It’s Stitch Fix day! Hooray!
This is my third maternity Fix by Stylist Jessica, and I am blown away. Stylist Jessica and I, we’re totally on the same page when it comes to my style. I really hope she does more than maternity Fixes, because I’m going to need her in my life when I give birth this spring. I only had a few requests for this box:
One, I needed something to wear for upcoming competitions. I’m the director of a high school color guard, and I need to look like it at contests. Being mistaken as a pregnant teenager would not be ideal.
Two, I wanted a black leather jacket similar to my latest pins.
Spoiler alert: Stylist Jessica delivered.
But, let’s get to it! At the time of these photos, I was slightly over 25 weeks pregnant with Baby No. 2.
Le Lis Marrit Maternity Dress – Small – $58
I can’t decide if this dress is trendy, or if I feel like a fourth grade teacher. Not that there aren’t fashionable teachers, of course. You know what I’m saying.
I asked specifically for a comfortable-yet-fashionable maternity dress, and this certainly fits the bill. It’s lightweight and stretchy so it will grow with me through World Finals in late April, but it also has sleeves in case this becomes a never-ending winter.
Did I mention it was 70 degrees on Saturday, and then we had an actual blizzard watch by Wednesday? You can never plan for spring in the Midwest.
I like the faux wrap detail, but unfortunately the waistline of the dress is hitting me at an awkward point on the bump (not sure that comes through in the photo). The dress also rides up a bit as I walk, which isn’t good for long competition days. Also, I would never wear heels to a contest while pregnant – that’s just asking for disaster – but Stylist Jessica suggested booties, so here I am.
Loveappella Maternity Agnes Lace Sleeve Maternity Knit Top – Small – $54
Stitch Fix knows me. I buy a lot of 3/4 sleeve tops, and they prey on that. Lucky for me, I just wasn’t wow’ed by this Loveappella top. It’s nothing special (unless you love lace), and I would rather spend the $54 this top cost on something I could wear after I give birth.
Also, this photo is way blown out because my photography skills are sub-par (they’re also all blurry, which I don’t understand). The top is actually a really light gray with white lace sleeves and detailing near the shoulders.

Loveappella Maternity Hartley Maternity Dress – Small – $68
This dress makes me look really pregnant.
Stylist Jessica suggested leggings and booties for this dress, but I think the styling is a little much. With my blindingly white bare legs and flats, I think it would make more sense. The dress is a little too long for me (I am only 5’3″), and while I usually adore a horizontal stripe… this one isn’t helping me much.
Am I really that large already?!
Skies are Blue Terese Quilted Faux Leather Jacket – Medium – $88
Ask and you shall receive. Hallelujah!
I’m just not a jean jacket girl, and I rarely wear cardigans. And since I got rid of half of my closet (including almost all of my jean jackets and cardigans since they don’t spark joy for me), I was in need of a lightweight spring/fall jacket that I could wear with almost everything.
This is it. Welcome to my closet, edgy leather jacket.
FFC New York Brooke Two-Toned Flats – Size 7 – $39
STITCH FIX HAS SHOES, PEOPLE.
TAKE ALL MY MONEY.
Oh, I want to keep these… the price is right and they’re so pretty… but my wide feet just don’t like them. So, back they go.
BUT SEND ME MORE SHOES!
There you have it! The dresses didn’t quite work for what I needed, but I did score a great faux leather jacket. What do you think? Would you have kept the same thing? (using the “One Item Rule” of course!)
This may be my last Stitch Fix for awhile, simply because I don’t really need any more maternity clothes for my last three months of pregnancy and there’s no way I can wear regular clothes right now. We’ll see what happens! But, for now, check out all of my previous 27 Fixes HERE.
