Let’s spring into the season with a fresh start!
Before the season is in full blast, make like a Spring breeze and freshen up your wardrobe! It is time to do some serious Spring cleaning in that closet of yours! You probably have clothes you don’t wear, will wear one day, will never wear or maybe you even have a donate pile you never took to the donation drop-off. Go through all your clothes and make separate piles of what you will donate, give to friends or family members and what you absolutely want to keep. This is a great way to stay current with the season and trends and stay on top of routine upkeep of your wardrobe.
Spring is the first season of the year; it is a time of renewal. The flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer. As for fashion, colors are more vibrant and it’s time to have more fun with your style! Who doesn’t love Spring?
Here at Lovestitch, we want to show you some of our favorite pieces of the season so that you can spring into the season with style!

Why did we choose to give you REAL pockets in the Mila Maxi dress? Because sometimes we just want to stash our keys and some cash (or whatever) and head to the beach, the music festival, or to that kid-from-your-kid's-school's birthday party...without having to lug around a backpack, a fanny-pack, or any other kind of pack!

Life. Is. Hectic. I find myself consistently putting off "me time" in the hopes of making another dent in my never-ending to-do list. The relief I get from each check mark propels the fantasy that, one day, I might be able to truly get on top of things...
But the reality is, our life's to-do list is infinite. And by forgoing self-care in exchange for check marks (aka immediate gratification), you negate the most important relationship in your life: the one with yourself. That being said, the last thing you want is to feel stressed about having to think of ways to squeeze some "me time" into your schedule... which is where a "Self-Care Jar" comes into play.
I heard about this simple DIY idea from a friend. It makes committing to 30 minutes of self-care a day painless. Simply find an old jar laying around your home, jot down different "me time" ideas on strips of paper, and pop them in! The key is to write down things that you'd not only enjoy but also will actually do…
Here are some ideas from my personal jar:
- Light a candle, sit on the floor, and meditate.
- Walk to the grocery store and buy yourself a bouquet of flowers.
- Practice yoga (I personally love doyogawithme.com. They have quick, effective, and free yoga tutorials).
- Take a bath (and if you're feeling extra fancy, throw in some flower petals and bath salts).
- Read a book.
- Go for a walk.
- Paint, draw, or fill in a coloring book.
Taking time to attend to your own care is not a declaration of selfishness, but rather a way of asserting "me too." I've found that having a jar full of "me time" ideas is an effortless way to make self-care a daily practice - having those bad boys at the ready makes taking care of bae just that much easier.

G-R-E-Y; A classic color that is wrongfully connoted with such words as dull, old, and emotionless.
If we could rewrite the dictionary, that's what we'd say about the color grey. Because, let's keep it real: what other color can stretch the boundaries of monochromatic pairing? With it's endless array of shades, grey is the one color that is perfect for every time of the year. And considering Southern California's lack of "real seasons", year-round pieces hold a special place in our hearts.
So in honor of such a versatile color, we've highlighted eight of our favorite grey Lovestitch garments. Cheers, to you grey!
You may recognize this lovely face from our Fall Collection. Tyrie Rudolph was such a blast to have on set, that we simply could not get enough! So this week, we caught up with the mom and rising model and asked some questions to get to know a little more about her life.
Lovestitch: Where did you grow up? What’s a fond memory from your childhood?
Tyrie: I grew up in Indianapolis, IN. My favorite child memory was when my parents took my sisters and I to Six Flags every summer. I was always the smallest and my dad would put me on his shoulders so I never had to walk.
Lovestitch: We know even models have to have some down time! What’s one of your favorite ways to spend your free time?
Tyrie: I love to take spontaneous trips to Disneyland with my daughter. It’s literally the best place on earth.
Lovestitch: There is no one real way to prepare yourself for parenthood – what is one thing in particular that has surprised you about being a mom?
Tyrie: The most surprising thing about motherhood is realizing how much you do not know about life. My six year old has a lot of questions. She loves Sam Smith (weird I know), but she asked me about broken promises and latching on to someone... Try explaining that to a six year old.
Lovestitch: If you could go back and give one piece of advice to your 10 year old self, what would it be?
Tyrie: I would tell myself to never, ever, ever put a cap on your dreams! If someone told me I'd have the life I have now back when I was a 20 year old pregnant college dropout... I'd think that person was crazy. There is no ceiling in success!
Lovestitch: What’s your favorite Lovestitch piece and how do you style it?
Tyrie: My favorite piece is the Lennox Sweater Coat. It’s my all-time favorite! I know its cliché but I literally wear it with everything! Every time I wear it, I get the "where is that from?" question. I’ve even had a few people ask to try it on.
From trips to Disneyland with her daughter to showcasing fashion's newest trends, Tyrie clearly rocks at life. The more we learn about this model and mom, the more we're becoming her biggest fan. Can we be best friends now, Tyrie?
