Sisters are the best. Especially my sister. She is almost 7 years younger than me, but we have always been so close. When she moved away to college, it was tough because I went from seeing her about every other day to maybe once or twice a month. She is only 45 minutes down the road, but it just isn’t like it used to be. Perks of growing up, I guess.
Over the weekend I was able to spend a lot of time with her. We laughed a lot, played dominoes, laid by the pool, did a lot of talking and she modeled for me! She bought this outfit on our shopping trip and so obviously I had to take pictures of her in it. She is beautiful and has a unique style. She is the type of girl who doesn’t care what anyone things about her. She will wear, say, do whatever she thinks is right for her. I so admire that quality and am trying to be more like that myself. If she wants to wear a hat, she will. No matter how people look at her or what people say about it.
I had a lot of fun photographing Alex. She has a smile that is contagious. Not to mention that maxi! I’m in love!
Do you have a sister? Are you loving maxis this season?
Happy hump day, friends! I’m chillin’ out in Orlando with Ryan. I tagged along so that I could get away for a couple of days while he attends conferences. My mom is keeping Hampton for the first time for a couple of nights and I am missing him so much. It’s nice to have a break and rest, but not having my little munchkin around is tough. I have been able to lay by the pool, catch up on my favorite blogs and read. A lot. It has been so awesome.
Since I’ve been away, this has basically been my wardrobe. Lately, I’ve found this to be my go-to weekend look as well. Simple with a little pop of color. I know I know…already dreaming of the weekend. I can’t help it. I am obsessing over these accessories from Charming Charlie.
What are some of your wardrobe staples? What do you wear on a casual weekend?
I am obsessed with aztec print. I loved it for fall and winter, and guess what? Apparently it’s in for spring and summer this year! I learned about stitch fix through several other bloggers and my eyes got really wide and I signed up immediately. The waiting list was long at the time and so I just got my first fix in the mail a few days ago. I kept this tank top but returned the other items.
So what did I think?
I was very impressed with my first stitch fix box. The clothes fit me perfectly and they were exactly my style. I couldn’t have been happier with the choices they picked for me.
The prices. I wasn’t expecting everything to be so expensive. If I bought all of the items, I could pay $219.00 but if I bought them individually or just two, etc. it was much more expensive. All of the items added individually were $318.00…so that’s how they get you. I didn’t want all of the items in my fix, so it was a bit of an expense to purchase the tank by itself, but I didn’t want my $20 processing fee to be wasted, so I paid the difference anyway.
I was pretty disappointed in the prices and probably won’t be doing it again. Although I loved the clothes, I just don’t want to spend that much money on a box of clothing every month. Maybe I’m cheap? I don’t know. I just don’t like spending much on my clothes. I mean, after all I am a girl and the styles change so much every year. I don’t want to invest a ton of money in something I may only wear one season.
Have you tried Stitch Fix? What are your thoughts? How much do you spend on clothing each month?
The past few days have been so crazy around here. Set aside working while taking care of your six month old, but when your home internet goes out for four days (and counting), and Starbucks quickly becomes your office space/day care (sorry, SB) things can get pretty interesting real fast. Needless to say, things have been pretty stressful because our whole routine has been flipped upside down.
Good news? It is May! Can you believe it? May is full of graduations, celebrations, weddings, showers, parties, etc. all of which we are attending this month. It is always a fun and busy month for us. I can’t wait to celebrate my brother and nephew’s birthdays in a week and attend a wedding this weekend. So much fun to be had. We will be welcoming the summer before you know it, however, if you live down south like me, you’re probably already experiencing it and are laying by the pool as we speak (I wish).
Adding a little color to your wardrobe is a must this time of year. No more dreary winter colors. Headbands are also a huge addition to this year’s wardrobe. I’m loving this flower headband from The Colt and Filly! Kacie makes the most adorable headbands and earring for you and your LO! The anchor earrings are a perfect addition to any summer outfit. My sister is already trying to steal them from me.
What are your favorite summer accessories? Are you attending any weddings this season?
