Yay! My Stitch Fix came in two days earlier than I anticipated! :) Let’s dive in shall we?

Renee C Addae Fit & Flare Dress in cobalt: Wow how blue this dress is! I love the color, and it’s great that my stylist would send it knowing I’d love the color, but I already have a plethora of blue/navy dresses in my wardrobe. I can’t neglect another! This one shall be returned.

Skies Are Blue Krishna Cutout Detail Top in black: Oh man, it’s happened – Nancy, my ever trusty stylist, sent me a Skies Are Blue top that I actually really really like! I’ve had issues with the brand in previous boxes (always a bit big and/or unshapely) but there’s something different about this top that just worked. Maybe it was the lighter material? The cute and subtle cutout detail just under the clavicle? The fun print in classic colors? Who knows! I love it and it’s being kept.

Look by M Harrison Striped Infinity Scarf in red: My wardrobe lacks infinity scarves and I’m looking to fix that, though I was surprised to find this in my box at this time of year. It’s got 4th of July written all over it, which would be fun to wear on that day. But because it looks so much like the American flag, I just don’t imagine myself wearing it at any other time, and scarves  are not a part of my summer outfit plans. This one shall be returned.

Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short in blue: These chino shorts look so nice in the box and are a winner from a practical standpoint: they’re a good length for summer and work, they’re a nice light color, and they’re not heavy denim. But they seem exceptionally baggy around the hip area and the pockets flare out even when standing straight up. The waistband fits just right so I’m not sure why there would be so much extra fabric, but there you are. I’m not sure about this one – should I keep or let it go?

Per Nancy’s suggestion, I wore this with my tan wedges, gold bangle, and the Dear John chino shorts, which actually made them look decent (if only because the tank hid the baggy parts). As I am a very short gal I’ll have to be real careful who I stand next to and when I bend over, because the top does come dangerously low. But it’s awesome and I’m keeping it!

So now comes the decision making part, which I feel I’ve already almost completed. Two items are being returned, and two items are being kept. But what about them shorts?? I’d love to hear your comments and feedback on any and or all things, such as what other pieces of clothing I could throw together with these items to make some more awesome outfits. Let’s hear them, ladies and gentlemen! :)
