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.

As always – comfortable & effortless housewife style xoxx

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.

#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 🙂
