Last week, all of the elements were in place for the perfect storm: (1) potty training, (2) PMS, and (3) my first full week back at work in many moons. It is safe to say that grumpiness was abounding (for me, anyway) and I felt like while the rest of the world was starting the year off right tackling their new year's resolutions, I was failing miserably at coping with everything that came my way.
The good news is that we all survived the week relatively unscathed and I'm just going to thank God for do-overs and pretend today is actually the first day of the new year. The other good news is that potty training is going relatively well, though I think we've only made it one or two full days with no accidents. The hardest part of last week was passing the baton off to the daycare and having very minimal control over the whole process. I'm channeling my inner Elsa and attempting to let it go.
Some other good news: Brian gifted me a subscription to StitchFix for Christmas and I got my first shipment this past weekend! Let's pretend I'm a fashion blogger for a moment:
(1) blue top + (2) black skinny pants + (3) shoes
Verdict: I actually really liked all 3 items, but I was too frugal to keep them all, so I only kept the top. I already have a similar pair of pants that I've never thought to wear to work because in my brain, work pants should all be boot cut for some reason? Regardless, this has changed my mind.
(4) striped top + same pants
Verdict: This top actually came from my Pinterest board, but I didn't love the way it looked on, so I decided to pass.
(5) cardigan + same pants
Verdict: I specifically requested a tribal print cardigan so I was really excited to see this one when I opened the box. The first time I tried it on, I actually wasn't a fan because it was so drapey that I felt like it kind of swallowed me. But after some encouragement from my mom, sis, and Brian, I tried it on again and decided to keep it!
These were my favorite items from the shipment: sorority t-shirt from 2004 + yoga pants from 2005
JK, obviously, but I felt like sharing my fashionable post-church attire from yesterday with you all. You're welcome.
Overall, I was pretty pleased with my shipment, but I don't imagine I will schedule them to come very often because like I said, I'm too frugal for that. It was definitely fun to have someone else pick out items for me, and I especially liked the style guide that was included with it:
Colby and Clara heard about my new gig as a fashionista and decided to get in on the action...
Don't you love how the orange beak on the owl hat matches her leggings so perfectly?
