December Stitch Fix: cozy weather is here

It's Stitch Fix time again! I don't know about you, but I loooove online shopping! Like, seriously. This was one day's worth. It's just so easy and I don't even have to change out of my jammies.

My monthly Stitch Fix is definitely one of my favorites though. I waited an entire day to open it, just savoring the anticipation of what was inside. I had asked for cozy winter wear for date nights and holiday gatherings with friends and family. 

And the wait was so worth it.... ooh!

First up, the Wallace Zig Zag Border Infinity Scarf by Look by M. I loved this as soon as I touched it. The color was great, a neutral for mixing and matching. 

Then there was this gray Justin Patch Pocket Cardigan by Renee C. I loved the stitching and pocket details on this one.

I also received these dark wash Nolita Skinny Jeans by Mavi. They're super low rise and I'm just now jumping into skinny jeans, but we'll see. 

Here's an interesting piece, Stacy Metallic Coated Sweater by Pink Martini. To be fair, I did check that I wanted to be occasionally spontaneous with my choices and I'm digging gold/rose gold right now.

Finally, the fifth piece was this deep purple Breyson Pleated Tab-Sleeve Blouse by 41Hawthorn. I adored the color and the fabric instantly. 

Time to play dress up!  As I put on the scarf, I realized it was a little too chunky for my taste. I felt like I was being choked, no matter how I twisted it. Leaving it in a single loop was too long. This one's going back.

Next up, the gray sweater and new skinny jeans with a black cami I already had. I was prepared to hate the jeans, but I actually liked them! They looked good with my Tieks and will work well with boots too. Keeping the jeans.

The sweater, however, was too big and is going back.

On to the metallic sweater. It's literally a black sweater somehow coated with metallic gold outside. I almost didn't put it on because there was no way I was keeping it, but sometimes you take one for the team. Again, too big and just no. It's going back too.

Finally, I saved this one for last because I wanted it so bad. The weight of the fabric is great, just slightly sheer, and it has buttons so you can roll up the sleeves easily. Loved it and put it in the keep pile, but as I was editing pictures I changed my mind. It's just a little too big through the stomach and makes me look like I have no shape. Sent it back.

The final verdict? Kept the skinny jeans {$88} and applied my $20 styling fee toward them. Then I went in and adjusted my Stitch Fix settings to go down a size on top. My closet is a mix of mediums and larges and I was worried the clothes would run small/boutique size so I went with a large on my first two fixes. Since most of the items were too big last time too, I sized down to a medium. We'll see how next month's box goes. Hopefully everything isn't too small. ;) 

It wasn't a total scratch though. I super love these jeans. My hair was a hot mess after trying on all my fixes, but I dressed them down with my new Jamberry hoodie for running quick errands with my hubby.

Ready to try out your own Stitch Fix?  Schedule your first box now-- it's fun and your $20 fee goes toward anything you decide to keep. Can't wait to see what YOU get!
