2 Ways to Turn Your Workout Clothes into an Athleisure Outfit

It’s no secret that New Years is often a time of reflection, a realization that you met none of your goals in the previous year (or maybe that’s just me) and you resolve to do better in the year ahead. Last year, it meant setting anti-resolutions, as I felt myself getting caught up in a lot of FOMO and trying to do all the things. This year, I’ve opted to do nothing. I have no goals this year and that’s just fine with me.

How to Wear the Athleisure Trend // Hello Rigby Seattle Fashion Blog Disclosure: This post was created in partnership with Fred Meyer. Thanks so much for supporting the brands who help support this blog!

I’ve learned that making plans sets the stage for disappointment. Last year, in the course of a month or so, we got the crazy idea to list the condo for sale and start looking for a house. Truth be told, I thought we would be in a house right now. We are not, and I’ve learned that not everything works out when you think it will. And also that house hunting sucks. I’m not sure why I thought it would be fun, but it is not.

Menswear Inspired Outfit // Wear to Work #2

Growing up, I never was a tomboy so the entire “menswear inspired” or “borrowed from the boys” trend has always been pretty lost on me. I gravitate towards textures and colors that are inherently feminine. Looking into my closet, you’ll see more grays, pinks, and reds rather than greens and blues. Well, unless you count denim. I have a lotttt of that.

But, if there’s anything I’ve learned from blogging and getting to know my personal style better, it’s that experimentation is always a good thing. You’ll never know what you may discover about yourself when you try something new and different. Sometimes doing something uncomfortable can lead to new and better things. Or not, but that’s the joy of trying something new. You learn what you like, what you don’t, and why.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection // Giveaway!

Over and over again I’ve heard people buzzing about the new releases to the Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection this past December. I was fortunate enough to nab a few goodies on launch night via TooFaced.com, despite the mass amount of traffic that was slowing their site down and making it incredibly hard to check out.

In typical me fashion, I wanted to take a little time to be able to try out the products fully so that I can give you my honest thoughts. I’d hate to make recommendations or express displeasure with something that I end up changing my mind on a later date, which is why I wanted to write out the good, bad, and ugly about this collection.

So first off: the elephant in the room. If you’re someone who follows “makeup drama” on social media and YouTube, then you might have heard about the shipping “scandal.” I was not affected by this, as I believe it was only those who ordered the eyeshadow palette. I can’t give a first-hand account of how my customer service experience was because my order shipped about two business days after placing it (on December 17th), and then I received the product on December 21st via FedEx, so I didn’t need to contact customer service. My order arrived well packaged with everything I ordered inside.

Now that we’re past the elephant in the room, let’s get to the good stuff! The products themselves, of course.

Winter Work Outfits // Wear to Work #1

As I was reflecting on content I’ve created over the past year or two here on the blog, I began to see a pattern emerge that while okay for me, may not work for everyone else. And as much as I love a good casual outfit, I know that’s not practical for anyone who works in an office or for a business with a dress code. That’s why I thought it was about time I start something new, a wear to work series, mainly focusing in on winter work outfits.

Winter Work Outfits

With winter in full swing here in the Pacific Northwest, I see a lot of boring winter work outfits when walking Downtown to grab lunch. As far as the eye can see, it’s a sea of black suits, outdated, clunky knee high boots, trench coats, and rain slickers. Not inspirational or aspirational, and nothing I have any interest in wearing to work each day.

Stitch Fix January 2017 // Giveaway!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a fun finale to the holiday season and were able to ring in the new year with those you love most. Personally, I enjoyed a snuggle in bed with my two favorite boys, watched movies all night, and pigged out on fried chicken and cookies from Trader Joe’s. Yep, party animals. But, I’ll spare you the fascinating the details and get into what you’re really here for, my monthly Stitch Fix review!

It wouldn’t be the beginning of a new month without my usual Stitch Fix post, so here we are! At the end of December, I suffered from a weird virus that manifested itself in horrible, pounding headaches. (Or maybe it was a migraine? No clue. The doctor said it was a virus, though.) That made it really hard for me to blog, let alone get outside and take photos, for days. So, my Stitch Fix sat lonely under my desk through the long Christmas weekend, when I finally remembered a few days later that it had been waiting for me. Oops!

Stitch Fix January 2017 Review

I say all of this because unfortunately, some of these pieces would have been total keepers for me had I opened the box before the holidays. But, since I didn’t, I felt compelled to send them back because I couldn’t foresee a need or occasion for them. Regardless, Bianca did a great job anticipating my needs for the holidays, and if you’re interested in seeing what she sent me then just keep reading!
