Stitch Fix Unboxing #7- April 2016

Oh man, I am SO behind on getting this fix up AND I am missing pictures so no pretty clothing stack picture today!  I have been SUPER busy with my Facebook group Daily Deals by Pink Rose Mama (feel free to click on the link and join the fun!) and honestly blogging and Stitch Fix have kind of fallen off.

But I am getting back into it, I promise!  Let's just jump right into my April fix!  I asked for a shirt only fix.  I was looking for shirts to transition into the spring that would be good for a stay at home mom but that could also function as a date night top.  My stylist, Lisa, sure did deliver and it has been really fun to see her "get" my style as my time with Stitch Fix has gone on.

Here we go....

Skies are Blue Keiko Crochet Neckline Knit Top-  I had Pinned this on my Stitch Fix Pinterest board and was excited to get it.  Unfortunately, when I tried it on I though it did nothing for me.  The color was awesome but the shape just kind of fell short.

Verdict: Returned

Dex Ramuz Lace Back Blouse-  This was another selection that Lisa found on my Pinterest.  Again, I was thrilled to get it.  It is sheer and has really funky elements that take me out of my comfort zone.  The front has a zipper all the way down and the back has top to bottom lace down the middle.  It would be great for a date night or girls' night out!

Do you love my photobomber?!
Verdict: Kept

Skies are Blue Joslyn Keyhole Top-  This one I was NOT excited to take out of the box.  It just seemed plain and like the million things I already own.  However, I tried it on and fell in LOVE with the color.  I wore it around, debating back and forth.  Still, cost is a factor with doing Stitch Fix and it is getting warm out so I started to question how much use I would get out of it.

Verdict: Returned

Loveappella Lolla 3/4 Sleeve Woven Back Knit Top- Ok, spoiler alert: LOVE!!  Love, love, love this one!  It is exactly what I was looking for.  Simple enough to pair with leggings and play with my kids but interesting enough that I look stylish at preschool drop off!  Plus, it is comfy.  Oh, SO comfy! Lisa hit it out of the park with this one and it is already a staple in my wardrobe.

Verdict: Kept

Daniel Rainn Yaya Embroidered Detail Top-  When I was debating what to keep and send back, this was one that my friends and I saw differently.  They all said "for sure keep!" while I was more undecided.  The fit and material are gorgeous but something about it just is not my style.  

Verdict: Returned

There you have it!  My April Stitch Fix is in the books!  Although it was a 2/5, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing what Lisa had in store for me and I cannot wait for my next box!  I hope you enjoyed it and I hope to see you all on my deal page getting some good deals in between fixes!

Not familiar with Stitch Fix?  Here's how it works...

My inner Pinterest hasn't really been around lately so I decided what better way to cover that up than sharing one of my most Pinterest-worthy endeavors to date: Ryan's Dr. Seuss themed 1st Birthday Party!!
Dr Seuss 1st Birthday party
I had SO much fun planning and executing his party!  The details were pretty simple but everything just came together.  I think he enjoyed it (although his 2nd and 3rd birthdays DEFINITELY have not been up to snuff)!

Hello There!

Um, is this thing on?!  It has been FOREVER since I updated my page and I feel horrible about it.  I *think* about it all the time but life has been busy!  You all loved the deals I was finding on my Facebook Fan page so much that I have been devoting time to that!  It is fun...but time consuming.  

Other than that, life with a now 3 year old and almost 1 year old has been super sweet but busy.  Oh, so busy.  I will spam you with a few pictures and a promise that I will update this page way more frequently!

The hubby and I took a much needed vacation sans kids!

Had a great Easter!

Kiddies are BFF's, as always!

We have ourselves a walker...and a climber!
