One of the reasons I love winter is for the opportunity to wear thicker layers. While I typically favor more simple basics, Stitch Fix has helped expand my style to include a few trendier items. With an 11 month old baby at home, I asked my stylist to send me something that is “mom-friendly” but not “mom-ish”—can be washed easily (i.e., no dry cleaning!), isn’t too low cut or short (I’m constantly bending down to pick things up) but still makes me feel attractive.
Here are the contents of my 7th Stitch Fix box:
MARKET & SPRUCE Bernadette Lace Overlay Raglan Top, S ($58)
I love pairing unconventional fabrics, it allows the items to be more versatile. While my style isn’t overly feminine, I was pleasantly surprised by this lace top. The lace pattern is intricate but not too busy. The lightweight jersey on the sleeves and back make the shirt feel contemporary.
FUN2FUN Torrey Henley Button Top, S ($48)
Plaid is the ultimate cozy, lazy-day kind of print. This shirt is remarkably soft and while I love it’s slouchy factor, when paired with a more tapered pant, it’s also work appropriate. I especially love the collarless neckline, which adds a modern sophistication. The cut is conservative but could still be playful if paired with leggings and flats.
MARGARET M Emer Bootcut Pant, S ($98)
These pants don’t have much hanger appeal but don’t be too quick to judge. Once I put them on, I immediately felt 10 pounds slimmer! They sit high on the waist and fall below the ankle with a slight flare. The cut is flattering for any body type. The fabric is extremely stretchy and pulls on like leggings. I usually prefer more structured pants but I like how comfortable these are to wear while still looking professional.
41HAWTHORN Rowson Colorblock Striped Sweater, S ($58)
I love color blocking because it allows you to combine colors that normally wouldn’t work together (e.g., green/blue, blue/black). This sweater was the first item in my box and I immediately loved it. The material is so soft and the style is so versatile.
MARGARET M Emer Printed Knit Straight Leg Pant, S ($98)
Skinny pants can be hard for someone with larger calves but straight legged pants have a slightly wider leg opening and feel a lot less intimidating. For a casual look, I chose a looser fitting t-shirt and denim jacket so the pants are still the focal point. I tucked in the front of the shirt to keep the waistline defined. I love the illusion of long legs that the high waisted pant creates.
