Getting My Fix: Stitch Fix Review 12

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix – As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own. May contain affiliate links.

Hello Friends!

As you may know, I’ve been getting Stitch Fix shipments for a little over a year now. I have had a pretty wonderful experience overall with them and love being surprised every month with cute clothing that they think would look great on me! I found out I was pregnant earlier this year and we are so excited to welcome a baby girl into the world this summer. I am excited to keep getting Stitch Fix shipments while I’m expecting! Did you guys know that Stitch Fix offers Maternity gear? I reviewed my first maternity fix a few weeks ago. I love that they allow me to try on different sizes as my bump grows bigger and bigger without the commitment of purchasing something!  Stitch Fix Maternity  is perfect for getting a few hand selected items to match your style and body type. Take a look at the goods they sent me this month:


1: Just Black- Fleur Maternity Frayed Hem Denim Shorts- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Just Black Fleur Frayed Hem Denim Jean Shorts I asked my stylist to send me some modest short options. My due date is in August so I know I am in for some hot months to come… I really liked the style of these shorts and the length was great. Unfortunately, they were just too snug in the waist area even with the elastic maternity band. It was so tight when I sat down. I know I would end up not wearing them because comfort has become my #1 priority lately!


2: Mismu Maternity- Prisca Maternity Cold Shoulder Knit Top- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Misimu Maternity Cold Shoulder Knit Top with Black and White StripesTo be completely honest with you guys- I hated this top.. I don’t know if it was the material being slightly ribbed and itchy.. the way the stripes accentuated the growing bump (in all the bad ways).. or if it was the fact that I really don’t love cold shoulder tops… either way this one was a firm no from me.


3: Berry Jewelry- Jacoby Fringe Pendant Necklace- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Berry Jewelry Jacoby Fringe Tassel NecklaceI also asked my stylist for some tassel inspired jewelry. I have a few earrings and bracelets with fringe tassels on them, and I have been really loving this trend! I liked the length of this necklace but I wasn’t a huge fan of the pearl center above the fringe. I knew I wouldn’t get that much use out of this one for the price so I sent it back hoping to find something a little more my style next time!


4: Gilli- Gabbiey Knit Maternity Maxi Dress- ReturnedActually Ashley Blogs: Stitch Fix Maternity Review of the Gilli Gabbiey KNit Maternity Maxi DressI love a good maxi dress in the summer, don’t you? They are perfect to combat the summer heat (without having to shave your legs, score!) This dress is a beautiful deep navy color and had a nice detailing on the shoulder and back. I opted to return this baby because the lenght was iffy.. if my bump got any bigger (which it will) it would no longer cover my sandals. Also, it had a cute crochet detail on the back but it did not cover my maternity bras which is a no-go right now.


5: Full Moon- Kassey Pocket Maternity Knit Top- ReturnedI really love most items I get from Full Moon. I feel like you become somewhat attached to certain brands when you use Stitch Fix frequently. Full Moon has been a good brand for me, and I honestly love most items they send from them! I liked this top a lot. It was stretchy and have a ton of give with the elastic sides. It would be great if only it wasn’t summer… I have no need for long sleeves right now. Cooking this baby makes me sweat just thinking about wearing this top in July!

Good Morning Lovies!

I am so excited to share a wonderful company with you today. Pink Blush offers some of the most adorable maternity clothes. I ordered a beautiful floral print maxi dress to wear for Easter, and when it arrived, I was head-over-heels in love with it! One of my biggest things lately have been maternity clothes that can grow with my bump, then transition into non-maternity later on. Versatility is key in the land of motherhood and Pink Blush has made it easier than ever to create a staple wardrobe with styles that can be worn during pregnancy into motherhood. I love that this dress has a wrapped waist. It allows for easy breast feeding once our little one arrives, but also is great for later down the road too!

After swooning over my new dress in a Monday Morning Coffee Post, Pink Blush reached out to me asking if I’d like to try out another beautiful dress. I really like the products they sell and shopped there on my own first- so I could not say “yes!” fast enough. Pink Blush sent me this cute maternity dress. I love how it is fitted to show off the baby bump in all the right ways. It is such a beautiful shade of saturated pink. I am planning on wearing it to my baby shower coming up next month in May.

White Elm Photography did such a great job with these maternity photos, don’t you agree? If you’re in the Central Ohio area give Natalie a call and tell her I said “Hi!”. She is also helping me with some fresh 48 hospital photos and our newborn shoot once baby arrives. You’ll be seeing some more of her amazing work soon enough!

Soft and Sweet Blush Pink Nursery Plans

This post may contain affiliate links that help to support and run this blog. All opinions and selections were made on my own.

Baby Girl is on her way and we could not be more excited to meet her. I’ve been feeling lots of kicks and flutters. It really makes it feel more real to feel her. I am quickly realizing that I am more than halfway through with my pregnancy. Its crazy to me that she will be here this summer. It is so exciting to look forward to the amazing changes coming our way.

I’ve been designing away at her nursery plans. I want a nursery that is soft and feminine, but also feels like it belongs with the rest of our home. I wanted a color pallet of white, blush and tiny pops of green. I took to Pinterest to help find some inspiration. Source

I really love the soft colors of this beautiful playroom. The room is mostly white with the soft blush colors pulled throughout. I love how they added the tiny little bits of green in the floral. This space represents the colors I want to achieve in the design perfectly!

Source

This nursery is so wonderful in so many ways. I love how she uses layers of white tones in different textures to create interest. I also adore the antique rug she selected for the room. I want to use one in our nursery, something that can hide stains but is soft for crawling and playing.

Source

This is a really sweet space. I really like how they kept the room very kid friendly but also made it feel sophisticated. In the first year, I will be spending a lot of time in the nursery and I’d like it to be a space that I can enjoy and relax in as well. I think this feeling is reflected in this nursery.

With my inspiration in hand, I started to compile my own nursery plans. I am registered with Amazon.com and Babies-R-Us. I looked through their options and registered for a lot of items needed (even the drapery, sheets, and accessories for the bookcase) It would be great to get some of the items from my loved ones. I kept the larger items really neutral and white and added color with some smaller accessories. The only large item that has color is that beautiful area rug. I already ordered it, and I love it. It has a lot of different pink tones and little pops of greens and yellows. It will really grow with our baby into childhood (and here’s to hoping the pattern hides some abuse too!)

So, what do you think? I am so excited to get going with this project! We have already ordered a few items like the crib, rug and chandelier. My mom purchased the cream glider for us from my babies-R-Us registry (thank you!!) Additionally, we will have a few DIY projects to tackle.

  • Add Shiplap to Walls
  • Make DIY Hair Bow Holder
  • Make Tree Stump Side Table
  • Change Out Chandelier
  • Make Book Holder

I am really looking forward to seeing how it all turns out! Be sure to check into Instagram to see progress updates!

Great Expectations Maternity + Giveaway!

While this post is sponsored by Great Expectations Maternity– As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own. Also a special THANK YOU to White Elm Photography for the wonderful photographs featured in this post!

The bigger my baby bump gets, the more I value my more comfortable maternity essentials. While it is nice to get all dolled up and go out for a date night my the hubby- its not how I’m living day-by-day. Working from home my sofa means I can get away with some yoga pants and a t-shirt almost any day of the week. But with my bump getting larger every week, my old staples are not fitting the bill- literally. I needed some super comfortable maternity clothing.

I found this amazing company called Great Expectations Maternity. You might know them for their helpful book series that has helped thousands of expecting moms-to-be from all of the world get information about babies development, nutrition and what to expect while carrying your bundle of joy.

Great Expectations has teamed up with Walmart to help even more expectant mothers. They are offering seriously comfortable maternity wear at seriously affordable prices. I’m talking jeans for under twenty dollars here people!

Chambray Top // White Maternity Pants // Similar White Wedges

Can you believe this cute chambray maternity top is less than $15.00?! Like seriously, its only $15.00. I love how it fits on my body, with a more modest neckline. The tie waist defines my baby bump so I’m not drowning in fabric. This top has been great to toss on with leggings and run to the grocery store. It has become a quick staple in my maternity closet this spring!Black Maternity Yoga Pants // Similar Maternity T-shirt

I have been living in these maternity yoga pants. They are made of sturdy but stretchy fabric that doesn’t become see-through when you bend over. Nobody likes that! I love that they have a large roll down waist band so you can adjust the fit as the baby grows. While they suggest buying your “pre-pregnancy” size; I wish I went up a size. I am wearing a small, but with my long legs and frequent washing (not kidding about living in these pants)- I want them to be a smidge longer. But, for just $14.00 I’m going to scoop up a few more pairs of these. I imagine they will be great in the first few months after the baby is born too!Black Maternity Tank Top Dress // Similar Jean Jacket

This is an amazing deal. This black maternity tank dress has the sweetest keyhole detail on the back and fits like a dream. Did I mention it is $12.79… RIGHT? This dress is so simple that it makes it super easy to style in so many different ways. Toss on a jean jacket and sneakers one day- layer on a printed t-shirt and sandals the next to create a completely different look! I am planning on wearing this dress through most of the summer! Check out some more amazing items from GE Maternity:

Grey T-Shirt Maternity Dress // Salmon Lace Detail Cap Sleeve Blouse // Short Sleeve Graphic T-Shirt

Now, without further adieu… a giveaway! Enter below to win a custom GE Maternity Book package featuring their Great Expectations: Pregnancy & Childbirth guide and Great Expectations: Pregnancy Journal & Planner, Revised Edition! These books have been such a great resource for me while I expect my first baby.

Easter Inspired Spring Table

Happy Spring!

Boy, does it feel good to finally have some spring weather! Its nice and warm here in Ohio, and my flowers are starting to bloom in the garden. It has created a bit of spring fever. I’ve been itching to switch out items around the house to give it a bit of a lighter and brighter feel. The first thing I really worked on was our newly finished dining room. My husband made our table from bits and pieces of other tables- creating this stunner. I am in love with how it turned out. We added this blue area rug right before Christmas and I’ve been really happy with it. The pattern hides crumbs really well, and the price for the size is a steal! For this Easter inspired spring table, I wanted a soft and pretty feeling with some natural elements. I started with our Pottery Barn table runner we had from a wedding gift. This one is similar! I took inspiration for the colors from these beautiful Studio McGee Watercolor Pillows. Everything about them just screams “happy” to me. I love the soft blues, greens and pinks. It was a fun color pallet to work with!

I picked up some strips of moss from my local craft store. I layered them with the table runner to add texture. I used simple white chargers, white plates and some hand-me-down blue and white china for the service wear. I used these lace trim napkins (on sale!) to echo the same linen in our dining chairs. I added the same moss, a tulip and some soft pink ribbon to finish off the look.Thanks for checking out my Easter inspired spring dining room! I hope you got some inspiration out of it! Let me know what you’re table is looking like- leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you!

Until Next Time,

Ashley

Monday Morning Coffee

Every week I ease into it by drinking coffee and getting inspired with pretty things online. Grab your cup and join me for this weeks Monday Morning Coffee.


While this post may contain affiliate links- As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

I am always browsing the internet and Pinterest for inspiration. There are so many amazingly talented people out there, doing such big things. I love sitting back early on a Monday morning with my laptop, with my warm cup of (now decaf) coffee. I sit, relax and enjoy what everyone else has to offer for pretty things and great ideas. Sit back with me and see what is inspiring me on Monday Morning Coffee! Follow along on Instagram with the hashtag #ActuallyAshleyMMC and share your pretty things too!

One:Designer Becki Owens knocks it out of the park with this fresh and light Master bedroom. The photo above is from the feature in Good Housekeeping Magazine. I really love that bed, with the linen and nail heads! I am also swooning over the white shiplap ceiling!

Two:

Patti from Old Things New created this really beautiful Easter inspired center piece for her dining room table. Can you believe it is faux flowers?! Oh, and that urn! So pretty. I’ve used the same lambs ear and peonies in my own arrangements before. I am now itching to create something even half as beautiful as this!

Three:How genius is this DIY headband storage idea from Live a Little Wilder Blog? Sarah said her daughters headbands were getting out of hand- so she glues some clothes pins onto left over wood… simple solutions are the best solutions. I see this DIY in my future for our upcoming nursery project!

Four:

There is something on my mind lately that I just can not kick. Maybe it is the winter blues, and the urge for spring to hurry up already… but I want some live plants in the house, bad. I have plans of fresh herbs in the kitchen and beautiful flowers on my bedside table. Then, I saw a photo of the most beautiful tree plump with fresh fruit. Now I can not get a Meyer Lemon Tree off of my mind. Stay tuned for this one!

Thanks so much for stopping in this morning and checking out what has inspired me to get going this week. Remember to share your Monday Morning Coffee inspiration on Instagram by tagging #ActuallyAshleyMMC.

Baby Bump- Weekly Maternity Photos

Wow, I feel like time has flown by with this pregnancy. It is so hard to believe that I am more than half way there! I really wanted to be able to look back at my first time becoming a mother, and wanted to find a way to document it. I love seeing how big my bump (and baby!) have grown every week and am so happy I got up the energy to do this! No joke, pregnant people are TIRED. #growingahuman

I picked up a large chalkboard from my local craft store. I used my Cameo cutter to design and but out vinyl stickers for the “base”. I knew there was no way that stuff was staying intact for 40 weeks so the vinyl has been great! Every week I simply erase the week, baby size and cravings and replace them with this weeks information. Keeping it simple is a great way to actually do it every week!

I grabbed this simple non-maternity dress for $10 at TJ-Maxx. It was super stretchy and long to accommodate all the stages of my pregnancy. I think having the same clothing on for each week makes it easier to see the changes in my body week-to-week. I change up my shoes and accessories based on my mood… hair and make up also shows my “feeling great” weeks from my “I need a nap” weeks! Its actually funny to look back now at my nap weeks!

If I could go back to our first week, week 10, I would change a few things. I wish I had a space for new things, or firsts. It would have been even better to see the first time I could feel her kick, or remember what weeks we had a sonogram done. I am happy I wrote out the week we found out the sex, it was very exciting to know! My mom mailed me that tiny tu-tu the second we told her it was a girl. Its so amazing to see the photo and be reminded of how much she is already loved!

Well, I’m only half way there with a lot of weeks to go. I’ll be sure to share the last half of the journey with you in a few months!

Until Next Time,

Ashley

Getting My Fix- Stitch Fix Review 11

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix – As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

Hello Friends!

I am so excited to share with you some amazing items I received in my very first last Stitch Fix Maternity shipment! I have been getting a much bigger bump the last few weeks and regular clothing is out of the picture these days. I am so happy Stitch Fix has started having maternity gear- and a huge selection of brands too! I requested some every day clothing and a dress to wear to my baby shower. The stylist Lindsey said they didn’t have a lot of dress selection right now so she sent me a maxi and some more casual wear. Let me show you what I got:


1: Loveapella- Carlita Knit Maternity Maxi Dress- ReturnedI really like Loveapella, and tend to get and keep a lot of items from them. However, I just was not feeling this dress. I don’t like purple all that much, and the print seemed very bright to me. It also was a tad short and could only be worn with flat sandals. I opted to return this one because I wouldn’t be wearing it too much, and who needs maternity dressed you’ll never wear taking up space?


2: Le Lis- Alston Cowl Neck Pullover Maternity Knit Top- ReturnedThis top was very very big. I mean, you can’t even see a hint of my bump in this top… The stylist Lindsey said it was getting great reviews for the postpartum  fit and suggested it with leggings. It was very soft and comfortable but the baby is due in August, and there is no way I’ll be needing a cowl neck sweater then so I sent this one back.


3: Full Moon- Peppy 3/4 Sleeve Maternity Knit Top- KeptThis cute, fun and soft top was just the ticket. I loved how it was fitted so it showed off the bump (don’t want people to have to guess, right?). It has gathered sides so it will stretch and grow over the upcoming weeks, but will also be great to toss on after baby arrives. I also love this one with white jeans for the summer! I kept this one for sure!


4: Market & Spruce- Cindra Crochet Cargo Vest- ReturnedI wanted to love this vest so badly. I have been searching for a great army green vest for a while now and never really find anything. I loved that this had little crochet details around the pockets and neck. This one was just a little too big and I worried it would be really too big after the baby arrives. I wish it had a cinch at the waist or something to accommodate, but it didn’t so I returned it.


5: Romolo- Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace- Returned

Man-oh-man. I had pinned this necklace on my Pinterest Page a few times and I really love it. I was so excited when I saw it in this shipment. Unfortunately, when I opened the adorable paper they had it wrapped in, I saw that the chain was broken. Stitch Fix has a great return policy and I could easily get a replacement- but now I am worried another one would break too. I am rough on my necklaces, ya’ll. I sent this one back, and it hurts.


Thats it folks! I was so excited to get my first maternity fix! Even if I only kept one item, it still was nice to try stuff on and see what was working or not working for my ever changing body. I was able to give some pretty specific feedback for my next one, so hopefully I get some more stuff to love! Happy to share with you guys- check in again soon- or follow along on Instagram and Facebook!

Until Next Time,

Monday Morning Coffee

Grab a hot cup of joe and get inspired with

me for today’s Monday Morning Coffee.


While this post may contain affiliate links- As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

I always think browsing the internet and Pinterest on Monday morning is such a great way to ease into the work week. I like to take my time on Monday mornings, drinking a hot cup of coffee and browsing pretty things that inspire me online, so take a look at what I’ve been into this morning.

One:House Beautiful is showing off 80 Patio and Outdoor Rooms. Now I have to figure out a way to cram all of these amazing-swoon-worthy-dream-spaces into my backyard… One of my favorite from their list is this lanai. It is a classic vision of my blue and white dreams. You can see more of this specific Florida home from another House Beautiful article. All of the heart eye emojis.

Two:Did you guys know that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi live in the most beautifully curated home? Architectural Digest has an amazing spread of their rustic California abode. How casual are those Emmy Awards tucked into her 19-century cabinet? How come my office doesn’t look like that?

Three:I am just getting to the point in my pregnancy that I simply can not squeeze myself into non-maternity clothing anymore. But, maternity clothing seems so expensive for something I’ll only be able to wear for a short period of time. I’ve been really into finding items that can be both maternity and non-maternity once the baby is here. I ordered this floral wrap maxi dress online and absolutely love it. I am planning to wear it for Easter this year. Pink Blush has a ton of great transitional maternity pieces, that I can easily still wear while not pregnant.  Love!!

 Four:I’ve been loving Etsy shops for baby clothing as we await the arrival of our little girl this summer. EmmaStichCompany has some super cute baby leggings and onesies that I adore. I scooped up a few of them like this pink and coral digital floral print leggings with matching headband. How stinking cute is that?! Emma Stitch was also super amazing to work with when I had some shipping glitches- huge thank you for their amazing customer service!

Thanks for stopping in to see what I’ve been loving this morning! Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Pinterest to see what else I’ve been digging lately. I’ve also been sharing some snaps of our kitchen remodel over on Insta stories! Head on over to check them out!

Until Next Time,

Ashley

Getting My Fix: Stitch Fix Review 10

While this post is sponsored by Stitch Fix – As always, all of the comments and opinions in this post are my own.

Hello Friends!

I am so excited to share with you some amazing items I received in my last Stitch Fix shipment! Last week my husband and I finally announced our very exciting news that we will be expecting our first child this summer! We are so excited for this big change in our lives. Speaking of big changes… my belly is steadily growing each week. While I forgot to change my profile before this shipment arrived, I made sure to update and notify my stylist for next month to receive their new Stitch Fix Maternity gear! They have also recently launched Stitch Fix for Men and Stitch Fix Plus Sizes! They seriously have something for just about everyone now! Some of you have been asking my how exactly Stitch Fix works… Well, I got you covered! First create an account here. Fill out the style profile and sizing information. The more specific you are the better! You can even add a link to a style or fashion Pinterest board to show them what you love.  Once you complete your profile, set up a date you’d like to receive your fix. A personal stylist will review all of that information and select five items they think you’ll love. If you download the Stitch Fix App, you can edit your profile and track shipments right from your smart phone. I love seeing this beautiful box on my door step! Your first fix will arrive right on schedule. Open up your fix and take a look! They provide you with detailed outfit ideas and a personalized note from your stylist. You’ll have time to try everything on and decide which items you’re going to keep. There is a $20 styling fee which will be deducted from your total if you purchase anything! In your package will be an invoice which lays out the price of each item. You only pay for what you’re going to keep. If you want to return anything, just package up the items in the prepaid packaging and leave it for the post man to pick up! Go onto your app or the Stitch Fix website to check out, give feedback and schedule your next fix. Easy as that!

Another question I get a lot, is what is the average price per item in my shipments? It honestly depends on the brands they send and the item. A nicer jacket or amazing denim will run around $60, while a cute top might be closer to $30. You can also give them a price point in your style profile! Now, onto my fix from this month!


1: 41Hawthorn- Ayesha Textured Button Detail Pullover- ReturnedLook at that little bump! This sweater was cute, and comfortable. I opted to return it because I have so many white sweaters already, but it was a good one! I paired it with dark denim jeans an camel colored boots.


2: Pixley- Abriella Waffle Knit Cardigan- KeptHoly cow, this sucker is so comfortable. Like, really really comfortable. Its a great neutral dark grey and has become a great item to throw on over a plain t-shirt to run to the store this winter. I kept the same dark jeans and camel boots for this look.


3: Loveappella- Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt- Kept

I was on the fence about this one, but my husband convinced me to keep it. Boy, he was right! This simple purple sweatshirt has become a weekly part of my new “comfort-is-key” pregnancy looks. It is soft, light weight and easy to throw on with jeans. I am so happy I decided to keep this one!


4: Mystree- Kotor Plaid Front Knit Top- ReturnedI really wanted to love this one when I saw it in my box. I really did. I like plaid, and the material was great! There was just something weird about the fit on me. I’m not sure if it was my growing baby bump or these weirdly large armpits.. but I had to return this one.


5: Toms- Classic Slip-On Flats- ReturnedMy stylist sent me this pair of red Toms. I love the idea of Toms, and the amazing things the company does. I know most people swear they are so comfortable and love theirs. They just seem to no have enough support for my taste. The canvas sides seem to rub slightly weird, and I do not like it. I sent this pair back because I knew I was not going to be wearing them too much.

Thats a wrap! Be sure to check out Stitch Fix if you’re interested! I love their services and would highly recommend it for anyone interested! Let me know what you thought of this shipment in the comments below. I love hearing from you!

Until Next Time,

Ashley
