#OOTD – Off The Shoulder

I always look forward to date night with the hubs.  Not only do we have the option to sit at the bar rather than a booth big enough for a booster seat, but I get to showcase my favorite new fashion finds!

Our most recent night out consisted of happy hour, some impromptu wine tasting & a late night movie.  I decided to wear my new off the shoulder knit from my latest Fix!  Not only was this top super comfortable but it was only $38!  I love finding chic styles at a steal!

I’m basically rocking head to toe Stitch Fix in this picture, which is quite alright with me!  These Just Black Skinnies are my favorite go-to denim and this satchel/crossbody bag has become a wardrobe staple!

Gym Style Goals

Though I wish I could make it to the gym everyday, it’s just unrealistic.  Between playdates, trips to the museum, working part-time and trying to keep my house in (somewhat) order, going to the gym always sits on the back burner.  With that being said, I am starting to make an effort and am slowly getting my son use to the daycare provided.

However, my New Year’s Resolution isn’t to get back to the gym, but to be stylish when I actually make it there.  I recently came across some fantastic new workout gear at Marshalls!  Each piece was only $16.99.  I love fashion on a dime!!!

If these sheer cutouts aren’t motivation to hit the gym, then I don’t know what is!

#OOTN – New Years Eve

Can you believe it’s 2017 already?!  Though I hate that my little man is quickly becoming a toddler before my eyes, I love the start of a new year!  It’s as if you get a clean slate – a fresh start at love, friendship, personal growth, not to mention new fashion trends & outfit options!

The last few years we’ve hosted a NYE get together at our house.  It’s become tradition to do fondue & create fun martinis.  Though it’s just a small get together with close friends & family, I love any opportunity to get dressed up!  I was hoping to wear a new LBD by Tory Burch that my husband surprised me with, but I had to exchange sizes & am still waiting for the new size to arrive.  Rather, I put together a sparkly number that, believe or not, I found at Forever 21.

I have never been one to wear a body suit, but I have to admit I am kind of a fan.  It was the perfect style to pair with this long pencil skirt!  I originally tried it on with my high rise jeans which I loved, so I may be rocking that look soon too.

By the way, doesn’t my girlfriend look super chic in her Louboutin pumps and LBD from Stitch Fix!?  Major style goals!

#OOTN – Date Night

I tried to write a cute & clever story to accompany this blog post, but to be honest I am exhausted from the holidays & my creative side is apparently taking a nap.  Nevertheless, I am so excited to share this date night look from the holiday season.  I somehow convinced my husband to see The Nutcracker with me.  And, believe it or not he actually enjoyed it!

………………………………………………..

Last Christmas he gifted me this beautiful Tory Burch dress which I haven’t had the chance to wear  yet.  This was the perfect opportunity!  I styled it with my Tory wedges and new burgundy satchel from Stitch Fix for a simple yet chic ensemble great for date night.

Before the show we enjoyed a romantic dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse in the Cultural District of Pittsburgh.  My husband is wearing a gingham shirt by Untucked with a heather grey blazer from Nordstrom; he cleans up pretty well!

Finally, I also had the chance to wear this vintage dress coat gifted to me by my mother.  My father bought it for her when she was my age; I am so lucky she kept it all these years!

#OOTD – Baby it’s cold outside

Cold lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes…winter has officially arrived in Pittsburgh!  As much as I dread getting my toddler bundled up to leave the house, I love winter fashion.  Cozy knits,  draped cardigans, boots & scarves, all of it!  Though it would be easier to just throw on leggings & an oversized sweater I’ve been trying to maintain my sanity through chic ensembles that make me look & feel great!  Plus, I grabbed all of these styles at great prices, which makes my hubby happy too 🙂

#OOTD – Cozy Sweater

The first snowfall has officially hit the ground in Pittsburgh & I’m loving it!  It’s that perfect snow that gently blankets the grass & trees but melts as soon as it hits the pavement.

I am always challenged with what to wear while running errands this time of year.  Wearing a bulky jacket does not make carrying my son & “diaper bag” easy.  I say diaper bag lightly because he’s almost fully potty trained, but I carry his snacks & an extra pair of pants just in case.  Though the air is crisp & cool, it’s not exactly freezing yet so I’m able to wear a comfy sweater & leggings with ease.

While running errands yesterday I decided to wear my oversized mock-neck sweater by Trouve.  My husband gifted this to me for Christmas two years ago & it has become a staple in my winter wardrobe.

I love playing with textures, so I paired this cozy sweater with a faux leather legging & faux suede bootie.  Below is an up-close picture of just how soft & comfortable this pullover sweater is!20161121_195149

#OOTD -Play Mat T-Shirt

Unfortunately, my son caught a nasty bug this week so my outfits have consisted of mostly leggings & slouchy tees.  Posting an Outfit Of The Day is the last thing on my mind, plus I doubt anyone is interested in what booger covered tee I’m rocking today 🙂

I am, however, super excited to share this fun tee I purchased for my husband’s birthday. This Play Mat Shirt courtesy of BKYKID on Etsy is by far one of my favorite purchases to date!

20161115_083633

My husband was a little confused at first, but once I explained the concept of turning into a live play mat for our son, he loved the idea!  I definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a fun & unique holiday gift.

#OOTD – Sleeveless Cardigan

Thanks to StitchFix I have found my new favorite fall layering piece!  This gray, sleeveless cardigan by RD Style is not only comfortable & stylish but extremely versatile & easy to wash.  So far I have paired it with three different looks this season and I can’t wait to keep experimenting with it

I’m also excited to share this sleeveless cardigan I picked up from a local fashion truck Mack & Mario.  The owner Lori has such an eye for seasonal trends & this reversible cardigan is no exception!  It’s so cozy & chic and will be the perfect layering piece throughout fall & winter.

#OOTD – Flirty & Feminine

It was one of those mornings where the stars aligned…my toddler was in a fantastic mood & we just so happened to be running errands near the mall.  What’s a girl to do but stop in & do some quick shopping!

I can’t remember the last time I shopped at Forever21.  It’s a store I frequented often in college, but being that I’m 31 I just never think of it as an option.  However, something about their window display caught my eye so we popped in.  To my surprise, I found some fantastic pieces that are not only super stylish but decent quality.

20161018_112510

I am completely obsessed with this lace crop top & floral midi skirt.  Two pieces I wouldn’t be quick to pair together, but something about it just works!

And, pairing this lace top with sleek black leggings isn’t too bad either!  All I need to complete this look is high-heeled ankle booties & this grey faux leather moto jacket.
