Richmond has been hot lately, and during unseasonably warm spells, the temptation to break out my summer clothing skyrockets. Part of the reason is that towards the end of any season my wardrobe tends to feel drab and boring. That’s also why I rely on Stitch Fix to inspire my closet and prevent me from recycling the same couple outfits over and over again.
Stitch Fix is not the most budget friendly option for buying clothes but it’s a great way to discover new trends and styles that you would normally overlook. I also love the Stitch Fix style cards, that offer head-to-toe styling tips for each item in your box. The styling tips can also offer a new perspective to items you already own. It’s amazing how small tweaks to your everyday look can make you feel dramatically different. Those cards have helped reduce the time spent staring into the abyss of my closest every morning as I wonder what to wear.
And lastly, Stitch Fix announced earlier this week they are launching shoes. To celebrate I’m hosting my first Stitch Fix giveaway! So update your style profile to include your shoe size and request shoes in your next fix.
Here are the contents of my 8th Stitch Fix box:
41HAWTHORN Shalley Split Neck Blouse, S ($48) - Stitch Fix has consistently sent me beautiful printed tops and this one is no exception. The lightweight fabric offers a dressier feel that is sleek and flattering. My favorite part, is the vibrant color that feels ideal for Spring. Although I wanted to love this top, the armholes are awkwardly large and the shirt is hand wash only. As a mom with a toddler this is not a practical option.
KENSIE Rebekah Stretch Crepe Blazer, S ($88) - A classic blazer is a wardrobe stable everyone should own. It easily transitions from day to night and can be coupled with everything from a casual tee to a more sophisticated blouse. This blazer is stretchy and soft. The shrunken fit, 3 quarter length sleeves and single button offers a modern and feminine feel. I especially love the polka dot lining. Extremely comfortable and casual.
KUT FROM THE KLOTH Haiden Straight Leg Jean, 2 ($88) - Stitch Fix introduced me to the denim brand, Kut from the Kloth, in my 4th Stitch Fix box and the Kate boyfriend style has easily become one of my favorite pairs of jeans. I like that they are slouchy in the right places, while still fitted through the hips. The Haiden straight leg style has a similar fit, but is slightly tighter around the calf and ankle (I have large calves). The cuff is stitched so the jean hits right above my ankle (I’m 5'7) (the stitch can easily be undone). The cropped length pairs perfectly with these Sperry Top-Sider canvas lace-ups for the perfect casual spring look.
PAPERMOON Jepson Woven Hem Knit Top, S ($54) - I’m a stripe addict and own an excessive number of striped items. I love the extra detail at the bottom of this top. The lightweight material is the perfect winter-to-spring transition piece. And the turquoise color pairs perfectly with my taupe Dolce Vita booties
LOVEAPPELLA Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt, S ($64) - Now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve tried to limit the number of casual tees and sweatshirts I own. While Stitch Fix has been a huge help in that effort, when I pulled out this sweatshirt, I immediately knew it was a keeper. I love that it’s insanely soft and comfortable. It’s more fitted than your typical sweatshirt and can be easily worn without looking sloppy. Definitely a new Stitch Fix favorite.
