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.

Basic Witch

Another day, another oversized sweater and flats to the office kinda day.  But it's Halloween!  I am so so so excited for both my babies to dress up tonight!  Lucas chose his and Olivia's costumes and they will be going as Woody and Jessie from Toy Story.  I mean....holy cuteness!  

The pictures have a weird light and lines throughout but I couldn't love this oversized sweater more.  I bought it during the anniversary sale right before my maternity leave started and since I wore pajamas for three months straight, this was my first time wearing it.  I usually go for blacks and neutrals but this burnt orange color was just perfection.

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.

The Relaxed Sweater

I think by now I've drilled in how I'm into more relaxed office looks and no, it's not the most appropriate for my line of work.  I should be wearing suits every day but I don't.  I just don't but I think that's perfectly fine.  The days that I know I'll be seeing lots of people, have to be in court, depositions, etc, of course I will dress the lawyer lady part but the days that I know I'll be drowning in paperwork drafting my little heart out, you better bet your bottom dollar I'm going to be as comfortable as possible.  And this sweater meets all the requirements.

Turns out, it is really hard to photograph a white sweater in the bright a$$ Florida sunlight.  Huh, imagine that.

The Perfect Summery Dress

This Anthropologie dress is one my husband sweetly bought me for Mother's Day after I kept adding it then removing it then adding it to my shopping cart over and over again.  I get like this lately because I only want to buy things I love.  Gifts are a different story though, duh.  And I really love the dress now.  I think it's the perfect summery dress and, as you can tell in the picture above, is very flowy.  I don't love that I'm hunching over in these pictures but I love a good empire waist dress.  Anthropologie for the win!

I've lately regained by obsession with accessories and shoes.  I know, who loses interest in accessories but I did.  My sweet husband recently gifted me with this beautiful Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace in Mother Pearl and I wasted no time in wearing it.  It was to be a Mother's Day gift but I don't mind receiving it a little early.  Don't mind if I do.  I also have gone on a shoe buying spree.  SPREE I tell you!  During my pregnancy, my feet grew an entire size.  One. Whole. Size.  I thought I would be able to fit into my old shoes eventually but two years later and my feet are still ginormous.  I tried to get away with wearing one or two pairs of shoes but people I work full time all day long and apparently I like to beat my shoes up.  I'm not going to lie and say I've hated having to buy new shoes because I don't hate it.  

PS One of my favorite bloggers, MK, posted a similar outfit yesterday hence why I lurve her style!

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.

Something on the ground must have been very interesting this day OR they were the only two decent photos out of the bunch?  I'm gonna go with choice number 2.  I must admit that this isn't the most structured nor put together looks but sometimes I need to feel "loungy" to get a lot of work done.  (I made that word up, at least I think so.)  I need to feel like I can kick my shoes off and relax most days in order to accomplish tedious tasks.  Do you have loungy clothes you wear to work?

I've slowly but surely started getting the urge to buy clothes for myself again.  Plenty of reason existed for not wanting to buy new clothes (pregnancy, post preggo weight, spending boat loads on baby clothes and toys, saving up for the house down payment, etc) but I'm sort of tired of my closet.  I'm nowhere near losing all of my baby weight.  My baby is almost 10 months old (eek!) and I still have not lost it all.  I vow to do so during the summer because I miss all my colorful pencil skirts that have not seen the light of day in over a year and a half.  Thankfully, J.Crew rolled out some awesome sales and mail day has recently been more exciting.  Seeing all the new summer stuff in stores has me seriously craving fun sundresses and sandals.  I may do a post soon of all the goodies I'm eyeing!

Neck Candy

I think I've been in and out of the courtroom almost every day lately so my outfits have felt very blah.  I've been gravitating towards bold necklaces too add a little something special to all the button downs and blazers that have become my uniform.  It was during my maternity leave that I found, Groopdealz, and Zulily (for Lucas) and it is so hard for me not to want to buy something EVERY day.  Costume jewelry is not something that I like to spend a lot of money on and those websites have become my go to place for pretty necklaces.  For me, a pretty necklace brightens up my mood and makes me feel more feminine especially when wearing pant suits.  If you haven't checked out those websites, you definitely should!

(Nope, not being compensated by those websites as they most likely do not know who I am...but they sure are familiar with my debit card...)

Menswear Inspired

Most times, I'm jealous that my husband doesn't have to think much into what he wears to work.  He picks out his suit, shirt, tie and he's dunzo.  Meanwhile, I have to try things on, make sure it fits, wonder the same outfit that same week, etc.  As women, we do get to have more fun with our office wear and I'll take wearing a fancy necklace over a neck tie.  I do enjoy more menswear inspired outfits and have started saving/pinning more of these looks.

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 ;-)

Simple Does

Is it really November already? This year is just flying by and I can't stand it. However, my favorite holiday is approaching! I already have Lucas' outfit picked out for when he goes to sit on Santa's lap! 

Well, as the title of my post says, just a simple post today as it's busy busy at the office. I can't complain! Happy Monday :-)

The Final Countdown

I know, I know, more belly pics but I can't help it.  I mean--it is pretty massive.  And I can't help but realize that I'm in for the final countdown and even though I've complained enough for all pregnant women, I'm going to miss this big ole belly.  I won't miss the joint pain, rib pain, back aches...whoops, there I go again.

Today is hopefully the last hearing I have until I can truly rest and anticipate Lucas' arrival.  Until then, I've been sitting on towels (seriously) and hoping he'll stay in until Monday evening when my hearing is over.  Devotion to the profession, people!

Growing Fears

Ready for a TMI fear?  Since I'm planning on working all the way up to labor, I fear my water will break at the office or a court hearing.  My last hearing is scheduled for July 8 and until then I have one more scheduled.  So should I bring a towel to sit on?  I mean, how embarrassing if my water breaks during a hearing?  I've asked my attorney friends if their water broke in court but I haven't heard any horror stories yet.  I know it's silly to worry about but I live in a small community...who's going to forget the woman who's water broke in court?  Oy vey.

Floral Maxi

I'm back!  I've been failing at blogging lately.  I don't even have long hair anymore (these pictures were taken before my haircut).  The last couple of weeks have been hard on my body.  It's the last couple weeks of pregnancy and I'm feeling it - extremely swollen, uncomfortable, back aches, chest pain, nausea, exhaustion, you name it.  I'm still working and probably working more than I should be right now.  I decided to try to slow it down in June because, honestly, the health of my baby is more important.

I'm feeling better now (as long as I'm not outside...grrrrr Florida summer heat!) and nursing mode has fully set in.  Since I'm not buying clothes for myself for obvious reasons, my cravings lately have been beauty products, clothes for Lucas, baby knick knacks, and cleaning supplies.  Yep, cleaning supplies.  Last Saturday, I woke up and decided that none of my cleaning supplies were doing the job and stocked up at Target.  Some women get food cravings, I get buying cleaning supplies cravings.  Go figure.  Happy Monday!

In the Navy Stripes

I received a surprising gift from my dad on mother's day...this dress!  My dad picked out this dress all by himself!  My mom said that he told her this dress "looked like me."  I can't remember another time that my dad picked out a dress for me so I am very impressed that he picked out a dress that I would pick for myself.

It had to be hard for my dad being the only male in a household of five females (7 if you include the dogs.)  However, I think I got my shopping gene from him because he is definitely a shopper.  A couple weekends ago, he spoiled Lucas with lots of Florida Gator goodies that I'm super excited to put my little boy in.  I posted those pictures on my instagram but they are so much cuter in person because they are so little!  Thanks to his Abuelo, Lucas is ready for football season!

Hoppy Spring

Hoppy Spring...that's hoppy because Easter is this weekend.  Get it?  Okay, thanks!  (Note: I've never claimed to be clever.)

This week flew by!  I'm hoping for life to slow down a little so I can enjoy this moment in my life.  No complaints coming here, just blissfully hoping that Mondays turn into an extra weekend day!

Bump Style with DCinStyle

Words cannot express how excited I am about collaborating with Elena of DCinStyle today.  I've been an admirer of her art and blog for awhile.  She's so amazingly talented and created the art work above based on our photos.  This print is definitely going in my baby's nursery! 

Elena is also pregnant so we decided to both incorporate patterns and colors into our bump style for this collaboration!  I encourage you to visit Elena's blog so you can see how super talented she is and such a cute mommy to be!
