Tuesday Shoesday

I am head over heels in love with all things sparkly this time of year making these flats from Express the perfect addition to any look.  Whether I’m rocking simple leggings & a boyfriend tee, or a structured dress, these flats are sure to spice up any outfit!

Below I’ve also featured two of my go-to essentials – a belted trench coat & a wristlet clutch.  These wardrobe must-haves transition nicely from season to season & never go out of style.  I picked up this trench from H&M a few seasons ago, but I’ve included links to similar to styles that are not only super chic but affordable as well.

Fashion Bloggers Unite

I am excited to share that I’ve officially become a member of Style Collective!  For those that aren’t familiar, Style Collective is a “blogging community and platform for female influencers to connect, grow, and learn how to be successful bloggers and entrepreneurs”.  When I first started my blog 2 years ago, I wasn’t sure which direction it would take or how much energy I would direct towards it.  But after trial and error I think I have found my footing focusing on fashion, daily outfit inspirations and the occasional momism.

Over the weekend I attended Pittsburgh’s first official Style Collective meetup.  It was the perfect opportunity to break all the rules…who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?!  I also showcased my grandmother’s vintage leather coat which was recently handed down to me.  Can we just talk about this faux fur tho… 😉

This faux fur stole makes the whole jacket!  I’m in love; thanks Grandma.

Statement Clutch

I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last post!  I always start my day with the intention of putting something new up on the blog, but then life happens placing my energy & attention elsewhere.  I swear my New Years resolution is to make it a priority!

As a SAHM to an active toddler I don’t always get to accessorize an outfit the way I want.  I love long layered necklaces & small chic clutches but the practicality of them is slim to none.  With that being said, I have found my new favorite go-to statement clutch perfect for my busy mom on-the-go lifestyle.

This Street Level clutch from Stitch Fix was under $50, has two interior zip pockets and a detachable chain crossbody strap.  Despite its size, this bag is super spacious.  I am able to carry my phone, ID/credit cards, a small snack for little man, band aids, hand wipes and my go-to lipgloss.

Olive you too #OOTD

As the weather continues to cool here in Pittsburgh rich colors & textures have made a huge presence in my daily wardrobe.  From cozy on-trend knits to oversized ponchos & an array of olive green, my daily outfits have been screaming all things fall!  Below I’ve added some of my favorite easy to wear looks & layering pieces, all of which are under $100.

Pictured Below – Emory Park poncho cardigan from Stitch Fix ($48) and a long sleeve grey knit tee from Marshalls ($12.99).  A versatile look that transitioned from preschool drop-off to brunch & shopping with my mom

Pictured Below – Skies are Blue ruffle cold shoulder knit ($58) & Liverpool bootcut jeans ($78) both purchased from Stitch Fix.  The perfect outfit for Mom’s Night Out!

Below, I added a fringe hem blanket scarf to this outfit as a lightweight layering piece rather than a bulky jacket
