I love to support local companies. Especially when they sell clothes. Since I have gone back to work part time and I feel like I need new clothes for work I was thrilled to have another online clothing company brought to my attention. Sweet Salt Clothing sells modest and fashionable clothing.
I loved scrolling through their many pages of options. hey have tops, sweaters, skirts, scarves, and more. They had a lot to choose from, however, don't make the same mistake I did when you first take a look. The first time I looked through the first page of options this is what I saw:
When I saw that the last row didn't have the same amount of options as the first few rows I assumed that, that was all there was to choose from. When I took a second look I noticed the bar at the bottom where the arrow is pointing. It is really light and I obviously didn't notice it at first. Once I did I was surprised with plenty of pages to view and decide. So don't think you have hit the last page of clothes, there should more pages to view.
It took me a few days to decide on the perfect outfit. Not only did I want just the right thing, but I knew I would be showing it off to all of you. One issue I often have with my height is length when it comes to skirts. I can wear some maxi skirts as dresses, and some knee length skirts to my calves. I loved that this website had length in inches on them. Which ultimately helped me when I couldn't make up my mind between 2 skirts. I asked if the lengths were accurate regardless of size, and they said yes. Maybe a few skirts on the largest sizes would be slightly off, but otherwise they should be accurate (mine was, and yes I measured it.)
Another thing I loved was their return/exchange policy. Also because of my size I feel like I am between 2 sizes and I ordered the wrong size on this cute peter pan top. When I got my shipment in the mail it came with a return slip so I did't have to pay to exchange it. I just wrote down on the slip I wanted a different size and quickly got the correct one mailed back to me. It did come back with another slip to mail it back if needed, fortunately I didn't need it. You can check out their fabulous Quality Guarantee.
In the end this is what I got. I love this peter pan top, because the sleeves are a little longer and not the girly cap sleeves. My hair covered up some of the detailing on the top, but you can see it better in the above picture. I almost chose a cute polka dot skirt till I saw this one last minute. I saw this skirt on someone else recently and fell madly in love with it. Only I knew if I came across it, it would be way too long for me and I would have no hope in hemming it. So when I saw it would be the perfect length I couldn't resist. I added a chunky black belt and some black ballet slippers. Perfect for a day at the office, church or a date with my husband.
Another thing they have that I couldn't resist are cute little girl shrugs. I don't have a picture yet cause I am saving them as gifts for my girls, but they have some as low as $2.99! I just noticed today they had some cute plain raspberry or black cardigans for $3.99 as well, so go check out their cardigans for your daughters. A black sweater is a must in any girls closet if you ask me.

Yes I just said salted caramel and Skippy peanut butter in the same sentence. No you are not dreaming. It's real, I promise.
What I struggled with is how else do I eat it besides just plain? It's so good I want it all to myself. In the end I decided to initially try 2 things with it. This morning I threw it in my proetein shake. Talk about starting your morning off right.
My shake had milk (you could use regular, rice, almond, coconut, etc) 1/2 a banana, 2 ice cubes, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder and a scoop of Skippy's salted caramal peanut butter. It was so good. It was also a nice change to my usual morning shake. Caramel after a workout isn't always that bad, right?!
Another thing we had was banana salted caramel peanut butter sandwiches. I spread the special peanut butter on bread and added sliced bananas. It was a fun change for the kids lunch and yummy treat snack for me.
