Editorial Note: This is a pre-scheduled post. I am on vacation to Utah this week and may not be able to release or respond to comments until I return. I will resume a normal blogging schedule September 10.
Once a month I like to show you what I wore in real life, because not everything I wear makes it into a fashion post. This month I spent a week at my daughters home in Illinois, but most of that week I was chasing a two year around so I wore active wear. Unfortunately I never got any pictures of myself wearing active wear. Life is always a little more crazy when watching small children and remembering to take a "selfie" is never a top priority. 🤣 But here are some photos and selfies I did remember to take.
This knit maxi dress you may have seen on Monday's "Grandma & Me" post. It's a super comfy knit dress my daughter purchased from Amazon about a year ago. I linked to a similar one on Amazon on Monday's post. I wore this gorgeous dress to a day in a park for a photo shoot with the kids.
My stretchy, spandex dress from Stitch Fix has gotten a lot of use this summer...which is exactly what I thought would happen when I saw it in my box. I actually consider this dress active wear because of the material. I wore it to the library then out to lunch with my "girls" and Baby Atticus. Alethea was so thrilled because she got her first ever "Munchkin Meal" all to herself. Usually she just shares the adults food when she goes out to eat. But on this day, I ordered a meal just for her mostly because Ashley and I didn't think she would want to eat what we ordered for ourselves. Oh my goodness, if you could have seen the expression on her face with the waiter set her plate down in front of her. It was priceless. Her eyes got so big, then she looked at me and her mom with this expression that said "Is this really all for me?"
It is not officially fall until September 23, but I like to start transitioning my outfits this time of year. It has already cooled off so much in Wisconsin, a lot of people are complaining about it because our summers are short enough as it is. So on this shopping day I wore a neutral outfit with a short sleeve cardigan. The colors are more fall-like, and the short sleeve cardigan kept me warm. Everything is old, except the sandals. I picked those up at Famous Footwear in Illinois for only $40. I've wanted a pair of Tory Burch Miller Sandals for years, but just couldn't stomach spending $150.00 for a flip flop. I was so excited to find this dupe by Report. They look EXACTLY like the Tory Burch brand!
I wore my new maxi dress from Stitch Fix twice already: once to church and the other to see a musical in Chicago. We saw "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". It was AMAZING!
This dress from Francesca's I wore to church. I have had it for years, and I always get compliments every single time I wear it. It was one of the best purchases I've ever made.
This is an outfit I wore on a date night with my husband. The top and skirt are from JCPenney (old) and the sandals are from DSW.
Have you heard the color of the year is "Living Coral"? This rusty/copper color in my top has been popping up in all the stores and everyone has been calling it by a different name. Finally, Pantone came up with the name "Living Coral" which I think describes it perfectly. I LOVE this color! I think it's so flattering and is perfect for fall. I purchased this top at TJMaxx. I can't find it on-line but they had it in both the Wisconsin and Illinois stores, so it's probably in a store near you. I wore this top to a park for a photo shoot with the grand kids (post coming soon!). I paired it with a pair of olive green linen cropped pants from JCPenney and my new Tommy Hilfiger sandals.
I received this top from Stitch Fix this summer. I didn't think I would wear it until fall because it's kinda heavy, but it was a cool day so I wore it with shorts out to lunch with my husband and shopping.
As always, I got a lot of uses out of my Stitch Fix pieces this month. Which outfit was your favorite? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy

Thanks Jodie! My trip was a blast!Delete
Lots of great outfits; our weather cooled off pretty fast once August hit too. I was kind of bummed that the hot, sunny weather was already behind us.ReplyDelete
Thank you! We just got home from our vacay out west where most days it was in triple digits. The day we returned home it was 57! What a shocker!Delete
Wether you wear short or long, it both looks fantastic on you Amy!ReplyDelete
All great looks Amy! You have such a pretty collection of dresses!ReplyDelete
My favorite look is the last one with the white jean shorts. Definitely something I tend to wear. My second favorite would be the navy vertical striped dress from stitchfix. But so hard to choose, you look great in all of these pictures!
Thank you! Most of my dresses are from Stitch Fix. They have the best dresses.Delete
The first photo is amazing, on a sofa in the park! Lovely outfits, my favourite is the floral maxi dress, an elegant look for going to church and the musical! The photos with your grandchildren are precious!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I love that photo too! And I'm so happy I got that maxi dress from Stitch Fix. I will get a lot of use out of it going into the fall.Delete
Hope you have a great vacation!ReplyDelete

They all look wonderful and your granddaughter is adorable! I guess my favorites are the Francesca dress, but I think because I love the shoes you wore with it so much, too, and then the denim skirt and white embroidered top. I hope you had an awesome time in Utah!ReplyDelete
Thank you Ruth! I had a great vacation.Delete

Hi Amy! How is Utah? Or are you back? and how cute is your garden furniture...you made it look elegant and refined. How many grandbabies do you have? I hope you're enjoying the week and am glad you linked up with us at the Style Six. See you again next week and maybe even on Instagram!ReplyDelete
I'm home from Utah, and it was amazing! Many travel posts about the trip to come in a few weeks. The garden furniture isn't mine, but I wish it was. The photos were taken at Cantigny Park in Illinois. I have two grand babies. Thanks for visiting!Delete
I wish it were cooler here, but our summer extends into Sept in NC. Love the lounge chair and your dress that your wearing. Such cute outfits - love the maxi dress! Your grandaughter is adorable and so cute she was excited about her happy meal!ReplyDelete
