Stitch Fix May 2017

Well, it’s better late than never, right? I’m posting my May Stitch Fix review a bit later than normal, but such is life. April was a month of big changes, more in that soon, which meant sometimes other areas of life suffer. You know, adult problems. Anyway, a monthly delivery from Stitch Fix is always a welcome redlined from boring adult activities, and this one is a good one!

Stitch Fix May 2017 Review

If you’re new to Stitch Fix, I’ll break it down real quick. For a $20 styling fee, receive a box on your doorstep containing five items – anything from clothing to jewelry to handbags to shoes based on your style profile and Pinterest style board. Send back what you don’t like, keep what you do, and your $20 styling fee will be deducted from the total. Keep all five items and receive an additional 25% off. Stitch Fix also is now serving male clients too! Have a significant other or male relative in need of some shopping assistance? Send them over to Stitch Fix Men! It works the same way, and it’s perfect for the man in your life because let’s be honest, most men hate shopping!

Stitch Fix also offers maternity and petite sizing, and plus sizes have finally made their debut as well. Stitch Fix is now offering over 90 brands for Plus Size clients in sizes 1X-3X or 14W-24W depending on the brand. Brands include ELOQUII, Junarosa, Slink Jeans, and more. You can sign up for Stitch Fix Plus here.

And now with all the details out of the way, onto what came in my Stitch Fix this month!

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Yesterday my mom and I set out on another Mother’s Day Adventure, this time at Pacific Place in Downtown Seattle. Knowing my mom and her love of window shopping, I knew partnering up with them would be a great fit! With so many great options to shop at for Mom, Pacific Place is a one-stop destination, with stores like L’Occitane, Chico’s, and Francescasr to delicious food options from Din Tai Fung, Pike Place Chowder, and sweet treats from Trophy Cupcake, you really can’t go wrong. Plus if you and mom are exhausted from an all-day shopping adventure, you can always kick up your feet and catch a flick at the AMC Theatre at the very top! ;)

5 Ways to Pamper Mom This Mother’s Day

My mom is a pretty special lady. At 50, she decided to take on a whole new career and hit the books so that she could do it. I think my leaving for college may have had something to do with that, but I appreciate her drive and can-do attitude. She’s one of those people who thinks of others first and rarely spends time or money on herself. If anyone deserves a special Mother’s Day, it’s mine, which is why I wanted to pamper mom this Mother’s Day!

5 Ways to Pamper Mom This Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day always reminds me to be appreciative of the skills and life lessons she has taught me. Because my mom works so hard and seems to always be doing something, whether it’s working, helping someone out of some type of financial or tax pickle (she’s a Tax Advisor and bookkeeper for small businesses and organizations), or off to take Rigby for a walk, I wanted to be sure Mother’s Day for her this year would be something where she didn’t have to do anything.

The Secret to Feeling More Confident

You know, I spent a lot of time in my younger days wishing I looked like someone else. And if I’m being honest, I still have some of those same hang ups. I never had a flat stomach, and I’ve had to learn how to dress in a way that minimizes it. My boobs are larger than most women who are my size and height. And my butt, well, it used to be nonexistent, and then I hit late-20-something and now I actually have pants that won’t accommodate it. I also have larger-than-average arms and shoulders, leftover from my swim team days.

Sure, I once wished all of it away. And sometimes I still do. But I’ve also learned the secret to being more confident. And I hate to break it to you, but there is none. The secret lies within you. It means accepting your flaws, whatever that means to you. What I may find a flaw in myself might be your best feature. What I may love about myself may be your biggest insecurity. What being in my late 20s has taught me is that no two people are alike, and that is something worth celebrating.

We as women are too hard on ourselves. We feel bad when we go up a size. (Or at least I do.) I put pressure on myself to never gain weight, to stay the same. And honestly, that’s just not practical. Our bodies change as we get older, and for some bodies who transition to having children, they may change a whole lot.

So how have I worked on feeling more confident?

3 Festival Outfit Ideas for Every Style

Well, it’s officially music festival season! Looking outside and seeing raindrops on the sidewalks and windows doesn’t make it feel very much like it here in Seattle, but I’ll just pretend I’m in the California sun. ;) While I’ve never been to Coachella, I have definitely embraced some of the festival vibes of our local music scene. From Folklife to Sasquatch and Hempfest, Seattle and Eastern Washington has a music scene and lifestyle all it’s own. And fashion is most definitely an integral part of it, which is why you always need to have some good festival outfit ideas up your sleeve!
