Stitch Fix Time!!!!

Hey Ya'll!! 
I have some exciting news for you....my stitch fix has arrived!! I love getting these and getting to see and try on all the different fits and styles! It is different than just going to the store and searching the racks, there is something so exciting about having items hand picked for you and sent to your doorstep to try on in the privacy of your own home! 

Sometimes I don't buy anything and sometimes I buy most of the items it all depends. If you are on a budget you may not be in a place to purchase some items but if the price is right you can buy multiples! It is all very interesting to me I just love it!! 

Take a look below at my super cute outfits and if you ever want to give Stitch Fix a try I have a referral link please feel free to use and if you have any questions on how it works please reach out. I have been doing it for years!!

Now, this fix I was very hesitant about because we are saving up for a mini vacation so I knew I was on a budget but they waived my styling fee which they normally do for promotions or if you haven't ordered in a while so I thought to myself I will give it a chance, maybe I can get a super cute outfit for my mini vaca!

Fix #1 
I am completely in love with this top!! It is a Breyson Pleated Detail Blouse from 41Hawthorn and let me tell you the fit and cut on this shirt was spot on but for me, the price tag was just too high. 

Fix #2

This shirt from the front was perfect but I do not like how open the back was. This style on some of my girlfriends looks great but for me I just couldn't see myself realistically wearing it. This shirt is Renato Drape Back Detail by Brixon Ivy.

Fix #3
This skirt is Brandi Embroidered by THML and I am in love with this skirt!! I have been looking for a super cute pencil skirt I could double up and wear to work and out. This skirt definitely hit the spot for me! Unfortunately again the price was just too high.

Fix #4
The pants girls, the pants! I am too short for these wide legs and I specifically said short and skinny or straight legs. This was kinda a disappointment for me. I just do not like the way they fit or looked on me. These pants are Conley Wide Trouser Jeans by ONE5ONE.

Fix #5
This is the Evander Dress by 41Hawthorn and I am in love!! Stitch Fix really nailed my style for at least half of my fix but dang it why do the items have to be so expensive.  

I really would have liked to buy the Evander dress, the Brandi  Embroidered skirt and the Breyson Pleated Detail Blouse but I'm afraid I didn't buy anything from this fix! 
The styles were on point but my husband would kill me if I spent that much on 3 items! But I never get discouraged because I have bought some really great and reasonably priced items from Stitch Fix in the past so I will definitely continue to try them! 

Like I said if you want to give Stitch Fix a try please do it, it is a great experience even if you only do it once. If you have any questions please reach out!!!

Happy Birthday To My Precious Girl!!!

Today is July 16 
My precious baby girl is 7 today and it seems completely unreal to me!! 
Where has the time gone?! 

On one hand I am happy that she is getting bigger and we can do more "grown up" things like go to the movies without tantrums or disruptions (on a good day) or play salon and paint our toes and fingers. It is very fun watching her grow and learn more and more each day. BUT on the other hand it is so sad to know my baby girl isn't a baby anymore. I miss the smell of her baby hair and the softness of her wrinkled skin. I miss the oos and ahhs of her baby talk. 
Although I miss those sweet precious milestones I know there are many more to come. 

For her birthday we went to Deam Lake, I know that I have talked about this lake before but it is in Indiana and just so peaceful and gorgeous! We had a small cookout with my sister and her kiddos, then spent the next couple hours in the water just feeling the sun on our skin! It was perfect!!

The scenery is just so relaxing with such a clear view of the blue sky and a pretty view of the trees across the water.

This is my favorite picture! Just the perfect picture to describe how perfect the weather was yesterday, just a simple sail boat catching some waves!!

The birthday girl just playing in the water, all day she was on the hunt for special rocks and sea shells. She had quite the collection before we left.

It is amazing to me the simple fun the kiddos had searching for rocks and sea shells, they were occupied for hours and hours just being kids! 

Why can't she just stay this young forever?!?
