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.

My Favorite Summer Looks

As the days get shorter & the weather (slowly) starts to cool I wanted to share some of my favorite summer looks.  Each of these outfits came from…you guessed it, Marshalls!  I am so lucky to have two stores within close proximity to our house, both that are fully stocked with on-trend styles at great prices!

This off-the-shoulder romper was the perfect go-to style for celebrating the 4th of July!  All I needed to complete this look was my favorite wedges & a glass of sangria 😉

Another day, another blue off the shoulder outfit & a glass of red.  My brother & I were registered to run a 5K in June but the weather wasn’t in our favor so we opted for dinner & drinks instead.  This was also the perfect opportunity to wear this lightweight ruffled blouse & a top knot!

Last but not least is this cold shoulder floral blouse that I’ve managed to wear several times throughout the summer.  First, to my son’s birthday party with a pair of olive chino shorts, below for girls night out with my favorite dark wash skinnies & lastly with a light wash distressed boyfriend jean & canvas flats.

Maxxinista Life

I have recently become a full blown Maxxinista and am loving every penny saving moment! By definition, a Maxxinista is “one who finds unique and original designer items at discount prices” at the discount department store TJ Maxx.  The fact that I found an actual definition of this online is amazing!

I always seem to have such good luck shopping at TJ Maxx & Marshalls, not to mention Homegoods too!  It’s always a quick & easy shopping experience which makes dragging my toddler along with me not a complete nightmare.  Anyways, I am excited to share some of my most recent finds & how I styled them

Lemon & pineapple prints are everywhere this season, so when I found this Off The Shoulder Top for only $12.99 at TJ Maxx, I just had to get it!  I kept things casual by pairing it my high-rise distressed skinnies, cuffed at the ankle, strappy wedges & statement chandelier earrings.

Being that I’m only 5’0″ tall I rarely wear skirts, but with midi skirts being on-trend this year I just had to try one for myself.  I picked up this yellow perforated skirt & crochet cap sleeved knit from TJ Maxx for under $25.  Since the top was a little long I decided to knot the hem to one side & add a fun pop of contrasting color with this blue floral necklace.

As you can see, I saved the best for last!  I found this floral tie waist jumpsuit at Marshalls for under $20 (I can’t remember the exact price).  But, what a steal!  I paired this jumpsuit with my Tory Burch wedges and Chloe+Isabel statement necklace for a good friend’s wedding rehearsal.

#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.

20161018_112510

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.

Athleisure at its best

Whether I’m running a few quick errands, going to a play date at the park or meeting a friend for an impromptu lunch, this athleisure trend is keeping me comfortable & stylish…

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

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!

Fashion on wheels

Last night I hosted yet another fun Ladies Night Out!  Our night was full of drinking vino, eating yummy finger foods & shopping the latest trends thanks to the Mack & Mario fashion truck.  Mack & Mario is a store on wheels, think food truck but for all things fabulous.

20160622_182445

This concept of free-range fashion is a game changer!  The owner Lori made our event a huge hit with her outgoing personality, artisan jewelry and on-trend apparel.

20160622_202928

My girlfriends & I had a blast shopping inside the truck!  There was no pressure from pushy sales associates, just friendly advice from the owner on how to coordinate pieces.  The apparel was somewhat limited with only one or two sizes available in each style, making them unique & one of a kind.

Some of  my favorite pieces included a white tulle skirt a la Carrie Bradshaw, an off-the-shoulder tunic with lace/fringe detailing and lightweight brass bracelets with individual state charms.

If you’re in the Pittsburgh area keep your eye out for the Mack & Mario truck or contact Lori by visiting her website http://www.mackandmario.com/

Stay tuned to see how I style the pieces I picked up last night!

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

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!

Spring (closet) Cleaning

The windows are open, the daffodils are in bloom and the sun is shining…it must be spring!  That also means it’s time for some spring (closet) cleaning.  Thanks to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse the nugget was entertained long enough for me to transition my closet from winter to spring.  While doing so I came across some pieces I forgot I had; it was like going on a shopping spree in my own closet!  I can’t wait to start wearing chambray shirts, white jeans & peep toe shoes every day.

…………………………………………………………………

Last year we started a tradition of hosting Easter dinner at our house.  With that being said, I wanted a casual-chic ensemble that would make entertaining & cooking a breeze.  Instead of running out to buy a new outfit for this weekend, I decided to pull together some styles that I already owned.

A classic shirt dress is a great way to stay casual & cool while entertaining.  I picked this one up during my many years of working for Lacoste.  It’s a staple piece that I will continue to pull out each spring.  Since Lacoste embodies a classic, timeless style I thought it was best to accessorize with my Tory Burch studs & wedge heels.

Since we don’t go to mass on Easter Sunday & we’re just having family over, I wanted a casual go-to outfit in case I opted out of the dress.  What better way to stay casual than with a pair of light wash boyfriend jeans.  To play on this relaxed look, I paired the jeans with my StitchFix Market & Spruce Hi-Lo Tee and a boho-inspired sheer cardigan.  I added a blue beaded necklace & my Tory Burch wedges to help elongate my legs.

How will you be celebrating Easter?  I’d love to hear what look you’re going for this weekend!
