Orange Ruffle Shirt

Top {Similar}  /  Pants  /  Shoes  /  Bag {Similar}  /  Necklace  /  Sunnies  /  Bracelets

It's bright a$$ orange, it has ruffles, and I flipping love it.  The girl who loves to wear black more than anything is finally into color color color!  I had been going back and forth over black (duh) and this orange color and I am so happy to have branched out of my comfort zone!

Scalloped Tank

It wasn't until I uploaded these photos that I noticed I took pictures with my sleeves rolled up and hair band around my wrist...it's an unfiltered life I lead.  But that scalloped tank though!  I live for scalloped anything and as soon as I saw this tank was scalloped, I knew I had to have it.  I also love that it has adjustable straps so I was able to pull it up a little higher for a more professional office look.

Lady in Tweed

Jacket (ON SALE!)  /  Dress  /  Shoes  /  Sunnies  /  Bag {Similar}  

I just feel smart wearing a tweed jacket.  I could be cleaning my carpets but if I have a tweed jacket on, I'm a smart lady cleaning my carpets.  Ok bad analogy but I just love this jacket.  I picked it up when I was in New York and despite practicing law for 7 years (OMG I'm old!) this is my first tweed jacket.  I remember graduating from college and my grandmother telling me that whenever I start my first legal job, I should always have a jacket draped over my chair no matter what.  I keep mine in the car but whenever I wear a blazer and now, a tweed jacket, I remember my grandmother's sound advice.  Believe it or not, her advice has saved me in a pinch when an emergency hearing has come up or a conflict where I have to be in court in a hurry with no time to go home.  Thanks Abuela!

Guys, this cardigan has gold buttons.  GOLD BUTTONS.  I cannot tell you how much I love gold button details.  I mean, I feel so fancy prancing around in a gray sweater with GOLD BUTTONS!  Not much more I can say that just love for this super simple cardigan with...gold buttons.  It's the little things in life :-)

I'm on INSTAGRAM

Sweater  /  Pants  /  Shoes  /  Sunnies  /  Bag {Similar}

Dainty and Decadent is now on Instagram!  I'm like an old lady that just discovered how to use the internet.  I've always had an Instagram account but, to be honest, I kept it on private because I share pictures of my kids and didn't want those just out there to anyone and everyone.  So this new Instagram account is solely to share fashion, beauty, blog stuff, and even some Disney parks stuff sprinkled in!  I'm so excited to have this outlet and to share my interests on Instagram now too.  But if you already follow me on my other account, I will still be posting insanely cute photos and videos of the two cutest kids in all of the land - wink ;-)

My Instagram name is daintyanddecadentblog.  I've posted my most recent posts already :-)

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.

Pink Lady

I usually stay away from pink...and ruffle sleeves...but I just couldn't help myself with this one.  I just loved the color and the flirty sleeves that I couldn't pass this up!

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???

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!!!!!

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.

The Comfiest Tee Ever

Jacket: Loft {Similar}  /  Top: Express  /  Pants: Old Navy {Similar}  /  Shoes: Nine West  /  Bag: Louis Vuitton

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!

Working Mom Uniform

Long gone are the days of blow drying my hair in the mornings, setting them in curlers, gracefully putting my makeup on while sipping coffee and listening to Bravo in the background.  Basically, mornings are a blur now and by the time I get to the office, I feel like I've already worked a full day.  I wouldn't trade my new normal for the world but with the good you get a little craziness in the mix.  So now I have what I call a working mom uniform which is basically a tunic long enough to cover the bum, legging trousers that are work appropriate and some sort of long necklace or necklace of any sort.  Done.  It's my go-to, don't-need-to-think-about-it outfit for those mornings that you wish you could restart or drive yourself to the spa or nordstrom or target or back to bed.

Floral Peplum Top

Don't mind the headless pictures...it's just better this way...#insomnia

And suddenly we're days away from Christmas.  I, of course, will have to finish shopping during my lunch breaks this year because life.  Oh and I also have not sent out our Christmas cards.  Frankly, I'm surprised that I even remembered to order them this year.  One day, I will have my sh*t together but today is just not that day.  

I'm still loving this floral peplum top that I bought earlier in the summer.  Although, I can't find it online, I linked a similar top below!

Laces Up

The pictures do not do this top justice but I am loving lace up tops!  It reminds me of the 90s for some reason.  This one has a striped pattern that, again, is hard to tell in the pictures but I am obsessed.  Anyone else thinking the 90s are coming back around?

Back to Work After Maternity Leave

Well, folks.  Maternity leave is over and it's back to reality or to a new normal that I haven't quite figured out yet.  I thought for sure I would never make it to work on time but somehow I only managed to be a few minutes late and not totally looking ratchet.  

For some reason, I thought that going back to work after my second child would be easier but it wasn't.  Not the least bit.  I shed lots of tears out of working mommy guilt because I now know what to expect which is spending less time with my child.  However, and trust me, I've only come to realize this after lots of tears, I'm a better mom because I work.  Everyone has to make the right decision for their own family and, for us, this feels right for the moment.  Thankfully, I had a great first week back at the office and I know Olivia is in great hands while I work.  It will take some adjusting to but soon we will all fall into a routine and all will be right in the world.

These Tired Eyes

I only have a few short weeks until my baby girl makes her arrival and as exhausted as I look in these photos, is it weird that I'm going to miss my bump?  And as much complaining as I've done throughout this pregnancy, is it weird that I'm going to miss being pregnant?  I'm pretty sure that this baby will complete our family so as uncomfortable as I feel right now, I'm trying to savor each moment.  My husband and I were talking about how fast this pregnancy went.  My pregnancy with my son felt like it was two years long since all we did was talk about the baby, baby, baby.  Now, with a very active two year old, full time jobs, decorating our new home, dealing with our son's schedule, blah blah blah, it was like I was pregnant and now she's almost here.  Time is such a crazy thing.  Needless to say, I'm going to try to take some extra days off so that I can enjoy this short time as a family of three and appreciate where we are in life right now.

What I Wore to Work Work Work Work Work

Ooof, it's getting harder and harder to wake up early in the morning and even more difficult to move even a finger but I'm in the homestretch and can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I've been scarily and dangerously risking a wardrobe malfunction by wearing non maternity tops to work but I think my time to get away with it is way way over so I'll probably be repeating outfits.  Here are a few outfits I wore to work recently that tested gravity...

Summa Summa Summatime


Wow!  How is it already June?!  Lucas finished his first year in school and I can't believe it.  I'm so sad that he'll have a new teacher soon since we loved his first teacher so much!  Along with the start of summer, I'm in the homestretch of this pregnancy that already feels like the fastest pregnancy ever.  June is going to be a crazy busy work month, my birthday month (no, I don't celebrate a birthday month), and time to finish up baby girl's room.  Things are going to get really interesting around here!

Hey, Baby!


No big deal.  Just looks like I swallowed a watermelon but no big deal, nothing weird looking here.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I feel so much bigger carrying baby girl.  Getting dressed for work is getting more and more interesting but I just have to chuckle since it looks like I'm smuggling a basketball into the office!
