Casual Errand Outfit featuring Stitch Fix

Thursday, January 19, 2017

I have a bit more time to run errands during the week while I'm on maternity leave and I've been making use of it.  After I drop my big little off at school in the mornings, me and the little little get to gallivant around town.  I try to get things taken care of in the morning so I can (in theory) go home and rest.  Ha!  Tired as I am, I've tried to make an effort to look decent on my trips outside of the home.  Thanks to this anorak I received in my December Stitch Fix box, I feel like my efforts are successful.  At least on this day.  In case you need more info, you can read about how Stitch Fix works here.  I couldn't find a link to the jacket but I found some similar options here and here.

Running around with a newborn requires a diaper bag.  This striped diaper bag was a shower gift and I love it and am so grateful for it.  It is the Skip Hop Grand Central and has some awesome features.  There are so many pockets including a clear one perfect for extra passies aka pacifiers and it comes with stroller loops and its own changing mat.  Most of all, I love it because it looks good and makes me feel chic carrying it around in addition to a purse.  No bag lady syndrome here.

For other moms out there having to a schlep a baby and all the baby gear around, I recommend comfy shoes like my Toms.  I didn't think much about the brand until I saw them up close and personal on Joy of Basically Joy fame.  I thought the style was cute and she said they were comfortable so I bought some.  I needed some black casual shoes other than the ballet flats I wear everywhere.  The Toms are so comfortable and while the charitable aspect of them is controversial (some people feel free shoes does nothing to solve the actual problem), I feel good about my purchase.

Sorry this pic is such a hot mess.  It's blurry and my MAB tote was turned the wrong way.  This was my best full length shot, however.

More on Stitch Fix: my last box came in about 2 weeks after I gave birth and only two of the items fit me, one being the jacket from above and the other being the cuff pictured below.  I loved the jacket immediately and I decided to keep it, although a bit pricier than I would normally spend.  I actually don't have many jackets in my wardrobe so this piece was needed.  I returned everything else (a tee, a blouse and jeans) including the cuff, as it just wasn't a necessity.  I didn't take pictures of what I tried on and I didn't even set foot in the jeans that were sent.  They were so cute and were basically jeggings, but still, two weeks postpartum was not the time to try on jeans and I wasn't going to keep them to try on later.  

My next Stitch Fix box is scheduled to arrive right before my Anniversary in February so I'm looking forward to giving you guys a thorough review then.  Hoping it includes some dressier pieces.  Also hoping I can fit in the clothes like a normal person again!

  1. I love Stitch Fix! I can only afford to schedule a "fix" about once per season, but it's really helped me build a wardrobe of better quality pieces since I absolutely hate shopping.
