fashion friday or something

ok, so after a year of not doing stitch fix and almost dying, i finally ordered again. praaaaise. now, 3 months post baby bod and i have some LB's still hanging on but, the problem is that i can't stop eating halloween candy. and sitting in my stretchy pants because it's so dang cold. that combination isn't really as helpful to losing weight as you would think.

here's how it works: stitch fix sends you 5 items, you pick what you like, then send back what you don't. when i know i'm getting my fix, i don't buy clothes. so actually it saves me money? ha. well, at least that's what i tell my husband. after a while of getting clothes, your stylist really gets to know you and what you like and then it's really hard to send something back. sometimes i cry while packing it away. insert drama emoji masks.

so here's what i kept.
um, elbow patches will always have my heart. i'm not generally attracted to hot pink but i thought this was a subtle nod to my inner tween.

stripes. striped on walls and on clothes. i am slightly obsessed. but i like the little moto twist. it's like, i'm edgy but i'm still afraid of actual motorcycles. or something. 
this denim is magical. it's a boyfriend jean and the stretch is changing my life. i like just a little peep of the ankle because i'm saying, i have some skin under here but you don't get to see it because i'm not married to you. or also, you're not the boss of me. you don't know my kids. 
i have no idea what i'm typing right now but i've committed to not deleting anything. 



ok so going with the moto theme again, this little number is actually from eshakti.com. i picked something i wouldn't normally. a peplum top and a bright blue. but the royals were winning and i felt like it was calling my name. now i have something to wear in the hot summer at the royals game. wait. maybe a little too warm. but i can show my royals spirit all winter long with this cute jacket. (hunter pence wears ugly jackets.)

what i like about eshaakti is that it's all completely customizable. you can make the waist small and the top bigger or vice versa. you make it for a long or short torso or have the sleeves go shorter or longer. it's sort of amazing if you don't fit into the normal sizing of it all.

and lastly, i had penelope join me in this fashion post because of the good people at onethirtyoneTees sent us this super great t-shirt to remind us of the importance of adoption. and hey, it's national adoption month too. 
(can you even handle this pose right now?)

"Our company provides quality organic tees for children while helping families fund their adoptions.
Half of all of our profits will be given to Lifesong for Orphans, an organization that is committed to bringing joy and purpose to orphans. We would also love to work with you through fundraising to help raise money for your own adoption."

pretty awesome. 

happy fashion friday or something.

    1. Not handling it all. Locking her in a castle for her life. Those stories always turn out well.

  3. Love the striped moto jacket especially, but it all looks great on you! Are you growing out your hair? Ok, so a couple of weeks ago my husband and I were at the KC IKEA (we live in MO, but not esp. close to KC) and on our way out, a very sweet lady asked my husband if he could help load her stuff...we end up talking as Aaron is loading...I find out she and her husband go to Redeemer, where her husband is on staff...and long story short, I really, really wanted to ask her if she knew you, but then I thought that was a little weird. So I refrained. Also, yes, GO ROYALS.

  6. Mind Blown that we wrote "Fix" posts on the same day. Confession: I have never loved the SF stuff I've seen...UNTIL NOW. I want every single thing you showed. Those jackets are KILLING ME. If you ever tire of them, please donate to the Elkhart IN Goodwill.
