Stitch Fix #8

17 December 2014

Time for another Stitch Fix!! This was my 8th box, and it was another fun one!  I love my stylist and I know I say it every month, but I get so excited when this box shows up at my door!

What's Stich Fix, if you're new around here?

Here's what I got this month:

1. Bree Striped Split Back Mixed Material Sweater by Fate

So...this was cute in the box, but just okay on.  I like stripes, but didn't love the open back.  It just fit me strange.  That's all I have to say about that.  RETURNED

2. Dominik Colorblock Sweater by Olive and Oak

Now this I kind of wish I would have kept.  It was very soft on, and I like the "colorblock" look and chevron..but I think it was a little too pricey for me.  I can't remember how much it was, but I wanna say between $60-80.  RETURNED.

3.  Zailey Sleeveless Sequin Shoulder Dress by Pixley

I love sparkles.  I love them.  And I love dresses.  This was love at first sight.  BUT the price was high...with it being Christmas time, I was sad to send it back and plus, where would I wear such a fancy dress to? Playgroup? Not so much.  I was sad sad sad to see this go, but I did not keep it.  RETURNED.

4.  Adora Stud Border Tote by Octavia

I asked for a purse in my box, and my stylist delievered!  However, it was huge.  Would work great for a diaper bag, but not so great for a purse because my shoulder would fall off.  I would stuff that sucker to the brim.  Boo.  RETURNED.

5.  Wynn Ikat Print Front Pocket Blouse by Papermoon

Loved the print and the color, but not the fit.  See how high it comes up on my waist?  It was way too short for I didn't keep .  RETURNED.

So yeah, i didn't keep anything this time!  It happens.  It was just an off month for me, with a little too high of prices and a couple wonky fits.  But I can't wait to see next month's box!!!  

Be sure to sign up here, and I'll get a small referral credit! :) :) :)


Sunken Gardens

14 December 2014

Last week or so we rambled up to Saint Pete for the day.  There is a natural parenting store (aka cloth diapers) that I wante to go to and so we stopped by some gardens to take a look.  It was beautiful and Winslow especially loved running up and down the paths.  He did NOT enjoy the talking parrots, though.  Bless his heart, he was terrified of them.

This place was stunning.  So much bountiful greenery and gorgeous plants.  The flamingos were pretty cool too! 

Family Photos.

10 December 2014

Now a days, when family photos are coming up, you usually go to pinterest for ideas.  Whether it be for wardrobe or "poses", every single photo there is flawless. 

We scheduled family photos and of course, had all my ideas pinned on my boards to show the photographer.  We were going to be the cutest little family and get tons of wonderful pictures to go on our Christmas cards. Right?

Would you believe me if I told you my child was a demon child the whole entire time? 

Like nothing i've ever seen before. He's NEVER like that. 

But alas, that's life with a toddler.  He got his way and yes we did end up getting some great photos, but I seriously don't know how! haha! 

He would not let us hold him for more than 4 seconds, did not want me to hold his hand, didn't want kisses, didn't want to look at all the wonderful goodies, didn't want puffs.. you can imagine how that went.

Anyway, here they are and I am in love!
