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 – 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 – 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 -Dark Denim & Linen Blends

Nothing is better than catching up with an old friend over good wine & small plates.  Last night I was so lucky to see my friend who was visiting from out of town.  We ate, drank & shared our adventures in Motherhood.  I didn’t want to say goodbye… but unfortunately all good things must come to an end.  Safe travels back to Denver my love!

20160926_184322

It finally feels like fall in Pittsburgh, which means I can finally wear dark colored denim & ankle booties!  I am obsessed with this dark burgundy denim & linen blend knit, both of which I picked up for less than $50.  Bring on the cooler weather mother nature; I’m ready!

#OOTD – Floral Romper

Yesterday I had the opportunity to get together with some of the amazing stylists I work with to view our new fall line.  Though I am anxiously awaiting crisp autumn days so I can wear scissor cut jeans, booties & oversized knits mother nature decided it would be a warm 90 degrees.  So, rather than sweat my face off in my new fall favorites, I decided to rock this floral romper I’ve had stashed in my closet all summer.

As the weather starts to cool I’ll transition this romper to the fall with an olive ankle bootie & sleeveless cardigan. Stay tuned for the fall-inspired look!
