My own personal stylist

One thing about me… I am all about sharing fashion and beauty tips with girlfriends and love when they share tips in return. A co-worker of mine always seemed to have the cutest outfits so I finally asked her where she got the blouse she had on that day and she said Stitch Fix. I had to ask her what exactly that was, since it was the first time I was hearing about it. I didn’t need much convincing to check it out and was so glad I did.

If you’re not familiar, you go on to their website and fill out a fairly detailed style profile, including everything from style preference and price range, down to your bra size. It allows you to put any specifics in a note to your stylist and select how often you would like to receive shipments of the five pieces your stylist selects for you. In my case, I selected every other month for the time being. The part I like best is there’s only a $20 styling fee so worst case scenario, if you receive your box of goodies and don’t like anything, you are only out $20.

They also provide you with a fun styling pamphlet with a couple of suggestions on how to style the pieces you receive. These are the three (minus the one in the bottom right) I decided to keep out of the five I received so I would say my first Stitch Fix experience was a big success!

The California Coast

A work trip recently took me to beautiful Dana Point, California. Luckily, I didn’t have to worry too much about any packing challenges because I had a daily uniform but did pack a couple of things just in case we finished early one night. This maxi dress from Target was the perfect thing to bring since it was not only easy to pack but is super comfy as a non-maternity piece for being four months pregnant. 🙂



The Beach Hut was a cool little sandwich spot we found on our last day. I absolutely love finding off the beaten path places like this. For some reason, they always make my trip. Well, that and the fact I finally had In-N-Out Burger for the first time. It’s funny how, after eating nicely prepared hotel food for a week, how you end up craving a plain old cheeseburger.
