Fall Outfits

Fall is definitely here and I’m full embracing the colors and fabrics.  I do feel that I can better use my budget by picking things out myself and finding good deals.  Stitch Fix has high prices if you’re not keeping all 5 items and I just haven’t been happy with the picks lately.  I’m also not loving any of the chosen items for the upcoming Golden Tote and think I’ll skip it.

I Love Your Dress” Dress from Modcloth 

I Love Your Dress from Modcloth

Plum and mustard is my favorite fall combo of colors.  The dress is a soft knit and I’ve seen a lot of people get this dress from Stitch Fix.  Since I wasn’t getting what I asked for I just went directly through ModCloth.

Dress from Target

target dress

Target has some really cute fall stuff right now.  I found this dress along with a few sweaters that I picked up last week.  I paired this with old grey boots and the faux leather jacket I got from my last stitch fix.

Boho Top from Target

I also picked up this rust colored bohemian style top from Target.  Very soft and flowy.

Old Navy Cap Sleeve Sheath Dress

Again, loving the combo with mustard in the fall.  This dress is quite flattering and I got it for only $10 with sales and rewards!

ModCloth – Pretty Package Dress in Spanish Tile

ModCloth Pretty Package Dress

Love the colors of this one too.  The cowl neck top is flattering for a pear shaped body.

Loft Dress

Loft burgundy dress

This is one of my favorite new fall dresses.  It’s a silk fabric and the color is so rich.  Paired with a cardigan from Loft.

Loft Orange Skirt

Loft Orange Skirt

The color of this is much nicer in person than on the website.  It’s a deep orange.  The silky fabric is nice and flowy and I paired it with a knit military style jacket from Old Navy.

Old Navy Sweater

This is an old navy sweater, paired with an older scarf I got from a PopSugar Must Have box, a watch from Charming Charlie, and the flats are Crocs.

Loft Silk Dress

LOVE this dress.  The fabric, the pattern, everything.  I can see me wearing it in winter with black tights.

Loft Dress

This dress is fun for work and felt very office appropriate.  Looks a little shorter here than it felt on.

Work Capris and a red sweater

Kohls Capris

I got these curvy Capris from Elle at Kohls last year and was so happy to find curvy fit pants that were cute.  I paired them with this red sweater from Banana Republic.

Rocking Shoes from DSW

Shoes from DSW

The best part of this outfit is the shoes.  They are a nice low heel and I love the details.  The jacket is older and the red shell is from Golden Tote as a surprise item.  Jeans from Old Navy.  I’m loving the new curvy skinny jeans, after I washed these they were a bit more fitted.

Stitch Fix September 2015

My September stitch fix arrived yesterday, and once again I’m disappointed.  Here was the note to my stylist.

Stitch Fix September 2015

Annnnd here’s what I got:

Stitch Fix September 2015

I see some color, but mostly dull grey and drab olive.  And what is that thing on the bottom, a blanket??

RD Style – lana Twisted Seam Sweater $68

 

Stitch Fix September 2015

Stitch Fix September 2015

Dull, boxy fit and just sort of sticks out at my mid-section.

Return.

41Hawthorn – Lisbon Stud Detail Blouse $58

Stitch Fix September 2015 Stitch Fix September 2015

Yes it’s an olive color, but the fabric feels itchy and artificial and I didn’t really ask for a blouse.  I don’t see myself wearing this because of the itchy fabric.

Returned

Market and Spruce – Alexi Dress $74

Stitch Fix September 2015 Stitch Fix September 2015

The color and fabric are nice, and that’s all it has going for it.  The waist was loose and big and the arm holes were uneven and way too big.  My bra was completely showing on one side.

Returned.

Kut From the Kloth – Michael Faux Leather Jacket $78

Stitch Fix September 2015 Stitch Fix September 2015 Stitch Fix September 2015

The color is nice, but I already have a ton of faux leather jackets in a bunch of colors.  Also the arms are really loose and long on this one and my husband said it looked to big on me.  I’m undecided only because this is the ONLY item I’d even consider keeping and if I don’t keep anything I’m out $20 just for the privilege of trying on a bunch of stuff that doesn’t work for me.

Undecided.

RD Style – Laverne Poncho Cardigan $68

Stitch Fix September 2015
Are you kidding me?
Stitch Fix September 2015
Seriously?????

I don’t recall asking for a blanket, nor does this look like anything on my pinterest page.  I posted a bunch of cute fitted fall outfits and she sends me a blanket with arm holes??  The fabric is scratchy and I look like I am a giant old lady.  This would never in a million years work with my shape.  Honestly, the worst thing they’ve ever sent me.

RETURNED.

Overall Impressions

Overall I think this was a bad fix.  I didn’t get the skinny jeans I requested, there was only one dress, no skirts, and a serious lack of color aside from the wearable blanket.  I think Lindsay did a pretty good job as my stylist, but I kept requesting her later and they kept telling me she was on vacation and this stylist definitely does not get me.  I guess I’m done with Stitch Fix again.

 

Spring Outfits

Here’s a few pics of what I’ve been wearing this spring.

Old Navy Dress

I think they sold out of this, but I got this striped tank dress from Old Navy in the early spring.  I paired it with a blue cardigan from Banana Republic.

Moto Style Jacket and Metallic Ballet Flats

Peach Sweater

Black and White Part 2

black and whiteI found these curvy capris at Kohls and was so happy!  Cute patterned pants that fit me, very rare.  The top is from Target and the necklace an old stitch fix.

Golden Tote top

Anthropologie Dress

blue dressFor work I paired this with an off white linen/denim jacket.  I love this dress and the fit is right on for me.

Falling for Boden plus work outfits

I wore my patterned sweater and squirrel dress last week.  I am completely enamored with Boden and love both pieces.

Boden patterned sweater
Soldiers!

I paired the Boden pattern sweater with a short sleeve white button up, red jeans I got from stitch fix, and some black boots.  I liked the way the white collar shirt contrasted underneath.  Boden is having a sale right now for 25% off everything, and I highly recommend this sweater.  It’s so soft and no wool!

Boden Hartland Dress
squirrels!

I was stopped by a stranger in Charming Charlies who told me she loved my dress and thought it was vintage.  The Hartland Dress from Boden is made from a corduroy fabric that is so soft and I love the pattern.

Leather Jacket Golden Tote
I feel like a bad a$$!

I got this jacket in my October Golden Tote and I love the feel of it and all of the details.  The faux leather is soft and it has a cute buckle at the neck.  I also like that it has a hood.  It’s currently available in the November $149 tote and also the boutique for $75.

Professional Look

Finally, I had to give part of a keynote speech last week and decided to dress a little more professionally for work.  I got the skirt at Ann Taylor Loft, and was happy with the fit and comfort.  It’s nice and stretchy and didn’t feel restraining like some pencil skirts do.  I paired it with an older cardigan from banana republic and a black and white blouse.

September Outfits

This is a great weekend to do some online shopping.  All of my favorite sites are having big sales.  (Boden 20% off everything and Loft 40% off everything.)

Here are some of the things I’ve been wearing this month.

Golden Tote Swing Dress
Golden Tote Swing Dress without a jacket

I love this swing dress from Golden Tote just as much as the white one with black stripes.  For work I paired it with these nude sandals and a long necklace then wore a jacket on top when I was in the air conditioning.

Loft Scuba Flare Skirt
Flare Skirt from Loft

I love this new skirt I got from Loft.  The fit is flattering for my body type so I bought it in two colors.  The blouse is sooo soft and my favorite mustard color.  The boots are new and I bought them specifically to wear with fall skirts and dresses.

Leather Look
Leather Look from London

I got this blue top from Dorothy Perkins in London and saw the outfit idea on a mannequin there.  I knew I had the leather jacket and boots so just pulled the look together when I got home.  (I can’t find the top online, but they do have a website.)

Coral Sweater and Blue Blouse

I saw an outfit similar to this on the Stitch Fix blog (see below) and thought I’d try to reproduce it with a top I got from Stitch Fix and a coral sweater from Old Navy.
