Stitch Fix Reveal

As a Senior Stylist for Stitch Fix, I not only get the opportunity to style some amazing women, but I also get to style myself.  After seeing all of the summer-inspired styles in our inventory, I couldn’t resist sending myself a Fix.  Scroll down to see the pieces I decided to keep & send back, and some quick styling tips for each item.

Lux & Co Knit Maxi Dress

This is by far my favorite style from this Fix.  I love the pattern mixing and pockets, the lightweight fabrication and the figure-flattering A-line silhouette.  It’s a little long, but I’m only 5’0″ so that’s normal for me; nothing some strappy wedges can’t fix.  I cannot wait to wear this dress out for date night with a floral statement necklace & a black clutch.

Nine Britton Jemima Knit Dress

This lightweight shift dress is perfect for summer!  Not only does it have pockets but a built in shelf bra as well.  It will look great worn during the day with a strappy leather sandal then to dinner on an outdoor patio with a denim jacket and an espadrille wedge.

Market & Spruce Belt Bag AND Pistola Button Front Frayed Hem Skinny Jeans

I am in love with both of these styles!  The belt bag is unlike anything I currently have in my wardrobe plus it’s only $38, and the Pistola Jeans have an elongating high-rise waist & unique distressed detailing.  I paired the jeans with several different tops, but I think a knotted tee or body suit will look best.

Fun2Fun Casterino V-Neck Top

This is only style that I wasn’t sold on.  I love the woven detailing around the neckline but I think the color washes me out a little.  It’s a great silhouette, so I may try it again but in a different color/pattern.

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.
