My Toddler Gave Herself a Haircut

Olivia finally wearing hair clips
Ugh, it finally happened. My toddler gave herself a haircut! I'm sure this has happened to many of us. In fact my now 5 year old also took scissors to her hair claiming she wanted to have bangs. Fortunately for that episode I caught her in time to where the only damage was centralized to the front of her hair...easy fix with what she wanted bangs. (And those scissors are now hidden and out of reach).
Picture day...luckily before the haircut
I have a bit of mom guilt. I'm a bit of a helicopter mom. I'm like a shadow trying to see what my kids are up to. But this time around I let my guard down, which thinking back now I should have known better. We were at my dad's, and well he doesn't really have a baby proof home. So my sneaky 2 year old got the better of me when we were all having lunch. Seeing as she was done she and the 5 year old went to watch some tv, right in my line of sight. I must have been caught up in conversation with dad, when Madeline calls out to me, "mom, come see what Olivia is doing". I assumed that she was trying to climb something as that is her new thing. Nope I walk into the bathroom to find a ton of hair on the ground, I didn't even know she had that much hair! She was holding the (thankfully blunt ended) scissors so proudly, "look mommy". I didn't know whether to cry or scold her. I was finally able to get her to hair hair clips and bows (she must have been rebelling against it). 
I'm going to miss those hair clips
My first thought was Madeline must have helped, I mean she cut the back of her hair! Madeline denies, denies, denies. I asked Olivia where she got the scissors and she insisted that "Madeline climbed". At this point the damage is done so pointing fingers is really well pointless. I grab Olivia and sit her down, contemplating how I'm going to fix this. I tried to trim and give her bowl cut, but I quickly realize that she had cut pretty deep. I was going to have to find some real help.

Stitch Fix Review - April Box



I always look forward to my mailman dropping off my Stitch Fix box. I'm always wondering how big the box will be and what is going to fit in it. And I always cross my fingers that my stylist delivers a five out of five fix so I can take advantage of that 25% off.

Now that Spring is here I'm thinking about what I'm going to be doing for Mother's Day. I'm looking forward to a great dinner with the family. As far as my mom goes, I'll probably surprise her with some flowers. Who doesn't like getting flowers?! What are you planning for your mom (or yourself). If your still thinking you can always get her a Stitch Fix Gift card so she can try out the service. You know how fun it is to get stuff delivered to your house. I'm also already writing up next month's request to Katie, my stylist, so she can send over some great summer pieces. Vacation please!

Papermoon Englewood Lace Inset Blouse in Navy - $44
Cute lace detail on collar and a good length. The paisley is a nice print and I think it looks okay on me, but not sure its really my style. 


Skies are Blue Kendruh Layered Hem Knit Top in Teal Green - $48
I really like the the hem on this light sweater it adds a bit of asymmetry to the look. And the color is one of my favorites. This sweater can easily transition from spring to fall.


Kaileigh Felton Bell Sleeve Top in Blush - $38
When I pulled this out of the box, I was like no way, uh-uh. And then I put it on and I'm still like nope. But then I took this picture and I'm really loving how I look in it. Maybe my mirror was lying to me. I felt it made me look wide, but It really is pretty. What do you think? Keep or pass?

Stitch Fix Review - March Box

Ahh, Spring is in the air...well it should be. While trying to take these photos it was cold and windy, but I just kept imagining myself somewhere warm. Anyone have plans or already go somewhere for Spring Break? Ours isn't until April, and I'm still looking for one of those last minute deals to somewhere warm, sandy, and all-inclusive - A girl can dream!

So with that in mind I asked my Stitch Fix stylist to send me some tops that would work if I decided to go somewhere warm, but could also work with layering if I had to stay behind in the much cooler Chicago temps. I also wanted to add some prints to my wardrobe, florals and boho vibes. If you're ready to try out Stitch Fix, go ahead and use my referral link. All you have to do is fill in your profile information and what you like and dislike, your body type, and you'll get matched up with your own stylist. Plus you never have to keep anything (but you'll lose out on your styling fee), or you can keep everything and take advantage of the 25% discount! Something you like but doesn't fit? Exchange it! And now they offer fixes in Plus sizes and for men!

Renee C Tucker Split Back Top in Blue $38
Love the print on this top, but not sure it flatters my body type. I kind of feel it makes my hips look wide (well maybe my hips are wide, LOL). I do like how the color looks with white jeans. A cute alternative for less here.

Stitch Fix Review - February Box

Oh-oh, how did I forget to post about my my February box from Stitch Fix?! I must have been super excited to wear my fix. February's fix came during a busy birthday season. Having a birthday that falls at the end of the month just means I get to celebrate into the next month. I was busy going out with friends and family wearing my new clothes that my review must have slipped my mind. How long to you tend to celebrate your birthday for? I might be a little extreme when it comes to my birthday, LOL, celebrating for two months is norm, right?

For my stylist I pinned some casual outfits and sent her a note telling her I was looking for clothes to that were comfortable to chase my kids in and were going to be good for Spring. I'm so ready for Spring to be here. Chicago was teased for a couple of weeks with some unseasonably warm weather, but that went away last week and it snowed, and rained, and today we are officially in Spring and its gloomy. Yep, typical Chicago weather. Are you ready for Spring? What do you plan on adding to your wardrobe? 

Skies are Blue Becky Cutout Detail Blouse in Orange - $44
My stylist knows I like bright colors, so seeing this blouse made me happy. I loved the pattern and way the orange popped. I paired it with burgundy pants to have some of the darker color on the blouse stand out since I was wearing it in the winter.  Target has a cute tank top that is similar here.
