Festival Style from South Moon Under by Erica Valentin

I seriously love when new shops and boutiques open in my area!  South Moon Under is one of those shops!  South Moon Under has been around for years but I had never even heard of them until recently. I decided to check out the online shop and I am obsessed already! What's even better isjust opened 2 new location Atlanta and I could not be more excited, mainly because while I love online shopping.....I definitely prefer shopping an actual store location! 

Both stores are in locations I already shop at...Ponce City Market and The Avalon in Alpharetta so if you are in the Atlanta area you def need to check them out and trust me you will not be disappointed!

Why I Cancelled Stitch Fix

Happy hump day! Thank god the week is halfway over! Tomorrow is the Anthropologie fashion show down at Lenox Mall and I'm stoked!  Then I work from home all next week since my little people have spring break, YAY! Let's hope the remainder of this week goes by fast so I can bust outta here!

This post won't have any pretty pictures and it's kind of a vent.  Well Not a vent just facts really so feel free to comment with your Stitch Fix thoughts.  I know most of you love your stitch fix subscriptions and that's cool. I gave it a shot for about 6 months and finally I have decided cancel my Stitch Fix subscription....for good!

Being a fashion/style blogger my main goal is to "share" my style with my readers in hopes of giving them tips and inspiration.  I know myself as a reader of many other style & beauty blogs.......I look to bloggers for style inspiration or products referrals.  If they have a piece that I love or a product they swear by most likely I want to purchase the same item.

Tobi Sweater Dress

Black Tobi Sweater Dress

I always love finding new brands and shops online.  It's so much fun stepping away sometimes from the big box retail stores and finding fun unique pieces from smaller brands online,  Recently I found Tobi and their online shop has tons of adorable pieces to choose from! I ordered 3 adorable dresses and they are perfect for spring!  Two of them are sweater dresses and one is a cute floral fit and flare.  Today I'm sharing this black sweater dress.

Embroidered Mini Skirt - Splurge VS. Steal

Goodnight Macaroon Embroidered Mini Skirt

Ladies it's Tuesday ........and I had a vacay day yesterday for my son's birthday.  I'm so NOT ready to be back in the office and the fat that it's 72 degrees outside in January is not helping at all.  Thank God I am out of work at 2:00 so I can enjoy some of this gorgeous weather.

Now that I have spring on the brain....Let me share with you one of my sick obsessions. EMBROIDERY! I know I'm not the only one either because it's been all over the fashion world since last year and it's not going anywhere anytime soon!

Now on to the mini-skirt deets! I know this post was titled as a "Splurge Vs. Steal"......but it's actually more of a post on where to get the EXACT skirt for less.  First let me just make a confession.  I own all 3 of these! I know .....I have a problem and I'm OK with that, but I want to share with you a little secret.  You can get all fird any one of these 3 skirts for an amazingly low price.  Remember a few months ago I told you about how many big box retailers just purchase the same items from wholesalers overseas and they really aren't exclusive to their brand?  Well here's a prime example.

So I never ...EVER.....stick to resolutions, but I do try to set  goals for myself.  Usually I try to be realistic with them too.  For example.  I curse....Sometimes A LOT.  So last year I said I would curse less because let's be realistic...If I said I would stop cursing altogether I'm setting myself up for complete failure in the first 5 minutes.  Well....I totally crushed that goal...IMO because I definitely don't curse as much as I used too.  I think that's also in part to being a mom and hearing my son use several choice words that convinced me to try to tame my own potty mouth :) Hopefully I will continue to improve in that area in 2017!

2016 was also all over the place with ups and downs but it was the year that I will always remember when I decided to dive head first back into blogging but not as a mom blogger as I used to be.........but as a fashion/style blogger which has always been a passion of mine.  I really decided to go for it and also decided to start our YouTube and growing my social media.....and I haven't looked back. I actually decided in November 2015 to start YouTube but didnt purchase vlog cameras until March of 2016 then started the channel the following month.  So far it's grown little by little but most because of my schedule and not being very consistent with it.  For 2017, I really hope to push myself even further so that so that I can post consistently on both channels we have as well as growing my other social media platforms.  So much so that I may just be able to get myself into a position to leave my current full time job by 2018.  So here are a few of my 2017 goals.....

Winter to Spring Transition with SheIn

Shein Clothing 0

Floral Maxi Dress Romper (SIMILAR) // Faux Leather Jacket // Black Tie Choker // Tie-Up Sandals // Denim Jacket // Gold Collar // Over the Knee Boots

Don't worry...I'm very well aware we a thick of winter but once the holidays are over....I start planning my spring summer wardrobe & Shein is a great site where you can find great pieces for a great price.

One of my favorite pieces you can transition from winter into spring and even summer is the Maxi Romper. You have the length of a Maxi Dress but it's open in the front with shorts underneath for a little added sexiness.  What I love about this is that the length paired with a a cute leather jacket will keep you warm in winter and then  it's warm enough where you live you can throw on some cute lace up sandals and a night light denim jacket for an adorable spring look!
Also if you shop now you can get this amazing deals

40% OFF $55 or 40

Hope you all had an amazing New Year! Early in the day we met up with some other YouTubers/Vloggers that live in our area which was super fun because our kids are the same coming soon!  Then that evening my hubby and I took the kids out to eat at Cheesecake Factory but unfortunately the food was awful and cold.  That was the first time we ever had a bad experience there but we will definitely still go back because we love it so much and I think they were just terribly busy,  Afterwards we had a chill evening at home.  My little guy crashed as soon as we walked in the door and my daughter stayed up to watch the ball drop and she also annihilated me in Pie Face showdown...HA!  All in all is was a great NewYear's spent with the peeps I love!

Now on to my outfit.......ya'll know whites are totally acceptable after Labor Day nowadays and I'm totally a sucker for white and blush......and of course anything ripped!  My blush pink sweater is from Target this year but I also got it in Mint last year.  The pumps are old 5 years old and I want to say they are from Payless but I can't remember so I linked several similar pairs! 

Let's make 2017 an amazing blog year and here's to hitting goals and blowing last year out of the water!
