Valentine’s Day OOTD

Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with your honey or Galentine’s Day with your besties, I’ve gathered some of my favorite looks that are sure to keep you looking & feeling your best.

You can never go wrong with a little black dress! This romantic-inspired style is from The Loft is under $100 and is perfect for dinner & drinks. I paired it with a statement heel & fringe earrings but you can easily rock it with a bold red pump or heeled ankle bootie. Click on the link below for purchasing details ūüôā

When I think of Valentine’s day I think of red & pink hues which makes this flutter sleeve dress perfect for a night out on Feb. 14th. I purchased this dress from Versona for under $50 but I’ve also linked some similar styles below.

Black on black is always in style & my go-to for a girls night out. Not only are the vertical pinstripes on these pants super slimming but they elongate this 5 ft nothing frame. Pants like these can easily be paired with a bodysuit or a crop top like I did here. Though I wasn’t able to link these exact items I’ve included similar styles; just follow the link!

As always – comfortable & effortless housewife style xoxx

Falling in love with fall fashion

This is my favorite time of year to get dressed.¬† The textured fabrications, ankle booties, and cozy layering pieces…you just can’t go wrong.¬† Over the weekend I went to brunch with some of my Style Collective sisters at a local hot spot or, The Whale.¬† Style Collective is an online supportive community with influencer education that empowers women to find their purpose, be inclusive, and achieve success.¬† If you’ve read my posts in the past you know that I love a supportive community so joining Style Collective was a no brainer for me.

For brunch, I decided to wear my new striped shift dress from Stitch Fix along with a faux fur vest and peep toe wedge booties, also from Stitch Fix.¬† This faux vest has been a fall staple of mine for quite some time that I can’t even remember where & when I purchased it.¬† I did link some similar options below for you guys to shop!

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of leopard pointed toe flats, but haven’t found a pair that I am in love with yet.¬† If you have any favorites send them my way!

Wine Women & Shoes

Last week I had the opportunity to attend Wine Women & Shoes –¬†a “two-part signature event series (that) creates an enhanced atmosphere of giving where community-minded, philanthropic women (and a few good men) gather to sip, shop, savor, and support a worthy cause in an exciting, chic and innovative way.”

I wasn’t sure what to expect since this was my first time attending the event, but I can honestly say that I was blown away.¬†¬†As I entered¬†the ballroom at the Rivers Casino I was offered a glass of champagne from one of the “Shoe Guys” and encouraged to browse the numerous designer vendors including local clothing, jewelry and sweets boutiques.¬†¬†Before being seated for dinner I¬†enjoyed wine tasting & finger foods while mingling with other like-minded women.

During the seated¬†dinner¬†there was¬†a fabulous fashion show showcasing clothing from Pure Barre and Serendipity Boutique¬†followed by a live auction and handcrafted desserts.¬† The benefactor for this years’ event was¬†the Pittsburgh Emergency Medical Foundation which is committed to providing financial support for research and educational endeavors in the field of emergency medicine.

For the event I decided to wear a little black dress, because, well…¬†you can never go wrong with a LBD.¬† ¬†This¬†petite wraparound flounce flare dress from Loft was originally $89.50 but I picked it up on sale for 30% off.¬† I paired it with statement heels and dangly earrings for a chic, romantic-inspired look that kept me comfortable & stylish.
