Maybe it’s the fact that Puxatawny Phil predicts an early spring or maybe it’s the fact that my skin has suddenly taken on that familiar winter tone of paper white, but I’m dreaming big time of warmer weather, tulips, Easter dresses and spring! Until the weather and calendar decide to cooperate with my wishes, I decided to request a Spring Transition Stitch Fix because shopping makes everything better, right?!
If you’re not already familiar with how Stitch Fix works, click here to learn more about the program. In a nutshell, a stylist picks out 5 pieces based on a style profile you fill out when you sign up. You submit a brief note to include any wish list items and special requests then your stylist sends you 5 specially selected pieces just for you. If you keep all 5, you score a 25% discount.
So how did my Stitch Fix stylist do with my Spring Transition Fix?
My favorite pair of BlankNYC distressed jeans recently bit the dust… literally the back pocket fell apart after the last washing! I guess that’s a sign of money well spent. It was also the hunt for a replacement pair. I’ve owned Vigoss denim before and loved that pair of jeans so I was excited to try this pair. I love that the wash is a bit lighter for spring and the length is long enough for my 5’8″ frame which never happens.
This dress is super soft and feels like a lightweight sweatshirt. Cozy, sweatshirt fabric combined with spring floral print sounds like a “think spring” dream, right? It’s perfect for the office and can easily be layered with a cardigan, blazer or denim jacket until the weather warms up a bit.
I love the scallop detailing of these fuchsia flats for a pop of color and warmer weather vibe that makes any outfit feel brighter! I wore my fuchsia sandals literally every day last year so I’m hopefully these flats will be just as versatile this spring!
If you’ve followed me for long, you know that a black and white gingham button down has been a unicorn of sorts for me for years! It doesn’t seem like it would be that difficult to find but it seems that most of the ones I’ve tried have been too tight across the chest, too short in the arms or downright made me look like a lumberjack. I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked the way this one fit. I love that I can wear it along or layer it under a vest or blazer. It’s a light enough fabric that I think I can use it in outfits from fall to late spring without it being too hot.
I was excited about this color and pattern as soon as I pulled it out of the box. My Stitch Fix stylist challenged me to pair it with the fuchsia flats which seemed like a stretch but I have to say that I love this peek in trends for spring. Runway shows for Spring 2019 showed lots of pairings of reds and hot pink! This top is great layered under a blazer now and I can totally see wearing it without the blazer when the weather warms a bit.
THE OVERALL VERDICT
Overall, this Fix felt the most “like me” in awhile! I loved that all of the pieces can be layered now and worn alone later in the season. I also loved that my stylist picked pieces that can mixed and matched together in one fix. As usual, I’m already excited for my next fix!
