Now that the frenzy of my wedding and honeymoon have calmed down, summer has arrived and I am ready to bolster my wardrobe with some new fashions! My 23rd shipment from Stitch Fix arrived this week and it was SO amazing, I decided to keep every item in my fix! You'll want to read all the way to the end of this post because I'm also giving away a $20 Stitch Fix gift card!

My husband, Rob, and I are slowly settling into our condo and you will notice a change of scenery for these photos. The extra bedroom that we intend to use for our shared office gets the best lighting, so I propped up my mirror in that room and started shooting! The room is currently empty as we wait for our custom desk/workspace to arrive so it will be interesting to watch our office take shape in the coming months. But I digress. Let's get into this Stitch Fix review!
The first item included in my fix was a Deena Crochet Back Blouse from Daniel Rainn ($68). I felt inclined to take a risk with the blouse when I tried it on so I mixed prints and initially paired it with the Walt Striped Skirt from 41Hawthorn ($68) that came in my 5th fix. They actually looked pretty great together!
I don't often wear skirts (I greatly prefer dresses over separates) so I paired the blouse with a pair of Sophie skinny jeans from Kensie ($88) that came in my 4th fix. I still wear these jeans all the time and they looked great with the blouse.
I have been asking my stylist, Layla to try and find more blouses with smaller arm holes (I really dislike the giant armholes that often come with sleeveless blouses.) This particular top was perfect. No giant armholes here!
The crochet detail on the back of the blouse was also quite beautiful. I paired it with the layering cami that was included with the floral blouse from my most recent fix. The ivory cami provided a beautiful contrast with the navy blue crochet. I also adore the fact that the blouse is slightly longer in the back to provide a little extra coverage.
Layla also included a beautiful coral Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan from Pixley ($48). She had previously sent a very similar dark green cardigan in my 16th fix, but the color didn't suit me and I really wanted to brighten up my wardrobe. I was overjoyed to see this bright and happy cardigan included in this fix. Coral is one of my favorite colors to wear and this cardigan will be perfect to have at school on the days that they blast the AC in my classroom. It also happened to look pretty great with the Deena Crochet Back Blouse.
Quick story! See my sandals in the photo below? I bought them for my wedding dress and it killed me to keep them locked up in the closet without being able to wear them so I actually slipped them on for my 20th Stitch Fix post as a little hint toward the wedding. I didn't say anything about it in my blog post, but it was a fun little “Easter Egg” for my readers.
I don't tend to wear a lot of blouses on the weekends, but I still like to look nicer than just wearing a t-shirt and jeans so I paired the cardigan with a tried-and-true tank that I purchased at Old Navy a few years ago. This made for a wonderful weekend look.
The third item in my fix was a yellow Sicily Pintuck Detail Silk blouse from Daniel Rainn ($78). I am such a sucker for yellow. I own very few yellow clothing items, but it is one of my favorite colors. (I love it so much that I once owned a yellow car and loved driving it all over town).
The blouse looked great with my Sophie Skinny Jeans from Kensie.
The blouse was a little plain and I needed something to break up the color and add contrast to my outfit. The 4th item in my fix was perfect for this! Layla included a Callie White Denim Jacket from Kut From the Kloth ($78) in this month's box. I already own a small collection of blue denim jackets, but I don't have a white one! This jacket was perfect.
I love how the jacket is slightly cropped and had a nice tailored fit. It will pair nicely with my maxi dresses throughout the warm summer months.
The fifth and final item included in my fix this month was a navy and white Colibri Sleeveless Top from Market & Spruce ($44).
At first I wasn't really sure what to think. I loved the idea of the blouse, but look at the arm holes. It was also really long. and needed to be jazzed up somehow. I tried adding a belt, but that really didn't do any favors for my figure. Not wanting to give up on what could be a great layering piece, I swapped my jeans for a pair of fitted white capris and added a mint cardigan. Big improvement!
The look was a little on the baggy side, but it was something I could see myself wearing on a more casual day. It's too bad I don't sail because something about this ensemble really made me want to go sailing.
I still sensed that this blouse still had untapped potential so I dug way back in my closet to my winter clothes and found a basic gray sweater. The sweater is actually a Michael Kohrs item that I snagged a great deal on at TJMaxx over a year ago and always seemed a little plain to me. I put it on over the blouse and WOW. I think I found the perfect use for it!
Now I really want to go sailing! Who wants to take me out on their boat?

Stitch Fix is an online styling service for women. It's free to sign up and build your online style profile. To create your style profile, users just answer some basic questions about their sizes and clothing preferences, as well as setting price limits on different types of clothing.

For a $20 styling fee, you will be matched with your own personal stylist who will review your style profile and hand-select 5 items that she thinks will be perfect for you. Shipping is free and the items arrive right at your door. This service is wonderful for busy women like me who love new clothes but don't have time to shop. It's also great because you can try everything on in the convenience of your own home; using your existing shoes, accessories, and coordinating items. You have three days to try on the clothes and make your choices. When you are done, sign in to your account and check out. Then place any items you do not wish to keep in the pre-paid shipping envelope that is included in your fix and drop it off at the post office. That's it! You will only be charged for the items you wish to keep and returns are free too!

If you choose to keep everything in your fix, you automatically save 25% on your entire purchase, in addition to earning back your $20 styling fee! If you are doing the math from my own fix, the original price of all of the items was $316, but I could save $79 by purchasing every item in my fix. The new price for all of those items is just $237.
