The Comfiest Tee Ever

Happy New Year!  Yes, It's late January and this is still my first post of the year.  My little baby girl just turned 6 months old yesterday but I am still trying to get into the swing of things.  Just when I thought I could devote more time to blogging, work started getting even busier and adding that with a three year old boy, 6 month old, Etsy store business, and who knows what else, life has been cray.  I so miss blogging though so I hope to make this a more regular thing.

Although I haven't really shopped for myself lately, one day my neighbor sent me a message that she had just bought every single color in this top and that I just had to get one!  I don't typically buy v-necks but it was on sale so I thought it could be a nice weekend top.  Not only have I dressed this down for the weekend, I made it work for the office as well and I luuuurrrrvvveee it!  Seriously, comfy comfy comfy!

Floral Peplum Top

Don't mind the headless pictures...it's just better this way...#insomnia

And suddenly we're days away from Christmas.  I, of course, will have to finish shopping during my lunch breaks this year because life.  Oh and I also have not sent out our Christmas cards.  Frankly, I'm surprised that I even remembered to order them this year.  One day, I will have my sh*t together but today is just not that day.  

I'm still loving this floral peplum top that I bought earlier in the summer.  Although, I can't find it online, I linked a similar top below!

The Trumpet Sleeve

I thought long about this purchase.  To trumpet sleeve or not to bell sleeve.  Typically, if I have to think about buying something this way, I usually end up not purchasing it because it isn't something that I just have to have or, of course, need.  In this case, I thought, it's pretty and I literally have nothing like it so why not?  I have to say, the color is pretty and it was a nice change from my usual tunics and/or striped top.  I'm trying to branch out more and out of my box/rut and although I'm by no means a risk taker when it comes to fashion, it's baby steps towards a more rounded wardrobe for me.

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.

What I Wore to Work Work Work Work Work

Ooof, it's getting harder and harder to wake up early in the morning and even more difficult to move even a finger but I'm in the homestretch and can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I've been scarily and dangerously risking a wardrobe malfunction by wearing non maternity tops to work but I think my time to get away with it is way way over so I'll probably be repeating outfits.  Here are a few outfits I wore to work recently that tested gravity...

The Green Bag


I'm a bag lady, a proud bag lady.  Always have been, always will be.  My obsession with bags started when I was very young.  I vividly remember being in elementary school and falling in love with my grandmother's Chanel bag.  I had no idea what brands meant just that I thought her bag was really really pretty and I wanted one.  My dream of owning a Chanel finally came true when I bought my Large Flap bag in Paris while on my honeymoon but my love of bags is a forever thing.  Since beginning my career and becoming a mommy, all of my handbag purchases have been with the thought of whether this or that bag would make a great diaper bag or work bag.  I have not made any "fun" bag purchases in forever.  Until now.  When I saw this Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (NOW ON SALE!!!!!!!!) in the teal color, 'twas love.  I REALLY wanted it.  I promised myself awhile back that I would not buy anything unless it was needed or I REALLY wanted it and I REALLY wanted this bag.  My husband sweetly gifted me the bag for Mother's Day and I couldn't wait to use!  I took it with us to Nashville and amazingly, it doubled as the perfect toddler bag.  I no longer have to bring an entire nursery with me on the go, so I carried essentials with me along with Lucas' tablet, a few toys, snacks, and sippy cup.  I seriously love this bag and the color is gorgeous!  I think the color is called Sea Green but it's more teal/turquoise in real life.  If you are looking for a fun yet functional bag, I highly recommend this one!

Take On An Old Non-Maternity Outfit


I'm over the half way point on what seems like the fastest pregnancy ever and still finding ways to change up my style while embracing my large preggo belly.  I bought this swing dress from Old Navy last summer and it's not maternity.  It's meant to be, well, swingy, so it's perfect and comfortable to wear while pregnant in the Florida heat.  I wore a very similar outfit to this here and I really liked the color combo so I'm happy to have translated it into a maternity outfit.

Transitioning Non-Maternity Clothes


It helps that this top that I bought last year at Nordstrom was already pretty big to begin with because it has been great in adding to what I can wear during this pregnancy.  I haven't bought many maternity items this time around but believe you me, my belly is huge this time around.  I'm finding that tunics have been great to wear and purchase recently because they are pieces that I can also wear post-pregnancy.  Maternity bottoms had to be purchased because, at least for me, there was no way around that.  I don't mind those purchases though since I work 5 loooong days a week and constantly reuse (of course wash!) them throughout the week.  Dresses are also a great way to wear during pregnancy that don't necessarily have to be maternity.  I am by no means against maternity clothes but it's also important for me to be cost efficient and find pieces that I can also wear after birth.  I do have to say though that maternity fashion has come a long way and there's so many cute options now!

PS: Here's this exact outfit worn last year and not pregnant: Non- Maternity Version

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.

Maternity Work Wear



As much as I'd like to wear leggings and a baggy t-shirt all day every day, this pesky thing called going to work at an office gets in my way.  I was so sick during the first couple of months with this babe that I literally just wanted to stay in bed all day in my comfy clothes.  Now that I'm feeling more like myself, it does make a big difference to put some makeup and a dress on in the mornings.  Plus, if I get told one more time that I don't look well (which has happened one too many times lately) I might just go buck-wild.

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...

It's Been Awhile


Bad blogger bad bad bad blogger!  It's been a week...it's been awhile...but I'm slowly catching up with life.  It's been crazy busy and, frankly, I'm surprised I brushed my hair in these pictures so of course I needed photographic evidence.  On the plus side, I can't believe that we are already in my favorite month, October.  The year is literally flying by!

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!

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!

Lady in Red


So Lucas' first day of school went well, thankfully.  His report from his teachers was that he was happy, playful, curious, and ate all of his snacks (duh).  When we got him and he was running about, I could hear him humming a song.  I know that they sang lots of songs that day and that little hum made me feel a little better about him going to school.  He's learning, playing with other children, and hopefully, learning to be independent.  Ugh, silver lining right?  I hope this gets easier :-/

Swingy Tops


I certainly never dress for the weather because I literally melted in this outfit.  Melted.  But it's okay because as soon as I sat at my desk, I froze.  Froze as in freezing.  I know I talk about the weather a lot but it literally occupies a lot of time in my head.  It's so flipping hot so swingy sleeveless tops are now my jam.  I want a million of them and then more.  I spotted some more sleeveless tops at Target over the weekend so I may buy every single color and convince myself that tank tops are office appropriate because I'm not totally convinced yet.  Riveting stuff here.  It's the heat.  The heat is making me cray...and boring.

Running Late


What happens when my alarm clock (aka Lucas) decides to sleep in and doesn't give me my screaming wake up call?  I end up wearing slouchy clothes, very minimal makeup, and what somewhat resembles a ponytail.  Oh, and since I was already late, I obviously decided to take pictures to blog about it of course.  You cannot pay me enough to take these sunglasses off.  Trust that I am doing you a favor.

My Standards


Looking back on my outfits lately, I very much seem to have a standard go to: pants, shirt, and cardigan.  Although I prefer dresses, I, unknowingly, am in another style rut.  I appreciate others than can change it up and be comfortable.  My standard comfort zone, is just that, something comfortable.  I've said it over and over again but I will always choose comfort over style and my agenda is to try to make my comfort more stylish.  I am a firm believe that if you feel you look your best, your attitude will be better and thus more productive.  Just my two cents for the day.

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?

Office Casuals


It's not denim.  It's chambray and, therefore, okay for the office, right?  Admittedly, I wore this on Friday so if someone did say something (not that anyone would) I could say it's chambray!  I own way too many chambray shirts for my own good and I'm mulling over owning these chambray pants.  I'm trying to decide if they are too 80s or toddler looking pants.  I guess I'll have to go in stores to try them on but these days I can't find myself physically going shopping anymore.  First world problems, you see.
