The latest Stitch Fix

Hi! How’s the day going?? Hope you’re having a great one so far. I taught BODYPUMP this morning, and am getting things together for spin and the week’s travel adventures. I’m so so excited to see the fam… and stuff my face with the glory that is Thanksgiving.

This weekend, Christmas came a little early when a Stitch Fix (<— referral link!) box arrived. My stylist joked that even though the San Diego hasn’t received the “winter” memo, she was going to send me some fall pieces in case it had started to cool down. I realized something about living here: even if it isn’t necessarily cold, people still dress like it’s fall. Last week, Liv and I were walking around in sundresses (it was mid 70s) and I realized that everyone around us was bundled up in sweaters and boots. It has started to get a little chillier in the mornings and at night, so I’ve slowly started to break out the fall gear. I was excited to see some new pieces in this fix!

I wasn’t planning on writing about it, but I realized that I usually post about the boxes where I keep everything. This is the exception and not the rule, because I almost always send a few pieces back. For this box, I ended up keeping 3 out of the 5 items. 

Here’s what they sent:

1) Splendid Delanie Knit Vest (<— on super sale right now at Neiman Marcus)

Splendid vest  1 of 1

(with black LOFT top, Kensie skinnies and boots from Italy)

Verdict: keeper!

This was my favorite piece that they sent! I’d been eyeing the big puffy vests, but figured that one wouldn’t be realistic with the weather here. This one is lighter and the fabric is super soft and dreamy. I also love the neutral color!

2) THML Melina Stripes & Embroidery Sweater

Thml sweater  1 of 1

(with Kensie skinnies and Oliberte moccasins)

Verdict: keeper!

At first I thought it might be too much happening at once, but I love it with plain jeans and my moccasins. I know I’ll be wearing it a lot, and love that it’s something different than the usual solid cable knit sweaters.

Speaking of cable knit sweaters…

3) Lemon Tart Pax Cable Knit Raglan Sweater (similar here)

Cobalt sweater  1 of 1

(with black skinnies and booties)

Verdict: send it back

The fabric was really lovely and it fit well, but I feel like I have a lot of cobalt and blue stuff in my closet right now (like this blue tank they sent recently). Decided to skip this one.

4) Gorjana Cayden Horn Charm Pendant Necklace

Horn necklace

Verdict: keeper

It seems like a delicate necklace, but then I saw that horn. I was like, “A horn? What?” haha. It seems a little edgy for my style, but that’s why I love Stitch Fix: they gently nudge me out of my comfort zone sometimes. I like that it can be layered with other necklaces, and decided to give it a whirl. Of course my mom brain immediately dubbed it a safety hazard (“I have to be careful that Liv doesn’t poke herself on my horn necklace”) so I imagine that I’ll wear it more for date nights or girls’ night anyway.

5) DL1961 Saira Ankle Length Skinny Jean

Jeans  1 of 1

Verdict: send it back

I liked the wash of the jeans, but they were too big. Instead of skinny jeans, they would have been saggy jeans. 

So there’s the recent fix!

Hope you have a lovely night! See ya in the morning with a new workout video and your Thanksgiving workout challenge. 😉



Capsule (ish) wardrobe

Hiiiii 🙂 Things have been pretty stale on the ol’ fashion page, but I’m excited to share some of the things I’ve done to minimize my stuff and create my own version of a capsule(ish) wardrobe. This idea was 100% inspired by my buddy in all of this, Maria, and this awesome blog and post. […]

Sale Fitness Finds

It’s that magical time of the year: the Nordstrom anniversary sale! This is when new fall gear is temporarily marked down before heading back up to full price. Since I love when friends share sale love with me, I thought I’d post some awesome sale fitness finds. Zella Space-Dyed Capris Zella Easy Hooded Top Horizon […]

Summer dresses

had me a blast… Summer dresses, happened so fast…. (Get it, Danny. GIF source here.) Hands down, summer dresses are my favorite wardrobe staple. Here in Socal (and also in AZ), you can wear them about 10 months out of the year (especially if you add a sweater, tights and boots), and I love that […]

Sale Fitness Fashion Finds

I’ve fallen in love with the active wear from Nordstrom. It’s easy to find fashionable and colorful fitness gear, but it can tend to get pricey since it’s high quality stuff. It’s Nordstrom’s half-yearly sale, so I thought I’d share some awesome finds for less than $60 if you’re Memorial Day weekend shopping too 😉 […]

Vintage flair

  I bought this dress over a year ago and have had yet to wear it. I was *waiting* to have it tailored -it was only $6 at a thrift store, so I thought it would be nice to have it fitted and hemmed a little- and when I finally took it in, my brusque […]

Meg: Weekend wears

I loved Gina’s ode to the Jumper from the other day, so I decided to do my own take on this new spring/summer staple. Jumpers are probably the most comfortable item of clothing ever created. Since I wasn’t sure if I could pull one off, I bought this simple black jumper from Forever 21 to […]

DIY: Cutoff Shorts

It’s not quite full-blown summer here in Tucson, but with 90 degrees in this week’s forecast I figured I’d share one of my favorite staples for warmer weather – cutoffs. They are simple, and CHEAP. This tutorial is very easy and requires zero sewing. First, you need to find jeans to transform. The best place to […]

OOTD: shades of grey

I can confidently say I’ve worn sneakers every day this past week. The Skyscapes pretty much haven’t left my feet, and they’ve been the perfect “moving” shoe: super comfy, light and match pretty much everything. I like the fact that I can dress them down (wayyyy down in jean shorts and a too-old-but-I’m-never-letting-go-of-this-one U of […]

Fancy sweatpants of the year award: the jumpsuit

Last year, my “fancy sweatpants” was the maxi skirt. This year: the jumpsuit. I’m one in, and already obsessed. (Tory Burch sandals/ long necklace from the madre) I ordered this fun printed jumpsuit on Shopbop a couple of months ago, and wasn’t quite sure I’d be able to pull it off. When it arrived, it […]

Meg: InstaFashion

The last two weeks have been JAM PACKED with moving, cleaning, rearranging, and adjusting. We are officially moved into our new place. There are still boxes stacked up in our guest room but we are definitely feeling settled. I am absolutely loving our new space! It’s much more updated than our last home and it […]

The latest Stitch Fix

Usually when I receive a Stitch Fix (<–affiliate link) box, two things happen: 1) I dance around with the box and while singing a beloved show tune (ok, so I just get reaallllyyyy excited) and 2) I usually know right away what I’m going to keep and what I’m going to send back. This is the […]
