Stitch Fix #7

I received my seventh stitch fix this week!

If you haven’t heard….

Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that sends you a package of clothes and accessories to try on at home. You keep what you like and send the rest back! All you have to do is sign-up on their website, fill out your style profile, and schedule your fix! The cost for each fix is $20, however that $20 then goes towards your purchase. If you keep everything in your box you get 25% off the entire order! You have three days to decide what you want to keep – anything you don’t keep can be sent back in a pre-paid envelope.

This is what I got:

Item 1: Octavia| Sandra Abstract Print Infinity Scarf $34

Item 2: RD Style | Calandra Side Button Hooded Poncho $68
Stitch Fix #7

I asked specifically for a plaid scarf and a sweater poncho and my stylist delivered!  I have been living in the poncho since I got the thing. I feel a bit disappointed that it has warmed back up this week and I have had to take it off! -As for the scarf – also love. It is very fuzzy and warm. These will be two staples in my wardrobe this fall and winter! KEPT!

Item 3 | Papermoon | Kasidy Abstract Print Swing Skirt $58
Stitch Fix #7

I wasn’t sure of this skirt when opening my fix. It isn’t something I would normally gravitate towards. But I decided to give it a shot – and I am liking it! I wore it to work today – so comfy! And lots of compliments. KEPT!

Item #4 | THML | Izzie Striped Fit and Flare Dress $64Stitch Fix #7

If you know me at all you know I kept the dress.  Striped. Fit and Flare. 100% me. KEPT!

Item 5 | Olive & Oak | Tania Plaid Cotton Button-Up Top $64Stitch Fix #7

My closet is lacking button-down shirts for some reason. I was so excited to get this one in my fix! And I love the plaid! It’s nothing like I have in my closet right now – and I love that! Mixing things up. Trying something new. I imagine layering it under sweaters this winter – or even pairing it with a pencil skirt.  KEPT.

That’s right. I kept the whole box!  My second home run since I started doing Stitch Fix!  I am thrilled! My next box is scheduled for December. Can’t wait!

You can see my past fixes here.

I am still plugging away at with the Project Life app.  Still loving it.  For me this works really, really well. It’s easy and convenient and I can make pages wherever I am at! All good!  I have been sending orders two weeks at a time to Persnickity Prints and that works great too. The orders come so fast and the photo quality and paper weight are wonderful.  I am a happy camper with this new digital method I am trying out!

I would love to hear from you! Please leave me any questions or comments below.

10.20.14 | Goodbye Monday


So yes…I once again picked sleeping over blogging this morning!  What can I say – I am a tired girl who needs more sleep then I actually get.  So instead of Hello Monday, I am saying Goodbye Monday.  Which isn’t all that bad if I think about it.

Is it too late to share photos from the weekend??

I think not. And so I shall.

Walking School Bus day on Friday! Although I didn’t even get back home before the school was calling. Owen was having tummy issues and needed to go home. Eeek!
Walking school bus day! #bostinelosbros

But besides poor Owen having tummy issues..the walk was amazing. The fall colors have peaked around here and my only regret was not having my big camera with me. Oh well the phone will do.A fall morning walkLove fall

Friday night the boys slept over at a friend’s house and Zooey had her own over night guest. I think they were excited not to have to deal with any boys in the house.Zooey having a sleepover. They are up to no good @lisaannpetersonBoys are gone girls will play #airhockey

This weekend the weather was AMAZING! And it won’t last unfortunately. It’s this time of year that us Iowans go out and soak in every drop of good weather we can, knowing that winter is right around the corner. I took these three knuckleheads out to explore.Spending time with my three soaking up some prefect fall weatherIMG_3549bIMG_3558bIMG_3561bIMG_3629bIMG_3674IMG_3703bIMG_3731bIMG_3767IMG_3796

All that hiking made them hungry.

Sunday was a Princess party for one of Zooey’s friends. It was the cutest party…in a castle and real princesses showed up! Zooey was over the moon excited – especially with Cinderella. I actually had the honor in taking 2 Cinderella’s to the party.
