Oh shopping. Such a love-hate relationship!
I am completely that woman who mothers at home in workout clothes and only really wears real-people clothes when I go out in public. Not really because I care what other people see me in (per se) but more because I want to smell nice instead of sweaty.
Is that normal? I really really hope so…
HOWEVER when I step back and look at my clothes lately I can’t say I’m really all that impressed. Apparently I like to wear a lot of black, a lot of T-shirts, and a lot of hoodies/pullovers. I know what’s in style, but I don’t really know how to make it work for me, especially when we have a limited budget and I can’t just go out and buy a whole new wardrobe when I find that my pre-baby clothes are all getting too big. Trust me, I’m thankful for that, but at the same time it makes wearing grown-up clothes a little challenging.
I haven’t made it a secret that I really enjoy StitchFix, and I’ll tell you two of the biggest reasons why:
- IT IS SO STINKING CONVENIENT. Y’all, they deliver the clothes to your door, you have three days to try them on and style them with other clothes you currently own, and then shipping back is free and they include the bag. It’s kind of a no-brainer for me when my schedule is all over the place and I just don’t know when I’ll be able to go shopping.
- THE CLOTHES ARE REALLY CUTE. I love that I have the option to have my stylist pick out things that are similar to what I already love or to pick out new fun things that I would probably never look at if I were doing it all myself. Each item comes with a little card showing you how you could wear it, which is inspiring to say the least!
I’ll be honest, I have a really difficult body to style for, so there have been times that I have only kept one thing from my fixes; I have broad shoulders, muscular arms, a straight waist, and muscular legs. I love my body and wouldn’t change anything about it (other than keeping it strong), but it definitely makes the clothes thing a little difficult at times. I’ll say this though: with each fix I get more and more amazing options, thanks to the ability to give my stylist feedback. My newest shirt from my last fix is probably one of my favorite things ever, and I love that it’s super easy to layer for Fall/Winter/Early Spring but light enough to pair with summer clothes too!
