Stitch Fix Reveal

As a Senior Stylist for Stitch Fix, I not only get the opportunity to style some amazing women, but I also get to style myself.  After seeing all of the summer-inspired styles in our inventory, I couldn’t resist sending myself a Fix.  Scroll down to see the pieces I decided to keep & send back, and some quick styling tips for each item.

Lux & Co Knit Maxi Dress

This is by far my favorite style from this Fix.  I love the pattern mixing and pockets, the lightweight fabrication and the figure-flattering A-line silhouette.  It’s a little long, but I’m only 5’0″ so that’s normal for me; nothing some strappy wedges can’t fix.  I cannot wait to wear this dress out for date night with a floral statement necklace & a black clutch.

Nine Britton Jemima Knit Dress

This lightweight shift dress is perfect for summer!  Not only does it have pockets but a built in shelf bra as well.  It will look great worn during the day with a strappy leather sandal then to dinner on an outdoor patio with a denim jacket and an espadrille wedge.

Market & Spruce Belt Bag AND Pistola Button Front Frayed Hem Skinny Jeans

I am in love with both of these styles!  The belt bag is unlike anything I currently have in my wardrobe plus it’s only $38, and the Pistola Jeans have an elongating high-rise waist & unique distressed detailing.  I paired the jeans with several different tops, but I think a knotted tee or body suit will look best.

Fun2Fun Casterino V-Neck Top

This is only style that I wasn’t sold on.  I love the woven detailing around the neckline but I think the color washes me out a little.  It’s a great silhouette, so I may try it again but in a different color/pattern.

Day to Night Style

As a busy mom-on-the-go ease of wear is important to me.  Whether I’m running errands with little man, grabbing lunch with a blogger babe or dinner & drinks with the hubs, I need clothing that will keep me comfortable & can easily transition from day to night.  Throughout the years I’ve picked up wardrobe staples that have helped me turn daytime looks into nighttime ensembles and vice versa.  I’m talking layering pieces, great fitting denim and footwear.  See below how I’ve incorporated these essentials into my outfits and how easy it is for a piece to transition from morning coffee to evening drinks.

I recently picked up this V-neck tie-waist top from Marshall’s.  It was super cheap but also super lightweight & comfortable; all of my favorite things!  I wore it casually during the day with my favorite denim jacket (a wardrobe staple) and olive chino shorts, then out for dinner & drinks with dark wash skinnies (another wardrobe staple), a statement clutch/crossbody & an espadrille wedge.

Another Marshall’s find that I transitioned from day to night is this graphic Born to be Wild tank.  I wore it on a gloomy spring morning with a lightweight cotton cardigan (a wardrobe staple), my Kensie Skinnies and a strappy leather sandal, then out for dinner & movie later that night with a faux leather moto jacket (another staple), distressed skinnies, and my favorite wedges.

Finding essentials that you keep you comfortable is key to mastering a day to night wardrobe.  I definitely recommend investing in a great pair of regular & distressed skinny jeans, layering pieces, and even solid tanks/tees that you can mix & match.

#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!

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!
