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! Prepare your eyes for some serious style inspiration and feel free to pin your favorite photos to your style board on Pinterest so you can make recommendations to your own personal stylist at Stitch Fix. You’ll also want to read all the way to the end of this post, because I’m giving away a Stitch Fix gift card!

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!

Great fall fix! What did you keep/
Try the polka dot with a yellow or green scarf!
My favorite is the blouse with the floral drawings–it’s lovely! And, really expensive! I’ve been doing SF for three or four months, and although I often like what they send, it’s seldom the type of clothing I really need. So I end up keeping items that really aren’t building my wardrobe. It would be less expensive to go to Kohls or Christopher & Banks and buy a pair of pants and a cardigan! I always love seeing your fixes, though.
I love the necklace that you paired with the Malaga Drape Cardigan. Where did you get it from? Thanks!!
I inherited it from my aunt. I wish I could tell you more about it!
I have that silk blouse and it’s one of my favorites. I’d love the color you have it in-mine is an orangy pink.
Cute!!! I love the burgundy sweater!! So pretty!! And the pants look so comfy!! So cute with your boots!!
I love your fixes and how you style them! It always so fun to see your creativity and it inspires me with my clothes!
Where do you get your white tees? I love the cut of your tee with the burgundy cardigan and that is a basic wardrobe staple that I always struggle finding!
Thank you 🙂
FYI I’m a Stitch-Fixer in training and still learning my style. You look fabulous!! I love the polka dot sweater the most.
I accidentally put the wrong username in my entry for TpT. I hope that doesn’t disquailify me from the contest.
I’ve been pondering over Stitchfix for some time now. I actually found this through a hashtag search on instagram! 🙂 Your pieces are so cute!
You always get such great fixes! I love that floral shirt if it wasn’t so expensive and those pants are amazing for Fall! I think the polka dot shirt is adorable and you should definitely spring for the red vest. : )
Your posts are so great. I love how you show us all the little details. That particular KS necklace is stunning. Love the Liverpool Reagan skinny pants on you! And love that subtle print with the hints of orange! I requested similar in my Fix and received the same pair this week, but in a different print! Unfortunately they were way too long on me – I’m 5’1″ and CS checked on availability in a petite size to no avail. So sad – mine were a subtle olive chevron-esque print. Have you found anything similar in stores??
Hi Maria, I love seeing all of your lovely Stitch Fix posts! I think you would really enjoy this program called Dressing Your Truth http://dyt.liveyourtruth.com/. It is a beauty profiling system that helps you to refine your personal style. There are four types of energetic movement and I could really see you being a type 2. Type 2s often choose comfort over style and they appreciate a very feminine style. I notice the items of clothing you often keep are either flowy, comfortable or a muted color which all go toward the fluid flowing type 2 movement. I do not work for dressing your truth, I just love it and believe more people should know of it then do! I think if you find that you like DYT it would help your Stitch Fix stylist to help find the perfect clothes that work %100 of the time! And also, learning about the different types is free!
I got the brown (with light check) Liverpool pants in my September Fix as well. It’s November and I’ve worn them several times and washed them. They don’t bag out of shape and washed beautifully! LOVE LOVE them. Thanks Stitch Fix . #Stitchfix
I love those Reagan pants! can you buy them anywhere? Can I buy yours?? Haha. Is there a way to request this style/pattern in a fix?
Hi Rose! They are REALLY great pants 🙂 You can request items by pinning your favorites to your style board on Pinterest. I usually leave a personal note in the pin description that asks my stylist to send them my way. Then make sure your style board link is shared in your Stitch Fix style profile. I have found that it is a very helpful tool for communicating with my stylist.
HI Maria, I just happened to come across your blog while researching pink leather jackets and what to wear with them, and I love your outfits and how you look in them. I appreciate your selflessness running the giveaways. I plan to enter when you have your next one. I subscribed to your newsletter and I’m getting my 2nd stitch fix on my birthday. I too, love the color red and hope one of my pieces is in that color. Thanks for your positive and encouraging energy! ?
I received a different Alessandro Floral Print Silk Blouse but I love the one you received.
Oooo, I want to see the one you received!
could you tell me where you bought the photo behind you in this picture?
