A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Stitch Fix #17: Fashion and function for mom!

Saturday, February 27, 2016

It's been an insane month around here. I got an unfortunate bout of the stomach flu. Then Henry got croup. Then Dan came down with a cold. And then Henry got an ear infection. Non. Stop. Illness around here. So, suffice it to say we haven't been doing a whole lot of errand running. 

To be completely honest, errand running is just plain tough with a one-year-old. We're in. We get what we need. We're out. There's not a lot of lingering. And there's absolutely zero percent chance of us trying anything on in the store. So, Stitch Fix has become even more of a lifesaver than it was before! I'm totally willing to spend a little more on clothing if it means I don't have to leave my bedroom to do it! 

If you don't know about Stitch Fix (<--Referral link!), let me give you a little rundown. Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription service, and you decide how frequently, or infrequently, you'd like a shipment. You'll fill out a detailed style profile about your sizes, style preferences, and budget (and it's super fun to fill out the profile to see what your style preferences are!). 

Then, you decide when you'd like to receive a shipment! Stitch Fix will send you five clothing items or accessories to try on in your own home! This is perfect for seeing if the pieces you receive will work with the pieces you already have. Your Fix also arrives with detailed styling cards to give you ideas of how to wear each item. Each Fix costs $20, but the fee is credited toward anything you decide to keep. When you've decided what you don't want, you simply check out online and mail the items back in the prepaid mailing envelope. If you keep everything, you score a 25% discount! I love that I can work with my current wardrobe to see what will work best with what I already have. 

And, if someone signs up through your referral link, you get a $25 credit to use toward your next purchase! 

You can see my previous Fixes here:


For my most recent Fix, Serena was my stylist again. Serena is the bomb.com! She really listens to my specifications and works hard to stay within my budget (AKA as inexpensive as possible). This time, I asked for function and fashion for a mom on the go. And Serena totally delivered! What do I keep? What do I send back? Help! 


1. Octavia Madison Polka Dot Infinity Scarf, $28

This scarf is kind of adorable, and I love that I could wear it with so many things. It would look great with a tone-on-tone chambray shirt, or, it could easily pair with a white v-neck for an easy, on the go look. Infinity scarfs are kind of my jam anyway, so I like this a lot! 

2, 41 Hawthorn Lisbon Stud Detail Blouse, $58
This shirt reminds me of the Pomelo 3/4 length sleeve top from Fix #6 (and I loved that shirt so much, I kept it!)! The details are me - I love the studs, and the sleeve length is perfect, but I'm  not sure that this color is me. What do you think? Can I pull off this pink? 

3.RD Style Nani Side Slit Pullover Sweater, $68
Not going to lie, if I was planning to breastfeed for quite a bit longer, I would look at this sweater as more of a contender because it's slit so far up the sides, it would make super easy access for feeding my bambino! But, I'm not sure I can buy it based on just that. :) I like the stripes, but overall, the sweater seems just a bit too big and bulky. Plus, I can't decide what you wear under it with those giant high side slits! 

4. Loveappella Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt, $64
5. Rune Winnie Legging, $48
The leggings are cute, but what you can't see is that the waist band gaps on me, so it wouldn't be smooth under something tight, so unfortunately, those are getting automatically knocked out. But this sweatshirt... I think I kind of love it! It's a great color, and the neckline is so fun! The sleeves are slightly short on me, but it doesn't bother me so much. I feel like I could throw this on with jeans or leggings and be ready to head out the door! 

So what do you think? What would you keep if you were me? What would definitely get sent back? Would LOVE your feedback, sweet readers!

  2. I think the color of the pink blouse looks lovely on you. I agree with your take on the black & white sweater -- it's too big and kind of boxy (although an interesting style.)
