New Mama Style |::| The Maxi

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry4 Comments

My mornings these days before work are non-stop. I get up early so I can let the dogs out and have breakfast (usually a smoothie) and a cup of coffee because I need to have a few moments to myself before the day really gets going. Then I jump into the shower and get cleaned up and ready for work, pack a lunch for myself and sometimes one for Joe, too, before I start to wash and prep bottles for … Read More

Stitch Fix July Review

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry21 Comments

Right after returning from vacation I had a new Stitch Fix box to welcome me back to real life. I’ll admit, it helped a bit in softening the post-vacation blues and was a fun surprise when it arrived at my door yesterday morning. Since I haven’t decided which items to keep and which to return, I was hoping you might be able to help me with this month’s box? I’m super torn on what items to keep! Let’s dive in… … Read More

Stitch Fix June Review

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry5 Comments

It’s been so long since I’ve done a Stitch Fix review; I can hardly believe it! If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it’s an online clothes delivery service. You fill out a style profile and get shipments of hand-picked clothes to try on in the comfort of your home with clothes and accessories in your own closet. I’ve been getting Stitch Fix shipments monthly for the last couple years and have really enjoyed most of the things that my stylist … Read More

An (almost) New Momma’s Beauty Routine

In Fashion, Pregnancy by Madison Mayberry4 Comments

I may not be an expert on all things beauty, but I love doing beauty posts and reading about blogger beauty routines. Anyone else with me? Since we’re in baby countdown mode, I’ve been thinking a lot about how my beauty routine fits into my new momma routine. I am fully aware of the fact that I’ll have less time to devote to getting ready once baby arrives, so my strategy has been to invest in really great beauty products … Read More

Shopping with Golden Tote

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry4 Comments

A few weeks ago the Golden Tote team contacted me asking if I would be interested in trying out their personal shopping service.

Fill out a style profile on their website outlining your likes, dislikes and sizes. 2. Decide on the … Read More

Stitch Fix October Review

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

It’s that time again! Another Stitch Fix review. I’ve been a bit delayed in getting this review up, but I’m excited to share what I received in last month’s box. I had a pretty off-base fix for the month of September, and I was happy to see that this month they matched me back up with the same stylist I’ve had for a while. I was also super excited to hear that Stitch Fix now carries a limited amount of … Read More

Wearing Pink with Skechers

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry3 Comments

My family, like a lot of families, has been touched deeply by cancer. I don’t think I’ve ever really mentioned it on this site, but when I was in middle school I lost my grandmother to bone cancer and a few years later my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Thankfully, my dad is many years post-surgery and cancer-free. Skin cancer also runs in my family and I have an aunt who had breast cancer, and all there really is … Read More

Work It Out

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry14 Comments

You guys, let’s get honest for a minute. No one told me that when you get pregnant it’s not just your stomach that gets bigger; everything gets bigger! Honestly, I’m working every day at embracing those changes and loving my growing body, but putting on old clothing that doesn’t fit the same way anymore doesn’t do much for my self confidence. This has been especially true when working out. I immediately went out a bought a size up in some … Read More

Stitch Fix June Review

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry3 Comments

Another month, another Stitch Fix review! Stitch Fix has really upped their game for my last two fixes and I’ve been super pleased with the items in the boxes that arrived at my doorstep. Since I’ve been sticking to a more scaled-back “unfancy” wardrobe, I’ve been trying to be super selective with the pieces I do keep from my fixes, only adding items I consider to be staples and things I can see myself wearing for years to come. Check … Read More

May Stitch Fix Review

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

Last time we chatted about Stitch Fix, I was quite unhappy. I felt that my requests had been ignored and I wasn’t getting pieces that really matched my style. After expressing my frustration, the team at Stitch Fix e-mailed me to get specific feedback (in detail) about what I was looking for in my fix and what I was unhappy about. Their customer service was fantastic! I explained that I was only looking for classic pieces and basics, that I … Read More

Creating a Capsule Wardrobe

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry8 Comments

You know those weekly roundups that people do on their blogs? I love them. Although I don’t currently have my own version on Espresso and Cream, I soak up the roundups from other people. Recently my dear friend Laura posted a round-up which included a link to the blog Un-Fancy. It was all about creating a capsule wardrobe. If you’re like me and have no idea what a capsule wardrobe is, then check this post out. As I was reading … Read More
