This month, I asked my Stitch Fix stylist Caitlyn for clothes that I can layer. The temperature fluctuates quite a bit here in the winter, so I find myself layering up in the morning, and down to a t-shirt by the afternoon. I’m calling this fix “Mom Casual Layers”.

My “why” for Stitch Fix is that I’m somewhat of a shopaholic. A lot of people join because they hate shopping for clothes, and that’s a fantastic reason. In my case, I love buying new clothes, but after I’ve worn them a couple of times they usually get shoved in the back of my closet. This is because I love buying clothes so much, that I’m not picky enough with style and quality. Stitch Fix forces me to schedule my shopping experience, and I get clothes that are a much higher quality than the pieces I would shop for in-store.
“Mom Casual” Layers Fix
Bethany Skinny Jean
What I like about the Bethany Skinny Jean is that they don’t look or feel super skinny. They have the high-cut stretchy top, with no pesky button. You can’t tell they’re mom jeans, but they totally are. They’re deceptive mom jeans. They’re super soft, and could be worn every day without a button digging into your stomach. Unfortunately they were just a tad bit too long. At 5’4″, I’m somewhere between petite and regular sizes, so length is always an issue for me. I decided to return these.
Ines Knit Top
The Ines Knit Top is super soft and flowy, just like I asked for. It’s definitely “mom casual”. It looked really cute with the Bethany Skinny Jean, with makes it the perfect outfit on its own for warmer spring weather. If you look really close, you can see that it’s light pink with a little white mixed in. This is pretty typical for being a knit top, and I loved it! I already have a very similar shirt, which tells you how well my stylist understands what I’m looking for. I decided to return this.
I styled the top with the Kendra Scott Saylor Necklace that came in one of my Rocksbox sets last year. I get bored of my jewelry quickly, so I pay $19 a month to get unlimited jewelry rental from Rocksbox. They send me 3 pieces at a time, in a similar fashion as Stitch Fix, except they’re rentals that you can wear for as long as you want. They’re even insured, so you don’t have to pay for it if it breaks when you’re wearing it. Occasionally I purchase a necklace from a set that I absolutely love. You can find out more information about Rocksbox here.
Pola Pocket Knit Top
My style card showed the Pola Pocket Knit Top styled with an army green jacket, which I plan on acquiring in the near future, because it looked super cute on the card. This top is super soft and stretchy and the solid color makes it super flattering in all the right places. I do have a similar top with roses instead of the solid blue, so you can tell this is totally my style. I decided to keep this awesome shirt!
Sonole Open Cardigan
The Sonole Open Cardigan is an epic layering piece. It’s super soft, and thicker than it looks. It’s also the perfect length for both leggings and jeans, making it possible to wear with everything. I was really torn about this cardigan. I have a very similar beige cardigan that I love and layered perfectly with the other items I kept in this fix, so ultimately I decided to return this cardigan. I’m sure I’m going to regret it, though!
Madelene Raglan Roll Sleeve Knit Top
The Madelene Raglan Roll Sleeve Knit Top might be the longest name ever for a shirt. This was my absolutely favorite piece from my fix. The brown accents are super cute, and the baseball sleeves are really flattering. It’s the perfect length for leggings and boots. I didn’t take this outfit off after I tried everything on. I just had to wear it! Obviously, I decided to keep this top.
I styled this with a piece from my current Rocksbox set, the Perry Street Carine Necklace. It’s just the right amount of “chunky”.
I decided to keep 2/5 items from this box, but I really could have kept it all if I wasn’t being super picky. My stylist Caitlyn is a serious rockstar. I’m making sure to request her every fix!
All of the pieces of jewelry I wore in these photos are from Rocksbox jewelry rental. The bracelet from my current set is below. I’m currently renting it and will be sending it back in a few days. The other items are ones that I loved so much, I bought them after renting for a bit.
