My favorite time of the month is here again… Stitch Fix time! My personal stylist at Stitch Fix sent the most wonderful assortment of fall clothes in my latest shipment. I love Stitch Fix because new clothes are one of my all-time favorite things but I am so busy I never have time to shop. Stitch Fix solves that dilemma for me. I just complete an online style profile and pay a $20 styling fee, then a personal stylist selects 5 garments just for me! Shipping is free and I can try each piece on in the comfort of my home. I love the convenience of pairing each piece with clothes, shoes, and accessories that I already own. I keep the items I want, check out online, and return the garments I don’t wish to keep in the pre-paid shipping envelope that is included in my fix. Returns are free too!

This month’s arrival was so great, I kept EVERY item! I don’t want to hold you in suspense so let’s dig right in to these pretty pieces. First up was a printed dolman sleeve top. My stylist sent me a gorgeous lightweight dolman sleeve sweater in my previous fix. I raved about the sweater on my fashion Pinterest board so I was treated to a similar top once again.
This month’s dolman sleeve top had a fun teal and indigo geometric print. I paired it with my favorite skinny Kensie jeans (also from Stitch Fix). I added some gold jewelry, brown boots and my favorite rose gold & white ceramic Fossil watch.
The entire ensemble looked great and I felt so comfortable in my new printed dolman sleeve top.
My next item was a twist-back striped cardigan. I get cold very easily and I often have a lightweight summer or jacket around on the hottest of days. Especially in the classroom. The AC makes me freeze and I am always on the lookout for a stylish new cardigan to add to my collection.
I loved the bold look of this striped sweater and wanted to pair it with something FUN. I dug deep into my closet and paired the cardigan with the pink sleeveless fit and flare dress I received in my 5th fix. At the time, I wasn’t a huge fan of this solid bright pink dress but it was cheaper for me to purchase every item in my fix (Stitch Fix offers a 25% discount on all items if you purchase your entire fix) than it was to return the pink dress and keep everything else. I am so glad I kept the dress, because it was the perfect match for this black and white striped cardigan!
When worn with black tights, plain black riding boots, a simple strand of black beads and my black Fossil watch, this outfit is bright, bold and completely adorable. I love how the black tights take the emphasis off my legs and make the outfit seem much fore school-appropriate than if I wore it with bare legs and a pair of flats. I adore this outfit and it will help keep my mood lifted as the cooler temperatures begin to take over in Michigan.
Just in case you were wondering, the back of this cardigan is even more beautiful than the front. There are several pieces sewn together than give the sweater an interesting architectural quality. It also gathers and twists at my lower back, which gives the sweater a slimming effect. I’m telling you, this sweater is GORGEOUS and you need to have one for your closet.
This fix also contained a beautiful abstract print tulip sleeve blouse. At first, I wasn’t sure what to think of the print. It was definitely different.
Feeling inspired by fall, I wore the blouse with a pair of brown dress pants and some gold jewelry. Then I fell in love. The blouse was a perfect fit and the colors looked so rich.
The slight ruching detail on the sleeves is subtle but I like how they give the blouse a little something special.
I will happily wear the tulip sleeve blouse to work in my kindergarten classroom, but I also wanted to make it part of weekend-ready ensemble, so I added a cardigan, my skinny Kensie jeans, and brown boots. Perfect and ready for a trip to the cider mill or a drive to Northern Michigan to see the fall colors.
My boots are Enzo Angiolini and I purchased them a few years ago. You can purchase a similar pair here.
The next item in my fix was a gray pleated swing skirt. This knit skirt will be perfect for the cooler temperatures of fall and winter. I don’t own many skirts or dresses for winter. I’m always cold so it seems crazy to me to willingly wear skirts instead of pants when it’s 20 degrees outside, but sometimes an occasion arrises where I just need to bite the bullet and dress up. This skirt will be perfect for those occasions!
I paired the gray swing skirt with jeweled heels and a fitted royal blue cardigan and the look is perfect! I love how polished this outfit looks. I may not wear it to school, but I am certain I will wear this outfit occasionally during the cold months.
The fifth and final garment included in my fix was a fit and flare dress in a rich purple color that is perfect for fall!
Initially, I styled this dress with the denim jacket that was included in my 9th fix, a mustard scarf, and some gold jewelry. LOVE!
I was feeling experimental so I switched the scarf to an ivory knit scarf and changed my watch from white to black, but kept the black tights and plain black riding boots.
Finally, I added the denim jacket to the ensemble once again.
I love each ensemble that I was able to create with this simple purple dress and black boots. By swapping out a few accessories, it completely changed the look of the dress. I’m gaga over the look with the mustard scarf, but I’m dying to know which version of this outfit is YOUR favorite!

I laughed when you said what do you think of the mustard scarf with the purple dress – I love it, its bold and pops, but I would always chicken out of wearing it and keep sticking to the cream one as its safer and wouldn’t have people looking at me the same – You certainly got a good selection this month 🙂 I just wish they were in New Zealand 🙂
The Almost Their Height Teacher
Oh my goodness, your fix was awesome too!!!! I love that Dohlman blouse and the swing skirt (It’s great for fall, but, I’m with you, it had better be a pretty darn special occasion to get me to wear a skirt in January.) is darling. Thanks for sharing all your goodies. Can’t wait to see what we get next.
A Differentiated Kindergarten
My first Stitch Fix should be here tomorrow. I hope I get all of these!! Also, I read you’re a MSU alum! Me too! It’s always nice to see another Spartan in the blog world. Go Green!!
You got a great fix! I love that purple dress with the denim jacket & boots.
I am in love with several things from your fix. I will definitely be pinning them for my stylist. I love the 2 blouse, the cardigan, and the dress. I also LOVE your brown boots. Not sure, if I can pull them off in South Florida. Might have to try.
The Teacher’s Backpack
You got credit for me!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing! My second fix is on the way right now!
You look great in everything. It must be so much fun getting your Fix-It parcel!!! 🙂
I LOVE your Stitch Fix and you are too stinkin’ cute!!!!
I love your stitch fix post and your style! I am crazy about your brown boots, can you tell me the brand?
They are Enzo Angiolini. I bought them 2 years ago and I haven’t been been able to track them down in stores this year. (People ask about my brown boots often).
I know this is way late, but I just saw this post linked on Pinterest! What an awesome fix and I love the way you styled everything!! Just wanted to let you know! 🙂
Thank you so much for letting me know! It’s never too late to leave a kind comment 🙂
I just came here from Pinterest too. My first stitch fix arrives tomorrow and I’m excited! . . . I have the same long gold necklace (NY&Co maybe??). I love how it goes with everything! Nice but not too dressy for casual outfits.
Hi! I love the skirt and have one just like it from my last Fix. I was just wondering how it’s held up for you. How do you wash it?
Hi Simone, I have only worn the skirt once for a few hours and haven’t had to wash it yet. When that day comes, I will probably take it to the dry cleaner and let them handle it so they can press it and keep the pleats looking nice.
I would no recommend hand washing the Charissa pleated skirt. I followed the directions exactly and all of the pleats fell out and it shrunk weird. I asked if they will send a new one since I followed the directions. You would think if something says “hand wash. Hang dry” that is what you would have to do to maintain the item of clothing.
Oh no! I hope you get a replacement! Thanks for letting me know!
I got a white top that shrank terribly. When it came my daughter advised me that I’d probably want to wear it with a cami beneath. Now it serves the purpose of a cami–too tight to wear on top of anything! Lisa, were you successful in getting a replacement skirt?
Hi! I love reading all of your SF reviews! Would you mind sharing where you go the plum cardigan? I love it so much!!
That was a TJ Maxx find from at least 3 years ago. I wish I had more information for you!
