Sweater Blazer


Last week, I talked about my aversion to my structured work uniform, today it's my aversion to structured blazers.  I can't stand them.  Since I need to always have a blazer on hand just in case I tend to find more relaxed blazers suit (pun intended) me more.  I love jersey and sweater blazers because not only do I think they still look professional but they are comfortable for long days at the office as well.  It may not be the most chic look, but I feel put together and ready to tackle the days work and wrestle a toddler for a diaper change ;-)

Mirror Mirror

Yeah, I need to buy a new mirror and once I do, I need to keep it clean.  Anywhos, I've had a bad cold that my dear son has graciously passed on to me and instead of resting up, I'm in appellate brief drafting land...and clearly not cleaning any mirrors.  Thank goodness for long weekends!

If You Like Pina Coladas...


and wearing bright neon at work...The "work uniform" for my profession can be pretty standard: suit and collared shirt.  I happen to loathe structured suits and collared shirts.  I find them to be too stiff and when I'm looking at a 9+ hour workday, the last thing I want to wear that long is a stiff suit.  

I was talking to a friend of mine in the same legal profession about how I hate collared shirts.  She asked me if I owned any Express Portofino Shirts.  I had not and, apparently, I've been missing out.  She promised that they weren't stiff and that the shirts were comfortable to wear for a long period of time and she was right!  I, of course, found the brightest most obnoxious (in a good way) pattern but I love how soft the fabric is.  I couldn't help myself with the pineapple pattern in bright pink!  

I must admit that this shirt was tucked in during the day but when I snapped these I, obviously, forgot to tuck my shirt back in.  So work uniforms don't have to be uncomfortable and can exist in pineapple print.  WIN WIN!

The Day My Toddler Threw Up All Over Me


This "the day my toddler..." could become a weekly series it seems like.  Hopefully, not since they usually involve me in a panic.

I've always been on the hunt for a cargo type blazer that I could wear to the office.  I squealed when I saw this jacket pop up online at Loft and decided to order up for a looser fit.  I'm glad I did because after I picked up Lucas after work and walked through the front door carrying him on my hip, he projectile vomited all over my jacket and shirt.  Yep.  So after a wash, the jacket shrunk a little bit but I still like the fit.  See, Lucas was just watching out for you guys so you know prior to purchasing how the jacket holds up in the wash!  Sweet boy.  

FYI, he's feeling much better ;-)

Weekend Photo Diary


Lucas was recovering from a virus and I thought for sure he would still be sick on Saturday because he didn't wake up until 9:00 am...9:00 AM!!!  Luckily, when I went into his room, he was all smiles and laughs.  We treated ourselves to a little boutique shopping where I picked up more Voluspa and Capri Blue candles (obsessed!) and had frozen yogurt.  Lucas also got a much needed haircut.  I swear, this kid gets a haircut once a month because it grows so incredibly fast.

Lucas is a water baby and playing at his water table is a good hour and a half of pure bliss for him (and me!)  Nothing like a nice and relaxing weekend to gear us up for a busy work week.

PS  These pants are like wearing pajamas and, therefore, I love them.  Buy them and thank me later.

Necklace Obsession


I have something to confess...I'm obsessed with Kendra Scott Rayne and Rae necklaces!  After my husband gifted me this one and my mom gifted me the one I'm wearing in these pictures, I purchased a pink Rae necklace.  I could buy every color if I could.  Have you ever gotten obsessed with something and wanted every color?  I was like that too with the Revlon lip butters.  I guess I have an obsessive personality so I'm trying to reel myself in on certain things because, yeah, student loans and toddlers are expensive.  Ugh, I hate when I'm responsible ;-)
