One of the best feelings is when you go to check your mailbox and a Stitch Fix package appears. I always look forward to my fixes because I love being able to try new styles within the comfort of my own home with no pressure to purchase a thing. I’ve really enjoyed working with my personal stylist, Whitney, because over time she has really come to know my style, anticipate my needs, and find new items for me that I wouldn’t have otherwise picked out for myself! Convenience is key for me, especially now, and I really enjoy being able to keep the things I like, using the $20 styling fee as a credit towards any of my purchases, and sending back those that I don’t using their prepaid shipping envelope that comes in my box. I swear they make the whole process so easy!
These days shopping for maternity wear can be a challenge and ultimately time consuming, especially as I enter into my third trimester on Monday. I am at the point in my pregnancy where I don’t want to spend too much on items I may only get a little bit of use out of, but still being in need for comfortable pants and tops that can expand with my growing belly. Luckily, Whitney time and time again has been able to find items for me that are cute, comfortable and pieces that I can wear postpartum or even wear agin down the road with baby #2.
This month’s fix is one of my best yet and I found myself loving practically everything inside. So let’s take a look at what I received…
One piece that I have had my eye on was an Aztec open cardigan. I scoured Pinterest for the perfect design and color and made sure to pin it to my Maternity Fashions Pinterest board and Whitney found me something very similar to what I had in mind! She picked for me this Willow Draped Cardigan from Pixley and I swear I didn’t want to take it off once I put it on. It’s made of thicker material, which is perfect since it’s been averaging around 65 degrees lately and it will be great for flying with when we travel to Texas for Christmas this week.
Pixely Willow Draped Cardigan: $78 – KEEP
One piece of maternity wear that I would consider an essential (and something no one can have too many of) are knit tops and tees. I was looking to add a bit more color into my wardrobe this time around and Whitney picked for me this Market & Spruce Maternity Sollas knit top. I absolutely love the color (it’s perfect for winter!) and the top itself is so soft. I love that it fits like a glove, but leaves room in the belly area for growth. This is the perfect top to layer and pair with my new open cardigan 😉
Market & Spruce Knit Top: $38 – KEEP
I have to admit one thing: a difficult aspect to using Stitch Fix and being pregnant has been finding maternity jeans that fit and have a full panel. Although I have received jeans in the past, the panels have been made of fabric and therefore didn’t stay up so I had to return them. I altered my note to my stylist to reflect that I need a full panel that is elastic and she delivered! So a helpful tip to fellow preggo-Stitch Fixers: mention you want a full panel with an elastic waistband!
Whitney sent me these Mavi Maternity Skinny Jeans and once I put them on I didn’t want to take them off (I’m wearing them now as I type)! I know you can’t so much tell their color in these photos (I wore these jeans for all of the photos in this post) but I’m in love with the navy blue color. It’s deep enough to pass as almost black, but then in the sun there’s a pop of color. I definitely wouldn’t have picked this out myself so I’m grateful Whitney thought to include this!
Mavi Colette Maternity Skinny Jean (Navy): $98 – KEEP
Citizens of Humanity Kennedy Maternity Skinny Jean (Black): $188 – RETURN (too small)
I wanted to love the black skinny jeans from Citizens of Humanity (not photographed), but alas I couldn’t even get them above my knee. Just goes to show that not all jeans are created equal – even maternity jeans (I swear their size 12 are really a size 2)!
This next top is another comfortable piece that I enjoyed wearing around the house. Unfortunately due to the relaxed fit of the top it doesn’t photograph so well and overall I’m not sure how flattering it is by itself. However, with that being said I love how comfy and cozy it is! I loved wearing it so I’m a bit on the fence on whether or not I should keep it. What do you guys think?
Full Moon Ardiri V-Neck Knit Top: $48 – UNDECIDED
Overall I have to say that I really enjoyed trying on all of my items in this fix and felt as though my stylist did a fantastic job of finding pieces that I needed and really stuck to the very specific notes I gave her (for tips on how to ensure a great fix, read my suggestions here). I was able to walk away with a new pair of pants, top, and cardigan that I know I will wear many times this season.
If you’re still looking for a fun gift for a special gal in your life I would highly recommend gifting Stitch Fix! I’ve loved this service and have been using it for almost 2 years – besides, I only share brands I love on this blog! I can’t really think of the last time I went out to shop for myself (besides online) and this is large in part due to me looking forward to my fixes each month. Take the leap today and see how Stitch Fix works for you!
