#OOTD – Girls Night Out

Well, it’s official, my first Girls Night of 2018 is in the books!  With the holidays being such a blur, my girlfriends and I decided to do our annual gift exchange after the New Year.  We put together a big spread of finger foods, drank red wine & caught up over exchanging gifts.
For our get together I decided to wear this new cold shoulder blouse I recently picked up at Marshalls, my distressed Old Navy Skinnies, cuffed above the ankle, and these Express booties from last winter.  I’ve included links to the styles I wore so you can shop these looks, or at least something similar!

My girlfriend Jackie lives right on Lake Erie so as you can imagine her views are breathtaking.  I just had to share this picture I captured Saturday night of the water covered in ice just before sunset.  I could sit by her window all day, such beautiful views!

Do you guys have any fun holiday traditions you share with your friends?  I’d love to hear what you do to celebrate!

#OOTN – Vaca Fashion

Two weeks ago I took my first girls trip since having my son almost 3 years ago.  Needless to say, this was a much-needed getaway!  My girlfriends & I headed to Miami to celebrate a friend’s bachelorette party.  Our days were full of sunshine & tropical drinks and our nights were spent dancing into the late hours.

While on vacation I had the chance to try out some trends that aren’t necessarily appropriate for heading to the park or an afternoon play date.  The first night I rocked this easy-wear romper that I picked up from Forever21 for under $20.  It paired nicely with my black strappy heels & faux leather clutch.

I was planning on wearing an off-the-shoulder royal blue romper on our second night out, but ended up burning a hole in it with the condo’s not so trusty iron :-/  I ended up borrowing this sheer cutout bodysuit & faux leather skirt from my girlfriends; thank goodness I have stylish friends!

On our last night, we headed to Nikki Beach for drinks & dancing in the sand.  I kept things simple & chic with this form fitting crop top from Express & these lightweight trousers from Target that I snagged for $6.99!

#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!
