Falling in love with fall fashion

This is my favorite time of year to get dressed.  The textured fabrications, ankle booties, and cozy layering pieces…you just can’t go wrong.  Over the weekend I went to brunch with some of my Style Collective sisters at a local hot spot or, The Whale.  Style Collective is an online supportive community with influencer education that empowers women to find their purpose, be inclusive, and achieve success.  If you’ve read my posts in the past you know that I love a supportive community so joining Style Collective was a no brainer for me.

For brunch, I decided to wear my new striped shift dress from Stitch Fix along with a faux fur vest and peep toe wedge booties, also from Stitch Fix.  This faux vest has been a fall staple of mine for quite some time that I can’t even remember where & when I purchased it.  I did link some similar options below for you guys to shop!

How stylish is my Style Collective sister & good friend, Adrienne?  She has such an eye for thrifting and throwing together a perfectly polished look.  Be sure to check out her Instagram feed wanderlustandwardrobes I love how she styled this leopard dress!  How are you guys wearing leopard this season? I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of leopard pointed toe flats, but haven’t found a pair that I am in love with yet.  If you have any favorites send them my way!

Pgh Fall Market + Event

This isn’t the first time I’ve said this & it definitely won’t be my last – I love the creative community here in Pittsburgh.  Every time I attend an event or immerge myself into the blogging/styling world I am amazed with the goal-oriented, power houses that I meet.  Today was no exception…

This afternoon I attended an event hosted by Wildfire Pgh – Pittsburgh’s first boutique market & virtual look book.  Seven local boutiques filled the brick patio of a local brewery with their fall fashions, accessories and handmade goods.  I was not prepared for the chilly outdoor temps but that problem was quickly solved when I purchased a fringe hem poncho from Penny Layne Boutique (pictured below).

I always find myself leaving these events feeling inspired, grateful, and proud…Inspired by the people I meet, their stories and their goals, Grateful for the friends I’ve made and the support I receive, and Proud of myself for starting The Wexford Housewife, for becoming a part of this creative community & being willing to change and grow.

I’ve included links to the boutiques that were at today’s event so you can shop their latest styles & fall looks.

Coffee & Kimonos

Two things I can’t get enough of…fresh brewed coffee & lightweight kimonos.  This morning while little man was at school I met a friend for breakfast at one of my favorite local spots Walnut Grill.  We enjoyed our kids-free meal with Baileys filled coffee and uninterrupted conversation.  Even though temps hit 80° here in Pittsburgh I couldn’t wait to wear this long sleeve kimono from Marshalls.  I stayed cool & stylish by layering it with a cotton-blend tank and my breathable Kensie Jeans.
