Yay for mail days guys! My Cabin Yogi LS II arrived along with my second pair of J Brand Houlihan Cargo Skinny Pants.
This is my second pair of Nordstrom Rack J brand cargos. My first pair were the grey ones in my TTS, which I love. After receiving the grey pair and being super happy with the fit and look, I saw that the other color I loved slightly more was marked down even cheaper. The only problem is that it didn’t come in my preferred size, it was only available in my size down. This size is fine when I’m lighter but right now I’m heavier than usual so the grey size is much more comfortable and relaxed. Sizing down makes it pinchy in the waist area, but they do relax quite a bit. I recommend taking your usual denim size if you are interested in these. I’m starting Whole 30 in January so I hope to wear this pair by early spring. I really love the look of this skinny cargo style pant with a pretty silky blouse and ballet flats, or heels.
This year I got the Cabin Yogi LS II in a size up, because I wanted a loose baggy fit. I’m very happy with the sizing and I think the color is super pretty. Online it looks like a heathered grey/black/white but it is most definitely a navy in person and with the white heathering it almost looks like a denim color. I used to really love Lululemon’s Boolux material but I now favour the merino wool, and I’m a bit sad that this sweater isn’t their beautiful merino. Boolux is a synthetic blend with a 5% cashmere added to the knit, and it’s quite soft but it’s also very warm and tends to pill more. I find merino is much cooler to wear, yet warm when it needs to be and it’s harder wearing for me.
