When I found out that Stitch Fix was offering maternity fixes, I couldn't wait to sign up for one. I scheduled it for the beginning of my second trimester, and requested items that would transition well throughout the rest of my pregnancy, as well as life after baby comes.
I decided to try a new stylist this time, and Blake knocked it out of the park! As soon as I opened the box, I immediately thought I'd be keeping everything. It was all exactly my style, and I couldn't wait to try it all on!
Eight Sixty Ariel V-Neck Maternity Blouse ($68) - RETURNED
This blouse is exactly my style! I love the abstract polka dot pattern, and the cut of the blouse is super flattering. I loved it just as much when I tried it on, and I was planning on keeping it for sure. And then, I tried to take it off. The fabric doesn't stretch at all, and the shoulders are just tight enough that it was almost impossible to get off. I ended up getting it off (thank goodness! haha) but I decided not to keep it. If it was that hard to get off now, it would be nearly impossible at the end of my pregnancy. I am SO SAD about sending this shirt back, especially after I got so many compliments on it from my bumpdate pic this week, but I just couldn't justify keeping a shirt that I couldn't get off. :)
Kensie Rebekah Contrast Detail Blazer ($88) - RETURNED
I have an affection for blazers, but have a lot of trouble finding ones that work well with my body shape. I loved the cut of this one, and the polka dot fabric on the sleeves is so cute. I didn't love the fact that it was navy, because there's not as many work options for me to wear it with, but it was so cute that I assumed I'd be keeping it. I tried it on, and loved everything about it, but the shoulders were tight. I was super sad, but I wasn't going to pay almost $90 for a blazer that was too tight in the shoulders. I am definitely on the hunt for a blazer like this - I LOVE IT!
41Hawthorn Berneen Dolman Knit Top ($58) - RETURNED
I have this shirt in another pattern, and love it as a maternity shirt as well. I liked the pattern and color of this one, and again - I thought this was going to be a new addition to my closet. If I had wanted to keep everything else, I would have happily kept this shirt and it would make a great addition to my closet. But I didn't like the pattern enough to justify buying it without the 5 item discount.
Kut From The Kloth Denna Maternity Skinny Jean ($78) - RETURNED
(these are pictured above, but not well. Sorry!)
I wasn't super excited to see jeans in the fix because I have several pairs already, but these were super soft and a cute color. A great pair of maternity jeans is a necessity during pregnancy, so I figured if I was keeping everything else, I wouldn't be bummed about keeping these. They fit amazing, and are super comfortable, but I just don't need another pair of maternity jeans, so I decided not to keep them.
Urban Expressions Rex Hardware Detail Crossbody Hobo Bag (68) - KEEP
Now for the good news! I have been looking EVERYWHERE for the perfect crossbody bag, and this one is it! I love the soft gray color, and I love the style. I love every single thing about it! It's big, it's beautiful and it's officially mine. :)
Overall, I was thrilled with this fix. I should have requested no maternity jeans, but other than that, it was all perfect for my style. If only they had fit a little better - my maternity closet could have added some great pieces!
If you're expecting, I definitely recommend doing a maternity fix. Finding stylish maternity clothes aren't the easiest thing to find, and Stitch Fix sent me some great options! And if you're not pregnant, I still recommend Stitch Fix. Some of my favorite items in my closet are from past fixes, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon!
