The One With the Tent


It's simply that time, folks.  The time where everything I wear will unapologetically make me look like a tent.  I'm actually happy to be in real clothes though after spending a little under a week in bed rest.  My Braxton Hicks contractions kicked it up a notch and bed rest was the medicine.  I am an on the go person, wakes up at 5 and is on the go until I lay my head down on my pillow, so bed rest wasn't as luxurious as it may sound.  Baby Girl is doing great though which is what's important.  So I'll take the tent look over last week and hope it's a trend that catches on!  Or maybe not...

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.

Weekend Photo Diary: Getting Ready for "School"


Pay no attention to the chaos happening behind me.  Lucas was kindly cleaning my vanity using my MAC brushes and Mia was barking at him to jump in the bed with her.  Yes, this is my fancy life.  This weekend was an errands full kinda days trying to get everything in order for Lucas' first day of "school" today.  WAHHHHHHHHH!  I'm a mess and I cannot even lie.  Ugh.  That boy has made me such a mush so I hope he loves it and doesn't think I abandoned him.  Here's to hoping for a great week...

Neutral Palette


This is my version of camouflage.  Almost everything blends in with my skin tone so it was quite the invisible cloak kinda day.  I can't say I hate it though.  I think I may try more neutral monochromatic looks this week to break it up from my all black all the time.  This was clearly something I wore to work and not something I would wear at home...with a two year old.  #whyareboysmessy

Weekend Photo Diary: 4th of July


We had such a great three day weekend that I am getting sad it's over as I type this post.  My husband and I had Friday off so I got a haircut while Lucas napped and afterwards we went for a Target run, of course.  On Friday night, we went with my parents to a fireworks show that the town I live in does every year.  This is the first year we have gone with Lucas and I was anxious to see how he would react to the noise.  As you can tell in the picture below, he loved it!  He kept looking up and saying WOW!  Now, I want to take him back to Disneyworld to see the fireworks show probably in a couple weeks.  We even gave him a sparkler for a hot second, literally, because, of course, he wanted to touch the fire.  Our favorite part of the show is when the orchestra starts playing the official songs for our armed forces and asks for those who have served to stand while their song played.  My dad always stands with pride when the Army song plays as he proudly served the army for ten years.  Lucas strangely stood when the Navy song played and when it was over, he sat back down.  Maybe he's foreshadowing the future.  Sunday was a relaxed day and we hit the pool early then did a little shopping afterwards.  I'm so sad the weekend is over but I definitely feel rested for the work week.  Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Because It's Too Hot


I do not like to wear sleeveless tops to the office.  I do not like to show shoulders period.  I'm weird.  I know it.  But it's too damn hot to not let loose every now and again.  I'm so wild.  Anyone else have weird things they avoid wearing?

Relaxing for the Work Week


We had a nice relaxing weekend at home mainly because we are all three recovering from a nasty cold.  Maybe next weekend we will use the pool and see more sunshine but for now, weekends at home are always nice.  We made some more improvements in the home decorating department and I'm starting to feel like I am almost done.  Almost.  There's one bedroom that is clearly the storage room and I'm surprised that it hasn't driven me crazy.  I'm usually the type that needs everything in its place and with that one room because I can close it and no one uses it, I've neglected it.  One day, I will tackle it but up next is the garage...oh gosh...the garage.  Any tips on garage organization??

Comfortable Clothes


I know I have talked about this before, but there are lots of days that I want to dress down as much as I can without looking drabby and still professional.  This is what I come up with.  I look at my calendar before I pick out what I'm going to wear and make sure I dress for occasion.  For example, I wouldn't necessarily wear something like this if I have meetings or have to be in court, but if I know I have hours upon hours of reading, writing, and researching, this is probably my go to.  And to be honest, it's my favorite kind of outfit...next to pajamas.

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 ;-)

The Day My Toddler Locked Me Out of My House


Check out that smug look up there.  I felt pretty put together.  Work went okay.  I got a lot done.  I picked up Lucas after work and then drove home.  I got home and lit up a delightful candle my sister gifted me me.  The dog made a mess while we were gone so I opened the bathroom door to clean up the mess.  My husband calls and says he will be little longer because he was picking up dinner.  No. Big. Deal.  I grab some trash and go into the garage to throw said trash away and then my heart drops.  BOOM. CLICK.  LUCAS LOCKED ME OUT!!!  I, of course, go into freak out mode.  THE CANDLE!  THE BATHROOM DOOR IS OPEN!  THE DOG IS WITH HIM!  I tried my best to calmly ask him to unlock the door to no avail.  He begins to wail and scream.  I haven't met my new neighbors yet but what better way to introduce myself than to run barefoot towards their house completely drenched in sweat and tears?  They kindly let me use their phone so I could call my hubby and tell him to slam on his breaks.  So good news is I know who my neighbors are.  Bad news, they think I'm crazy.  I run back to the house and, in this very outfit, proceed to try to break the door down.  The whole ordeal couldn't have been more than 7 minutes but it felt like an eternity.  My husband opened the door from the other side and came home to me and Lucas both screaming.  So right before Mother's Day weekend, I have an EPIC MOM FAIL!  I can't explain what a horrible experience that was and just thinking about how scared Lucas must have been makes me cry all over again.  Ugh.  At least I looked put together today ;-)

Office Casual


Sometimes, okay, all the time, it's nice to be a little more casual at work on those days you plan on getting tons of work done.  I'm trying to tackle my never ending to-do list so that I can be more efficient at work.  I'm probably in the minority when I say that I love having lots and lots of things to do at work.  Not only does it make my day go by faster, I so look forward to winding down at home and feeling accomplished.  On these busy days, I like to dress down as much as I can without wearing sweats to work.  Sweats and the courtroom?  Not a good look.

Hearts and Bows


Christmas has come and gone and it's now back to work.  It's so sad when Christmas is over since I get so excited about the house decorated and lighted, my sisters in town, and Christmas Eve and morning.  I'm in full denial that the year is near over so I'm already making plans for 2015 to get me motivated.  When I was pregnant, I pretty much stopped shopping for clothes (for me anyways).  Now that Lucas is a toddler, our house is nearly done decorating, and travel plans have been made, I'm finding myself getting that itch to update my closet.  Luckily, it came at a time where almost all of my favorite store were running major promos.  So between updating my wardrobe and obsessing over home decorating, the delivery man and I are going to be best buds!  Oh and that's another thing, I can't physically shop anymore, can't do it, won't do it.  Sooo ebates and I are becoming quite the BFFs!

Plaids


I am absolutely smitten with this sweater from Target.  I've had it in my closet for awhile but only just now wore it because I was waiting for these Sole Society shoes to arrive.  I'm weird and "save" outfits even though I swore I would not save outfits anymore.  Does anyone else do that or is it just me?

Sunnies


Sunglasses are one of my favorite accessories.  I've had my eye on a certain style for awhile but with lots of moving, decorating, and home purchases expenses I've been having lately, pricey accessories just are not as important at the moment.  I was so happy that French brand, Polette, a leader on the online optical market, offered to send me one of their sunglasses.  I was even more ecstatic to see Polette carries sunglasses similar to the ones I have eyeing (pun intended) for awhile!  Okay, even MORE ecstatic to see that the price of lenses start from $6.99...seriously.  With highly competitive prices and even customization, it's no wonder that I absolutely love these frames!  I have been wearing these non-stop.  I chose the VIKKI sunglasses and I highly recommend them.  If you would like to check them out, their social media links are at the end of this post.

On the Go


Cardigans, pants, and hair up seems to be my jam lately.  I haven't figured out our new schedule yet and, clearly, steaming my clothes and drying my hair before work has not been put on the schedule.  Most mornings are pretty hectic and I very much look forward to getting into a schedule so I have more morning time with my little boy.  One day I say, one day!

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.

Neutrals


I promise I wasn't angry while taking these pictures contrary to my sour face above.  It was the first cold morning we've had this season and I realized that when packing up for our move, I put in storage all my warm clothes.  Luckily, our new home is days away from completion and I am thrilled!  For now though, I'm still working with my limited closet until I can unpack the rest out of storage.  

I've been loving black and camel colors together (seen here) and loved this look on Franziska.  Black and white will always be favorite color combos and it occurred to me that I've used the combination in lots of important aspects in my life (wedding, house, decor...)  I'm getting deep here, people...it's only Wednesday...

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!
