For the past six months, I have been receiving bi-monthly deliveries from Stitch Fix. If you haven't heard of this service yet, Stitch Fix is like having your own personal stylist. You go to the website, fill out a style profile, and they send you items that match your budget and style. You keep what you want and send back what you don't. You can adjust your "fixes" to receive them as often as you'd like. The stylist even goes so far as to check out your Pinterest board for inspiration and send you a note about the pieces they picked for you. There is also an incredibly handy chart for pairing your pieces with other items to achieve different looks. I love seeing the ideas they have for each piece.
I'll be honest, I don't always have the time or energy to look farther than my local Target for trendy pieces. While I absolutely adore Target, I know that a lot of people shop there and it's not always fun to match your students. Working with adolescents has taught me that not only do people look at what you wear, but they look at how you wear it. My students know when I am comfortable and confident. It's not the clothes themselves that make me a better teacher - it's how I feel when I wear them. Enter Stitch Fix. I get my boxes bi-monthly and it's like a holiday every time they come in. I get so excited to see what they will pick for me!
This month I received two amazing outfits, so I thought it would be fun to share with all of you to see which you think I should keep. All photos were taken by the lovely and talented Crosby Rothey. Here we go!
Outfit #1: Renesme Geo Cube Jersey Faux Wrap Dress
This is not a dress I would have originally picked for myself, so I'm always thankful when my stylist sends me something that is outside of my comfort zone. This dress is so vibrant and the print is fun! It is incredibly comfortable and the cut is so flattering. Pair it with some cute flats and you are good to go for the day. This is something I would feel very comfortable teaching in- and best of all- it's easy. I love no-fuss fashion.
Outfit #2: Emmett Slim Straight Leg Jean with Teslow Flutter Sleeve Knit Top, Ashton Crochet Lace Kimono, and Delmara Embellished Lace Up Sandals
Depending on your school's dress code, some of you may be able to teach in a pair of white jeans. I could wear this outfit on a special "jeans day", but probably not for everyday wear. This would be more of a weekend ensemble for me, but I really love this look. The top and kimono are so soft and feminine - exactly my style. The shoes add a pop of shimmer and the lace up details are lovely. This outfit is so flirty and fun! I love it.
Now comes the hard part - picking which one I want to keep. If I want to keep all five pieces in both of these outfits, Stitch Fix will give me a "box discount" of 25%, which is really nice. I'm just not sure I need to keep both right now. Help me figure out which to keep my commenting below with your vote for "Outfit #1" or "Outfit #2".
If you'd like to try Stitch Fix, I would love it if you'd use my affiliate link. I am not being compensated to write this post, but I do get credit for anyone who signs up through my link. I truly love the service and I think you will, too. It's just another way to infuse some self-care into your busy schedule.
So, which will it be- "Outfit #1" or "Outfit #2"?
