Subtle Animal Print

I recently was on the hunt for the perfect leopard cardigan that didn't scream animal print and I think I found it with this one.  Not only do I love the subtle pattern the material is nice and breathable which is a must in this Florida heat...hence the pony tail.  There is literally nothing more annoying than hair sticking to your neck due to the heat UGH.

Classic Twist

I'm not going to lie so the bell sleeves threw me off but I just happen to love it.  I'm always drawn to neutral colors so I just think that this is the perfect neutral pop that isn't simple by any means.  It's classy yet interesting enough that one can't say oh it's another white shirt.  I think my go to will always be neutral colors but I like giving it a little twist so that an outfit isn't too boring.

Lemonade

What a fun print to wear to the office!  I'm trying to get out of my neutral rut and I think this just did it.  Of course, I had to add black and white in there but I was going to work, after all.  Plus, no one can get mad at a lawyer wearing a bright lemon cardigan, right???

Saturday Night Live

Live from New York, it's SATURDAY NIGHT!  My sister has lived in the city for nearly 7 years or so and this is the first time I've gone to see her at work.  Unfortunately, it was a show week so we couldn't spend a lot of time with her but she did get us tickets to the show and we got to spend time with her during the live show as well.  The night we went, Jimmy Fallon hosted and the musical guest was Harry Styles.  Oh my were the fan girls hyped to see him!  After the show, my sister took us directly on the stage for a picture and I bumped into someone who happened to be Mr. Harry Styles and I feel like we're practically married now.  The show was so funny and I loved seeing my sister in her element.  She has worked so hard to get to where she is and I am so proud of her.  We had a great time and it was a looooong night for this grandma.  We didn't leave the studio until 1:30-2:00 a.m. ish and had to leave our hotel at 4 am to catch our flight...horrible timing on my end.

Well, that's the last of my NYC recap.  It was such an amazing weekend and a great way to recharge our batteries.  We are always go go go and so much of our lives revolves around our kids and work that it was nice to just focus on ourselves for a couple of days.  This trip also was a reward for major work accomplishments my husband and I recently had so having such a great trip was definitely motivation to keep up the hard work so we can play that much harder.

Central Park

Shock to no one that I went back to the park for a second time.  It's literally my favorite.  Saturday morning, we ate breakfast at the Laduree restaurant down near Soho and walked a bit through the area before taking a taxi up near our hotel.  I was on a little bit of a mission.  I had just recently purchased this bag that I wore the beginning of our trip but I was on the hunt for the one I'm wearing here.  I loved seeing the monogram a lot of other people have but I desired the all black bag as it's something a little more classic that I can wear to work and out and about.  I have been dreaming about this bag since I saw it online.  I went into an LV store in Orlando but they were all out and told me that it was unlikely that any store would have any in soon.  The first day I was in New York, I went to both LV stores and the boutique in Saks had ONE bag.  As I thought more about it, I started feeling guilty about indulging and treating myself.  My husband kept trying to buy it but I said I wanted to think about it even though I not so secretly wanted it badly.  It's strange because before kids, I didn't think twice before I bought something for myself, now with kids, I literally think of every little detail and try to talk myself out of everything.  Sure enough, the next day, the bag was gone.  As we walked through 5th Avenue to get to the park, we meandered into the 5th Avenue LV store, and there it was!  As I was trying it on in front of a mirror, two other women were asking for it and I could hear the women asking the SA if they could purchase it.  It was just meant to be and although it was definitely a splurge and I'm done buying handbags for a long time, it is my favorite bag ever.  I've been wearing it non-stop since buying it and immediately put my stuff in it in the store and walked out (after paying, of course).  

As soon as we got to the park, I promptly took out my Laduree macarons (yum!) and walked through until we got to the Boathouse.  We bought some pretzels, people watched, the weather was perfect, and, ugh, take me back!  It was another great day in the city.  In the afternoon, we freshened up at the hotel to get ready for dinner and to see my little sister hard at work at Saturday Night Live!

Hamilton

I'm pretty sure that I'm the last of the Miranda's to see Hamilton the Musical.  As I saw more and more family members go see the show sometimes multiple times, the FOMO was reaching an all-time high.  We planned this trip around the tickets to Saturday Night Live that my sister got for us and, thankfully, Hamilton tickets were available for us the night before SNL.  Score!  It was so amazing to see people camping out before the show and to feel the energy of everyone going to see the show that night.  Although it was my first time seeing the show, I've been listening to the soundtrack non-stop so much so that Lucas has some of the lyrics memorized and regularly asks for "Luisito's song" (he thinks that Lin-Manuel is actually his dad, my uncle)  Needless to say, the show was AMAZING and if you are ever able to get your hands on tickets, GOOOOOOOO!!!!!

New York State of Mind

This week I'll be sharing the trip my husband and I took to New York City a couple of weeks ago.  We took a quick weekend getaway trip without the kids and, as much as I missed them, we had the most wonderful time!  It was a weekend full of shopping, Hamilton, Saturday Night Live, oh my!  We even ate at restaurants and weren't rushed or flustered in order to prevent a toddler or baby meltdown.  It was our first trip together since having kids.  We've been on vacations before just had the kids with us.  It was great to sleep in for once and just wander around the city we love so much.  Our first night, my sister met us at our hotel, New York Palace, and took us to see her office at Rockefeller Center which was just a block or so away.  It was great to see a glimpse into her fabulous life in the city.  For you Gossip Girl fans, the Palace hotel is where Serena and her family lived.  The hotel was amazing, spacious, and in the perfect central location.  Plus, I have no shame in admitting I'm a Gossip Girl fan :-)  Our first stop after sleeping in was to go to Central Park and see the Gapstow Bridge where my husband proposed to me 8 years ago.  It was just as beautiful as I remembered it.  My favorite thing to do in the city is to walk around the park.  I can't wait to hopefully go back next year and bring Lucas because I know he will love running around Central Park.  After a full day of walking, shopping, and eating, we went back to our hotel to get ready for dinner at Southern Hospitality (so yummy!) and then to see Hamilton!  Photos of that to come in the next post!  

xoxo, Gossip Girl (sorry had to!)

Weekend Down Time

Because we are so busy during the week, it would make sense that we would like to just stay home on the weekends but, it has become healthier for all of us to get out of the house and be busy at least one of the weekend days.  It comes to no surprise to those that know us that we are a Disney family, Disnerds really.  With our annual passes and living so close to the parks, we regularly go but on the weekends that we stay home, it feels nice to get out of the pjs and enjoy time at the park or at a kids play area.  Part of working through my working mommy guilt is to feel like the time I do have with my kids is precious and not wasted.  I want my kids to know that even if I'm working, when I am home with them, I am hands on and enjoy being with them.  And I couldn't help but sneak in the bottom photos of Olivia!  I mean look at those thighs!  I'm obsessed!

Back and Ready

What is this?? What is this?? Remember me??? Yes, folks, I'm back.  I took a super long blogging break but I'm excited...to be back!  Honestly, I was overwhelmed with work and other priorities that I was taking horrible care of myself and, thus, blogging took a back seat.  I'm not ashamed to admit that after having Olivia, my post-partum depression was at an all time high and with going back to a high paced career and adjusting to life with two kids, it took it's toll on me.  Thankfully, although I don't ever think my working mommy guilt will ever go away, I'm getting a better handle on things and life is great.  I'm looking forward to continuing this blogging adventure and posting about life lately including an amazing trip to New York just my husband and I took!  Oh and I also have been shopping!  For reals though, I feel like I haven't shopped for myself in forever and it finally feels great to buy a nice handbag...or two...

Oh and I'm also training for a marathon!  So.Much.To.Tell.You.

Happy New Year!  Yes, It's late January and this is still my first post of the year.  My little baby girl just turned 6 months old yesterday but I am still trying to get into the swing of things.  Just when I thought I could devote more time to blogging, work started getting even busier and adding that with a three year old boy, 6 month old, Etsy store business, and who knows what else, life has been cray.  I so miss blogging though so I hope to make this a more regular thing.

Although I haven't really shopped for myself lately, one day my neighbor sent me a message that she had just bought every single color in this top and that I just had to get one!  I don't typically buy v-necks but it was on sale so I thought it could be a nice weekend top.  Not only have I dressed this down for the weekend, I made it work for the office as well and I luuuurrrrvvveee it!  Seriously, comfy comfy comfy!

Winter is Coming

And by winter, I mean Florida winter as in 65 degrees and it feels wonderful.  The weather has been cooling down here and the moment I felt even the slightest of cool air, I went into full panic mode realizing that Lucas had outgrown his sweaters and I did not have even one sweater for Olivia.  #momfail.  Never fear because I shopped my little heart out and bought my littles a whole new set of cold weather clothes only to wake up the next day to 80 degree weather...womp womp.

The Final Countdown

I'm in the last few days of this pregnancy and can't believe how fast time flew by.  Lucas celebrated his third birthday yesterday and I'm in shock that I have a three year old.  I decided to start my maternity leave before giving birth this time so that I can soak up some time with my only baby and nest some more.  It's weird not having to go into the office and work since I worked all though my last maternity leave and worked right up until the day I was induced.  I definitely could use this little bit of time off though.

So I decided to turn my Louis Vuitton Baggy Denim GM bag into a crossbody bag.  I prefer crossbody bags anyhow but I intend to use this bag as an everyday/diaper bag.  I know I sound like an a$$hole wanting to use a Louis Vuitton bag as a diaper bag but this time around, I will not pack 50 million things with me to just go to Target with the baby.  Seriously, with Lucas, I packed this diaper bag so much I looked ridiculous.  No one needs 6 onesies, 20 diapers, 5 bottles, toys, etc. just to run one errand...but that and more is what I packed with Lucas.  Once I learned to only carry the necessities, I was able to start using my pre-baby handbags.  That is my intention with this bag for it to carry the necessities and necessities only.  I'm planning on doing a post on what I carry in my bag since I did purchase organizational items to keep me in check - necessities only!

When Time Flies

I know I have been saying this a lot but holy moly is time not only flying but busy does not even begin to describe what I am.  Last week was a trial week and if I wasn't working on the case at night, I was in bed by 8:30 p.m. because I was exhausted and had to be up early.  Then July somehow rolled around...how did that happen?!  How is it already baby girl's birth month?!?!?!?!?!?!  During the long weekend, we finally finished baby girl's nursery but I still have a list of things that I hope to get done before she's born.  This pregnancy just flew by!

Transitioning Non-Maternity Clothes


It helps that this top that I bought last year at Nordstrom was already pretty big to begin with because it has been great in adding to what I can wear during this pregnancy.  I haven't bought many maternity items this time around but believe you me, my belly is huge this time around.  I'm finding that tunics have been great to wear and purchase recently because they are pieces that I can also wear post-pregnancy.  Maternity bottoms had to be purchased because, at least for me, there was no way around that.  I don't mind those purchases though since I work 5 loooong days a week and constantly reuse (of course wash!) them throughout the week.  Dresses are also a great way to wear during pregnancy that don't necessarily have to be maternity.  I am by no means against maternity clothes but it's also important for me to be cost efficient and find pieces that I can also wear after birth.  I do have to say though that maternity fashion has come a long way and there's so many cute options now!

The Perfect White Top


I bought this top before I was pregnant and so happy that it is one that will grow with me.  My tummy has popped A LOT A LOT A LOT more than when I was pregnant with Lucas at this point in the pregnancy.  I feel and look like I'm much further along than I am.  I'm happy that I can still wear the clothes that I love while having a big preggo belly.  I know these days are numbered...

Rewearing Clothes Again


I wear this cardigan blazer thingy probably more than I should.  I LURVE it.  In fact, I re-wear a ton of stuff which is probably why I can't take outfit photos everyday because you would be life, ummm didn't you wear that last week?  After my son was born, a switch went off in me that said, only buy things that you love.  The reason why this switch happened after my son was born was because I felt very guilty spending any money on myself.  I'm not sure why, maybe because I felt every dollar I had should be spent on him and his savings, but I felt guilty every spending money on myself.  I work full time so the necessity to wear office clothes every day was there so I decided to only buy things that I love.  And I think I've kept this up.  My closet isn't us busting at the seams as it used to be but I love everything more than when I was buying all of the things.  Food for thought :-)

Weekend Photo Diary


The weekend started out on a somber note as we watched on tv the horrifying events happening in Paris.  Paris holds a special place in my heart.  My entire adolescence, I dreamed and prepared for an imaginary trip to Paris so much so that I opted to take French classes 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.  A dream was finally fulfilled when my husband and I honeymooned in Paris for what was the most magical week and a half of my whole life.  It was devastating to see the heinous acts committed to such a beautiful place and people.  I'm sure others can also relate that it was a somber weekend.

To the most superficial transition of topics, I wore the above outfits Saturday AND Sunday.  I did do laundry on Saturday so my clothes weren't dirty, but for reals, two days in a row.  I love these leggings from Nordstrom and my long sweater is a MUST!  It's hard to tell in the photos, but the sweater is a deep burgundy and so incredibly soft.  On Saturday, I ventured out during Lucas' nap to do...shhhh...more christmas decoration shopping...shhhhh.  My husband made me promise to not decorate until after Thanksgiving but I couldn't help myself.  I started with the snowflake pillow I mentioned last week and for a whole week, the hubs didn't notice.  So on Saturday, I couldn't help myself and bought the multicolor deer pillow from Target, ornaments from Michaels, and the chair covers from the dollar store.  I think I would have been in the clear if it wasn't for the chair covers.  Yeah, the chair covers gave me away so now I really had to promise I wouldn't decorate...until next weekend ;-/



In case you are wondering what it's like to be the mom of a rambunctious two year old boy, here's a glimpse into what it's like 100% of the time.  #carseverywhere #legoseverywhere #knockingintowallsallthetime

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.

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!
