Hey loves! I am excited to share the Cleo Madison online shop with you all today! Your new online “destination for cute modest clothing” they have a ton of the cutest dresses, tops, even swimming suits that you guys will love! I was contacted by their company to choose an item for review and I chose this fun ‘Susie Floral Pocket Dress‘ to take for a test run.

First this dress. Isn’t she a pretty color!!! And with a floral pattern that seems to be so trendy right now.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that it has pockets!!! What mama on the go doesn’t love a good pocket for your cell phone, an extra fruit snack, etc.

It has a great modest shape to it, a higher neckline, sleeves and a shin length skirt. Plus the material it’s made out of is SUPER soft and comfortable! It’s a dress you could very comfortably wear all day long.

I give her two thumbs up!!!

The Cleo Madison site… You guys. They have some of the cutest stuff. It took me forever to narrow down what I wanted to choose to review. I’d love to get this shirt, this swimming suit for next summer, and this floral maxi for fall… Just for starters. ;)

Once you’ve had a second to check out the Cleo Madison site, I’d love to know what you would choose!!!

Learn more about Cleo Madison on their Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Google+ accounts.

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes, as always though, my opinion is 100% honest and 100% my own!

Have you tried Stitch Fix yet? In case you haven’t heard of it, they’re a company that sets you up with your own personal stylist based on a questionnaire you fill out about your style preferences and then any Pinterest boards you share with the styles you like. Check out my style pin board here, if you’d like an example. ;) I decided to try it out because I STINK at shopping for myself. I always lean towards quantity and low cost over quality so I end up with meh pieces that never last me very long. I am hoping to be able to slowly build my closet into something I am excited to look through in the morning.

So this is my second round with Stitch Fix, you can see my first Stitch Fix review here. This time around, my stylist, Haley, sent me some really fun pieces! Here’s what I kept, what went back and why.

Stitch Fix Review

{Clockwise from top right.}

Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf {RETURNED} – Such a pretty scarf. The bird print was pretty and fun for summer, but I am the worst about wearing scarves. I live in AZ. It’s hot. I hardly wear scarves in the winter, so I couldn’t justify a pretty scarf I know I’ll never wear.

Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan {RETURNED} –  LOVED the color of this cardigan and it was soft and comfortable but I have several cardigans that I rarely wear. Back to the hot in AZ thing… It’s just not that practical for summer.

Rosemont Crochet Trim Top {RETURNED} – Another pretty top, but the shoulders were just too tight. Even with unbuttoning all of the buttons on the neck I had trouble pulling it up over my head.

Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse {RETURNED} – I loved this blue blouse and how it looked with the grey cutoff pants. But it’s Dry Clean Only. There’s not a dry cleaners within three hours drive of where I live. I know… rural living. Boo! I added a note to my stylist that dry clean only can’t be a thing for me unless it’s a really awesome piece I’d wear for special occasions or something.

Brayden Cargo Skinny Pant {KEPT} – I was scared of these skinny pants, because I NEVER wear skinny anything. But once I got them on I LOVED them! I liked them cuffed a little bit to look like capris more than pants, but still so cute!

OVERALL Review of Stitch Fix #2 – So this round was a 1 for 5, but still, I think that things are going in the right direction. Everything I was sent was super cute, just not the right fit, or not something I could justify. So take a second and check out Stitch Fix, cause if you join I get credit to buy more cute goodies! ;)

I was SO, SO excited to get my first Stitch Fix in the mail this last weekend. Made my whole weekend more fun trying on the clothes and showing my family and friends what I had received. So here is a break down of what I received, what I kept and what is going back. If you’d like to join me in trying out Stitch Fix, here is my referral link! ;)

Please pardon the bad cell phone shots, we took these in a hurry one afternoon. Next time I’ll try to do better. ;)

Stitch Fix #1 
Top left:
Messi Lattice Neckline Top {RETURNED} – I LOVED this shirt. I loved the style, the fit. It was the perfect compliment to the coral shorts. BUT I found a teeny, tiny tear in the fabric on the one side and for this price I wasn’t going to buy a damaged item. So I sent it back. Seriously so disappointed and I hope that my stylist sends me a replacement or something similar in my next fix. I did contact Customer Support and they offered me a discount if it could be repaired because they didn’t have any others on hand, but I’m afraid it wasn’t repairable. :(

Karla Textured Shorts {KEPT} – Another LOVE! These shorts fit perfectly, they are a bright pop of fun color for summer and the textured front makes them even more eye catching! Keeping them in hopes my stylist will send another awesome shirt to wear with them or that I’ll find a good one in the meantime somewhere.

Top right:
Reyna Printed Maxi Dress {KEPT} – The print of this dress was so pretty and the fabric soft. Seriously SO comfortable! Honestly, I was unsure about keeping this one but my sister, Kayli and friend, Claire, talked me into it. It’s cute paired with a cardigan for special functions or cute by itself for a summer dinner out.

Bottom left:
Lilla Crochet Detail Top {RETURNED} – I really like the print and the fabric of this shirt, the crochet detail made it even more pretty. But I just didn’t like the shape. With the spaghetti straps I felt like I needed to wear something under or over it to be put together. Back it went.

Bottom right:
Daisy Distressed Denim Overall {RETURNED} – So I am not afraid to admit that I have always been a country girl… haha! But overall shorts are not something I feel like I can pull off. I tried them on, of course, but the shorts themselves didn’t fit well and my husband would have disowned me if I were to wear them in public. But cute distressed denim shorts are hopefully in my future!

OVERALL Review of Stitch Fix #1 – Really, I feel like my stylist, Jamie, did a great job for my first fix. She’s still getting to know me and my style, but she has already made a great effort to help me out of my t-shirt rut! So thanks Jamie! Can’t wait to see my next Fix! And friends, for you real, you should check out Stitch Fix, cause if you do I get credit. Just saying. ;)
