September is here & with it some cooler temperatures in Illinois. I honestly love summer, so I am kind of dreading the cold & dreary, but the one thing I do love about fall? I bet you can guess: CLOTHES. Cardigans are my fav. I could live in them.
(If you are new to Stitch Fix skip to the end of this post for a short description of the whats and how-tos & for a link to sign up for your own box of happiness!)
For my September fix, here’s what my note said:
And Kate did a great job!
This time I DID NOT PEEK at the fix before it came (torture) so when I opened the box, I had no idea what would be inside.
My initial thoughts were: There wasn’t a lot of color & the printed pants were a little “out there” for me. But after reading Kate’s note, the pants were my “out of the box” item, so that totally made sense!
I loved the idea of putting the elephant top with the printed pants after reading the note, so that’s exactly what I did!
Let’s dive in!
Item # 1: Evolution by Cyrus Ladera Open Cardigan
Basically as soon as I felt this cardigan, I knew I would keep it. It’s SO soft.
It’s nice & long in the sleeves, a great neutral color (so it will go with everything), and it’s SO soft (did I mention that already?).
I will almost always say YES to a cardi.
I plan to keep it!
Item # 2: Tart Milla Crew Neck Knit Top
Well this top just screams: FALL. The color combination is fantastic!
It is nice & long, form-fitting without being too tight, and a fun piece. 🙂
I’m on the fence about this one – I like it, but not sure if I would often wear it. Plus, I think almost $60 for a knit top (no matter the colors/stripes) is steep. What do you all think?
Items # 3 & 4: Liverpool Anita Printed Skinny Pant AND Pixley Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse
As I mentioned before – Kate suggested that I pair these two items together and add a statement necklace to the outfit, which I did:
I have to admit, I really liked the 2 items together – it felt much more edgy that I typically wear.
The pants: so they are more of a legging material than a jean and pretty form-fitting. They are also super long (for all my tall girls out there).
The top is very blouse-y on me & boxy (according to my husband/photographer)
The elephants are CUTE though.
I’m pretty sure I won’t keep the pants, but am unsure on the top – what do you all think?
Item # 5: Brixon Ivy Sylvester Split Neck Blouse
You guys. The color of this top is gorgeous. I love bold jewel tones like this!
I kept it simple with the outfit & loved that I still felt dressy.
My husband thought this was too boxy, too, like the Elephant top. But I like it! My only hesitation is that it’s Polyester (I’m preferring knit items more and more these days) and that the length is a little short. I’m undecided on this one, too!
Overall this was a great fix! Even the “out of the box” item was a fun try-on. I love that about Stitch Fix: you style things you never would otherwise.
