I received my second maternity Stitch Fix this weekend, and it’s full of comfortable classics! See what they sent!
After such a successful first experience with Stitch Fix, I was excited to give it a try again quickly to try to get a few pieces I would need for my Fall maternity wardrobe! But, I’m still deciding what I’m going to keep and send back, so I would love to hear what you think too!
I have a little over nine weeks left in my pregnancy, so I really was interested in pieces that would work both now and into my postpartum time. Staple pieces like comfortable leggings, cozy cardigans, and basic pullovers will be items I reach for over and over again once the cooler weather arrives.
I mentioned in my last post that I am learning to invest when I can in quality clothing when it makes sense to. Clothes that fit and flatter well, that I don’t have to take four kids out to shop for, and that will last through a lot of wearing are worth paying a little more for.
One thing that I’ve noticed about the clothes I purchased from my first Stitch Fix box is that every time I wear them, people comment on how much they like them. It is nice to put on clothes that you love and that look good on you too.
What Stitch Fix Sent ::
I specifically asked this time for leggings and a “perfect gray cardigan”. Both of these items were either missing from my wardrobe (like the cardigan) or needed to be replaced because they were getting threadbare (like the leggings).
In addition to these two items, the stylist surprised me with a pair of shoes, and a couple of other comfy maternity pieces. Now I have two more days to decide what to do!
Toms :: Mesh Knit Alpargata Slip-On Flat
Confession: I have wanted red shoes for over a decade and just have never bought a pair. This was a really fun surprise to find in the box! I bought my first pair of TOMS last year and wore them constantly. I was just thinking it was time to get another pair.
They fit, so I am pretty certain I will be keeping them.
Rune :: Porter Maternity Legging
I asked for these leggings and since they fit, I will be keeping them as well. They are super comfortable, and I look forward to many, many cozy days at home in front of the fire in these leggings and a comfy top…with a newborn!
Madigan :: Wendolyn Pullover Maternity Knit Top
A couple of days ago, I got chilly and realized that I had nothing to put on that would be warm and lounge-worthy other than my husband’s long-sleeve t-shirt. Comfortable, yes. Flattering, not so much. I would definitely like to have at least one or two pullover type pieces that will fit over my belly, and at the same time, not make me feel like I’m sloppy and hanging out in my pajamas.
For that reason, I am leaning towards getting this top, but am still a little undecided. I like that I will be able to wear it after the baby is born, but am not 100% on the color. My husband is a fan, though, so that’s good. (What do you think?)
Honey Punch :: Shaunah Hooded Cocoon Cardigan
I LOVE cardigans and I wear them all year long. They are my favorite for layering in the cooler months (it doesn’t get that cold here), and they are great for nursing too. This cardigan is soooo soft, it’s a really versatile color, and I love that it has pockets. It’s another piece I can see myself wearing almost daily over the next few months.
My only hang-up is the hood and the length. What do you think? Are you a fan of hooded cardigans? I don’t feel like this one is too bulky, it’s just not in my norm, necessarily.
Skies Are Blue :: Nevara Maternity Cotton Shirt Dress
This is the second dress Stitch Fix has sent that hasn’t really worked for me. The length is just a little awkward. Not long enough to wear by itself, and a little too long to be a tunic-type shirt. I won’t be keeping this one, but I’m trying to see if I can pass it along to someone else before I send it back.
The Verdict… ???
Time to weigh in! What do you think? I need to decide what I will keep and what I will send back. (They give you three days to try things on and make a decision). There is always an incentive to keep everything to get a 25% discount off of all the items in your box. My fingers are crossed that someone will want the dress!
