My TENTH Stitch Fix

My TENTH Stitch Fix came last month. TEN! I can’t believe it!

If you remember I wasn’t at all impressed with my last fix. As a matter of fact, it’s the one and only time I’ve returned the entire fix. I had kind of forgotten I had another one scheduled until it was at my door step this time so I’m not even sure I had filled in any criteria but it was better style-wise.

Here’s what I got:

Here’s what I got:

Papermoon Jerrard Heathered Open Front Cardigan $47

septstitch6

This was ok. Kind of snug and while I do like the open front it felt a little too open.

Decision: RETURN

Renee C Katarina Knit Swing Dress $64

septstitch

Well, you know how I love me some stripes and this dress feels like wearing pajamas. The price point was a little high for a knit dress but with my styling fee in there it lowers the price a stitch. Plus, a vest and boots make this look SO cute!

Decision: KEEP

Hailee C Dayanara Button Down Top $58

septstitch2 septstitch4

It’s not me. Also, a little snug. Maybe I ate a big breakfast that day?

Decision: RETURN

Kut from the Kloth Simmons Boot Cut Jean $88

septstitch3

These were ok. Probably a stitch looser than I usually wear my jeans but they fit ok. That said I just splurged on some bootcut denim.

Decision: RETURN

Loveappella Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt $64

septstitch5

I actually love this style and have another sweatshirt from Athlete similar to it. I did feel like this one was a little snug though. I’ve hemmed and hawed about trying out the new Stitch Fix exchanges and exchanging it for another size. I’m not sure what the return policy is though and I want to make sure I love it in the next size.

Decision: RETURN

What did you think of my Fix? It wasn’t the worst but it wasn’t the best either. I know a few people who have become Stitch Fix stylists and might request one of them the next time I get a Fix but right now I’m not sure if I’ll continue or not.

My past fixes:

My First Stitch Fix
My Second Stitch Fix
My Third Stitch Fix
My Fourth Stitch Fix

My 5th Stitch Fix
My 6th Stitch Fix
My 7th Stitch Fix
My 8th Stitch Fix
My 9th Stitch Fix

Sever’s Fall Festival Celebrates 20 Years! *Giveaway*

Sever’s Fall Festival is celebrating their 20th year this fall and it’s no surprise to me that families love including them in their fall traditions.

severs

My family had the opportunity to visit Sever’s for our first time this past weekend. I am a big, huge fan of all things fall so the idea of checking out a new to us fall fest was a no-brainer for me.

severs2

We LOVED all of the events and activities available at Sever’s. From the corn maze to the corn pits, the jumping pillows and the hay bale maze, there is a TON to do at the festival.

One of my favorite things about Sever’s was that most of the special events and activities are included with the price of admission. There’s something about going somewhere and knowing the kids will have hours of fun and you don’t have to break the bank to do it. {Please note that while most of the activities are included there are additional charges for hayrides {$2} giant slide {$2} and pony rides {$5}

Additionally, there are lots of great food options right one sight. From pizza and nuggets to cheese curds and mini donuts. Of course, what would be a visit to a corn maze without some corn on the cob, too.

My kids had such a great time and we left exhausted from the jumping on the pillow, diving in the corn, feeding and petting animals, running through the maze and ropes course. We’ll be back.

severs11

One of the other things I loved about Sever’s is that they have  been family owned and operated since the beginning, with the family all on hand and working each weekend. Additionally, all the events take place near the family farm and property—property that was originally settled in 1890 by the first Sever Peterson who arrived in Minnesota from Sweden (Sever Peterson III began the corn maze in Shakopee).

Sever’s Corn Maze and Fall Festival is located adjacent to Canterbury Park in Shakopee.

Hours are Fridays 1-8 p.m, Saturdays 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Admission is $14 online or $15 at the gate. Children under the age of 4 are FREE.

Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions at Target Center

I have always loved watching gymnastics. I was never a gymnast myself but always wished I could do the aerial movements with the kind of grace we see displayed on tv. From time to time, my friends and I would “pretend” we were gymnasts with elaborate floor exercises that bordered on a dance so poorly […]
