The summer section of my wardrobe is a little bare. I usually stock up on fall, winter, and spring items, since I need lots of clothes for school. In the summer, I generally wear shorts and T-shirts. I wanted to add some new styles to my summer clothing collection. Keep reading to find out how my July Stitch Fix helped me do that.
I know it appears that I can’t count since I skipped from Stitch Fix #1 to #3, but unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of Fix #2. The same thing happened with my second trunk from Trunk Club. They both arrived right at the end of the school year when it gets really busy. Plus we were leaving for Disney World a week after school ended so I was trying to pack and prepare for that as well. I did take pictures of the items I kept so I’ll share those at the end of this post.
The good news is that now that summer break is here, and my major vacation is over, I have time to take pictures and write again. My latest fix came just in time for my birthday, so I was hoping to find a few presents for myself. As I opened the tissue paper, I saw that this month’s stylist, Jackie, had chosen lots of colors and patterns that I liked.
July Stitch Fix Review
Kyndall Lace Detail Knit Top
The first item I tried on was the Kyndall Lace Detail Knit Top by Papermoon ($48). I loved the coral color and lace detail. As you can see in the second picture, the lace even continued onto the back of the shirt. It was very soft and comfortable. I tried it on several times and really considered keeping it. In the end I decided to send it back, since I liked one of the other tops more. (As you can see my son, who was supposed to be in bed decided to join me for the first photo. His little Figment from Disney World made it to the photo session, too.)
Chablis Woven Back Knit Top
Next, I tried on the Chablis Woven Back Knit Top by Loveappella ($48). I loved the floral pattern on the shoulders and down the back of this shirt. It was very light and would have been very cool for summer. When I looked in the mirror, I loved this shirt from the front. However, when I showed it to my husband, he mentioned that there was a lot of fabric in the back. I looked at it in the mirror, and he was right. It seemed to stick out really far in the back, and I couldn’t get the fabric to lay flat. I decided to return this shirt as well. (Oops, I forgot to tuck the tag in on the back shot.)
Brackley Henley Knit Tank
I really liked the pattern of the Brackley Henley Knit Tank by Market and Spruce ($54). When I put it on, it fit really well and felt very comfortable. It will be a perfect addition to my summer wardrobe, and it will be good to wear at the beginning of the school year. When I showed this shirt to my husband, he liked it so much that he offered to buy it for me for my birthday, so this one was obviously a keeper.
Lonny Knit Dress
When I pulled the Lonny Knit Dress by Gilli ($58) from the Stitch Fix box, my immediate thought was that it looked like a swimsuit cover-up. Unfortunately, trying it on didn’t change that. The dress wasn’t fitted at all, and while it would have made a cute cover-up, I didn’t want to pay $58 if I wasn’t going to wear it except to the pool. The pockets were a cute touch, though. I sent this one back.
Abbie Reversible Skirt
The last item in my fix was the Abbie Reversible Skirt by 41Hawthorn ($68) in navy. It fit perfectly, and I have several navy tops that will pair well with it. It will be a great addition to my school wardrobe. I also love the fact that it is reversible. The other side is plain navy and will go with even more tops in my closet, which is an added bonus. This skirt was definitely a keeper. (J would not go to bed!)
So overall, I felt that this was a very good fix. I love the two items I kept, and I considered keeping everything to get the 25 percent discount. However, it didn’t make sense for me to keep three items I wouldn’t wear very often.
Last, but not least, I promised to show you my keepers from the Stitch Fix and Trunk Club I didn’t get to photograph. Here they are. Please let me know what you think of the items I received in the comments below.
