Transitional Booties

I’m sure many of you are feeling like me and are so tired of winter! Between the cold, snow, and the occasional frozen roads in Pittsburgh, I’m ready for spring!

I found some really cute transitional booties that would be great to wear now and into the spring. I’m really a fan of suede booties (if there isn’t snow all over the ground) and booties with cute details.

Click here for some really cute options at all price points! I even found pre-owned options that are almost 75% off the original price!😊

In the Valentine’s Day Mood

Is anyone else really in the Valentine’s Day mood this week?? This past weekend, we made Kennedy’s Valentine’s Day box for school (if you saw our IG stories, you saw how obnoxiously amazing it is😁), put together all of her candy and bags, and made some final plans for our little family getaway this week!

I figured what better way to express my excitement, than wear my heart on my sleeve (literally)! I found the cutest “Lost in Love” sweatshirt on sale for only $13.99! I also found some other cute tops if you’re feeling festive this week!

Find my sweatshirt here! It’s only $13.99!

How cute is this blouse?! The hearts are so subtle, and this would be such a cute work to date night top. Find it here.

If you’re lucky enough to be in warmer temps this week, this cute t-shirt would be perfect for you! Find it here.

Not a fan of the typical red and pink for Valentine’s Day? Then this vintage sweatshirt is for you! Find it here.

If you are REALLY in the Valentine’s Day spirit, then this blouse is for you! Find it here!

Perfect White Denim

Interesting fact to start the week: I have never been a fan of white denim. As a woman who has never had skinny legs or a small butt, white jeans just weren’t flattering on me. I either thought they made me look bigger than I was, or the material showed every imperfection.

Enter: Topshop White Denim!

I decided to order these Topshop Moto Jamie Jeans a few weeks ago before our trip to Fort Lauderdale last week. I wanted white denim to go with this pink top from Revolve and my Schutz heels. My plans for the outfit changed after I realized heels with 3 kids under 6 wasn’t going to happen lol! But regardless, these are the most flattering white jeans ever! The high waist is SO good, and the material is thick and flattering, with the right amount of stretch. It’s the best $70 I’ve spent in a while!

Schutz Obsessed

This blog post is solely dedicated to one of my favorite shoe brands: Schutz!! Not only are there shoes well made, but they look more expensive than they actually are. They tend to run from about $170 and up, but they frequently have sales, so you’re sure to score a pair for under $100.

CI have a few styles of pumps, flats, high heel sandals and even flat sandals. All of them are comfortable, and in my opinion, well worth the price tag! Check out some great options by Schutz below!

I bought these last summer and wore them more than I would like to admit! They went with everything! Check them out here.

I love the detail on this classic pump. These can be found here.

I love this style, because they can easily be dressed up or down! These can be found here.

And they look so similar to these Manolo Blahnik’s!

And if you’re looking for a pop of color, they also come in beige and neon yellow!

Find them here.

DITA Eyewear

As someone who needs to wear glasses every day, the quality and style of my frames are important to me. When I was younger, I tended to get the flashy designer frames because I thought they were “trendy” but really they were poorly made and didn’t last long.

My best friend, who also happens to be my eye doctor, introduced me to DITA Eyewear 3 years ago, and I haven’t looked back since!! All of their frames, both optical and sunglasses, are beautifully made, and the designs are like no other. DITA is definitely considered luxury eyewear, but the branding is discreet, which is perfect for a corporate environment. You KNOW they are high-end, luxury glasses, without the logo being plastered on the sides!

Check out some beautiful frames below!

You can find my glasses here: DITA VIDA

I’ve been eyeing these rose gold and silver frames forever! Dr. LP…I think these might be my next purchase😁 Find them here: DITA ARISE

I love the shape of this frame, and the tortoise pattern is subtle and classy! Find them here: DITA LACQUER

Check out other styles, optical and sun, for men and women on DITA.com!

Tahari Wrap Coats

Nothing completes your work wardrobe better than a beautiful coat! Investing in your work wardrobe, including a beautiful coat, is always a good idea.

I love wool wrap coats, because they not only keep you warm, but they are so flattering! Tahari, T Tahari, and Tahari ASL make some of my favorite wrap coats, and the below options are currently all on sale!

This one is on sale for under $150 and comes in 3 colors! Ellie Double Face Wool Blend Wrap Coat: Here

This one is on sale for under $200 and comes in 5 colors! T Tahari Wool Blend Belted Wrap Coat: Here

I love the oversized shawl on this one! It comes in 4 colors, and all of them are on sale for under $170! T Tahari Marla Oversized Shawl Collar Coat: Here

Blazers with Feminine Details

With a corporate environment, comes a closet that is filled with business attire. Blazers are an essential part of my wardrobe, but when I was just starting my career, I was under the impression that I had to wear the “typical” suit or blazer every day. That meant that the suit had to be either all black, blue or grey and, for lack of better terms, had to be simple and boring.

Looking back, I had it all wrong. I wasn’t dressing like myself, so ultimately I didn’t feel as confident as I could have felt. Now don’t get me wrong, there are days when I need to wear the “simple and boring” suit or blazer, but now they are more tailored than they were in my early 20s, so they are much more me! On the days when I can be a little more creative with my wardrobe, I love to wear blazers with feminine details.

Suit with Bow: This suit was from RueLala.com, and isn’t available now. But there are similar suits here.

A suit with embellishments, a certain cut, a great color or plaid pattern always catch my eye. The feminine details make these blazers great for work, but are also perfect transitional pieces for after work, or even on the weekend.

Check out some beautiful blazers with feminine details below!

Waist Emphasis Blazer: Here

This blazer just launched last week, and I immediately bought it. I can’t wait for it to arrive!

Peplum Blazer: Here

Red and peplum…it doesn’t get any better! If you’re not feeling the red, it comes in black for a more subtle statement. It’s also currently 30% off!

Belted Blazer: Here

I love the belt detail! I frequently throw a narrow black belt on many of my blazers to accentuate my waist. I love how this one is the same fabric as the blazer.

Tweed Blazer: Here

The tweed fabric and enlarged gold button detail on this blazer make it anything but boring!

Let us know if you have any go-to brands for blazers. I’d love to try out some new brands!
