Oh, hello there! And happy almost fall!
As we prepare for our upcoming month-long European trip that will be taking us all over the place, it’s important that my travel capsule wardrobe is functional, cute, and easy to layer and travel with. After trying a new style service for jeans and finding success, I was eager to give Stitch Fix a go once more to help me find just a few more pieces to finish off my capsule – ensuring that I’m good to go for the entire month while abroad.
For this fix I asked my long-time stylist, Whitney, to find me easy-to-travel-with pieces that are lightweight, layerable, and compliment the outfits I’m already packing. With that I requested a cross body purse in a fun color, blouses, and most importantly, an outerwear jacket. She did a wonderful job finding me exactly what I was looking for! So, let’s take a peek at my September fix!
Daniel Rainn Lattice Trim Blouse | KEEP
I. LOVE. THIS. BLOUSE! Whitney always hits it out of the park when it comes to finding me sleeveless and lightweight blouses that have just the perfect cut and detailing. Florals sometimes have the chance to look ‘old lady-ish’ but this top is a unique piece for my closet. It’s taken some time, but I’m exploring different patterns and materials when it comes to my overall style and I’m happy to take that leap with Stitch Fix – and especially when I receive something like this.
I love that this blouse is fitted through the bust but flows naturally through the waist, with cinching in all the right places. The lattice design around the trim of the blouse adds another fun and flirty touch. Also, I love that it’s black and lets the floral colors shine through – definitely something new for me.

Marc New York Cargo Rain Jacket | RETURN/EXCHANGE
In the note to my stylist I mentioned how much I was in need for an outerwear piece for our upcoming Europe trip. I wanted something lightweight, but cozy, durable, and if possible water resistant. I had pinned a few different jackets, including this Marc New York piece, in hopes she could find something perfect to add to my capsule for the month while abroad. When I unboxed my fix I was so excited to see exactly what I had asked for.
The jacket itself is a cargo rain jacket whose inner liner is lightweight and perfect for layering with my other sweaters and tops. I love the drawstring detail as well as the many cargo pockets. And let’s take a moment to admire that deep navy blue color! Whitney was awesome to include pieces that are XXL (so happy that Stitch Fix provides such sizes), however in outerwear I like them to be more fitted and this jacket was just too big on me. Luckily for me, Stitch Fix allows me to exchange sizes for items I want to keep – but unfortunately an XL in this particular jacket was sold out.
Luckily though, I’ve requested an outerwear only fix for the end of the month so with fingers crossed hopefully Whitney can find something beautiful for me!

41Hawthorne Sweater Dress | RETURN
This dress had so much potential to be a keeper, but unfortunately the cut just wasn’t flattering on me (and hence no photos of it on). It fit well overall, but where it flares in the waist didn’t sit properly and made me look drab. I love knit dresses and this one has a cute zipper detailing in the back, which is a fun addition to the overall design of the dress. Perhaps if it were more of a fit and flare it would have been more flattering, but I can’t wait to request other knit dresses like this one in future fixes!
Street Level Tassel Bucket Bag | RETURN
This bag is absolutely gorgeous and I love the plum color! Definitely different from anything I already own and the tassels add a fun and feminine touch. I did ask for a cross body bag in my notes, but prior to receiving this fix I had already found an amazing cross body that is more durable for our trip – and can double as a diaper bag. For simple occasions this bucket bag would have gone well with practically every outfit, but with having a toddler I need my purses to serve multiple purposes and have the ability to keep up.
So, what is so great about Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix first began as a skeptical leap of style faith. I wasn’t quite sure that some stylist over the internet could really find 5 pieces that would not only fit me, but be looks I’d actually want to wear. For a $20 styling fee I received my first fix and was initially so impressed with how my stylist heard exactly what I was looking for and delivered on it. I still wear a number of those first purchases today (and that was over 3 years ago) and enjoy adding new and fun pieces along the way.
I’ve journeyed with Stitch Fix through the ups and downs of my weight and even through my pregnancy with their maternity styles. Since it’s been a couple of months since my last fix, I was so excited to see that they offer shoes now in addition to a new mens line. This just proves to me that Stitch Fix has a finger on the latest trends, but also keeps the needs of their customers in mind. I can only imaging how they’ll grow and expand into the future!
What about those referral links?
Because I created a free style profile I now have the ability to share my love of Stitch Fix with others. A referral simply allows me to earn a credit of $25, which essentially covers my styling fee for the next time I schedule a fix. Once you create a style profile you are given a special referral link and begin earning your own credits. Why not get a credit for something you use anyways? I am so appreciative to those who use my link because it helps me as a SAHM enjoy the little things like feeling good in a nice pair of jeans. So, thank you.
Which pieces are you loving on? What would you have kept from this fix? Have you considered trying Stitch Fix before? I’d love to chat with you!
