My June Stitch Fix: A Buy-it-All Fix?

I can’t believe that July is right around the corner and I’m just now getting my June Stitch Fix delivery. It would have been a bit earlier, but we decided to skip town and spend last week at the beach.

This Fix is #21… so I’m kind of a fan!}...more

4 Ways to Style a Printed Maxi Skirt

I recently bought my very first maxi skirt, but still wasn't quite sold on it. I mean, it looked cute with a black T-shirt, but would I really get enough wear out of it? Not only was it a lot of skirt, but it was also a lot of (very cute) print! Instead of returning it, I challenged myself to come up with four different outfits. Keep it Simple ...more

Reviewing Jamberry Wraps

Finding Shorts I Don't Hate

I think I hate shorts shopping even more than swimsuit shopping.I know, I know. That’s QUITE a statement because nobody likes swimsuit shopping…but every time I try to find a new pair of shorts it seems like my two choices are either super long or super short.

Last year, my ‘go to’ look was to clip my bangs back with a barrette and do a French braid that fell over my shoulder. This year, my hair is a little shorter – due to a major chop session last fall – so my French braid is kind of stumpy and sad.Which brings us to buns, hun....more

My May Stitch Fix: Feeling like Summertime!

One of the Maryland-y things about Maryland is that spring lasts for a split second before summer stomps its way in with a fun mix of heat and humidity.Since summer slows down at my work, it’s a great time to escape and spend some time down at the beach with my family. I’m already counting down the days to our first week away! So yeah, go ahead and listen to this song while you’re reading today’s post.With that in mind, here’s the note I sent to my stylist for this month’s Fix:...more
