Some thoughts and discussions from me.


Happy New Year, friends!

It’s 2015, and I’m so excited. We’ll be chatting a bit about goals again next week, but today I wanted to cap off the week with a fun post – about fashion! Yes, sometimes I actually do wear more than just gym clothes! Sometimes 😉

Last week I received my second Stitch Fix, and thought I’d share the items my stylist, Holly, sent for me to try.

What is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is a fun program where you get an online stylist who sends you 5 items as often as you like (right now I’m on an every-other-month schedule.) Your items are determined by what you fill out in your style profile, which includes everything from fit to your style to budget. You get to choose which items you want to buy, and send back what you don’t like (completely free – they pay for shipping!) As someone who hates malls, I’m obsessed. I talked more about it in this post.

So, Stitch Fix #2. Spoiler alert: my stylist rocked it! She actually mentioned a few things I did that really let her know what my style was. (I was actually thinking of putting together a post of what I think helps get a good fix, if anyone is interested?) Last month there were several items I was really impressed with, and a couple I felt a little meh about. This month, I was consistently pleased all across the board!

Stitch #2 Review – Nailed it!

Torrey Henley Button Top by Fun2Fun and Denna Colored Skinny Jeans by Kut from the Kloth


First let’s just address the obvious and point out that I’m standing outside in the snow (while it’s snowing) without a coat on. Ah, the things we do for a blog post. Oh, hey…what’s over there to my right? LOL

Two of my favorite types of clothing: plaid button downs and colored skinnies! I think my stylist has been checking out my Pinterest style board…



The button down isn’t as fitted as I would like, but I still loved it nonetheless. I’ve actually wanted a pair of maroon skinnies for a while, and these fit the bill. I’m more into distressed jeans, and these are a tad more formal, but I still liked them enough to keep them.

Stefan Graphic Knit Cardigan by Skies are Blue


omg, is that a smize on my face?! Oh wait, it’s  just snow in my eyes…



I loved this shawl and the funky, navajo-ish print on it. Plus, here in Colorado in the winter, I can always use more layers. My stylist suggested cinching the waistline with a red or brown belt – I like the sound of it!

Suzie Hammered Bar Necklace by Bay to Baubles


I loved this necklace! I’m not a fan of shiny silver (or gold, for that matter,) and love the brushed look on this necklace.


Plus the design and how it lay is nice, too.

Oakley Lace Trim Sweater by Le Lis


I loved this sweater because it’s a great casual top to wear while running errands or grabbing lunch with a friend, while the peekaboo ruffles give it a girly flare 🙂
