Sometimes you get a Stitch Fix box that is full of surprises and my first postpartum Stitch Fix shipment was definitely one of those boxes. When I logged into my account on the Stitch Fix app to preview the items sent my way, I was underwhelmed. I was hoping for a few more comfy, practical tops in this month’s fix that I could wear while changing diapers, rocking the baby, and chasing around my two-year-old. But everything that came my way was a disappointment when I previewed my Fix. Even the colors (navy blue, brown, and dark green) didn’t appeal to me. When I opened my Stitch Fix box, I noticed that I had a different stylist (Amanda) and I thought that explained the reason for the clothes being a little “off” this month. But I took a deep breath and started trying on all of the items in my Fix. I was shocked to discover that I actually really liked everything that came my way and could have easily been convinced to keep all five items.

Feena Button Down Textured Top
When I first saw the Feena Button Down Textured Top from Kut from the Kloth ($68), I immediately assumed I wouldn’t like it. I rarely wear navy blue tops because it always seems like too much blue when I pair it with denim. The shirt was also lightweight and now that winter is coming I am cold all the time. Once I tried on the top, however, I quickly became a fan. The Feena Button Down Textured Top had a very flattering fit and was a great length. It fit me well without clinging to any of my post-baby curves and made me feel very confident.
I styled the top with the Vigoss Marley Super Skinny jeans that came in my 2nd Style Edit from Wantable and a pair of brown suede booties. I kept the accessories simple with just my silver Kate Spade watch (similar here) and a delicate silver necklace (similar).
RECREATE THE LOOK
I had a feeling that the Feena Button Down Textured Top would look especially nice paired with my plaid puffer vest from J. Crew (I bought mine a few years back, but there are several listings for the same vest on Ebay). I loved the look of mixed prints and felt so much cozier with an extra warm layer on top. I also added a pair of brown riding boots (similar here) and was ready to conquer the day. This look was just my style.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Emory Toggle Fleece Jacket
Stitch Fix always has the best outerwear and I always want to buy it all! The Emory Toggle Fleece Jacket from Market & Spruce ($88) was no exception. The fleece was super soft and had a very flattering fit. The jacket was also a great length and so cute! It looked adorable layered over the Feena Button Down Textured Top and I was seriously tempted to the jacket.
I ultimately decided to send the jacket back to Stitch Fix because 30-degree temperatures had just rolled into Michigan and I knew I wouldn’t get enough use out of the jacket this season. I’ve already been wearing the green puffer jacket that came in my 28th Fix most of the time. If the winters in southeast Michigan were a little milder, I would have kept the jacket in a heartbeat.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Trumer V-Neck Knit Top
I’ll admit that the black Trumer V-Neck Knit Top from Market & Spruce ($28) didn’t seem like anything particularly special or impressive, but it was actually a basic layering piece that I desperately needed. Since Harvey was born, I have been wearing lots of cardigans and have been rotating through a very small collection of layering t-shirts that are fitted but not too clingy. This top the bill perfectly. It was super soft, a perfect fit, and I love that the black is a dressier alternative than my usual white t-shirt (it also does a better job of hiding any unwanted curves.) Best of all, the Trumer V-Neck Knit Top was soft and stretchy for easy access when breastfeeding or pumping.
I kept things very simple when I first tried on the Trumer V-Neck Knit Top and styled it with Vigoss jeans, my black slide-on Ugg sneakers, and a few gold layered necklaces (this one is my current favorite).
Since cardigans have become my go-to attire these days, I also added a cream Madewell Summer Ryder cardigan from a recent Trunk Club shipment. I loved how easily this look came together and can’t get over how put-together it all looks thanks to a great-fitting black t-shirt. This one was a keeper for sure.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Eve Ribbed Open Cardigan
I loved the Trumer V-Neck Knit Top so much, I kept it on and paired it with the camel Eve Ribbed Open Cardigan from Ralph Lauren ($98) that also came in my fix. This cardigan was gorgeous and another absolutely perfect fit. My former outfit worked well for the daytime, but the Eve Ribbed Open Cardigan was perfect for a night out with Rob or one of my girlfriends. It looked so stylish and I quickly fell in love with the long, lean look.
The Eve Ribbed Open Cardigan was easy to style with my Vigoss jeans, gold layered necklaces, and suede camel booties. It was a difficult decision, but I decided not to keep the cardigan because I will only wear it with heeled booties and that’s simply not practical for me or my budget right now. I hardly ever have a reason to dress nicely for an evening out and when the opportunity does arise, I have other clothes in my closet that suit the purpose well. That being said, I did add the Eve Ribbed Open Cardigan to my Christmas wishlist – which is even better because I found it discounted online for 33% off. You can grab it here and I’m going to hope I find it tucked under the Christmas tree in a few weeks.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Leroya Crew Neck Pullover Sweater
The last item I tried on from my Fix was a dark olive Leroya Crew Neck Pullover Sweater from Vero Moda ($58). I’ll admit that this was the item I was least excited to try on. I wasn’t a huge fan of the color, but I went ahead and tried it anyway. Once I was wearing the sweater, I could definitely appreciate the good qualities it had to offer. The Leroya Crew Neck Pullover Sweater was soft, cozy, and had a great length. It also fit me well.
I styled the Leroya Crew Neck Pullover Sweater with my Vigoss jeans and camel booties. I also added my long gold Kendra Scott necklace (similar here) to give the look a little pop. Once I was all put together, the thought briefly crossed my mind to keep the Leroya Crew Neck Pullover Sweater since it was so comfortable, but I just couldn’t get past the color. I really like olive green as a neutral, but this sweater was just too dark for me to enjoy wearing. I ultimately decided to return the sweater to Stitch Fix, but I may request it in a different color for a future Fix.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Now that I have a baby and a toddler, life at home is a lot crazier than it used to be. It felt really good to take a break from diaper duty, style my hair, and try on this month’s clothes. Even though it was her first time styling me, Amanda did an awesome job of sending clothes that were just my style and it was so refreshing to put the frumpy clothes aside and feel like myself again.
What I Kept and Returned from my Postpartum Fix
I honestly can’t believe how much I loved trying on all of the pieces that came in my first postpartum Stitch Fix box. I may not have been very excited when I saw the preview of the clothes my stylist selected this month, but this turned out to be a surprisingly fun Fix that was, in fact, just my style. Here’s a quick recap of what I chose to keep and return this month:
Feena Button Down Textured Top from Kut from the Kloth ($68) – return
Trumer V-Neck Knit Top from Market & Spruce ($28) – KEEP
Eve Ribbed Open Cardigan from Ralph Lauren ($98) – return
Emory Toggle Fleece Jacket from Market & Spruce ($88) – return
Leroya Crew Neck Pullover Sweater from Vero Moda ($58) – return
