As I was trying to think up a title for this post, it dawned on me that since starting my Stitch Fix service for the first time in July of last year, I’ve had ONE fix where I wasn’t pregnant. My second fix came the week I found out I was pregnant- I just didn’t know it at the time(and I never blogged about that box anyway). The four boxes that have come since have been really awesome, but it was hilarious to me that I never really connected that I’ve kind of just been doing maternity Stitch Fix basically ever since I signed up.
That being said, this box was awesome. So awesome, in fact, that I’m debating keeping all of it. I have a few days to decide, so y’all be sure to give me your input on what you like and think are definite keepers! After this box I think I’m going to take a Fix hiatus until this fall. With a giant bump coming, the postpartum blahs, and a little extra time to try and get back in shape, I think it will be a bit before I’m ready to do fun clothes shopping(and subsequent posts) about it. So enjoy this one!
Honey Punch Renoir Kimono
Do me a favor and let’s all pretend we don’t notice how badly I need to have my color touched up. Okay, that’s out of the way.
I specifically requested a kimono style top in this box because I’ve been seeing them around a lot recently and I think they’re super fun. They seem light weight and easy, a nice alternative to a cardigan, and seem pretty easy to dress up or down.
I’ll be honest, when I pulled this one out of the box I was a smidge disappointed just because when I think kimono, I think bright colors- possibly floral? But once I tried it on I was really happy with it. I like how it fits, I like how I can wear it year round, the black and white obviously goes with anything, and fun fact, I don’t own a single article of chevron clothing. So, there’s that.
Monoreno Tobias Hooded Jacket
Daniel Rainn Kieraly Dot Print Short Sleeve Blouse
Market & Spruce Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top
Now this. This right here. This is a quintessential Courtney style top. I had one pinned on my Pinterest board so she snagged it for me and sent it my way. I knew when I pulled it out of the box that I would love it, and of course I do. It might seem boring and not very fun, and I guess it doesn’t really pull me much out of my comfort zone, but this is definitely the sort of fit and style that I gravitate toward. It is my happy place. It’s fitted but is also somewhat loose. It will stretch and accommodate Mabel for now, stretch and fit for after she’s outside but still needs me, and will be cute and stylish for when my body is my own again…you know like years from now.
So what do you think? Keep it all? Only a few? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
