Welcome to my 9th Stitch Fix post. For those of you following along but not yet partaking in this wonderful adventure called Stitch Fix, perhaps this will be the time you finally decide to try it out. If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, it is an online personal styling service that sends you 5 hand-picked clothing and/or accessory items each time you request a “Fix”. You pay a $20 styling fee, but if you end up keeping anything from the Fix, the $20 gets applied to that. It’s so easy to sign up, just go online, fill out your sizes, style preference and budget. You can also link a Pinterest board to your account so that the stylist can get a better sense for your tastes. Shipping is always free and you return anything you do not want to keep in a handy return bag they provide.

Even though it will stay warm here in the San Diego area for quite some time, I still want to feel like it is Fall and change up my wardrobe as such. For this month’s Fix, I specifically asked Kaley (my consistent stylist since April) to send me items in Fall trend colors, but to make sure they are light enough to be worn here in our warmer temps. She did exactly that!
Daniel Rainn Bellaire Crew Neck Blouse – XS ($58)
This top is the epitome of what I wanted when I asked Kaley for fall trend colors in lightweight pieces. I love the mustard and burgundy and the fun print. My chunky gold necklace from my January Fix shines against it, and the colors really pop against my Mavi dark skinny jeans.
The sleeves are slightly longer than my summer tops and while the bottom hem is longer in the back, it does not look weird this time. Even though it is still hot out, I definitely feel like Fall is in the air with this top.
Diba Winnie Western Bootie – 7 ($90)
I paired the outfit above with the brown booties that also came in this month’s Fix. Right off the bat I really liked that they had a ruggedness to them. The darker coloring at the toe and low, stacked heel made me think of riding boots, yet the bootie cut is cute and in line with current trends.
I have also been wanting booties with a lower heel, so they fit the bill!
Hailee C Morwen Button Up Top – XS ($58)
If you look in my current closet, I don’t think you’ll find a single button up shirt. It’s not that I don’t like the look, I just don’t find them as comfortable and flattering as other tops. When I saw from my Stitch Fix app that this was coming, I was actually excited, though. I like the plaid pattern in non-typical plaid colors. I also liked the rolled up sleeves. However, when I threw it on, fit was a problem. In the picture above, I’m actually pulling the shirt together behind my back so that it appears more fitted. Even though it was an XS, it was too boxy.
Looking at these pictures now makes me question whether I made the right decision to send it back, though. These pictures make it look great (or perhaps it’s just the skills of my amazing husband photographer…or the fun pose on the horse rails…or the perfect lighting…)!
Liverpool Anita Skinny Pant – 2 ($78)
When I first saw these pants in the Stitch Fix app, I thought they were going to be dark gray, but they are actually green. I would have liked the gray better. It would also be better for Stitch Fix to update the official name of these to “Legging” instead of “Skinny Pant” because they are most definitely leggings – super tight and super stretchy.
I decided to go with an edgy look for the plaid top and Liverpool leggings by pairing them with a black faux leather motorcycle jacket and black faux leather riding boots. Even with an interesting look, the pants were too tight fitting and not a color I would get a lot of use with.
41Hawthorn Kellan Tie Front Blouse – XS ($58)
Olive is another fall color trend this year, so again Kaley was going in the right direction with this sleeveless top. It is lightweight to keep me cool and has the bow and lace detailing that gives it a lot of visual interest.
I like the look, but I was already set on getting the first top, which was also $58, so this one went back in the bag for budget reasons mainly.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my foray into fall fashion this month. Many of you are heading into cooler temps (ahh, Fall is the one season I do miss from my Northern Virginia days). So I want to know, what are you yearning after this Fall? What was your favorite piece from my Fix this month?
