Maternity Capsule Wardrobe

In Fashion, Pregnancy by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

During Ainsley’s pregnancy I sincerely wish someone had sat me down and told me this piece of advice: When it comes to shopping for maternity clothes, buy high quality, classic pieces that you love and that make you feel great. Invest in a capsule wardrobe now and you won’t regret it. You see, I got trapped into the idea that pregnancy is only nine months. Why spend money on clothes you will only wear for a short period of time, … Read More

Diaper Bag Dilemma – Solved!

In Family, Fashion by Madison Mayberry2 Comments

I’ve always had a thing for pretty purses and handbags. For as long as I can remember, it’s been my go-to indulgence accessory. That is, until I became a mom. I dutifully committed to carrying a very traditional diaper bag when Ainsley was born, because most of the pretty, fashionable diaper bags I looked at just didn’t seem very functional. And while I might love fashion, I wasn’t willing to sacrifice function with a little one in tow. While I … Read More

:: My New Mom Style ::

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry4 Comments

Today I’m launching the first in a series of posts on my new mom style. I’ve been slowly revising my wardrobe over the past few months to fit my new life as a mom, work-from-home freelancer and recipe developer and manager of a home remodel that’s still very much in progress. Although I don’t have to report to an office every day, I do like to try and dress up a bit for the days that I’m working. Sometimes I’ll … Read More

Long Live T-Shirt Dresses

In Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’ve been slowly transitioning my wardrobe over the last couple months. Now that my postpartum body has settled a bit and isn’t changing every two weeks, I feel more confident that the clothes I buy will still fit two months from now. Add on top of that the fact that fall is here and I’m working a more casual job these days and my wardrobe needs have changed. This t-shirt dress is everyone’s friend. It’s comfortable (oh so comfy!) and … Read More

Help a Momma Out?

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry9 Comments

  I picked up a bunch of cheap little dresses toward the end of the summer to bridge me into fall and have been meaning to put together more of a formal fashion post. Alas, I’ve been spending most of my days working from home and when I’m not working, I’m either tending to a sometimes fussy baby (teething!) or covered in paint as we begin our home renovation project. Ainsley, on the other hand, thinks she looks mighty fine … 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

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

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 August Review

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry5 Comments

I can’t tell you how pleased I’ve been with Stitch Fix over the past few months. The last 3 to 4 fixes that I’ve received have been so much better than I could have expected, and I’m really glad I stuck with the service and looked past the couple of fixes that were less than impressive. I think one of the biggest changes has been the fact that I requested a new stylist and have really loved my new stylist. … Read More
