Sunday Lately #73

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Please make sure that besides your BBQs and beaches you remember what this weekend is all about. I’ve dated soldiers and been friends with soldiers so please, take a moment to thank them or remember what they have done for our country.

Sunday Lately with Blogger Tribe

As usual I’m hooking up with the Blogger Tribe for their weekly Sunday Lately linkup. Care to join? Each week you get a bunch of prompts – it kind of vibes with those “Currently” posts. So here goes! This week’s words are:

Updating, Remembering, Needing, Wearing, Being

Updating – This blog regularly again! After that unplanned two weeks off I’m ready to get back into my scheduled posting. But I’m also planning another event in a couple of weeks so hopefully I can keep the momentum going!

Remembering – Besides our veterans/armed forces this weekend, I’m remembering everything I have to do to wrap up my last event and be prepared for my next event. EEEEK!

Needing – More than a three day weekend! It has been nice but oh lord do I need a vacation. Luckily Athens is coming up quickly and like I mentioned before we’re extending our stay (Dave and Sadie are flying out to meet me) so we’ll get a vacation then. Can’t wait!

Wearing – Not me, but Sadie rocked this adorable bathing suit at the beach today!


Sandcastles are serious business.

In the store we thought it was a strawberry but on further inspection it looks like its a watermelon. She insists its a strawberry so we’re rolling with it – whatever, it’s super cute! And she picked this over a Disney princess swimsuit so I was impressed/shocked.

Being – So thankful we live so close to the beach! We hit some traffic today but were able to get to our town beach with a decent parking spot and good beach spot and when we headed back home the highway was actually closed off because the main lots were full! My parents actually turned around and went home because they couldn’t get to the beach the traffic was so backed up. We’re close to its easy to get there and we can leave early and it’s not a problem. Woo hoo! I posted a bunch on Snapchat today from the beach – I’m laceybean83.

 

May Stitch Fix Reveal

March Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

It’s Stitch Fix reveal time! I actually got this fix before I left for my work trip but then that event sucked the life out of me so I didn’t get to write about it until now. But I’ve worn my keeps already! Whee! Here’s what Liz B, the most awesome stylist ever, sent me.

Collective Concepts Atalya Cold Shoulder Top | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

Collective Concepts Atalya Cold Shoulder Top | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

Collective Concepts Atalya Cold Shoulder Top – I was so excited when I saw this top in my fix. I asked Liz for a cold shoulder top to try and this was perfect! The pattern isn’t something I’d normally go for but once I tried it on I was sold. I also liked that it wasn’t the usual flowy, boho look that I usually see for this kind of top. And it is also shows the perfect amount of cleavage – not too much! Kept.

Brixon Ivy Linda Dress | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

Brixon Ivy Linda Dress | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

Brixon Ivy Linda Dress – This dress was really cute. I liked the colors and was a big fan of the embroidery but unfortunately I don’t find this style of dress flattering on me. Something about it makes me feel like it makes me look younger and not in a good way. The loose top? The waist? Unsure. For something I was only ambivalent about I decided it wasn’t for me.  Returned

Pistola Elouise Rolled Cuff Denim Short | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

Pistola Elouise Rolled Cuff Denim Short | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

Pistola Elouise Rolled Cuff Denim Short – I had seen some great shorts that bloggers I follow had received in their fixes so I was happy to see these in my fix but alas, they were a bit too snug. (Aka I really need to start that diet.) I asked Liz for a pair of Kut from the Kloth shorts for my June fix since their jeans fit me well so we’ll see! Also, how awesome is that tank? It’s so true for me haha. Returned.

DIBA Alita Embellished Thong Sandal | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

DIBA Alita Embellished Thong Sandal – These sandals were my first pair of shoes from Stitch Fix! And I am so, so sorry for the photo of my unpainted, unpedicured toes. SORRY. These sandals were really cute and I liked the beading detail but they weren’t a 100% great fit and for the price I felt like I could have gotten something cheaper at Target and cared less about the fit. Sadly, Returned.

RD Style Timbers Split Neck Tunic | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

RD Style Timbers Split Neck Tunic | May Stitch Fix Reveal | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

RD Style Timbers Split Neck Tunic – In my fix Liz warned me I may be skeptical about this top and when I took it out of the box I totally was. But when I put it on and styled it (barely as you can see from the photos) there was just something about it! It was comfy, weirdly flattering… I don’t know I just loved it on!  Kept.

My June fix should be here next week and I asked for another pair of shorts (hopefully by Kut from the Kloth) and also some army cargo skinny jeans. Not sure those are in season anymore, but I would love a pair. We’ll see what I get!

Our First Geocaching Adventure!

For Mother's Day this year all I wanted was a low key day. I am perfectly content just sitting around, lazing about. And we did a lot of that. (And also went to my FAVORITE breakfast/brunch spot. Mmmmm so good.) BUT it was also pretty nice out and we didn't … Click here to read the full post →
