Love Is All You Need

Sweater: Forever 21  /  Shirt: J Crew  /  Skirt: Motherhood Maternity  /  Shoes: Stuart Weitzman  /  Handbag: Chanel  /  Accessories: J Crew, Ebay, Stella and Dot, David Yurman

Happy Valentine's Day!  I wore this outfit on Sunday and thought how Valentinesy it looked then I remembered that Valentine's Day was today!  Oops, pregnancy brain.  So I'll be wearing this again since only like two people saw me on Sunday.  Does anyone else do that?  

Today is extra special because, fingers crossed, we find out the baby's gender at our appointment this morning!!!!!!!!  I'm so excited I can barely stand it!  I've been reading online how some women drink Mountain Dew or something really sugary to make sure the baby is alert during the appointment.  I'm going to play it safe with some orange juice and hope for the best.  I have a feeling it's going to be a boy but will be very happy either way!

Bows, Bows, Bows

When I think of yellow and black together, I think of a bumblebee and not in a good way.  Yet, I always gravitate between pairing the two colors together and it isn't until I've been in the outfit for a whole workday that I think, "man, I look like a bumblebee."  Maybe I'll remember to pair yellow with something different and that's a big maybe seen as though these days I've been shampooing my hair three times in a row because I forget whether or not I've washed it or not.  Oy vey...

Devil in Me

 Dress: Target  /  Handbag: Chanel  /  Shoes: Sam Edelman  /  Accessories: Gucci Sunglasses, J Crew, Stella and Dot, David Yurman, Elizabeth Cole

I'm trying my best to channel this outfit from the movie "Devil Wears Prada."  That is one movie that I could watch over and over and over again.  One of my husband's pet peeves is that I can watch movies over and over again without getting sick of them.  But who can resist not watching films like Legally Blonde, Devil Wears Prada, Bridget Jones, and 500 Days of Summer three times in one day?  Am I right or am I right?

I normally wouldn't post such an ordinary outfit post like this but I've been getting questions on how I've been dressing the bump for court/suit outfits and this is it.  I think I've discussed how particular I am about dressing for court but to sum it up, I always feel the need to dress my most professional--fashionable or not.  Obviously, I prefer to look stylish but, honestly, clients pay their hard earned money for me to represent them so when it comes to dressing for court, I dress for the job not for me.  Maybe that will change more as I grow older but, lately, it has definitely changed as my bump grows larger.  I like to tuck my shirt in for court but that just isn't possible anymore.  Now, I can't tuck my shirts in and my jackets don't button up.  But that's okay.  Before pregnancy, I felt more comfortable going to court with my shirt tucked in, jacket buttoned but now, I'm more comfortable with a loose fitting shirt and my jacket undone.  I think Judges understand too that I don't mean to disrespect the court by not buttoning my jacket.  

I thought a lot about this last week when I was sitting outside the courtroom waiting for my case to be called.  I looked down and saw my jacket unbuttoned but knew I could do anything about it since I haven't purchased a maternity suit.  Maybe a minute later, my stomach felt like popcorn popping inside which I thought was odd until I remembered that I'm not alone.  There's a little baby in there kicking and moving around and it's the first time I'm literally feeling it!  Doesn't that just sound so cheesy?!  It really is what I thought at that time though.  It was a good court day.

Warm Winters

Sweater: Gap  /  Skirt: Gap Maternity  /  Scarf: Target  /  Handbag: Louis Vuitton  /  Shoes: Sole Society 'Kelly'

The top part of this outfit was copied/inspired by an outfit from Outfit Posts (love her blog!).  My husband asked me if it was necessary for me to wear a scarf.  Well, even though I'm not wearing tights nor wearing a jacket, the scarf was completely necessary.  If it hits below 70 degrees, I consider that to be winter...the kind of winter where I can wear flip flops but still need a scarf.  Any other Floridians agree with me?  There's got to be someone that agrees with me...

Practical Love

My husband and I have become quite the practical gift givers.  He gave me a Clarisonic Mia and he bought himself a vacuum.  I say he bought himself the vacuum because I could never bring myself to spend as much as he did for a flipping vacuum.  Since it is our finances, you could say my gift was that I would stop stopping him from buying the vacuum.  He had his mind set on a Dyson vacuum which of course we had to order because we couldn't find the one he wanted locally.  The man literally said to me, "I can't wait for the weekend to be over because I'm that much closer to getting my vacuum."  And that people is love.
