We are at that point in summer when it’s just so hot I’m grabbing anything that will keep me cool over really trying to put together some great summer outfits. We’re talking knits, easy dresses, t-shirts, and whatever comes out of the laundry of my favorite outfits and I can grab first.

That’s why this is one of my favorite times of year to go ahead and get a Stitch Fix. If you haven’t heard of them, they are a company that sends you five items to try, and you can either ship them back for free or keep any or all items. They have professional stylists who pick the items, and you can communicate and can specific needs to them. I’ve had a Stitch Fix come when I was trying to figure out my weird sizing postpartum body, when I was nursing and needed some help finding fun nursing friendly pieces, when I was pregnant and just over dressing the growing belly, and when I had lost weight and was ready for some fun casual date night looks when I had no time to shop!
So it felt like a good fit to try some fun summer items for my casual everyday wear, maybe for some casual dates, and I really wanted some quality knit that won’t fall apart and will still keep me cool! But also always guys, I only let myself keep one or two pieces, so I need your advice on which are your favorites and vote I keep!
#1: This hi-low knit skirt that’s super high quality, flattering, and doesn’t hug the wrong places. I’ll be honest, I’m leaning toward this one for sure! I can think of a hundred outfits, my toddler’s sticky hands will wash out super well, and I’d wear it with a shirt like this, sandals, and a hat for a casual date night.
#2- This flowy-sleeved top in coral, with #3- this geo print knit pencil skirt. I kind of loved pulling these out of my Stitch Fix and realizing what a fun outfit they would be together! I would so wear this out to dinner, but each piece could totally work as a casual mom outfit, or dress up for business meetings and date nights.
And here are some of the things you can expect for the summer 2017 Stitch Fix that they are highlighting:
- flutter sleeves
- statement sleeves
- flattering knits
- off the shoulder sleeves
- dresses galore
- modern cuts and styles
- feminine details
- fall transition pieces
#4- The ultimate cute t-shirt, I love the mixed materials, the washability, the flattering cut when I’ve had a few too many ice cream cones to cool down in one week, and I can see it as an everyday mom wear, or something I can dress up with fun pants or a dressy skirt.
I got a 5th item, but it just didn’t work with my lifestyle, so we’re just going to go with those four as options for my summer stitch fix options, and I’d love to hear your favorite!
Also, have you tried Stitch Fix yourself? If you want any shopping help, a fun treat, unique items, and all for a super affordable price I’d highly recommend trying them out, it’s always a great fashion pick-me-up when I’m feeling too busy to shop or in a style rut.
