I'm going on a cruise in a few days and was so hoping for some tops I could bring with me. Luckily, my Stitch Fix stylist, Michelle had me covered!
I've been blogging about my Stitch Fix boxes for the past four months now, and I am always so excited for it to arrive. If you haven't read my other posts and don't know what this is, Stitch Fix which is a personal styling service. They have an online portal where you tell them your style, size, and budget, and one of their stylists puts together a box of 5 items that are specially picked for you! They charge you a $20 styling fee which is refunded to you in the form of a product discount if you make a purchase. You can also get a 25% discount if you buy all 5 items. If you happen to dislike anything, or the fit is wrong, send it back within 3 days in a free prepaid envelope and you will not be charged for it.
You'll see the box that all my clothes arrived in. I actually saw FedEx right out from my bedroom window, grabbed my camera, and snapped a picture of it right by the front door. I couldn't wait!
Opening the box is always so much fun! I love seeing my style cards with ideas of how to wear the items. I also enjoy reading the letter from my stylist.
Some of the colors I received in the past were a bit dull. I requested some fun patterns and colors for this month, and Michelle definitely delivered!
DARYN SOLID JERSEY KNIT TOP
I love the simplicity of this top, and especially the bright color. I really like how it is more fitted on the top and is loose fitting throughout my hips. The scoop neck in the back offers a bit of a surprise. I was actually thinking the shoulders would slip off, but I think that because this has one of those built in bras, it actually stays in place quite nicely. I paired it with a longer necklace to jazz it up a bit.
TRISTAN FLORAL PRINT BUTTON FRONT BLOUSE
Floral patterns are kind of my thing. These colors are beautiful and the fit of the top is pretty flattering on me. This is a definite keeper and going with me on my cruise!
BRIGHTON ABSTRACT PRINT OPEN-BACK TANK
Ok, I'm not going to lie. I probably spent a good 10 minutes trying to figure out how to get this bad boy on. The back draping is a bit tricky to get right. Once I finally got it correct, I loved how unique it was. From the front it looks like a typical tank, but the back definitely offers a surprise. I feel like I'll have to wear my hair up to show it off! I'm also pretty lucky that I had a racerback bra, because it is 100% needed.
POLLY MINI CHEVRON PRINT TIE-WAIST TUNIC
I'm not going to lie. I tried this on with the tie around the waist. I put it on with the bow in the front and back. Hated it because it falls on a bad place on my hips. I was really hoping to like it because the pattern and color is so cute. My mom actually suggested just taking the belt off and wearing it with leggings and a longer necklace. I think it made all the difference. It's so comfortable and something I can just throw on while still looking put together.
BRYAN SHORT-SLEEVE OPEN-FRONT CARDIGAN
I am a bit obsessed with cardigans, so I'm happy to receive one in a color I don't have. It actually matches a chevron print blouse I have perfectly, and I don't wear the blouse too often because it's kind of too poofy....that's the best I can describe it. This cardigan hides the poofiness and makes me like that shirt so much better.
