Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical at The Walnut Street Theatre, Philadelphia

Last night I got to get all dressed up to go to the theatre!

After all the fun we had at Aladdin Jr. my friends at Walnut Street Theatre invited me back to check out their newest showing on the MainStage – Matilda the Musical!

// custom top / earrings / bag {on SALE!} / jeans / shoes {on SALE!}

I was so excited to be able to come back for another show and especially this one! I remember reading this book when I was a little girl and it was one of my favorites!

How fun is it that this classic book was turned into a musical?!

If you aren’t familiar with the story: I’d HIGHLY suggest making your way over to your local library or order it online and read this book.

It’s amazing. I’m planning on picking up a copy myself to read to the boys at bedtime, I know they will LOVE IT.

A little bit about the show: Matilda is the story of the courageous little girl with an unbounded imagination who proves that despite the odds, you can do anything you put your mind to—and change your destiny.

Even though this is based on a “children’s book” it’s not a show just for kids – Children and adults alike will be delighted by this Broadway hit and winner of 16 Best Musical awards!

Fun Fact: The 1988 children’s novel of Matilda recently celebrated its 30th birthday!

And aside from the amazing storyline – Check out that gorgeous set design, I love that even the bottom of the stage was transformed into a book! Such a nice little touch, another reason why I love the Walnut Street Theatre so much.

We were treated to Box seats and it was the best way to enjoy the show – with a great view and a cute cup!

If you are looking for something fun to do with friends + family this holiday season, I HIGHLY recommend checking out Matilda – it’s a perfect show for everyone with a great message, especially this time of year.

In our family we love to do experiences rather than gifts when we can – so if you are looking for something special for that hard to buy for person, or just anyone who would love an evening out – a night at the theatre is always an amazing idea! There are TONS of great shows lined up for the rest of the 2018-2019 season – check out the full list here!

And after this amazing Matilda – Jemma Bleu Greenbaum – got done singing her heart out, I got to meet her after the show. She is dripping with talent and so amazing to watch on stage – seriously, you MUST go check her out!

Great job, Jemma!

Thanks so much to my friends at Walnut Street Theatre for an amazing night and congrats to the cast of Matilda for an incredible show!

Stitch Fix Fall Style – Five of my Favorite Things in Fix #50

Ummm…excuse me while I have a moment because I just unboxed Stitch Fix #50!

How crazy is that?

I have been working with Stitch Fix since the beginning, have loved working with them for years, trying out their maternity pieces, Kids Fix and even got to visit their headquarters in San Francisco {which was awesome!}

But before you call me Stitch Fix obsessed, let me just say that I’ve had 50 over the past 5 years – throwback to my FIRST Fix – which doesn’t seem too bad to me! It’s so nice to get a little wardrobe refresh in my mailbox every 6 weeks or so!

My last Fix was in the summer, where I requested a Britney Spears Inspired Fix – so it’s been a while, I was definitely due for a delivery!

For this one, I requested cute, comfy and cozy Fall classics – which is exactly what I got!

********************

But first – all about Stitch Fix:

If you are new to the Stitch Fix scene, let me break it down for you – Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that learns what you like and makes it their mission to send you clothes you’ll love. They carry women’s sizes 0-24W and XS-3X, maternity and petite, men’s sizes XS-XXL and now even KIDS. There is something for everyone!

With Stitch Fix there is no subscription required, you can get a Fix anytime you want. Either on-demand or on a regular cadence – every few weeks, once a month or every season. You pay $20 to have your Fix curated by a personal stylist, which applies towards anything you keep. If you keep all five pieces, you get a 25% discount on your entire purchase! Shipping and returns are always free and returns are super easy- Keep what you love, send back the rest with your pre-paid shipping bag at any USPS mailbox.

Like I said, I’ve been a fan for years, I even got to visit their headquarters during our trip to San Francisco last year! And be sure to take a look back at all of my Stitch Fixes since the beginning!

Tinsel Hattie Two Pocket Button Down Top $44

// Pearl Bib Necklace

First up is this AMAZING Black and White Buffalo plaid button down. Wouldn’t you know this exact piece was missing from my wardrobe – the only buffalo check I had was in red – so it was honestly a perfect piece to add to my closet.

This thing is soft, has great length, I love the pocket detail and its easy to wear with jeans or leggings and it’s an easy piece layer with lots of different options because of the classic black and white.

Love.

********************

Market & Spruce Jahana Cargo Vest $68

Next up, the most perfect vest there ever was or will be.

Seriously.

It’s so good I have it already – and even wrote a whole blog post on it.

Seriously, if you don’t have one of these in your closet, you need to add one ASAP!

********************

Leo & Nicole Zaryn Cotton Blend Poncho Pullover $68

Third in my Fix was this amazingly soft and cozy poncho. I love this piece because of the neutral colors, the slouchy neck and the slit up the side. I have other ponchos in my life, but this one is way superior because of the length! Plus it’s a perfect grey/black+ white color combination!

// Rose Statement Earrings

********************

MIA Dunia Perforated Bootie $79

Next up – the booties! So cute and comfortable and perfect – so much so in fact that I have them and again – wrote a blog post on my love for them!  I have a different brand but they look and feel the same – I highly recommend as I wear them all the time with everything!

********************

STS Blue Kaori Distressed Frayed Hem Skinny Jeans $55

And finally, these jeans. I was so surprised with them, because they are so affordable, but look and feel so expensive! If I didn’t have a million pairs in my closet already, I would 100% buy these! They were awesome and I love the distressed + frayed hem detail – Distressed Denim is my favorite! 

********************

Now I need your help! I’m going to have a hard time deciding that to keep from this Fix! As always, I love your thoughts and opinions – would love to know your favorite piece {or two} from this Fix!

Happy Halloween from our Family of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – 2018

It’s here! It’s here!

It’s Halloween!

// boys costumes / parents sweatshirts

 TURTLE POWER!

I’m so excited to share with your our family Halloween costumes this year! Earlier this summer, the boys developed a random love for the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We were in a vintage toy shop and they discovered this Turtle Mobile {only the original one}, saw the OG turtles – and that’s our current obsession these days.

So I knew then, our family of four would have to be the Turtles for Halloween.

The boys were immediately on board and we’ve been excited about it ever since!

Four turtles, Four of us – I love symmetry. And I love a good family themed costume!

Perfect.

Even more perfect is the fact that I only had to throw on a sweatshirt, which happens to be super cozy and I know I will totally wear again.

Winner.

Like our costumes from last year, I love a good 90’s throw back. And I love even more that the TMNT are currently making a come-back, which is going to make Christmas extra awesome in this house!

So we are off to enjoy the holiday today with all the green, and all the turtle power!

I hope everyone out there has a happy & safe halloween!

For a little fun, here’s a look back at our costumes over the past few years!

And of course, I’d love to know – What are you and your kids going as this year??

Friday Favorites: #BabbleBoxxParty in NYC, Tired Hands Brewing & Ardmore’s Best Tacos + a $100 Macy’s Backstage GIVEAWAY

It’s Friday!

That mean the weekend is here AND it’s time to share my highlights from this past week! The past 7 days went by SUPER FAST. We are talking lighting speed. It seems like Hersheypark in the Dark was yesterday, but nope. That was last week and we’ve got a whole lot of fun + craziness packed into this coming week and weekend, so I’m sure it will be as much of a blur – but let’s get to it!

// Kara Knit Top / expandable bag /  shoes

I guess this week was so crazy because I took a trip to NYC right in the middle of it! I was asked to be a part of the BabbleBoxx  Holiday Influencer event in New York, so I took a train up to Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon for the evening. It was really nice to get away, even though it was only for a quick trip. It was incredible to have the opportunity to work with so many amazing brands and meet other bloggers in NYC!

For more on my trip, I’ve highlighted it in my IG stories – check it out here!

And now a moment for Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, PA – just outside the city, right by Suburban Square. For my beer loving friends out there, this place is a gem. Great little spot with or without the kiddos and the food is fantastic.

Like these tacos.

Seriously – taco perfection on this plate. And I like to consider myself a bit of a taco aficionado – because if they are on the menu, I order them.

These carnitas were delicious! Great beer and fabulous food. I’m in.

Hi, Jackson.

And now for the giveaway fun!

This week I’ve teamed up with Macy’s to give one lucky And Her Little Dog Too reader a $100 gift card, to spend at ANY Macy’s – in store, online or at their new Macy’s Backstage locations!

The new outlet store has approximately 10,600 sq. ft. of dedicated retail space and will live on the third level inside the full-line Macy’s.

There are now seven free-standing Backstage stores opened in the Northeast and San Antonio, TX in 2015 and 2016.  And now Macy’s has opened more than 100 Macy’s Backstage store-within-store locations across the United States, allowing customers to shop both merchandise offerings in one trip to their local mall.

I was so impressed with the selection of products at Macy’s Backstage! Look what I found, my favorite Fjallaraven backpacks at a fantastic price!
