Hiking in the Pines

Happy Fall! Another month means another Ellie Box and this one is amazing! I have only received Ellie during the warmer months, so I was super excited to see what they would include for October. Once again, Ellie has hit the mark! 

October has always been one of those awkward months in Oregon where Mother Nature just can’t quite make up her mind. We will have sunny days here, crisp mornings there and then all of a sudden we will have a downpour mixed with thunderstorms and freezing cold weather, followed by yet another beautiful. sunny. day. As you can probably imagine, it can make it hard to figure out what to wear for a day of hiking. 

On this day, pictured below, we went to McDonald Forest. There was a crazy downpour the night before, so we were hesitant about hiking, but the next morning ended up being the perfect fall day. The warm sun rays hit our skin as we were wandering through the forest and then a cool breeze would rush through the trees, filling the air with the smell of pine and rain drops. It was seriously magical. 

The best thing about this Ellie box is that the leggings are fleece lined. They are super soft and warm, but not so warm that you’re going to sweat and be uncomfortable in them. They were perfect for hiking during a cooler day. I also LOVED that this box included a jacket. They seriously don’t leave a detail unturned on this jacket. It has the thumb inserts, a cool asymmetrical zipper and gray panels on the sides for a slimming effect. Also, let’s talk about the back on this tee. I seriously love all of the cutouts pieces from the Ellie boxes. From their tanks, to their tees, to their bras, they’re perfect every time. It’s probably one of my favorite things about these boxes. I appreciate all of those extra little touches that make you feel super feminine in workout clothes and pieces that encourage you to show off all of your hard work. Speaking about hard work, if you follow my instastories, you know that I’ve been working out daily this last month (perfect timing for that summer bod, right 😜) I will be doing an update on my progress in the next few weeks, so I can’t wait to share! In the meantime, I’ll just be busting my butt and wearing my Ellie! 



This months box included a purple tee with detailed cutouts on the back, long fleece lined leggings, zip up jacket, yoga mat towel and an accessory pouch. 

Also, I have some good news for all of you who have been thinking about subscribing to Ellie! You can now get 15% off of your first box with code “RACHELREISS15”!
