Let’s start with the New Balance Brooklyn Half Preparty! Pretty much everyone is running the Brooklyn Half, including me! New Balance is hosting an awesome 4 mile fun run on Thursday, May 15th at 10:30AM for anyone who wants to really live it up! You’ll run from the 5th Ave New Balance Experience Store to packet pick up, but all fun runners get early access, so no waiting in line! Plus, they’ll pay for your metroride home! You can sign up on NB’s facebook page. I’m seriously considering taking a vacation day to attend!
I can’t believe the half is in two weeks! I hope I’m ready. My best long run was definitely in New Orleans–a trip I really need to post about. So hopefully warm weather is my key to success!
In other news, my birthday stitch fix came! I waited almost two months for this box of joy to arrive! The best part of stitch fix might be the anticipation! While I’ve really liked my first two boxes, I’m not sure what to keep from this box…and I need to decide soon.
First item, blue top with a deep v-back.
The color is great and it’s nice and light, but the front doesn’t seem to fit perfectly. It actually looks better on backwards. It’s too bad because I love an interesting back!
Item 2: Paloma Top.
Another fun back with scooping and buttons. I love the scoop back , but don’t love the buttons or the way it gathers at the bottom of the back. I could overlook the buttons, but I think the gathering calls attention to my butt. But I do love the color!
Item 3: Mint green pants. So pretty, but not flattering on me. I wish they were! I will say that I get a ton of wear out of my black floral stitch fix jeans.
Piece 4: Polka Dot, striped navy tee.
Totally nautical, which is totally me. That said, I have a lot of similar tops.
Piece 5: Anchor Necklace.
I love all things nautical, so at first, I loved this necklace. However, I’m not sure the quality matches the price.
I’m definitely keeping something, I’m just not sure what.
What did I love about this stitch fix? I think they nailed my style, I like interesting backs and details, I like things that are kind of nautical, cape cod-ish. I love the idea of colored jeans, but as I suspected, they don’t actually look good on me! Also, this was by far my cheapest stitch fix! I could have had the whole box for $160!
What didn’t I love? Well, these pieces weren’t particularly flattering on me. I also don’t really need super casual pieces, I own plenty.
