Pretty Little Spring Dresses

7:43 AM


I am loving the warm weather right now and by warm I mean not 30 degrees and freezing. There are so many great spring dresses this year with really pretty floral designs, cold shoulders, and comfy maxi dresses. Check out some of my favorite dress finds below. Some are on sale right now for really great prices! Let me know if any of you have any of these and love them in the comments. :-) I plan on ordering the LUSH maxi soon.

Spring Break Favorites

5:48 PM

This post contains affiliate links but everything I share on my blog are items that I personally love.


 Ahh, spring break is coming and if you are lucky enough to be able to get away somewhere warm well......then I am kinda jealous to be honest. I probably won't get away to the beach until summer time but I will just have to wait my turn. A girl can dream though and my spring break picks will be great items for all summer long. I hope you all enjoy and see something that catches your eye. 


Floppy Straw Hat with Black Bow
Shop it here
The classic floppy beach hat made even cuter with the bow on the back. I will definitely be ordering this for myself for the beach and pool days. I will be sure to post it to my Facebook and Instagram when it comes in. Only $14.99

Crochet High Neck Bikini Top


 Shop it here
 
This bikini top combines the crochet look with high neck and lace up back. I will be doing another blog post soon with more favorite swim suit picks.

Yonala Cover Up
Shop it here
I personally like cover ups that are light and airy and easy to take on and off. I don't want to feel like I have to strip off a dress before I go into the pool or ocean. This cover up is a perfect easy on and off piece. Also, the floral design and color is on trend. Only $13.99 with free shipping if you are a Prime member at Amazon.
Elan V-Back Cover-Up Maxi Dress
 Shop it here
I love the coral color of this dress and the casual fit. It would be great to slip on over a bathing suit and go strolling on the boardwalk. At least, this is what I picture in my head when I am daydreaming about the beach. Available in 5 colors.
Michael Kors Flip Flops
Shop them here
If you are a Michael Kors fan and love flip flops then these are a must! Available in 4 different color combinations and all of them look lovely. This gold pair is my favorite.
Douguyan Printing Beach Canvas Bags
 Shop it here
I love the boho chic vibe of this beach canvas bag and the rope handle is so cute. It also has a zipper enclosure on the top which can be a rare find in a beach tote bag. I have to keep all my "mom stuff" contained.
Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
Shop it here
This book is on my list to read this summer and spring break would also be the perfect time. Not much is better than relaxing and reading a book that is both inspiring and encouraging.
I hope you enjoyed these finds and I will be picking my favorite spring dresses next on the blog! Until next time,
Mallory

Lace Up Trend - Finds from Target

8:12 AM

This post contains affiliate links but everything I share on my blog I personally love and want to share with you.

A big trend right now is the lace up trend and I'm kind of loving it. I also love Target. So, I will share with you some of my favorite lace up clothing pieces from Target. Let's start with this one:


Women's Strappy Lace Up Tee $14.99
Shop it here 
This is my new favorite tee shirt. It is simple, super comfortable, and I love the lace up detail. I am wearing in the color Berry in a size small. It also comes in Black and Gray. True to size and it has a bit of stretch in the arms. This shirt looks very similar to more expensive brands but for half the cost. 

Women's Cold Shoulder Cris Cross Top $16.99
Shop it here
I love that this top combines the lace up and the cold shoulder. It would be perfect for a date night or ladies night out. Available in black or red (more of a maroon). Has a bit of stretch to it and a swing cut through the waist and hip area. So cute!

Women's Kady Pointed Toe Lace Up Ballet Flat $24.99
Shop it here
I have these and they are the best. I have them in black and cognac. They also are available in a denim blue and red. They are super comfortable and don't hurt my feet at all. They also aren't as complicated to lace up as you might think. Just slip on and wrap around your ankle a few times and then tie in a double knot in the front. You are good to go! 
Women's Lace Up Chambray Dress $39.99
Shop it here

This chambray dress features a loose casual fit with a lace up neckline. And pockets! Dresses with pockets = win. Great for spring when paired a floral scarf and booties.

That's all for now but I will for sure be sharing more Target favorites on a regular basis. They have really stepped it up in the style game and I love that they are so affordable. Ladies, I am all about affordable on this blog. I will not pretend to be anything but what I am and I love bargains. Also, my real life pics won't always be perfect and my house in the background might be messy. I will try my best to share pretty images with you but I also want to keep it real, you know what I mean? Thanks for reading and until next time!
XO,
Mallory

Stitch Fix Box Reveal - February 2017

9:16 PM

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


So, have you heard of Stitch Fix? If not, then please let me introduce you to it! Stitch Fix is a subscription box service for fashionable women's clothing, accessories, and shoes. They also recently added men's clothing to their services. Why is this potentially life changing? Well, for me it is great because because I live in a small town without a lot of good shopping options. I am also a busy mom to 2 boys and a small business owner of Mallory Lynn Decor. And let's face it playing dress up can be fun and we all deserve a little fun every once in awhile.

Here are some of my favorite things about Stitch Fix:
1. You have your own personal stylist who send you items based on your style preferences.
2. You can try everything on and they include a pre-paid shipping label to return your items. Ummm, trying clothes on in comfort of your own home and return for free?? Yes, please!!
3. You can set your box to come monthly, every other month, quarterly, etc. and there is no penalty to close your account.
4. You pay a $20 styling fee when your stylist is picking out items for you but that $20 is applied to your order when you checkout.

It's seriously great. You can sign up here: Sign me up, buttercup!

Please feel free to pin any these pictures on Pinterest or let your stylist know in your note if you see anything that you would like to request in your next fix!

Box Reveal
1. 41Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan - $38
I love the coral color of this and it would be great for spring since it is lightweight. However, when I tried it on there was something about it that just didn't feel like it was for me. I think maybe it was because it is a longer length and cardigans in general aren't my style. Verdict: I ended up selling this piece on a Facebook Buy/Sell group and it sold within minutes of posting. Looking back at the pic....it does look cute on and I have a bit of sellers remorse. Oh well!

2. Market and Spruce Sam Hi Lo Short Sleeve Tee - $38 and
3. ZAD Nicolas Pre-layered Necklace - $28
The Market & Spruce Sam Hi Lo is a highly coveted Stitch Fix piece but I was underwhelmed by it. It is very soft and is made from a thick material but I didn't think it was flattering on me. In the end it was just a t-shirt and I don't spend $38 on a t-shirt unless it makes me look really good and...ahem... I still haven't found that mythical t-shirt. The necklace is very cute but I have something similar already. If you are looking for a pre-layered necklace, I would recommend it! Verdict: I ended up selling both of these on a Facebook Buy/Sell group.

4. Le Lis Sibley Knot Front Tee - $44
This one is definitely my style and I can see why my stylist picked it. A light gray neutral color with a unique 'twist'...see what I did there? Anyways, I wanted to love it and it was super comfy but the top of the shirt was baggy on me and the armholes were too big. I promise to get better pics next time! I am sure it would be great on someone else and it sold quickly when I posted it online. Verdict: Sold online to someone else.

5. Pixley Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse - $48

The Pixley Ellie blouse has that boho chic relaxed vibe that I love. I also love that it is so unique and only something you can receive from Stitch Fix. It is light, airy and loose. I will pair this with skinny jeans and booties for an easy outfit that is totally me. Verdict: Kept!

Stay tuned - I will be posting more Stitch Fix  favorites from past fixes soon.
