And here’s this month’s outfit! Can you tell how much I love it? I was so stoked! Let’s break it down…
Marika Double Drape Tank, Size Medium – Value $22.99 (Retail Value $45.00)
After a summer of neon accents in my Ellie boxes, this month’s pop of color is… olive! I love olive. It tends to be really flattering to me, and the understated tone captures the effortlessly cool vibe I love to sport in and outside of my workouts. Yay yay yay!
In trying this top on, I let the tag tell me what side was the back. And it’s the high side! That said, you can check out #LoveEllie on Instagram to see examples of women wearing it forward and backward beautifully. If I was wearing this out and about, I would probably wear it with the high side as the front. But it is kind of cool as a wrap-like top. I could see swooping this on during savasana for just a touch of extra warmth. It is delightfully breezy and soft. (The fabric composition is 95% Rayon, 5% Spandex, by the way.)
Marika Annabell Sports Bra, Size Medium – Value $50.00?
I just linked to something similar, rather than this exact bra, since I couldn’t find this product online. But similar bras from this brand go for about $50.00, so that seems like a fair guess!
I love the mesh and solid black elastic band that trims this black bra (which is 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex/Elastane). It feels really comfortable and secure—it’s just webbing, but the back really does hug nicely to my shoulders.
Marika Jordan Evade Legging, Size Large – Value $24.95 (Retail Value $55.00)
Ellie, you’re three for three this month, because I love these leggings, too! Comfy and on the thicker side, this pair reminds me of some of my favorite Fabletics styles. They have a soft yet sturdy high waist, and a super cool diagonal mesh stripe design across each shin. I feel awesome in these gray and black leggings—secure, snug, and most importantly, incredibly cool!
Balance Collection Deluxe Yoga Block – Value $6.97 (Retail Value $15.00)
I’m a regular yogi, but I usually just borrow a block at my studio. Say hello to my first-ever yoga block! I love the idea of bringing a stylish block to the yoga studio with me. And since it’ll live at my house, I can expand my at-home practice, too! (Hello, living room half moon pose!)
I couldn’t find this color combo online, but I linked to something similar.
Balance Collection Yoga Grip Socks – Value $11.97?
This specific pair of grippy socks was hard to find, but I linked to a very similar pair for what seems like a fair price. This pair of socks looks like a cute set of Mary Janes! I wore them while doing a YouTube workout in the living room, and they stayed put beautifully on the wood floor. I haven’t done a barre class in awhile, but I might have to dive back into it now that I have such great socks for it!
Bonus: Ellie Drawstring Backpack – Value $10.00?
Oh, and check this out! This month’s box came with a little drawstring bag in Ellie’s signature metallic rose gold! I’m most excited about the color, but I also like the external zip pocket and the slight stretch in the fabric makes it easy to stuff a whole hoodie or pair of sneaks in this bag, no problemo. I just took a guess at what the value of this lined bag is, but I think $10.00 is fair for the quality.
Verdict: Going by my estimations, I got about $127.00 worth of products. And that’s going by the sale prices I found! The box itself is about $50.00, which means each item should be worth at least about $10.00. Most items doubled that, which balanced out the less-expensive pieces (like the block). Bottom line, I think it’s awesome to have nabbed this entire stylish, comfortable outfit (and some awesome gear) for what just one of these pieces might have cost in the store at retail price!
