I go through periods where I stick to the same basic ensemble, lately it has been these total mom jeans (which I love and Aaron hates), with a tucked in tee and these Sperry Top-Sider sneaks. It has felt like the quintessential laid back look for those scorching summer days. In fact, I rarely stray from a look that I feel comfortable in. This is most evident in my hair style, which I haven’t deviated from since 5th grade. I’ve got the same side part and shoulder length hair that is always pulled up into a generic pony tail.
Maybe it’s the fact that I’m embarking on a big change (I’m teaching my first college class this semester), or that I can finally feel the shift away from the summer heat, but I’ve been feeling more adventurous lately. I’ve said it before, but my favorite thing about Stitch Fix is that it pulls me outside my comfort zone. And it’s not to say that I love every style that they send me, but I love that the Stylists listen, and make thoughtful selections that feel tailored to me. Here are the contents of my 11th Stitch Fix box.
And lastly, to celebrate the end of summer (and summer heat!) I’m hosting a Stitch Fix Giveaway! Scroll to the bottom to enter.
PIXLEY Hume Buckle Detail Tank, S ($58)
When the weather reaches the upper nineties, all I want to wear is breezy, non-clingy tops. With linen being the ideal lightweight summer fabric, a major downside is how easily and quickly it wrinkles. But despite that I like the way it feels on unseasonably hot days. My favorite part is the cross back detail. My only complaint is the arm holes run a little low, making it hard to hide bra straps. Although not technically a cropped top, this tank has a boxy structure that makes it feel shorter than most of my shirts. To avoid an exposed midsection, it pairs perfectly with high waisted pants. It’s the perfect thing to wear to an end of summer cook out or outdoor event.
MAVI Carrie Released Hem Denim Gaucho, 2 ($98)
Gauchos are a tough look to pull off and I can’t say that they work for me. I attempted a casual look, and opted for a striped tee shirt tucked in to keep the waistline defined. The end result is a slightly awkward look that just doesn’t flatter my body type.
MARKET & SPRUCE Evangelista Snap Back Chambray Top, S ($54)
The open back silhouette has been trendy over the last few seasons. It’s a conservative yet alluring look that can elevate an otherwise casual look. Combined with my current obsession with all things denim, I love this effortless top. I was initially disappointed because I was set on the Cybill Chambray Top after I saw it on this post from Jessica over at A Monkey and his Mama. Luckily, my Stylist is great and found this alternative.
ZAD Mel Beaded Wrap Bracelet ($28)
I typically gravitate towards gold tones, but I love the simplicity and style of this bracelet. I love the minimalist feel and that it easily works with almost any basic. Unfortunately, this bracelet was an awkward length, where it was too small to wrap around my wrist 4 times but was way too big when wrapped around 3 times.
MARKET & SPRUCE Dafne Knit Maxi Dress, S ($88)
I’ve always wanted to be a dress person because I adore the countless adorable options, but when it comes down to it I’m most at home in jeans and a t-shirt. This maxi dress is made of the softest jersey fabric, and has just the right amount of stretch to make it feel incredibly comfortable. However, I found myself inadvertently sucking in the entire time I had it on. It turns out that soft stretchy fabric that makes the dress so comfortable, also shows every tiny roll and curve.
So that’s all for my latest fix. If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s an online personal styling service and the easiest way to add charming new pieces to your wardrobe!
