What’s In My Suitcase /// West Coast Essentials

West Coast Essentials

Greetings from California, friends!

I’m at a work conference in Anaheim this week, and next week the hubby is joining me out here and we’re heading to Los Angeles for vacation.

I’m still trying to adjust to the time change but want to share the handful of things I absolutely had to pack for 10 days on the left coast.

Stitch Fix No. 8 Review /// Spring is Here

Stitch Fix No. 8 Review /// Spring is Here

Happy {almost} spring, friends!

I don’t know about you, but I am bursting with excitement for the warmer days we’ve been experiencing here in Charlotte, NC. We were in the 80s for most of the second-to-last week of February, and I don’t hate it.

All of this sunshine and my upcoming trip to Southern California had me wishing for a refreshed warmer-weather wardrobe, and the timing was perfect to schedule another Stitch Fix.

What’s in My Suitcase /// Packing for Our Christmas Honeymoon at Disney World

What’s in My Suitcase /// Packing for Our Christmas Honeymoon at Disney World

Does anyone else pack for vacation two weeks before they leave and spend six months after you get home trying to unpack?

I am 100-percent guilty of this. I just get so excited before a trip that I can’t wait to put my suitcase together.

If you’re reading this, it’s because we are heading to Walt Disney World for our Christmas honeymoon.

Stitch Fix No. 7 Review

Stitch Fix No. 7 Review

If you’ve been hanging with me for a little while, you might remember that I just reviewed my fall Stitch Fix box in October.

Typically, I wouldn’t schedule another Fix so soon, but Stitch Fix is waiving the $20 styling fee right now, and I was searching for a cocktail dress to wear on our upcoming honeymoon to Walt Disney World. So, since I had nothing to lose, I said what the hell and scheduled one more Fix for 2017.

I am certainly glad I did, too.

I know I have said this before, but this Stitch Fix box was hands-down my best yet. My stylist Cara tailored the Fix to perfectly match my style, and each piece fit me wonderfully — making it incredibly difficult to decide which items I would keep.

Plus, the note she left me was especially sweet. I love that she mentioned she read my blog post on how I honored my mom at my wedding.

How Does Stitch Fix Work?

How Does Stitch Fix Work?

It is no secret that I am a fan of Stitch Fix, an online personalized styling service. It is fun and easy to receive a box full of high-quality clothes and accessories in the mail, try on everything in front of my own mirror, and send back what I don’t want.

If you’re curious about how Stitch Fix works, here you go:

Stitch Fix Review & How to Get the Best Fix Possible

Stitch Fix Review & How to Get the Best Fix Possible

I recently received my fifth Stitch Fix and upon unboxing I realized that I have a love/hate relationship with this company. And yet, I keep coming back for more.

What I love:

  • The simplicity of someone picking out clothes for you.
  • You only keep what you want and send back the rest.
  • You try everything on in the comfort of your home.
  • The thrill of the surprise of what you receive is fun.
  • The clothes are (mostly) high quality and cute.
  • The stylist sends items I would never pick in a store for myself.
  • You can schedule a Fix anytime you want.
  • Your stylist takes notes from your Pinterest to customize the Fix to your style.

What I hate:

  • It can be expensive.
  • Sometimes the Fix is a complete wash, but you still feel obligated to keep something so you don’t lose your $20 styling fee.

Clearly, I listed more positives than negatives, so I actually do really enjoy Stitch Fix. Well, I enjoy the way I do Stitch Fix.
