Fashion Bloggers Unite

I am excited to share that I’ve officially become a member of Style Collective!  For those that aren’t familiar, Style Collective is a “blogging community and platform for female influencers to connect, grow, and learn how to be successful bloggers and entrepreneurs”.  When I first started my blog 2 years ago, I wasn’t sure which direction it would take or how much energy I would direct towards it.  But after trial and error I think I have found my footing focusing on fashion, daily outfit inspirations and the occasional momism.

Over the weekend I attended Pittsburgh’s first official Style Collective meetup.  It was the perfect opportunity to break all the rules…who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?!  I also showcased my grandmother’s vintage leather coat which was recently handed down to me.  Can we just talk about this faux fur tho… 😉

This faux fur stole makes the whole jacket!  I’m in love; thanks Grandma.

Resale Shop Experience

If you’ve been reading my posts lately you know how much I love a good deal.  From Marshalls, to TJ Maxx and Target…I always seem to find something fantastic I can add to my wardrobe.  Not only are their prices super affordable but these stores make it easy to bring a very strong-willed toddler along for the ride 🙂

The other day, thanks to my Mother in Law, I was able to do some shopping sans the little man and came across a local resale shop called Style Encore.  I had my reservations since the only resale shop I’ve been to is Plato’s Closet which is geared towards a younger audience.  I have to say, I was impressed!  Not only were the employees friendly and helpful but the store was organized and brightly lit.

I tried on a few things and ended up falling in love with a top by Bar III for only $14 which I believe is carried at Macy’s.  I wore it for a recent date night with my dark wash skinnies from Marshalls, black pumps from Forever 21 and burgundy satchel from Stitch Fix.

#OOTD Fall Layers

It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Pittsburgh & I couldn’t be more excited!  This is by far my favorite season; the crisp autumn mornings, the holidays & family gatherings and of course, an excuse to drink hot rum apple cider!

Yesterday my husband & I decided to do a spontaneous family date night.  Another favorite of mine 🙂 Dinner & drinks, a little shopping, topped off with game night with our little man.  If you haven’t played Pop the Pig yet, you’re missing out.

It was one of those in-between evenings where the weather isn’t quite cold but it’s not hot either.  A ‘bring a layer’ kind of night.  I decided to wear my new Liverpool Bootcut Jeans from my recent Fix along with this lightweight elbow patch knit I picked up from Marshalls & my go-to boyfriend blazer from H&M.  The perfect toddler-approved date night look!

My Favorite Summer Looks

As the days get shorter & the weather (slowly) starts to cool I wanted to share some of my favorite summer looks.  Each of these outfits came from…you guessed it, Marshalls!  I am so lucky to have two stores within close proximity to our house, both that are fully stocked with on-trend styles at great prices!

This off-the-shoulder romper was the perfect go-to style for celebrating the 4th of July!  All I needed to complete this look was my favorite wedges & a glass of sangria 😉

Another day, another blue off the shoulder outfit & a glass of red.  My brother & I were registered to run a 5K in June but the weather wasn’t in our favor so we opted for dinner & drinks instead.  This was also the perfect opportunity to wear this lightweight ruffled blouse & a top knot!

Last but not least is this cold shoulder floral blouse that I’ve managed to wear several times throughout the summer.  First, to my son’s birthday party with a pair of olive chino shorts, below for girls night out with my favorite dark wash skinnies & lastly with a light wash distressed boyfriend jean & canvas flats.

#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!
