My Stitch Fix Story

I've decided to tell my Stitch Fix Story as a fun distraction from my usually serious blog material. :)

(Actually, Stitch Fix is asking people to tell their stories and offering a grand prize of $1000 in Stitch Fix credit. This is what has truly motivated me.)

Stitch Fix is a company that offers personal styling and sends items right to your home. You start by completing a style profile questionnaire that helps them determine your style and fit preferences. You pay a $20 styling fee that you can use toward purchasing items from your fix and you chose a date for your items to arrive. Then, Stitch Fix sends you a delightful box with five items picked just for you and the real fun begins.

I first heard about Stitch Fix on my favorite blog, Chatting at the Sky by Emily P. Freeman. It sounded really fun and I knew that my sister Karyn, fashionista that she is, would love it too. So, we both completed style profiles and chose the same date for delivery of our Stitch Fixes.

We waited in great anticipation all morning until the UPS truck pulled up in front of our parents' house. Lily's barking at the sound of the doorbell could not compete with our delighted shrieks as we raced for the door like little girls on Christmas morning. We tore into our boxes and discovered amazing clothes picked just for us.

Karyn had specially requested items for her honeymoon cruise and received several lightweight shirts and dresses that were fashionable and perfect for tropical weather. I had specially requested items to wear when meeting Ben's family for the first time at his sister's graduation. I ended up loving three of my items: two shirts and a dress. I wore the dress to Amy's graduation and I wore one of the shirts in our engagement photos. 

Pink Martini - Briana Bird Print Belted Dress - $88.00

DownEast - Stevie Contoured Top - $35.00

This experience was so incredibly fun and exciting that Karyn and I were sure that we wanted to do it again. We also talked our mom into joining us. Stitch Fix #2 was even more fun because the three of us took turns pulling items out of our boxes, trying them on and admiring them.

Here is what I got in Stitch Fix #2:

Ellison - Brooke Dot Print Tab Sleeve Blouse - $38
41Hawthorn - Orinda Stretch Banded Leggings - $38

I decided to keep the blouse and the leggings. The blouse has a nice fit. I like that I can wear it long or roll up the sleeves. It's also not pastel and I tend to wear lots of pastels. I would not usually spend this much money on leggings, but these are the most comfortable leggings that I have ever experienced!

41Hawthorn - Rectangle Cluster Statement Necklace - $38

Lansome - Christina Printed Peplum Dress - $48

I decided not to get this dress because it was quite fitted on bottom and I didn't feel comfortable in it, even with the leggings. But, I absolutely loved the necklace! And, that was a surprise to me. But, I have worn it several times since and I always get compliments.

My absolute favorite in this fix was the cardigan. You can't see it in the picture, but it has a knit overlay on one of the top white stripes and it is so cute how it ties. I have never seen a cardigan quite like this and am so excited for the weather to get colder so that I can wear it!

Evolution by Cyrus - Munro Tie-Waist Striped Cardigan - $60
If you think that you would like to try a Stitch Fix, then I strongly encourage you to do it. I have loved both of my fixes and think that it's a great way to explore new clothes.

Heart Revival

Hey you guys,

It's been almost two years since my last post. What?!

I know some of you probably forgot that I even used to do this, but I hope that you're as excited as I am that I'm coming back to blogging. It's a new season and God has been stirring up lots of creativity and courage in me recently. I'm happy to tell you all about it.

In case you missed it, I became a mom to sweet Elias last summer. In fact, he is about to turn 1 year old on Monday and I can't believe it! Guys, he is absolutely the sweetest, calmest and most delightful baby you can ever imagine and I still tear up sometimes in gratitude when I remember that he is my little boy.

One of my life dreams to be a stay-at-home mama has been partially fulfilled in that I only work three days a week during the school year. I work 2 1/2 days at RCS Elementary School and it is an amazing place. Shortly after I got there, they put me in charge of the two chapel services that happen each week. Guess what? …

Transition, transition, transition

Wow, it's already the middle of September! This past month has flown by for me.

I just finished my fifth week of the new school year.

I am loving The Quiet Collection by Emily P Freeman to help me have a sane September. (This blog post appearing is a partial fruit from one of those devotions which encouraged me to stop overthinking things and create.)

I'm remembering how vital my crock pot is if we want to have a hot dinner on a work day.

I have completed 8 of my 21 days of working out goal for this month!

I have done some hard stops for prayer, gazing on beauty, snuggling one of my loves and remembering how to breathe deeply.

One of the discoveries in this season of transition is that I have believed that busy=bad. My sweet, slow-paced summer schedule has been swapped out for one that is much more highly charged with many responsibilities and activities that are looking for a place within my week. I have found myself feeling shame over how full my schedule is and afraid that …

A Summer to Thrive

I am finishing my last week of my summer work hours. I have been reflecting on my summer and how I spent it.

In May, I intentionally wrote a list of hopes, dreams and goals for my summer season. I used my daring greatly manifesto from Vulnerability, Courage, Shame, and Empathy: The Living Brave Continuing Education Course. I completed Jess Connolly's Summer to Thrive: A Guide to Chilling Out and Enjoying Summer. I also spent time in prayer and asked God to give me words and ideas that would define the season.

This week, I am taking time to review these things. I am also rereading what I journaled about my actual summer. I feel encouraged by what a great summer it has been and how many of my hopes I was able to engage!

I pursued wholeheartedness in a lot of ways. I read books, I cooked and baked, I listened to music and I spent a lot of sweet quality time with people I cherish. I enjoyed time in prayer and worship each week and adopted a much slower pace of life. I asked questions …
