I loved my first maternity Stitch Fix so much, that I’m surprised that I waited so long to get another one. Mostly I waited because, one I was in denial that I needed maternity clothes (I figured I would keep buying regular stuff and just going up a size). Two I lost track of time, first we were on vacation and then it was the holidays and I just didn’t have time for all that and three I have an awesome friend who gave me a ton of maternity clothes. And while hand-me-downs are awesome there is something to be said about having maternity clothes that are your own and that were picked out just for you. So it was time for a second trimester stitch fix.
For this fix I requested colorful leggings and asked for no dresses. I also linked to my maternity style pinterest account, something I didn’t do last time since I hadn’t announced my pregnancy when I ordered my first maternity stitch fix. Stitch Fix came through matching up some of my requests. All photos were taken at 26 weeks pregnant and I apologize for the mirror selfies, it was a really hard week for my family and when my stitch fix arrived my heart just wasn’t in fashion photo shoot mode.
Here’s What I Got in My Second Trimester Stitch Fix.
Le Lis Rokeby Open Jacket (pictured with maternity stitch fix cami)
This jacket is not maternity which I really liked. I have this aversion to buying maternity stuff that I won’t be able to wear later. I loved the navy and white color and the stylist Kristin says that the window pane print is “so on-trend”. I actually really liked this jacket and it was hard to part with it. But I did because it’s a bit fancier than something I would wear every day and after the baby I’m not sure what I will be doing work-wise, so it didn’t seem logical to keep it, even though I loved it.
Stitch Fix 3 Pack Maternity Cami
I loved that this 3 pack meant that I actually got more than the usual 5 pieces in my fix, even if technically they are all the same piece just in different colors. I’m a sucker for basics, especially neutral colored ones, so I instantly knew these were a keeper. They are great for layering or providing shape to an outfit since these are more form-fitting than most maternity clothes. I like that i can wear them with my non-maternity sweaters, cardigans and button-up tops. If you are doing a maternity stitch fix definitely request these.
Pixley Heido Zipper Cardigan
I really wanted to like this cardigan. It is grey which is my favorite color and it was heavy and cozy which is perfect because I refuse to buy a maternity jacket. However I felt the like the collar was a little too big and I sort of wished it was hooded instead of a collar. I liked that this piece was not maternity but still fit even when fully zipped.
Margaret M Emer Printed Straight Leg Pant
Easily my favorite piece in this fix, these pants made me smile when it really felt impossible to smile and they got me to work on my first day back after losing Bailey. These pants were my hero. When I requested colored leggings, these were the exact ones I had in mind, since I had seen them in another bloggers fix. They are not maternity but the waste is a stretchy band so no buttons or zippers and it’s really hard to tell if these are leggings or pants. I love them. They are fun for maternity and they will be great for a night out after the baby is born. I actually paired these with a sparkly top thinking I might wear this if John and I get out for dinner one night.
Tart Maternity Anabella Maternity Knit Top
I generally liked this top and it fit really well but I just wasn’t in love with it, which was not the shirts fault. It was comfortable and flattering but I wasn’t really sure where i would wear it because it was a little bit nicer than what I would wear around the house but also a little too casual for work.
I wasn’t in the best place when this fix arrived but it still made me really happy, so a few days later I ordered another fix, and I can’t wait for it to arrive.
