lululemon running shorts.

Brooks Launch are my new favorite running shoes. I occasionally run with orthotics & there's plenty of room for them and they still have a lot of cushion. They're snug without feeling tight anywhere. Love the raspberry with neon blue and the black with teal. They provide great support, are super comfortable right out of the box and run true to size.

These are a step up from your standard black legging. The fabric blocking & back zippers add some edge to your usual go-to plain leggings.

The fit is great so far - I like that they go up higher in the waist, so I don't feel as if I have to constantly pull them up. They are quite long, so if you have short legs (which I don't), then you may have some extra fabric to deal with.

I some tops & bras from Alo yoga, but this was the first pair of leggings I've purchased and they certainly won't be my last!

It’s definitely one of the heavier shoes in the trail category, but it doesn’t seem to affect its performance as a high-mileage cruiser that offers loads of protection (including a forefoot rock plate) and comfort. The forefoot rock plate is ideal for the rocky trails that surround Salt Lake.

I've been in this shoe for the last few years & every year they keep getting better.

I have other Alo Yoga bras that I love & really wanted to love this one as well. I got it in the vapor python thinking it was going to be more white/light gray. Unfortunately, the mesh panel was much darker than I had anticipated & wasn't my taste.

My other Alo Yoga bras are mediums - which is what I ordered; however it felt a little big on me. I think it was due to the fact that my others have adjustable straps where this one does not. For reference, I'm a 32D/34C.

It really is a cute bra, so I will be purchasing it again, but in a different color and a smaller size.

Fit: Runs large

I was sooo excited to receive these in the mail the other day - they are so cute & super on trend at the moment.

I heard these can run a big large, so ordered on the smaller side of my size spectrum (8.5) as I can usually wear anything from 8.5 - 9. Unfortunately, they were way too big! I could've easily worn a 7.5 or 8 in these.

You can't go wrong with these shoes from a style perspective - just be mindful with what size you get.

I love this sweater! I got it in the Ivory Combo & love it. Free People's sizing can be all over the map, but I ended up getting this in a small & it's great! The sleeves are a little short, but the crop length is perfect, which was more important to me (I also have a shorter torso).

My only complaint is that the cuffed sleeves blow out a little bit by the end of the day - part of that could be that I scrunch them up a big though.

Overall, I love this sweater & am super happy with my purchase.
