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

Keep or Return: Maxi Skirt

Okay, I need your help. I’m having one of those days where I’m kind of living in my own head and focusing on my flaws. I’ve never really been a long skirt kinda girl – with dresses or skirts – but I’ve recently been intrigued by the idea of a maxi skirt.I like that they look nice, even though you’re basically running around in a fancy nightgown. Not that I actually wear fancy nightgowns… but you know what I mean....more

March Stitch Fix: Spring Fever

Maryland is such a tease. We had a couple 60 degree days last week and then over the weekend there was more snow. MORE SNOW. I am SO sick of snow! I’m so sick of my winter clothes and I want the world to bust out in warm weather and springy prints, which I prance around singing Disney songs.I mean, is that too much for a girl to ask for?!With spring weather on my brain and songs in my head, I was hoping this month’s Stitch Fix would be a breath of warm air. Here’s the note I left for my stylist:...more

I'm a 2015 Bloggie Award Winner!

Remember when I told you that I was nominated for a Bloggie Award? Well, I didn’t really expect to win.I have been fortunate to have been named a finalist for three years in a row and figured I’d be the ‘Susan Lucci’ of the Bloggies. Which was totally fine with me.
