A Day In My Shoes [Plus a Fun Stitch Fix Announcement!]
March 16, 2016
If you’re anything like me you are super nosy when it comes to other people’s daily lives. And I’m not really sure why but there is just something so intriguing about standing outside of somebody else’s window peaking in at 9:30 in the morning to see if they drink their coffee black or all doctored up.
Okay so I may not actually do the whole window peaking thing but I do read blogs and look at SnapChat regularly so same thing.
With the excitement around Stitch Fix now offering shoes [WHAT?! I KNOW! Stitch Fix can now dress you from head to toe so yes, dreams do come true! More details below] I thought it would be fun to do a little “day in my shoes” type of post. Lets jump in to see these oh so exciting shenanigans.
Most days start out around 6:30 when I hear my husband’s alarm go off which means I typically lay in bed until 7:00 and that’s when I start to feel guilty that I haven’t moved. Slowly I make my way to the miracle worker, our Keurig machine and brew the first cup of the day.
Chromebook in hand, pajamas on, and dog by my side I spend the first few hours of my day working away on all things Pollinate Media and if time permits writing the next days blog post.
When getting dressed for work [I work at a local credit union making outbound calls for the other 5 hours of my day] I reach for my new Franco Sarto shoes from Stitch Fix. That’s right, my favorite service provider of all things wardrobe are now offering shoes in your fixes! Ranging from sizes 6-10 (with half sizes even) they have all your favorite brands – TOMS, Dolce Vita, Nine West, Franco Sarto, Seychelles, Cole Haan, Kenneth Cole and of course – exclusive styles made only for Stitch Fix themselves. If you are a current Stitch Fix lover, head to your style profile and update your shoe preferences now! And if you aren’t, well it seems like now would be the perfect time to step out and try it. Pun intended.
After work I typically come home and do the wife stuff – make dinner, clean up, try really hard to get a workout in and then catch up on all things social media, write a blog post and of course, enjoy a glass of wine.
Lights out and I repeat it all again the next day. And there we have it – a glimpse into my every day, fascinating stuff isn’t it?
The fun isn’t over just yet though — because the people of Stitch Fix love you so much they have offered to give away $100 in credit so that you can enjoy a new pair [or two!] of shoes in your next fix! This giveaway is open to both current customers and brand new ones so everybody is welcome! Entry is super simple so get after it.
Who else is excited about this news? I can’t wait to request a new pair soon!

When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
