Montana Mountains

Went on an adventure today in the mountains in my new collared pullover! This tricky little number is actually one piece, which I personally like because I don’t have to keep pulling the undershirt down and readjusting, like I often do when I wear two pieces to get the same sweater/collared shirt combo. It’s well made, so it’s not noticeable that it’s one piece and even have slits up the side to give it even more of a two piece feel.

This pullover is perfect to wear to work or on your next autumn adventure! It comes in this green, yellow, black, grayish-blue, Brown, and light gray.

Today my adventuring led me to an adorable historic town in Montana called Red Lodge. This location has year round, seasonal attractions such as, skiing, snowboarding, and hiking. Or if you like to keep your feet flat ground, there’s plenty of exploring to do in the adorable shops that make up the town.

The Montana Candy Emporium is one of the many tourist attraction in the town that people from all over the world visit to fill up their bags full of candy from the past and present.

Not to mention that it’s filled with other intriguing sights besides the delicious treats. The walls are covered with old phones, old signs, and other nicknacks, while the floors are filled with bins of candy, old toys, and giant fire trucks.

Overall, it’s an adorable little town that’s worth grabbing a coffee from one of the many local cafes and taking a stroll through the shops.

A Box For Lady Bosses

I received a box from the recently launched Stylestarter clothing company and I couldn’t be happier about the content inside! So I wanted to share my experience, because if you’re like me and love new clothes, but are too busy chasing goals to go to a store and shop, you have to check them out! They’ll help you build the perfect style to show off who you are, without interrupting your busy schedule by shipping your brand new style goodies straight to your door every month.

How it works:

1. You select the box you wish to receive

2. You will receive an email request to fill out a Style Survey

3. A stylist will take the information you provided and start shopping!

4. Signed, Sealed, Delivered right to your door!

About the company:

Style starter was founded by lead stylist Kaylee Wilson with the goal of creating stylish custom outfits for the everyday woman. She is currently in her senior year as a fashion and merchandising student at Indiana of Pennsylvania. In addition to her education, Kaylee has experience in visual merchandising and freelance styling. She hopes to empower women through the art of dress.

My experience:

I filled out the survey that I was sent and really felt that I was able to express what I was looking for when wanted to develop my style and add to my closet. The stylist must have asked the right questions, because the three piece outfit I was sent (romper, blazer jacket, necklace/earring set) was definitely something that represented my style! The combination was something that I wanted to wear but may not have thought of without the help of my new personal stylist.

The outfit is perfect with the transitioning weather that we’re experiencing as the seasons are changing. I love outfits that I can wear throughout the seasons so that I feel I get more bang for my buck! The romper is absolutely adorable and the jacket is so versatile. I can wear the jacket with so many other combinations and occasions, especially to work. I have already worn the necklace and earrings a few times already with different outfits. They also sent me a face mask, which I thought was a very sweet touch!

The material and manufacturing of the clothes were great quality. These are pieces that I will be able to wear years to come as they were made to withstand even the most fickle washer and dryer.

If you are looking for a stress free way of showing off your unique personality and style, I hope that you will consider supporting another lady boss’ incredible dream and check out Stylestarter.

Cinched Wasted Skirt

Happy almost Valentine’s Day! Hope everyone has fun outfits picked out, whether they are celebrating or just want to feel beautiful on a Wednesday!

Here is another great Amazon Find to help transition us from colder weather into the long awaited warmer days. This adorable skirt (under $20!) can be worn on snowy days with tights and an oversized sweater. It also has a cinched waste for adjustable length, so it’s great to wear (as pictured) higher up with a crop top (under $15) for a sexy, but classy feel. This look works perfectly for now as well as spring! For a summer look, just lose the sleeves.

Jump(suit) Into Spring

All of these random warm days have me day dreaming of bright colors! One trend that I think is here to stay and will continue into the rest of 2018 is the jumpsuit. Let’s face it, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, a jumpsuit is adorable and comfortable! This jumpsuit is a perfect transition piece to have in your closet as we move towards those warm Spring days most of us have been waiting for. As the weather begins to warm up, you can pair it with a trendy faux fur jacket or a neautral color faux leather jacket, if you want to tone down the colors.

Want to know the best part? The jumpsuit is only TEN dollars and eligible for prime! The jacket is also budget friendly at $24, though sadly isn’t eligible for prime. I will say that I personally am very happy with the look and quality of the jacket, especially when comparing the price to others that I’ve seem.

What trends to you plan on carrying over into the Spring with you? I know I am going to keep rocking the space buns and chokers for far too long, but I can’t help it, I love both of those trends!

Need an affordable gown for a night out with your prince? Or you know a cost efficient bridesmaid dress that you won’t want to shove in your closet and never look at again? Well, whether it’s to celebrate your own love, someone else’s love, or just the love of yourself in a gorgeous dress- here is the perfect option! 

This Amazon steal comes in silver, black, burgundy, ivory, navy, pearl pink, red, and dusty pink! The dress is made of quality material and the lace embellishing really makes for a magic feel. The material also holds up when put it the test- it’s even Pittsburgh river tested and approved (as pictured above)!

I was able to spend a magical night twirling around the dance floor in this gown at a charity ball recently and loved the way the tulle moved. I fully support any excuse to wear a ballgown, so please share your photos with me if you decide to purchase this gown for an event or just to sit around your house feeling like royalty for a day!
