Stitch Fix #1 (Maternity Style)

I finally decided to take the plunge. After 3 years of seeing others post about their love for Stitch Fix (affiliate link) I filled out my style profile, crossed my fingers, and hoped for the best.

Going into this I had really low expectations and didn’t think I would be super happy when my box arrived with my clothes. I am super picky over what I wear, especially right now. Being pregnant and parenting a 4 and 2 year old I want to be comfortable all the time. This generally means wearing baggy shirts and leggings. My poor husband. I think the majority of our marriage he has seen me in either pajamas or workout clothes. I am really wanting to be more stylish and somewhat put together, but the struggle to stay in my lululemon studio pants is REAL!

If you are unfamiliar with Stitch Fix here is how it works…

1. Start by filling out your style profile – you will answer questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes/dislikes.

2. Order your first fix! Your card will be charged a $20 styling fee but, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20. You will receive 5 items [made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags, whatever you prefer].

3. When your fix arrives you have 3 business days to decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. You will be given a postage paid envelope to mail back any items you do not wish to purchase. If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix.

Stitch Fix is not a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or every two weeks. Right now I have mine scheduled for every 3 months.

When I signed up for my first fix I made sure to note that I didn’t really need/want any pants but I was looking for tops and possibly a dress that I could wear now and after the baby the was born. I also wasn’t looking for any “maternity” items.

I am not a fan of the tops with the side elastic. My stylist totally delivered and I really liked everything she sent. On a side note Stitch Fix does offer maternity specific clothing if that is something you are interested in. I also really enjoyed the style card with outfit ideas that was included in my box as well as being able to try on these items with clothes I already own.

For reference I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with baby #3. I had to look up on a due date calculator how far along I am. That is the difference between baby #1 and baby #3. I knew exactly how many weeks plus day I was with my first pregnancy. With this baby I know I will be in the hospital ready to push thinking to myself “Is it really time to do this?”

1. BRIXON IVY Steph Knit Dress – Small – $58 – Kept

This dress would NEVER be something I would pick out for myself but it is super comfortable, the length and neckline is modest, and I can move in it.

2. Loveappella Wilsen Contrast Sleeve Knit Top – Small – $48 – Kept

This top was so cute on. Again, I wouldnt have picked it out because of the patterned sleeves but I loved it.

3. 41Hawthorn Queensland Dolamn Jersey Top – Small – $48 – Kept

Loved, loved, loved this top. It is perfect for my growing baby bump and offers lots of coverage and I know it will be so flattering after the baby is born. This was Josh’s favorite item.

4. Moon and Sky Farine Crochet Detail Knit Top – Small – $48 – Kept

I love tops like this and haven’t had any like this in my closet for quite some time. After Caden was born my clothes that I wore pre-preganacy didn’t fit like I was used so I sadly donated a few favorites that reminded me of this top and the next. I was excited to see two tops that were loose and longer that would work for pregnancy and afterwards.

You can see my lovely varicose veins in my right leg if you look closely. Looking forward to getting these treated again after the baby is born.

5. Moon and Sky Valri Crochet Detail Knit Top – Small – $54 – Kept

This is probably my favorite item I was sent. It is so soft, extra long, and I really like the detailing on the front of the shirt.

There you have it friends. My first ever Stitch Fix. Most of these items I would have never picked out for myself but I am super happy and pleasantly surprised with what was sent. Do you Stitch Fix?

Special thanks to Josh for taking all these pictures! We set a record and got all these done in 10 minutes, and that was with outfit changes :).

Linking up with Crazy Together to share my fix.


What’s Inside My Gym Bag + Thirty-One Gifts Online Party

Today I have a super fun post to share with you! All about what is inside my gym bag! Plus an opportunity to go shopping online for your own gym bag and many more ways to organize your home and life!

 Thirty-One Gifts All Pro Tote

Before I share with you whats inside my gym bag let me talk for a little bit about my own gym bag. Being a personal trainer, yoga instructor, and mom I like to have enough room to carry all my most essential items. That can add up to carting around lots and lots of stuff. I was so happy when my friend and Thirty-One Gifts consultant Cassie introduced me to the All Pro Tote.

Ladies this bag is amazing! It can literally hold all of my stuff! Yoga mat, water bottle, gym items, you name it and it holds, and to top it off the bag is just super cute! One thing I really like about this bag is that there is a separate storage area from the main compartment that can be used for your dirty clothes or sweaty shoes once your workout is over.

Thirty-One All Pro Tote Wet Bag & Shoe Storage

This tote would also make an excellent pool bag for all your summer time fun because you can use the front storage area for a towel instead of a yoga mat if you choose. Lots of options for this bag, plus it comes in several color options!

Because I love this bag so much after I purchased it I decided to host an online Thirty-One Gifts shopping party. If you like organizing your home and life you have to check out their online catalog. This month you can get the All Pro Tote for only $25 if you spend $35. Not a bad deal at all. This tote normally runs $80 so this is a great deal because you can get the tote and another fun and useful item for only $60.


I am also really loving this Pack N’ Pull Caddy to help organize my car, the City Weekender for a possible hospital bag when baby girl is born, and a fun color Dual Pro Strap for my All Pro Tote. Be sure to check out these and many other great products!

Share this great find with your family and friends! This bag would work great for many different purposes!

Ok so now that you know how to order your own amazing gym bag, it is time to share with you what is inside my own gym bag. Now just so you know I also keep extra diapers and wipes in my gym bag for Caden when we go to the gym together.

What's Inside My Gym Bag

  • Old Navy Flip Flops: I keep a pair in my gym bag in case I decide to shower at the gym. My gym is super clean but I still would rather wear flip flops on my feet in and out of the showers.
  • Health Warrior Chia Bars Coconut: I love, love, love these bars! I can’t say enough good things about them. They are great for a quick after workout snack and Caden loves them too.
  • Alba Botanica Hawaiian Leave In Conditioning Mist & Alba Botanica Kukui Nut Organic Hawaiian Body Oil: I recently have become hooked on this brand. I love that they contain no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or artificial colors.
  • Gymboss Interval Timer and Stopwatch: I use this timer for my own workouts and also when I train clients. It just makes interval training so much easier because I don’t have to pay attention to the clock. This means I can work harder and keep my focus during my workouts.
  • No-Frizz Pocket Comb: Leaving a comb in my gym bag is a must because after a workout my hair is a mess.
  • CEP Women’s Progressive Compression Socks: Because of my varicose veins these are my go to socks for workouts.
  • Hair Ties & Headbands (Not Pictured): I always keep extra hair ties in my bag and just found my new favorite headbands from the shop JumpingJack on Etsy.
  • Thai Crystal Deodorant Mist: Great natural deodorant that keeps away the stink with about 5-6 sprays under each arm.
  • Starbucks Cold Drink Tumbler: I love these tumblers. I break them at least every few months but I can’t stop buying them. I pretty much only go into Starbucks to buy them because I am not a coffee drinker. I have used other water bottles but this by far my favorite. Plus it is really easy to clean.
  • Motorola MOTOACTV with Motorola Heart Rate Monitor Chest Strap: This watch tracks your steps, is an MP3 player, and a heart rate monitor all in one. It also measures your distance and route on your runs, hikes, or walks. While I love this heart rate monitor there have been several times that I have forgotten to charge it so that is always a bummer when I realize I can’t use it to track my workout.

We typically go to the gym between 3-5 days a week so I find it is helpful to keep this bag ready to go. In addition to what I mentioned above I also bring a change of clothes in my bag so I can leave the gym clean. I didn’t really understand the value of a hot shower until I became a mom. I try to take advantage of being able to shower after my workouts while Caden is being watched in the child activity center after most of my workouts.

I don’t have to bring shampoo, soap, or towels because our gym provides them for us. I love that I don’t have remember to bring those things because there is a good chance I would forget. I also bring Caden a drink and snack for afterwards.

My ideal time to workout is between 8am and 10am. If I can get to the gym anytime between those times I am feeling pretty good about myself. I try to switch up my workouts each week so I don’t get bored. This may mean I take a group fitness or yoga class, plan my own workout, or swim laps.

Don’t forget to check out my online party with Thirty-One Gifts and order your own All Pro Tote!
