Another day of running around driving everywhere meant that I couldn’t spend very much time at the store today but when I walked in to quickly do my returns I saw the Sapphire Blue Daily Practice Jacket that had uploaded this morning and I had to bring it home for a try on. Online I wasn’t sure how close the color was to Pigment or Wish (my top favourite lulu colors) and thought it was probably more washed out in person and not so much a jewel tone. In person, this color reminds me so much of Wish Blue (from 2010ish) and it is absolutely a jewel tone (Duh! Sapphire!!). I wish I had a solid Wish Blue item to compare it to but all I have is a Lively Tee in Heathered Wish. Trying it on at home I had the immediate urge to yank the tags off but I’ve decided to wait a few days just in case we see a Define Jacket in this color. I’m not sure what item of the two I’d prefer but I’d like to have my pick.
The fit is honestly a bit snug in the tummy and at first I wished I had tried on the 12 in store because I may have gone with that. It is quite comfortable and fits well throughout, it’s just pretty close to the body around my mid section which is where I’m most self conscious. I’m starting a Whole 30 on September 1st though so I think ultimately I’m better off sticking with the 10 if I decide to keep the Daily Practice Jacket.

Color Comparison to Pigment Blue Cool Racerback
Hard to tell because Wish Blue is heathered here but I’m pretty sure this is the closest match.
Cyber Stripe Naval Blue High Times Pant TTS 10
I’m not nutty about stripe placement but somehow I ended up lucky with a pair that has all the stripes lined up even though I ordered online. These are an incredibly soft knit texture and although thick and smoothing it’s not really compressive. They are very cozy and I find the color and pattern very flattering. Definitely would like to keep these.
