#OOTD – Off The Shoulder

I always look forward to date night with the hubs.  Not only do we have the option to sit at the bar rather than a booth big enough for a booster seat, but I get to showcase my favorite new fashion finds!

Our most recent night out consisted of happy hour, some impromptu wine tasting & a late night movie.  I decided to wear my new off the shoulder knit from my latest Fix!  Not only was this top super comfortable but it was only $38!  I love finding chic styles at a steal!

I’m basically rocking head to toe Stitch Fix in this picture, which is quite alright with me!  These Just Black Skinnies are my favorite go-to denim and this satchel/crossbody bag has become a wardrobe staple!

#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!

#OOTN – Date Night

I tried to write a cute & clever story to accompany this blog post, but to be honest I am exhausted from the holidays & my creative side is apparently taking a nap.  Nevertheless, I am so excited to share this date night look from the holiday season.  I somehow convinced my husband to see The Nutcracker with me.  And, believe it or not he actually enjoyed it!

………………………………………………..

Last Christmas he gifted me this beautiful Tory Burch dress which I haven’t had the chance to wear  yet.  This was the perfect opportunity!  I styled it with my Tory wedges and new burgundy satchel from Stitch Fix for a simple yet chic ensemble great for date night.

Before the show we enjoyed a romantic dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse in the Cultural District of Pittsburgh.  My husband is wearing a gingham shirt by Untucked with a heather grey blazer from Nordstrom; he cleans up pretty well!

Finally, I also had the chance to wear this vintage dress coat gifted to me by my mother.  My father bought it for her when she was my age; I am so lucky she kept it all these years!

#OOTD – Baby it’s cold outside

Cold lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes…winter has officially arrived in Pittsburgh!  As much as I dread getting my toddler bundled up to leave the house, I love winter fashion.  Cozy knits,  draped cardigans, boots & scarves, all of it!  Though it would be easier to just throw on leggings & an oversized sweater I’ve been trying to maintain my sanity through chic ensembles that make me look & feel great!  Plus, I grabbed all of these styles at great prices, which makes my hubby happy too 🙂

#OOTD – Sleeveless Cardigan

Thanks to StitchFix I have found my new favorite fall layering piece!  This gray, sleeveless cardigan by RD Style is not only comfortable & stylish but extremely versatile & easy to wash.  So far I have paired it with three different looks this season and I can’t wait to keep experimenting with it

I’m also excited to share this sleeveless cardigan I picked up from a local fashion truck Mack & Mario.  The owner Lori has such an eye for seasonal trends & this reversible cardigan is no exception!  It’s so cozy & chic and will be the perfect layering piece throughout fall & winter.

Celebrating my birthday in style

I love celebrating birthdays!  Any excuse to get together with friends & family is always a plus in my book.  From wine tastings, to dance parties, dinner dates & live music, this year’s birthday was a huge success…and the most fashionable I might add.

As much I thought I would dread being in my 30’s, I’m loving it!  I have an amazing husband & son, the best friends a girl could ask for & a family that continues to show their love and support.  Check out some of my favorite looks from this year’s week long celebration!

Bringing out my romantic side with bold floral prints while wine tasting in Ohio.  This blouse & the distressed skinnies are from my latest Fix; two of my favorite pieces to date!

What’s a birthday without dinner & drinks with loved ones!  I originally wore this dress while celebrating my wedding in Punta Cana; I was so excited to wear it again for my birthday this year.

Keeping things simple & chic for our winery hop in the Laurel Highlands of PA.  What a great weekend experiencing new wines & listening to live music with my husband and our close friends!

Spring Favorites

Today I am sharing some of my favorite outfits I’ve put together this spring.  From mixing patterns, to Stitch Fix favorites, this season has been full of fun outfits I cannot wait to repeat throughout the summer!

Mixing Patterns

Mixing patterns is easy when you don’t put too much thought into it.  The key is to mix prints of varying scales i.e. large florals & small polka dots, or in my case thin stripes & thick diamonds.  I like to stay within the same color family, but you can always combine two different prints that share a single color.

Unexpected pieces

The high finally hit 90 degrees the other day so the thought of wearing anything less than a dress was intolerable.  I didn’t have a lightweight maxi dress on hand so I turned this maxi skirt into a dress and I’m obsessed with the result!

Stitch Fix Favorites

I’ve received so many great pieces from Stitch Fix lately; styling myself has its perks!  For an indoor work event this week, I decided to keep things simple & chic with a little bohemian flair.  This was easy to do thanks to my new Renee C Tank & Kut from the Kloth Faux Leather Jacket.  #StitchFixLife

As with most of my clients this time of year, I wanted a Fix that was sure to get me in the mood for spring.  I have to say, I didn’t disappoint…

Skies are Blue – Leslee Shirt Dress.  This A-line silhouette is lightweight & perfect for spring.  The cinched waist is adjustable so this dress can technically be worn as a shift style if wanted.  I cannot wait to wear it while wine tasting this weekend.

THML – Jaye Cutout Shoulder Top.  What better way to show some skin without baring it all than with a cutout shoulder top.  This is one of my favorite trends; I just can’t get enough of it!  I paired this top with my Just Black Adorra Skinny’s from a previous Fix, but I think this would also look great with a distressed denim or boyfriend jean.

Market & Spruce – Paully Crochet Sleeve Knit Top.  While out shopping this past weekend I noticed lace sleeves everywhere I turned.  I was so excited to send myself this romantic take on a preppy style.  Who would’ve thought mixing these two styles would have such a classy end result.

MIA – Esie Laser-Cut Flats. Now that Stitch Fix is carrying shoes in all areas, I just had to send myself this fantastic pointed toe flat.  I am crushing on coral & this edgy take on a classic style has my heart melting…in love!
