Happy Friday, friends! We woke up to a winter white wonderland after yesterday’s snow storm. It’s the first snow of the season and Ava was quite excited for it, me not as much lol. The new fallen snow has me dreaming of the cheerful holidays ahead and all of the happiness and joy that comes along with them. The holiday season is the perfect time of the year to add a little something special to your wardrobe, this bow dress included! It exudes the perfect amount of classic elegance and charm with the darling bow detail in the back. I can’t help but to think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s when wearing this. She was the inspiration of this effortlessly chic holiday look.

Good morning, friends! ‘Tis the season to add a little sparkle to your everyday looks. While I love the classic ensemble with a mix of pretty plaid and some ruffles, it’s the shimmering jewelry pieces that elevate this outfit. How gorgeous are they?! I’m particularly swooning over the embellished barette. Time and time again, I’m drawn to classic styles that stand the test of time such as this plaid ruffle skirt, navy sweater, and navy pea coat. All are key pieces that could have been worn twenty years ago or twenty years from now.

I always find myself the equivalent to a kid in a candy store when I have the opportunity to try new makeup. Products that promise to help with the appearance of blemishes are always on my radar as well. Being an acne sufferer for most of my adult life, this is something especially important to me. Charlotte Tilbury recently launched the new Magic Away Concealer, no longer exclusive to  Charlotte Tilbury stores, it is now available is over 200 doors and selling at quite impressive rate. I couldn’t wait to try it and Love flawless look I can achieve with it. 

What makes this concealer so magical and sought after? It reduces the appearance of blemishes, dark circles, fine lines, pigmentation, and redness. It has a new elastic second skin texture with full coverage lasting up to 15 hours. The concealer is delivered through the miracle precision beauty blender applicator that is designed to roll over imperfections, and hug the under-eye contour for the most flawless application.

The secret is in the all-star lineup of ingredients including Persian Silk tree bark extract, which acts as an age-defying, skin conditioning and rejuvenating agent to improve the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Palmitoyl Glycine helps the skin retain water and makes the skin look bouncy, fresh and youthful. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Extract of wild indigo, a native Indian plant used in Ayurvedic tradition helps to enhance the skin’s luminosity and brightens the under-eyes.

Happy Friday, friends and welcome to the weekend! There’s something about this outfits that’s quite magical to me. Maybe it’s the dazzling embellishments, perhaps it could be the beret, or even the fact that the entire outfit is pink, but one thing is for sure, the ensemble is a head turner. Nearly everyone I ran into, friends and strangers alike, complimented this look. This is the first time I decided to try wearing a beret too. The outfit started with this embellished pink sweater from Chicwish with faux pearls and beads along the neck line. The sleeves are sheer with a velvet tie at the wrist making the top extra feminine. These glitter flats with pearls are from Blair Eadie’s collection with Nordstrom. They are not only comfortable, but extremely pretty and run true to size. The belt is also from the collection, but currently sold out. The beret was the last piece, the topper if you will, to complete this cheery pink mix!

Last weekend NEPA saw its peak of the brilliant fall colors with the trees ablaze in stunning reds, oranges, and yellows. I headed over to Hillside Farms to capture the beautiful scenes all around me. Each glance seemed as if I had stepped into a painting. For my photographic adventure, I wore this burgundy coat from Chicwish to keep me stylishly warm. It has an oversized fit, perfect for layering underneath!, and faux pearls for buttons. I love how this adds a splash of color to my outerwear. When the cold weather hits, all we pretty much see is what coat or jacket someone has on while outside. Why not make it something colorful and fun!

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends! I went to go see the Nutcracker and the Four Realms, which definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. I also started and finished watching the series Bodyguard on Netflix. I’m pretty sure it just came out. It’s a good one! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. My dad and I also went to my church’s roast beef dinner and had the yummiest meal. Did everyone enjoy the extra hour of sleep? I’ve always loved that extra hour of shut eye, but it gets dark early now, which is sad, haha. Daylight is precious.

 This red sweater dress, like the Nutcracker, also puts me in the festive spirit! It’s a ribbed material with faux pearls trimmed along the front. The fit and flare style is darling and fun for a bit of a twirl. While the Christmas season comes to mind for this dresss, I’m also thinking of it as something to wear for Thanksgiving too. I’ve always been particularly drawn to a red dress for special occasions, be it a holiday or even a school dance. Fun fact, almost every school dance I went to, I wore a red dress. This one from Chicwish definitely fits the bill!

Good morning! Happy weekend and also welcome to November! I can hardly believe we are so close to the end of 2018. Where did this year go?! I’m excited for the holiday season though and all that comes along with it. For November, there’s obviously celebrating Thanksgiving, but I’m also looking forward to everything and anything that is cozy and bright. Think lots of layering, sweaters, some “extra” razzle dazzle, snuggly blankets, and also my Christmas movie list. It’s good to start rounding those up to start watching after Thanksgiving. We may have even started listening to Christmas tunes too! No judging lol.

Now, onto this English Country inspired look. This is actually my favorite fall outfit that I’ve styled this year! The color combination, with this stand out blazer, and all of the layering are what make me love this so much. The ensemble has a proper feel while still being relaxed and even a bit playful with the cute deer print on the Woolrich sweater. Jeans would also be an excellent choice for the outfit, but I feel the warm brandy color of the corduroys packs a beautiful color punch. The piece I am head over heels for is this English Wool blazer. My inspiration came from my grandma and grandpa Kretchmer, who were the epitome of the country gentleman and lady. I kept thinking of them and the classic English country looks when putting this look together. This gorgeous coat just came out and is very similar to the blazer, though as a topcoat. The color is just stunning!

Good morning, friends!! Taking care of ourselves sometimes slips to the back burner, but with the help of Glossybox, you can sneak away on a personal retreat and get in some much needed personal time! Below are the products in this months box. My personal favorite is the Pai-Shau Supreme Revitalizing Mask. A lifesaver for my hair!

Georgette Klingon Rose Clarifying Toner:  A botanical blend of Witch Hazel, antioxidants, and Aloe Vera dissolves dirt to deep clean your pores while maintaining healthy hydration and pH balance. The Rose, lavender and jasmine flower also help to keep the grease off your face throughout the day.

Pai-Shau Supreme Revitalizing Mask:  A new favorite of mine! This brings weightless bounce and volume to your hair. A mixture of five different kinds of teas, the blend protects, repairs, exfoliates, nourished and strengthens hairall at once. 

Invisibobble Sprunchie:  This gives you a blast from the past look you want with modern technology you need! The integrated spiral hair ring prevents tugging and pulling while keeping your hair in place, giving you the ultimate in comfort without scarifying style.

Good morning and happy Monday, friends!  I hope everyone had a great Halloween themed weekend! We most certainly did and got to partake in some Halloween events decked out in our costumes. I’m sure everyone can guess who Ava is this year, haha. I’ll be sharing those photos this Wednesday on Halloween. Reformation Sunday was also this past weekend. Our church celebrated with a big fall festival complete with a lunch-in, baking contest, pumpkin decorating, making a scarecrow, and a bonfire with singing and s’mores. Ava said it was the best party ever! Everyone really enjoyed her saying that. We had a fantastic time.

Speaking of the weekend, this look is one I wore recently while running some errands. I love layering with a vest, but more so, I adore the colors and how beautifully they all blend together. I always find myself drawn to burgundy’s and cranberry’s this time of the year. These OTK boots have become an absolute staple for me and get the most compliments of any shoe I’ve worn. They stand out and also work with just about every type of fall outfit. Let’s just say they POP! This one and also this one are very similar to them. The flannel plaid top has been on repeat quite a bit lately, usually when I need to grab something quick to put on to take Ava to school in the morning. Its soft with an oversize boyfriend fit. I’m wearing my normal XS and still have some room to wiggle in it.

Happy Friday, friends! This skirt from Chicwish combines two of my favorite fashion things about fall, plaid and tweed. I do feel the sizing is a bit off. I would recommend sizing down for a good fit. I got my normal XS and was practically swimming in it. That being said, the skirt itself is gorgeous and blends right in with all of falls stunning colors. While some may start to shy away from skirts with the cooler weather, it was a particularly cool and windy day when taking these photos, I say full speed ahead with skirts and dresses alike! I love wearing OTK boots with a skirt to help with the cold. An added bonus, OTK styles elongate your legs. Something is on the shorter side certainly appreciate.

I hope everyone has a spook-tacular weekend! Happy Halloween if your celebrating early!

Good morning and a very happy Wednesday to you! As soon as the temperatures start to dip, I pull out all of my jackets and even heavier coats since I know the freezing cold is not too far behind, especially if you live in PA. Right now I’ve been sporting some lighter weight jackets, like this denim one, and blazers for a practical layered look. We might be getting snow this weekend so that heavier coats will be making an appearance sooner than I anticipated! In any case, today’s look is a Fall favorite of mine. It’s an elevated casual style with a mix of prints and colors that come together beautifully. This plaid skirt has been a staple of mine every single autumn. A similar wrap version is here. Adding to the mix is this olive green top that fits rediculously well. Perfect for layering or wearing alone with a pair of jeans. I wore the top recently when visiting one of the local county fairs with a pair of leopard loafers, blue skinny jeans, and a cognac bag.

On a side note, I want to congratulate Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific on her gorgeous collaboration with Halogen and Nordstrom. The pieces are true examples of her style with key pieces literally selling out within minutes of going live. I’m looking at you pink double breasted blazer. The collection is a work of art. Congrats again Blair!

Darth Vader Pumpkin Kit || Pumpkin Kits || 

Happy Monday, friends! First off, the biggest congratulations to my cousin Chris and his new bride Julie on their beautiful wedding this past weekend! It was an amazingly lovely event filled with love and happiness. I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time. It’s rare to find two people so perfect for one another and these two are it.  

Halloween is fast approaching and my little Ava bug is extremely excited! I’ll give you two guesses who she is going to be, lol. This year we decided to go with a pumpkin decorating kit as the main “big” pumpkin with her favorite love Mr. Darth Vader. What I love about these kits is how easy they are and how you can re-use the parts for the following year. Darth came with black paint, a paint sponge, his head, two arms, and chest plate. We got ours at Target for $10. Once the paint was dry, I made small holes in the pumpkin to push the pieces into. I saw online some people used a decorative black pumpkin from a craft store like Michael’s instead of a real one, but we went with the real deal. After the pieces were in, we touched up some of the paint where it was sparse and voila! A pretty cool Vader pumpkin was born. Needless to say, Ava LOVES it! It’s a good idea for any last minute pumpkin decorating too. Happy decorating!!

This tweed dress from Chicwish,  adorned with pearl buttons and trimmed with fringe, has a classic elegant aura about it that works seamlessly for events ranging from business chic to dining out with friends. The perfect topper to complete the look is a vintage hat that Ava fell in love with during the shoot. She ended up wearing it for the majority of the time. She does look pretty chic in it if I do say so myself!

Woolrich Shirt Jac || AG Skinny Jeans|| Woolrich Rose Turtleneck || Tory Burch Riding Boots || Similar Kate Spade Bag || Similar Leopard Belt ||

Good morning, friends! One of my most trusted brands that I wear in the cooler months is Woolrich. It’s a company that originated in my home state of Pennsylvania and one that is synanomous with autumn and winter. A few years ago my dad and I started what is now a yearly tradition of traveling down to Woolrich, PA to visit their store and pick up some new pieces, usually outerwear, for the upcoming fall season. This year was a true treasure find with this shirt jac in rich beautiful vibrant colors. For those not familiar with a shirt jac, it’s a heavier shirt style meant to be worn as a layering piece. It’s perfect for those crisp mornings and nights. It’s not as heavy as a typical jacket and should have a shirt underneath. Typically, a shirt jac is left unbuttoned. It’s been a fan favorite for generations now. My dad loves to tell me about his favorite shirt jac when he was a kid and also how my grandfather had the full traditional hunting outfit in the famous red and black buffalo check pattern. I  paired mine with a dusty rose Turtleneck (my favorite layering price!) and some riding boots for the ultimate casual country weekend outfit.

Good morning and happy Thursday, friends! Ava and I enjoy taking walks to see the leaves starting to pop with their brilliant colors and decided to do one after having just gotten out of church this past Sunday. The weather was still warm and there was the peaceful calmness in the air that only a Sunday afternoon can bring. The sun peeked through every now and then with a nice golden glow giving the leaves a more vibrant image.

This outfit combines two of my favorite fall fabrics, tweed and velvet. The tweed top from Julie Brown NYC has the prettiest specks of blush, light blue, and shimmering gold threads in it. The ruffles add a feminine touch. It’s also a nice heavy fabric with excellent quality. When I first put this look together I thought how lovely it would be for a holiday gathering, Thanksgiving or even Christmas. During the fall months it would make a fantastic date night outfit too! To add an extra dose of something special, I wore these glitter pumps. My kind of ruby slippers, light pink style. They’re even more stunning in person and fit true to size.

Striped Pearl Neck Sweater c/o || Pearl Circle Skirt c/o || Red Bow Flats || Pearl Clutch || Jackie Kennedy Pearl Earrings || Red Lipstick || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Black Bow Hair Tie ||

Happy Wednesday, everyone! If there is one combination that will forever remind me of Parisian chic women, it’s a striped sweater, black skirt (or pants!) with a red lip and strand of pearls. This particular outfit also has an Audrey Hepburn feel to it. The obvious stand out detail of this look is the abundance of pearls adorning not one item, but four in total! The phrase more is more certainly applies here. Each piece works together, without being over the top, to bring an elegant feel and nod to the 1950s.

Jackie Kennedy famously said, “pearls are always appropriate,” and I quite agree. A black circle skirt and striped sweater are classic pieces that can be worn effortlessly and with a variety of outfits. They are staples in any woman’s closet blending in seamlessly throughout the decades. Adding pearls to each item, in a tasteful manner, elevates and makes them stand out from the crowd. I love how the sweater from Chicwish has three strands of pearls along the neckline almost as if it were a necklace. The quality of the sweater is top notch with a heavy fabric and true sizing. The circle skirt has the pearls only in the front and sparingly so, which I appreciate. The sizing for the skirt also runs true to size. The blush clutch, which I got on sale, is the prettiest shade of blush and has gorgeous big pearls dotted along the front flap. It also comes in black.

Good morning, friends! One of my absolute favorite things to do is to slip into some cozy lounge wear at the end of a long day. Its the beginning of my routine to help me unwind, relax, and get settled in for the night ahead. While I love to get dressed up when heading out, I equally love to get comfortable when I’m at home. Being comfortable does not mean having to forsake being put together! Lounge wear has come a long way in recent years, even being an ensemble itself. Joggers are pretty popular to be seen out and about now. I try to keep mine for when I’m around the house doing some chores or relaxing with a good book. Speaking of, the book I’m reading above, my current read, is The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters. I am so engrossed in this book! I take it everywhere with me just so I can catch a page here or there. You can almost always find me with a cup of hot tea and a good book in my hand.

Fuzzy Pink Bow Slippers || Sweater Knit Socks ||

These slippers are the perfect addition to any pajama or lounge wear items you may have. I love wearing the socks with a cozy nightgown or shorts set. Did you catch the adorable little bows on the back of the plush pink slippers?!? Not only do they feel like you’re walking on air, but they’re just as pretty with little details like this.

Below you’ll find some other lounge wear and pajama favorites of mine. You’ll find everything from cute prints, classic sets, beautiful colors, and of course the number one objective…being cozy and chic!

Sail To Sable Tweed Dress c/o || Similar Kate Spade Bag || Karen Walker Sunglasses || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Cognac Heels || Engraved Ring ||

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! If there is one fall fabric that has never gone out of style and I dare say would be considered a “trend” every year, it’s tweed. Visions of an elegantly dressed Coco Chanel always come to mind when thinking of this staple item. I always get a bit nostalgic when gazing upon tweed items. Be it a tweed dress, skirt, blazer, bag, or shoe, the fabric, much like the season it represents, seems to bring me a sense of wistful romantic notions and a longing for the good ol’ days. Each tweed piece has a timeless feeling about it just like this dress from Sail To Sable, a brand that evokes a sense of classic whimsy with a nod to New England style. This particular dress has cap sleeves (a favorite of mine!) with a custom designed plaid pattern in bold blue and green. The fringe right above the hemline adds a fun detail to the whole look!
