Graphic Tee #OOTD

I love a good V-neck tee!  I mean, who doesn’t love to be comfortable & stylish?!  I recently ordered this graphic tee from a local online boutique called The Trend.  It was only $22.50 and arrived within a few days of ordering, win-win!  They have so many cute tees, but their sizing is limited so you gotta get ’em while they’re hot!

Sizes range from small-large, so I ordered a small.  It fits great besides being a little long, which was easily fixed with a front knot.  I wore it out to breakfast with my Kensie Skinnies and Forever21 Sandals, then transitioned it playtime outside with my boys with black leggings & slip-on sandals.

The Unofficial Start to Summer #OOTD

Memorial Day weekend has come & gone which in my mind means it’s officially summer!  Little man is done with preschool and I am already daydreaming about the BBQs, pool days and late nights spent with friends & family.

Over the weekend we kicked off the unofficial start to summer by heading to my parents in Ohio.  We played cornhole during the day & grilled out at night, went to a local festival, ate lunch by the lake, not once but twice and just enjoyed being together in the sunshine.  Oh, summertime, I love you!

It was hot & sticky out the day we went to the Strawberry Festival so I kept things casual & comfortable with my cut-off denim shorts, a cold shoulder tee & straw fedora from Target.  This graphic tee was only $14.99; I’ve linked it here.  I’ve also linked this medium crossbody bag from Amazon which was only $24 and comes in 3 other colors.  Ever since I ditched the diaper bag I am all about practicality vs. style, and luckily this bag is both!  Though this picture isn’t the best quality, it’s one of my favorites.  It’s a perfect example of a day in the life… ♥

Growing up by Lake Erie was always an adventure.  I spent my younger years at Cedar Point and the beach then as I got older my friends & I ventured to the islands and enjoyed summer nights on the Booze Cruise.  I am so excited that I now get to make memories by the Lake with my husband & little man.  Eating lunch by the water while watching the boats come in & out was such a treat over the weekend.  I cannot wait to start taking little man to the beach!

Though we didn’t plan our coordinating looks, I am loving our outfits!  You can’t go wrong with olive & grey.

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.
