Stitch Fix for Vacation

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a lovely one. It’s been so much fun to read through how your goals are going for 2015! Keep ‘em coming. I’m getting in vacation mode, so I thought I’d share what I got in my latest fix, aka Stitch Fix for vacation.

This one was a home run! My fixes can be hit or miss, but lately they’ve been awesome (see my Stitch Fix tips here). I always love seeing what other people receive in their Stitch Fix (<—referral link) boxes (especially so I can pin the faves!) and really appreciate the fact that they now have maternity. As someone who had a hard time finding flattering maternity clothes during my last pregnancy, I would have loved to have the option to try on new pieces at home (that someone else picked out). 

I asked for some pieces that would work for our upcoming trip, especially since I’ve become guilty of horribly UNDERpacking. I’ve gone from one spectrum to the other, friends. Back in the day, I was notorious for taking 6 pairs of shoes for a 3-day trip, and now, I find myself having worn all the clothes I packed with two days left of our vacation. For this shipment, I requested some summery pieces in bold colors that could be dressed up or down, and Alexandra (my lovely stylist) definitely hooked it up.

As far as the pants go, they did not fit.

Most of my regular jeans and pants are still working -I use the hair tie trick to secure the button- but only the ones that have zippers (that can be unzipped and then re-zipped when I get into said pants). The floral pants did not have buttons, nor zippers, and were lacking in the critical pregnancy stretch factor. I briefly tried to sausage myself into them before deciding it was not worth it haha. They are very cute, so I’m keeping them -you get a 25% discount if you keep all 5 items- and hopefully will still be in style next spring? 

If you’re curious to learn more about Stitch Fix, here is my first fix ever, and my most recent fix!

Do you overpack for vacations or underpack? What’s your current fave thing in your closet? For me, it’s become these white jeans. I wear them all the time! 



 In full transparency, I paid for the above items using Stitch Fix credit from referrals to the brand over the past couple of years. Thank you so much for your support! I’m thrilled that many of you have tried it and love it as much as I do <3

  3. I love all of it!! I am loving the gauzy top! I am looking some up asap!!

  4. Love all of your fix!

  5. Maxis = wear during the day = wear out at night = sleep in as PJs. Perfection.

  6. I love the red long dress. So pretty!

  7. You look great in everything, but that blue dress hits it out of the park! Adorable!! 🙂

  8. You’re right, your stylist knocked it out of the park! Love everything you got, especially both of the dresses. I bet you’ll get a lot of use out of that maxi dress this summer as your bump grows!

  9. I love that first top! And that last dress!

  10. I love that maxi dress! so pretty and flattering!

  11. The first top looks so comfy!

  12. I absolutely love that maxi dress on you! Glad you kept it! I am such an overpacker, but I do end up wearing everything I pack, so I guess I’m not too bad of an overpacker!

  13. Amanda Lynch says:

    You are so beautiful in all of these items!!! Love that blue dress, and the red one is going to be great for Hawaii! This makes me want to be pregnant again! 🙂

  14. I love that last dress- so pretty!

    I am proud to say that I feel like I have perfected my packing skills. The last few trips I’ve been on, I have worn everything that I packed, and not had to re-wear items (unless it was something like jeans, as I definitely always re-wear my jeans). It’s been a long work in progress but it’s become a point of pride 🙂

    Currently my favourite piece in my wardrobe is my fake leather jacket. I wear it all the time- and it was something I was worried to buy (even though since it was fake it was quite cheap) because I thought I would never wear it!

  15. Those dresses are GORGEOUS!!!

  16. You look stunning in the two dresses. The bold colors look great with your hair and skin!

  17. Wow! The red maxi is incredible on you!! The color compliments your skin tone *perfectly!*
    Where did you get the heels you are wearing with your (also amazing) blue dress? love love love!! I MUST HAVE THEM! 🙂

  18. So many cute things! I’m super jealous because I finally broke down and got my first StitchFix and it. was. terrible. Nothing in there flattered me at all and half of it wasn’t my style at all (and I linked them to my Pinterest page!) I’m signed up to receive a second one, but I may change my mind. Maybe I’m just too picky for SF? Or I have a weird body type? It may be best for me to shop for myself… :/

    Clothes-wise, I’ve really gotten my packing down recently. I always make sure to have one outfit for every day, assuming repeats of bottoms a few times, with a couple extra tops for good measure. And I just shelve the idea of being overly cute (unless it’s a trip with my girls or the husband and I have a date night planned) so, shoes-wise, I usually get away with just a couple of pairs of sandals/flip flops. I do always try to pack workout clothes, but I hate wearing sneakers in everyday life, so my running shoes always take up so much room and only serve the one purpose! That’s the biggest clothing packing indulgence I make. Now, toiletries…that’s a different situation entirely…

  19. That maxi dress looks fantastic – it suits you so well!

    I haven’t gotten around to trying Stitch Fix yet but I really must do that soon…

  20. That blue dress though >>> Looks amazing on you!

  21. That blue dress looks amazing on you! I just scheduled my next fix! Can’t wait to get it.

  22. I am such an overpacker! It’s the worst… but I’m getting better!

  23. LOVE the maxi dress!!!

  24. Love it! StitchFix is always hit or miss with me as well. Regardless I’m always excited to see what I got! Love that Maxi dress. Probably my favorite summer staple : )

  25. You are looking great!

  26. LOVING that red maxi dress on you!

  27. Love everything! Really good this time around. 🙂

  28. I love that maxi dress on you! You look great in such a vibrant color, Gina. 🙂

  29. The dresses look beautiful and perfect for your upcoming trip! I love reading your StitchFix posts – I wish we had a service like that here in London. It is so helpful and a great way to be introduced to new brands.

  30. Beautiful dresses! It is so hard to find cute and comfy maternity clothes! What island are you going to visit in Hawaii? We are stationed on Oahu! Can’t go wrong with any of the islands! Enjoy your trip!
