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.

That Time I Matched My Kids

Yep, that's right.  I bought us all matching outfits.  No shame in my game.  I even bought my husband a matching shirt but he wouldn't wear it.  Rude.  So he looked like the odd man out, not me of course.  The lady matching her kids, nope, I didn't look weird AT ALL.  In fact, I plan on matching my kids in the future.  Yep.  In all seriousness, I couldn't wait for this day to come.  When I was little, my mom made us all match and I hated it.  Now, I plan on trying to get away with matching as much as I can.  Since I know my husband doesn't read here often, I'm going to make sure he is in the car and not looking when I put the kids in the car so that when we get to our destination, POOF, we're ALL matching and he won't have an opportunity to change.  I'm a genius.

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.

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.

The Cover the Booty Shirt

Just a quick post today to give a shout out to the genius who invented high/low tunics.  That person deserves an award, a prize, a billion dollars.  Seriously.

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.

#NSale Preggo Style


I LOVE this top that I recently bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (#nsale)!  I was saving the stuff I bought for post-preggo work clothes, however, this shirt was perfect coverage for this 9 month belly.  I love how soft it is and even more so the price!  At only $15.90 during the sale, it is too good to pass up!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchase

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  I'm sure you fashionistas are well aware that the best shopping day of the year started yesterday...the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (#Nsale)!  If you have a Nordstrom card or have your debit card linked, you can shop early access or else the sale becomes available to everyone on July 22 and lasts until August 7.

Instead of sharing some of my favorite picks, I thought I'd be honest and tell you what I actually purchased.  I also bought something for my sister who has a birthday coming up but I didn't include that in the picks below.  I started the morning with my cart completely full but narrowed it down to the items below.  I wanted to purchase shoes but since I'm having tons of swelling right now, I think I'll need to wait until a couple weeks post-partum to try new shoes on.  So I didn't go completely crazy but I'm happy with what I narrowed my list down to.  Let me know if you shopped the sale this year!

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!

Weekend Party

These aren't the best photos but they were quickly snapped using my Iphone before I headed out to a good friend's baby shower a couple weekends ago.  She and I have been friends since we were 6 years old and now we both have the exact due date!  I was so excited to celebrate her baby shower.  I usually do not dress up on the weekends so it was nice to get out of my leisure pants and attempt to look presentable.

Life Lately: Little Sister's Nashville Wedding

Long time no see!  It's been quite a few weeks and I'll try to catch up as I start blogging regularly again.  Throughout the past couple weeks, I've been on and off bed rest due to ongoing Braxton Hicks contractions.  I'm still working full-time, so I've been balancing taking care of my body, working, Lucas, life, etc. so unfortunately, blogging went to the bottom of the totem pole.  We also just got back from Nashville for my sister's wedding which are the photos I'm sharing below.

My sister got married at the Nashville Symphony which was an absolutely beautiful venue!  I was maid of honor and little Lucas was a ring bearer.  His bow tie, suspenders, and Chucks outfit was too too cute!  Shockingly, not only did Lucas walk down the aisle but he was the perfect angel throughout the ceremony and sat quietly on my sister, Ana's lap.  I didn't want to jinx it so I tried not to make eye contact with him!

We had such a great time spending time with family and celebrating Melisa and Jeremy.  It was also special to spend Mother's Day in Nashville with all of my family.

Lucas sitting quietly as the girls got their hair and makeup done.  Can you tell that I emphasize when he's quiet?  He's definitely a firecracker!

I mean...I mean...


 Lucas was in heaven with his Aunties!

Mom, sisters, and I

FYI Finding a maid of honor dress to wear at 7 months pregnant was no easy task but I went with this similar J.Crew dress and had it altered like no other.

The happy married couple.


This was such a sweet gift from my sister!  She and I love this Burberry perfume and she had it engraved which makes it extra special :-)

Weekend Photo Diary


It was a busy busy weekend for us and it felt good to finally be up and about.  For the past couple of weekends, I had been taking it easy since getting lots of Braxton Hicks contractions.  I had an appointment last week with my doctor and learned more about what to do when the contractions come on so I've been slowly working up to do more activities but then slowing it back down a bit.  Since the weather was amazing, we decided to go to Epcot at Disney World early since it's leisure park and one of my favorites.  Thanks to our fast passes, we went on Lucas' favorite rides, Nemo and Mexico, took pictures with characters, ate our favorite food in France and Norway, all before 1 p.m.  Instead of heading straight home, we decided to venture out to IKEA.  It was such a successful shopping trip too!  Since we're turning Lucas room into a big boy room this week, we picked up a dresser for him, toddler eating table, and a dresser/changing table for the new nursery.  I'm so excited for the dresser/changing table!  

Sunday was equally busy as we bought paint for the furniture and picked up lots of goodies for the nursery at HomeGoods.  We also spent a good deal organizing the nursery since it has been a storage facility of all our junk from the move.  I also started organizing baby girl's clothes and closet which was too much fun for me.  Below are some snapshots of our busy weekend:

How sweet is this romper pictured below?!  It's from Bailey's Blossoms and it is just too sweet!  The bow is one of a hundred my sweet Aunt made for baby girl :-)


The kids are all set to visit my little sister and family in NYC someday!  The Yankees outfits are ones my dad bought for baby girl which makes me laugh because when my sisters and I were little, my dad bought us all Yankees outfits as well and we joked that we looked like little boys.  My dad is such a huge sports fan and he ended up with 4 extremely girly girls.  He and Lucas are extremely close and because of my dad, Lucas has more Yankees tees than I think Derek Jeter had!  The Piccolini NYC shirt was just too cute to pass up for Lucas.  These cute clothes are now making me miss the city!  I'm hoping to go for a weekend after the baby is born :-)  The teal shirt is from OshKosh.

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!

PS: Here's this exact outfit worn last year and not pregnant: Non- Maternity Version

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...

Holiday Blues


Oh it was hard getting up to go to work today.  After almost a week off for the holidays, it's depressing when it's over and real life begins again.  We had a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday this year with my whole family.  My sisters, who all live out of state, came home and Lucas was in Auntie heaven.  I got most of my holiday shopping done which is awesome!  I may even have snagged the Tory Burch bag I had on my wish list during the Tory Burch sale and by "may" I mean I definitely did!  It will be the perfect work bag.  I can't believe we are already in December!

Weekend Photo Diary

Weekend Errands Outfit
Sweater: Nordstrom (LOVE!)  /  Shirt: J.Crew Factory  /  Pants: Nordstrom  /  Shoes: Nike  /  Bag: Tory Burch

We had a nice and relaxed weekend running errands, catching up on orders for The Dainty Planner, and had a nice little BBQ with family.  I rarely dress up on the weekends since I have to dress up during the work week so I prefer comfy on those days I'm not at the office.  I just recently started having the decency for humankind to at least put on mascara and concealer on the weekends just in case I ever run into clients while out and about. 
  
While in Sephora, I repurchased a favorite hair product of mine - Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun.  When I first bought this, I wasn't sure how to use it but I found that it was THE PERFECT DRY SHAMPOO (yes, that required all caps).  I just hate the price.  I find myself wanting to use it every day but, ugh, the price.  If anyone else knows of a good alternative, I'm all ears.  Until now, this is one of my favorite hair products.  I also kept on decorating for the holidays which puts me in the best mood.  Lucas helped and by helped I mean he kept taking down to play with the sweetest Fisher Price Nativity Set we bought last year.  I also bought the cutest Santa pillow from Kirklands.  I am so so excited to put up our tree this weekend and for a short work week!  Happy Monday indeed!
