Three items into my August Stitch Fix review, and I was already in love! My stylist, Layla, sent the most beautiful floral dress, mint striped knit top and coordinating purse in my fix this month. If you missed those items, click the image below to read the full review.

With three new items already being added to my closet, I was excited to see what else Layla had selected. The remaining pieces were more vibrant and had certainly caught my attention. You'll see what I mean in a moment.
Lalisa Crochet Detail Knit Top from Loveapella
My jaw nearly dropped to the floor when I realized that Layla had sent a second short-sleeved top my way this month. Admittedly, the Lalisa Crochet Detail Knit Top from Loveapella ($54) was more of a statement item that I was searching for, but it was made of cotton and it had short sleeves.
The top was beautiful from the front, but it was the lace panel in the back that made it truly special. I'm a sucker for anything lace and this was lovely.
I wore the floral shirt with white pants (similar), sandals and my silver Kate Spade watch . The colors really had a chance to pop agains the white and it was such a fun look for summer, while once again being very comfortable. The feminine statement necklace was a nice complement to the lace detail on the back of the shirt.
I was so tempted to keep this blouse, but it was a size extra small and was just a little more snug than I was comfortable with. Sadly, it was destined to be returned, but I had so much fun styling it while I tried it on!
Kamala Skinny Jean from Tinsel
The final item Layla included in my fix this month was extra vibrant. I was simultaneously excited apprehensive about the bright red Kamala Skinny Jean from Tinsel ($68) that was at the bottom of my Stitch Fix box. On the one hand, I thought, “no way – these are a little too bold for my taste.” On the other hand, I knew from experience that Layla sometimes pushes me out of my comfort level and into embracing a whole-new style that I wouldn't consider on my own.
So I grabbed the bright red pants and headed into my closet.
There was just one problem. The pants were really tight. So tight, I could barely button them. As a result, I reached for the longest blouse I had in my closet that would match the Kamala Skinny Jean. Fortunately, the Daniel Rainn Vivienne Floral Print Sleeveless Blouse from my 19th fix looked great with the pants, especially when I added the Kut from the Kloth Callie White Denim Jacket I received in my 23rd fix (similar here). I also kept on the statement necklace and silver Kate Spade watch because they just go so well with everything.
The bright red pants may not have fit or matched my personal style, but I just know that one of you will be fabulous enough to totally rock this look. If you love bold pants, these pants might be perfect for you.
What I Kept from my Fix
Even though a few items were a bit more bright and snug than I prefer to wear, this was another fabulous fix. Here's the breakdown of everything I decided to keep and return from fix Stitch Fix shipment #39:
Lideea Dress from Donna Morgan ($158) – KEEP
Lynden Satchel from Urban Expressions ($58) – KEEP
Catarina Knit Top from Papermoon ($44) – KEEP
