Babes Who Brunch

Sundays are by far my favorite day of the week.  It’s a chance to relax from the weekend & mentally prepare for the week ahead.  Sometimes, I even get the opportunity to go out for brunch, which is the best way to spend a Sunday if you ask me.  What can be better than mimosas, cappuccinos & eating breakfast that someone else prepared?

Last weekend a few of my girlfriends & I tried a brunch spot in the Strip District of Pittsburgh called DiAnoia’s Eatery.  DiAnoia’s is a neighborhood gem!  An Italian deli & café by day and a full service restaurant by night.  A hot spot like this calls for a reservation, and even though we had one, we still had to wait a half hour.  However, the manager treated us to mimosas, so I can’t really complain.  Plus, the lemon ricotta pancakes were amazing; I’m still dreaming about them!

My good friend Adrienne from Wanderlust and Wardrobes & I always seem to show up rocking similar looks.  It’s always unplanned, but you know what they say, great minds style alike.  This time, we both chose to wear black floral layering pieces paired with dark wash skinnies and a trench.

With full bellies & happy hearts we strolled around the Strip District and came across some beautiful street art.  This wrap-around floral mural just screams spring, and photo op!  As a blogger, I can never resist a good backdrop ♥

“All that I’m after is a life full of laughter”

Whether your Sundays are spent relaxing, brunching with your girlfriends, or heading to church…I hope it’s full of love, laughter & a little bit of sunshine!

Statement Clutch

I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last post!  I always start my day with the intention of putting something new up on the blog, but then life happens placing my energy & attention elsewhere.  I swear my New Years resolution is to make it a priority!

As a SAHM to an active toddler I don’t always get to accessorize an outfit the way I want.  I love long layered necklaces & small chic clutches but the practicality of them is slim to none.  With that being said, I have found my new favorite go-to statement clutch perfect for my busy mom on-the-go lifestyle.

This Street Level clutch from Stitch Fix was under $50, has two interior zip pockets and a detachable chain crossbody strap.  Despite its size, this bag is super spacious.  I am able to carry my phone, ID/credit cards, a small snack for little man, band aids, hand wipes and my go-to lipgloss.

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
