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.

Wannabe Model

I am by no means a model.  Let’s be honest, my age is starting to show, you can see the toddler-influenced bags under my eyes, I don’t know where to place my hands or how to tilt my head properly.  But, with that being said, I love playing dress up & taking pictures.  Being apart of the Pittsburgh Blogger Babes has given me the opportunity to network with photographers and bloggers that I otherwise wouldn’t have met.  I’ve made some quick friendships & shared some laughs with some fantastic women!

My most recent shoot was with Lisha Lee Photography at the Mansions on Fifth.  Working with Alicia was amazing!  She is a mommy, just like me, so right away we hit it off.  She made me laugh & feel comfortable in front of the camera, giving me simple directions on where to look & how to pose.  If you’re in the Pittsburgh area I would definitely recommend working with her.

For this shoot, I decided to wear this new Lace Detail Shift Dress from Francesca’s.  It’s currently sold out online, but I’ve linked a similar dress that’s on sale for under $20.  To play down the romantic detailing I layered my Old Navy Denim Jacket on top and added black patent leather pointed toe pumps.  I picked up these pumps from Forever21 for next to nothing, and they’ve quickly become my go-to heels for any look.
