I’ve been waiting to request a new Stitch Fix box until it was closer to spring…and this was about all I could wait! My box came in the mail the same day snow flurries dusted our bushes outside, but spring is coming nonetheless, so I am starting to think about my spring wardrobe.
I love winter and all its coziness, but this is about the time we start having spring teaser days and every sunny, slightly warm day just gets me more and more excited for spring. I asked my stylist to send pieces that I could wear as the weather transitions from cool to warm. I also asked to try another pair of jeans because I have been wearing my distressed Stitch Fix jeans two to three times a week for months and they’ve definitely proven to be a win.
My stylist also knows that I like fitted pants and tops that are not tight on my stomach. If you sign up to try Stitch Fix, be sure to be as specific as you can about your fit, color preferences, and what kinds of pieces you would like to see. I have had great success with Stitch Fix, and I think this is in part because I have been very detailed in my feedback and in my requests.
Spring Stitch Fix Unboxing
Pink Clover :: Kalliyan V Neck Brushed Knit Top
Pink Clover :: Maples Open Kimono
Judy Blue :: Adelene Girlfriend Cuffed Distressed Jean
One thing I love about the box I received is how well the pieces work together. I am trying to stick to a more minimalistic wardrobe, and one way I’m achieving is by purchasing fewer pieces that coordinate with each other.
I wasn’t sure about this top when I saw the picture, but I like it much more in person and once I tried it on. The material is great for right now, and while I won’t want to wear it once it gets very hot, I will be able to pick it back up once the temperatures begin to cool down in the fall.
Stitch Fix has sent me a kimono in a previous box, and I LOVE it. I wear it all the time, and I’m so glad they sent me another. This kimono is blue (the one I already have is black), and I love the floral print. I’m definitely keeping it because it’ll be so versatile through spring and summer.
The jeans they sent are a “girlfriend fit”, which I had never heard of before, but I really like. I’ve never been a huge fan of how boyfriend jeans fit me because I like a more tailored/fitted look, but these jeans are a perfect fit. The distressing is more than I’ve ever purchased, but they are definitely in style right now, and I can see myself wearing them all the time this spring on playdates and errands and such.
VERDICT :: Keep all three!
Papermoon :: Contrell Flutter Sleeve Blouse
Mix By 41 Hawthorn :: Halls Brushed Knit Two Pocket Cardigan
Judy Blue :: Adelene Girlfriend Cuffed Distressed Jean
I wasn’t really expecting a cardigan, and again, when I first saw it on the picture I didn’t think I needed another gray cardigan. However, this one is more of a muted robin’s egg blue and is SOOO soft. I think it will be a great color to pair with spring tops and summer tops.
The top is a really lightweight material and I really like the large floral print. My stylist knows I am a sucker for anything mustard too. I kept a few tops like this last year and they were so nice on hot days when I wanted a flowy, airy top.
My only hesitation with the top is the length on the side, so I want to try it on again without a tank top underneath, and maybe with shorts before I make a final decision.
VERDICT :: Keep the cardigan, try on the top and either keep or try to sell.
I’d love to hear from y’all what you think of what they sent me in the comments below, or on YouTube in the comments. I am leaning towards keeping everything, but always appreciate helpful feedback! Even if I only want four items, I will probably keep all the items so I can get the discount, then just sell the other item. (More on that below).
The total for keeping all the items in the box is $166. Not too bad for a pair of jeans, cardigan, kimono, and two nice tops. Any credit I have will then be applied to the total too. Knowing that I have a Stitch Fix box coming (or knowing that I can order one) has really helped me to avoid buying excess or pieces that I don’t really love just because they’re on sale.
For me, buying fewer higher quality pieces has been a way to build a more curated wardrobe that makes it easy for me to get dressed, knowing my choices are pieces I love that fit me well.
If you’re curious about the shoes I’m wearing in the pictures, they are these Chaco sandals (love them) and these Tom’s shoes (also love).

Five Ways to Save Money with Stitch Fix
- Sign up using someone’s referral code, then share your own. This is a no-brainer and easy way to start off with saving money. Then once you have had your first box, you can share your own code with friends and you both will get more credit.
- Be very detailed and ask for specific needs. Fill out the style profile thoroughly and take the style quizzes so that your stylist will better know what you like. Then, when you request a box, think about any “holes” or needs you have in your wardrobe and let your stylist know. By building a smaller, more simpler wardrobe, you will avoid spending unnecessary money on pieces that don’t coordinate well with what you already have (and thus never leave your closet).
- Only keep what you love and will wear. This is another easy tip, but one we don’t always live by. Just because you see someone else wearing something or just because something is in trend, doesn’t mean it belongs in your closet. If you don’t LOVE it, don’t keep it. I know from experience that I’m not going to like something more simply because I’ve invested in it. More likely, I will just regret wasting money. Likewise, if it doesn’t fit NOW, don’t invest in it. Only keep pieces that you feel good in and are flattering to your body.
- Buy classic pieces that will last you many seasons and styles. I have many pieces that I have worn for years because they are timeless. This doesn’t mean you never buy a trendy item, but if you’re spending money on higher quality pieces, you want them to last more than one season. You can always add trendiness with accessories!
- Join a Facebook buy/sell/trade group so you can sell one or two pieces you don’t want, and still get the 25% discount. This tip is so helpful and it’s one I’ve taken advantage of many times! I have found that people are usually very eager to take advantage of what you’re offering, since they’re also getting the discount and already are familiar with the brands and pieces.
