Spring Wardrobe Styling

This post is in partnership with Stitch Fix but all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting our sponsors.
As we jump into the new Spring season and I continue to learn to dress my postpartum body, I was excited to try Stitch Fix for the very first time! I partnered with my Stitch Fix stylist to help me choose some new things for my spring wardrobe so I have some fresh new looks that make me feel like my best self this season. I filled out an extensive style profile and was able to make clear my preferred fit, budget, and lifestyle. I shared with my stylist that I was 6 weeks postpartum and trying to navigate dressing a still-squishy belly while needing things to be fairly nursing-friendly as well. I asked for help in finding a great pair of good fitting jeans and some transitional booties. I suggested maybe they send me some cute casual tops for my everyday outfits and I also asked for a dress option for Easter! I was excited when I read that some of the Stitch Fix brands include lots that I already know and love - like, Free People, Sam Edelman, rag & bone, Rebecca Minkoff, and Madewell. Each Fix you get includes 5 pieces to try and here's what I got!
One of the things I loved most about my experience was the outfit suggestion cards that came with each piece! So not only was I getting to try new pieces, I was also getting bonus styling advice! The outfit suggestions included things I already had in my closet so here's what I came up with for outfits!
I loved the dress they sent and you could tell my stylist listened to me as it had the tie detail in the midsection which made me feel comfortable even with a still-squishy belly. I also loved the idea of adding a denim jacket over it for a more casual look. They paired it with the booties that they sent which also fit LIKE A DREAM.
The next piece they sent was a great pair of jeans like I had asked for. I was so excited that they sent ones that actually fit. There's nothing more defeating for me than trying on things that don't fit after having a baby. They were high waisted with a good stretch. Perfection.
The outfit suggestion of a floral top and moto jacket and heels with these jeans sounded perfect for a date night so I couldn't wait to style them with my closet pieces.
The spring top they sent me was so flirty and fun. Not form fitting and another great option for an easy daytime look or date night!
I used their outfit suggestion and paired it with some distressed denim and heels. Adding a hat to this one just felt right for spring too!
The last piece I got was this ultra-soft drawstring top. This was a very realistic piece for my everyday life.
I paired it with yoga pants and sneakers per one of their outfit suggestions and felt like it was an easy go-to top for errands or for working out.
Overall I was super pleased with my first Fix and can't wait to schedule another one. I just added a Pinterest board to my Stitch Fix profile of some new looks I want to try next time! I love that you can just request a Fix when you want a closet refresh or set them to arrive on a schedule based on your needs. And if something doesn't fit or doesn't quite fit your style,
returns are super easy and free. Each Fix comes with a pre-paid envelope and you just keep what you want and send back what you don't.
So, I want to give you $25 in Stitch Fix credit to try it for yourself! Because you'll definitely want to see what new Spring looks they'll send your way!
