ellie outfit for september

This month, I picked the “Vinyasa Vibes” outfit. FYI, the tops I got are size medium, and the bottoms are size large.

Inter-Lace High Waist Legging

The star of the show here is definitely the leggings. I wasn’t sure how they would look on me, but they’re so eye-catching that I had to try. I’m used to lace-up legging styles that start/end at the ankle, and being that I’m on the shorter side at 5′ 3″, that’s the part of leggings that usually gets scrunched up and doesn’t lay so glamorously. The cutouts on these black high-waisted leggings (which are 90% polyester, 10% spandex/elastane) fall a little higher up, and I think they look pretty cool. The design kind of wraps around my calves in a neat way. There’s a weird fraying section at the top of the design that I’m a little worried about, but otherwise, I think they look neat. The top edge of the high waist sort of nips in just a bit, so that they actually stay put on top of my hips. That’s much appreciated!

Seamless Jacket

This stretchy (98% nylon, 2% spandex) zip-up is dotted with holes to keep it from getting too stuffy after a sweaty class. It’s light and pretty warm for being so thin. I love a jacket with thumbholes, too. I feel like I’d sport this between my car and class, or throw it on before a jog on a chilly day. The fact that it’s so streamlined makes it feel just right for running/active outdoor workouts.

Audrey Sports Bra

As you can tell, this bra was a little tight on me. My back, in particular, is pretty broad, so I like when pieces have just a bit more give (or else just more coverage, so I don’t feel like I’m falling out of it). The interlaced details on the back are cool, though, and I do appreciate feeling like the bra isn’t going anywhere! I might save this bra for non-yoga workouts when I’m less concerned about comfortably twisting and moving around.

Grip Gloves

I’ve gotten into slippery situations in yoga class before, so I can totally see the appeal of these sticky gloves. My hands are a little on the small side, and I do feel like these knit 88% cotton, 12% elastane gloves are a little on the loose side to prove helpful. (In other words, the gloves might stick better, but I feel like my hands are sliding around inside the gloves.)

Stretch Strap

Straps are super helpful when you’re feeling less than bendy. This one’s rose-gold hardware and gray camo-style pattern make it one of the chicest yoga straps I’ve seen from a subscription box. It’s smooth and soft, too.

Verdict: I could’ve sized up with the bra, but everything else was pretty A+ this month! I don’t know if I’ll get a lot of use out of the gloves in yoga class (would it be weird if I wore them as actual gloves?), but everything else is going to be in regular rotation for me. I’ve gotta say, I really appreciate how seasonal the options were. Some subscriptions connect you with affordable high-quality gear, but it might not be tailored to the weather at hand. So getting a little jacket to keep me warm on brisk fall days makes me very happy 🙂

  1. I love that jacket!! I am kind of interested in this sub but I’m not sure I need a new pair of leggings every month. Since I live in Tx, it’s too hot to wear leggings 8 months out of the year. I wish they offered shorts or skorts.

    • I subscribe, but I skip more months than I keep. It is very easy to skip. I don’t want a new outfit every month, so unless I really love one of the 3 choices of outfits (and love all 3 pieces) I skip.

  2. I am usually a size small in stuff but sports bras a tricky. I am a 34D… their size guide only refers to band size, not cup size! Any thoughts on this?


    • Ooo, good question, Kate. I’m a smaller cup size and a wider band (36B), and I tend to find the size medium bras I get from this sub to be on the smaller side. So I’d say you probably want to size up if anything. I hate feeling too smushed into a sports bra! Maybe the best bet is to shoot them a quick email via their contact page to see what they recommend. They seem to have a big, engaged community, so maybe they can let you know what’s worked for other folks with a similar size 🙂

  3. I LOVE that jacket- anyone want to sell/trade??

  4. I almost grabbed this one this month – the leggings and top are really nice. But I wanted a more supportive bra with it, and they don’t mix/match.

  5. I love the vinyasa outfit. I always appreciate a jacket and I love the lazer cuts, my back gets really hot when I run while my arms and hands are colder, I never understood running vests, I need the opposite of a vest. And I have worn my gloves at work when my hands get cold.

    • Ooo Amanda I TOTALLY feel you! My back is always sweating through my shirt when I run!

  6. Can anyone tell me how these fit compared to Reebok leggings?
