Modest Monday and a Link Up!

We had a fun weekend spent with family, and I actually had the chance to go out running (with a little bit of walking thrown in) for 2.5 miles early one morning. It was awesome! I’ve been working on getting out slowly running more, and I love the chance to clear my head, be out of the house and listen to music while I run.

I wear the modest athletic skirt that we sell and it’s SO wonderful. I can stretch, run, and even swim in this skirt and it holds up beautifully. Highly recommend it if you are athletic! You can wear this to the gym and stay modest!

LulaRoe Pink Nicole Dress. It's super bright and cheerful, and is a great knee length dress that is comfortable for everyday wear.

So..I’ve kind of joined the LulaRoe fan club. I’ve even considered becoming a consultant, but wow! Startup costs are not cheap, and we are still trying to save for a house! This is the Nicole dress, and here are my honest thoughts about it…keeping in mind that I bought this with my own money, I’m not a consultant, and have no personal interest in promoting this company for you. 🙂

First- what I love.

I love how comfortable this dress is. The fabric is so soft and snuggly. I love the cheerful print, it makes me feel happy to wear this dress all day. I really like the sleeve length.

What I’m just ok about…

If you have a mommy tummy (meaning weight that just won’t fall off in your tummy!), this dress isn’t the most flattering. If I stand up straight and tall, and wear Spanx under it (yes, I have spanx that I got from Zulily, they are a mom’s best friend), I feel ok in it. Notice I said just ok. If this crazy weight would ever go away, this dress will be awesome!

Two other things that are just ok – the neckline is low for me. I haven’t played around with a cami under it yet, but I really need to. I wish it was a few inches longer, but I’m ok with this length if I’m careful.

Curly hair with a Mini Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. They work so great for holding hair back, and are pretty!

What I Wore

LulaRoe Dress – I was invited to an online party and purchased it through a friend’s party. You can join the group here and see all the inventory!

Shoes – ThredUP (You can get a $10 credit to ThredUP if you are a new customer, I seriously LOVE this store for gently used clothing!)

Flexi Clip – Of course, it’s from Lilla Rose! Being a consultant with this company has been an amazing experience.

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural foundation and Smashbox  eye shadow and blush

My Third Stitch Fix Box Review!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I received another Stitch Fix in the box this week, and wanted to show you all what I got! I’m still trying to decide on one item and I’d love to know what you all think!

First of all, if you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s a service where you can sign up, fill out a custom profile of what style you are, and then a stylist will personally pick out 5 different items to send to you in the mail. You pay $20 for the styling fee, but if you keep any item that $20 fee goes toward the item.

Every outfit comes with a styling card, that shows two different ways you can wear each item.

It’s not for everyone, but I especially love it for busy moms who can’t get out to shop for themselves a lot, or for those who just hate to shop! 

Here are 4 of the 5 items I received. I didn’t take pictures of the racerback top I received, it honestly made me look pregnant and I wasn’t interested in sharing the picture on here. Needless to say, it’s going back. 🙂

Don’t forget that you can pin any of these pictures on Pinterest if you have a Stitch Fix Pinterest board!

Skies are Blue Delila Embroidery Neckline Knit Top in Red color from Stitch Fix.

Skies are Blue Delila Embroidery Neckline Knit Top– $54.00

I love the cheerful colors of this top, and it goes with our Rainbow Denim Skirt so well. I thought about keeping it, but there was actually a small rip on a seam, and I just decided to send it back.

Gilli Sanora Knit Maxi Dress from Stitch Fix! This navy blue polka dot is really cute with a side tie, and comfortable knit top.

Gilli Sanora Knit Maxi Dress – $78.00

This navy blue polka dot is really cute with a side tie, and comfortable knit top. I added a cami under it, and the denim jacket. I love the polka dots, but didn’t feel it was as flattering for this mommy-of-six-children-with-mommy-tummy. I’ve realized I need a few gathers in a dress. Back it went.

Gilli Anwen Jersy Dress from Stitch Fix! This is a really cute summer dress, but it's shorter than what I like. You could put a skirt extender under it!

Gilli Anwen Jersey Dress – $64.00

This is the dress that I can’t decide if I should send it back or keep it! I’ve been trying to stay away from buying more black clothes (thanks to the Dressing Your Truth Program), but I love the style of this dress.

It’s much shorter than I would ever wear out. I cropped the picture, but you can get an idea of how short it is (a few inches above my knee). I’m trying to decide if I should get a skirt extender, or just send it back. What would you do?

A perfect find from my latest Stitch Fix Box! A Gilli Betheny V-Neck Maxi Dress in navy blue, with vibrant colors! It will be great in the fall and winter with a jean jacket!

Gilli Betheny V-Neck Knit Maxi Dress – $78.00

This was the awesome item that I’m totally keeping from my box! I love the colors, the fit, the length, really everything about it. 🙂 I had it pinned on my Stitch Fix Pinterest board, and my stylist saw it so she sent it along. Hurray for a good stylist!

So there you go! If you want to try Stitch Fix out, you can schedule a box here, and even select the date of when it will arrive!

I was really excited to get another Stitch Fix box in the mail this week! It had been awhile since I had ordered a box, and decided to get one before I go to a blog conference next month. I’ll do a full reveal tomorrow of what I was sent, but this maxi dress is one item I received and I *love* it!

I’m still trying to find the time to get a review written of the Dressing Your Truth program (hopefully soon, I’ve been so busy homeschooling!) but this dress totally fits my type! I’ve been more diligent about only getting clothing that goes along with the color code for my type, and these cheerful colors are perfect.

Turquoise Tranquility Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose! Make a cute ponytail that will hold up all day long with a flexi clip!

I curled my hair using hot rollers in the morning, and pulled it back in a ponytail using a medium Turquoise Tranquility Flexi Clip. We took these pictures in the evening, and I hadn’t touched my hair all day! I even took a nap, and this flexi clip stayed put all day. So thankful for these clips!

Heart Flexi Clip

Lilla Rose continues to be an item that we use almost daily in our house! Well, the girls and I. 🙂 And for good reason! It takes just a few minutes to fix our hair and having it looking so nice for the day. During the summer heat I’m wanting my hair up, as well as my 8 year old daughter that has really thick hair. The flexi clips are what we always turn to, because they work so well.

Don’t believe me? They have a super awesome return policy if you somehow get a clip and it doesn’t work for you!

Did you order the wrong size of flexi clip? Returns and exchanges are simple to do!

I’m loving these new leather 8 clips! They have a nice tight hold in your hair, and you can even mix and match hairsticks for a totally new look.
