It’s so crazy to me that we’re in the last month of summer already. This is the first summer where we haven’t traveled anywhere and it’s really throwing me for a loop.
We’ve been splitting our time between our Seattle home and our new PNW vacation rental home this summer. We’ve been working hard to get it all set up, so I’ve been living in old t-shirts and shorts while we paint the walls and assemble furniture.
I totally forgot my Stitch Fix box was even coming until it arrived on my door step the other day.
This Stitch Fix box is a total mystery, as I didn’t leave my Stitch Fix stylist a note or anything. My guess is that it has general summer clothing.
We’re lucky that summer usually lasts through September here in the Pacific Northwest, so I’ll have a bit more time to wear summer clothing.SAVE $25 ON STITCH FIX
Let’s take a peek at what was inside my August 2020 Stitch Fix box:
Stitch Fix Unboxing and Try On: August 2020
So, I really loved my last Stitch Fix box that was full of coastal/nautical themed clothing. Let’s see if my stylist is still on a roll with her Stitch Fix selections and whether or not this Stitch Fix unboxing is a hit or a miss.

MARKET & SPRUCE | BRITTA T-SHIRT DRESS
Last month, my awesome Stitch Fix stylist found me a super cute Lilly Pulitzer striped dress that I loved but just couldn’t splurge on. She was nice enough to take another look and find me something in my price range!
I’m always a fan of dresses that are made from high quality fabric that are easy to slip on and go.
Retail price: $64.00
What I Liked about this Britta T-Shirt Dress
It’s sooooo soft! And the fabric is thick enough to keep me warm, but it’s also short enough to keep me cool. It’s kind of like the best of both worlds.
The color combo is really pretty. I love the faded blue color mixed with the white stripes. Definitely makes me think of the beach!
It also feels pretty versatile. I’ll be able to wear this all summer long as a dress and then I can wear it with leggings and a denim jacket in the spring.
What I Didn’t Like about this Britta T-Shirt Dress
I admit that it’s a little shorter than most of my other dresses. But, just because I’m in my mid-thirties doesn’t mean I still can’t wear a mid-thigh length dress if I want!
FINAL VERDICT: Keep
Z SUPPLY | TAMIKA V NECK KNIT TOP
I’ve been purging my t-shirts all year long because either the graphics are peeling off or they are starting to get holes. I’m trying to do a mix of trendy t-shirts as well as good quality classic tees that should last a few years (or more!)
Stripes are a trend that has been around for generations and I think they will always be in style!
Retail price: $36.00
What I Liked about this Tamika V Neck Knit Top
I love how this striped tee has a looser fit than some of my other shirts but it doesn’t feel baggy. It looks great with denim cutoffs as well as distressed jeans and works for any time of year.
The fabric is really soft and it already feels worn in. It’s kind of like when I got hand-me-down clothes from my older cousins growing up. Everything felt so cozy and comfy and I immediately felt cool wearing it.
Plus, it reminds me a lot of the Parisian Breton shirts!
What I Didn’t Like about this Tamika V Neck Knit Top
The price is a bit more than I usually spend for a t-shirt (I usually score amazing deals at Nordstrom Rack) but I’m all about investing a bit more in clothing that should last longer.
FINAL VERDICT: Keep
WISP | MILLENA KNIT ROMPER
This has been the year of jumpsuits for me. I’ve always been scared to wear them because they seem like a pain to use the restroom. However, I’m realizing that it’s all about how they are designed.
Rompers are the next summer fashion trend I wanted to try out, so I was thrilled to see it in my August Stitch Fix box!
Retail price: $74.00
What I Liked about this Millena Knit Romper
The fabric is silky soft and it feels really good when I wear it. I have a long torso and this romper fits it very well (without giving me a wedgie!)
I also like the length. A lot of rompers I’ve tried on are meant for teens and they are just too short for me. This one hits about mid thigh and it’s a very flattering length.
What I Didn’t Like about this Millena Knit Romper
I just couldn’t get into the print. It’s black, white, and red and those just weren’t wowing me. I would have seriously considered keeping this had the print been larger and different colors.
FINAL VERDICT: Return
RAINBEAU | JOGGER WITH POCKETS
Our lifestyle has changed a bit this year, where we are spending a whole lot more time at home than traveling or going on local PNW adventures. So, I’m always on the lookout for cute athleisure that I can wear around our neighborhood (without feeling like a slob!)
Retail price: $30.00
What I Liked about this Jogger with Pockets
I like that the fabric is lightweight. It definitely feels like stretchy, cotton yoga pants. And I love that it has pockets big enough for car keys or a cell phone.
What I Didn’t Like about this Jogger with Pockets
Where do I even begin? It’s a weird, failed combination of jogger pants and yoga pants. It was loose in the legs, but super tight around my booty. I’m not sure if it was just the wrong size or if it’s supposed to be like that. Either way, I knew instantly that I’d need to return them.
FINAL VERDICT: Return
Z SUPPLY | FAIGA KNIT MIDI DRESS
Like I said earlier, I’m a huge fan of super easy summer dresses. I love a good t-shirt dress and this one intrigued me right out of the box. I have a grey one that I wear all the time and I’ve been wanting to get another one because they are so perfect for summer.
Retail price: $58.00
What I Liked about this Faiga Knit Midi Dress
The hemline is just lovely! It’s flirty and dresses it up a bit. This would be so cute with a denim jacket and a statement necklace for going out to dinner or happy hour. Or it can be a nice beach coverup with flip flops.
And it’s loose enough that it will be comfortable all year long, even if you gain or lose a few pounds.
What I Didn’t Like about this Faiga Knit Midi Dress
I already have a couple of black cotton blend dresses that I rarely wear, so couldn’t justify another one. And this one clung to my underwear when I tried it on, so that sealed the deal.
I know I could just wear different undies, but that was enough to make the decision for me.

Watch My Full Stitch Fix Unboxing + Try On Video
Overall, I’d say this Stitch Fix Unboxing delivered the right beachy style I was looking for!
This box was filled with items that just scream “take me on a beach vacay!” I love the color palate and how comfortable each piece is.
The clothes were chic and easy to dress up or down.
