Spring Stitch Fix Review: 3 Keepers

In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

Links to Stitch Fix and outfit details throughout this post are affiliate.

It’s been forever since I’ve shared a style post on the blog (Pumps & Iron should just be Pumping Iron at this point) so I thought it’d be fun to show you guys a few pieces from my two most recent Stitch Fix deliveries. I get a fix every other month so this spring Stitch Fix review is of keepers from April and June.

I mentioned in past posts that I increased my price ranges in my Stitch Fix profile. The great thing about that is I’m getting high quality pieces from brands I know and love. The downside is that I typically can only afford to keep one or two items from each fix. That’s not really a downside though as I have more of a quality-over-quantity attitude about my wardrobe—a necessity when you share a closet with your boyfriend in a small city apartment.

Spring Stitch Fix Review

The Charlie High Rise Skinny Jean by Joe’s Jeans

In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

OUTFIT DETAILS | Hummingbird bodysuit via Stitch Fix // Urban Outfitters sunglasses // Joe’s Jeans via Stitch Fix (also available in a cropped version) // Street Level bag via Stitch Fix // Steve Madden strappy heels

I usually get designer jeans from Nordstrom Rack (it’s so hard to justify paying full-price when you can always find them on sale!), but when I tried these on from my April fix delivery, it was one of those don’t-care-what-the-price-tag-says-I-need-these moments. They’re just so comfortable! And ripped! And actually long enough for me! Worth the $150 because I wear them at least twice a week.

High Rise Button-Up White Jeans by Pistola

OUTFIT DETAILS | MODA International blouse — super old, but Revolve has a ton of adorable floral blouses (one of each, please) // Pistola jeans via Stitch Fix // Kork-Ease heels — old, but this pair is cute, too!

White jeans have a lifespan of about one summer with me (note to self: stop wearing them to The Chicken Box). And true to form, these white jeans from two summers ago are now stained and ready to be retired. These new white jeans have a cute frayed hem and a button fly which is a super cute detail if paired with a cropped top or bodysuit. This is my second pair of Pistola jeans from Stitch Fix now and I’m a big fan of the brand. More affordable than other designers (around $80) and have a lot of stretch to them. In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

OUTFIT DETAILS | Pistola jeans via Stitch Fix // adidas sneakers // a shirt I stole from Joe (haha)

White jeans are great for dressing up and down. I like wearing them with longer shirts like this plaid one I stole from Joe’s side of the closet because then when I inevitably sit down on dirty benches or the grass I have a layer of protection over my white pants. 😉

Ruffle Bodysuit by Hummingbird

In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

I’m obsessed with this bodysuit and the best part? Under $30! It’d look so cute with high waist shorts, a maxi skirt or jeans. Because the ruffled part is fairly long, I don’t have to wear a bra with it which is the real standout feature—anyone else thing strapless bras are the devil’s handiwork? Can’t. Stand. Them.

If you like these occasional style posts, let me know! I honestly don’t shop frequently enough anymore to do these all the time (unless you guys are into seeing me in the same shirt and jeans every day haha), but I’d be down to get my fake model on every other week or so.

I highly doubt the dads of America are spending their Sunday reading a Stitch Fix post on Pumps & Iron, but if any are: Happy Father’s Day! 🙂

Anyone have fun plans for Memorial Day? I’m heading home to the Vineyard tomorrow and can’t wait! The past couple summers, Joe and I have had so many weddings that I haven’t been able to spend as much time on the island as I’d like. This summer we have none (say whaaaaa?!) so I plan to get home as many weekends as possible. Fingers crossed for sunny weather and lots of time away from the computer, but with Monday looking a little rainy, I thought I’d roundup some Memorial Day sales going on to ease your online shopping. These are all good now through Monday night. And real quick before we get to those …

Save Even More with Ebates

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend signing up for Ebates. When you shop certain sites online (a TON of sites are included in this) you get cash back on your purchases. Sometimes it’s minimal (like 1%) but sometimes you can get 10%+ cash back on stuff you’d be buying anyway. I did all my Christmas shopping online this year and got over $200 cash back—YASS. I recommend installing their toolbar button on your browser after you sign up. That way you don’t have to go to Ebates first and click to the site from there. You just go to the site you want to shop and if there’s an Ebates deal available, it’ll pop up in the corner. So much more convenient! Sign up here.

Memorial Day Sales to Shop

  • 20-60% off at Bandier | The code MEMORIAL20 gets you 20% off select full-price items and 60% off markdowns—yes, please! The above collage is of some of my favorites. You can shop individual pieces with the links directly below it or browse the whole sale here. Ebates users get an additional 1.5% cash back. 
  • 30% off Orders over $50 at Almondon | I discovered Almondon through the Yoga By Candace Mantra Box and only have one top from them (so far) but wear it all the time! It’s this high-neck white shirt that ties in the back. Their sports bras look adorable, too. Use code 30MEM17 at checkout.
  • 15% off New Balance | New Balance gear is hit-or-miss with me, but I can not recommend their Newbury leggings high enough. These are among the most flattering, comfortable leggings I own. Ebates users get an additional 5% cash back.

  • 30% off Gilt City | Use the code WKND30. I like checking Gilt City from time to time to see if any local fitness studios are offering sales. I’m hoping Exhale does one soon—I love their outdoor yoga classes in the summer! Ebates users get an additional 3% cash back.

Enjoy your weekend!

Style Haul: Saving on my Latest Wardrobe Additions (+Giveaway!)

This post is sponsored by thredUP. All opinions are–as always!–my own. I appreciate your support of the brands that make this blog possible.

It’s crazy how much our priorities shift as we grow older. Not just with how we spend our time, but in how we choose to spend our money. In my teens and early twenties, every spare dollar I had went to clothes. I was obsessed with shopping and definitely had a “more is more” mentality about adding to my wardrobe. That’s why I named my blog Pumps & Iron in the first place–a play off pumping iron and pumps, my favorite type of shoe at the time (LOL I literally wear sneakers 24/7 now). I was determined to be a fashion (and fitness) blogger but ironically, as soon as I purchased my domain name, my spending priorities began to shift.

Nowadays, I’d much rather splurge on healthy food and workout classes than clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I still love fashion, but I just can no longer justify buying things at retail cost. There are a few exceptions to that, but for the most part, when I do shop, I stick to sales and consignment stores like thredUP.

thredUP is the largest online resale store that buys and sells high-quality secondhand fashion for women and kids. They have on trend, like-new fashion from name brands and designers for up to 90% off, and everything you order arrives in a cute polkadot box, neatly folded and tagged. Their selection is huge with thousands of items being added everyday, so I’d recommend searching by brand when shopping the site. Once you type in the name of your favorite designer, you can then filter by size, color, price and style to find what you want. I always have to mentally prepare to really go digging when I shop at brick-and-mortar consignment shops so I love the ease of these online filters.

Over the last year, thredUP has actually become my go-to for Lululemon gear. I really do love their stuff, but I just can’t bring myself to pay full price for it when, let’s be real, I don’t need any more workout clothing. Every so often I’ll go to thredUP and see if they have any cute Lulu gear in my size and so far I’ve scored two tanks I wear all the time, a hoodie I’m obsessed with, and most recently these awesome print leggings. I got them for $64.99 (down from $118 retail) and they’re in like-new condition–seriously can’t even tell someone else owned them!

thredUP inspects each item it receives by hand to ensure all clothing is in like-new condition, and some pieces even are brand new. The J.Crew muscle tank I’m wearing was $15.99 (down from $50) and still had the original tag on it. Score! I love the pocket detail and it can be knotted to pair with high-waisted bottoms or worn as-is with jeans.

I also scored a Sam Edelman wool coat for $48.99 (down from $143) which is going to come in handy given the freezing temperatures here in Boston. I love the faux leather details on the jacket because it makes it easier to dress both up and down. I can layer a hoodie under it when walking to teach at the studio or take a workout class or wear it with a dressier outfit.

The last of the four items I got in my latest thredUP haul was this Mink Pink crop top for $9.99 (down from $30). I love the pattern and metallic details. I’m pairing it below with high waisted dress pants and I’m sure it’ll be a go-to this summer as well.

In total, I saved $201.04 buying the four items on thredUP instead of retail. Woop! That’s like seven group fitness classes or two salads at Whole Foods (LOL but not LOL because it’s too close to the truth #WholePaycheck). And get excited because you all are about to save big, too …
