After ending up with another pair of jeans from StitchFix no. 10 (read about it here), I had high hopes for my next shipment to include some more unique pieces for the upcoming season.
Shape-wise, I may not be back to my pre-baby fighting weight (breastfeeding isn’t always the miracle celebs claim it to be, just FYI), but I’m not too worried about it at this point; however, I am ready to get out of my mom-sweats and into some cute clothing for fall.
I didn’t give my stylist too much specific direction other than A) please don’t send any more polyester tops or jeans, and B) please do send some stuff that’s trendy yet mom-friendly — aka able to be washed when I inevitably get puked, pooped, peed or drooled upon.

Let’s take a peek at what came in this month’s box, shall we?
First up was the Kut from the Kloth Simmons Bootcut Jean ($88). Wait – WHAT?! Another pair of jeans?! This did not bode well. I started wondering if my stylist even read my requests…
Nevertheless, it’s hard to resist denim because it’s such a wardrobe staple, at least for me. And I did like the wash and fit of this pair, so they weren’t automatically ruled out.
Next was the Market & Spruce Carlee Knit Jumpsuit ($78) and the Bancroft Dante Cut Out Metal Oval Layered Necklace ($32). Now we’re talkin’!
I love a good jumpsuit, but I’ve always just admired them on other women; usually they’re not as flattering on an athletic build. But this one is a soft jersey knit (read: feels like you’re wearing pajamas), which I knew would be tough to resist if it ended up actually fitting.
As for the necklace, I’m more of a dainty jewelry fan instead of large statement necklaces, which tend to overwhelm me. But I really liked how this worked with the jumpsuit. My stylist was slowly redeeming herself…
After that was the Market & Spruce Benni Crossfront Knit Top ($48). My stylist included it because she said it’s a mom-friendly (aka easy-access, haha) top with a punch of color.
Again, I love cross-front tops…but they typically they don’t hang well on me. This one, however, fit like a glove and the color is awesome. It just might be a keeper!
And last but not least was the Kut from the Cloth Benter Mixed Material Top ($58). Another easy-care top to throw on with jeans so I could feel somewhat pulled together when stepping out.
Totally my style + fun prints + super comfy materials = a win. Unless the fit was way off, this shirt and I were destined to be together.
So what did I end up keeping?
Shocker — the whole box!
Although I wasn’t completely sold on the jeans and the necklace this round, I figured they’d be good basics to add into a fall wardrobe rotation. Plus there’s a 25% discount when you buy all five items, which worked out to a savings of $76.
I mean, that’s like getting one thing free, right? At least according to my shopping justification math…
The best part is that I’ve already worn three of the items: the jumpsuit and necklace out to anniversary dinner with Ben, and the cross-front top while wine tasting that same weekend. And as soon as the weather gets cooler, you can bet I’ll be busting out the floral top and jeans.
My next fix is scheduled for around the holidays and my well of wardrobe creativity is running dry at the moment, so I was hoping to pick your brains for inspiration. What should I request? Leave a comment below, and I’ll put your ideas in the next note to my stylist!
