Resale Shop Experience

If you’ve been reading my posts lately you know how much I love a good deal.  From Marshalls, to TJ Maxx and Target…I always seem to find something fantastic I can add to my wardrobe.  Not only are their prices super affordable but these stores make it easy to bring a very strong-willed toddler along for the ride 🙂

The other day, thanks to my Mother in Law, I was able to do some shopping sans the little man and came across a local resale shop called Style Encore.  I had my reservations since the only resale shop I’ve been to is Plato’s Closet which is geared towards a younger audience.  I have to say, I was impressed!  Not only were the employees friendly and helpful but the store was organized and brightly lit.

I tried on a few things and ended up falling in love with a top by Bar III for only $14 which I believe is carried at Macy’s.  I wore it for a recent date night with my dark wash skinnies from Marshalls, black pumps from Forever 21 and burgundy satchel from Stitch Fix.

#OOTD Fall Layers

It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Pittsburgh & I couldn’t be more excited!  This is by far my favorite season; the crisp autumn mornings, the holidays & family gatherings and of course, an excuse to drink hot rum apple cider!

Yesterday my husband & I decided to do a spontaneous family date night.  Another favorite of mine 🙂 Dinner & drinks, a little shopping, topped off with game night with our little man.  If you haven’t played Pop the Pig yet, you’re missing out.

It was one of those in-between evenings where the weather isn’t quite cold but it’s not hot either.  A ‘bring a layer’ kind of night.  I decided to wear my new Liverpool Bootcut Jeans from my recent Fix along with this lightweight elbow patch knit I picked up from Marshalls & my go-to boyfriend blazer from H&M.  The perfect toddler-approved date night look!

#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 – Sleeveless Cardigan

Thanks to StitchFix I have found my new favorite fall layering piece!  This gray, sleeveless cardigan by RD Style is not only comfortable & stylish but extremely versatile & easy to wash.  So far I have paired it with three different looks this season and I can’t wait to keep experimenting with it

I’m also excited to share this sleeveless cardigan I picked up from a local fashion truck Mack & Mario.  The owner Lori has such an eye for seasonal trends & this reversible cardigan is no exception!  It’s so cozy & chic and will be the perfect layering piece throughout fall & winter.

#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!

Nothing beats chic leggings with a slip-on sneaker & lightweight layering pieces.  Comfort & style is a win-win in my book!

Spring Favorites

Today I am sharing some of my favorite outfits I’ve put together this spring.  From mixing patterns, to Stitch Fix favorites, this season has been full of fun outfits I cannot wait to repeat throughout the summer!

Mixing Patterns

Mixing patterns is easy when you don’t put too much thought into it.  The key is to mix prints of varying scales i.e. large florals & small polka dots, or in my case thin stripes & thick diamonds.  I like to stay within the same color family, but you can always combine two different prints that share a single color.

Unexpected pieces

The high finally hit 90 degrees the other day so the thought of wearing anything less than a dress was intolerable.  I didn’t have a lightweight maxi dress on hand so I turned this maxi skirt into a dress and I’m obsessed with the result!

Stitch Fix Favorites

I’ve received so many great pieces from Stitch Fix lately; styling myself has its perks!  For an indoor work event this week, I decided to keep things simple & chic with a little bohemian flair.  This was easy to do thanks to my new Renee C Tank & Kut from the Kloth Faux Leather Jacket.  #StitchFixLife
