Getting My Fix: Stitch Fix Review 12

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix – As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own. May contain affiliate links.

Hello Friends!

As you may know, I’ve been getting Stitch Fix shipments for a little over a year now. I have had a pretty wonderful experience overall with them and love being surprised every month with cute clothing that they think would look great on me! I found out I was pregnant earlier this year and we are so excited to welcome a baby girl into the world this summer. I am excited to keep getting Stitch Fix shipments while I’m expecting! Did you guys know that Stitch Fix offers Maternity gear? I reviewed my first maternity fix a few weeks ago. I love that they allow me to try on different sizes as my bump grows bigger and bigger without the commitment of purchasing something!  Stitch Fix Maternity  is perfect for getting a few hand selected items to match your style and body type. Take a look at the goods they sent me this month:


1: Just Black- Fleur Maternity Frayed Hem Denim Shorts- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Just Black Fleur Frayed Hem Denim Jean Shorts I asked my stylist to send me some modest short options. My due date is in August so I know I am in for some hot months to come… I really liked the style of these shorts and the length was great. Unfortunately, they were just too snug in the waist area even with the elastic maternity band. It was so tight when I sat down. I know I would end up not wearing them because comfort has become my #1 priority lately!


2: Mismu Maternity- Prisca Maternity Cold Shoulder Knit Top- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Misimu Maternity Cold Shoulder Knit Top with Black and White StripesTo be completely honest with you guys- I hated this top.. I don’t know if it was the material being slightly ribbed and itchy.. the way the stripes accentuated the growing bump (in all the bad ways).. or if it was the fact that I really don’t love cold shoulder tops… either way this one was a firm no from me.


3: Berry Jewelry- Jacoby Fringe Pendant Necklace- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Berry Jewelry Jacoby Fringe Tassel NecklaceI also asked my stylist for some tassel inspired jewelry. I have a few earrings and bracelets with fringe tassels on them, and I have been really loving this trend! I liked the length of this necklace but I wasn’t a huge fan of the pearl center above the fringe. I knew I wouldn’t get that much use out of this one for the price so I sent it back hoping to find something a little more my style next time!


4: Gilli- Gabbiey Knit Maternity Maxi Dress- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Gilli Gabbiey KNit Maternity Maxi DressI love a good maxi dress in the summer, don’t you? They are perfect to combat the summer heat (without having to shave your legs, score!) This dress is a beautiful deep navy color and had a nice detailing on the shoulder and back. I opted to return this baby because the lenght was iffy.. if my bump got any bigger (which it will) it would no longer cover my sandals. Also, it had a cute crochet detail on the back but it did not cover my maternity bras which is a no-go right now.


5: Full Moon- Kassey Pocket Maternity Knit Top- ReturnedI really love most items I get from Full Moon. I feel like you become somewhat attached to certain brands when you use Stitch Fix frequently. Full Moon has been a good brand for me, and I honestly love most items they send from them! I liked this top a lot. It was stretchy and have a ton of give with the elastic sides. It would be great if only it wasn’t summer… I have no need for long sleeves right now. Cooking this baby makes me sweat just thinking about wearing this top in July! 


Are you expecting a little bundle of joy soon? Check out Stitch Fix Maternity to get some tailor made looks for your growing bump! Not expecting?

Getting My Fix- Stitch Fix Review 11

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix – As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

Hello Friends!

I am so excited to share with you some amazing items I received in my very first last Stitch Fix Maternity shipment! I have been getting a much bigger bump the last few weeks and regular clothing is out of the picture these days. I am so happy Stitch Fix has started having maternity gear- and a huge selection of brands too! I requested some every day clothing and a dress to wear to my baby shower. The stylist Lindsey said they didn’t have a lot of dress selection right now so she sent me a maxi and some more casual wear. Let me show you what I got:


1: Loveapella- Carlita Knit Maternity Maxi Dress- ReturnedI really like Loveapella, and tend to get and keep a lot of items from them. However, I just was not feeling this dress. I don’t like purple all that much, and the print seemed very bright to me. It also was a tad short and could only be worn with flat sandals. I opted to return this one because I wouldn’t be wearing it too much, and who needs maternity dressed you’ll never wear taking up space?


2: Le Lis- Alston Cowl Neck Pullover Maternity Knit Top- ReturnedThis top was very very big. I mean, you can’t even see a hint of my bump in this top… The stylist Lindsey said it was getting great reviews for the postpartum  fit and suggested it with leggings. It was very soft and comfortable but the baby is due in August, and there is no way I’ll be needing a cowl neck sweater then so I sent this one back.


3: Full Moon- Peppy 3/4 Sleeve Maternity Knit Top- KeptThis cute, fun and soft top was just the ticket. I loved how it was fitted so it showed off the bump (don’t want people to have to guess, right?). It has gathered sides so it will stretch and grow over the upcoming weeks, but will also be great to toss on after baby arrives. I also love this one with white jeans for the summer! I kept this one for sure!


4: Market & Spruce- Cindra Crochet Cargo Vest- ReturnedI wanted to love this vest so badly. I have been searching for a great army green vest for a while now and never really find anything. I loved that this had little crochet details around the pockets and neck. This one was just a little too big and I worried it would be really too big after the baby arrives. I wish it had a cinch at the waist or something to accommodate, but it didn’t so I returned it.


5: Romolo- Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace- Returned

Man-oh-man. I had pinned this necklace on my Pinterest Page a few times and I really love it. I was so excited when I saw it in this shipment. Unfortunately, when I opened the adorable paper they had it wrapped in, I saw that the chain was broken. Stitch Fix has a great return policy and I could easily get a replacement- but now I am worried another one would break too. I am rough on my necklaces, ya’ll. I sent this one back, and it hurts.


Thats it folks! I was so excited to get my first maternity fix! Even if I only kept one item, it still was nice to try stuff on and see what was working or not working for my ever changing body. I was able to give some pretty specific feedback for my next one, so hopefully I get some more stuff to love! Happy to share with you guys- check in again soon- or follow along on Instagram and Facebook!

Until Next Time,

Getting My Fix: Stitch Fix Review 10

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix – As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

Hello Friends!

I am so excited to share with you some amazing items I received in my last Stitch Fix shipment! Last week my husband and I finally announced our very exciting news that we will be expecting our first child this summer! We are so excited for this big change in our lives. Speaking of big changes… my belly is steadily growing each week. While I forgot to change my profile before this shipment arrived, I made sure to update and notify my stylist for next month to receive their new Stitch Fix Maternity gear! They have also recently launched Stitch Fix for Men and Stitch Fix Plus Sizes! They seriously have something for just about everyone now! Some of you have been asking my how exactly Stitch Fix works… Well, I got you covered! First create an account here. Fill out the style profile and sizing information. The more specific you are the better! You can even add a link to a style or fashion Pinterest board to show them what you love.  Once you complete your profile, set up a date you’d like to receive your fix. A personal stylist will review all of that information and select five items they think you’ll love. If you download the Stitch Fix App, you can edit your profile and track shipments right from your smart phone. I love seeing this beautiful box on my door step! Your first fix will arrive right on schedule. Open up your fix and take a look! They provide you with detailed outfit ideas and a personalized note from your stylist. You’ll have time to try everything on and decide which items you’re going to keep. There is a $20 styling fee which will be deducted from your total if you purchase anything! In your package will be an invoice which lays out the price of each item. You only pay for what you’re going to keep. If you want to return anything, just package up the items in the prepaid packaging and leave it for the post man to pick up! Go onto your app or the Stitch Fix website to check out, give feedback and schedule your next fix. Easy as that!

Another question I get a lot, is what is the average price per item in my shipments? It honestly depends on the brands they send and the item. A nicer jacket or amazing denim will run around $60, while a cute top might be closer to $30. You can also give them a price point in your style profile! Now, onto my fix from this month!


1: 41Hawthorn- Ayesha Textured Button Detail Pullover- ReturnedLook at that little bump! This sweater was cute, and comfortable. I opted to return it because I have so many white sweaters already, but it was a good one! I paired it with dark denim jeans an camel colored boots.


2: Pixley- Abriella Waffle Knit Cardigan- KeptHoly cow, this sucker is so comfortable. Like, really really comfortable. Its a great neutral dark grey and has become a great item to throw on over a plain t-shirt to run to the store this winter. I kept the same dark jeans and camel boots for this look.


3: Loveappella- Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt- Kept

I was on the fence about this one, but my husband convinced me to keep it. Boy, he was right! This simple purple sweatshirt has become a weekly part of my new “comfort-is-key” pregnancy looks. It is soft, light weight and easy to throw on with jeans. I am so happy I decided to keep this one!


4: Mystree- Kotor Plaid Front Knit Top- ReturnedI really wanted to love this one when I saw it in my box. I really did. I like plaid, and the material was great! There was just something weird about the fit on me. I’m not sure if it was my growing baby bump or these weirdly large armpits.. but I had to return this one.


5: Toms- Classic Slip-On Flats- ReturnedMy stylist sent me this pair of red Toms. I love the idea of Toms, and the amazing things the company does. I know most people swear they are so comfortable and love theirs. They just seem to no have enough support for my taste. The canvas sides seem to rub slightly weird, and I do not like it. I sent this pair back because I knew I was not going to be wearing them too much.

Thats a wrap! Be sure to check out Stitch Fix if you’re interested! I love their services and would highly recommend it for anyone interested! Let me know what you thought of this shipment in the comments below. I love hearing from you!

Until Next Time,

Ashley

Getting My Fix: Stitch Fix Review 9

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix- As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

Every August my family takes a trip down to the shore. I love being on the beach and taking a moment to unwind and enjoy time with my loved ones. Its not too often that I get to spend multiple days in a row with my parents and brother, so it is always something I look forward to. This family vacation is also always something I look back on, as we create so many great memories. Last year we ventured out to Assateague Island.  Have you heard of it? It is a National Seashore Park where wild ponies roam free on the beaches. I know, cool right?! You can also drive your car right out on the sand and drive down the beaches for miles. We drove until we couldn’t see anyone else and set up our little “camp”. We saw a few ponies swimming in the ocean and walking the beaches. The island is such fun memory for my family. We are heading out for our family trip this week and I look forward to new adventures this time. My friends over at Stitch Fix are sharing a super fun summer bucket list challenge with 50 ways to create your own great summer memories! I know I will be checking a few of these off on our trip next week!

I was so excited to open this box!Actually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix


1: Loveappella- Zola Knit Dress- Returned
Actually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Zola-Knit-DressActually-Ashley-Zola-Knit-DressThis is a cute dress, and was so super soft and comfy! I ended up returning it because it felt a hair too short for me, but overall I loved the look! I paired this striped dress with a red bubble necklace that I got as a gift from my dear friend, Michelle and red pointed toe flats for a nautical look!


2: Mia- Britta Bow Ballet Flats- Returned
Actually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Britta-Ballet-FlatActually-Ashley-Britta-Bow-Ballet-Flats
Did you guys know Stitch Fix added shoes?! How exciting! I got a pair in my last fix that I wear all of the time. I requested some nude flats a few fixes ago, and my stylist remembered! Unfortunately, I already found a pair on my own that I love so I returned these babies.


3: Kut from the Kloth- Jansen Linen Shorts- Returned
Actually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Jansen-Printed-ShortActually-Ashley-Jansen-Printed-Linen-ShortTruth be told, I have never felt more pale than I did wearing those shorts. Insert the ghost emoji here… I did love the cut and shape of these, and they had a elastic waist band which made them fit perfectly.. but I could’t get past the highlighter-lime-green-yellow color. I paired these with my Papermoon Stanford Mixed Material Top which made the color a little less jarring.


4: Crescent- Romee Scallop trim Chambray Top- Kept
Actually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Romee-Scallop-TopActually-Ashley-Romee-Scallop-Trim-TopThis is such a perfect summer BBQ top! I packed it for the beach trip so be on the look out for it on Instagram! It is a tad too big in the sides, but I am hoping a quick trip to the tailor will make it perfect. The scallop detail on the neckline was just too cute to pass up. I paired it with Target White Sandals and White Skinny Jeans with gold zipper detail.


5: Creative Concepts- Kaeli Eyelet Dress- ReturnedActually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Kaeli-Eyelet-DressActually-Ashley-Kaeli-Eyelet-DressLooking back at these photos, I am wondering if I made a mistake returning this dress. It was a great color and a nice shape. I love the detail in the neckline. I just already own a dozen coral dresses. With us moving in a few weeks, I am in a constant “purge” mode right now and sent this one back.

Now lets get to my latest shipment! I requested summer shorts and fun flats. I have such a hard time fitting into shorts so I was excited to see what my stylist had in store for me!


1: Margaret M- Lea Printed Short- ReturnedActually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Margaret-Lea-Short

Actually-Ashley-Margaret-Lea-Short

I loved these shorts! The small scale print and texture of the fabric was perfect! The shorts fit perfectly over my bottom and legs, but they were slightly high waisted. Around my waist they were very loose, causing the entire short to keep slipping down. I had to return these even though the style was a A+. I paired this with my Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse, a necklace and flats all from previous Stitch Fix shipments!


2: Pistola- Elouise Rolled Cuff Short- ReturnedActually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Pistola-Elouise-ShortActually-Ashley-Pistola-Elouise-Denium-Short  I love cute denim shorts for a casual summer look. These would be great for picnics, hiking or to grab lunch on a summer afternoon. While I liked these shorts, they were very short on me. I tend to like my summer shorts to be a bit more modest so I opted to return these. I paired these shorts with a TJ Maxx found lace top and Target Flip-Flops for a casual look.


3: Pixley- Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse- KeptActually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Pixley-Ellie-Blouse

Actually-Ashley-Pixley-Ellie-BlouseI love how bright and happy this blouse is! The mint color is great for this time of year, and the cut of this top fit me perfectly! I love the little cuff detail on the sleeves as well. I layered this top with a long necklace like this one from Charming Charlies, nude pumps and dark skinny jeans.


4: Mia- Nona Laser-Cut Flats- KeptActually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Mia-Laser-Cut-Flat

Actually-Ashley-Nona-Cut-FlatsI am always searching for great flats. I do not want anything too flashy, but I like a little bit of detail on my shoes. These have that perfect amount of interest without being a statement. I am so excited that Stitch Fix has added shoes into their shipments. I love these!


5: Pixley- Corsega Laser-Cut Detail Blouse- ReturnedActually-Ashley-Stitch-Fix-Pixley-Corsega-Blouse

Actually-Ashley-Pixley-Corsega-BlouseThis top had some great details in the laser-cuts! It really is a beautiful blouse, but the color was a tad too bright for me. I wasn’t sure how often I would pick this out of my closet. I decided to return this one even though it was cute! I used my Kut From The Kloth Denna Skinny Jeans from a previous Stitch Fix and white sandals from Target to complete the look.


A big thank you to Nicole B, Heather R. and Kim O. for using my referral link to sign up for Stitch Fix! I hope you guys love their personal stylist service as much as I do!

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix- As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

Good Morning!

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! After filing out our wedding invitations, I drove back home to see my family. My Aunt hosted a wonderful Easter lunch and we did an adult egg hunt! We do not have really any little ones left, as our youngest is a senior in high school.. so we have morphed the egg hunt tradition to adults. We fill the eggs with scratch offs, burt’s bees goodies, mini alcohol bottles, dollars, one use face masks, candy and other fun treats then the host hides them. All of the adults have a blast looking for the eggs and getting some fun goodies too!

But anyway, I am back with another Stitch Fix! You all know I love these things and can wait for the next one. I have requested some of their new shoes in my next shipment! I can’t wait to see what they send 🙂


1: Pixley Millie Textured Dress- Kept

PIXLEY-MILLIE-TEXTURED-DRESSThis was a instant keeper. I love the small honeycomb pattern in navy and white. It gives the dress a slightly nautical vibe! I also really like the mesh detail around the neckline. This jacket would be so adorable with a jean jacket and nude flats! I paired it with a red bubble necklace (similar) and red pointed toe flats (similar).


2: Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse- KeptPAPERMOON-BASTILLE-TULIP-BLOUSE

This is such a great top for spring! It has an adorable sleeve detail that looks like a tulip, and the fabric is so light and airy. I was surprised at how flattering the color is on too! I paired it with dark jeans, the bracelets sent in this stitch fix shipment and a light blue statement necklace (similar).


3: 31 Bits Isla Medley Bracelet Set- Returned31BITS-ISLA-BRACELET-SET
I actually did like these little bracelets, but at a price tag of $38.00 for wooden bead bracelets…. I had to send them back. I felt like I could make these or find these for a way better price. I did love the bright colors though!


4: 41Hawthorn Rufus Crew Neck Blouse- Returned41HAWTHORN-RUFUS-CREW-NECK-BLOUSE

I kind of sort of regret returning this top… but not really. It looks so cute in the photos, but it was a weird scratchy material and it had a strange fit. It was rather large in the middle, but so tight around my hips. I did love the print and the black and white is right up my alley. I paired this top with a bold black and white statement necklace, jeans and black scallop flats from DSW.


5: Renee C Lyzbeth Crew Neck Top-ReturnedRENEE-C-LYZBETH-CREW-NECK-TOPThis was the first Stitch Fix item that I thought “Wow, I really don’t like that at all” even before I tried it on. Its a tad too boho for my own taste, I didn’t like the sleeveless tank style, and I really don’t like the way yellow looks on me. Even if I didn’t like the top, I paired it with a green army jacket and gold hoop earrings.


Well- thats my fix! I have to say this wasn’t my favorite of all fixes but I came out with a super amazing top and dress! If you want to check out Stitch Fix for yourself, click the link!

1: Kut From The Kloth Denna Skinny Jeans- KeptKUT-FROM-THE-KLOTH-DENNA-JEAN-ACTUALLY-ASHLEYHow did the stylist know that my old white jeans were looking.. tired. I had just donated the old pair about two weeks before this shipment! How perfect. I paired them with a paid top like this and this pearl necklace (on sale now!).


2: Papermoon Holleen Keyhole Blouse- KeptPAPERMOON-HOLLEEN-BLOUSE-ACTUALLY-ASHLEYI love the loose flowing material and bright spring colors in this top! I paired it with dark jeans and a navy blazer like this one. After these photos were taken, I wish I would have worn a dark colored tank top under it, and not the white! Oops!


3: Skies Are Blue Asa Blazer- KeptSKIES-ARE-BLUE-ASA-BLAZER-ACTUALLY-ASHLEYThis blazer reminds me of being on a yacht. I am never on a yacht, but I still like it. I paired it with a textured white top and jeans.


4: Lovapella Kallin Contrast Knit Top- KeptLOVEAPPELLA-KALLIN-CONTRAST-KNIT-TOP-ACTUALLY-ASHLEYThis one is perfect. It is a soft cotton material, and has a cute trim detail on the bottom. This would be so cute tucked into a skirt for spring!


5: Skies Are Blue Pillsbury Shoulder Detail Tunic- KeptSKIES-ARE-BLUE-PILLSBURY-TUNIC-ACTUALLY-ASHLEYThis one was a tough one. I love the shape, color and should detail but the material.. meh. It is scratch and wrinkles so easily. I’m going to keep it and see how it goes!

StitchFix Review Cover-Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley BlogsWelcome Back!

Have said it before, and I’ll say it again.. I love getting a Stitch Fix Shipment in the mail. I swear I must look like I am a five year old on Christmas morning when I pull up to the house and see that pretty box on the steps… Its the little things, right? If you’re new to the blog, welcome! I am always so excited to hear from new faces and get to know everyone! I’ve written about my Stitch Fix shipments before. You can catch up with the action here, here, here and here.

1: Absolutely Elberta Pointelle Detail Cowl Neck Sweater- Returned

Absolutely Elberta Pointelle Detail Cowl Neck-Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley BlogsAbsolutlely Elberta Pointelle Detail Cowl Neck Sweater- Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley BlogsThis was a cute white sweater that I paired with a gold and black drop gem necklace and skinny jeans. It is a perfect look for the holidays if paired with bright colored skinny jeans! To be honest, I am not a huge fan of cowl necks. Some people can really pull them off, but I feel like I am constantly adjusting them. I was also not a huge fan of the fit, it was a tad too snug so I had to return it.


2: Liverpool Anita Skinny Pants- Returned

Liverpool Anita Skinny Pant-Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley Blogs

These army green pants were so fun, but simply did not fit too well. I had bunching and pulling of the fabric in my *front* area. It they were a better fit I would have totally kept them! I paired the pants with sexy “biker” black heels, a black shirt and a vest like this one. 


3. Gorjana Teresa Mini Bar Studs- KeptGorjana Teresa Mini Bar Studs-Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley Blogs

I have been really into gold lately. From using it in my interior design work, to wearing it non stop.. I’ve been REALLY into gold. Needless to say these simple gold studs will fit perfectly in with my new favorite trend 😉


4: 41 Hawthorn Folbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse- Returned41Hawthorn Filbert 34 Sleeve popover blouse-Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley Blogs41hawthorn filbert popover blouse back-Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley Blogs

This was a hard one for me. On one hand the fit was great and t had this fun detail on the back of the sleeve! Love that! On the other hand, look at how easily wrinkled it became. Lord knows I don’t have time to iron before work so I knew I’d never be able to wear it… Back it went. I paired it with dark skinny jeans and fun camel colored boots.


5. Skies Are Blue Emira Faux Fur Collar Knit Vest- KeptSkies are Blue Emira Faux Fur Knit Vest-Stich Fix review on Actually Ashley BlogsOkay, this was hands down my favorite item of the bunch! It fit like a glove, and was right on trend with the faux fur that is everywhere right now. I went with dark jeans, my previous Stitch Fix necklace, my Blowfish Booties and a White Sweater I had on hand. This would also be so cute with a jewel toned long sleeved dress and pumps for a office holiday party!


Thanks so much for checking in! I hope you stop by again 🙂  If your’e interested, check out Stitch Fix and give it a try! I’ve loved it so far!

Until next Time,

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited that the Holiday season is in full swing! We are working on getting out all of our decorations and setting up the tree! I am also so excited to have gotten another Stitch Fix shipment from my stylist! I always get so excited to open them to see what fun goodies are hiding inside. Stitch Fix is an amazing “personal stylist” service that sends you five items when you request it! You only pay for what you keep, if you don’t like anything you simply pay a $25.00 styling fee. If you keep all five items they give you an extra 25%!  Here is what I got:


1: Pixley Klamath Mixed Material Top- KeptTeal and Navy Mixed Material Top

I loved the bright colors and pattern of this tank top. I never really pick put these types of colors for myself so it is nice to have a little “push” from my stylist! I paired this top with a teal cardigan (similar) I already owned, black pumps (similar) and simple skinny jeans.

2: Fun2Fun Ritten Henley Top- KeptRed and White Ritten Henley Top

This is again, a pattern I wouldn’t normally pick while out shopping for myself. The fit is okay, but I wish it was a tad bit longer in my torso. Either way it was cute and different so I decided to keep it. I paired with with dark skinny jeans and some tan boots (similar or similar).

3. Kensie Rebekah Blazer- Keptkensie navy blazer

This is the most versatile item I got in this shipment! It is a simple navy blazer that is pretty structured. It is perfect to dress up or down at work. The sleeves show off a white and navy polkadot print when you cuff them! I paired it with these jeans and tan flats, this stripped top and floral printed scarf.

4. Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan- Keptred open cardigan This is such a fun cardigan! The sides gather to create a faux pocket. It is perfect to hide cold hands on a crisp fall day! I paired this cardigan with a white blouse (similar), plaid scarf and these boots (similar or similar). Perfect holiday outfit if you ask me!

2 and 4 together

Here I paired the Fun2Fun Ritten Henley top and the Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan! They look very cute together!

5: Moni Abstract Chevron Stud Detail Blouse- Kept
stud detail blouseThis was my favorite item in this shipment! The fit was dead on (x-small). I love the stud details both around the chest and sleeves. I love the dark chevron pattern. It almost comes off as a herringbone! Love, love love! I paired it with black riding boots and dark jeans. 


Thats my last fix! As always, I can not wait for the next one! If you don’t know about Stitch Fix yet, you can go back and read about my first few reviews here, here and here!

Until Next Time,
