During spring break we had a fabulous week in Orlando with our family. It was wonderful. What was not so wonderful was the 12 hour painfully slow drive home. However, the misery of sitting in a car for so long with a toddler and baby was soon forgotten when we pulled into the drive and saw my Stitch Fix box on the porch 2 days early! To top it off, it was very nearly a 5/5.
Let’s see what was inside…
Pixley Kornelia 2fer Textured Knit Dress – $74
I LOVE this dress so much! It’s perfect for date nights and is a great balance of young and sexy (love the neckline and tight bottom) and age appropriate! I requested all dresses and skirts in this box but other than that, was fairly vague. This was one of the reasons I love Stitch Fix – a complete surprise and now a much loved inclusion in my wardrobe.
Loveappella Clarabella Lace Detail Maxi Skirt- $58
I love the lace detailing cut out. My stylist said it was very ‘chic and on-trend’. I don’t know if it’s ‘on-trend’ but it’s very me! However, it is just a little too tight and I like my maxi skirts to be a bit brighter as I tend to wear them with plain t-shirts as you can see from how I’ve styled this outfit. It was a hard decision on whether to keep this but in the end, the waist band had the final say!

Le Lis Cecilia Zipper Detail Aline Skirt – $58
I love the pale yellow of this skirt. I have tons of this color pinned on my Pinterest board so clearly my stylist looked. My stylist also recommended I pair it with a feminine blouse. I tried it with last month’s Skies are Blue Henley blouse and I wasn’t loving it. My husband said I looked like a 80s receptionist. Hmmmm. So I tried again with the Papermoon blouse from Fix#6. This looked much better. I love pale yellow and black – it’s a winning color combination in my opinion. Anyway, I decided against keeping this as didn’t love the fit/length on me. Plus it was super see-through (never good for high school teachers!).

Pixley Dexter Faux Wrap Dress – $68
I was so torn about whether to keep this dress or not! On the one hand, it’s the perfect dress for school – comfy, cute color and just the right length. On the other hand, I just thought it was a little boring and I didn’t love it. I went back and forth on keeping it and in the end, returned it. Hopefully I won’t regret that one!
Heels (New Look – they’re super old!)
Gilli Tahj Maxi Dress – $78
I was SO happy this dress was in my box. I requested it specifically and pinned it, but it’s always in high demand on the Stitch Fix B/S/T Facebook groups so I thought it was going to be near impossible to get. Well, I got it! The minute I tried it on, I fell in love and actually wore it out to dinner the next day! It’s flattering, beautiful quality and the colors are fab! LOVE!!!!

This was my second with my new stylist Tina and I will be requesting here from now on. It was such a great fix. While I only kept two items, all five were so close to my style and Pinterest boards, that to me, it was a success. That’s what I’m looking for in Stitch Fix and they delivered. Plus I now have two gorgeous dresses for date nights!
