April Stitch Fix + #H54F

Hey all! Happy Friday! I am super excited for the weekend for a few reasons: 1) the weather is finally supposed to be sunny 2) I have a wedding to go to and I love weddings 3) D is home and can help with Reese. It's the little things.

Overall I had a bit of a slow week. The weather was almost identical to last week. Monday was a beautiful, sunny day followed by multiple days of rain. Monday morning I was not feeling very well so unfortunately we did not get to take advantage of the nice weather. Tuesday and Wednesday I left the house only for an hour to run to Target. I feel like a shut in. Thursday was the most exciting day as I attended Fashion Week MN's kickoff event. I have wanted to do this for a while and I always miss it and/or can't get someone to go with me. This year my lovely friend agreed to go with me to a couple of events. On Thursday we headed out to the fabulous W Hotel at Foshay for the event. Definitely one of those "this is where all the beautiful people are" kind of places. Very modern furniture and decor. They had a DJ playing, models showing local designers pieces, small pop up shops and a step and repeat. It was definitely fun and I am glad we went, we were hoping for a little more fashion at the event. Oh well, it was a night out! Next week we are going to at least one more event for sure! Stay tuned. Here are a few pics from the night

My look for the night, stay tuned for details next week!

Given that this was overall a slow week, this seemed like a good opportunity to to share my most recent fix for H54F. I was really specific with her this time about what I wanted. At the time I needed something to wear for Easter, that I was really into the blush and light color trends. This is what she delivered....


I think she got the message. I love how my stylist makes things match. The color coordinations makes my heart skip a beat ;) Here is how it went:


1. LE LIS JUDIE KNIT DRESS

I asked for a pleated skirt but she could not find one. Instead she sent this. The floral  print was totally on point. I really loved the color choice. It's feminine without being uber girly. I think if this was a different fabric I would have liked it more. It was like a jersey knit and I would have preferred something more structured. More of a personal preference than anything else. The fabric and the way it laid on me I think made me look a little older. Just not my jam. It goes back.

2. LILA RYAN DORIANNA DISTRESSED FRAY HEM SKINNY JEAN

This was totally on point as well in terms of what I was looking for. The light wash is very in for Spring and a little distressed never hurt anyone. The frayed hem trend I am getting on board with. I think I prefer the subtle version like this as I imagine by this time next year it won't be in fashion at all. I think I would have really liked these if they fit. It's  my mistake I did not update the size. Technically, they fit but just barely. Still a little pregnancy weight. I am still trying to figure out if I will get all the way back to pre-pregnancy size so I would rather not spend a lot of money on a bigger pair of jeans at the moment. So, they go back.

3. COFFESHOP LENNI HOODED CARGO JACKET

Ok so there was so much that was great about this: blush, cargo jacket, cool inside. Downside? I already have a cargo jacket and just don't feel like I needed another one. If I didn't have one this probably would have been a win for me. Perfect for these cooler Spring temps we are having. Unfortunately, back it goes.

4. CLOTH & STONE ALANIS BUTTON FRONT TOP

We have discussed how much I love chambray, yes? Well I do. I loved this but was not sure if I should keep it at first seeing that I already have several chambray tops. I liked the light wash of it, which is different than what I have. I do wear it not rolled up and buttoned, I tend to have too big of a bicep area and it just wears too tight. I ended up keeping this one because I sent all the other items and didn't want to lose my $20. In retrospect I am really glad I kept it. It's really adorable and just an easy throw on kind of top.

5. BLU PEPPER CATLIN SPLIT BACK TOP

Lastly was this split back top. This had a lot going against it as a split back which would mean I  would need to wear something underneath. It also hangs in a weird way on me that made me look wider than I am, who wants that? Finally it had this crochet type design on the back. Not my style. This was a pretty clear no and back it goes.

There you have it. Not my most successful box, but mostly for sizing issues and/or I already had similar pieces. I am excited for my next box, which will be more in the summer.
