This month I decided to reign in my Stitch Fix budget a little and limit myself to just one item from my March Stitch Fix shipment. I had tried on three items already, and while each of them was a great piece, I wasn't convinced that I would wear any of the items often enough to justify making it “the one”. If you missed the sweater, blouse and pants that I already tried on, you definitely want to click over to page one of this post and get ready to do some pinning. If you already saw those items, you're ready to continue the review this month, so let's get to it.

Patrick Chino Pant
Layla was looking ahead to spring when she included a dark pink pair of the Patrick Chino Pant from Level 99 ($108) in my March Stitch Fix box. I received the same pair in olive in my 21st fix and a light pink pair in my 22nd fix. I kept both previous pairs so I already knew these would be a perfect fit. they also were the perfect compliment to my Daniel Rainn blouse. I added my denim jacket from Old Navy (a wardrobe staple) and a pair of gray flats (similar here, splurge here).
No surprise, the pants fit perfectly.
If I wasn't anxious before, this outfit had me positively ecstatic for spring to arrive. It's very comfortable and can easily be worn to work in my kindergarten classroom, running errands on a weekend, or even to a family picnic. The opportunities are endless.
A few basic accessories really helped to complete the look.
Just in case you didn't already figure it out, I kept the pants :)
If you love these pants, you may also want to check out the olive and light pink pairs that arrived in my previous fixes. Click any of the images below to see more photos and my full review. (I've always thought that the light pink pair actually looks more like a purplish gray than pink.)
Lucio Henley Blouse
Which left only one item in my March Stitch Fix box – the Lucio Henley Blouse from Alice Blue ($48). Right off the bat, I loved the price. Most of the blouses I purchase from Stitch Fix cost $60 or more. This one was a bargain. And of course I was instantly drawn to the fact that it was a floral. I wasn't quite sure what to make of this particular floral, but there was only one way to decide how I felt.
I tried the blouse on.
It was a perfect fit and was very flattering to wear. And it truly had long sleeves, which is a bit of a rarity among Stitch Fix blouses. Most of the longer-sleeved blouses I receive are a 3/4 rolled or tab sleeve. While this blouse came with tabs so it could be rolled up, it was nice to leave the sleeves unrolled. They were also long enough for my arms. Another plus.
While I love a good floral blouse at a reasonable price, I couldn't quite get past the colors in this top. Particularly the pink. You can't really tell in the photos but it was basically neon pink. So, while this blouse was intriguing and it certainly had my attention, I ultimately had to let it this one go and send it back to Stitch Fix.
So which items did I keep and which went back to Stitch Fix? Here's a recap of my March Stitch Fix box!
Angus Split Back Mixed Material Sweater from RD Style ($68) – RETURN
Arca Henley Blouse from Skies are Blue ($58) – RETURN
Harper Bootcut Pant from Liverpool ($88) – RETURN
Patrick Chino Pant from Level 99 ($108) – KEEP
Lucio Henley Blouse from Alice Blue ($48) – RETURN
I know chinos are pricey, but I wore the green and light pink pairs I received last year all summer long and I know I'll get a lot of use of of this dark pink pair as well.
How Stitch Fix Works
If you read this post and wondered how on earth I managed to get such fabulous clothes delivered to me (and who on earth is this Layla person), it's time for me to fill you in! Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service for women. It's totally free to complete a style profile at StitchFix.com. When you are ready, you can schedule your first fix.
(This is when the fun really starts.)
For a $20 styling fee, you will be matched with a personal stylist, who will review your style profile and hand-pick five clothing items just for you. You can request specific items (like the amazing blue scalloped dress from Stitch Fix you saw on Pinterest a few weeks ago) or even tell your stylist what to avoid (my own style profile reminds Layla to please not send any v-neck tops my way). You can even track your package on the Stitch Fix iPhone app and sneak a peek at the items your stylist selected for you.
You have three days to try the items on in the comfort of your own home, with shoes and accessories you own. This allows you to really understand how well each piece will fit into your existing wardrobe. Keep the items you love, check out online, and return any unwanted items in the pre-paid shipping envelope that is included in your fix. Shipping and returns are totally free. And the $20 styling fee will automatically be discounted from the clothes you purchase when you check out.
