It’s a Stitch Fix milestone, everyone! The big 3-0. I was worried this review would never happen. My family was hit with the plague recently (aka the worst cold in the history of colds). Naturally, I got the worst of it and it lasted almost 3 weeks. This past week was by far the worst I’ve felt, and I procrastinated taking pictures of my fix until I could shower and put on a happy face (thankfully Stitch Fix gave me an extension on the return period because their customer service rocks). Anyway. I tried really hard not to look like a hot mess in these photos. I really did. I had just finished a major coughing spell right before we started and it looked like I had been crying for hours. But, the show must go on!
In my last fix I asked for “going out” pieces and I LOVED all the bright, bold colors I received. For this one I decided to switch gears a bit and asked for a “spring refresh” with casual items for spring (and summer). I mentioned colored denim, subtle florals and a neutral wedge sandal in the note to my stylist. I’m pretty pumped about this one. Upon first glance (when I peeked at the items before it arrived) I thought it could be a 5/5. Dangerous.

Item #1: Attica V-Neck Tank Top (ALICE BLUE) $34 and Item #2: Chester Cargo Short (PISTOLA) $68
Let’s start with the top. I ADORE the print. It is exactly the kind of floral top I like and what I asked for. Subtle. I don’t prefer to wear all-over, big, bold floral prints. This one is just perfect. And I’m obsessed with the colors. So very spring-y. The only downside: it shows a bit more skin than I’m normally comfortable with. Nothing crazy or anything. But the spaghetti straps require me to wear a strapless bra which is inconvenient while breastfeeding (but I won’t be breastfeeding forever) and while I don’t mind v-necks, this is a loose-fitting top so I just need to be careful if I bend over lest I spill out (not that there’s much to spill, truth be told!) But it’s nothing a good cami can’t fix! And I found a really pretty one that you’ll see in a minute!
As for the shorts, they come straight off my Pinterest board! They fit perfectly. I love the army green color. I love the cargo style. They go with most everything. Keeper. I love Stitch Fix.
Item #3: Adorra Skinny Jean (JUST BLACK) $88
I kept on the same shirt to wear with the jeans because the colors work well together! And I added a lace extender cami from Grace and Lace because I just got it and really wanted to see how it would look. It’s not the BEST combo with this particular top but it does make it a bit more modest 😉 Anyway, this is about the jeans! Stop distracting me. I was a little nervous about the pink color. Because let’s just say it…they’re pink pants. But the fit is wonderful and I can wear them with a lot more than I thought I could initially. I’m being brave. I’m being bold. I’m keeping the pink pants!
Item #4: Jesslyn Dress (FUN2FUN) $48
I’ll be honest. I couldn’t figure out how to wear this dang dress. I think it’s probably because it was a bit too small. But I fiddled and fussed with it for way too long. I couldn’t figure out how far down on my shoulder it was supposed to go, where the ruffle should be placed in relation to my boobs and every time I adjusted that, the elastic part at my waist would move and look totally off, and anytime I even so much as thought about raising my arms, the sleeves would pop up over my shoulders. Then I thought “maybe it’s supposed to be there”…but no, that didn’t look right. “This HAS to be an off-the-shoulder-dress!” Needless to say, I’m not keeping this dress lol. I just wasn’t comfortable in it. BUT…it sure does look cute, right? Great color. Lightweight. Cute ruffle with little pom-poms hanging from it.
Oh, and one of the best things about this fix- everything is machine-washable. My stylist knows that this mom-of-3 lifestyle doesn’t allow for much “dry clean only” in my life 😀
Item #5: Serina Perforated Wedge (REPORT FOOTWEAR) $60
I asked for a neutral wedge sandal and that’s exactly what I got. While I love the color and the height of these, I just didn’t love the style. The perforated thing doesn’t bother me, I just didn’t like the straps. Covers too much of the top of my foot I think…. I’m picky. We’ll keep trying in the next fix to find the winners. But these ain’t it.

I’m excited to add those 3 keepers to my wardrobe! Keep an eye out for those pink pants. I’m on a hunt now to find even more tops to wear with them (perhaps I’ll blog about it…”What To Wear with Pink Pants”). Stay tuned!
