Today is my first day back in the office, eek! On some levels it feels like the past twelve weeks flew by and isn’t exactly long enough time with my new babe. Thankfully I’m only working part time over the next few months which means lots more days full of baby snuggles.
Jumping on the Blush Crush craze I paired my favorite black pull on pants with a soft blush top and a white blazer for my first day back to work. I dug out these super old blush snake skin heels too. Truth be told I’m a little nervous to walk in heels since it’s been awhile! I added a few of my rose gold jewelry pieces to finish the look. Also, I can hardly believe it but it only took 10 minutes to curl my hair! Winning Monday morning in my book!
One of my favorite ways to switch up wearing the same wardrobe pieces is mixing up the outfit details- the shoes, the jewelry, the makeup. With the looks I wore most of this winter (here, here and here) it was easy to mix around details to keep myself from focusing that I only had a handful of tops that fit right after pregnancy. Switch a bootie to a riding boot, swap a necklace or give myself a fresh mani can really make a difference. (Pro tip: this is a GREAT technique to use when traveling- create different looks by packing less clothes […]
I am super excited that the gorgeous green blouse my husband bought me for Christmas now fits! Over the holidays I instantly fell in love with the rich green hue and pleated back of this blouse. It kinda killed me to watch it sit in my closet but there was no way it was going to look good over the bump! I styled it with cigarette jeans, suede wedged booties and simple jewelry for our St. Patrick’s celebration this year. We met some friends for the kids to play, watch Irish dancing and of course a little green beer. What did you do? […]
I truly have a love for the burgundy/merlot/wine family. And today I’m sharing another one of the pieces I picked up in that color. So let me start by saying I am not the biggest fan of cold shoulder tops. Idk why, they just aren’t really me?… However, the moment I put my hands on this cold shoulder knit top, I didn’t care if that style is me or not- I wanted to wear this fabric ASAP. Maybe it’s the winter, or maybe it’s the Mama Bear in me- but if it’s soft and comfy, I have to have it […]
Hello, meet what the bestie and I refer to as The Blardigan. She has one, I have one- and it’s heaven really. What is it you ask? Pretty much the most soft cardigan ever made. It’s fuzzy, warm, oversized and ombre. It’s almost like wearing a blanket. I even purchased my mom one for Christmas. It’s that amazing. I wore the heck out of this Barefoot Dreams Cardigan from the moment it was gifted to me. I’m talking once or twice a week. It’s the best to wear on a cold day, especially when snuggling a newborn. Or brunching. Or […]
This oversized knitted poncho has been my serious #1 go to sweater this season. Almost anytime someone would come to visit the baby, I’d throw this on. During holiday shopping I grabbed it on sale at Banana Republic Factory for $30. At the time, I was 34+ weeks pregnant and even at an xs, this sweater fit over the bump. Even though it runs large, I saved it for post-baby anyway. I’ve been head over heels with the burgundy/wine/blood red color since fall and I adore the chunky knit. It’s super easy to throw a long sleeve tshirt underneath and pair […]
I had so much fun creating an outfit for a Mardi Gras party! I knew I wanted to wear a pleated bright green maxi skirt and I was happy to scoop one up on Amazon! Pro tip: If planning to purchase this skirt, the size refers to length not waist. I also knew I wanted to wear a fun head piece. I thought about making one until I spotted a Fleur de Lis headband on Amazon. Then I snagged a purple long sleeve tee on super clearance online at Target. The last piece I needed was a belt. I headed to Hobby Lobby for black sequin […]
