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???

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!

Winter is Coming

And by winter, I mean Florida winter as in 65 degrees and it feels wonderful.  The weather has been cooling down here and the moment I felt even the slightest of cool air, I went into full panic mode realizing that Lucas had outgrown his sweaters and I did not have even one sweater for Olivia.  #momfail.  Never fear because I shopped my little heart out and bought my littles a whole new set of cold weather clothes only to wake up the next day to 80 degree weather...womp womp.

Basic Witch

Another day, another oversized sweater and flats to the office kinda day.  But it's Halloween!  I am so so so excited for both my babies to dress up tonight!  Lucas chose his and Olivia's costumes and they will be going as Woody and Jessie from Toy Story.  I mean....holy cuteness!  

The pictures have a weird light and lines throughout but I couldn't love this oversized sweater more.  I bought it during the anniversary sale right before my maternity leave started and since I wore pajamas for three months straight, this was my first time wearing it.  I usually go for blacks and neutrals but this burnt orange color was just perfection.

The Cover the Booty Shirt

Just a quick post today to give a shout out to the genius who invented high/low tunics.  That person deserves an award, a prize, a billion dollars.  Seriously.

Finding A Routine

The pictures are blurry, the clothes are wrinkly, and I forgot to put on mascara which pretty much ruined my day.  Kidding aside, it was a hot mess of a morning but I am determined to get back into the swing of things which includes blogging.  So if you can look past the blurry pics and mascara less eyelashes, I am wearing a peplum top which I swore I would never do.  This pattern called to me though and I couldn't stop my hand from adding the top to my shopping cart.  Thankfully, the top isn't too froo froo nor makes my waist look wider than it already is (HELLO POST PARTUM BABY WEIGHT THAT WON'T GO AWAY!)



And here is the precious reason why our morning got thrown into a loop...someone decided to wake up an hour before she usually does.  I didn't mind the extra cuddles though.  Not. One. Bit.

Back to Work After Maternity Leave

Well, folks.  Maternity leave is over and it's back to reality or to a new normal that I haven't quite figured out yet.  I thought for sure I would never make it to work on time but somehow I only managed to be a few minutes late and not totally looking ratchet.  

For some reason, I thought that going back to work after my second child would be easier but it wasn't.  Not the least bit.  I shed lots of tears out of working mommy guilt because I now know what to expect which is spending less time with my child.  However, and trust me, I've only come to realize this after lots of tears, I'm a better mom because I work.  Everyone has to make the right decision for their own family and, for us, this feels right for the moment.  Thankfully, I had a great first week back at the office and I know Olivia is in great hands while I work.  It will take some adjusting to but soon we will all fall into a routine and all will be right in the world.

Girly Dress


I remember much of my pregnancy with Lucas was spent in dresses and rarely in pants.  This time around, I rarely have worn dresses and have opted for flowy tunics and leggings.  This dress is probably one of three maternity items I purchased this entire pregnancy and I love it!  It's not something that I can wear every week but I had to buy it when I saw that Old Navy also made a baby girl romper in the same print.  Yep, I'm going to be that mom that wears a matching outfit with my daughter and I couldn't be more thrilled...her...probably not so much!

Hey, Baby!


No big deal.  Just looks like I swallowed a watermelon but no big deal, nothing weird looking here.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I feel so much bigger carrying baby girl.  Getting dressed for work is getting more and more interesting but I just have to chuckle since it looks like I'm smuggling a basketball into the office!

Life Lately: Little Sister's Nashville Wedding

Long time no see!  It's been quite a few weeks and I'll try to catch up as I start blogging regularly again.  Throughout the past couple weeks, I've been on and off bed rest due to ongoing Braxton Hicks contractions.  I'm still working full-time, so I've been balancing taking care of my body, working, Lucas, life, etc. so unfortunately, blogging went to the bottom of the totem pole.  We also just got back from Nashville for my sister's wedding which are the photos I'm sharing below.

My sister got married at the Nashville Symphony which was an absolutely beautiful venue!  I was maid of honor and little Lucas was a ring bearer.  His bow tie, suspenders, and Chucks outfit was too too cute!  Shockingly, not only did Lucas walk down the aisle but he was the perfect angel throughout the ceremony and sat quietly on my sister, Ana's lap.  I didn't want to jinx it so I tried not to make eye contact with him!

We had such a great time spending time with family and celebrating Melisa and Jeremy.  It was also special to spend Mother's Day in Nashville with all of my family.

Lucas sitting quietly as the girls got their hair and makeup done.  Can you tell that I emphasize when he's quiet?  He's definitely a firecracker!

I mean...I mean...


 Lucas was in heaven with his Aunties!

Mom, sisters, and I

FYI Finding a maid of honor dress to wear at 7 months pregnant was no easy task but I went with this similar J.Crew dress and had it altered like no other.

The happy married couple.


This was such a sweet gift from my sister!  She and I love this Burberry perfume and she had it engraved which makes it extra special :-)

Struggling



For most of this pregnancy, I haven't worn any maternity tops and have been living in tunics.  Clearly, this poor chambray top is struggling to stay buttoned!  Luckily, no buttons were harmed in the making of this post.

Weekend Photo Diary

Weekend Errands Outfit
Sweater: Nordstrom (LOVE!)  /  Shirt: J.Crew Factory  /  Pants: Nordstrom  /  Shoes: Nike  /  Bag: Tory Burch

We had a nice and relaxed weekend running errands, catching up on orders for The Dainty Planner, and had a nice little BBQ with family.  I rarely dress up on the weekends since I have to dress up during the work week so I prefer comfy on those days I'm not at the office.  I just recently started having the decency for humankind to at least put on mascara and concealer on the weekends just in case I ever run into clients while out and about. 
  
While in Sephora, I repurchased a favorite hair product of mine - Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun.  When I first bought this, I wasn't sure how to use it but I found that it was THE PERFECT DRY SHAMPOO (yes, that required all caps).  I just hate the price.  I find myself wanting to use it every day but, ugh, the price.  If anyone else knows of a good alternative, I'm all ears.  Until now, this is one of my favorite hair products.  I also kept on decorating for the holidays which puts me in the best mood.  Lucas helped and by helped I mean he kept taking down to play with the sweetest Fisher Price Nativity Set we bought last year.  I also bought the cutest Santa pillow from Kirklands.  I am so so excited to put up our tree this weekend and for a short work week!  Happy Monday indeed!

It's a very busy time for me and unfortunately, all I have time for in the morning is the crappy morning mirror pics.  The fact that I'm leaving the house when it's still dark outside is criminal.  Oy vey.

Still Going

Proof.  I'm still running out the door, sometimes with wet hair, mostly in messy ponytails and not the messy cool ponytails.  Why would I post such a disheveled picture on my blog?  Because I'm working on little sleep and who knows of anything lately.  The end of the year is one of the busiest times at work and I'm definitely feeling and looking like it...

Turns out, it is really hard to photograph a white sweater in the bright a$$ Florida sunlight.  Huh, imagine that.

In A Blue State of Mind


It has been crazy town lately and sometimes I feel like life is going by so quickly.  I need to remember to slow down.  Work has been incredibly busy and with Lucas starting school, it makes me realize how quickly time flies.  So I have had the blues lately and I'm hoping to snap on out of it.  I need to remember the important things in life and not so much the things that stress me out.  Easier said than done though.  If I'm going to have the blues, might as well make the best of it and do my best in coordinating with my work outfits!

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...

Long Button Down


Lately, I have been allllll about tunics and oversized shirts.  I like to dress them up, dress them down, and basically live in them.  At least a couple days a week, I do have to dress more conservatively due to meetings, hearings, etc. so I love this J.Crew Endless shirt.  I normally wouldn't post a side-view shot because, umm hello, but I wanted to show how long it is.  It's like a button up tunic which is the best of both worlds for me.  Anything I can do to still look professional and be comfortable at the same time is right up my alley.
