My Fix came this weekend!! It’s a little ridiculous how excited I get when my Fix comes. Think kid in candy store and you’ve got the picture. While this Fix wasn’t perfect and I’m not keeping everything, it did take me out of my comfort zone which is one of the main reasons I love Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix Collage - April 2016

With the weather getting warmer, I’m ready to break out of my sweaters and boots. I’ll be ready for those again come October but, for now, I need (yes, need) brighter colors and lighter fabrics.

First item out of the box this month was the Giovanni Straight Leg Jean from Level 99 ($98). These pants made me nervous for a few reasons. First, they’re red which is a little crazy for me. Second, they’re skinny straight fit which isn’t normally my style. Third, a few months ago I changed my profile to make my pant size smaller. So, combo of red + skinny straight fit + smaller size, I was skeptical these could work.

I started by putting the Tameron Button Down Bounse from 41Hawthorn ($58) and Samara Patent Leather Ballet Flat from Yosi Samra ($86) with the jeans. The timing of the blue color was perfect since baseball season is just starting. It’s like the stylist knows I have a weakness for Royals blue 🙂 As for the jeans, surprisingly they fit great and the red is really fun and different.

I added the Coffeeshop Inga Textured Knit Jacket ($78) to this outfit. This jacket is really soft and comfortable and apparently this side zipper is the ‘in’ thing(?). I’m still not convinced.

The shoes that came with my Fix this month were just ok. They’re comfortable but at $86, they’re more than I typically would spend on a pair of flats.

Next, I tried the Jolli Knit Top from Loveappella ($58) with the jeans from last month’s Fix. I love these pants and wear them a lot so it’s important new tops to go well with them. This top is really soft and comfortable and something I would wear often. However, I’ve started noticing I have a lot of stripes in my closet. I’m not sure why or how it happened but I apparently have a stripe addiction. Channeling my inner prisoner, maybe?

Sooooo…..the red jeans and blue top are now mine. Me buying red, skinny straight jeans is crazy but they’re so soft and comfortable, I couldn’t pass them up. And, like I said, I have a weakness for blue so that top was kind’ve a no-brainer. The jacket isn’t something I’m looking to add for Spring, the shoes are more than I want to spend, and the striped shirt is, well, striped and no more stripes are needed.

Here’s a breakdown of everything received in this month’s Fix:

  1. Samara Patent Leather Ballet Flat from Yosi Samra ($86) – Return
  2. Giovanni Straight Leg Jean from Level 99 ($98) – Keep
  3. Inga Textured Knit Jacket from Coffeeshop ($78) – Return
  4. Jolli Knit Top from Loveappella ($58) – Return
  5. Cameron Button Down Blouse from 41Hawthorn ($58) – Keep

Now the long wait until my next Fix arrives begins…

  1. I always love a pair of Level 99 jeans! Just an FYI that your post didn’t push into the link-up because you forgot to include a link back to my post and the image for the link-up was missing. You’re more than welcome to fix the problem and re-submit for the link-up 🙂

  2. GO ROYALS!!!!
    I love the pants and button up on you. They look great. Could even dress up with a statement necklace, and they’ll both transition to spring or fall well.

    • Thanks, Michele. I’ve worn them and love them but you’re right, I’ll probably get more use out of them than I think. It’ll take some time though 🙂
