Well hey, StitchFix, it’s been a while! But with baby on board these past few months, I’ve been waiting until now to update my maternity wardrobe.
I kept all the items from my last fix (read about it here), so I tried to be just as specific this time around with my requests – namely, a pair of fun jeans and a dainty-yet-unique necklace, plus a few tops and sweaters to use as the bump grows.

Now let’s take a peek at what showed up in this month’s box…
First up was the Just Black Maternity Andrea Released Hem Skinny Jean ($88).
At this point (17 weeks along) forgiving waistbands are essential, so these immediately caught my eye.
I’ve got a few pairs of standard blue and black denim from last round, but this time I’m all about color – especially as we enter the dreary Portland winter months.
Next was the Romolo Munroe Feather Pendant Necklace ($28).
Pretty basic, yes. But I like the beaded detail on the chain, it’s a perfect length and it’ll add some interest to outfits without overwhelming them.
Plus, I’m not a fan of A) much or B) big jewelry, so this will be a great staple for accessorizing.
Third was the Skies are Blue Olivina Hooded Slub Knit Cardigan ($58).
It’s got a classic color and shape, plus the open design is good for all stages of pregnancy and beyond.
The sleeve detail on the bottom threw me a bit, though – it’s a spandex-type material that goes maybe a quarter of the way up your arm – but maybe it’s good for keeping sleeves pushed up?
After that was the Kensie Lona Zipper Sleeve Pullover ($68).
To be honest, this was the only piece that didn’t thrill me straight out of the package, but I withheld judgment because you never know until you try it on.
The color is mix of gray, taupe and green, which is kind of ‘meh,’ though, plus the shape is a little boxy for my taste…but we’ll see.
And last but not least was the Loveappella Maternity Jillyen Roll Cuff Knit Top ($48).
As soon as I pulled this top out of the box, I knew it was my style – casual and sporty.
The material looked a tad see-through, however, so I definitely wanted to see how it looked on before deciding.
So what did I end up keeping?
Here’s my reasoning: The jeans and short-sleeved top were no-brainers. I don’t currently have anything like the hooded sweater (which is great for fall layering!) or the necklace.
And the sweater I was so-so about? Factor in the 25 percent discount if you purchase all five items, and it made sense to keep the whole box.
Well played, StitchFix, well played!
