School Starts, StitchFix, and Summer Boardwalk is Back!

Hey kids!


Is your FB feed turnt with back to school pictures too?   

Love it.   


We're 1st and 4th bound in these parts.    




I swear it was just yesterday that I was posting this last day of school pic....




Copious amounts of rain yesterday and the bus stop scene looked like this...

Rain puddles, umbrellas, and concerns about freshly curled hair.  The usual.  



Overall, these monkeys had an awesome first day.



What else?   




I know I haven't talked about it for awhile but you guys, I'm still getting it.   And loving it.


This month's Fix's....




Yes, the pic quality is no bueno.   It's been raining off and on for 40 days and nights, ya see.    The lighting up in here just didn't suffice and I had a short window of time to make it all happen, so this is what we're dealing with.

I'm a sucker for an open back anything.   My stylist knows this. Which I love.   Ps-  Does it make anyone else feel fancy to just throw out the term "my stylist?"      
Right?



So what do we have here?

1.  The wide leg jeans trend
2.   A coupla open back tops that are super duper versatile
3.  Seychelles wedges.     Love these because we've got a little lift without looking like I'm going to break my neck at any given moment.      Appropriate for anything from church to night time. 
4.   The good old Hawthorn studded Libson shirt.     I may or may not have this is multiple colors.  And want it in multiple more.



So how does it all work???  

Check out my previous post(s)...   

Exhibit A...








  I know lots of you have created your free profile but if you haven't, you can do it HERE.






 If you aren't familiar with how it all works…allow me to summarize the rules from last month's StitchFix review.  




Step One:    Go online and set up your profile.  It's super fun and easy peasy and you get to answer a bunch of questions about what you like and don't like.  You look at a handful of outfits and accessories and say yada or nada.  Even if you aren't ready to take the plunge, create a profile.   Because it's fun and I'm kinda sad mine is over.    To create your free profile, go here.  


Step Two:    Schedule your "fix."   Scheduling your fix will set you back twenty billzzzz….  However, this $20 goes towards your styling fee and more importnatly is a credit towards anything that you happen to keep from your fix.    Either way, #winning.


Step Three:    Rip that box open like a kid on Christmas morning.  But wait, before you do that, post the sealed box on the Insta and proclaim to the entire first world that your StitchFix is here!  Oh wait, that's just me.   #predictable.


Step Four:     Try on all 5 pieces in the comfort and privacy of your own home…with your own shoes, accessories, etc.  Loved this.

It comes with a special little card like this, which gives you awesome ideas on how to wear your loot.  Absolutely loved this and will keep the card for further assistance.   A great reference to have on hand.



Step Five:     Log into your account and "check out."   Decide what you want to  keep and what you don't.    Give feedback about what you liked and didn't.  This helps your stylist figure out how to best suit your desires for your next "fix."  Within three business days,  put your rejects in the postage paid envelope and drop it in your nearest mailbox.  No big.


Step Six:     Strut your yes's like the boss that you are. 



Okeeee dokey…. What did I get!?







1.    Maylynn Asymmetrical Soft Moto Vest-    KEEP



I didn't love this out of the box and then tried it on with the white flowy shirt you see here as well as a long sleeve casual dress and boots.    Loved this both unzipped and zipped.   Way fun and I could see myself wearing this well into spring/summer.





2.   Brixton Stone Collar Necklace-    RETURN




This was cute but for the price was just "meh" for me.   I have several collar necklaces and bib necklaces that are just as cute that cost me less dinero.  These are such trendy pieces that it just didn't feel worth the $32 for me.




3.   Daxton Floral Split Tank-  KEEP




I debated on this one as the little strap across the back is slightly odd.  However, it looked cute with skinny jeans as well black leather pants.      I also loved it under a blazer as well as a leather jacket.    I liked the originality of the split back at the bottom.      So at the end of the day, this was a keep.



4.   Shermineh Faux Leather Detail Ponte Pant-    KEEP





Again, something that I was unsure of when I took them out of the box.  However, I think these would be super fun for the holidays.   Love the "leather" detailing down the sides and these are actually much more versatile than I originally thought.   I can't wait to rock these bad boys.




5.  Chrisley Raglan Seam Sweatshirt-  KEEP





This is a great little throw on sweatshirt that's technically casual but could be easily dressed up.  I already wore this over the weekend with jeans and booties.    Plus, it's super cozy and we all know I love that cuz deep down I'm a granny at heart.  




So 4 outta 5….hollah!    You guys, I also haven't bought one clothing item at the mall or online since my last fix.  This is just way easy and fun for me at the moment.   So do I dare to say I'm saving money????   I'd have to crunch the numbers but it kinda feels that way.  


Sooo….if you haven't created your profile.  Do it HERE.    And if you've got a Fix on the way…I  need every single deet when that bish arrives.  I'm cereal.




Other exciting news.....


And they went away?

And I cried...

And sent out a SOS on social media around the world?


Ummmm.... check it out yo.


You guys, this is the bestest best candle ever.       The B&B has been throwing coupy's out left and right so if you do your homework or check your mailbox, you've  prob got a $10 off $30 coupon or something similar floating around.





What else?  


Contemplating a 24 Day Challenge?  

Or 10 Day Cleanse?

So are lots of others.

Apparently, we all had a little too much fun.

message me at advocarerunner1@gmail.com for more deets.

Curious about Advo in general?




Happy Thursday, friends!

I leave you with this.   Fabulous, yes?
