Stitch Fix is, in my opinion, one of the BEST personal styling services out there. Their stylists have an uncanny ability to nail your style and send you items that are in your budget, look great on you, and take your style up a few notches. If you’ve been hanging out here with me for a while, you know how much I love getting new Fixes!

 

In today’s post I’m going to share some Stitch Fix style inspiration and tips (these photos are from their Style Guide/blog). And don’t forget, you can request anything you see here by leaving a note for your stylist when you request a Fix!!

 

1. Perfect fall layers from Stitch Fix

How cute are these two outfit from the Stitch Fix Style Guide? Are you dying over that soft, fluffy coat? I love it with the ripped jeans. And the dress topped with the cute scarf and denim jacket would be perfect for teaching, work, or a casual date night. I might add some black or gray leggings if it’s cold out.

2. How to Wear a Moto Jacket Stitch Fix Style

This is a perfect look for work, and I love that there is leopard involved and also that the shoes are FLAT! My poor achy, tired teacher feet can’t handle heels more than a day or two per week.

 

I love the sporty stripes on these pants (which also look veerrrrry comfy, no?) and the cute, snappy loafers absolutely clinch the comfy-casual, but still tres cool, vibe going on here.

 

A good navy-and-black combo is my jam!! I don’t wear then together very often, but whenever I do I wonder why I don’t make it happen more often. This jacket adds the perfect amount of edge to the fancy dress, sparkly clutch, and pretty heels. In all honesty, though, I would swap out these heels for some black mid-heel ankle boots. Dainty spike-heeled sandals and those poor achy, tired teacher feet referenced above do not play well together. Ankle boots, though, I can handle.

3. Staying Cozy with Stitch Fix

Any fall or winter day you get to wear a long cardi is going to be a good day. You know this because you’ll be both comfy and cozy in that big ‘ole robe-like thing! I’m pretty partial to boho looks, and this dress-and-cardi combo looks really comfortable, which I’m also really partial to. I would totally wear this outfit to teach.

 

This outfit is so “me”! I wear variations of this very combo probably 3 days a week. I am so glad that turtlenecks are back from the dead (warm neck and you don’t have to find a necklace to jazz it up!). These ankle boots are super-cute and I love that they are navy!

This look is so neutral and chic. I love that it’s another way to get away with wearing leggings (leather-like or the regular old yoga pants variety) at work, too. I would probably swap out the stiletto booties for some chunky ankle boots or even a cute fashion sneaker. You know, the whole poor achy, tired teacher feet thing.

 

This is another look that I aspire to on a regular basis. This trucker-style cargo jacket is adorable in the olive color and would go with just about anything: jeans, pants, dress, skirt — you name it. I can see wearing this jacket with a turtleneck sweater or even a dressy hoodie. I’m partial to these more than I am to button-down shirts. But either way, though, this look is a winner.

 

Just for fun, here are some links to my favorite past Fixes. Don’t forget, though: if you want the free November Stitch Fix styling fee, you need to sign up with the links in THIS post, not the ones below.

So, enjoy and be sure to share what you got in your Fix! I love seeing other people’s Fixes and then requesting items (like that sweet fluffy coat above!).

Winter Wishlist (a.k.a. eyeing, but not buying)

You know winter’s coming when the temperatures start creeping downward like an old pair of underwear. Every year about this time I look in my closet and see that I have absolutely NOTHING to wear. Hah. If you’re like me, there are plenty of things to wear…just not anything that I really want to wear. Since I’m on a strict self-imposed budget this year (I haven’t bought any new clothes for myself except for a Costco sweatshirt in three full months!! Pretty sure that deserves a round of applause, y’all), I’m trying to make myself content with “Windows” shopping — LOL. So, last Sunday when it was gloomy and rainy — and when I had an extra glorious hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings Time falling back — I decided to share some of the things I’ve been eyeing, but not buying.

Shop each of these cuuuuuuuute items below, and then PLEASE, please let me know if they are as amazing as they look! If I can’t shop myself, I would love it if I could vicariously shop through you. 😀

 

1. Buffalo Plaid Everything!

Remember awhile back when I was all up on the buffalo plaid (or checked, whatever you want to call it) patterns for home decor? I’m still digging that stuff, but I’ve expanded my horizons to clothes and shoes.

2. Soft, Cozy Chenille Sweaters

Chenille is a thing this fall and I hope it continues to be a thing this winter. I mean how can it NOT, seeing how warm and cozy it is. The only problem I ever had with chenille sweaters is if I wear them in the car without a coat, the seatbelt sometimes rubs the fuzz off where it hits, leaving a seatbelt-shaped wear area on my cozy, soft sweater. So I guess the solution there is to just wear a jacket or coat over your cozy, soft chenille sweater when in the car.

3. Furry & Fluffy Coats

I have wanted a furry coat for the past few years, but I won’t get one. It’s not that I don’t love them…I do! It is just that I don’t know how often I’d really wear one. If I’m going to be outside when it’s cold, I want a coat to keep me warm. That coat usually involves down and weather-proof material. Okay, maybe I look like the Michelin Tire Man in it, but I’m warm and that’s what counts. I really don’t have a need for a “nice” winter coat because I don’t dress up and go out a lot during the winter. Well, or the summer for that matter. I mostly dress up for school or church, and all I do outside on those days is run from the car to the door and back. Soooo, no fluffy coat for me, but I sure do like to look at them. *Side Note: There is one coat in here, the Military style coat from Mango, that isn’t fluffy or furry (it’s probably just velvety), but I also really have been wanting a military style coat lately and this one is sooooo chic that I included it here just because I love it and it didn’t fit into the other categories any better. 🙂

4. Soft (as in Furry & Velvety!) Boots and Shoes

Cold temps means cold tootsies. Some of these boots are stuffed with shearling and fur to keep your tootsies warm. A few of the other boots here are velvety and chic and would dress up a pair of jeans or leather pants or hold their own with more elevated winter looks. My birthday is coming and I told myself I could spend about $50 on clothes when it does. Although I really, really wish I had $350 to drop on those killer Birkenstock Nuuk boots (and if anyone’s feeling really generous, they ARE what I want for my birthday! LOL), I might instead drop a mere $35 for those furry Sorel indoor-outdoor slippers.

 

Then I also found these really sweet new Adidas Gazelle shoes that have a bit of fur on the back heel accents. So cute!

 

So there’s my Winter Wishlist! What types of winter goodies are you wishing for this year?

Just Add Earrings

Statement earrings aren’t usually my thing. For one, they’re often heavy and I really don’t like the feeling of my earlobes being stretched for 8-9 hours while I’m at school. My other problem with some statement earrings is that many of them are too long for my neck (which, to be honest, may be because I have a too-short neck…lots of times I think turtlenecks are too “tall” for me….). So most of the time I wear short or medium-sized earrings or studs.

 

Enter these earrings from a recent Rocksbox set (read about that set here):

They’re the Ibiza earring in gold and hot coral and they’re by Wilde.  I really like them because they’re lightweight and the length almost-but-not-quite brushes my shoulders. They’re also not stiff or scratchy, and the tassels are soft if I ever do tilt my head enough to make them touch my neck or shoulders.


 

Earrings like this can certainly be worn with dresses or dressier looks, but I love that they also have the potential to dress up an everyday casual outfit. Check out how they pop against this fairly monochromatic blue outfit.


 

Shop This Look:

  • Gap Softspun Sweater/Pullover:  No longer available, but they have an even cuter flutter sleeve Softspun top in this same color. It’s $44.95, but Gap is always having good sales so you can probably get it for less than that.

  • Mavi Alexa Mid Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans: Amazon, $75-$100, depending on size
  • Sorel Lolla Ankle Boots: Amazon (via Sorel), $112
  • Wilde Ibiza Earrings: Request them at Rocksbox (get a free month with promo code EVERYDAYJENXOXO)
  • Scarf: From Target awhile back; check here for similar ones mostly in the $13.99 – $16.99 range

 

This look was dressy enough to wear to teach and just about as comfortable as it gets. You don’t find that combination too often! It’s my favorite combination, by the way.

 

 

Best of all, I could even wear this on a rainy or snowy day because these Sorel boots are made to handle that kind of stuff. Don’t think I was made to handle that kind of stuff: you can give me a sunny, warm beach any day.
