Completely Pantsless



Well, not really but I'm so pale that the pants clearly make it look like I decided it was appropriate to go pantsless at the office.  I am in dire need of some sun and pronto!

That Time I Didn't Have My Sh*t Together


So I went to work in this get up...a sweater AND necklace put on backwards.  Did anyone tell me?  Nope.  I realized it when I was going through these photos that night.  It was a long 9+ workday too.  Thanks everyone.

Most days I feel like I'm just trying to function.  Just trying to keep all the balls I'm juggling in the air.  From far away, it may seem like someone has their sh*t together, and I begin to doubt if I'm just doing it all wrong.  But up close, it's a backwards sweater and necklace, so maybe we aren't all perfect and it's going to be ok.  How's that for deep on this lovely Monday ;-)

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.

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!

Trust Me


It's best that neck up not be shown.  I may or may not have gone to work with wet hair...it was one of those mornings.  Luckily, I did not have any meetings and it was just a day working at my desk.  I'm patiently waiting for someone to invent a machine where I can step in two minutes before I need to head out the door and it will dress me and do my hair and makeup.  One day.

Outfits That Didn't Make It


Here's how this conversation went:

Me: [to husband] Can you take my picture?
Him: You want it for your blog?
Me: Yes.  Why do I look like crap?  Because I'm real.  This is how I really dress. [clearly, I'm not dramatic.]
Him: I mean okay.

Since I assumed my photographer was not inspired, I took pics with my iphone instead.  Note to self, must get new mirror and keep little toddler boy hands off of it.  

The picture below shows one of my birthday gifts from my husband!  It's a Tory Burch bag that doubles as a diaper bag since it's nylon fabric.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  Although I also love my Marc by Marc Jacobs diaper bag, since my baby boy is now a toddler, I don't have much of a need to always have all of the things.  However, I still carry with me diapers, wipes, snacks, drinks, and toys so I wanted something that was nice enough to wear on its own and also carry my toddler necessities.  Tis love!

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.

The Happy Birthday Girl



I could have picked another picture to post up there but nope!  I want to show you in all my glory how thrilled I was to turn 32 yesterday and have to work all day on my birthday.  #keepingitreal #allgrownup   

Despite turning into an old lady and having to go to work, I actually had a pretty great day.  I think I was eating the whole day because as soon as I got into my office, my wonderful co-worker had fully stocked my drawers with tons of candy, cannolis, and cupcakes.  For dinner, my mom cooked my favorite meal and funfetti cake which is the bestest cake in all of the land.  Then the eating didn't stop when I got home because my sweet hubby gifted me with chocolate covered fruit.  I was spoiled with lots of gifts and love from friends and family and Lucas even told his daddy to get me a new handbag.  He is such a sweet boy.  Soooo, turning 32, was not so bad of a day.

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.

The Era of the Shopping Blogger


Nothing much to see here: just a cardigan and a dress.  Trying to keep up with blogging though, I thought, well, I got dressed today so why not take pictures?  Reading this post on Franish made me think of fashion blogging and where it is today.  When I first started reading fashion blogs, I was starting out my career and most all of the blogs that I read and were popular are not really what's popular today.  I'm not saying that it's a bad thing the way fashion blogging has progressed - it's just different.  I feel like today it's all about shopping, shopping, shopping, expensive, expensive, expensive.  Now, I'm a girl that loves to shop and likes nice things but I still think it's attainable.  For example, I have, what I consider, a nice handbag collection but I can tell you that it took years to collect and lots of hours at the office working on a nice bonus so I could treat myself.  I can look at a handbag and think of a fond memory that is usually attached to the purchase (i.e. honeymoon, first big settlement, first paycheck, etc).  

As much as I'd like to be a high fashion blogger, truth be told, I'm probably wearing something I purchased years ago, and there's probably throw up/milk/cheetos/syrup/etc stains on my clothes but I'm okay with that.  I hope you are too.

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.

His and Her Watches: Jord Wood Watches

Shirt: Lucky Brand  /  Jeans: American Eagle {Similar} /  Shoes: Tory Burch  /  Necklace: Kendra Scott              Bag: Old Navy  /  Bracelet: David Yurman  /  Sunnies: Polette c/o  /  Watch: Jord Wood Watches c/o

I have a fun post today to introduce (if you don't already own one) a fun and unique timepiece.  Jord Wood Watches are just that - watches made out of wood!  I cannot get over how cool these watches are.  I tried to think of a better word than cool but sometimes, things are just that cool.  But honestly, Jord Wood Watches are beautiful and something I don't see every day which makes them that unique to me.  Jord has a wide selection of different wood finishes and styles so it was hard to narrow my selection down to one.  I chose the Ely Series in the Cherry color and could not be more happy with my choice.

The website boasts that Jord Wood Watches are sustainable, efficient, and influenced by experiential living.  It is truly a beautiful watch!  Each watch is custom cut to fit your wrist and for the week of June 5- June 12, 2015, Jord is offering free sizing with code DANDD4119845.

My husband even got to partake in the fun!  You'll see in the pictures below a mens version of a Jord Wood Watch.  He's wearing the Sully Series in the Black and Maple color. My husband loves watches and he gave this one two thumbs up.  These would make great father's day gifts!  






My husband was so excited to see his watch!  He told that the he and his co-workers had a conversation during the holidays about how wood watches would make such a great and unique gift to give to someone.  True story!  He was very pleased with the fit and construction.  He also said that it has been a fun conversation piece.

If You Like Pina Coladas...


and wearing bright neon at work...The "work uniform" for my profession can be pretty standard: suit and collared shirt.  I happen to loathe structured suits and collared shirts.  I find them to be too stiff and when I'm looking at a 9+ hour workday, the last thing I want to wear that long is a stiff suit.  

I was talking to a friend of mine in the same legal profession about how I hate collared shirts.  She asked me if I owned any Express Portofino Shirts.  I had not and, apparently, I've been missing out.  She promised that they weren't stiff and that the shirts were comfortable to wear for a long period of time and she was right!  I, of course, found the brightest most obnoxious (in a good way) pattern but I love how soft the fabric is.  I couldn't help myself with the pineapple pattern in bright pink!  

I must admit that this shirt was tucked in during the day but when I snapped these I, obviously, forgot to tuck my shirt back in.  So work uniforms don't have to be uncomfortable and can exist in pineapple print.  WIN WIN!

The Day My Toddler Threw Up All Over Me


This "the day my toddler..." could become a weekly series it seems like.  Hopefully, not since they usually involve me in a panic.

I've always been on the hunt for a cargo type blazer that I could wear to the office.  I squealed when I saw this jacket pop up online at Loft and decided to order up for a looser fit.  I'm glad I did because after I picked up Lucas after work and walked through the front door carrying him on my hip, he projectile vomited all over my jacket and shirt.  Yep.  So after a wash, the jacket shrunk a little bit but I still like the fit.  See, Lucas was just watching out for you guys so you know prior to purchasing how the jacket holds up in the wash!  Sweet boy.  

FYI, he's feeling much better ;-)

Shoe Shopping: Tory Burch Caroline Flats


Ahhh, shoe shopping again has been wondrous.  'Wondrous' is a word.  Look it up.  Anyshoes, this former non-shoe lover is currently loving getting to rebuild my shoe collection.  During the last couple months of my pregnancy, I wore the bejesus out of my Tory Burch Revas.  They were the only shoes that fit at the time so I know that I will get a lot of use out of my new Tory Burch Caroline Elastic Trim Ballerina Flats.  These are by no means shoes new to the Tory Burch collection but I read mixed reviews and wanted to put out there for anyone interested in these that they are hella comfy!  I find them to be true to size and dare I say more comfortable than my Revas.  The back of the shoe hits at a weird spot on my ankle but I'm sure the patent and elastic just need to be broken in like my other flats.  I'd love to hear anyone's suggestion for breaking in shoes.
