Crimson and Leopard

I'm not going to lie, I look like a goober in the top picture.  I look like a little kid on their first day of kindergarten and mom's wanting to take a picture of them in their new outfit.  I have not mastered the art of taking outfit pictures yet and after two years of blogging, I'm not sure I will.  Now, you're probably wondering why I would post this picture if I'm obviously not crazy about it.  Well, I really love blogging and I made a resolution to keep up with it this year.  I love connecting with other bloggers and readers and getting inspiration from you all.  We don't have a lot of time in the mornings so it's slim pickings when I go back and look at the pictures on my camera.  If anyone has any tips on being more photogenic, I'm all ears!  Have a great weekend!

Bows On Repeat

This sweater has been in heavy rotation lately!  I'm not a huge fan of sequins so I almost didn't pull the trigger on this one but I'm so glad that I did.  I just recently started purchasing clothes again after what I think was a 6 month hiatus...6 months!  I'm still refusing to buy any more bottoms as I'm still working on getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight and I know that if I buy any bottoms that I will get too comfortable.  Cheapo Maria does not like seeing my dresser full of J.Crew skirts that sadly still don't fit and I do not want them going to waste.  Nonetheless, with all the after holiday sales going on, I took advantage of the extra discounts and bought clothes for me...and none for Lucas!  It seems, well, it is fact, that the only clothes shopping I have done was for Lucas so it felt kind of nice to buy myself some pretty things.  From now on, I want to only buy things I truly love and not just because it was a great deal and that goes for little Lucas too ;-)  That boys closet rivals mine and he definitely has more clothes than his daddy...can't help how cute baby clothes are...

Walking on Sunshine

Who else is excited for Halloween?  This 30 year old grown lady is hella excited!  We and by we I mean just I have an annual tradition of watching Hocus Pocus aka best Halloween movie ever while eating worms in dirt (chocolate pudding with gummy worms and oreo crumbs on top).  I can't wait for Lucas to be old enough to take part in the tradition and for trick or treating.  We're dressing Lucas up this year as Superman.  Superman is my husband's favorite superhero and we found a cute costume that doubles as pajamas.  Win win!  My first Halloween, I think I was Starbrite and was Starbrite for like 5 more Halloweens in a row!  

PS: Thank you ladies for the baby clothes website recommendations!  

ETA: A lot of people ask me or tell me that they missed out on the sequin bow cardi from J. Crew that I wear religiously and this morning, I saw one pop up on J.Crew factory!  Here's a link to the factory version that is practically identical: Sequin Bow Cardigan.

Leopard and Black

I plan on being totally predictable this weekend and looking for fallish things to do.  I can't help it.  The fallen leaves, the bold colors, apple cinnamon candles burning, and holiday decorations...they put me in a good mood dangit!  I'm not sure where one would go about looking for fallish things to do but if there's a way, I'm going to find it and hopefully fallish things to do includes cupcakes...must include cupcakes...

Bow Necessities

Monday morning, my sister, Melisa, sent me the text below.  She lives in Nashville so she had no way of knowing that I wore a completely similar outfit to hers last week!  I had to share her text because not only was it random that we wore something similar but that she referred it to a Dainty and Decadent outfit! Ha!  Out of the four girls in my family, Melisa is the second born.  She was my maid of honor and one of Lucas' godmother's.  She has truly been such a wonderful aunt to Lucas and so have my other sisters.  Lucas is such a lucky boy to have have both sides of our family love him so much.  My sisters ask for daily updates of him and I gladly oblige...I mean, it's not like I don't take hundred of photos of him a day (those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I'm one of those moms!)

Wednesday Adams

Black continues to be my go to color and with my fair pale skin, I have to be careful so I don't go around looking like a zombie.  

This past weekend, I took out all my fall decorations and lit yummy candles (this one's my favorite!).  Something about fall decorations and cinnamon apple scented candles always puts me in a good mood.  This weekend, we plan on taking Lucas to a pumpkin patch and I couldn't be more excited.  Although I love Christmas season, October is probably my favorite month.  I look forward to the annual Oktoberfest festivities, fall festival, and Halloween.  October might be my husband's least favorite month because I self-imposed an annual tradition of watching Hocus Pocus on Halloween while eating worms in dirt (chocolate pudding with oreo crumbs on top and gummy worms swirled in).  That just happens to be my favorite tradition :-)

I really can't believe that we are in October?!  Seriously, where does the time go?

Faithful Obsession

I'm still obsessed with polka dots and I can't deny it.  I used to struggle with the thought of wearing polka dots to the office and how to make them look professional.  As a young attorney, it's important to me to always remain professional and how I dress makes a difference whether that's fair or not.  My love for polka dots is undying and some may think it's too busy to double up with the pattern but I like it.

Flower Power

Lucas came to visit me at work last week!  Our assistant buzzed my phone and said that there was a potential client in the lobby needing me to help them with a family law issue.  We do not take appointments this way so I thought it was odd but because I was on the speaker phone, I couldn't say no.  When I got to the lobby, she said there's your client and it was Lucas in his stroller!  We ate lunch together and hung out a little bit so my co-workers could meet him.  He even semi matched my outfit :-)  Although it was a great surprise, it was hard to see him go back home and me stay behind.  I'm hoping this working and being away from my baby thing gets easier...

Statement Sweater

Is there such thing as a statement sweater?  If so, I think I now own one.  With the different patterns and colors going on in this sweater that I snagged on super sale from J.Crew, it's busy in a good way, I feel.  I love sweater season.  We, Floridians, don't have many days that we can wear jackets and coats but sweaters are the perfect in between.  In fact, it's very common for me to wear and see others wear sweaters and shorts together around here.  It's like we are fighting the warmth because we refuse to accept that we don't have normal seasons here... :-)

Spotty Situation

My shirt, sweater, and skirt are making all sorts of weird in these photos so my apologies.  These were taken after a long day at the office since I haven't mastered the art of having a newborn and getting ready in the morning yet.  So, I'm finally getting into a routine and it feels good.  The weather is cooling down...well, that's a lie but fall in definitely in the air...okay, probably only in Starbucks but I'm jealous of reading posts about how awesome fall is.  I'm living vicariously through you all while sweating profusely here in Florida.  Ugh.
