#OOTD – Off The Shoulder

I always look forward to date night with the hubs.  Not only do we have the option to sit at the bar rather than a booth big enough for a booster seat, but I get to showcase my favorite new fashion finds!

Our most recent night out consisted of happy hour, some impromptu wine tasting & a late night movie.  I decided to wear my new off the shoulder knit from my latest Fix!  Not only was this top super comfortable but it was only $38!  I love finding chic styles at a steal!

I’m basically rocking head to toe Stitch Fix in this picture, which is quite alright with me!  These Just Black Skinnies are my favorite go-to denim and this satchel/crossbody bag has become a wardrobe staple!

#OOTD – Flirty & Feminine

It was one of those mornings where the stars aligned…my toddler was in a fantastic mood & we just so happened to be running errands near the mall.  What’s a girl to do but stop in & do some quick shopping!

I can’t remember the last time I shopped at Forever21.  It’s a store I frequented often in college, but being that I’m 31 I just never think of it as an option.  However, something about their window display caught my eye so we popped in.  To my surprise, I found some fantastic pieces that are not only super stylish but decent quality.

I am completely obsessed with this lace crop top & floral midi skirt.  Two pieces I wouldn’t be quick to pair together, but something about it just works!

And, pairing this lace top with sleek black leggings isn’t too bad either!  All I need to complete this look is high-heeled ankle booties & this grey faux leather moto jacket.

#OOTD -Dark Denim & Linen Blends

Nothing is better than catching up with an old friend over good wine & small plates.  Last night I was so lucky to see my friend who was visiting from out of town.  We ate, drank & shared our adventures in Motherhood.  I didn’t want to say goodbye… but unfortunately all good things must come to an end.  Safe travels back to Denver my love!

It finally feels like fall in Pittsburgh, which means I can finally wear dark colored denim & ankle booties!  I am obsessed with this dark burgundy denim & linen blend knit, both of which I picked up for less than $50.  Bring on the cooler weather mother nature; I’m ready!

#OOTD – Floral Romper

Yesterday I had the opportunity to get together with some of the amazing stylists I work with to view our new fall line.  Though I am anxiously awaiting crisp autumn days so I can wear scissor cut jeans, booties & oversized knits mother nature decided it would be a warm 90 degrees.  So, rather than sweat my face off in my new fall favorites, I decided to rock this floral romper I’ve had stashed in my closet all summer.

As the weather starts to cool I’ll transition this romper to the fall with an olive ankle bootie & sleeveless cardigan. Stay tuned for the fall-inspired look!

Celebrating my birthday in style

I love celebrating birthdays!  Any excuse to get together with friends & family is always a plus in my book.  From wine tastings, to dance parties, dinner dates & live music, this year’s birthday was a huge success…and the most fashionable I might add.

As much I thought I would dread being in my 30’s, I’m loving it!  I have an amazing husband & son, the best friends a girl could ask for & a family that continues to show their love and support.  Check out some of my favorite looks from this year’s week long celebration!

Bringing out my romantic side with bold floral prints while wine tasting in Ohio.  This blouse & the distressed skinnies are from my latest Fix; two of my favorite pieces to date!

What’s a birthday without dinner & drinks with loved ones!  I originally wore this dress while celebrating my wedding in Punta Cana; I was so excited to wear it again for my birthday this year.

Keeping things simple & chic for our winery hop in the Laurel Highlands of PA.  What a great weekend experiencing new wines & listening to live music with my husband and our close friends!

#OOTD – Casual Monday

The rain has finally stopped & the sun is shining bright.  The grass may still be wet but we’re taking advantage of this beautiful Monday!  Forget about the bubble mower, the swing set or even the cozy coupe car…our new obsession is walking up & down the steps.

For me, taking advantage of this beautiful day entails a cotton maxi dress & denim jacket accompanied by a layered necklace from StitchFix & my Lacoste wrap bracelet

#OOTD – 1 Top, 4 Ways

I picked up this casual woven from Francesca’s on a whim at the beginning of the year.  It was an impulse buy I tucked into the closet and truthfully forgot about until today.  Surprise, surprise…I love this top!  I played around with how to wear it & was able to create four outfits with just this one piece.  Check them out below…

Casual meets comfort – I left the woven unbuttoned, layered a boyfriend tank underneath & threw on my straight leg jeans.  I added a slip-on flat & a touch of femininity with my flower burst necklace.

Clean lines – I transitioned this outfit to a more tailored look by knotting the hemline, cuffing the jeans & throwing on a high wedge sandal.

20160430_103529

I then layered the woven overtop this Madewell shift dress.  A nice change from the usual cardigan or blazer.

20160430_121143

Finally, it’s back to the basics.  My go-to finishing pieces are always a boyfriend blazer & my Tory Burch wedges, so why not pair them with the woven & jeans!

Stitch Fix Reveal

One of the best perks of being a stylist for Stitch Fix is styling my own Fixes!  For anyone who’s not familiar, Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that’s tailored to your taste, budget & lifestyle.  It’s perfect for busy women on the go, SAHM’s, women interested in trying new trends…basically any & all women.

Today I am so excited to be sharing one of my favorite Fixes thus far.  Even though I style myself, receiving my box is still like Christmas morning.  A colorful, bold patterned, on-trend Christmas prezie!

As with most of my clients this time of year, I wanted a Fix that was sure to get me in the mood for spring.  I have to say, I didn’t disappoint…

20160420_161231

Skies are Blue – Leslee Shirt Dress.  This A-line silhouette is lightweight & perfect for spring.  The cinched waist is adjustable so this dress can technically be worn as a shift style if wanted.  I cannot wait to wear it while wine tasting this weekend.

20160421_073801

THML – Jaye Cutout Shoulder Top.  What better way to show some skin without baring it all than with a cutout shoulder top.  This is one of my favorite trends; I just can’t get enough of it!  I paired this top with my Just Black Adorra Skinny’s from a previous Fix, but I think this would also look great with a distressed denim or boyfriend jean.

Market & Spruce – Paully Crochet Sleeve Knit Top.  While out shopping this past weekend I noticed lace sleeves everywhere I turned.  I was so excited to send myself this romantic take on a preppy style.  Who would’ve thought mixing these two styles would have such a classy end result.

20160420_155519

MIA – Esie Laser-Cut Flats. Now that Stitch Fix is carrying shoes in all areas, I just had to send myself this fantastic pointed toe flat.  I am crushing on coral & this edgy take on a classic style has my heart melting…in love!

Stay tuned to see how I end up styling each piece throughout the season!  And, if you’re interested in joining the fun go to Stitchfix.com to sign up for your first Fix.

#OOTD – Split Back Blouse

Last night I had the opportunity to attend a banquet for my Mom’s Club.  I know what you’re thinking…Mom’s Club?  But, joining this group was one of the best decisions I made after having my son.  Not only do we have play dates, share advice & go on field trips, but we also have fun “mom only” get togethers.  Our banquet last night consisted of dinner & drinks at a local Italian restaurant.  The spread was fantastic, the wine was overpoured & the conversation was hilarious; I love these women!

I hate to say this out loud in fear of jinxing myself, but I think spring has finally sprung in Pittsburgh!  The sun was shining a warm 70 degrees yesterday making it the perfect day to wear my new split-back blouse.  I was waiting for warm weather to showcase this style since layering a jacket on top would defeat the purpose of the split-back.

20160414_182328

I decided to pair this bold blouse with a dark wash flare denim and my Tory accessories.  I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I love mixing casual or trendy styles with classic pieces such as my Tory Burch wedges & handbag.  I added a bold lipstick that matched the pink hue of the blouse making this outfit that much more playful!

New Spring Staple – Denim Jacket

I have been on the hunt for the perfect denim jacket for quite some time.  The jackets I find are either too long, too tight in the shoulders or just not what I’m looking for.  The other day after dinner my husband & I decided to run into Old Navy to pick up some sweatpants for our little nugget.  He’s going through yet another growth spurt and is constantly making messes; Old Navy is the perfect place to pick up pants he’ll likely only wear a few times.

While perusing the aisles, what did I find?  Non-other than the perfect denim jacket!  Who would’ve thought?!  This jacket was the right shade, the right fit and on sale for under $30.  Win-win-win!

20160405_154549

Yesterday I incorporated the jacket into my wardrobe by pairing it with a basic black legging and a graphic tee, which I also picked up at Old Navy for $10.  I love mixing casual pieces with chic essentials such as my Tory Burch Reva Ballet Flats and Chloe + Isabel Statement Necklace.

The weather in Pittsburgh has been anything but dress-appropriate lately.  I cannot wait for the sun to make an appearance so I can layer this jacket over a maxi dress or jumpsuit!
