Recent Stitch Fix Favs

So, as I mentioned, I am still feeding my Stitch Fix addiction.

My closet/wardrobe/life thanks me. I dont go out shopping as much (which is a plus for me since I’m not in love with shopping) and my wardrobe is updated monthly with at LEAST 2 items it seems, so that is nice.

And the biggest thing for me, as I have mentioned since the beginning, I am getting variety and stepping out of my comfort zone.

Since I have gotten THREE fixes since I last blogged, I cant really remember what was when/what it all was, what all I got/kept, etc.

The one I got mid-June was my 6th box (time fliiiies) and actually I ended up keeping all 5 items out of that one!

I figured at the very least I would share some of my favorite’s from my last 3 boxes since I wasnt around the blog to share as they came in.

I apologize because I dont even have my style cards handy to tell you the actual names of each thing, buuuuuut that’s ok, even though Margaret (my stylist) would be ashamed.

Oh, and dont mind the varying backgrounds – it was kind of between moving so I was all over the place (including a work bathroom selfie! #7).

#1 – bracelet. I’m actually NOT much of a bracelet wearer but that one is so perfect and summery!

#2 – the lace shirt. This came in my June box and it is something really unique for me because I dont have anything else lace like that in my closet! So cute. I have worn it once with a pair of dark jean shorts and sandals – adorable!

#3 – bird print shirt. You cant tell in the pic but it has tiny, subtle, purple bird shaped spots all over it. It is a real light satin material – super comfy!

#4 – summery dress. LOVE this one. The material is amazing and light and smooth. I like the funky print and then the neon yellow trim/piping on it is awesome – it almost kind of gives it a sporty look. I wore it to a BBQ a few weeks ago and got a ton of compliments on it.

#5 – sheath dress. Number 5 is my absolute favorite out my last few boxes. I just love it. It is navy and white striped, and I wear it to work frequently with Navy (or, believe it or) purple heels!

#6 – grey shirt AND the blue skinny jeans. Yeah this one is kind of a two-fer because both came in one fix. The grey shirt is UH-mazing. it is a really light sweater material and so light weight and goes with just about everything. The blue skinny jeans are the same Adora skinny jeans I got from them a while back in coral. I may have hinted a few times I would love another pair in blue or black – it paid off!

#7 – striped dress. I’ll have to snap a better pic of this one at some point, but when I first opened this one out of the box I was like, “hmm… no.” It almost looked a little vintagy to me which is not my thing usually. BUT, I know that I always have to try everything on because my mind changes– and once I got this one on I loooooved it. The bottom actually has some thule under it so it poofs out a little but its SO fun. I have worn this one quite a bit already actually!

Yep, I’m Still Alive; Nope, I’m Not Done Blogging

I love you guys and your emails!

I’m still alive, which I know anyone that asked that doesnt mean it literally. And if you follow on Instagram (@andreaoutloud) you see I’m still kickin and having an amazing/busy summer!

And for all of you that have asked (with a sad face, aww!) if I was saying goodbye to blogging – the answer is definitely a big fat HELLS NO.

But I totally see why people are questioning that though, because it seems like a ton of bloggers are closing up shop lately (I have commented on this recently also). Which is sad, but I can see it from their point of view too on why they are saying goodbye.

But seriously I love blogging and am not quitting. I am the opposite actually, I have been dying to blog but just havent had time, and I told myself a while ago I’m not gonna stress trying to do it because it is something I want to continue to be fun for me! Thus my long break. But here I am; this is my official declaration of “I’m baaaack.”

So with that being said, I suppose it is fill-in time.

As you know from my last few [scarce] posts, we kicked off summer with buying a house.


We closed mid-May, and spent Memorial Day weekend moving (ugh moving).

We’ve gotten all settled in for the most part, and I am happy to report we have most everything unpacked even. We have one disaster room that isnt put together yet (which will be our office) and that is where all the “random” stuff is thrown currently.


I plan to do a fun tour sometime soon and include some more deets since I’ve been a little vague about it (boring, I know). I honestly havent even gotten to really decorate yet. As you can see, we’re lookin a little bare in some spots – definitely have places to fill in.




And I love the neighborhood! Oh, brown dog is diggin’ the yard too.


After that fun-ness of moving and all that, the following week my friend Melissa came from out of state to visit for a few days.

Which of course was a blast. We went hiking…




…And to a vineyard (her first time!)





And we visited some of the old, historic areas of downtown also.

It was so good to take some time off and visit with her – and of course went by waaaay too fast.


And then LAST week, Torrance and I took a much needed mini-vacay (4 days) to Myrtle Beach. We decided we just needed a couple days of literally plopping down on the beach and nothing more.


It’s so nice not to have any damn obligations, even if it was only a few days. It was nice and rejuvenating.

I mean besides plopping down on our asses, we did play in the sand some (duh).



PS – “T n A” in this case means Torrance and Andrea, duh.


Other than that, I am up to the usual shenanigans. Still trying to get settled into the new house a little bit, thats always an adjustment anyway.

Oh, and by the way – I’m still enjoying Stitch Fitch….


…. and like I could leave you without giving you a picture of brown dog:



Okay, my break was good but I’m looking forward to being back in blog land!


  • Fill me in on your recent summer shenanigans!

Helloooo Out There

Oh my gosh guys.

How I have missed this place.

I really hope everyone’s Spring is kicking off marvelously! Things have been hectic around here but in very good way.

I figured I’d do a quick fill-in post, for anyone who cares what I have been up to in the world!

Sooo, as you know we were house shopping.

That was pretty short lived because we ended up finding something pronto. Which is excellent! I am kind of a get down to business person so I am glad we werent looking for something forever.

We have been under contract all month doing all the usual negotiations and inspections, yadda yadda and everything came out beautifully and we are closing early in May. Me saying I am excited would be an understatement.

I am like super-cali-fragil-istic excited about living in a house again/owning one. This one is so perfect for us too. We’re kind of going to be moving to the country (aw).

Buying a house is stressful (duh). Paperwork is crazy. All the running around and scheduling is crazy. Negotiations are annoying. Though I do have to say from hearing other people’s experiences, we have been super lucky and everything has gone really smooth actually. So I shouldnt complain what-so-ever.

I will of course share some pictures later. First things first we are having a painter come in to paint inside before we actually move in. So that will be exciting. However, I have learned that I hate choosing paint colors (haha). Why they gotta make so many choices?


Secondly, if you didnt know, I have hardcore really severe seasonal allergies. I always have my entire life so I am kind of used to it but this year has been extra crazy for some reason.

Usually it is mostly my sinuses and sometimes my eyes swell shut (lovely) but this year it is more in my chest and I have been coughing like crazy. I actually went to Urgent Care to make sure that I didnt have an infection in my chest or like pneumonia or something… and luckily I did not. Though I did crack a rib from coughing so hard. Who knew.

I have broken a rib before  in the past and that shiot is painful. This isnt quite as bad, it mostly only hurts if I am coughing or if I twist a certain way. It mostly feels kinda bruised.

So yes, if you were ever wondering, you can cough so hard you break a rib (apparently this is a semi-common thing?)


Thiiiiird… amidst all of this fun we have been having, we have more fun coming up!

The rock festival we have gone to the last few years is coming up next weekend! It came up so fast, but I am definitely ready for it. I’m kind of hoping we dont get all the rain we got for it last year.

The band lineup isnt quite as good as last year, but regardless I am sure it will still mucho fun.


Okay lastly, I feel like this post needed a picture… plus, Kona wanted to kind of say hi also.


PS: I STILL have a Stitch Fix post for you guys soon. Yeah, I’m slackin.


  • FILL ME IN – any fun plans coming up for the beginning of summer?
  • If you have bought a house recently, what kind of work did you do before/or shortly after moving in?
