what i wore {stitch fix}

wiww banner

welcome to what i wore!  this is my weekly post where i share my outfits for the week, and lots of you join along and link up with me!  i started this so that i would get out of my lounge pants and into real clothes, and posting my outfits here helped to keep me accountable.  now its just fun for me (and i still need to be held accountable – those yoga pants are just so cozy!), and i love to come up with new outfits, or just share my everyday style to show that moms can be fashionable on a small budget.  i also have found that i’ve begun to push my self a little bit when it comes to my personal style, and thats kind of fun!

a couple years ago, a friend recommended stitch fix, an online service that sends you 5 articles of clothing, on a monthly basis or just as often as you ask for a “fix”.  when you sign up, you fill out a long series of questions to help them get a good idea of your style, the fit you prefer, and what types of clothing you want.  you can also link up a pinterest fashion page to give them a better idea as well!

so far i’ve had 2 fixes and it has been so fun!  i feel like our first fix was just working out the kinks a bit – getting the size right and the style narrowed down.  i really liked most of the items they sent me, but they were all a tiny bit too big.

i kept this dress from my first fix – isn’t it so pretty?  it is really hard for me to find short dresses that aren’t too short – above the knees, but not mid-thigh.  i paired it with new shoes from american eagle and an old belt.  i am looking for a skinny belt to wear instead to add more girliness to the outfit.

this denim jacket was sent to me in my latest fix and the fit is perfect!  i think its really hard to find a denim jacket that isn’t super boxy.

this was my favorite item, this dolman top.  it is so comfy and fits perfectly!  it has a barely blue color and can be easily dressed up or down, depending on accessories alone.  i love versatile pieces like this!  i paired the top with new ankle length pants i just got from target, and my new american eagle wedges, and a necklace from forever 21.

i also got this top and the jeans.  i love love love the fit of the top and the bold colors, but the sideways chevron was just a bit too much for me.  the great thing about stitch fix, is if i’m not in love with an item, i can send it back and leave a note for my stylist to let them know what i liked and what i didm;t, and my fixes will just keep getting better!

i really like the jeans as well!  its amazing how different a really nice pair of jeans can feel from the inexpensive ones i normally wear – they stayed nice and fit at the waist! i paired this outfit with wedges from payless.

one thing i like, and am looking forward to more of, is getting “pushed” a bit by stitch fix.  i really like this top, but would never have picked it out for myself.  the bright yellow is not normally a color i gravitate towards, but i love this top!

what i wore at the pleated poppy

it has really great details with the embroidery and a unique cut in the back.  these jeans are the same as the previous outfit, but i cuffed them this time.  i am still learning how to style these boots – i’m not super comfortable with them like this with skinny jeans, but its fun to try something new!

have you tried stitch fix yet?  it really has been fun and i’m excited for my next fix in may!

    So neat that you’ve gotten to try Stitch Fix.
    You look wonderful in every outfit!!
    I really like the dolman top, and love the last striped shirt!!

  2. 5

    How fun is that? Wow! I liked everything you got! Those jeans fit you beautifully! I will have to look at the site. It sounds like fun!

    Thank you for hosting! : )

    That dolman top is so pretty! I’ve been tempted to try Stitch Fix. Thanks for sharing your review!

    I think the chevron top looks fantastic, even if you’re not so comfortable with it. You can definitely carry off a bold print like that!

    I love that chevron top! Stitch Fix pushes me outside of my comfort zone too – and I need that! I got the same striped tunic this month and I am taking it on vacation next week. I am not sure how I am styling it though – maybe white pants? Great post! Susan

    First, I love the shoes you got from American Eagle! Such a great heel height and look! I’ve used Stitch Fix too and haven’t had a ton of luck. I should go back to them for a third try. Third time is the charm, right? That Dolman top is my favorite!

    Come link up with me at Whatcha Wearing Wednesday!

      yes, try again! i feel like we’re just ironing out the glitches and its getting better and better!

    I’ve been wanting to try Stitch Fix and seeing your post might push me to do it! I’m loving all of the outfits you wore but my favorite is the striped top with the yellow embellishment.

  8. 13

    OMG I love all those looks! I am sending my whole box back and I wasn’t going to do it again. I felt like all mine were a bit big and a bit off too. But you look great. I am rethinking….

      definitely rethink! go back and adjust your preferences and be sure to let them know the sizing is off. i feel like i have to be overly honest to make sure its all clear.

    Oh my goodness, I LOVE everything you received. That dress is amazing and you look so pretty in it. And that dolman top, so basic and amazing.

  10. 16

    I adore that first dress and jean jacket!


  11. 17

    Love the outfits.

    That dress is just beautiful! It looks really pretty on you, and the jeans and tank-top are cute too.

    I’ve yet to try Stich-Fix. I’m always late to every game, but I’m getting closer. :-)


  12. 18

    These are all great picks! I especially like the denim jacket and dress.

  13. 19

    Wow!! Your fix was amazing!! :) Love everything!!

  14. 20

    Great fix! Love the dress!

  15. 21

    Love the dolman top and how it’s fitted at the bottom! What brand is it? The dress is gorgeous as well. What a fun concept!

  16. 25

    Love your new duds! I would have kept the chevron top too but I’ve always liked bold pieces :) Fabulous job on styling everything!

  17. 26

    the striped tank and booties – dreamy!
    love that look.

    and thanks for hosting the most fun link up on the internet!!! : ))

    I too love the chevron top. Great color and it doesn’t look like every other chevron top that goes horizontally.

  20. 29

    Wow I was reading your about me section and right away thought you should get mommy/blogger of the year award. To homeschool, mommy, sew, have a shop and have an awesome blog. Your outfits are cute too. It was a pleasure to link up with you today. Rachel xo

    Though I’ve done much searching I’ve NEVER found a blue jean jacket that I felt comfortable and non-linebakerish in–would you mind sharing the brand?

  22. 31

    I LOVE the pieces you got. The chevron top is my favorite and those skinny jeans rock! You look fabulous! Thanks so much for hosting once more.

  23. 32

    Such great outfits! Love all your AE sandals and those cropped skinny pants from Target…I was just there this weekend…wish I saw those!!

  24. 33

    All of the outfits looked great on you. This is the first I’ve heard of Stitch Fix, but I think I will give it a try. I tend to buy the same things all the time so it would give me an excuse to try something new. Thanks for the heads up.

    Love the outfits! What brand are the jeans? So great!

  26. 35

    i love what they picked for you! any chance you could tell me what their prices run. like for tops and such. i am pretty thrifty and don’t want to try it if the clothing is out of my price range. i usually shop for clothes at target and old navy, if that gives you any idea of what i am comfortable with spending ;)

    Love the items you got from Stitch Fix! Do you mind if I ask how tall you are? I’m 5’10 and can have a hard time finding clothes that are long enough. I’ve been hesitant to try Stich Fix thinking I may run into that problem with them.

      i’m 5’6″, and even 4″ shorter than you i run into that problem! you give all your measurements to stitch fix so they can work around your figure.
