As the year comes to a close, it’s always nice to reflect back on all the good things that happened. In an especially rough year, it can be easy to only see the bad and let it overshadow the good. If you’ve spent any amount of time on social media recently, you’ll see an onslaught of “good riddance 2016!!” comments, and other similar sentiments. So in a year like this one, I think it’s even MORE important to spend time reflecting on the good. I mean, my beautiful daughter came into the world this year. As did my miracle nephew, Mason. I made new friends. And I received really amazing new clothes, which isn’t nearly as important as the previous things mentioned but I still feel very grateful for it. These are all good things to celebrate 🙂 So, we’ll start with My Favorite Things From Stitch Fix– 2016!
Here are my top 5 favorite Stitch Fix items/outfits that I received this year. Some are maternity, since I spent half the year pregnant : )

In no particular order…
1. Charlote Ruched Side Maternity Knit Top ($48) and Taylor Maternity Cuffed Demin Short ($54)
This was the outfit I lived in for the majority of the 3rd trimester. The top was lightweight enough that it was OK to wear during the summer heat (MOST days. Some days were just INSANELY hot, and wearing no clothing at all was almost an option). The shorts were the only pair of maternity shorts I owned and luckily they were super comfortable, fit well and went with everything. So they got a ton of use! I’ve since passed both pieces on to another pregnant mama (because this shop is CLOSED, people), but I’ll always have these pictures to look back on 🙂
2. Sina V-Neck Printed Maxi Dress ($78)
This dress technically isn’t even maternity but it came in a maternity fix because it worked so well with the baby bump! And of course, I love that I can still wear it now, postpartum. It’s so light, comfortable, breathable, figure-flattering and has a gorgeous print! I can’t wait for warmer weather to start wearing this again. Bonus: it’s also nursing-friendly!
3. Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace $28
Sigh. I LOVED this necklace. I had been looking for a long, gold pendant necklace to wear with my casual outfits and my Stitch Fix stylist delivered. I wore this almost every day for several weeks… until… my daughter broke it 🙁 She didn’t mean to of course. She sort of jumped up into my arms and her little hands pulled down on the necklace and the chain broke. I keep telling myself I’ll take it somewhere to get it fixed. But all moms of little ones know how likely that is lol. RIP chevron pendant necklace.
4. Addison Skinny Jeans ($88)
I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of these pants in 2017. I pair them with just about everything that you can possibly pair with burgundy skinny jeans. The fit and length is SO perfect, which is surprisingly rare for me. I’m 5’4, so not *quite* petite, but most pants still run long on me. These “ankle” length pants feel just right. They also have a lot of stretch to them. It was one of the first pair of “pre-pregnancy size” jeans that I could wear postpartum, even when others of the same size still felt too tight. Amazing, amazing jeans!
5. Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top ($54)
Last but not least, a favorite from my most recent December fix! This gorgeous striped floral top is so soft and so pretty. I had nothing like it in my wardrobe (until now). Whenever I immediately wear an item out in public that I JUST received, I know it’s going to be a wardrobe fave. This was one such item.
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my reviews this year and I look forward to what 2017 will bring! I’m working on a major blog redesign and other improvements to make your experience as a reader even better! I can’t wait 🙂
