On #Twinning the Littles – a Mitz Accessories Giveaway

I have to admit, that I love matching my boys.
It’s probably obvious, since I post pictures of them twinning all.the.time.
But I just love it so much.
They are so close in age and I think it’s so cute when they “twin” or at the very least are coordinated.
Over the past 3+ years of dressing little gentlemen, I’ve had to work a little harder to find cute boys clothes, where I see girls clothes are 75% of every kids store!  I was excited to partner with the company Mitz Accessories  which features a new gender-equal kids clothing line – thought it would be fun to change up Brooks + Graham’s look and have a little fun with their clothes.
While twinning, of course.
Purple isn’t something we have much of in their wardrobe, not that I have anything against it – I just always reach for the blues, greens + grey {my favorite} and it makes matching easier since I usually have them in those colors. Ha! Those are also the colors I usually wear too, which says a lot about how I shop for everyone!


But purple construction vehicle leggings?

We definitely don’t have anything like that in our closet. They boys, especially Brooks, immediately loved them and I was pretty excited to add another color and have a little fun with these new pants too!

I sort of wish they had these in my size! Then we could triplet? Is that a thing?!

October Stitch Fix Reveal

Hello, Hello!

Another week and this time, I’m excited to share with you my latest Stitch Fix! It’s been a while since I had one but I requested one for our upcoming trip to San Francisco {thanks so much again for all your recommendations – keep them coming if you have any!} and this was an especially fun Fix to request because…..



// booties 

Yes, after YEARS of working with Stitch Fix and blogging about them, when I knew we were going to San Fran {which is where they are located} I let some of my contacts know and they invited me to stop by! I’M SO EXCITED!

So this Fix I requested items to wear on our trip and possibly when I come to visit Stitch Fix Headquarters! Woo!


I was so excited when I opened this box because I could immediately tell if was going to be a good one. Plaid, blues, greens, grey, denim, FUR, leather….pretty much all of my favorite things wrapped in a pretty Fix.


And don’t forget -> If you want to try Stitch Fix out for yourself, please use my referral link to sign up AND check out my Stitch Fix page {I need to update this, but you can always use the Search Button on the right side of the page to see newer ones!} to get caught up on all my previous Fixes!


Skies are Blue Emira Faux Fur Collar Knit Vest {$68}

This Vest.

Every time I look at it, I change my mind if I love it or not. The grey sweater part of it is really cool. And I think the faux fur makes it really different – I’m just not sure how much I will really wear it!


See, this picture makes me sort of love it.


Not really sure about it with the blue plaid, but I wanted to try it out for fun.

Ah! I go back and forth because I do think it’s cute! What do you think? Love or Hate?



Market & Spruce Catareena Mixed Material Zipper Detail Pullover {$68}market-and-spruce-catareena
This top I am going back and forth on as well. I LOVE the green color – and the zipper detail is pretty cool. Just not sure how flattering it really is {I chose more flattering photos – FYI} but I feel like it might highlight my “mama belly” more than I would like – I’m a little more into looser fit in that area at the moment. Dress for the body you have, am i right?



Edyson Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket {$88}edyson-maisha-jacket

This jacket would be better for me in a brown or grey. I have a similar leather jacket so I really don’t need something like this, BUT I do have to say that the front drape on this was sort of lovely.


It’s a cute jacket for sure.


Paired with plaid, because – why not?



Kut from the Kloth Boyle Two Pocket Top {$68}


This is pretty much my style. So much so that I “might” have something similar in my closet and I’m contemplating keeping it anyways. Ha. But I do need to check my closet about this one – I am finding I have a lot of plaid in there, but many of them are fleece and so much warmer than I have been needing this mild fall so far. This is really thin and light, not to mention I love the gorgeous blues. Possible keeper I think!

Totally would love to pair my green vest with this bad boy! Also – check out the blue plaid I’m wearing in my green vest post – too similar? Maybe? Possibly? Ah! Decisions!



Pistola Tory Distressed Ankle Zip Skinny Jean {$88}distressed-jeans

Like everything else in this fix, I am going back and forth. I sort of love the fit, am obsessed with distressed and really don’t have any denim this color. BUT I don’t reallllllly need another pair of jeans – I have so many I need to wear! BUT when you find a pair you like {for under $100}, it makes sense to keep them, right? Right?



This fix was a hard one for me – I really liked everything, my stylist Bianca totally got my vibe. I am just trying to be practical and narrow down what I really need and what I really will wear. When I first opened the box I thought I would keep it all! Now, looking through all the pictures of me actually wearing the pieces, I’m being a little more picky – which is good!


Now it’s the hard part!

I need your opinions to help me decide {if anything!} -> What to Keep! I’m on the fece about pretty much everything and would love to know your thoughts. What are YOUR favorite pieces from what I received in this Fix?! Please tell me what you think!

San Francisco Travel Reccomendations

** ADVANCE FOR MONDAY, JUNE 2 **A restored neon sign glows from the Ferry Building at dusk in San Francisco, April 24, 2003. The Ferry Building, a long-neglected landmark at the foot of Market Street where ferryboat commuters have shuffled through darkened corridors for years, has reopened as a bright new attraction for tourists and food lovers. The historic building is the latest in a transformation of the city's waterfront, which has blossomed since the quake-damaged Embarcadero Freeway was torn down.(AP Photo/Eric Risberg)

So as I mentioned in my – on weaning baby #2 post – we are packing up and heading out on a kid-free vacation in San Francisco in a few weeks! We are traveling with another couple and are all so excited, as we’ve never been to California {except for the airport} so it should be a good time. I’m REALLY pumped!

That being said, we are in the process of planning out our trip and mapping out our days to get the best use of our time there. We are going for 5 nights so we have a good bit of time to be out and about – But if you’ve never been somewhere before, it can be a little overwhelming as to where to start!

I wanted to put it out there to my fabulous blog readers for recommendations! We are looking for suggestions on places we should eat, visit, things to do.

We have Friday, Saturday + Sunday to fill up with plans and we have a all day wine tour of Sonoma already on the schedule. Don’t you worry, we WILL be hitting up wine country! Ha! Should we do Alcatraz? Redwoods?

Any favorite places to eat? What about any wineries you suggest we should hit up?

I would LOVE any suggestions you may have!

Trunk Club #4 Review – Part 2

I’m back today with Part 2 of my latest Trunk! Like I said before, I take a ton of photos with each review, so it’s a lot for me to get it all together in one post – not to mention, it’s a LOT for you too! I enjoyed spacing this one out and breaking it down in two post, especially because it’s 10 items!

To get caught up on Part 1 of this Trunk, check out yesterday’s post!


And if you want to get caught up, check out my previous Trunk Club posts:

my first Trunk  / Second Trunk Club  / Third Trunk {before our trip to Mexico!}

About Trunk Club: If you are interested in signing up for  Trunk Club yourself – please use my referral link and let me know what you think! Trunk Club is a part of Nordstrom, so you get amazing customer service and great quality brands you know and love. It’s $25 to get a trunk full of goodies and you can use that $25 towards anything you want to keep – so it’s pretty much free in my eyes! When you sign up for a trunk you get a stylist and you tell her what you are looking for – you are then sent a preview of what is going to be sent your way, which you can accept, remove and comment on what you like and don’t like so your trunk gets personalized towards you, before being sent your way! I love the little sneak peek, but seriously, who doesn’t love a giant box of clothing arriving at your front door?!


First up is the Sleeveless Lace Dress, which I wasn’t sure of when I first pulled out of the box, but I sort of dig it on.  I don’t have any immediate need for a dress like this, but isn’t that always the case? You can never find anything when you actually need it and when you don’t have a reason for a new dress, they are everywhere!


Alila Lace Cuff / Heels 


I love the burgundy lace with the nude and the black bow neck detail – I think it’s a really beautiful dress.


I thought it would be fun to pair the dress with the Over the Knee boots, I also received in this trunk, and I think it looks really cool. Makes it more Fall for sure! And even though the boots are brown and the dress has a black bow detail, I think the burgundy totally brings it all together! Do you agree?


Throw on a jean jacket to dress the look down and you are good to go!


Here’s a better look at the dress, the detail is really beautiful – what do you think about it?



Next is the Plaid Button Shirt in white + black. I really love the style and colors of this – such an easy look for Fall. You seriously can’t go wrong with this, throw on a fun statement necklace and you are good to go! plaid

This is so comfortable and I really think I would wear it a lot – the price is just a little high for me, as I think I could get something very similar on sale.



And then I got  the crewneck lightweight cashmere sweater in red/pink – it comes in a ton of other colors, but this was a really fun one for me. I think this is a great color for all seasons. Paired with some perforated flats I also received in this fix {more on them below} and I think it’s a cute, stylish, easy look. pink

Seriously, this is a great color. I’m just a little on the fence about the material, since I stay home with the boys, the cashmere sort of intimidates me a bit! Anyone else feel like that?


Ah! And I tried it with the plaid button down underneath, and I thought that was a fun little color pop too – what do you think of this look together?



And the last piece of clothing is this wool + cashmere funnel neck sweater, which also comes in a bunch of other colors + patterns.


I’m not really a turtle neck person AT.ALL. So this isn’t my favorite. I’m also not loving the wool + cashmere blend, because it’s a bit fancy for me and it’s so damn hot! I’m sweating typing about it. Doesn’t help that it’s 80* here in Philly, but still.

It did look cute paired with a scarf and/or a statement necklace though.


Item #10 from this Trunk are these Vince Camuto Perforated Flats – they come in a bunch of other colors too. This brushed metal/gold is really beautiful. And I’m in love with the Vince Camuto brand, they fit my feet perfectly.

Sadly, I’m not much of a pointed-toe shoe person anymore. I would LOVE these in a different shape – would be so cute as the perforation is gorgeous. What do you think about them?


So there you have it – 10 amazing Trunk Club/Nordstrom items that showed up at my doorstep. I got to try everything on, style it up and have a fun little photo shoot. If you don’t have much time to shop, don’t like shopping or find shopping with your children pretty much the worst form of torture –  Trunk Club might be for you!Please use my referral link if you sign up and let me know if you have any questions!
Now’s the fun part – what should I keep?
