Flowers in October


How is it already October?  No complaints because it's my favorite time of the year but mere shock that it's already late in the year.  It's still blazing hot and last week when temps dipped into the low 70s, I literally saw people wearing scarves around town...SCARVES! Nope.

Retro


There's something about black and white polka dots and pearls that feels retro housewife to me.  I felt a little like I Love Lucy and in a great way.  Tell me I wasn't the only kid that watched I Love Lucy reruns on Nick at Nite?  I love the fit and ease of shirtdresses and I always forget this when thinking about making a clothing purchase.  I've been good all summer and not made very many clothing purchases for myself.  We are currently having our first home built and I'm saving up for all those lovely closing costs.  However, I do have my eye on a few items that I hope to share in a post soon!

I've Got Sunshine


I've been on the hunt for tortoise pattern shoes for awhile but I either didn't want to spend a lot or didn't like the fit.  Imaging my surprise when I spotted these online at Target and on sale!  Now, these are probably not going to last awhile but it will hold me over until I decide to spend more.  I think I paid something like $10?!  I'm now on the hunt for beige pointy bow flats since my beloved Me Too Patty flats are too small :-(  Darn pregnancy hormones...

Bien Fait


Yesterday was my 4 year wedding anniversary.  We celebrated by going out to dinner after Lucas went to bed and after playing with him for awhile, I didn't realize that I made myself a wrinkled up mess.  Oh well.  One of the gifts that my husband and I exchanged with each other was a weekend family getaway to a Disney resort and I could not be more excited.  Not only have I not had a vacation/getaway in forever but I've been dying to take Lucas to Disney!  Although, we won't be visiting any parks (waaaayyyy too hot and crowded in the summer), we picked a resort that was baby friendly and we also plan on going to a character dining restaurant for dinner.  I've always loved Disney World and can't wait to experience it with my child.  Plus, this skin could use some Vitamin C ifyaknowwhatImean...

Summer Florals


Lately, I've been loving bright, fun colors and patterns.  Seen as though this time last year I was wearing the same black dress because it was the only thing that fit my massive preggo belly, colors and variety is such a nice change.  J.Crew Factory has really hit it out of the park this season and I love that I'm able to find prints I didn't get the chance to purchase at J.Crew.  I'm sort of on a shopping hiatus since I'm saving up for furniture at the new house but that doesn't mean that I can't dream shop and if I accidentally hit the checkout button and oops I get a confirmation email with my order, that's okay too ;-)

Crimson and Leopard


I'm not going to lie, I look like a goober in the top picture.  I look like a little kid on their first day of kindergarten and mom's wanting to take a picture of them in their new outfit.  I have not mastered the art of taking outfit pictures yet and after two years of blogging, I'm not sure I will.  Now, you're probably wondering why I would post this picture if I'm obviously not crazy about it.  Well, I really love blogging and I made a resolution to keep up with it this year.  I love connecting with other bloggers and readers and getting inspiration from you all.  We don't have a lot of time in the mornings so it's slim pickings when I go back and look at the pictures on my camera.  If anyone has any tips on being more photogenic, I'm all ears!  Have a great weekend!

Plaid Stripes Mix


Oof, it had been a couple of dreary gray days last week and I'm amazed I didn't show up in the office in my pjs, makeup however was questionable.  I'm trying to get my morning routine on point but Mr. Lucas has other plans.  I shouldn't complain in the slightest though because that boy likes to sleep!  He usually goes down anywhere from 8-8:30 p.m. and sleeps through the night until about 8 a.m.  However, when he wakes up he will let you know...he is quite the little talker.  So getting ready in the morning means getting up an hour and a half earlier so I can get everything ready.  I always say I'm going to get everything ready the night before but that never happens.

Blue Pop


And the hair is chopped!  My hair grows super fast and I'm not a fan of long hair upkeep so a cut was in order last weekend.  Lucas also picked up the habit of yanking my hair, thus, I now understand the term "mom hairdo" which is quite literally a boy short hair cut.  I can't pull off boy short hair though.  I've successfully dedicated an entire post on hair so I think end this rant now while I'm ahead ;-)

Five Months Old


Happy Three Kings Day!  So I'm way behind on Lucas' 5 month update!  Life has been fast lately and, I can't say it enough, time needs to slow down.  Lucas has grown into such a fun little personality!  He LOVES to smile and laugh so much that he gets hiccups and runs out of breath.  He's fitting snugly into 6-12 month clothing so he's pretty large and in charge.  He's really into playing and interacting with others so he's very much the center of our world right now.  The working mommy guilt is on high lately since he now realizes when he is getting dropped off in the mornings.  Plus, because I'm not emotional enough, my mom taught him to wave goodbye which makes me turn into mush as soon as I get in the car to drive away.  My mom also told me that when he started to cry a little during the day, she swears she heard him saying "mama, mama."  Tears, always tears.  Fingers crossed that I win a lottery or stumble upon an unclaimed lotto ticket because this working momma wants to be home.

Lunch Break


Who is this person and why isn't she dressed in her husband's gym clothes or pajamas?  Yep, I managed to wear real clothes and out of my husband's pajamas on Saturday and I felt incredibly guilty for it.  My mother-in-law watched Lucas for me and my husband on Saturday so that we could go out for lunch and basically get me out of the house.  It is ridiculous how emotional I get thinking about being apart from my baby.  I've only been away from him two times and for only an hour each time.  The first time I left the house, I cried.  And you would have thought I was going on vacation for how much I cried.  We literally went to eat ONE mile down from our home and at a restaurant that is in our neighborhood.  I cried nonetheless.  Don't even get me started on thinking about going back to work.  I cry at least once a day thinking about it.  Thankfully, I will be working from home one day  out of the week and my husband a different day then the days we're both at the office, my mom will be watching him.  I'm so blessed that my mom has offered to watch Lucas.  I know he will be in great hands and when he gets older, he'll be eating all her great Puerto Rican cooking that I grew up on.

Despite feeling guilty about going out to eat lunch, it eventually felt good to be outside and in real clothes.  Later this week, I made an appointment to use the spa gift card my husband gave me for our anniversary.  I'll be gone for two hours and will need to mentally prepare myself starting now.  I know...I'm going to the spa  not the dentist's office but not even the spa tops spending time with my little guy.  Motherhood is a crazy thing...an amazingly crazy thing.

Simply Leopard


Yes, the buttons on this sweater are holding on for dear life.  Just had to get that out there.

Lately, I've gained a sudden surge of energy that comes and goes but when it's present, watch out!  I'm wanting to clean all the windows, wash anything and everything that can go inside a washing machine, then five minutes later, I'm totally over it.  Wait thirty more minutes and I'm back at it.  I'm telling you, I'm a joy to be around.   This energy surge also helps me out in the mornings when I get the urge to wash, dry, and style my hair.  Okay, selfishly, I now have a morning hair routine just in case I go into labor at work.  That way I at least know my hair will be nice and clean.  C'mon, I can't be the only woman that wants to look half way decent when delivering a baby since all modesty is probably going to go out the window...right??

Simple Grays


Thank you for the birthday love!  30 is already shaping up to be a good year.  My mom and I have decided that this baby is coming way earlier than my mid July due date which my feet are thankful for.  They are so tired of the only two pairs of shoes that barely fit!

Linking up today with the lovely Tara of Mix and Match Fashion!

Neon on Weekends

 

This weekend I downloaded the What to Expect When Expecting app on my phone so I can check daily on what size the baby should be, etc.  My app says now that my baby is the size of a head of lettuce...yeah umm...by the looks of my belly, my kid is the size of all the lettuce at the supermarket.  It's going to be a long summer!  Happy Monday :-)

Navy Polka Dots and Stripes


I really wish that more mainstream stores had maternity options.  I spent a good portion of my day adjusting/pulling this top down since the fit is off now that my belly is in the way.  My necklace was also being quickly swallowed up by my ummmm ever growing chest (very new to me!)  I've been remixing and using the different maternity clothes that I have with pre-pregnancy clothes which seemed to work.  Now, tops are just not fitting as comfortably unless they are loose cotton or side ruching (basically maternity tops).  I may buy a couple maxi dresses for the summer but I'm done buying anything else maternity since I'm already pretty far along.  Any ladies and mommas out there have advice on comfort during the summer months while 8-9 months pregnant?

Happy Valentine's Day!  I wore this outfit on Sunday and thought how Valentinesy it looked then I remembered that Valentine's Day was today!  Oops, pregnancy brain.  So I'll be wearing this again since only like two people saw me on Sunday.  Does anyone else do that?  

Today is extra special because, fingers crossed, we find out the baby's gender at our appointment this morning!!!!!!!!  I'm so excited I can barely stand it!  I've been reading online how some women drink Mountain Dew or something really sugary to make sure the baby is alert during the appointment.  I'm going to play it safe with some orange juice and hope for the best.  I have a feeling it's going to be a boy but will be very happy either way!

Berry Lines


Excluding a dress I accidentally purchased from the maternity section this summer, this sweater is my very first maternity purchase.  Even though this sweater was in the Gap Maternity section, I don't really see what makes it "maternity."  It fits a little looser and longer so those are the only differences I see.  In regards to maternity clothes, I only want to buy essentials and maybe a shirt or two that doesn't fit the "essential" mold.  However, I work every day from 8:30-who knows when so I'm realizing that my idea of just buying three things may not be realistic.

We took these photos early morning Saturday and it was super foggy which is why the pictures are sort of blueish.  These were also the only non blurry pictures...photographer/husband fail!  We were on our way out to go car shopping which my husband says was his "push" present.  He CLEARLY does not understand the concept of who receives a "push" present :-)

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 :-)

Matching Couple


If you follow me on instagram, you probably already saw that my husband and I wore matching outfits.  It's something we like to do every once in awhile...just kidding :-)  We did both wear blue gingham but it wasn't done on purpose.  Given that we are both stubborn and happened to be running late, neither of us wanted to change.  Although, it would have been a lot easier for him to change his tie than me change an entire outfit AND I set my clothes out the night before...he totally planned it...

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?

Yuppie Blues


I recently received an email from someone in law school (don't worry, not gonna call you out!) asking for advice about school, etc.  I know I don't talk about work mainly because this blog is my "fun space" but one of the things I have enjoyed most about blogging is connecting with others.  Law school was an extremely difficult time and, although, I am by no means perfect and can give excellent advice, I've been there.  Every day I learn something new.  Every day I am humbled by the people I meet and the clients I see.  Just when I think I know everything there is to know about lawyering, something pops up and I'm back to researching.  Just like blogging, it helps to seek others and talk about similar interests.  Have I mentioned how much I love the blogging community?  :-)
