Summer KidPik Life Saver!

For those of you who have been following us, you know my love for Kidpik for my daughter. For those who are new to Rockstar Moms, well you are in for a treat!

In an effort to help make our very busy Mom lives as easy as I can, Knowing that every season my Isabella will be receiving this box full of super fun fashion, shoes, and accessories is a life saver. I don’t always have the time to keep up with her growth spirts and who doesn’t love a good subscription box!?  The fun and suspense of seeing what’s inside!

When we found Kidpik, a subscription box for girls sizes 4-16, we just HAD to try it. We have been subscribing to Kidpik now for about 3 years and absolutely love it!  It is so much fun for her to open and know that if she loves the items she can keep them and if she does not, well then, they can be returned with no obligation to anything. Best part is the shipping is free and free for the returns too!

First, let’s start with how Kidpik works:

When you go to the Kidpik site you set up an account.  You will need to enter things, such as, address, credit card info, when you would like to receive your picks.  You can receive them as little as once per year or as often as 1 per month! Then your daughter will get to set up her profile (this is the fun part).  She will be able to control telling Kidpik what her favorite colors are, rank how “sparkly” she is, choose from pre-set outfits what she likes the best, and also what stores she likes to shop at.  This helps them choose the picks for her boxes that fit her style. She will need to update this profile for each season and you just need to remember to update her sizes as she grows!

It is very important to note that there is zero obligation to keep anything you receive in your box.  There are also no shipping fees to receive or return. You can keep everything, pick and choose what you want to keep , or send it all back!

In an average box you will receive on 7 items, that make about 4-5 outfits.  This may include dresses, skirts, pants, tops, shoes, accessories, and always a “Gift for you” that you can keep even if you send everything else back.

The box will arrive looking like this:

 

It will be addressed to your daughter.  It is sooooo exciting for Isabella when she comes home from school and sees this box at our door step!

When she opens the box everything is wrapped up beautifully and some items are in these amazing reusable drawstring bags (which I use when we travel for toiletries or shoes).

Isabella’s box came with a pair of cut off denim shorts, a T-shirt , 1 skirt, 1 dress, a bathing suit (Bella’s fab item), pair of ADORABLE sandals, a belt bag and her “gift” of a super secure LOVE bracelet or she choose to wear it as an anklet. In the past the “gift” has been patches, pins, hair ties, or even jewelry. Oh! Another super fun item that came in this box is this magazine! It is full of articles, games, puzzles, and beauty diy’s.

Her try on session! Needless to say she is keeping everything, again!!

Now for the details:

The price points for this box ranged from $9.99 for the Belt bag to $29.50 for the dress.  A very important note is that if you keep everything you get 30% off the total purchase, and this is for every box.  So to keep this entire box will be $102. We received 7 items so that is $14.57 per item, on average.

Another very important note is that if you do not want to keep all the items but, sometimes, it is less expensive to buy everything and get the 30% off.  You can donate the items you do not want to keep by paying for everything, sending back the item you do not want to keep in the pre-paid shipment bag and Kidpik will donate the items to girls in need in the community around them.

From what I have seen so far in the 3 years we have been receiving boxes is that this company delivers quality clothing at a great value and cares about the community around them.

Oh!! One more very important note is that the actual boxes are great to reuse for absolutely anything.  Isabella uses them to store her dolls, shopkins, play school supplies……the options are endless!😁

Loft Dress Sale

I was doing an inventory of my closet to see what else I needed for the warm weather and to capitalize on the great sales going on!

It quickly became obvious to me how much I rely on Loft for great quality dresses. Casual, dress-up, short, long, I have them all!

This season’s styles are no exception to offering great prints, colors and details that are right on trend and they are all 40-60% off! They also come in many different sizing options in regular, petite and plus sizes!

I stopped by my local loft to try on some great styles. Here are my favorite dresses and I even found a great jumpsuit for the summer…all fit tts. I am wearing a size Small or size 4 in all styles. The first picture, the stripe button down was the only style I maybe could have sized down 1 size in due to me being a little smaller in the bust area 🙂

All styles below are 40% with code CYBER except where noted at a deeper discount (commission links)

Last Short Try ON! American Eagle!!

The last stop on my “looking for shorts that look good on me” journey was #AExME. I really wanted to try their Midi Short that I have heard great things about. My local store only had one style of the Midi Short to try however….. But I will say that these are probably my favorite destructed short of all the denim shorts I tried. It was definitely worth finding!

Also, you all know how much I love that basic tee from a certain big box retailer, but this camo tee is a great not so basic style. The fit is super cute, the feel is SUPER soft, and the sleeve cuff detail is adorable!!

Shop both below! (commission links)

Embroidered Top from Amazon

This is the first season I’ve shopped for apparel and fashion items on Amazon and I’m definitely on the Amazon bandwagon! This embroidered blouse is one of my favorite items I’ve picked up so far. The bright embroidery pattern is perfect for summer. The ruffle sleeves give a feminine look to the blouse. And the looser fit will be extra comfortable in the warmer weather. This top will be a show stopper for both casual looks or if you want to be a little more dressed up with jeans, heels, or wedges. I’m really loving both looks with my white denim, though it would also pair great with regular denim or colored shorts or pants. (commission links)

Sleeveless Embroidered Pom Pom Blouse– Available in 5 colors and less than $23! I followed the sizing recommendation to size up one size, and it was definitely the right choice. I bought a size medium when I normally wear a small.

Other items shown:

White Denim Shorts– runs tts. Up to 40% off with code NOTSOBASIC

Rose Gold Footbed Sandals– less than $23

White Denim Skinny Jeans– 20% off and only $56

New Retailer For Me: Social Threads

Hey! I am pretty excited that I found Social Threads. A localish retailer that is online and does house parties! Who does that anymore?! From what I understand you invite your friends to your home and they bring all the latest trends for you and your friends to try on and purchase!

Their product line is just what I look for, casual, easy to wear clothing that is reasonably priced. They offer free shipping on all purchases that are shipped standard too! That’s huge for me.  Another thing I found pretty amazing is their customer service, I placed my order at 10:54 am, received a thank you email for placing my order at 11:00 am (who does that anymore?!), and at 12:00 pm that same day received an email that my shipment was on its way!!! I am not sure if that is the norm but I will definitely find out!

Check out the super cute summertime tops below! (Commission links)

They all fit true to size, for reference I am wearing a size Small.
