Well, I did it again guys [read: girls]. I opened my latest Stitch Fix box, laid my eyes upon all 5 items, and thought "Okay, I think I like a few of these things.." because that's how it always works with me and Stitch.
I put up a front like what is sitting there in front of me isn't going to be that awesome. And then you know what happens right? I try all of the items on and I suddenly NEED IT ALL. That's what I love most about this service. The items that my stylist chooses for me are not always necessarily items that I would first pick out for myself which ultimately makes my wardrobe a lot more unique, exciting, diverse, and a lot less "hey look! another plain long sleeve grey shirt!" I don't know what it is with me and grey long sleeve shirts...
Anyhow. This month my stylist did an awesome job of picking up on my recent pins and sent several inspired looks from my fashion board. I also love that she is also so aware of my state's idiotic weather patterns and sends items that are functional for the season we are in right now. Needless to say, I ended up keeping the entire box because well, love always wins. Lets take a look at what showed up on my doorstep this month [remember ladies -- if you would like anything similar in your own fix, pin away baby].
1. Moon Collection - Bailee Cowl Neck Knit Poncho - Small [kept]
Initially I thought "a poncho?!" Aren't these for grandmas or ducks or somebody else other than me?! But then, oh but then...I put this baby on and my world changed forever. Even the husband said immediately "hey, I like that! It kinda seems like you would never want to take it off.." and that husband of mine suddenly became the most right he has ever been. I love that I can wear this piece right now due to the perfect Spring color yet has the warmth factor that us Indiana folk still need. Perfection. PONCHOS FOR EVERYONE.
2. Hailey 23 - Joel Long Sleeve Layered Striped Dress - Small [kept]
The last several fixes I have told my stylist to send a work appropriate dress. For my work, this means it has to have sleeves and it has to cover a few inches past my crotch. Unfortunate I know. I didn't actually quite understand what this was when I pulled it out of the box. After putting it on I was all "omg! It's a sweater over a dress! and it's all in one! this is amaaaaaaaazing!" I like to keep drama at bay when trying on clothes ;) This dress is everything [now would be the time I beg that you come feel how soft it is]. I love the split open back. Oh what fun it is.

As I mentioned earlier, I'm a sucker for a basic grey shirt. However, it turns out I'm even suckier for a grey shirt with some added details. I love that there are two different materials going on here and the lines of the shirt keep it all interesting.
4. Street Level - Juno Small Folded Clutch [kept]
For this fix, I requested a clutch or purse. I typically always say "no accessories" in my notes to my stylist, however I had been noticing some awesome clutches on their "this just in" Pinterest boards and I wanted a little piece of the goodness. Boy, did this clutch deliver. For starters it's yellow. If you didn't know this, I really like yellow. Secondly, it's such a great size meaning it's big enough to have all of the crap I need and small enough to keep out all of the crap that I think I need but that I don't actually need.
Last but not least, we have this fun top. I was also a little on the fence with this one but after wearing it and taking in the nice shoulder breeze it allowed for, I thought "why wouldn't I keep it?!" And so I did. I think I'm going to get all sorts of risky and wear this to work for a fun pop in the office.
And that concludes one of my very favorite fixes.
