Holy cow – this is Fix #24.
I never, ever peek at what’s coming, but I do checking tracking notices, and these tell me how much the package weighs.
Heavy box = shoes or possibly a coat.
This one was light: 3.6 lbs.
When it arrived, the box was small. Here’s the first look:
I’d requested outfits to wear for an upcoming trip to Florida. This is going to be just the kids and me, so casual pieces are in order.
Here’s the first item:
Looking at this in the box, I couldn’t tell that it was a dress. I thought it was going to be some weird blouse, and I’d mentally already sent it back. As I picked it up, though, I saw that it was Lilly Pulitzer, a brand I genuinely like. I hadn’t seen this pattern before, but I typically gravitate to Lilly’s traditional pinks/greens/pool blues versus blues in the cobalt or navy family.
This is a close up of the pattern:
This dress has 50+ SPF sun protection, so my stylist suggested wearing it over a swimsuit by the pool. Huh – I would not have gone there, style-wise.
I put it on and the fit was great, much better than I expected. This became a contender.
Next, two tops:
The orange one (Zetska Crochet Detail Knit Top from Q&A) is made from a synthetic, silky material that seems like it would hold up well. The fit was also spot-on. The gray tee is from Sundry, another casual brand I really like. The pom pom detail is really cute:
Both of these would pair really well with the two bottoms that came in this Fix:
These are the “Lorraine” shorts from Market and Spruce. Here’s what my stylist had to say about them:
It sounds like a fun trip you have coming up! Since you are headed on a more casual adventure with your kids, I thought that you could definitely use some shorts. This pair by Market and Spruce is a fun change of pace from wearing solid-colored denim all the time. The pattern would be wonderful with this high quality grey tee with the pom detailing. I also love the shorts with this comfy orange top for a pop of color.
Agreed. And to be honest, I was going to pack a pair of regular cuffed jean shorts from an old Fix, so branching out is probably a good idea.
The final item in my Fix was a pair of Just Black white skinny jeans with a released step hem:
Ok, this is uncanny because I was totally hoping to get this exact thing, but I didn’t request them – which makes this all the better. The waist was a bit loose on these (same for the shorts), but the fit everywhere else was good. I know these would look great with either top, and my stylist also suggested wearing them with the Lilly dress and treating it like a tunic. I like that idea a lot.
After 24 boxes, this was probably the most versatile Fix I’ve received. All of the pieces could be combined to make at least 6 different outfits (gray top + white pants, gray top + shorts, orange top + pants, orange top + shorts, dress + pants, dress alone), essentially making this a capsule vacation wardrobe.
