Stitch Fix #5

I was happy – and surprised – to find my fifth Stitch Fix waiting on my doorstep late last week.

And, wow! This was the best one yet.

I left brief notes in my profile that I was really digging blue lately, and my stylist Kelly hit it out of the park.

I could tell I was going to be reallllly happy as soon as I opened the box. Blue!

First up was this Gilli swing skirt in a beautiful sky color. The fabric is thin, but I think it could be dressed up with a blazer for work. More likely it will be a fun, casual summer piece. Kelly recommended putting it with a gray moto jacket from one of my earlier Fixes, which is a great idea.

(I’m back to having my kids help out with demo-ing these pieces. Not successful, see below).

The second item was this Collective Concepts sleeveless print blouse.

Here’s a close up of the print:

I already wore this to work! Totally me.

Another perfect work top was this Brixon Ivy lace blouse.

Amazing photography, huh?

What my horrible picture does not capture is the pretty lace details:

I have some public speaking events related to work that are coming up, and this bright top will be perfect under a suit.

Next up: a Mavi chambray shirt with embroidered pockets.

(MGM, 7, would NOT stand still. A millisecond after I snapped this, he twirled the shirt above his head and threw it down the stairs).

I actually wanted a new chambray shirt, so this was a welcome addition.

Ok, I saved the best for last. The final piece was my favorite, a Tart French terry striped blazer. (Similar here).

I already wore this to work, too, with lots of compliments.

I styled it with a light blue sweater, an indigo shibori scarf, slim gray pants and these gray suede ankle boots:

Here is the part where I try to show the look and mostly fail.

This was such a great Fix! These pieces will incorporate well with what I already have and also gave me a few fresh things for spring.
