June Stitch Fix: Summer Styles

Stitch Fix delivery days are my favorites!  Even if I’m in a bad mood, that beautiful box brightens my day.  My June Stitch Fix delivery was no different.  When I pulled into the driveway and spotted the Stitch Fix box, I couldn’t wait to find out what summer styles my personal stylist chose for me.

Want clothes picked out for you by a personal stylist and delivered directly to your door? Try Stitch Fix! Check out what summer styles I received in my June Stitch Fix.

 

If you look in my closet, you’ll see lots of dressy clothes.  Three quarters of the year I’m in the classroom teaching.  I need lots of skirts, dresses, and blouses.  Then, summer arrives, and I have nothing to wear.  My summer wardrobe hasn’t been updated in about 3 years.

I went into my Stitch Fix profile online and asked my stylist to send me some casual summer looks.  I need some new shorts and light tops to get me through the next 2 months.

If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s a styling service.  Here’s how to get started.

  1. Go to the Stitch Fix website, and create an account.
  2. Fill out your style profile telling what types of clothes you love, your sizes, and how much you want to spend.
  3. Decide how often you would like to receive a fix, and schedule your first one.
  4. Wait anxiously to see what 5 items your personal stylist chose for you.

When your fix arrives, try everything on in the comfort of your own home.  This is my favorite part of Stitch Fix.  I hate dressing rooms.  Plus, I usually have a three-year old hanging on my leg while I’m trying on pants.  With Stitch Fix, I can wait until the kids are in bed and try my clothes on in peace.  Here’s what to do after you’ve tried on all your clothes.

  1. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back.  You have three days to return any items you don’t want.
  2. Put your returns in the provided postage-paid bag.
  3. Take the bag to the post office.
  4. Go to the Stitch Fix website and check out.  You’ll be able to leave feedback on all of the items so your stylist will know what worked and what didn’t.  This will help your next fix be even more tailored to your style.
  5. There is a $20 styling fee, but it gets applied to the price of anything you keep.
  6. If you decide to keep everything in your fix, you get 25% off.  Check out how I took advantage of this in my February fix.

Now that you know how to get started with Stitch Fix, let’s check out the summer styles I received in my June Stitch Fix.

June Stitch Fix

Brendie Lace Hem Knit Top by Skies Are Blue

The Brendie Lace Hem Knit Top is one of the summer styles I received in my June Stitch Fix.

 

This top was the first thing I pulled from the box.  I liked the red and white striped pattern, and I was intrigued by the lace along the bottom.  It looked like a great top for summer.  When I tried it on, I realized I didn’t love the feel of this shirt.  The lace was scratchy, and the rest of the fabric wasn’t very soft.  I decided to sent it back.

Cost:  $54.00

 

Rutland Swing Knit Top by Papermoon with the

Chester Cargo Short by Pistola

The Rutland Swing Knit Top and the Chester Cargo Short were two of the summer styles in my June Stitch Fix.

 

I actually tried the shorts on first.  They fit perfectly, and they were so comfortable!  I fell in love right away.  Then, of course, I had to go to my closet to find some tops that would go with the shorts.  I had a few white shirts that could work, but nothing I own had that olive color.  I was feeling a little disappointed.

Then, I went back to my Stitch Fix box.  When I pulled out the Rutland Swing Knit Top, I realized the flower pattern on the pocket had some olive running through it.  When I read the note from my stylist, Janina, I realized that she had done that on purpose.  I loved the way they looked together.  I decided to keep both the top and shorts.  This will be the perfect new outfit for summer!

Cost:  Shirt – $38.00        Shorts – $68.00

 

Hadlee Knit Dress by Loveappella

The Hadlee Knit Dress is one of the summer styles in my June Stitch Fix.

 

The Hadlee Knit Dress was the next item in my fix.  This looked exactly like something I would wear to school.  In fact, I have about 3 other dresses in this same style.  I tried it on even though I wasn’t planning on keeping it.  The fit was a bit tighter than I like.  I decided to send it back.

Cost:  $64.00

 

Athena Raffia Tote by Danielle Nicole

The Athena Raffia Tote is one of the summer styles I received in my June Stitch Fix.

 

The last item in my fix was the Athena Raffia Tote.  I liked the stripes on this bag, and it would match a lot.  Plus, it provides a lot of space to store everything I need to carry with me for the kids.  However, I have a ton of bags, and Tony would not be happy if I bought another one.  Therefore, the bag had to go back.  At first, I was worried it wouldn’t fit in the return bag, but after folding it in half, it slid right in.

Cost:  $38.00

 

Stitch Fix Reflections

I absolutely love the outfit I kept.  I’m going to have to look for more tops to match those shorts.  I want to wear them all the time!  The other items in my fix definitely fit my style.  I just own similar items, and the fit was a little bit off with the shirt and dress.  Janina did a great job choosing items for me.  I can’t wait to get my next fix!  I’ll be asking for some back to school clothes, since my next fix will come in August.
