Pink and Leopard

Rynetta recently posted a magenta, camel, and leopard print outfit on her Instagram account and I just loved the color combo so much.  This top has a peplum back detail that makes it very flowy and forgiving...which, I mean, is a must ;-)  I'm actually typing this post out in my car waiting for preschool doors to open so I apologize for the brevity!

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.

The White Pants


This here is a first for me...white pants.  White pants while pregnant no less.  I can't lie, throughout the entire day, I would examine my pants to see if I smeared ink...or cheetos...but, thankfully, these survived an entire day at the office.  And I have to say, I'm a fan!  I practically live in blank or dark gray work pants so this was a nice departure.  Maybe I'll even brave some white jeans #goals

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.

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!

Holiday Blues


Oh it was hard getting up to go to work today.  After almost a week off for the holidays, it's depressing when it's over and real life begins again.  We had a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday this year with my whole family.  My sisters, who all live out of state, came home and Lucas was in Auntie heaven.  I got most of my holiday shopping done which is awesome!  I may even have snagged the Tory Burch bag I had on my wish list during the Tory Burch sale and by "may" I mean I definitely did!  It will be the perfect work bag.  I can't believe we are already in December!

Red Shirted


Those shades are hiding a seriously exhausted walking zombie.  For reals.  Not only has work been crazy, Lucas has been sick, and my hubby and I have been working on a project together that I hope to share here soon.  No, it's not a baby :-)  It's not super secretive what we've been working on but I want to make a proper post for it and I hope to get the post up soon.  Before then, I should probably wash my hair, sleep, eat, be human, or something like that before I get on the computer again.  Hope you all are having a great week!

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.

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 :-)

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!

Oldie But A Goodie


I've had this Anthropologie sweater in my closet for a couple years now and I remember thinking at the time, "is it me?"  But at the same time, I couldn't not buy it.  That's when I know I really want something, if I absolutely positively must have it.  It's been awhile since I've felt that way about a piece of clothing.  Lately, I've been craving furniture and/or some sort of home decor which tells me one thing...I'm old.

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!

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.

Swing Swing Swing


I'd be lying if I said swing dresses weren't my favorite silhouette in the whole wide world.  It may not be the most flattering because it has the tendency to make one look wider but the comfort is one that cannot be beat.  I purchased this swing dress as well (in black and white striped) a while back and have yet to wear it but look forward to it.  I'm also wearing one of my favorite new necklaces from Onecklace.  I adore it and if you love monograms as well, check out the site and score 10% off your purchase with Onecklace promo code maria10!

Because It's Easy


I just love how easy the dress + cardigan formula is.  Whenever I'm running late, a dress and a cardigan is my go to even if it's kind of boring.  I try to throw in a necklace or some sort of accessory to make things interesting.  Even if it gets tangled like mine clearly is in these photos, I think accessories are great completer pieces.

I'm Not Perfect


It's been quite the week.  Quite the week.  I recently, like within the week recently, got into the whole planner craze.  I ordered my Erin Condren planner in July and it arrived a week or two ago.  I ordered tons of stickers and really plan (ha) on making this work.  The biggest anxiety I get is not getting things done accordingly, not having enough hours in the day, and, Lucas, of course.  I'm constantly asking myself how others seem to have it all or else appear like they have it all.  I'm pretty hard on myself for being a full time working mom and I know the song and dance can seem like I'm always talking about the struggle of being a full time working mom but it really is no joke.  I would prefer to be with my son 24/7 so if I'm at work or away from him, it better be worth it.  For right now, it's the best decision for our family for me to continue working plus, I like what I do.  The whole point of this rant and these pictures is that most days, I'm just running out the door barely catching my breath.  So my hair isn't perfectly straight, my room isn't tidy, and an oversized shirt is enough to make me feel put together.  And for some reason, I think it's appropriate to post these and my random thoughts on the internet because, heck (yes, heck) it's okay to be imperfect. 

I literally just thought dumped this post...please tell me this is normal ;-)

She Was A Showgirl


I don't know what happened but somewhere along the line, I became afraid of wearing color to work.  Looking back in my archives, I was not shy before even though some of those old posts have gots to go.  I've always been a lover of wearing black everything but definitely need to change it up.  I think the color black as my safety and feel like if I wear too much color that it's "showy" but I really love this skirt and how bright it is!  I'm still loving these blue sunnies too and want to maybe get the pink version!

Tale of A 32 Year Old Shopping at Forever 21


Once upon a time, there was a 32 year old woman (let's call her "Naria") and she was reading Tara's Bargain Saturday blog post one day wherein she linked the most exquisite top.  Naria said "I need it."  Naria clicked on the link to the much wanted/needed top and the 32 year old Naria found herself being taken to the Forever 21 website.  Ok, I can't keep this story up but yes, at 32 years old I longed for a Forever 21 top.  Now, college even law school me rocked Forever 21 like nobody's business but I haven't shopped there in forever 21 (see what I did there) but I had to do it.  I had to have it.  Plus, Tara liked it and Tara's awesome!  I opened my package, tried it on, and luuurrrvvveed it.  Lurve, people.  And at like $15, my wallet and husband loves it even more!

Blue Eyed Girl


I talked about these sunnies last week and I'm still smitten with them.  I'm also smitten with these shoes that I purchased at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  I love them so much that I also purchased the same ones but in black.  Confession time: I have never shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  FOR REALS!  We stopped on the way to the beach and on the way back home to Nordstrom and OH EMMM GEEE!  For all the spending I haven't been doing, I more than made up for up.  I just couldn't flipping help myself and now I get the hype.  I, like most everyone else, had my blog reader inundated with Nordstrom Anniversary posts and I couldn't help but just scroll past them.  After seeing this sale in person, I get it.  I get it.  I like a good deal and a good deal was had.  I still have some exchanges to make since I was sort of rushing but I just love everything I got!  Let me know what goodies you scored during the sale!

Work After Vacation


Going back to work after being off for a week was hard.  I really love my job but the work that built up has been cray-to-the-cray.  I have not had a week off from work since my honeymoon.  I worked during my maternity leave with Lucas so it wasn't really time off from work.  Anywho, I opted to dress comfortably last week since I knew I was going to be tied down to my chair for awhile.  But am I the only weirdo masochist that likes to be super busy at work?
