It's here! And by “it”, I mean my Spring Stitch Fix box, and also the arrival of spring weather. After a very reluctant start, spring temperatures have finally begun to make an appearance in Michigan and I am hopeful that winter weather is finally behind us. Even with the delayed spring weather, my fix this month was pretty fabulous. It was also filled with great layering pieces – because my stylist somehow must have known that I would need warmer items to get me through the changing temperatures right now. It may be getting quite warm during the day, but the nights and early mornings are still downright cold. Speaking of my stylist, I got a new one this month. I'm not exactly sure what happened to Kate (my previous stylist), but I noticed that Julie styled me this time around and she mentioned giving me “a season full of perfect fixes” so I have the feeling that she will be here to stay. Kate started styling me for maternity fixes when I was pregnant with Dessa so I have suspect that maternity and post-baby is her specialty and now that I'm 100% back to normal (or at least as normal as I will ever be again) I may have transitioned back to a non-maternity stylist. All of this is speculation, of course. Regardless, I can't wait to show you my spring fix. Julie did a lovely job and I'm already excited to see what she ends my way next month.

Jillyan Raglan Sweatshirt
When I first glanced through the Stitch Fix app to see which items were coming my way, I was certain that I would end up keeping the Jillyan Raglan Sweatshirt from LNA ($98). It was such a great, basic piece to add to my wardrobe. Then I touched the sweatshirt and felt how incredibly soft it was. THEN, I noticed the price. With a $98 price tag, I knew I probably wasn't going to keep the Jillyan Raglan Sweatshirt, but I tried it on anyway.
I styled the Jillyan Raglan Sweatshirt with my gray Keds, a pair of distressed jeans that also came in my fix (more on those in a minute), and a simple lightweight pendant necklace. I also wore a white tank top from Old Navy underneath the sweatshirt.
The sweatshirt was super-soft and very comfortable but it was just a touch shorter than I wanted it to be, which made it even easier for me to rule the Jillyan Raglan Sweatshirt out as a keeper. I loved trying it on, I just knew it wasn't meant for me.
Avalie Distressed Skinny Jean
You might recall that I just purchased two new pair of jeans from Trunk Club a few weeks back, so I didn't exactly consider myself “in the market” for a new pair of jeans. Both of those jeans were free of holes and I can always appreciate a conservatively distressed pair of jeans (I think I just made that expression up, but you know what I mean) so the Avalie Distressed Skinny Jean from Prosperity ($78) caught my eye.
The Avalie Distressed Skinny Jeans were also a perfect fit. The denim fabric wasn't particularly soft, but they had great stretch and fit like they were made for me. Not only that, but that had the perfect amount of distressing – just enough to make the jeans casual and interesting, but not so much that they looked like they were falling apart. I was so, so, so tempted to keep them! But I had three more items to try on, which all had lots of great potential, which made it too early to decide quite yet.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Estefany Lace Detail Split Neck Blouse
I kept on the Avalie Distressed Skinny Jeans and changed into the Estefany Lace Detail Split Neck Blouse from Daniel Rainn ($64). I was already a little smitten with the blouse before I tried it on because it was a soft neutral color and I loved the pleat details down the front of it. The bird print added a sweet and charming element. I especially loved that this blouse could easily be dressed up or down.
In this case, I decided to dress the blouse down with the distressed jeans and my gray Keds. I added a feminine touch with my silver and gray Kendra Scot Elton bracelet and a super-simple statement necklace that I bought in-store at Old Navy (you can grab a more elaborate version here).
What I love most about the Estefany Lace Detail Split Neck Blouse is how versatile it is. The blouse looked beautiful on it's own with just a pair of distressed jeans. For an added layer, it also looked great with a navy or a blush pink cardigan. I don't know about you, but I'm partial to the pink!
RECREATE THE LOOK
Marissa Scallop Trench Jacket
As excited as I was about the Estefany Lace Detail Split Neck Blouse, I got all the heart eyes when I saw the Marissa Scallop Trench Jacket from Honey Punch ($68) that Julia had included in my shipment this month. I always have a weakness for great outerwear and I just recently bought an amazing pink spring jacket. I really didn't need another pink jacket, but this one was a trench with scallops! Scallops! I kicked off the Keds, put on a pair of camel brown booties and added the trench over my ensemble.
As it turns out, the Marissa Scallop Trench Jacket wasn't as fabulous on me as it was in my head. It was a little boxy and it felt a little cheaply made. The jacket wasn't lined and the polyester had a funny texture. Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of polyester items in my closet – mostly blouses from Daniel Rainn (including the Estefany Lace Detail Split Neck Blouse) but they all feel soft and silky. The Marissa Scallop Trench Jacket was different and I really didn't care for the way it felt. Needless to say, this one wasn't a keeper, but it's a good thing since I have a perfectly good new pink jacket already sitting in my closet.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Sinclaire Floral Print Blouse
With four items down, there was only one thing left to try on from my Spring Stitch Fix box – a navy blue Sinclaire Floral Print Blouse from Kut from the Kloth ($68). I adore a good floral print and I was excited to try this last item on. I decided to take a break from my usual look of busy mama trying to look cute while she chases a baby around the house and go for the mama needs to get out for the night look. (Thank you cute booties for easily elevating my look!)
The Sinclaire Floral Print Blouse was fabulous. It was a perfect fit and a great floral blouse. It was soft, feminine, flattering, and would be a great addition to my closet. At the end of the day, though, I loved the white Daniel Rainn blouse the most, so this one had to be returned. What a shame, though, because it was so cute!
RECREATE THE LOOK
What I Kept from My Spring Stitch Fix Box
My Spring Stitch Fix shipment definitely required a healthy amount of self-control because there were so many great items inside – especially the two fabulous blouses and distressed jeans. I went in circles over which item to keep but ultimately decided to keep the sleeveless white blouse. It was too sweet to send back and I couldn't resist the fun twist on a classic white blouse.
