My April Stitch Fix shipment had the most lovely pieces inside. The Milly Pointelle Detail Pullover Sweater and Silva Button Front Top are instant classics for my spring wardrobe. If you just arrived at this page, I highly recommend clicking the image below to check out the first page of this post. You'll also see why the Christiana Printed Pencil Skirt just didn't work for me.

Nova Scotia Plaid Infinity Scarf
The next item I tried on from my April Stitch Fix box was a Nova Scotia Plaid Infinity Scarf from Mangrove ($38). At first, I had a difficult time imagining how I could style this scarf for spring. Aside from the teal stripes, the scarf looked more to me like it was leftover from the fall inventory than a new item to gear me up for spring.
I stepped into my closet and had to get a little creative with styling the infinity scarf. I drew inspiration from the orange shades and decided to have a little fun mixing prints by pairing the scarf with a white and coral blouse I have owned for a few years. It's like the scarf was made to go with my polka dot blouse and mixing prints never looked so good!
Knowing that there are a few April showers in my future and more chilly days ahead, I started by pairing the scarf with layers made for cool, damp days. My black Pixie pants and gloss Hunter boots make the perfect ensemble for the rainy day blues.
As a final experiment, I styled the outfit with my matte black Tieks. The finished look was a little more polished and I love how the pop of teal on the soles of my shoes coordinated with the same shade in the scarf.
If you've been thinking about trying Tieks yourself, you should take a look at my honest Tieks review to see if they would be good for you.
I scoured the internet in search of a similar blouse. I couldn't find any with coral polka dots, but I did find a few other polka dotted blouses that would nicely compliment the scarf. You can find them in the widget below.
Before I set the scarf aside and moved onto the final item included in my April Stitch Fix box, I wanted to experiment just a little more with the scarf. I knew it would be a perfect piece for the fall and I suspected it would look pretty fabulous with the coral Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top that I received way back during my 9th fix.
I know that it is not fall now, but this is such a great look. Pin it now so you'll have it for style inspiration later this fall. I'm also dying to finally purchase the ivory version of this top extender. I think the lighter colored layer will look especially rich and stunning.
Even though I loved this outfit, I'm mentally filing it away and saving it for the fall. Let's get back to those spring styles. I still had one last item that was perfect for spring!
Ramos Tie Neck Blouse
The final item that Layla sent my way this month was Ramos Tie Neck Blouse from Alice Blue ($48). This navy blue sleeveless blouse with white polka dots was a perfect classic style, which I quickly discovered was very versatile for any occasion!
I started by dressing up the blouse with the black Emer pants from my 16th fix and a simple pair of round toe black pumps (similar here). Even though it's a tie neck blouse, you don't have to tie anything. I just let the tie ribbons casually hang untied.
I wanted to keep the overall look clean and sophisticated so I wore it with the necklace and jewelry from my wedding. Those pieces are so special to me and I'm always looking for an excuse to wear them.
My wedding jewelry is a little pricey for day-to-day wear so the statement necklace I found at Nordstrom BP also worked great and looked lovely with the blouse.
I also wanted to play with mixed prints so I traded the Emer pants for the Walt Striped Skirt from 41Hawthorn that came in my 5th fix. Yup, it's a pencil skirt and even though I wasn't quite comfortable wearing the skirt, you have to admit, it looks like it was made to be worn with the Ramos Tie Neck Blouse! I also added a nude pair of patent leather heels (similar here but I love the look of these rounded toe heels even more).
The one drawback of the blouse is that the arm holes were a little large on me. I wore a white tank underneath to keep things modest. I also loosely tied the ribbons around my neck.
It's always nice to have separates that can easily be dressed up, but I prefer to dress for comfort. Fortunately, the Ramos Tie Neck Blouse also looked great with the Briley jeans from my 33rd fix.
The outfit was cool and comfortable. It also gets me so excited for warmer weather. For added warmth, I wore the Jaclynn 3/4-Sleeve Button-Up Cardigan from my 3rd fix. The v-neckline of the cardigan was a perfect complement to the blouse.
White and navy is such a classic color combination and I am officially ready for spring!
Here's a list of everything that arrived in my April Stitch Fix box and what I decided to keep.
Christiana Printed Pencil Skirt from Margaret M ($78) – KEEP
Milly Pointelle Detail Pullover Sweater from Mystree ($68) – KEEP
Silva Button Front Top from Skies are Blue ($54) – KEEP
Nova Scotia Plaid Infinity Scarf from Mangrove ($38) – KEEP
Ramos Tie Neck Blouse from Alice Blue ($48) – KEEP
Yes, I did choose to keep the skirt. I know I'll never wear it, but Stitch Fix offers an incredible 25% discount on everything if you decide to purchase the entire contents of your box. It was nearly the same price for me to keep the skirt than it was to return just one item. I now have a gorgeous floral pencil skirt that I intend to sell on my Insta account @mariasellsthings tomorrow morning at the discounted price. You might want to do yourself a favor and subscribe to that account if you've got your eye on that skirt :)
How to Get the Best Clothes from Stitch Fix
Wondering how I always get such great clothes from Stitch Fix? One reason is that I've been a customer for a long time and my stylist, Layla, has learned a lot each time she has styled me. Another reason has to do with how I communicate with Layla to let her know exactly what I love (or don't like so much) about each piece that comes my way.
