Stitch Fix Review – July 9, 2018

For this month’s Stitch Fix, I requested something a bit different. I actually meant to skip it, but completely forgot. Since our wedding is in 3 months, all of these things keep popping up! I’m trying to cut costs anywhere I can haha.

When I got the email saying my box was coming, I decided to ask for workout clothes. Affordable items that were pretty neutral and easy to mix and match.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a HUGE lover of neutrals. I love things that can be paired with multiple different items and styled a variety of ways. Versatile pieces are the best pieces in my opinion!

 

If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, here’s the rundown:

  1. Create a FREE style profile at StitchFix.com.

This is the fun part! It’s simple and doesn’t cost a thing. Just give them an idea of your body type and what you like to wear. Upload links for your Pinterest page to give your stylist some inspiration!

  1. When you are ready, schedule your first fix.

After you complete the profile, you can set up a time to have your fix shipped out. Your personal stylist will hand-pick out 5 items just for you based on what you said in your style profile. There’s a $20 styling fee, which is applied toward whatever you keep from your fix! There’s no monthly subscription fee, and shipping is free both ways!

  1. Try on your hand-picked clothes.

The best part! You can try on your fix clothes with what you already have in your closet and see how things work together. You have 4 business days to try them on and decide what to keep. You can even extend that if you need more time!

  1. Check out online.

You can check out on your computer, or through the handy app. You leave feedback for each item for your stylist and let her know your thoughts so the next fix can be even better. You’ll see the $20 styling fee applied to your items here. If you keep all 5, you get a 25% discount on top of that!

  1. Return what you didn’t love.

Didn’t love all of it? Place any unwanted items into the pre-addressed envelope that came with your fix, and drop it in the mail. It’s that easy (and free)!

  1. Schedule your next fix!

You can schedule you next fix any time. You’re not obligated to have one every month. You can request items for special events like a wedding or vacation, get new things every season, or get them as often as every 2-3 weeks! I personally like to receive mine every 3 weeks, just because it’s something fun to look forward to.

 

Now, let’s see what came in this month’s box!

 

Since I am on a tight budget, I told myself I could only keep one piece. But that was more difficult than I expected as I liked everything that came!!

The cross-back tank fit perfectly. Loose but fitted is my ideal style, and I loved the back detail.

The Nike capris were so comfortable and great quality, as you can imagine. I liked the little pocket they had on the leg.

I really would have kept the sports bra, but it was too small :(. I thought about exchanging it, but I thought I have so many sports bras, it’s probably better that I keep a top instead.

The knit top was SO soft and comfy. I really liked how it fit, and I tied it to add a fun detail. It was a hard decision between this and the cross back one.

And lastly, these purple pants. Y’all. They felt like BUTTER. They were so incredibly soft. I didn’t want to take them off. And I loved the cute ruching detail! But being the most expensive item in the box, they were sadly destined to go back.

In the end, I wound up keeping the cross back top as I felt like I’d wear it more often. I really like how it fit and the fun back detail made the decision for me.

If you’re interested in trying Stitch Fix, use my referral code and get your $20 style fee waived for your first box!

Have an awesome Monday!!

XO,

Dani

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
