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.

Date Night Look

If you’ve read my blog in the past, you know how much I love a night out, especially date night with the hubs.  It’s been a minute since we enjoyed a night out together without little man, so this past weekend we pulled out all the stops!  We dressed our best, grabbed a box of cigars & headed out for a night on the town…

We started our night downtown with dirty martinis & red bull on the rocks; my man doesn’t drink, but still manages to be the life of the party, which is one of the many reasons I love him.  We met friends for dinner at the Grand Concourse, an old railroad station turned restaurant which is “nestled comfortably on the riverfront and overlooking the downtown skyline”.  Afterwards, we ventured to the Rivers Casino for some more drinks, live music & a little gambling.

My outfit of the night is the perfect example of inexpensive & chic.  My skirt & pumps are from Forever 21, my crop top is from TJ Maxx & my faux leather clutch is from Target.  I love fashion on a dime!!!

Stitch Fix Reveal

One of the best perks of being a stylist for Stitch Fix is having the opportunity to style myself.  I haven’t sent myself a Fix in quite some time, but I just couldn’t resist after seeing all of the rich colors & textures for fall.  For those that aren’t familiar, Stitch Fix is a styling service for men & women that combines technology with the personal touch of seasoned style experts.  If you’re interested in learning more feel free to reach out to me or click on the link I provided & it will redirect you to our website.

For this Fix, I focused on all things fall…new dark wash denim, casual long sleeve knits & slip-on flats.  I was a little hesitant to send myself pull-on jeans but after hearing all of the positive feedback from my clients on the Liverpool brand I just had to try them.  And, I Love These Jeans!  Not only are they super slimming, but they’re extremely comfortable as well.  I plan on wearing them later this week for a girls night out so stay tuned on how they hold up throughout the night.

Fall is the perfect season for mixing textures & trends which is why I’m loving this Woven Poplin Knit by Noe Heights (pictured below).  The bowtie cuffs add a little romantic flair while the pinstripe pattern creates a classic look.  I paired this knit with my Just Black Skinnies (also from Stitch Fix) and the Report Footwear Stud Detail Flats for a casual-chic ensemble great for Sunday brunch.

Speaking of mixing textures, this Mixed Material Knit by Kaileigh has stolen my heart!  Not only is this top made in the USA, but it’s super soft & stylish too.  I can’t wait to wear it with a burgundy skinny jean & peep toe wedge.
