Happy Monday everyone! We had a super fun family weekend which was really nice but HOT!   I really wanted to share this blazer I found from Nordstrom a few years ago but has stood the test of time and has been really useful in so many different occasions.

I brought this to France for a wedding and dressed it up with heels and an all black underneath similar to this look shown above.  I love how simple and chic the lines are which work really well for both business and out of office occasions.

Accessories are my favorite things and I am still loving this Henri Bendel bag which is now a few seasons old.  The size and shape are actually perfect to throw a laptop and papers in and still look super nice at the same time.  My shoes are still available in a million different fabrics and colors, super comfortable and pull a simple outfit together.

Orange is the new black…

Happy Thursday guys!! Can we please talk about how it’s already August!  That means the end of summer and starting to prep for the school year ahead.  I can’t believe I am going to have a little first grader on my hands, she is super excited and ready for the new year!

So Kelsey and I took a little trip to Malvern and she found the worlds cutest bakery that I probably have ever been in!  It was like Instagram made it just for taking pictures in… plus the pastries were absolutely amazing.  We worked in the bakery for a little then took the opportunity to shoot some of my favorite work looks that I wear all of the time when I need to look more polished.

I love how this look came together with a few super fun and classic pieces from Kelsey’s closet.  She is so good at curating the perfect pieces that are fashionable, chic, and timeless.  I am super excited to share them paired with my very basic and classic pieces that I mix and match all year round!

Ok so the shoes are amazing and super comfortable, If you don’t work in a very conservative office I think that they offer the perfect pop of color to any basic outfit.  I love how they tie around the ankle and are just a really fun twist on a classic pump.

Next up we have my all-time favorite MUST HAVE work pants that are from the Gap Factory.  For some reason they are just perfect in my opinion for a shorter girl who needs a little stretch in a pant without looking like you are wearing leggings.  I literally wear these all the time I have like three pairs!

I am also obsessed with these little sweater shells from J.Crew, they actually are the perfect layering pieces because they are not very thick, but also look professional enough to wear alone in the warmer weather.

Finishing off the look how can you not miss the fab bag and vintage Gucci scarf also compliments of Kel’s closet!  This bag is so good you guys keep an eye out for a video where I will be reviewing it on my YT Channel!

Thank you for reading I hope that you enjoyed this outfit as much as I did!

I am so excited to share this amazing property listed by Kathy Landis (Kelly Real Estate Inc.) located in Barto, PA! What I love the most about this property is the amazing landscaping and yard space. This beautiful Rotelle home is ready for your personal style and family memories! If you are interested in checking out this stunning home please contact me for more information.
Big News!
I am so excited to officially launch my new website and start the next chapter of my Real Estate career.  I will be working for Kelly Real Estate Inc, and couldn’t be more excited!  If you have followed my social media journey on YouTube you may know that as a former Military spouse my family and I have moved across the country more than a handful of times while my husband Eric was on Active duty for over 8 years! It was such an incredible experience and I learned so much about the moving, buying, and selling process as a consumer. With my marketing background and passion for design I knew that Real Estate was my dream career.
 
Now that we are thankfully settled back home in PA I have taken the opportunity to become a licensed PA Real Estate Agent from Temple University! I am so excited for this next chapter in my career and really be able to help my clients find their perfect home.
 
I know how important buying and selling a home is and I am committed to creating a smooth and streamlined process that is actually enjoyable! Buying and selling a home in my opinion should be such a magical time in a person’s life instead of filled with stress. From moving so much I know how important it is for an Agent to be compassionate, competent, and resourceful.
 
I really look forward to having a positive impact on my clients lives during such an exciting and monumental part of their lives!
 
Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to check out my new website and Real Estate IG…  Don’t worry I will still be sharing all of my favorite beauty and lifestyle goodies on this blog and of course my YouTube channel
Cheers to the next chapter!

Happy Halloween…

My absolute favorite time of the year basically starts today!  Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays ever since I was a little kid!  One of my favorite memories growing up was a costume party we had and my dad wore a real carved pumpkin on his head the entire time, it was hilarious and everyone loved it!

Now that have a little one of my own who loves it just as much as I do it is so much fun to see her so excited!  Our whole family loves to dress up and she gets such a kick out of it!  Here are some of my favorite moments from the past weekend ❤

Clearly I love a theme while decorating, the great part is that most of these banners and extras can be saved year to year by simple putting them into a ziplock back and they look great and save you a ton of money from repurchasing everything all over again!

Finally Fall…

Hey everyone! So Fall has officially decided to make its way to our doorstep and we are starting to feel some more chilly weather!  I wanted to share a few pictures of what we have been up to lately as well as link a recent outfit of the day video!

We finally made it to the pumpkin patch which was so fun and a great family outing, we had the best ice-cream and found a bunch of super cute pumpkins for our front door area.  This year we don’t have a large front porch like we did at our last house, but I am really happy with how it turned out!  For a small area I was actually able to squeeze a ton of cute fall decorations in!

  I think that pumpkins and mums are so beautiful and they can transition all the way until Thanksgiving which is even better!  I hope you and your families are all enjoying the fall weather and getting to experience some fun activities as well!

Halloween Prep…

Hey guys! So fall is definitely in full swing around here!  We have had the busiest few weeks, but we are excited for Halloween and I wanted to share this super easy DIY wreath.  We picked up all of the supplies needed at our local Hobby Lobby for around $30.00 which is not bad compared to pre-made wreaths.  I usually always make my own so that I can customize it exactly the way I want it to look.  I also like making my own because I can make them a little bit larger for the front door.  I will also be adding a string of battery operated lights as soon as they get delivered.
