Stitch Fix Review: Weekend Getaway Edition

Reviews, Style

I’ve been a Stitch Fix customer for almost four years now. After I had my first child, going to the mall proved challenging but not impossible. The next two kids, while cute, proved what a pipe dream leisurely pursuing the mall for that perfect outfit really is. So in theory, Stitch Fix sounds like a working moms dream – fill out a short style profile and a professional stylist will send you five pieces specifically suited for your taste and…

Stitch Fix Review: Not Too Shabby

Reviews, Style
Mia Ozella Laser Cut Sandal

My last few Stitch Fixes have been, how do you say, no bueno. My last one in September was so horrendous that I took a brief hiatus from the service, even though they offered to re-style me for free. After having several “I hate all my clothes!” days in a row, I decided what the hell, let’s give Stitch Fix another try. With the $20 styling fee waived, I literally had nothing to lose. In my note to my stylist,…

#OOTD: Weekend Athleisure

Outfit of the Day, Style

I want to send a bottle of wine and a love letter to whatever goddess made athleisure a thing. Moms were rocking this look way before any fashionistas did, but I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth (what the hell does that mean anyways?) No, I’m just going to strut my stuff in these amazing black acid washed moto leggings and purple tunic, both from Stitch Fix. The leggings are the Dayton Acid Wash Moto Detail Legging…

Stitch Fix: Weekend Getaway

Reviews

Recently, I got to go on a work trip to a very fabulous location. So I did what any working mom would do: asked a grandma to come watch the kids and bought a ticket for my husband to meet me out there. We have not had a kids-free trip in YEARS (literally seven!), plus it was right around both of our birthdays, so we were ready to have some fun. Of course, that means new clothes! And since there’s…

Stitch Fix: All Black & White Edition

Beauty, Reviews

I feel like every day I’m faced with making thousands of different decisions at home and at work. Some are small (What should we eat for dinner tonight?) and some are large (Is this the best way for our company to spend this money?). Most days I feel like the majority of my brain power is used up making thousands of small decisions, and I find myself staring at my closet for more time then I’m willing to admit trying to…

The Ultimate List of Services to Make Your Life Easier

Mom Life

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the “invisible workload” that drags women down. How we’re usually the only ones who remember it’s Aunt Patty’s birthday, notice that there’s no toilet paper in the bathroom and actually SEE the overflowing basket of dirty laundry. Not only are we the ones who notice these things, but we’re usually the ones who also get to buy the birthday card for Aunt Patty, load everyone up in the car to head to…

Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gifts

Let's Spend Some Money

For Mother’s Day, I usually get a bouquet of flowers with a card from my husband and a cute handmade something-something from my little. But what do I really want? Well, since you asked, what I really want is a weekend staycation alone. Just me, a box of wine and a strong WiFi connection to binge watch all the Netflix shows I miss, thanks to Bubble Guppies and Frozen. I want to sleep when I want, eat all my meals through…

Stitch Fix Review: The Time I Kept Everything

Reviews

I love the idea of Stitch Fix: someone sending me clothes and allowing me to try them on in the comfort of my own home?! #yesplease  But they have been admittedly hit or miss in the past. Either nothing works and it all goes back while I bemoan how I have nothing to wear, or, I keep all five items even though I vowed to spend less on clothes this month. Based on the title of this post, you can…
