Hey, lovelies!  How was your weekend?  I hope it was great!  Mine was really good except that I got sick with the flu 🙁  But, it’s not too horrible, I should be fine in a couple days.  Friday night we went to Heinz Field for a charity event for Dress For Success Pittsburgh!  It was amazing!  Dress For Success Pittsburgh is an incredible charity that helps women get the clothing they need for jobs and court hearings such as PFAs and custody cases.  They have a boutique down in Pittsburgh where they take in clothing and accessory donations, and women come to meet with volunteers and staff members to help suit them up for work or court related matters.  They even use their proceeds to buy clothing and supplies for women going into jobs where they need uniforms and other necessities, like hardhats and work boots!  How amazing is that?  I can’t wait to get involved and volunteer for this organization.  I was talking to a lady who had been suited twice by Dress For Success and she said she wouldn’t have gotten to where she is today without them!  She’s been promoted several times and had the opportunity for furthering her education!  I love any kind of organization that helps to empower women!

On the fashion front, it’s been just cool enough lately to enjoy sweaters!  Although, it got pretty hot again on Sunday… haha, still searching for fall out there!  It’s gonna happen sometime, guys.  Anyway, I’m a huge fan of the off-the-shoulder sweater!  I love the over-sized cozy feel of them, and how they’re kinda slinky on your body.  Just enough skin, but not too much!  I like that you can dress them up with pants or skirts, or go the casual route with some distressed denim, too! I saw this sweater by Line & Dot paired with a black leather mini skirt on the model!  I loved it!  I went for a more casual look for everyday wear with my favorite new Good American cropped, distressed, straight leg jeans!  These jeans are really trending right now.  You can find similar pairs at just about any retailer!  I love how they show off your shoes.  They look great with heels or boots for this time of year!  I kept things neutral with my favorite Steve Madden nude block heels, and Ellen & James straw circle bag.  I’m also wearing the earrings that I’m still in love with from Vanessa Mooney!  These earrings make any outfit feel so much more luxe, I’m totally obsessed with them! 😀

Barkley had such a fun day at this photoshoot!  We went to the Mars Train Station in downtown Mars, PA.  It’s really cute!  There was nobody around, so he got to run around and sniff everything!  There’s a really cute little trolley for kids to ride that local elderly people volunteer to run! If you live in the area and looking for something to do, definitely check it out 🙂
