Hi everyone! I haven’t been around in the blogging world much lately. Between the election, ramping up for the holidays, and other personal stuff (worst morning sickness ever…) I haven’t had much time or energy to spend. However I did receive a pretty awesome box from Trendsend that I wanted to share with you.

How Trendsend Works

  • Sign up and fill out a detailed style profile. Trendsend has one of the longer profiles I’ve filled out, but at least they get a lot of details about what you like and your lifestyle.
  • Request a box or set up an automatic delivery for every 1, 2, or 3 months. I have mine set for on demand.
  • Trendsend will charge you a $1 processing fee that will be credited toward any of your purchases.
  • Trendsend styles your box from the inventory of the store Evereve, and ships it to you FOR FREE!
  • Try everything on, take pictures, take notes, model for your significant other, whatever helps you process the clothing.
  • Keep what you like, and send everything else back within 5 days in the prepaid shipping envelope provided!
  • Check out and leave feedback online.

Even though Evereve doesn’t carry maternity clothes (but they totally should…), I was able to check a box on my survey letting my stylist know I was pregnant. So I was hopeful I would only get clothes that would work for me as my bump grows. My stylist this month was Megan E. I found out on their website that you can now request to have the same stylist, if you like consistency. Here is the note she included:

Hi Mallory,

Happy Trendsend Day! I’m so excited to style this box for you! I read through your Style Profile and I made it my personal mission to create looks with our personal style, budget, wants and needs in mind. Have fun trying on your new items & I hope you love your box, let me know what you think!

Outfit One:

Megan’s Note: I am so excited you wanted to try a poncho! They are a super fun trendy that looks chic and put together but is SO simple for you to throw on! This will be a go-to for you as you continue your pregnancy! I paired it with this staple thermal! The buttons on the sleeve give this simple top a little something extra!

My Thoughts: This poncho is really comfortable, but the color is kind of blah. If Megan had sent the poncho in this beautiful blue color I may not have been able to resist, however I wasn’t feeling the gray. A couple of weeks later I bought this poncho with my reward money in the store, the pattern is so fun! I thought the snaps on the thermal top were pretty cute, and it did look like there was a little room for me to grow before I outgrew the top. However I don’t really like the frayed hem look, and again, white just wasn’t enough for me to fall in love with this top. It does come in lots of other cute colors though! The jeans are also from this box. I’ll get to those in a bit.

Outfit Two:

Megan’s Note: I saw that you have been sent different vest styles, so I thought we would try more of a Fall/Winter style! This one is so darling with its color and style. I added the cold shoulder top after reading you are loving this trend! They create a more chic look then the everyday thermal and vest. Top it off with the cozy grey infinity scarf that is sure to go with countless looks you already own!

My Thoughts: I do love cold shoulder tops, but now that the temperature is starting to drop in Minnesota, my shoulders would be literally freezing. This vest, however, is my jam. It’s so warm and cozy and soft. I’m also a sucker for plaid, and I don’t have any of this color plaid in my closet. I highly recommend it. Plus it’s on sale and comes in other colors! I also decided to keep this scarf. I really like the design because it’s just a tube. Unlike with a regular infinity scarf that I have to keep adjusting to make look nice (is that just me?) this one just slips on and drapes perfectly. Plus the price was great!

Outfit Three:

Megan’s Note: This is a super fun, casual yet trendy look for a mommy on the go! After seeing that you haven’t had a lot of luck with denim so far, I made it my mission to try and finds a pair that is budget friendly and your style. These denim are a STEAL and has the distressing that you love! I paired it with this darling plaid and one of our best selling graphic tee’s! Together this look is flattering, on trend and easy for you to throw on and go!

My Thoughts: I do really love coffee, but since my morning sickness started I haven’t been able to drink any. So this shirt just makes me sad. There is a brunch version of this tee though! I also really loved the plaid shirt, but since I was already buying the vest, I didn’t really want to purchase an expensive buttondown, especially when I wouldn’t be able to button it in another couple of months. The jeans. They do look really, really good. However I could barely squeeze these babies on now, let alone in a month. I really didn’t want to buy a pair of tight pants that would inevitably become my “goal” pants after pregnancy that I would never fit into again. No thank you. I peeled out of these as quickly as I could and crawled back into my comfy pants.

Overall

I’m happy with my purchases, but I’m a little bummed about my box overall this time. I’m not sure why my stylist thought I would be over the moon for neutrals when there are so many fun fall colors out there, but at least I did get to try on a couple of plaid items. This will probably be my last box for awhile, since they don’t offer maternity clothing. I look forward to continuing next summer though once I’ll fit into non-maternity pants again! (Hopefully?)
