My Stitch Fix maternity boxes have progressively been getting better and better. This is my experience with them in general- the more feedback you give, and the longer your stylist gets to know you, the better it gets.
This time the lovely Layla (my stylist who is the absolute best ever) totally nailed it, and I kept all 5 pieces. Wanna see?
I love how colorful this box was! And so many great pieces that are cool enough for this blazing hot Texas summer, but also great layering pieces for the cooler months, too. Plus, lots of stuff that will still work the few months after baby is born. (Scott is dying over our half pressure washed driveway. He might have asked me to photoshop that out.)
Healdsburg short sleeve boatneck knit top- $54
This top is not something I’d spend $54 on, but since I decided to keep all 5 pieces, the 25% discount made it worth it. It’s super long and stretchy. The material is super soft without being too sheer. I loved the print, and think it will look great under a long cardigan this fall. I paired this with a pair of underbelly blue denim shorts I got from a local boutique during my last pregnancy, and my Minnetonka mocs.
Lottie pleated maternity blouse- $64
I’m loving tops that are a little more flowy this time around. I also think this will be comfy under a loose sweater later this year. Plus, the buttons on the top half mean I can probably breastfeed in this pretty easily after baby is born. I’m wearing my favorite Mossimo jogging denim shorts from Target’s juniors section- not maternity, just sized up. Then I threw on some silver slides from a Stitchfix box earlier this year.
Dorianna maternity cropped skinny jeans – $98
Alma maternity knit top – $44
Bryson kimono – $48
The trifecta! This kimono was the first thing I pulled out of the box, and I was SO happy with it before I even put it on. It dresses up any t-shirt and shorts this summer, and will be a great staple next spring to throw on over nursing tanks. I hope to get a couple more.
The stretchy knit top is very similar to the blue patterned one above, in that it’s a bit more than I’d typically spend on a maternity t-shirt. But, the fit is so nice, it’s long, and stretchy and soft. The discount made it easy to say yes.
These jeans! Okay, so I can’t wear them too much right now, but they’ve made it out to dinner on me once, and they are super comfy. I love that they are an unusual color. Best part, though, is they are full belly panel and will make an awesome 4th trimester piece after baby is born this winter.
When you’re stocking up on maternity clothes, always keep that 4th trimester in mind! What tops are breastfeeding friendly (if you plan to do so)? What can you throw over a nursing tank? What pants will give you enough stretch and coverage for that shrinking, but still jiggly belly? It can be hard to do because you’re mostly pregnant in the opposite season, but basic layers are a good place to start.
I’ll probably take a bit of a break from maternity fixes until the weather starts to cool down. I’ve got a really nice summer wardrobe now with the help of my last 3 boxes. Want to see my last two? They’re both in this post.
