As most of you know by now, my life underwent a pretty monumental change a couple weeks ago. My husband and I moved back to Florida after living 3 1/2 years in Manhattan. There are several things that I’m still adjusting to and taking time to revert back to. It’s quite the culture shock, despite living in Florida my whole life before those 3ish years.
One of the biggest differences is pretty obvious: the weather. It was 20 degrees when we packed up our Uhaul in December for the 18 hour drive south to Tampa. When we got here, it was actually pretty cold for Florida standards which mean there were lows in the 30’s.
All is back to normal with a beautiful 75 degree “winter” happening in Florida this week, but I am noticing a major lack of perpetual summer-wear in my closet. We didn’t plan on moving back this year and, since we lived in New York, I had scrubbed it pretty clean of old summer clothes. I had a few basics, but not that much left. Two pairs of shorts won’t cut it when the low is below 60 only about 30 days a year…
Instead of freaking out, I decided to turn to the professionals.

Stitch Fix stylists had previously helped me with my NYC wardrobe (all-black of course), so I wanted to see if they could help me go a different direction- one better suited for warm weather and palm tree backdrops.
My January Fix did not disappoint. All five pieces in it were perfect. Four were staples I plan to wear over and over again in different outfits, and one was the best Florida statement shirt I could ask for. I was really hoping they wouldn’t include bright colors and crazy patterns, because, though that’s very beachy, it’s not very me. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but because this is the whole point of Stitch Fix, but it was very clear the stylist knew exactly what I wanted. She’d seen my previous fix, and how much I adored that, so this one was also me to a tee. She also took into consideration what I’d noted about the big move.
Everything within my Fix was neutral in color (what I gravitate towards) and nothing was overly feminine (what I steer clear of). Also, it all fit (thanks to putting in my sizes and providing feedback from last time), and I didn’t even have to step into a massive mall to find it all.
I highly recommend you try Stitch Fix yourself, and if you do make sure you use this link to waive the styling fee off your first Fix. Oh, and let me know if you’re digging these Florida photos and what you’d like to see more of.
