Mom Style Inspiration: Wearing Lately

As a pseudo-style blogger, i find my wardrobe is kind of boring. I don’t really consider myself super stylish, more classic and comfortable. I keep thinking about a capsule wardrobe and maybe for spring I’ll do one – I know the same colors dominate my wardrobe (olives, navy, blush, black and white), I really rotate through 3 or 4 pairs of pants regularly, and the same few tops, I just need to spruce up the combinations instead of the same thing..over and over and over again.

Lo, here are a few of the outfits that I’ve been rotating through over and over and over again. Over the past few weeks!

This is an oldie but such a goodie. The sweatshirt (out of stock now) is so comfortable and the perfect business casual piece to dress up or down on days when you just don’t want to think or worry about what you’re wearing.

This one with my favorite Lululemon leggings is a weekend staple. Saturdays have become really hectic for us with E having OT, my MRTT group runs so I really just want something that’s easy to throw on and comfortable in most cases. Obviously, this one doesn’t work in super cold weather but it’s done the trick the past few Saturdays 🙂

We’ve seen this outfit before – it was what I wore to our family Photos back in November but it’s such a comfortable and classic casual Friday outfit that I had to include it. Especially as it gets warmer and we don’t need jackets, still appropriate for those 40 degree days where you’re not quite ready to go short sleeve.

Because it wouldn’t be an outfit post without my favorite Tippi sweater from J.Crew – a staple in my winter wardrobe for both work and play (as seen above).

Loving Lately: Target Finds

Guys, Target seriously has my number right now. 

Ever since the A New Day line hit last fall, they’ve kind of been killing it on all fronts. Recently, they launched the Universal Threads line – which is super swoon-worthy and has me all kinds of lusting for spring weather.

The shoes! The tanks! The bags. I want them all. Seriously. But instead of spending money that I quite frankly, don’t really have right now, I’ll just blog about all the things.


Here are 9 Target finds that you need to RUN for…right now. Like seriously, I’m super jazzed to add some of these pieces to my spring wardrobe because they are versatile, budget friendly and a little trendy (I’m loving the tie front trend lately!).

What are you loving lately? Anything from Target you’re running for right now??


Currently Craving: All Pink Everything

Happy Monday friends!

Once upon a time, my blog was titled “Life in Pink” – pink was a long favorite color of mine – less so now, but still a welcome freshness and feminine accent. So i thought it would be fun to find all the cute pink things on my wishlist (mostly workout gear ah-hem) think pink

[Top L-R: Leggings | mug | top | cape | bow mules | Perfume | Sneakers | Open Back Tank | Off the Shoulder sweater | Nail polish | Peplum t-shirt ]

Blushes and mauves are my favorites right now – long since I moved away from bright fuschia pink, blush became a staple of mine in my wardrobe. The workout tops from Gap, Athleta respectively are super feminine, the mauve leggings from Lulu are STUNNING (and their luxtreme fabric is my FAVORITE for workouts).

Pink on your feet is super fun too when you need a touch of brightness – one of my Fit4Mom coaches has these sneaks that I’ve been swooning over for a few weeks (well since I realized I needed new sneakers – I’ll probably get these in navy though since they fit with my workout wardrobe better ;). These mules are pretty for the office with a nice feminine touch as well. Really you can never turn down a pair of mules with a bow…in any color.

Finally, I’m not one for bright nail colors, you’ll often find me with nude or lavender/greyish on my nails – when they’re actually painted that is – but this light pink from Essie “Eternal Optimist” is super pretty and non-offensive for those who can’t stand bright or super dark colors.

Are you thinking pink? 


OOTD: Bell Sleeves & the Winter Blues

I haven’t done an outfit post lately but man, winter is tough y’all! Like – 7:15a the sun comes up and is when I try to leave my house at (note: try). Until the past couple of weeks, it would be dark when I got up and left, and dark when I left the office. Winter is the pits yo.

But slowly, over the past few weeks, the sun’s been out by the time I leave between 4:30 and 5 pm. The hints of orange and blue over the river peek in through the bathroom windows as I’m getting ready, and signs that spring is a mere 54 days away makes my heart dance with joy.

I haven’t done much shopping but when this top came back in stock, I had to grab it – on clearance and 50% off?! Heck yeah!

Kind of boring with the black pants but what can I say, I’m a little basic when it comes to my work wardrobe.  The top itself is a little outside my comfort zone – I wanted the plaid one initially because [insert heart eye emoji here] but really, I sometimes/often associate plaid with Christmas and we’re past that. So red it was! The bell sleeves are cute without being over the top, and the color is a nice pop. Plus it’ll be really pretty in the fall when it’s too warm for a jacket but not warm enough for short sleeves.

Review: ArmourBox by Under Armour

A few weeks ago, a girl in my MRTT group posted a picture of her ArmourBox on Facebook. Immediately, I wanted to try it out. I’ve had mixed experiences with subscription boxes – I’m looking at you StitchFix, but given my love of Athleisure wear and Under Armour running gear… I figured it’d be worth a try.

There’s no risk, no styling fee, you pay for what you keep and if you keep the whole box (I had six items) you get 20% off everything. You can also exchange items for different sizes AND colors. Not to compare to Stitch Fix really, but every time I’ve tried to exchange SF pieces, they’re always sold out – I was delighted that I had options with Under Armour and the prices? Weren’t really that terrible.

Be sure to check out the unboxing video on my Facebook page that Adam and I did. We shared our first impressions of our boxes and contemplated on what we’d keep.

under armour armourbox

{tank | 1/2 zip | Jog bra | sneakers | Leggings | Socks }

Here are my thoughts about what was in my box…

under armour running gear

Women’s Cold Gear 1/2 Zip $65

Ehhhh the style was fine. I have one (Albeit a little thinner) from Old Navy that does the trick as a top layer in cold weather that was about a third of the price. In my box it was black, but I could have traded for burgundy, navy or grey if I had wanted. I just didn’t love the flashy design under the arms.

Women’s Accela-bolt leggings – $45

The fit was good on these and they felt really good.  But the neon… I wasn’t feeling the neon. They did have a black and white version but were out of my size. Wamp wamp wamp.

UA Tech Victory Tank – $20

The price was certainly right with this one, but as you can see it was a bit sheer (yes, I could have exchanged the color) but it just… felt thin. I don’t really like my tanks fitted, in fact I’ve gotten rid of most of the tanks that I had that were fitted – I have a few for when I bike in the summertime, but generally I wear looser tanks like these from Old Navy which are my current favorites or these from Under Armour.

Armour Eclipse High – Zip Sports Bra – $60

It fit just right. But super high impact bras terrify me. The front zip was fine, but I dunno. I’m super fickle about jog bras. This just wasn’t right for me.

Under armour socks sneakers

SpeedForm Slingshot Sneakers – $120

I wanted to love these sneakers but I like a bit more cushioning. They had a low heel-toe drop, which I don’t mind but they felt narrow for a running shoe, and $120 is a bit out of my budge at the moment. The tongue on the sneaker was a little odd and the shoe just felt like it didn’t have the type of stretch that I generally like in my sneakers.

UA Big Logo no show socks 6-pack – $20

If I needed socks, I would have grabbed these. Buuutt I don’t. That being said, I DEFINITELY recommend UA socks if you’re in the market for a solid athletic sock. $20 for a six-pack of high quality running/workout socks is not a bad deal.

Once you send it back (you have a week to try everything out), you have the opportunity to give your stylist feedback on what you loved and didn’t. I mentioned I wanted to see more variety – running isn’t the only sport i do and I really love pieces that are multi-functional, less fitted. I don’t need sneakers or socks, so really, i would have loved a pair of gym/studio leggings/top and a running top/bottom set. But, thats feedback i gave.

Currently Craving: Fitness Gear

This week I started round 3 (and a half since the mini session over the holidays) of Body Back with my Fit4Mom Severn gang. So of course, I’m looking to add more workout gear into my closet – not that I need ANY MORE workout tank tops or leggings. But well, my usual digs are getting tired. 

I don’t REALLY have the budget for this gear, BUT it is ALWAYS fun to lust over new workout digs right? So instead of hitting the purchase button, I’ll share with all y’all 😉 Here’s what fitness gear I’m currently craving….

Yoga Mat – Manduka is one of the gold standards of yoga mats – even though I’m not practicing as much, my yoga mat is roughly 7 years old and could certainly use an upgrade this year.

Criss Cross Sweatshirt – I have this in white and it’s by far one of my favorite weekend lounging pieces and a great to-fro piece. Super soft, super comfy.

Kate Spade Tank – KS announced their new athleisure line this week – and it is as pretty, girly and all the things a fitness line should be for the girliest of girly girls. Seriously, if you love scalloped edges and fun colors (and/or black and white) You’ll love this line. While I doubt I’ll be able to justify $78 for a workout tank, it’s still nice to crave it right? 😉

Old Navy Tulip Hem Tank – Speaking of tank tops – i have three of these. They’re super comfortable, light weight and great for my HIIT workouts. If you’re looking for cute workout tanks fit for any budget, check out the old navy ones – they hold up super well!

New Balance for J. Crew leggings – So I pretty much, with the exception of winter running because…cold, only work out in crops. Why? At a petite 5’1″ most crops are practically leggings on me anyhow. These JCrew leggings bring out the scalloped hems at the cropped length – perfect for any petite gal. Also fun fact: The New Balance x J.Crew line at J. Crew factory is currently BOGO with code FREEGEAR.

Amazon Basics Hand Weights – The only weights I have at home are measly 5 pounders. I currently work out with 15’s mostly. Time for an upgrade (a la Beyonce right?!) and these are a great price!

New Balance Sneakers – I need to upgrade my Nike’s and though these are running sneakers, I think they’d do nicely for HIIT training. I mean, not that I would ever buy sneakers for how they look (Fun fact: I did this for marathon #1 when I wanted to wear Nike’s that had the Nike pod thing in them. Bad idea.)


What are YOU currently craving?

What to Wear: Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

My family has never been a “formal” dress kind of family for any holiday. I personally err on the side of classic and comfortable when it comes to my holiday attire. This, to me, means ponte pants, nice sweater, boots or heels, or jeans, a nice top and flats.

I dress, in the words of a few, dressy casual.

This year, like the past couple of years (excepting the year my Nana passed), we’ll be traveling up to New Jersey to spend with my Brother-in-law’s in-laws (his wife’s parents – who are absolutely lovely and put up an amazing Thanksgiving spread).

So even though most days off from work, you’ll find me in leggings, boots and comfy sweaters, for family affairs, I generally step it up just a notch or two without going full-on “business casual”

So here are four comfy, and slightly dressed up casual outfits that’ll be in my suitcase for the holidays.

Outfit 1 – Butter top and Ponte Pants  

{ Top: Nordstrom | Pants: Loft | Shoes: Old Navy, similar | necklace: Nordstrom }

I saw this top on another blog and it is one of my favorite purchases this fall. It’s super comfy, cozy and with the right shoes – either boots, booties or even flats/mules- it’s perfectly dressy casual for a nice Thanksgiving feast, but can also be dressed down if needed.

Outfit 2 – Ponte Pants and Knotted sweater 

{Sweater: Nordstrom | Pants: Loft | necklace: J.Crew | Shoes: J.Crew}

Another comfortable find is the Gibson knotted fleece pullover which I picked up early this fall. I have it in Olive and Heathered grey – both would work with either knee-high boots or nice flats (as shown) or heeled booties.


Outfit 3 – Ruffled Hem Sweatshirt with Jeans

{Sweatshirt: Nordstrom, similar | Jeans: Old Navy | boots: Macy’s, similar | Necklace: J.Crew, similar}

If you’re apt to wear jeans,  a fun, cozy top, and nice flats. Personally, Jeans are uncomfortable for me after a large meal (hi Food Baby hahaha) so I err on the side of Leggings or ponte pants. Just me?

Outfit 4 – Jeans with Tippi sweater

{sweater: J.Crew | Jeans: Old Navy  | boots: Macy’s, similar | Necklace: J.Crew}

This is one of my favorite outfits for fall, I have the Tippi sweater in four colors – it’s a solid piece and a staple in my winter wardrobe because it’s so versatile for work and play. (Today the Tippi – and everything else at – is 40% off with code THANKU!!)

I’m not a dress kind of gal for Thanksgiving – mostly because I grew up in VT and if it wasn’t snowing, it was usually in the 30’s and hardly dress weather. On top of that, I still haven’t figured out how to wear tights with dresses so it doesn’t look like I’m 12. That being said, I love this swing dress, and this pretty ruffle shoulder sweater dress if you’re looking for something a step up that’s comfortable and casual.

What’s your holiday wardrobe go to??

What I wore: Casual Friday in All Navy

I’ve never met a mono-color outfit I didn’t like. Granted, I haven’t been brave enough to try the white on white outfit and really the only other ones I’ve tried have been all navy or all black. This casual Friday all navy outfit with accents in leopard print shoes and the striped pleats didn’t disappoint either. All navy ftw! 

I picked up this adorable french terry top during the big Nordstrom Anniversary sale in August and lo, it’s been too flipping warm to wear it. But it is quite perfectly, a fantastic casual Friday outfit or good for kicking around on the weekends when you want to look…slightly more put together than just leggings (as most of my weekends are spent). 

The top itself, I was worried about because the cut to the pleats is a little funky and I think it’s probably not the MOST flattering of tops but man, is it comfy as all heck. The pleats are kind of a pain – unlike most of my other peplum/pleated tops that are more of a crepe type material, these are more of a stiff cotton so they get wrinkled super easily and don’t like to lay flat and look pretty like they should. Silly pleats.

What I Wore: Twist Front Sweater

So when I buy something, I tend to buy it in multiple colors. I have no fewer than FOUR of my favorite JCrew Factory Daybreak dresses (three get worn consistently, one shrunk terribly and one I bought second hand off poshmark…so five). The same was true when I saw this beautiful twist front sweater on Pinterest. I fell in serious love with this sweater and it’s been a fantastic addition to my closet for fall…in two different colors.

[Sweater | Pants | Shoes | Necklace ]

The sweater itself is available in multiple colors and is soft and almost fleece-y like. It runs big so I did size down, and it comes in petite sizes as well.  I picked up the dark grey and Olive Green – both fit into my wardrobe seamlessly.

There are so many fun ways to wear this sweater for fall – with jeans and boots, with leggings and casual sneakers while running errands on a weekend, or dressed up for work like I did with nice pants (in my case these are my favorite Ponte pants) and a pair of flats.

Now that there’s finally fall-like weather here, well, you might see this one again if you’re following me on instagram.

August/September Stitch Fix Reveal

A couple weeks ago (this is belated but whatever), I got my August/September Stitch Fix box in the mail. I wasn’t quite sure what to ask for – I’ve kind of been loving the cold shoulder trend and wanted to be a little, dare I say, adventurous in what I asked for?

Alas, this fix? Did not pass go. This is the second or third 0/5 I’ve gotten. I usually get a 1/5 (even if I love most things, usually if I love the style but the fit is off, I’ll consider it a win) so a 0/5 is a BFD for me. There were a couple of pieces that I did LIKE but already had something too similar in my closet for me to spend the money on them. So i guess not a TOTAL loss but….I was underwhelmed, to say the least.

I typically ask for business casual wear, pieces that can translate for office or weekend. This? Not quite it.

Kaileigh Rosella Cold Shoulder top $46

stitch fix cold shoulder top

I did NOT love this. This was a total miss. Tie sleeves don’t do anything for me, nor are they… a big win for the office in my book.

Verdict: Return

August Mist Shyann Cold Shoulder Top –  $46

This was an even bigger miss. The roll tab sleeves were awkward, the look that they styled it with was just… terrible (window pane top with window pane pants?! Whuuutt???). I just… nope.

Verdict: Return.

TK Angiana Woven Back Sleeveless Pullover – $58

Okay, so I really liked this one. I did. BUT, the fit wasn’t quite right and it was really pricey for what it was and I have at LEAST one near-identical top so I couldn’t justify it. Womp womp. So close.

Verdict: Return

Colette Chavez Pop Color Cuff Knit Top – $48

Ufff. I wanted to love this. I did. The pink was super cute and a nice pop to an otherwise basic top. Buuutttt, I’m not going to pay nearly $50 for a top that looks like one I already have that I paid $15 for from Target that’s going on it’s 2nd or 3rd season (unusual for Target basics!).

Verdict: Return 

MIA Casey Leather Peep Toe Booties – $99

Okay, so I did ask for a peep-toe bootie. These were REALLY cute. BUT. I didn’t LOVE them which for $100? It better be real shoe love. Also, these were more brown, I was looking for cognac/tan or black instead of a dark brown. M’eh.

Verdict: Return (wamp wamp)

So there you have it. 0/5.

I do love getting Stitch Fix boxes. I do. I think I need to check out my Pinterest boards, and really think about what I want to ask for. If you’re interested in trying out Stitch Fix, I do recommend trying it once. At the very least, I love getting the style cards and I always get new ideas on how to style pieces in my wardrobe in ways I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.
