Neon and Stripes

If there's a rule that pregnant women should stay away from stripes then I clearly have broken it many times throughout my pregnancy.  Not only stripes but bright pink neon stripes that scream huge hormonal lady coming your way!

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and everything is right on track.  Little man is measuring well and all the symptoms I described to my doctor are "normal."  Apparently, running out of air just walking from the couch to my bed is completely normal.  Good news!

Diva Confessions

Random thought of the the day:  Fashion Night on Bravo is becoming my favorite night of the week (besides Friday).  I mean Rachel Zoe Project,  Brad Brad World, then Dukes of television heaven.  In my next life I want to be a stylist or fashion designer.

I've received a couple comments and questions on how I can still be wearing heels pregnant but I have a couple diva confessions.  Firstly and grossly, I take my shoes off at the office.  I know that's nasty but I don't walk around barefoot and I sit in my chair 95% of the time.  Second, and here comes the diva confession, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to moving around so most the time, people come to me at the office versus me walking around.  So in my defense, I'm not so much a diva and more just plain lazy...don't judge me too harshly.

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.

Flirty and Girly

Pink stripes and leopard together?  I'll go with it for now.  I'm not very adventurous when it comes to pattern mixing and tend to stick more to the matching side of things but every once in awhile I feel spontaneous.  For some, this mixing may seem bland but for me, less is more.

Nature Walks

I'm not the outdoorsy type but at the same time I am.  Does that make sense?  No, okay.  Well, I love the outdoors and admiring its beauty but only for so long.  This time of year, when the leaves are changing and the wind is cooler, I love being outdoors a little longer just to take it all in.

Working Uniform

I think I may have been in the minority of those school kids that actually wanted to wear uniforms.  I never had to wear a uniform but something about the plaid always appealed to me.  I would have gotten tired of them just like when I was a Brownie and never wanted to wear the brown uniform but since the grass is always greener, I secretly wanted uniforms.

When I was in middle school, there was a strict dress code that required the use of a belt if you had belt loops.  Well, one day I went to school in overalls that had, yep, belt loops and I, of course, did not wear a belt.  My friend and I were both called into the office for not wearing a belt.  Neither of our moms would come bring us a belt so we did the next best thing...cut the loops off.  This has obviously scarred me in life (this dress has loops attached) and is probably why I just wanted uniforms instead of having to wear a belt with my overalls...priorities.

A Hoot

Whenever I visited my family in Puerto Rico and stayed at my grandmother's house, my mom's little sister would lend us her room for us to sleep.  My sisters and I loved sleeping in her room because she would let us play with her makeup, jewelry, and play dress up.  Another thing I really loved about her room was her collection of owls.  She had tons of owl figurines.  Growing up, I took a liking to owls because it reminded me of being young and my aunt's owl collection.  When I saw that this GAP blouse had little owls on it, I was smitten.  Then when I saw how cute it looked on Beach Chic Style, I knew this shirt and I were meant to be!

What wasn't meant to be...all the dry shampoo I failed to properly mix in my hair...holy gray hair!

Unexpected Date Night

So the stripes on this dress are definitely blue but shhhhhhh...don't tell the girl in these photos because she definitely thought they were black until now.

After work, my husband and I had plans for grocery shopping and a Target stop.  You know, date night.  Not really, but since we didn't feel like cooking, we headed to one of our favorite restaurants.  An unexpected date night...until we ran into my mom who was having dinner with her friends.  Small town life ;-)

Stings Like A Bee

It's odd going back to work after having a day off in the middle of the week...once again...not complaining :-)  It was actually a good break in between and makes the work week flow better for me.  I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July!

Fashionspirations: Blogger Style

Ever since I started reading fashion and lifestyle blogs a couple years ago, I found myself being inspired by other bloggers to make the extra effort to look nice in the morning even if I didn't feel like it.  Reading other blogs has also inspired me to incorporate more color into my wardrobe that was once 90% black or white.  

One of my favorite bloggers, Skylette from Sequins and Stilettos, wore this outfit recently and, as you can tell,  I was more than inspired by it since I nearly copied it to the tee!  Skylette has such great style!  Whereas, before, I probably would have just worn black pants, but seeing Skylette wear her striped top with colored pants opened my horizons :-)   Has anyone else been inspired by something you saw on a blogger, pinterest, etc?

Coral Court Confessions

Although I wore this orangy coral sweater at work all day, I didn't wear it to court in the morning and stuck to my usual black and white ensemble.  I have a hard time trying to incorporate more color into my court appearance outfits because I'm not sure how I will come off to others.  I know I shouldn't care about what people think and just what makes me happy but I can't help to think that others will perceive me as being to "girly" and not the female attorney I want them to see me as.  Hmmm...this is getting deep ;-)

On a side note, my hubby added an instagram thingy to my blog, woot woot!  So, ever since I started reading fashion blogs way back when, I used and still use google reader to keep track of my favorites.  I've slowly started to add blogs via google friend connect but I still haven't transferred all of the blogs I read off reader.  Does anyone have any preference over one or the other, google reader vs. GFC?  Which one is better and why?  Thanks and have a great Friday!

Cargo Pink

You wouldn't know that I live in Florida by the look of those super duper pale legs!  Although I can tan if I tried, I'm terrified of sun rays (obviously) and trying to find a self tanner that won't make me orange ;-)  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Yellow and Black

I've worn this Loft sweater a couple of times before just never with the black shirt underneath.  I get to work and someone tells me that I'm channeling Star Trek with this look.  Although I did see the new Star Trek movie that came out a little bit ago, I'm not familiar with Star Trek nor did I ever watch the show.  I thought, there's no way someone on Star Trek had a yellow sweater with a black collar...

I guess Captain Kirk and I share similar tastes...
