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!

Lemonade

What a fun print to wear to the office!  I'm trying to get out of my neutral rut and I think this just did it.  Of course, I had to add black and white in there but I was going to work, after all.  Plus, no one can get mad at a lawyer wearing a bright lemon cardigan, right???

Saturday Night Live

Live from New York, it's SATURDAY NIGHT!  My sister has lived in the city for nearly 7 years or so and this is the first time I've gone to see her at work.  Unfortunately, it was a show week so we couldn't spend a lot of time with her but she did get us tickets to the show and we got to spend time with her during the live show as well.  The night we went, Jimmy Fallon hosted and the musical guest was Harry Styles.  Oh my were the fan girls hyped to see him!  After the show, my sister took us directly on the stage for a picture and I bumped into someone who happened to be Mr. Harry Styles and I feel like we're practically married now.  The show was so funny and I loved seeing my sister in her element.  She has worked so hard to get to where she is and I am so proud of her.  We had a great time and it was a looooong night for this grandma.  We didn't leave the studio until 1:30-2:00 a.m. ish and had to leave our hotel at 4 am to catch our flight...horrible timing on my end.

Well, that's the last of my NYC recap.  It was such an amazing weekend and a great way to recharge our batteries.  We are always go go go and so much of our lives revolves around our kids and work that it was nice to just focus on ourselves for a couple of days.  This trip also was a reward for major work accomplishments my husband and I recently had so having such a great trip was definitely motivation to keep up the hard work so we can play that much harder.

Central Park

Shock to no one that I went back to the park for a second time.  It's literally my favorite.  Saturday morning, we ate breakfast at the Laduree restaurant down near Soho and walked a bit through the area before taking a taxi up near our hotel.  I was on a little bit of a mission.  I had just recently purchased this bag that I wore the beginning of our trip but I was on the hunt for the one I'm wearing here.  I loved seeing the monogram a lot of other people have but I desired the all black bag as it's something a little more classic that I can wear to work and out and about.  I have been dreaming about this bag since I saw it online.  I went into an LV store in Orlando but they were all out and told me that it was unlikely that any store would have any in soon.  The first day I was in New York, I went to both LV stores and the boutique in Saks had ONE bag.  As I thought more about it, I started feeling guilty about indulging and treating myself.  My husband kept trying to buy it but I said I wanted to think about it even though I not so secretly wanted it badly.  It's strange because before kids, I didn't think twice before I bought something for myself, now with kids, I literally think of every little detail and try to talk myself out of everything.  Sure enough, the next day, the bag was gone.  As we walked through 5th Avenue to get to the park, we meandered into the 5th Avenue LV store, and there it was!  As I was trying it on in front of a mirror, two other women were asking for it and I could hear the women asking the SA if they could purchase it.  It was just meant to be and although it was definitely a splurge and I'm done buying handbags for a long time, it is my favorite bag ever.  I've been wearing it non-stop since buying it and immediately put my stuff in it in the store and walked out (after paying, of course).  

As soon as we got to the park, I promptly took out my Laduree macarons (yum!) and walked through until we got to the Boathouse.  We bought some pretzels, people watched, the weather was perfect, and, ugh, take me back!  It was another great day in the city.  In the afternoon, we freshened up at the hotel to get ready for dinner and to see my little sister hard at work at Saturday Night Live!

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.

Weekend Down Time

Because we are so busy during the week, it would make sense that we would like to just stay home on the weekends but, it has become healthier for all of us to get out of the house and be busy at least one of the weekend days.  It comes to no surprise to those that know us that we are a Disney family, Disnerds really.  With our annual passes and living so close to the parks, we regularly go but on the weekends that we stay home, it feels nice to get out of the pjs and enjoy time at the park or at a kids play area.  Part of working through my working mommy guilt is to feel like the time I do have with my kids is precious and not wasted.  I want my kids to know that even if I'm working, when I am home with them, I am hands on and enjoy being with them.  And I couldn't help but sneak in the bottom photos of Olivia!  I mean look at those thighs!  I'm obsessed!

Back and Ready

What is this?? What is this?? Remember me??? Yes, folks, I'm back.  I took a super long blogging break but I'm excited...to be back!  Honestly, I was overwhelmed with work and other priorities that I was taking horrible care of myself and, thus, blogging took a back seat.  I'm not ashamed to admit that after having Olivia, my post-partum depression was at an all time high and with going back to a high paced career and adjusting to life with two kids, it took it's toll on me.  Thankfully, although I don't ever think my working mommy guilt will ever go away, I'm getting a better handle on things and life is great.  I'm looking forward to continuing this blogging adventure and posting about life lately including an amazing trip to New York just my husband and I took!  Oh and I also have been shopping!  For reals though, I feel like I haven't shopped for myself in forever and it finally feels great to buy a nice handbag...or two...

Oh and I'm also training for a marathon!  So.Much.To.Tell.You.

Working Mom Uniform

Long gone are the days of blow drying my hair in the mornings, setting them in curlers, gracefully putting my makeup on while sipping coffee and listening to Bravo in the background.  Basically, mornings are a blur now and by the time I get to the office, I feel like I've already worked a full day.  I wouldn't trade my new normal for the world but with the good you get a little craziness in the mix.  So now I have what I call a working mom uniform which is basically a tunic long enough to cover the bum, legging trousers that are work appropriate and some sort of long necklace or necklace of any sort.  Done.  It's my go-to, don't-need-to-think-about-it outfit for those mornings that you wish you could restart or drive yourself to the spa or nordstrom or target or back to bed.

The Flippin' Weekend

What is this?  What is this?  Yep, a weekend where I actually put makeup on my face and clothes other than sweats!  Anytime that I manage to brush my hair on a weekend is a win for me.  This time, I went to my friend's sip and see and for those of you not in the South, sip and see's are common baby shower type parties thrown after the baby is born so you can "sip" (usually wine or champagne) and "see" the baby.  Don't worry, there was no "sipping" for me this time.  As I held my friend's sweet baby boy, I wondered if caring for a newborn would just come back to me.  With my first, a lot of trial and error so I'm hoping for the second time around, things will be easier?  Well, as easy as caring for a newborn and threenager can be...pray for me!

Baby Shower for Baby #2


On Saturday, my mom threw us a beautiful baby shower for our baby girl and it was every bit of sugar and spice I could have ever dreamed of!  We are so blessed with a great family and friends that came to celebrate with us.  We had a great time and baby girl definitely got spoiled!  

I'm 32 weeks now and this pregnancy has been flying by that I get moments of wanting to savor every moment and feelings of sadness when I realize that Lucas will no longer be the baby.  Hormones are a crazy thing and mine are definitely giving me the run around.  Our world is about to get a little wild but that just makes life more interesting, right?

Grayer Days


What is this?!  An outfit post with real photos?  Why yes, my friends, I have crawled out of my hole and made half an effort to look human at work.  AND the bump photos are back, folks!  As someone recently told me, this pregnancy has kicked my butt.  You know those women that are only sick during their first trimester?  Yeah, I'm not one of those people.  However, I'm done with the pity party and am trying to feel better about myself.  What better way to make yourself feel better than throwing on a comfy/cute outfit, brushing your hair, and putting some makeup?  Hey, it works for me and I'll take it!

Fall Plaid


I think I've complained enough on this blog over how busy and blah I've been feeling lately.  And what do I do to get out of a blah funk?  Why shopping and chop my hair off of course!  But seriously, I hardly shop for myself anymore and when I do, it's something that I really love and/or need.  This sweater fell into the really really want category and it's true, I really really love it.  As for my hair, I've been loving short hair lately and felt like a trim was in order to boost up my spirits.  As superficial as it sounds, these did the trick and I have a little more pep in my step these days :-)

The Blue Tunic


I didn't much to share this weekend besides getting an amazing facial but ain't no way I'm posting a pic of my bare face on here.  So please excuse the crappy Iphone pics but I LOVE this blouse!  It's a recent purchase from Express and on top of having the most vibrant blue color, it is super comfortable.  I'm a tunic phase of life and this little guy fits right in!


 There's Mia hanging out behind!

Won't You Be My Neighbor


It's been the longest week in all of the land and I wanted to brighten things up and wear this dress that I've had in my closet for awhile.  I've had my argyle sweater for awhile and it always reminds me of Mr. Rogers.  I have to admit that I was so stressed the entire day that I would stain my dress by food or pen marks but luckily there were no stains.  I have to count the little victories.  Happy weekend!

The Wedding Date Necklace


I am in love with this Onecklace roman numeral necklace!  I chose to have my wedding date engraved and all day I was asked questions about this necklace wherever I went - which being honest was work, daycare, and the grocery store.  Personalized jewelry is always my favorite.  I have another necklace that my husband surprised me with the night we were engaged that has our engagement day engraved on a heart pendant.  Although I'm a girl that loves her costume jewelry, it always feel special for me to wear jewelry that means something and I know I will treasure for a long time.  Onecklace promo code maria10 will get you 10% off your Onecklace purchase!

Weekend Photo Diary


Well, we planned to go to Magic Kingdom this weekend and meet up with my cousin and her family but Lucas woke up with a fever which resulted in a Saturday morning doctor's visit.  Luckily, it is just an ear infection and he is on the mend.  But this meant that the rest of the long weekend was spent indoors so it was a lazy weekend indeed.  PS: That kid LOVES the doctor's office!  He stays so still while they check him and as soon as we are home, he goes straight to his doctor's kit to check on all of our vitals.  Hmmm, future doctor or veternarian???

Below are a couple of fun things that did happen this weekend.


My hubby did something so incredibly amazing!  The way I shop is online and I'll start a cart at my favorite stores and either wait for a sale or promo.  In that time, I'm usually updating the cart, removing things, etc.  My husband knows this habit of mine and the other day, knowing I've been really stressed, told me that he bought my Nordstrom cart.  Of course I was excited and then it hit me that I had put a David Yurman cable bracelet in pearl in my cart!  I immediately started sweating as I always do with big purchases but he told me that he had been wanting to get it for me and just saw that I had a couple of other things in my cart as well.  My other cable bracelet, my parents bought me for my high school graduation and I have worn it every day since I opened the gift.  The cable buckle bracelet is another my parents bought me for Christmas and I also wear it every day.  I'm so excited to have another bracelet that has a sweet story attached to it.  Isn't he the best??


My Erin Condren life planner has a home!  On Saturday, the delivery man made my planner nerd self so happy when he delivered the most beautiful carry all clutch.  Yes, my planner also has a case now and it's marvelous.  I had been going back and forth on whether I needed a case or not but since I use it daily and it was getting tossed around my bag, etc, I could justify the purchase.   The case is customizable and I really liked this mint color with the scales print.   

I revealed myself as a planner nerd last week and as a proud planner nerd, I must now show you my weekly spread before I ruin it with my work-to-do list:


Happy short work 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

The Perfect Summery Dress


This Anthropologie dress is one my husband sweetly bought me for Mother's Day after I kept adding it then removing it then adding it to my shopping cart over and over again.  I get like this lately because I only want to buy things I love.  Gifts are a different story though, duh.  And I really love the dress now.  I think it's the perfect summery dress and, as you can tell in the picture above, is very flowy.  I don't love that I'm hunching over in these pictures but I love a good empire waist dress.  Anthropologie for the win!

Striped Shirt Problem


So if there is one thing I don't need any more of in my closet, it's another striped shirt.  But I just cannot stop myself.  As much as I tell myself that I only want to buy clothes that I truly love, I just can't help a good striped shirt.  I seriously have a striped shirt problem but I can't say I mind.  I dress for the day I anticipate so I was okay wearing a tee to work as I hoped to stay put in my chair and gets tons of stuff completed.  So another striped shirt was necessary ya know.
