Behold. I give you Fix 32.
I've been giving my stylist, Catherine, a run for her money. I'm in between sizes and stuff that used to work for me doesn't work so well now. I've gotten kinda picky because I'm only keeping the stuff I really really love. My hashtag I created on instagram is catching on...#lovingwhatwewearandwearingwhatwelove. I only want to wear stuff that makes me feel my best when I'm in it. She's really listening hard though and paying attention.
This fix was good. But the one I got in the mail a couple of days ago is REALLY good. I'll be sharing it in a few days to be caught up.
Sooo... this is February's fix.
First these jeans. I like them and they were so comfortable.
I kept them but am totally regretting that choice. Here's why..
You know that wonderful, magical stretch fabric that I rave about in all their jeans? Well it's not so wonderful if the jeans are a tad too big. I spend the majority of my time pulling them up when I wear them. Ughh. I knew I was taking a chance but I never dry any of my jeans at any time, so I thought throwing these babies in the dryer would shrink them up perfectly.
It didn't. They fit nice for the first couple of hours and then they stretch out and it's tug of war for the rest of the day. I've already lost some weight since these pics were taken so the situation is even worse.
Win some lose some.
Next was this sweater. I had asked for some of those oversized, super comfortable boyfriend cardigans or long duster sweaters.
She sent this and it wasn't exactly what I had in mind.
It's cute and all but I was wanted longer, bigger and softer.
This was a lot like cardigans and sweaters I already have so I sent it back.
It's a vintage whistle with an old hammered out coin with "live loud" stamped on it.
I wear it ALL the time. (thank you Tara. xxoo) It's such a great reminder to me of that passage in Psalm 40
"He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord." Psalm 40:2-3Love it! He's given me a new song and I want to sing it and live it loud!
I wore this and my SDJ tee to speak to a group of women last month about God's grace in my life and family. I love sharing my story that He is writing in my life and I praise Him each morning that He's not finished.
