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.

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!
