My Favorite Summer Looks

As the days get shorter & the weather (slowly) starts to cool I wanted to share some of my favorite summer looks.  Each of these outfits came from…you guessed it, Marshalls!  I am so lucky to have two stores within close proximity to our house, both that are fully stocked with on-trend styles at great prices!

This off-the-shoulder romper was the perfect go-to style for celebrating the 4th of July!  All I needed to complete this look was my favorite wedges & a glass of sangria 😉

Another day, another blue off the shoulder outfit & a glass of red.  My brother & I were registered to run a 5K in June but the weather wasn’t in our favor so we opted for dinner & drinks instead.  This was also the perfect opportunity to wear this lightweight ruffled blouse & a top knot!

Last but not least is this cold shoulder floral blouse that I’ve managed to wear several times throughout the summer.  First, to my son’s birthday party with a pair of olive chino shorts, below for girls night out with my favorite dark wash skinnies & lastly with a light wash distressed boyfriend jean & canvas flats.

Maxxinista Life

I have recently become a full blown Maxxinista and am loving every penny saving moment! By definition, a Maxxinista is “one who finds unique and original designer items at discount prices” at the discount department store TJ Maxx.  The fact that I found an actual definition of this online is amazing!

I always seem to have such good luck shopping at TJ Maxx & Marshalls, not to mention Homegoods too!  It’s always a quick & easy shopping experience which makes dragging my toddler along with me not a complete nightmare.  Anyways, I am excited to share some of my most recent finds & how I styled them

Lemon & pineapple prints are everywhere this season, so when I found this Off The Shoulder Top for only $12.99 at TJ Maxx, I just had to get it!  I kept things casual by pairing it my high-rise distressed skinnies, cuffed at the ankle, strappy wedges & statement chandelier earrings.

Being that I’m only 5’0″ tall I rarely wear skirts, but with midi skirts being on-trend this year I just had to try one for myself.  I picked up this yellow perforated skirt & crochet cap sleeved knit from TJ Maxx for under $25.  Since the top was a little long I decided to knot the hem to one side & add a fun pop of contrasting color with this blue floral necklace.

As you can see, I saved the best for last!  I found this floral tie waist jumpsuit at Marshalls for under $20 (I can’t remember the exact price).  But, what a steal!  I paired this jumpsuit with my Tory Burch wedges and Chloe+Isabel statement necklace for a good friend’s wedding rehearsal.

#OOTN – Vaca Fashion

Two weeks ago I took my first girls trip since having my son almost 3 years ago.  Needless to say, this was a much-needed getaway!  My girlfriends & I headed to Miami to celebrate a friend’s bachelorette party.  Our days were full of sunshine & tropical drinks and our nights were spent dancing into the late hours.

While on vacation I had the chance to try out some trends that aren’t necessarily appropriate for heading to the park or an afternoon play date.  The first night I rocked this easy-wear romper that I picked up from Forever21 for under $20.  It paired nicely with my black strappy heels & faux leather clutch.

I was planning on wearing an off-the-shoulder royal blue romper on our second night out, but ended up burning a hole in it with the condo’s not so trusty iron :-/  I ended up borrowing this sheer cutout bodysuit & faux leather skirt from my girlfriends; thank goodness I have stylish friends!

On our last night, we headed to Nikki Beach for drinks & dancing in the sand.  I kept things simple & chic with this form fitting crop top from Express & these lightweight trousers from Target that I snagged for $6.99!

#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
