Green Sunglasses

The past couple of weeks have been cray cray.  We went on a family vacation, the week we got back I had to kick it into high gear for the kids birthdays and birthday party, the next week I was busy and traveling for work, and now I'm getting things ready for Lucas starting Pre-K.  I'm pretty darn exhausted!  

But in more interesting news, how fun are these green sunglasses?!  I first saw these when I went to New York in April and didn't buy them thinking it wasn't something I needed.  Well, duh.  Of course I needed them!  It's such a fun color and I love that it adds some color to my black and white all the time uniform :-)

Pink and Leopard

Rynetta recently posted a magenta, camel, and leopard print outfit on her Instagram account and I just loved the color combo so much.  This top has a peplum back detail that makes it very flowy and forgiving...which, I mean, is a must ;-)  I'm actually typing this post out in my car waiting for preschool doors to open so I apologize for the brevity!

This weekend we celebrated Father's Day and my 34th birthday on the same day.  I had written in my planner to "do big things today" but instead I took an unheard of afternoon nap and I call that a success these days!  The day was spent with loved ones and cake - also great success :-)  Hope you all had a great weekend!

Subtle Animal Print

I recently was on the hunt for the perfect leopard cardigan that didn't scream animal print and I think I found it with this one.  Not only do I love the subtle pattern the material is nice and breathable which is a must in this Florida heat...hence the pony tail.  There is literally nothing more annoying than hair sticking to your neck due to the heat UGH.

Pink Lady

I usually stay away from pink...and ruffle sleeves...but I just couldn't help myself with this one.  I just loved the color and the flirty sleeves that I couldn't pass this up!

Another Striped Sweater

I don't know how many striped sweaters and shirts I own but it's a lot and it's never enough.  I just love a good striped top or sweater.  I've recently began purging my closet and getting rid of things I haven't worn in over a decade really.  I found a top that I work in one of my sorority functions and I graduated college in 2005...and...it was a striped top.

I Am Very Busy


So what does it look like when I plan on shutting my office door, hoping to see absolutely no one, but needing to get a million and one things checked off my to do list?  Exhibit A and B for you to see.  This is a casual don't look at me but check on me at 5 p.m. if I haven't left yet kinda look.  It's obviously not the best, but I'm keeping it real over here and letting you know...I gots sh*t to do and I mean business.

Casual


It's been back to a full work week but not without a little bit of hiccups.  Lucas must have caught a bug from last weekend so I worked from home Monday so he would feel comfortable.  Being a working mom is no joke but it is always the worst when your child is sick.  I think this is when my working mommy guilt comes swinging back at me since all I want to do is be there for him.  Oh vey.  I'm waiting for someone to assure me that things get easier because...well, it doesn't feel like it.  See, sometimes I get deep here on Dainty and Decadent.  Welcome.

Oversized


Happy New Years Eve!  I have big plans of warming up my favorite pjs and watching Bravo shows all night long.  Seriously.  Okay, I cannot tell a lie but I may just throw away all of the shirts in my closet and replace them with oversized shirts.  For reals.  The way I see it, I can continue eating Nutella out of the jar since my oversized shirts will conceal my growing mid section!  In all honesty, I'm feeling this oversized top and plan on purchasing many more.

It's been an absolutely crazy two weeks which is why I've been quiet on this blog.  The week before last, I was hit with a nasty virus that kept me home for almost a week.  I don't remember being that sick in a long time.  Then, last Friday, we closed on our first home!  So I finally have my closet back, yay!  AND it's all in boxes, NOT so yay!  We are slowly getting everything in order and, although, it's been chaotic, it's been amazing all at the same time.

Baggy


This is definitely one of those comfy office clothes days.  Those days that you want to feel completely comfortable done up yet undone kinda days, if that makes any sense.  Reading that sentence back, it doesn't make sense to me either but I've been having lots of busy days lately and needing to feel more relaxed.  I'm hoping for that when things settle down (work, moving, etc) I can get more into the blogging routine because I miss it so much!

Blues


I think I need more blue...if only my blue suede shoes weren't in storage...kidding, about adding more blue because I totally have blue suede shoes (exhibits A and B).  What kind of an Elvis fan would I be without blue suede shoes?  (FYI,  I am a HUGE Elvis fan and walked down the aisle to Fools Rush In).  Happy Monday!

Casual Friday


It's 2014 and I am still rockin' a waist tied sweater like nobody's business.  Okay, I ended up wearing the sweater in its ended purpose once I stepped foot in my Antarctica office but I judge no one who wants to tie their sweater around their waist.  I will judge if you wear socks with sandals...Have a great weekend!

Retro


There's something about black and white polka dots and pearls that feels retro housewife to me.  I felt a little like I Love Lucy and in a great way.  Tell me I wasn't the only kid that watched I Love Lucy reruns on Nick at Nite?  I love the fit and ease of shirtdresses and I always forget this when thinking about making a clothing purchase.  I've been good all summer and not made very many clothing purchases for myself.  We are currently having our first home built and I'm saving up for all those lovely closing costs.  However, I do have my eye on a few items that I hope to share in a post soon!

Pane


I've been quite the little busy bee and have not had time for myself.  Hence, the silence over here.  I'm lucky there's a long weekend so I can try to catch up on life.  How is August already almost over?  I'm keeping this post short and sweet since Bravo and Pretty Little Liars are waiting for me.  Yes, I'm 31 and watch Pretty Little Liars...

Work Uniform


I pretty much realized that I have a work uniform: dress, sweater, long necklace.  I'm in a rut.  I may not post every day but believe me, I'm most likely wearing some variety of the above.  Anyone else find themselves unintentionally wearing a uniform to work?

Bad blogger!  Bad blogger!  Just when I start getting into the posting groove, poof!  Work hits me hard and Lucas' birthday party approaches (this weekend and so excited/sentimental!)  Just when I start thinking things will start slowing down, they multiple.  I won't complain though since there are worse things in the world.  My little guy's party is this weekend and this Friday he'll turn one...ONE!  I think I'll sign off now that I got misty eyed thinking about my baby no longer being a baby ;-(

Outfits of Work Days Past


It's no secret that I've seriously slacked on outfit posts.  Some days we'll take pictures but I just don't find the outfit or pictures blog worthy.  I'm striving to be more inspired and dress up a little more because I do believe that if you feel like you look well, your attitude is better.  I'm starting to work out again and think I've gotten into a routine.  Hopefully, getting into a workout routine will help me in opening up the options in my closet as well.  Oh, and  yes, I am as pale as Casper and will definitely need some sun this summer...

Florals and Grey


After months and months of not buying myself any clothes (pregnancy then post pregnancy weight), I'm finally starting to get the urge to buy a couple pieces to add to my closet.  I've sort of changed my mentality in shopping.  I've never been one to frivolously spend but, now, I'm finding that I only want to buy things if I truly love it and know I can get a lot of use out of it.  99.9% of the time, I shop online and now I triple think before I click the check out button.  If it's not something I love, mother's guilt tells me that I could save the money and put into Lucas' savings account.  Anyways, this rambling is because I saw this shirt at Target and almost didn't buy it but it made me feel happy which is just what I need to get me through long days.  

PS: I'm completely aware that this post is one big rambling hot mess ;-)

Fancy Tweed


Admittedly, I have not purchased very many pieces of clothes for myself in a reeeaalllyy long time.  I could probably count on one hand the things I have bought myself since probably May of this year.  Not to continue to complain about the baby weight, but I refuse to buy new clothes until I work the weight off.  Otherwise, I know myself, and will get too comfortable.  I digress.  Cyber Monday rolls around and the influx of sales emails roll into my inbox.  I caved and perused J.Crew Factory online when I spotted this most perfect tweed skirt.   Even though I said I would not buy any new clothes until I can fit in my old ones, I just. had. to.  I don't own any tweed skirts and, ugh, it makes me feel oh so fancy!  My next goal will be to find more fancy feeling clothes.  I'm not sure what that is yet but feeling fancy is just, well, fancy.
