Mom’s Day Out with Stitch Fix

Mom’s Day Out with Stitch Fix

Hey friends!  Sorry for the late post today.  Things have been so busy around here these last few days.  I have a pretty exciting announcement to make, so I’ll be sharing that with you soon.  Also, don’t forget that it’s already August (whhhaaaat!?) and you can join my Instagram challenge #FindYourFlexibility!  The posts have been coming in and they are so great.  The winner gets a piece of Momentum Jewelry, which is this amazing jewelry brand that has motivational sayings to help push you through your workout.  Check out my custom bracelet.  Love it!

So, on to today’s topic…clothes.  When I was working full-time I would typically wear a dress, a skirt or slacks and nice blouse all day and when I got home I would immediately change into workout gear because, let’s face it, it is the most comfortable and amazing thing to wear all the time.  Weekends I would usually go out to dinner or someplace fun that would require a few cute casual or date night outfits.  

These days I’m home all day with the little guy and I’m teaching classes so my options are yoga pants or capris.  Sometimes I will find myself living in workout gear all day long.  And while nothing beats a comfy pair of (opaque) Lulu Wunder Unders, I found myself feeling a bit blah from not having that routine of dressing up and going somewhere everyday.

So I decided to change that.  I ordered up a Stitch Fix (affiliate link) for myself and told my stylist that I wanted to look comfy and casual but also awesome.  No small task.  But my stylist, the same one from my last fix, did a great job!  I started feeling a little more Princess Kate instead of Jillian Michaels (don’t get me wrong, I would be her any day but I wanted to move away from workout clothes).

First up was this super cool asymmetrical tank.  I loved the black and white stripe pattern and the floral detailing on the sides and back (not pictured).  When I first saw it, I didn’t think it would be my style or really fit me but I think it might be my favorite piece from this fix!

I paired it with some ankle length cuffed jeans, a long gold necklace (Target my friends!), a chunky black & white bangle and some black heels.  If I was doing something a bit more casual, I’d probably just swap out the shoes for a nice pair of sandals or flats.  I think this top has a distinct LA/Cali vibe!

Next up was this fun chambray tank top.  This one I pulled out of the box and thought “hmmm….” but then I tried it on and was taken by the comfort and the style.  It is so different from anything else I have in my closet.  This is one of the reasons I love Stitch Fix because it really forces you outside your style comfort zone and you may find something you absolutely love!

I paired it with white ankle-length jeans, some high heeled sandals and a white chunky necklace.  I think this look says “summer bbq!”

I was pretty excited to see this gorgeous Grecian style dress in my fix box!  I thought this would be the perfect date night dress.  It is also flowy and great for a hot summer day!

I paired it with a leather tote, a sparkly necklace and some wedges.

Next up was this paisley blouse.

I liked the blouse and thought it paired well with some of my jewelry but I didn’t love the blouse and the fit was a bit loose on me.  Also, Cooper kept grabbing my top and it exposed my bra so I decided to send this one back.

This lightweight, white blouse had some beautiful embroidery detail.  It totally looks like something my mom would wear (which is a compliment), but it wasn’t really me.  I decided not to keep this one either.

Overall, I would say it was a fairly successful fix and I think I’ll be set for a lunch with friends sans-children, a playdate, date night and a fun party for grownups!

Readers, what’s your daily uniform?

    I keep going back and forth as to weather I should sign-up for Stitch Fix!! I feel like it would just be one more thing I have to do BUT, I don’t really shop for clothes or make time to so…
    I love the outfits you kept and I totally agree with those you didn’t. Hmmmm. Maybe come September it will be time to sign up!!
    Can’t wait for your announcement….so exciting 🙂

    My go-to during the summer is lightweight, kind of casual, kind dressy sun dresses. I work full time so I want to be dressed up, but ready for anything after work.

    That striped tank top is super cute and looks really comfortable!! Gosh now that I’m teaching fitness classes and staying at home with Charlotte, I’m typically wearing yoga pants as my uniform. Haha. Luckily there is a ton of cute workout gear out now!
