How a Busy Mom Buys Clothes

This is NOT a sponsored post. I am not getting paid to write this.  I just really liked this company and I thought you might too! 

Before kids, clothes shopping used to be so much fun for me.  I’d spend the day going from store to store, checking out the latest fashions.  I’d pick out stuff for work, play, nighttime looks, and daytime looks.

Then I had kids.

I don’t know about you, but shopping has lost it’s luster a bit and become more of a chore.  Taking kids shopping with you is a joke.  I spend way more time corralling kids and keeping them from destroying the entire store, than finding clothes for me.

When I do get a break away and can go shopping alone, I always feel like I’m in a rush and get exhausted going from store to store looking for great stuff.  I think it’s because it’s not all that fun to shop when you only wear yoga pants and jeans.

So, when I heard of Stitch Fix, which is an online personal shopping experience, I decided to give it a try.

Here’s how it works.

I told them that I’m a Mom who spends her days at the park and library.  I asked for some classic pieces for fall that I can pair with jeans or leggings.  My personal stylist took it from there and picked out five pieces just for me.

I found my Stitch Fix box on my doorstep a few days ago, and had a great time trying on all the new items in the comfort of my own home.  I loved that I could go shopping in my closet and put together outfits that I will really wear.

Here’s what I got in my first Fix.


First Item: GLAM Naarah Striped 3/4 Sleeved Shirt ($58)

This shirt is totally my style, so much so that I have a few very similar shirts in my closet already.  My stylist suggested pairing it with jeans, flats, and a cardigan.  She also suggested a skirt with flats.


Item Two: Kut From the Kloth, Danny 5- Pocket Knit Pants ($78)

These black pants are super tight and very long on me.  My stylist suggested wearing them with sandals, but I put them on with my boots because of the length.  I didn’t want to wear them with my long tunics because they are pants and not leggings.  In the end, I’m not sure how to wear these.  I guess they are a bit out of my comfort zone.  I’d end up wearing them as leggings, and I don’t need a $78 pair of leggings.


Item three: 41Hawthorn Henrietta Houndstooth Scarf ($38)

Item four: 41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top ($48)

I like this scarf a lot, it’s super warm and can be worn with a ton of stuff and in many different ways.

This black top is amazing!  I never would have picked this shirt out on my own, and I’m so grateful that my stylist sent it to me.  I think it will be great for a date night with my hubby.


Item five: Tulle Elina Zig-Zag Woven Coat ($88)

I was totally surprised to see a coat in the collection!  It’s  super cute and looks great with dresses or jeans.  It is classic, so it will be in style for a long time.


So, you tell me, what should I keep?

Overall, I loved my first Stitch Fix experience.  I don’t think I’ll be doing it every month, but I’ll do it again for sure!  The clothing was great quality and it was super fun!  My stylist nailed my style and even pushed me out of my comfort zone a bit.
