Wedding Ready with Stitch Fix + WW Link Up

Happy Friday and Fourth of July weekend!  Does everyone have fun plans?  I'm heading up to Vermont for my cousins baby shower, then will be at the lake the rest of the weekend.  I can't wait for another fun weekend in the sun with my family.  On top of the holiday, July 3rd is the twins second birthday.  I can't believe that they are turning two!  We'll be keeping their birthday small and simple this year by having a cake and ice cream party at the lake with all of their cousins and lake friends.  However, I will tell the boys that the fireworks are just for them, ha!

Now that we're in the midst of summer, we've entered the prime season for weddings and special occasions, so today I'm sharing a look that's perfect for attending such an event.   This dress is another item that was in my Stitch Fix box (you can see the other items here).  Not only do I love the navy color for summer, but I'm obsessing over the crochet detailing.  It's so simple, yet elegant and perfect for summer.  I added my lace nude heels (sorry if you're getting sick of them, they just go with everything) and a statement necklace to finish my look.  Although this dress is perfect for a special occasion, it can also work great for the office with a pair of pumps (or flats) and a blazer.

If you're not familiar with Stitch Fix, you can learn more about the clothing subscription service here, and make sure you check out my last post to see the other items that were in my box this month.

So which of the five items that were in my Stitch Fix box did I end up keeping?  The red Street Level clutch.  Yes, unfortunately that was it for this months shipment.

The Kut From The Kloth boyfriend jeans were great (and a great price), but I have to admit that I already own three pairs of boyfriend jeans, and I wasn't looking for a new pair at this time.  

This Donna Morgan navy dress is such a classic, and would be a great piece to add to my wardrobe, but the top of the dress is a touch too big (as you may have noticed in a couple of photos).  So it was sent back.

The Market & Spruce stripe top (not shown) was also really cute, but I didn't love the fit.  If it had been a bit more oversized, I would have kept it.

As for the Brixon Ivy lace top that I featured in my last post, I really loved it.  I contemplated keeping it, but since I have two very similar black tops in my closet, I decided to be responsible and pass on having a third. 

Although I only kept one item in this shipment, my stylist really nailed it with my style.  After all, it's not her fault I already own a few very similar items #bloggerproblems.  After giving her my feedback, I know that my next box will be ever better, and I can't wait for it to arrive next month!

Dressing Up Boyfriend Jeans With Stitch Fix

Happy Hump Day my friends!  So I finally took the plunge and jumped on the Stitch Fix wagon.  I'm sure most of you are already familiar with the online service, but if not, now you will be!  Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription service, where items are picked out based upon your style preferences, and delivered right to your door step.  A lot of customers end up choosing a monthly subscription, as I did, but you have the option to choose how often or little you'd like deliveries.  Upon signing up, you are asked questions about your style, then assigned a stylist who picks out five items per shipment to send you.  You have three days to try on the clothes and decide what you want to keep or send back.  This is the best part about the service, since you are able to do this in the comfort of your own home.  You simply keep what you want, and send the rest back in the prepaid shopping bag that is provided.  There is a styling fee with each box of $20, however, if you decide to purchase items from your box, then the $20 is put towards your purchase.  And if you decide to keep all 5 items, then you get a 25% discount!

I have to say that I was very pleased with the items that my stylist, Cyndi, sent, and today I'm sharing three of the five items that were in my box.  The first is this Brixon Ivy lace detailed blouse.  I love the cap sleeve style, and the lace detail is so pretty, especially on the back.  It's a piece that can easily be dressed up for  special occasion, but I decided to pair it with these Kut From The Cloth boyfriend jeans which were also in my box.  You all know how much I love my denim, and boyfriends are my go-to style for the summer since they are comfortable on a hot day, so I was happy to see that these were included.  I decided to dress up my boyfriend jeans by pairing them with the lace top, and a fun pair of heels.  I finished my look with this Street Style red clutch, the third item that was in my box, for a fun pop of color.  The chain strap is removable so you have the option of wearing it as a clutch or cross body.  I'd say it's the perfect look for grabbing drinks with the girls.

Included in your box is a card with suggestions on how to style each piece.  Such a clever idea!

Loving the lace detail on this blouse.

Above are the five items that were in my box.  On Friday, I'll be sharing a second look that I styled with these pieces, along with an update of which items made the cut.  So make sure to stop back to find out!

Red, White and A Little Blue Dress

Sharing a little Independence Day inspiration.  Can anyone else not believe that July 4th is only a week away?  A great way to dress for the holiday is by wearing a little blue dress, and a tank version makes a great option for a fun day in the sun.  The dress I am wearing happens to be one my favorite pieces to throw on during the summer, but it's from last year, and unfortunately no longer available.  I did however search high and low, and found this dress, which is very similar.   I also linked other great little blue dress options below.  If fact, I am in love with this swing dress, and thinking it needs to be added to my wardrobe!  To finish my outfit, I added a pop of red with my bag,  and a little white with my hat, for a fun patriotic look that I feel is not overbearing. 

Dress: Style Rack (very similar here)| Sandals: Old Navy| Bag: Street Level (similar here)| Hat: Target| Sunnies: Chloé| Necklaces: Sarah Chloe (here and here)| Bracelets: Vita Fede (here and here)

Wearing Roses + WW Link Up

Roses are red.
Violets are blue. 
I'm obsessed with this lace blouse.
How about you?

Okay, a bit of my geeky side coming out for you on this Friday morning, but there is just something about Fridays that put me in a silly mood.  I know it's the beginning of the weekend, but lets be honest, as a stay at home mom it's not like my life is any different on these two days.  Maybe it's the fact that I can drink as much wine as I want and not feel guilty about it (JK, but not really).  Anyway, remember when I mentioned that I had a little obsession with lace this summer?  Well I wasn't kidding, and this roses lace top is currently my favorite.  I mean, how gorgeous is the rose print and lace detail?  Because of the slight boxy fit, I paired it with skinny jeans, and my lace heels to balance out the look.  However, I'm thinking this top will also look great with my my white denim shorts and a pair of wedges.
