mail haul

one thing you should know about me is that i LOVE snail mail. call me old fashioned, but i think that it's 100times more fun to receive a hand written note in the mail than a boring old e-mail. also, i have signed up for almost every single free fashion catalog that i can find. if you know of some rare ones, help a sista out! 

today i got the most fun things in the mail that i have gotten in a while. usually when i get the mail, i only have one good thing and sometimes i have nothing at all. but, today i got a few good things, and i thought i would share them with you! 

1. i got a my birch box of the month! i have been subscribed to birch box for about six months, and while it started out great i'm not too happy about it anymore! i feel like six months ago, they had products that i would actually want to try out, and now they have some cheapy-deapy ones. don't get me wrong though, only paying ten dollars a month for this box is totally worth it!! 

i forgot to take a picture of the blue thing, but it is a headband that is basically a piece of fabric with a wire hanger in the middle ... i spy a future diy

***not i got all the information about each product from a card that was in the box. i haven't yet tried out all the products, but if you would like a review, just comment below and i will be more than happy to give you one***

2. i used to think ll.bean was too much of a "mom store", but let me tell you this, it is not! this catalog was one that i ordered, just so i could have something in my mailbox with my name on it, but i have been pleasantly surprised to find more that one thing that i like in the catalog! ll.bean also has a lot of key pieces for you wardrobe!! here are my favorite looks from this season

the cover:
i'm in love with anything stripped so of course i love this dress! 

this look is too cute, and i love the seersucker! 

i'm a fan of white lace dressed, so i of course love this dress as well! 

Lucky Magazine
one of my favorites because it doesn't have an overload of ads! 
p.s. i'm always looking for recommendations on magazines, so if you know a good one, please leave a comment!! 

 and last but not least, my studs!! i ordered these off of THIS etsy store, and couldn't be more please with the quality! stay tuned for a studded shorts diy tomorrow! 

if you made it this far, i'm proud of you. you get a gold star and ten chloe bonus points! i usually never get this much good stuff in the mail, but if you would like to see more mail hauls then let me know!!
