Stitch Fix Review 3 & 4

Hi friends! As you read this I will be on my way to the Aloha state for our family vacation. Yup, we are headed to Hawaii! Words can’t express how ready and in need of a vacation I am…although traveling with 4 small children may or may not be considered a vacation. We are sure to have some fun!

So I thought I’d do a fun Stitch Fix post. I am still in love with this service and also love seeing what other people get in their fixes. For those of you who haven’t heard of Stitch Fix , here is my first post about them and my second review. Since my last post, I have gotten two more fixes and realized I never posted pictures of my third box. Now I have just gotten my 4th box so might as well combine them!

So let’s get started! Here what was in the 3rd box:

1. Francesca Contrast Trim Button-Up Knit Shirt

This was cute in the box, but was very unflattering on. It was too bad because the material was sooooo soft. I would’ve kept it just to wear to bed, but otherwise…no, no, no.

2. Charlotte Airy Knit Drape Front Cardigan

As they know by now, I am a sucker for cardigans. This one is perfect for the summer. Super light weight and white!

3. Carlita Jersey Maxi Dress

I requested nursing friendly dresses. I love wearing dresses but with breastfeeding every few hours I’d basically have to take off a dress unless it was a v-neck or wrap, etc. This one met my expectations and the color is fun for the summer- perfect piece to take on our Hawaiian vacation. It’s sleeveless by the way, but I forgot to take a pic without the cardigan.

4. Jasmine Pleat Detail Floral Print Blouse

When I first saw this in the box, I thought “oh I’m keeping it” but it just didn’t look good on me. I kept trying it on because I loved it when I was looking at it, but didn’t like it as soon as I saw it on me. Don’t mind my black jeans. I wasn’t trying to style the shirt with them, I just happened to be wearing them so they definitely don’t help the situation.

5. Yola Abstract Print Faux Wrap Dress

Another breastfeeding friendly dress which I thought was really cute and would’ve been perfect for things like church or school meetings, etc. What you can’t see is that there is a lot of extra fabric in the shoulders and from the side was just too big because they accidentally sent me a medium instead of a small (it was marked wrong). When I contacted them, they said they had no more smalls in stock. No biggie.

So from box 3 I kept 2 out of the 5 items.

 

Stitch Fix Box #4

1. Carolynn Colored Cuffed Denim Short

I requested shorts and had no idea what kind they would send. I liked the light violet colored cuffed shorts because they paired nicely with what they sent as well as any basic t-shirt in my closet.

 

Please ignore the disaster in my room but I was in the process of cleaning up.

2. Alicia Abstract Print Pocket Fron Tab-Sleeve Blouse

I adore this print. It is so beautiful in person. It is a lovely lightweight material, almost sheer but not quite. Love it with the necklace they sent

3. Helena Layered Stone Bib Necklace

I don’t usually wear chunky necklaces like this simply because I forget to accessorize! I love this with the blouse they sent.

3. Rosco Floral Print Crochet Detail Tank

Absolutely love this tank. I requested something in lace or something floral and they combined my request to provide this lovely top. It will look perfect under a cardigan and slacks or dressed down with jean shorts.

Status: Kept

 

4. Adora Ankle Length Skinny Jeans

I wear jeans a lot here in Washington because with the exception of a few weeks in the summer, the temperatures are pretty mild here. I requested a light denim jean and absolutely love the way these fit. I actually had a lighter denim in mind, but these were still worth keeping. Sorry no photo because I got distracted packing!

 

Status: Kept

 

This box was a no brainer. Keep all and get the discount. I also had a gift certificate that I applied to this order! Yay for new clothes! Ok friends, I have no idea what my blogging schedule will be like on vacation, but please follow me on Instagram (nutritiousats) if you want to see what I am doing and eating in Hawaii!!!

 

Questions: Have you tried Stitch Fix?  Do you prefer shopping in person or having someone style you?


Love My Silk! Introducing Silk Almond Coconut Blend

I can’ t remember the exact year that I discovered I was lactose intolerant but it was over 15 years ago. I switched over to soy milk and cut back on a lot of dairy products. Now I can handle a lot more dairy in my diet than I used to (cheese, yogurt and cooking with small amounts of milk don’t bother me anymore), however I still don’t drink milk. I just never developed a taste for it and knowing I might not tolerate it as well as a non-dairy milk I see no point in trying.

Love My Silk! Silk Almond Coconut Blend | www.nutritiouseats.com

Silk has always been my preferred brand of soy milk, but you can also find their almond milk in my fridge as well. So of course I was excited to hear that Silk has two new products: Silk Almond Coconut Blend in Unsweetened and Original and Silk Protein + Fiber Almond milk in Vanilla and Original.

I set out to find one. I went to the commissary first because I knew they’d carry it at a reasonable price and the one I wanted, the Almond Coconut blend was sold out. I was annoyed of course, but I took it as a good sign! I headed over to Safeway and found it.

I found the unsweetened one which has 0 grams of sugar and only 35 calories per cup! It also has the same amount of Vitamin D and has 50% more Calcium than regular milk (45% of your needs versus the 30% of regular milk). That’s important if you don’t consume a lot of dairy products. The negative is that the sodium is 170 mg per cup which is about about 50 mg more than that of regular cows milk. It’s something to consider if you drink multiple cups or are closely watching your sodium intake.

Silk-2

The new Silk Almond Coconut Blend is simply that- an unsweetened blend of almond milk and coconut milk. It’s gluten, dairy and GMO-free like their other products. I loved the presence of the coconut milk- it was definitely the first thing I noticed.

And you still get a perfect milk mustache!

Silk-1

How would you incorporate a non-dairy milk into your diet? Just like you would regular cows milk. Since you can buy unsweetened varieties you can easily cook with them in savory dishes and if you have a sweetened or flavored one like vanilla they go great in variety of recipes such as:

Vegan Blueberry Pancakes

Smoothies

Apple Oat Muffins

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

Chocolate Oatmeal

This new unsweetened almond coconut blend is a great low calorie food and really versatile. Make sure to check out these Silk products and enter their facebook page HERE for a chance to win a coupon on your next purchase.

Friday Favorites

Nuttzo

Another week has flown by! My son had Vacation Bible School and my daughter is still in pre-school (it’s a year round school) so I spent the week chauffeuring the kids around. A visit to the Doctor for my lil’ guy who had a fever for a couple days, plus lots of errands getting ready […]


Asian Noodle Salad With Peanut Dressing

AsianNoodleSalad-1-2

The fun thing about being in charge of the food around here is that I get to cook whatever I feel like eating! Pasta with veggies tossed in a peanut dressing. That’s what I wanted. As I mentioned before, we had company over a couple weeks ago (our good friends from Texas) and when hosting any […]


The Project: IMMERSIVE FITNESS ™

I love group fitness. I am not able to do it all the time because it’s hard to commit to the classes while coordinating the kids’ schedules, but I love doing zumba, yoga, pilates, body pump- I am open to anything really. This year the group class I focused on TRX which was something different […]

Happy Friday! It’s been a good week! I might have overbooked the kid’s activities- flag football, cheerleading, gymnastics, piano, Vacation Bible School next week.

Pop Quiz: How Much Do You Really Know About Gluten?

GlutenFreeTitle

I posted this hilarious video to my Facebook page last month from the Jimmy Kimmel show where they asked some people in LA, who follow a gluten free diet, if they knew what gluten was and none of them had a clue! It’s pretty amusing (and embarrassing). A lot of people follow a gluten free […]


WIAW {What I Ate Wednesday} RD Edition

WIAW3

Hi friends! Can you believe I’ve never participated in a WIAW post? Jen from Peas and Crayons hosts it and it’s where bloggers write a post about everything they ate in one day and link it up every Wednesday- mostly because it’s fun but also to share ideas and inspiration. I am normally too scatterbrained […]
