Welcoming Spring with Sweet P & Fi!

I received these items to review from Sweet P & Fi. 

The sun is shining and I just want to sit outside and soak it all in…until it starts raining or snowing again!

Yes, that is life here in Nebraska! While it still might snow on Easter, it is technically spring and I’m glad to have some days where I don’t have to wear a coat.

This is the perfect time of year to pull out all the lightweight long sleeve shirts, distressed jeans, and slip-on shoes that went into hiding during the bitter cold winter. If you’re needing to add to your spring wardrobe in these areas, let me point you towards Sweet P & Fi

You already know how much I love this online boutique, but Molly, the amazing owner, has been working hard to make it even better for us customers. As always, the pieces she carries are fabulous and the prices are even better, and now the variety is growing!

Sweet P & Fi is one of my favorite places to buy jeans. This pair of Just Black denim hits four important points on my jeans-buying checklist: high-waisted, distressed, comfortable, and affordable! I love the extra detail of the frayed bottom, which could also be cuffed or rolled to go well with booties.

This polka dot hoodie is the perfect weight for this spring day and hello, POLKA DOTS! Did I also mention it’s a tunic? Yay for covering my bum! Texture is really important to me with clothing and this top is SO soft. The leather drawstrings are a fun touch, too!

As a runner, I’m super excited to tell you Sweet P & Fi is now offering fantastic workout clothes!

This top is my fave because I say this ALL THE TIME. It’s great for working out or for wearing the day after a long run to tell everyone exactly how I’m feeling! Over at Sweet P & Fi, you’ll also find more tanks, great leggings, sports bras, and more. Whether you’re into yoga, lifting, spin, or just athleisure, I think you’ll love these newer items!

My Fall Uniform

I received these items to review from Sweet P & Fi. I was not compensated in any way for this post and all opinions are 100% my own.

I am a capsule wardrobe dropout. I just couldn’t stick to 30-40 pieces exclusively for a whole season because I like to mix things up. I do, however, like to have a go-to outfit for the days when I want to feel comfortable, confident, and put together without too much thought. Honestly, we want to feel like that every day, right?

My fall uniform is something you will find me in at least four days a week. It’s more of an outfit formula and looks like this:

long top + skinny bottoms + boots

This formula gives me a starting point, but it also allows for lots of creativity, so I never feel stuck like I did with a capsule wardrobe. While I adore this uniform, I have a found a few challenges within this formula.

First, long tops such as tunics don’t always fit me well because I am smaller on top and wider on bottom. More fitted tunics are tough because, if I pick a size to fit my hips, the shoulders are much too big. This is why I pick longer tops either with stretch, a slight flair at the hips, or with lots of flow.

Second, skinny bottoms can mean lots of things: skinny jeans, jeggings, skinny pants, faux leather leggings, and leggings. I LOVE comfy leggings for my “skinny bottoms” option, but leggings present lots of questions. Are they soft? constricting? see-through? Will they fall down over and over again?

As fall officially sets in this week, I’ve been pulling out my fall clothes, planning different variations of my uniform, and adding a few new key pieces to update it for 2016. My new go-to place for all things fashionable is Sweet P & Fi, an online boutique, owned by lovely local mom, Molly!

Here’s my fall uniform, the Sweet P & Fi edition!

The very second I saw this tunic, with its amazing fall color, front pocket, cowl neck, and perfect fit, I knew I had to make it mine. It has a great texture and won’t be too hot on a sunny fall day. Sweet P & Fi is also getting the same top in black – I must have it! These will be up on the site very soon, so keep your eyes open!

What is it about a pocket that makes a tunic so much more awesome?! It just does. The cuffed sleeves are another fun detail – you can show off your arm party on both arms!

Let’s talk about the leggings – yes, those are leggings! They totally look like jeans, but they are incredibly soft and don’t fall down! HOORAY! I wore them all day and felt fabulous in them!  Check out the ribbing around the knees – isn’t that fun?

One last Sweet P & Fi piece you may have missed in this outfit – those leather earrings! Molly makes them all herself and they are SO reasonably priced. I picked some brown snakeskin-like leather to go with all the warm autumn colors and I adore them!

I can’t tell you enough how much I love Sweet P & Fi. Molly has great taste and is very picky about what she adds to her shop. She also cares about giving her customers a good deal. Her prices are AMAZING and shipping is free! FREE! Here are a few of my other favorite pieces:
