My previous StitchFix (read about it here) netted me five new pieces for my summer wardrobe. With colorful staples — a dress, a top and three blouses — that were both comfortable and flattering (not to mention a 25 percent discount for ordering everything in the box), it was pretty much a no-brainer.
So no pressure for my seventh installment, right?! Not only did I request some transitional pieces for late summer and early fall, but I also asked my stylist to add some color because I always love seeing what they end up choosing based on my Pinterest page.

Let’s take a peek at what came in this month’s box, shall we?
First up was the Papermoon Garland Geo Print Maxi Skirt ($58). I’m a huge fan of maxi skirts; I just got one from Forever21 that I absolutely love and have been wearing non-stop, so I was excited to see this in my fix.
Although this version didn’t have a fold-over waist (which I prefer, especially now that I’ve got a growing belly to take into account), I like that it’s a print that’s different from anything else in my closet. Plus, Liz (my stylist) mentioned that it would be able to transition easily from summer to fall with a few accessory changes, which made it even more appealing.
Next was the RD Style Angus Split Back Mixed Material Sweater ($68). I’ve got a few black sweaters already, but this one piqued my interest because of the unique details on the back.
It’s tough to see in the picture (which is the back of the sweater), but there’s a keyhole opening up top, three button details in the middle and a sheer panel along the bottom. The elbows also have cute patches, plus the bottom has a flattering asymmetrical hem.
Third was the Pixley Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt ($54). Quite frankly, it was love at first sight — and touch — with this shirt.
I like that it’s a fun twist on the traditional chevron print, but I love that it’s just so dang comfortable. Seriously, the material is like worn-in PJ’s, yet the style is perfect for going casual with jeans or dressing up with leggings or a skirt.
I’ll gladly trade in my work-from-home sweats for something like this, so it’s definitely a keeper!
After that was the Market & Spruce Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top ($58). As I mentioned in my last fix, the word “dolman” used to make me shudder, but now this style’s actually growing on me.
Not only is this sweater a new color and print for my closet, but it’s also loose, stretchy, breathable and airy (read: belly-friendly), which is perfect — both for the transition of seasons and the transition of my body. I’d wear it solo on warmer days and layer it under a scarf or blazer for when it gets cooler.
And, finally, came the Pixley Linden Sheer Detail Sleeveless Top ($54). The sheer panel up top won me over for looks, but I knew this would be one of those pieces I’d have to try on to see if I really liked.
Liz suggested pairing it with the maxi skirt, which you can see in the image below. But black’s so versatile, I could wear it with a number of skirts and pants already in my closet, which is always the mark of a good wardrobe staple.
So what did I end up keeping?
The Henley and the Dolman sweater were the winners for this round. Because my Forever21 maxi was only $13, I was having a really tough time justifying the $60 price tag on this one (yikes!), and although I liked both the sheer top and back-detailed sweater, I didn’t love ’em enough to shell out another $125.
My next fix is scheduled for mid-October, and I requested some belly-friendly maternity clothing since I’ll be about halfway through my pregnancy by then. Can’t wait to see what comes next, as I’ll take all the help I can get when it comes to figuring out how to dress a bump in non-workout attire!
