Graphic Tee #OOTD

I love a good V-neck tee!  I mean, who doesn’t love to be comfortable & stylish?!  I recently ordered this graphic tee from a local online boutique called The Trend.  It was only $22.50 and arrived within a few days of ordering, win-win!  They have so many cute tees, but their sizing is limited so you gotta get ’em while they’re hot!

Sizes range from small-large, so I ordered a small.  It fits great besides being a little long, which was easily fixed with a front knot.  I wore it out to breakfast with my Kensie Skinnies and Forever21 Sandals, then transitioned it playtime outside with my boys with black leggings & slip-on sandals.

Mother’s Day Weekend Style

In the (almost) 4 years I’ve been a mamma bear, this was the best Mother’s Day thus far.  Each year it just keeps getting better & better.  Partly because little man is getting older and our interaction & communication with one another has grown.  We kicked off the weekend with a Mother’s Day Tea at his preschool where we made handprint art together, enjoyed tea & cookies and his class performed songs they had practiced for weeks; seriously the cutest thing ever!

For the Tea, I wore my favorite black shift dress from Stitch Fix along with a lightweight Kimono I recently purchased on sale at Target for under $20 and my black high heeled ankle booties.

The weekend continued with my quarterly Style Collective meeting which encouraged us to celebrate the women in our lives by bringing them with us.  My mom is everything to me, so I was so excited when I could include her.  She’s been my biggest supporter with every new venture I take so it was nice to have her by my side.  Mom, if you’re reading this I Love You ♥

The event was hosted at a local Pittsburgh boutique called Vintage Grace Boutique.  I’ve followed them on IG for a while but this was my first time in their store & I am obsessed!  Their clothes & accessories are on-trend and priced fairly well.  I ended up purchasing the cutest blouse dress and lightweight jumpsuit.  For the event, I decided to wear my new kimono again layered over top a vintage-inspired lace detail knit, my black cropped trousers & strappy high heels.

Each Mother’s Day I host a brunch at our house.  I love any excuse to host a get together & Mother’s Day gives us a chance to bring our families together which is always a plus.  We put together a breakfast-inspired spread along with mimosas & a giant cream puff.  I decided to wear my new Blouse Dress from Vintage Grace Boutique as a tunic with my plum skinnies & black pumps.  The dress was under $50; I’ve attached the link for you to shop.

Whether you’re a mom yourself or just celebrated the women in your life, I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother’s Day weekend.

Body Positive Swimwear

As a mom in my early 30’s I am still learning to love my body.  It’s a journey.  And, like most women I have good days beaming with confidence and self-love & bad days where I find myself full of self-doubt and insecurities.

Regardless of our size, our stretch marks, our freckles and dimples, we should love our bodies!  As women, our bodies do amazing things.  We should be worshiped, especially by ourselves.

With that being said, I am so excited to share that I’ve recently partnered with Swim Classy to promote body positive vibes and on-trend swimwear!  Swim Classy encourages women to look & feel their best.  They use unedited & untouched photos to promote their swimwear so women can gain confidence as opposed to losing it.  Their suits are not only sexy & on-trend but comfortable and great for any shape & size.

Below I am wearing the Electra Three Piece Suit in a size medium.  I chose to tie the string around my waist but you can wrap it around & knot it in the back or rock it as a choker.  I am always a little uncomfortable with showing my stomach so the high-waist bottom & tie-waist were perfect for me!

“Social media has already been taken over with how us ladies are EXPECTED to look, and if we don’t look a certain way we should feel ashamed. Swim Classy’s goal is to one day override that and create a new trend for women- and that is to LOVE yourself just the way you are!”
