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!

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.

#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!

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!

The Flippin' Weekend

What is this?  What is this?  Yep, a weekend where I actually put makeup on my face and clothes other than sweats!  Anytime that I manage to brush my hair on a weekend is a win for me.  This time, I went to my friend's sip and see and for those of you not in the South, sip and see's are common baby shower type parties thrown after the baby is born so you can "sip" (usually wine or champagne) and "see" the baby.  Don't worry, there was no "sipping" for me this time.  As I held my friend's sweet baby boy, I wondered if caring for a newborn would just come back to me.  With my first, a lot of trial and error so I'm hoping for the second time around, things will be easier?  Well, as easy as caring for a newborn and threenager can be...pray for me!

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...

Girly Dress


I remember much of my pregnancy with Lucas was spent in dresses and rarely in pants.  This time around, I rarely have worn dresses and have opted for flowy tunics and leggings.  This dress is probably one of three maternity items I purchased this entire pregnancy and I love it!  It's not something that I can wear every week but I had to buy it when I saw that Old Navy also made a baby girl romper in the same print.  Yep, I'm going to be that mom that wears a matching outfit with my daughter and I couldn't be more thrilled...her...probably not so much!

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!

The Green Bag


I'm a bag lady, a proud bag lady.  Always have been, always will be.  My obsession with bags started when I was very young.  I vividly remember being in elementary school and falling in love with my grandmother's Chanel bag.  I had no idea what brands meant just that I thought her bag was really really pretty and I wanted one.  My dream of owning a Chanel finally came true when I bought my Large Flap bag in Paris while on my honeymoon but my love of bags is a forever thing.  Since beginning my career and becoming a mommy, all of my handbag purchases have been with the thought of whether this or that bag would make a great diaper bag or work bag.  I have not made any "fun" bag purchases in forever.  Until now.  When I saw this Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (NOW ON SALE!!!!!!!!) in the teal color, 'twas love.  I REALLY wanted it.  I promised myself awhile back that I would not buy anything unless it was needed or I REALLY wanted it and I REALLY wanted this bag.  My husband sweetly gifted me the bag for Mother's Day and I couldn't wait to use!  I took it with us to Nashville and amazingly, it doubled as the perfect toddler bag.  I no longer have to bring an entire nursery with me on the go, so I carried essentials with me along with Lucas' tablet, a few toys, snacks, and sippy cup.  I seriously love this bag and the color is gorgeous!  I think the color is called Sea Green but it's more teal/turquoise in real life.  If you are looking for a fun yet functional bag, I highly recommend this one!

Take On An Old Non-Maternity Outfit


I'm over the half way point on what seems like the fastest pregnancy ever and still finding ways to change up my style while embracing my large preggo belly.  I bought this swing dress from Old Navy last summer and it's not maternity.  It's meant to be, well, swingy, so it's perfect and comfortable to wear while pregnant in the Florida heat.  I wore a very similar outfit to this here and I really liked the color combo so I'm happy to have translated it into a maternity outfit.

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.

The Lazy Girls Maternity Guide


I've pretty much spent my entire pregnancy thus far in long shirts/tunics and maternity pants.  I think I've mentioned a trillion times how sick I was at the beginning and now, although the nausea is gone (thank god!), I'm now so tired and having braxton hicks contractions.  Thankfully, baby girl is doing great which is all I care about.  Since I'm still working full time, I'm still trying to look put together and this pretty much my go to uniform which I don't mind because they are items that I either wore or can wear post-pregnancy.  My hair and makeup are a different story - keepin' it real around here...

Grayer Days


What is this?!  An outfit post with real photos?  Why yes, my friends, I have crawled out of my hole and made half an effort to look human at work.  AND the bump photos are back, folks!  As someone recently told me, this pregnancy has kicked my butt.  You know those women that are only sick during their first trimester?  Yeah, I'm not one of those people.  However, I'm done with the pity party and am trying to feel better about myself.  What better way to make yourself feel better than throwing on a comfy/cute outfit, brushing your hair, and putting some makeup?  Hey, it works for me and I'll take it!
