Did you guys know Stitch Fix has a maternity line (and a petite line, too!)?
After looking back on my last fix, almost exactly a month ago, it’s sort of crazy to see just how much the belly has grown in four short weeks. And hey, what do ya know…today officially marks 23 weeks along. Talk about things flying by!
At any rate, we’re not here to talk about my growing bump…we’re here to talk Stitch Fix! I wasn’t super detailed in the note to my stylist on what I was looking for, although I did say that I wouldn’t mind some maternity leggings, an open cardigan, and maybe some other tops that could transition well into postpartum. Some delivered, some did not…but here’s a look at my latest fix.
And FYI, you’ll notice my face is cropped out of all of this month’s photos. I was hoping the pink eye would be gone by the time I went to snap these pics, but no such luck.
Margerie Stripe & Dot Open Cardigan
I wasn’t super sure of the Margerie Stripe & Dot Open Cardigan from Market & Spruce ($68) upon taking it out of the box. While I loved the fit and the shape of it, I guess I just couldn’t get totally on board with the patterns.
Which is really odd, because I do love polka dots and I do love stripes. But I guess this one just wasn’t doing it for me.
But oh, hayyyyy there, growing bump. Does it not look HUGE right here?!
This one wound up being a Return.
Tawny Open Drape Cardigan
I was immediately intrigued when I saw the pattern of the Tawny Open Drape Cardigan from RD Style ($78) peeking out behind the tissue paper in my box. It looked fun and, honestly, like nothing I really own.
But again, it just wasn’t really doing anything for me. The material wasn’t super soft, and I think part of me is already in (wishful thinking) spring fever mode, so I’m trying not to invest in anything too heavy. I will say, however, that I do love the colors and the pattern of this sweater…maybe if it had been sent in, say, November?! This one was a Return.
Ailene Lace Sleeve Maternity Knit Top
The Ailene Lace Sleeve Maternity Knit Top from Madigan ($54) is something I had high hopes for. I loved the navy blue color, and I thought the lace sleeve detailing was beautiful. But upon putting it on, I just couldn’t do much to make it look flattering. I tried pairing it with a few different types of bottoms, and these leggings were the closest I could get it looking like something I’d want to wear.
Also paired with my Muk Luk boots – still can’t find the exact pair, but these are similar.
I still can’t quite pinpoint it, though. Maybe it was the length? Or just the way it flowed from the empire waist? Either way, I just couldn’t get it to work for me (which I was super bummed about because, for whatever reason, I really wanted to keep it!). But it was a Return.
Carlile Brushed Trapeze Maternity Knit Top
I can’t even begin to tell you how soft and amazing the material is on this Carlile Brushed Trapeze Maternity Knit Top from Madigan ($54). It’s like a soft, cozy fleece that feels like a little piece of heaven when you put it on. Okay, I know I’m being a little dramatic, but seriously. It’s SO cozy!
The thing is though, I still can’t totally decide if I like it enough to keep it. Obviously, I get that there is extra fabric to allow for a growing belly, but sometimes the way it hangs, it just feels like maybe it’s a little too flowy and big??
But the more I think about it…knowing that I’ll only get wear out of it for maybe another 4ish months (because I don’t think it would like right without a belly bump), I think I should probably pass on it. Even if it does feel like heaven. So…Return.
Porter Maternity Legging
Along with the top above, I’m also wearing the Porter Maternity Legging from Rune ($58). And out of all of the items that came in my first maternity fix, these are what I liked the most!
Honestly, do I really neeeeeed another pair of maternity leggings? That could be questionable (I currently own three). But, considering I’d be happy wearing leggings every. single. day., I feel like that in and of itself sort of justifies the purchase, right?
I wasn’t super sure at first, since I’m picky about waistbands that go over the belly on maternity pants, but these were pleasantly comfortable without digging in too much. For now, at least.
So out of all of the items that I was sent, these I decided to Keep!
- Margerie Stripe & Dot Open Cardigan from Market & Spruce ($68) – RETURN
- Tawny Open Drape Cardigan from RD Style ($78) – RETURN
- Ailene Lace Sleeve Maternity Knit Top from Madigan ($54) – RETURN
- Carlile Brushed Trapeze Maternity Knit Top from Madigan ($54) – RETURN
- Porter Maternity Legging from Rune ($58) – KEEP
