#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!

#OOTN – New Years Eve

Can you believe it’s 2017 already?!  Though I hate that my little man is quickly becoming a toddler before my eyes, I love the start of a new year!  It’s as if you get a clean slate – a fresh start at love, friendship, personal growth, not to mention new fashion trends & outfit options!

The last few years we’ve hosted a NYE get together at our house.  It’s become tradition to do fondue & create fun martinis.  Though it’s just a small get together with close friends & family, I love any opportunity to get dressed up!  I was hoping to wear a new LBD by Tory Burch that my husband surprised me with, but I had to exchange sizes & am still waiting for the new size to arrive.  Rather, I put together a sparkly number that, believe or not, I found at Forever 21.

I have never been one to wear a body suit, but I have to admit I am kind of a fan.  It was the perfect style to pair with this long pencil skirt!  I originally tried it on with my high rise jeans which I loved, so I may be rocking that look soon too.

By the way, doesn’t my girlfriend look super chic in her Louboutin pumps and LBD from Stitch Fix!?  Major style goals!

#OOTN – Date Night

I tried to write a cute & clever story to accompany this blog post, but to be honest I am exhausted from the holidays & my creative side is apparently taking a nap.  Nevertheless, I am so excited to share this date night look from the holiday season.  I somehow convinced my husband to see The Nutcracker with me.  And, believe it or not he actually enjoyed it!

Last Christmas he gifted me this beautiful Tory Burch dress which I haven’t had the chance to wear  yet.  This was the perfect opportunity!  I styled it with my Tory wedges and new burgundy satchel from Stitch Fix for a simple yet chic ensemble great for date night.

Before the show we enjoyed a romantic dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse in the Cultural District of Pittsburgh.  My husband is wearing a gingham shirt by Untucked with a heather grey blazer from Nordstrom; he cleans up pretty well!

Finally, I also had the chance to wear this vintage dress coat gifted to me by my mother.  My father bought it for her when she was my age; I am so lucky she kept it all these years!
