Lady Gang Girl Power

If you don’t already have a girl gang, run out & find out.  I’ve found mine & I am beyond grateful for GRLPWRPGH.  This group is exactly what it sounds like….a bunch of boss babes in the Pittsburgh area who network, collab, get inspired & share stories.  In today’s fast paced, media run, #metoo world, it is so important to have women that have your back.  I joined the group already knowing a few familiar faces but with each event I get the opportunity to connect with women who continue to surprise and inspire me.

Earlier this week we had our VIP Membership Dinner at the cutest outdoor venue in Pittsburgh called Bay41.  As the sun set over the candle lit dinner table, women from all walks of life sat down to break bread, share stories & cheers to the future.

What’s an event without a great theme & some fantastic photo ops?  The night’s theme was boho-chic so I wore this embroidered shift dress from Old Navy with my faux leather ponte jacket by Kut from the Kloth (Stitch Fix) and my peep toe booties also from Stitch Fix.

Celebrating Easter in Style

Well another month has past & I finally find myself paying attention to The Wexford Housewife.  I don’t know how I let time pass by so quickly without posting anything on the blog.  I know I should be smart by planning ahead & mapping out my month, but I always end up putting everything else first…my son & husband, friends & family, hosting holidays, Stitch Fix, etc. etc. My Blog seems to always take a back seat.  Does anyone else have/had this problem?  How do you make time for everything & your blog, please share!

Speaking of sharing, I am so excited to share details from our Easter celebration!  Ever since our son was born, we’ve hosted a Sunday Funday brunch for our family & friends consisting of yummy finger foods, endless mimosas for the adults & a scavenger hunt for the kids.  This year I tried a new recipe, Hot Ham & Cheese Party Rolls, which were a huge hit!  I’ve linked the recipe here in case you’re in need of a new, easy appetizer.

Below I’ve included some pictures of my stylish little family on Easter Sunday.  My husband kept things casual with a Vineyard Vines Polo & AE Jeans, while my son rocked a look from Gymboree complete with bug printed suspenders & a linen vest (not pictured).  My outfit is from my favorite place, Marshalls, and was under $50.

I am so blessed that our families get along & we’re able to celebrate together.  Nothing is better than being surrounded by loved ones during the holidays.

Friendships & Fashion

“The best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, defend each other and think the other deserves the world.”

I read this quote recently and it really resonated with me.  It’s so important to surround ourselves with people that bring out the best in us, who encourage us to achieve our goals and follow our dreams, who listen to us , laugh with us and love us for who we are.  Last year I had to take a step back & reevaluate some of the relationships in my life.  It wasn’t easy but important decisions never are.

I am so grateful for the friendships I have formed throughout the years.  From my ride-or-die childhood friends who call me out on my shit, to the moms I’ve met through Moms Club who understand my daily struggles with a toddler, to the women I’ve met through Stitch Fix that have become not only style inspirations but dear friends.

This is also one of the reasons I am so excited to get involved with my local blogging community.  From the Style Collective events I’ve attend and the communication I’ve seen online, the Pittsburgh blogging community is strong and continually growing.  I cannot wait to start attending more events and having the chance to get to know these beautiful women.

If you are interested in getting involved with your local blogging community feel free to reach out!  I’m more than willing to share the steps I took ♥
