I had been doing my regular, routine pinning when I came across some Fix inspiration to request for my upcoming fix. After seeing other fellow Fixers show off their recent athleisure fixes, I knew it was something that I wanted to request next. All my new pins must have helped, because Katherine was able to pull out a 5/5 fix. My regular stylist, Nicole, was unavailable, so a brand new stylist viewed my Pinterest boards, my fix note and hit the ground running.

My fix arrived sooner than expected and as usual, I excitedly tore through it! Let’s see what great pieces Katherine put together for me.
As I opened my fix, I was excited to find a shoe bag and a carefully wrapped stack of lovelies for me to take out, muse over and try on.
Right out of the gate, I was loving the color palette of this fix. It screamed cozy as I unwrapped the stack of clothes Katherine put together for me.
I had some fun pairing and styling the pieces of this fix. Let’s take a look.
Lucky Brand Emmie Round Toe Ballet Flat
Katherine found a cute pair of grey-tone flats. When I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I was mildly skeptical of their elastic heel because I was not sure if they would leave me blistered. Much to my surprise, they were comfortable and did not dig in along the elastic line. The sole of the flat is very thin, so these would be optimally worn on a calm, dry, warmer spring day. If New England gets lucky, we might see one of those days by the end of March. The lion is surely getting in his jollies this year.
Rune Glynn Faux Leather Detail Moto Legging
Item number two was a pair of edgy-meets-comfort black leggings. There were a couple of things that I loved about them as soon as I slid them on. First, I loved how smooth they felt on me. I felt as though they smoothed over some of my less appealing physical features. I also loved the diagonal pleats near the knee followed by the feax leather detailing down the side from mid-shin to the ankle.
First, I styled them with the oatmeal colored RetroD Morrison Elbow Patch Pullover sweater from Fix #6 and the grey and black Tahari Palace Wedge from Fix #5.
I got to see how I could dress up a simple pair of leggings with a pair of high heeled wedges and a dressier top. To recreate the look, I found some similar pieces that you could get on sites that I frequently shop. Amazon has a variety of reasonably priced Tahari Palace Wedge Pumps. Get them here. A quick search for sweaters with elbow patches revealed that Nordstrom Rack has several to choose from. The one linked here most resembled the one from my Fix.
Laila Jayde Carlique Raw Edge Neckline Knit Top
Katherine sent along an oversized, high-low knit top in light grey that I was unsure of when I held it up, but instantly loved when I put it on. I had some fun trying this top with some different options.
First, I paired the Laila Jayde Carlique knit top with the black Moto leggings and the Lucky Brand Ballet Flats. Needing a pop of color, I reached for the Tina Checkered Infinity Scarf by Octavia from Fix #1.
Keeping the top and the leggings, I opted to change the scarf for a softer color and change the flats for black riding boots. Shop the look below.

Blue Infinity Scarf from Ann Taylor LOFT This particular scarf is on clearance right now—$4.84! What a steal!
Bobeau Winston Open Cardigan
Next, I tried on the open cardigan in light pink. It is more of a pastel pink color and very light. The material is very soft and stretchy. At first I tried it on with just a tank underneath and the leggings. I thought it might look better with a longer shirt under it. After styling it differently, I realized that long or short layering tops work just the same.
Rune Donaald Cowl Neck Knit Hoodie
Perhaps one of my favorite pieces from this fix is the hoodie. It is an off-white color with black accents on the cuffs and some of the seams. It has an oversized hood in the back and the smallest, but best feature in my opinion, is the thumb-holes on the cuffs. Dressed up or dressed down, this hoodie is surely a versatile piece to add to the grand collection.
Here, I styled it ready to get active with my favorite pair of colorful Asics. Then, I dressed up the hoodie with a pair of my go-to jeans from LOFT.
