Fall is just around the corner and my brown riding boots have been staring at me from the dark recesses of my closet, waiting for a chance to see daylight again. I asked my stylist at Stitch Fix to send some items that will be great pieces to add to my fall wardrobe and wear with my riding boots. When I opened the box that arrived at my door, I was positively in love with all of the rich colors and couldn't wait to try everything on. This is one beautiful Fall Stitch Fix review!

Alessandro Floral Print Silk Blouse
The first item I tried on was an off-white 3/4 sleeve Alessandro Floral Print Silk Blouse from Amour Vert for Stitch Fix ($118) blouse with a soft black floral print. In addition to asking for fall layers, I have been begging my stylist to please send more long-sleeve blouses my way and I can't stop pinning floral items. I just can't get enough florals at the moment. Typically, you would expect to see lots of florals in the spring and summer but the black and off-white coloring of this particular blouse make it ideal for the cooler months. It's a gorgeous winter white. With a such a steep price tag, I tried this blouse on fully expecting to ship it right back. I paired it with the Emer High Waisted Tall Trouser pants that came in my 16th fix and a pair of Kelly and Katie black pumps (which I bought from DSW last year but are available at Walmart this year for an amazing price!) I also added some light beads and my black Chelsey stainless steel Fossil watch.
The outfit was fun and effortlessly dressy for a date night with my husband, Rob, or a girls night with my friend. I easily made the outfit a little more casual by adding a denim jacket from Old Navy.
Gideon Polka Dot Sweater
The next item in my fix was a Gideon Polka Dot Sweater from 41Hawthorn ($68). At first, I wasn't sure if this sweater was preppy-chic and J. Crew style or more of a cliche teacher look. There was only one way to find out!
I tried the sweater on with my new Rizzo Skinny Pant that came in my most recent fix. I feel in love with these amazingly structured, ultra flattering and professional pants when I tried them on and I was happy to have an excuse to wear them (even if it is just for a few photos!) I also wore a pair of basic black riding boots. I kept the accessories simple with the same black fossil watch and silver Elisa Kendra Scott necklace that came in my Rocksbox.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the sweater was warmer than I expected for how lightweight it was. I'm always cold in the winter and this will be a great piece to keep me warm. I just had to do something about ALL THOSE polka dots. They were a little overwhelming and busy. The sweater needed something to break things up a bit, so I dug into my closet and did the unexpected. I wore the Callie White Denim Jacket that came in my 23rd fix. I know you're not supposed to wear white after Labor Day, but here we are and I just did. And it was ok! The white denim actually looked stunning over the sweater and allowed for just a POP of polka dots.
I might not always be bold enough to wear the white denim and I may need some extra warmth on cooler days. This sweater also looks pretty great with the Pierina Textured Colorblock Peacoat that came in my 12th fix.
I don't own any down vests, but I can't help but think that this sweater would be ideal to pair with a bright vest for a pop of color. I LOVE this dark poppy Excursion Vest from J. Crew and this bright red Kendra Scott Andy Open Pinch bangle bracelet. I'm also slightly obsessed with the color red right now and the thought of this ensemble is giving me goosebumps. I might have to give down vests another try!
