Olive you too #OOTD

As the weather continues to cool here in Pittsburgh rich colors & textures have made a huge presence in my daily wardrobe.  From cozy on-trend knits to oversized ponchos & an array of olive green, my daily outfits have been screaming all things fall!  Below I’ve added some of my favorite easy to wear looks & layering pieces, all of which are under $100.

Pictured Below – Emory Park poncho cardigan from Stitch Fix ($48) and a long sleeve grey knit tee from Marshalls ($12.99).  A versatile look that transitioned from preschool drop-off to brunch & shopping with my mom

All the fall feels

It’s another dark, rainy day here in Wexford, PA but I have to admit, I love it!  I’m currently cozied up in my morning room sipping fresh hot coffee and admiring all of the colorful leaves outside of our big, curtain-less windows.  Fridays have officially become my favorite day of the week.  Not because it’s the kick off to the weekend, but because it’s the only day we don’t have to rush out the door for school, swim lessons or play dates.  I get to enjoy a few blissful moments to myself while the little man watches cartoons.  It’s the little things…

Anyways, enough about my love for Friday fall mornings.  I wanted to share a quick shot of yesterday’s Outfit Of The Day.  There’s no doubt about it, it is officially fall in Pittsburgh!  Like many other women, fall is my favorite season.  Something about the crisp autumn air & the ability to wear cozy knits, layers & booties.  It gives me all the fall feels!

While in Ohio last weekend I had the chance to stop in a local tanning + boutique which is where I picked the cute, cozy knit top pictured below.  The tanning salon turned boutique was full of on-trend, price conscious styles perfect for fall & winter.  The boutique currently only sells in-store but I heard a rumor they’re looking to branch out online soon.  I’ll keep you posted!

Fashion on wheels

Last night I hosted yet another fun Ladies Night Out!  Our night was full of drinking vino, eating yummy finger foods & shopping the latest trends thanks to the Mack & Mario fashion truck.  Mack & Mario is a store on wheels, think food truck but for all things fabulous.

This concept of free-range fashion is a game changer!  The owner Lori made our event a huge hit with her outgoing personality, artisan jewelry and on-trend apparel.

My girlfriends & I had a blast shopping inside the truck!  There was no pressure from pushy sales associates, just friendly advice from the owner on how to coordinate pieces.  The apparel was somewhat limited with only one or two sizes available in each style, making them unique & one of a kind.

Some of  my favorite pieces included a white tulle skirt a la Carrie Bradshaw, an off-the-shoulder tunic with lace/fringe detailing and lightweight brass bracelets with individual state charms.

#OOTD – Split Back Blouse

Last night I had the opportunity to attend a banquet for my Mom’s Club.  I know what you’re thinking…Mom’s Club?  But, joining this group was one of the best decisions I made after having my son.  Not only do we have play dates, share advice & go on field trips, but we also have fun “mom only” get togethers.  Our banquet last night consisted of dinner & drinks at a local Italian restaurant.  The spread was fantastic, the wine was overpoured & the conversation was hilarious; I love these women!

I hate to say this out loud in fear of jinxing myself, but I think spring has finally sprung in Pittsburgh!  The sun was shining a warm 70 degrees yesterday making it the perfect day to wear my new split-back blouse.  I was waiting for warm weather to showcase this style since layering a jacket on top would defeat the purpose of the split-back.

I decided to pair this bold blouse with a dark wash flare denim and my Tory accessories.  I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I love mixing casual or trendy styles with classic pieces such as my Tory Burch wedges & handbag.  I added a bold lipstick that matched the pink hue of the blouse making this outfit that much more playful!
