Night Out In Scalloped Espadrilles

That's right.  This girl went out..at night!  Over the weekend, my husband and I had a date night with some friends of ours which is always a great time seen as though these nights don't come easily with our busy schedules and kiddos.  I love our few date nights and getting to get dressed up somewhere else beside work!  And I have to sing the praises of these super comfortable espadrilles and...they're scalloped...and they're on sale...I mean...

Working Mom


Today, I am suppose to work from home but unfortunately an emergency hearing came up so I'm up early to prep and drive to the courthouse.  This is a new me that prefers to be at home.  Of course, being home means being with my baby but before Lucas, I did not like staying home during the day.  My husband used to ask me if I won the lottery would I quit my job and stay at home.  I staunchly would reply that I would never quit my job and that I had worked too hard to fulfill my lifelong dream of being an attorney.  Well, fast forward to the absolute happiness of taking care of my baby and now, I can honestly say that if I won the lottery, I would choose to only work two days.  I really do love my job so I don't think I could ever say that I would completely quit.  Plus, I don't play the lottery.  I think working and being a mom are going to take some time to get used to but, right now, life is good.  Going to the gym will have to wait ;-)

Chevron Zags


My sweet and hilarious Titi Isabelita (titi is spanish for "Aunt") bought me maternity tops in December and I'm finally able to fit into them which makes me very happy!  I initially only purchased maternity bottoms and a couple of dresses but neglected to buy tops.  Until now, I've been able to fit into my regular tops but lately I've really been testing the seams.  I'm fully embracing my new maternity tops and the flexibility and ease they bring to my everyday attire!

Candy Colored Stripes

 

Happy April Fools Day!  If you played a great joke on someone today, please let me know in the comments!  I need ideas for next year ;-)

Can you tell I'm just thrilled that it's Monday?  These were taken last week when it was super crazy busy at the office.  I've been up and down on my feet all day that, sadly, my heels days might be over soon but just until the baby is born.  I'll still save my heels for court days because it would feel odd to me to wear flats in court but that's just me.  Any recommendations for cute work/court appropriate flats?

Office Bump


The days here are getting nicer but, unfortunately, the combination of pollen and just sickiness has me feeling gloom.  Luckily, I'm able to work from home at times but I'm one of those weirdos that actually prefers to get work done at the office.  I'm trying to rest up though because it is so nice out and I'd like to do as much as I can now before the baby comes.  I find myself opening the door to the nursery and spending a couple minutes in his room wondering what it will be like when Lucas is here ;-)

Oh and a big thank you to those of you that helped me figure out how to block out spammers.

Out of Element

Shirt: Old Navy  /  Shirt: Forever 21  /  Pants: Gap Maternity  /  Shoes: DSW  /  Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

This past Saturday, my husband, mom, and I ventured out to Buy Buy Baby.  That store is crazy!  It's literally a Bed Bath and Beyond but just baby stuff.  I was so overwhelmed and out of my element.  I've never been very good at buying anything for children and even worse buying things for boys.  I had fun looking at the little toys and clothes but when I realized how many things a baby actually needs, my mind got scrambled.  Just being honest :-/  I realized that I need to do more research but thankfully I've got some time.

Bows, Bows, Bows


When I think of yellow and black together, I think of a bumblebee and not in a good way.  Yet, I always gravitate between pairing the two colors together and it isn't until I've been in the outfit for a whole workday that I think, "man, I look like a bumblebee."  Maybe I'll remember to pair yellow with something different and that's a big maybe seen as though these days I've been shampooing my hair three times in a row because I forget whether or not I've washed it or not.  Oy vey...

Holiday Kilt


 First, I want to thank you ladies for the extremely kind and sweet comments!  I am forever in awe of how amazing you are and for your kindness that I wish I could thank you in person.

Second, I wore this to my mom's holiday party.  My mom posted a picture of the two of us online and, instantly, I received a text from my sister asking "ummm, why are you wearing a kilt?"  Sisters...they bring you back down to earth ;-)

New Norm


I'm so behind on reading all of your amazing blogs!  Every day I think as soon as I get home, I'm going to catch up on my reader.  It's one of my favorite things to do when I get home to unwind.  However, the new norm has been to get home from work, change in my pjs, and LITERALLY go to sleep.  Like 7 p.m ish sleep...then I wake up at 4 a.m and toss and turn until it's time to go to work again.  I'm told that the 2nd trimester gets better so I'm looking forward to feeling like myself again.  I know it sounds selfish to complain.  I really am grateful and excited for my little one to arrive in a couple months. This is just the tired nauseous Maria typing talking :-)

Playing it Safe


Nothing too interesting going on with this except that it was comfortable but that's not too interesting either.  Have I stressed enough that I prefer comfortable over anything?  In fact, as soon as I get to my office in the morning, I immediately remove my watch and bracelets.  Some may ask what the point of even wearing them in the first place may be.  Habit, I guess.  I just prefer to be the most comfortable as I can be if I have to be at work all day.  I'm being honest here people...I'll show the good and not so great :-)

Camo Houndstooth


My husband and I have been working a little later than usual so by the time we get home it's dark outside.  We aren't picture taking savvy enough to know how to take night time photos so pictures in the early morning it is for now.
I look thrilled and so much like a morning person, right? :-)
I purposefully bought this dress a size bigger so that I could grow into it the next couple of months.  I was drawn to the pattern which is a mix of camo and houndstooth I think.  I'm definitely becoming more and more a dress person because they are easy and comfortable.

Walk Like an Egyptian


So this is going to be the weirdest and most will think vain post ever but here goes.  Although these are pictures of what I wore to work, my post today is about my amazing co-worker, Mary, who now lives in Cairo.  Yeah, so the pictures having nothing to do with my post except it's what I wore to work and Mary used to work at my office...

Anyhow, when I moved back home to work at my firm, as soon as I walked through the doors, Mary and I clicked immediately.  We share the same sense of humor, tv shows, everything.  Soon, other co-workers joined our now little family which made going to work enjoyable.  After working together for two years, Mary, was accepted to graduate school in Egypt.  It was such an amazing opportunity but, selfishly, I was sad to see her go.  Thankfully, Mary has been blogging about her experiences as a way to help other students or foreigners looking to visit Egypt.  I've learned so much about Egypt through reading her blog and definitely hope to visit Egypt in my lifetime.

If you're interested, I highly encourage you to check out her blog Mary in Cairo.

Foggy Grays


Although I like how snuggly (isn't that a great way to describe an outfit?) this outfit was, I think I'll skip the boots next time.  I don't own a pair of gray shoes (oh how this will change soon) so I didn't know what to pair this with.  Anyone have any suggestions for shoes to wear with a gray palette?

Fancy Pants


Holy moly, it's my favorite day of the week!  I truly love Friday evenings more than any other time of the week.  We're planning on going to Oktoberfest tonight and, of course, watching the Florida vs. South Carolina game on Saturday.  ESPN Gameday will be here so I hope we're able to go watch :-)

Greener Side


I am such a happy girl.  Not only do I have a couple big cases behind me, there's only one more day left before the weekend.  I don't talk about work much but, most times, I let cases take over me so when they wrap up, I look forward to little things like laying around in my pjs having nothing to do.  I'm definitely working on not letting things get to me and trying to get my mind off of work when I get home.  So in honor of my strive to let things go, I have a nice pair of pjs and cozy socks waiting for me when I get home today :-)
