Friday


TGIF! I am so ready for the weekend. This week and the upcoming weeks are totally swamped with things to do, sometimes I am barely hanging on. The closer summer gets, the longer the weeks feel. Am I alone in this? Anyway here is a little update of my week and my latest Stitch Fix!

1. MIA CULPA
I wanted to start out by apologizing. I try to be really tuned in to writing these posts and engaging with the blogger community but in the last two weeks or so things have just been super busy around here. With working on home projects, family commitments and things picking up at work I feel like I barely have a moment to breathe. These next couple of weeks will be equally as busy with a trip to Portland over Memorial Day weekend and shortened weeks at work as the school year ends I will basically be pulling my hair out. I wanted to apologize to those of you who have taken the time to read and comment on my blog. I so appreciate it and although I have not had the time to return the favor I wanted you to know that I read everything and so enjoy it. I promise when things slow down I will return to normal :) 

2. PAINTING
Our closet project is coming along. This week we put two coats of paint on the walls. We bought a light grey. It is a small room so figured a dark color would not suit it well.  Unfortunately it looks like a light blue right now :(. I hope when we put the shelving in it will show up more grey. For those of you who don't follow me on snapchat (user: mcainmoss) you should know I hate painting. It is a small room, but I just hate it so much. It takes forever and it is so repetitive. If I never paint again it will be too soon.



3. TRIP PLANNING
Next weekend we leave for Portland. One of D's friends from high school is getting married and we are excited to head out there. We have always wanted to go there. A couple of years ago for our anniversary we went to Seattle. In retrospect we wished we had stayed a few days longer and drove down to Portland. Once we realized the wedding would be near Portland we knew we had our chance. We also managed to twist the arm of some of our friends (yay) so they are coming too. I am so excited! If you have ever been to Portland and have any 'must sees' let me know!

4. WEEKEND PLANNING 
This weekend is going to be super busy. Friday is D's band concert. He plays in a community band and it is his last performance before he stops for the summer. Saturday we are going to Art-a-Whirl, which is a art festival in Northeast Minneapolis complete with music and beer. I am so in! A couple of bands we really like are going to be there in one of my favorite local breweries. Stay tuned on my snapchat for updates. Sunday D is jumping out of a plane, eek! I am very nervous about this. Be sure to stop by Monday for the updates.


5.STITCH FIX
I got another Stitch Fix a couple of weeks ago. It.was.so.good. Seriously, my stylist is amazing. She really takes in my feedback and I am always happy with the results. It was pretty successful so let's get to it.

1. CREATIVE COMMUNES SEBASTIANNE BLOUSE



Let's face it, I am a sucker for a flowy blouse. Add a little cutout and I am there! I really loved this. It's hard to tell in the photos but the colors are mosty blues and purples. A unique pattern. I have not found a similar pattern so when looking for similar blouses I definitely came up empty. Only problem with this is I have a lot of flowy blouses and I loved basically everything else. I knew my sister would love this and with the discount it was a good deal. I asked she wanted it and she did. Sold!


 2. BAY TO BAUBLES VELMA FANNED FRINGE NECKLACE

I told my stylist I was going to a wedding this month and was in need of some jewelry to wear with it. The gold fringe this necklace is very thin and lightweight. Perfect for summer. I also love that you can make it short almost like a collar, or longer for a different type of top. I have been wearing it non-stop lately. It's a gold fringe necklace so it basically goes with everything. What's not to like? Mine. 

3. NAKAMOL MARIETTA BEADED TASSEL PENDANT

This I really fell in love with. It is hard to find darker color jewels in Spring and Summer. I told my stylist that my dress for the wedding was navy and she nailed it. I have wanted a tassel necklace for a while and struggled to find the right one. Typically tassel necklaces have been metal fringe, reserving the string tassels for bracelets. I really like it this way because it is unique and allows for more interesting color. I will probably wear this one to the wedding, if not it will go perfectly with countless tank tops all year round.

4. PIXLEY DELORES ZIPPER DETAIL MAXI SKIRT





When I saw this on the preview card I was really confused. All I saw was "pencil skirt" and got frustrated as I have no reason for a pencil skirt. When I opened it up  I realized how wrong I was. I hve a couple of maxi dresses but no skirts. I love that this lays flat around my waist. A lot have a ruched, fold over waistband that adds to my already not so slim mid section. The flat and high waist cut is so much more flattering for me. The zipper detail and high slit are so cool. I have never seen anything like it. It also fits like a glove. When you find something like that, you have to keep it.


5. GENTLE FAWN LAMONT CUT OUT TOP


This top I was not sure I would love so much. It is hard to see in the picture, but there is  a faint pattern which is really gorgeous. What sold me though was the back. I love the cut out. It a strange way it reminds me of a spine and ribcage. Maybe some people would not think that is cool but I do. I like that I can definitely wear it to work in the hot summer months. It will also transition well to Fall and Winter with cardigans and jackets. 

See? Another successful fix. Thinking of joining up? Click here.
