Office Casual

Sometimes, okay, all the time, it's nice to be a little more casual at work on those days you plan on getting tons of work done.  I'm trying to tackle my never ending to-do list so that I can be more efficient at work.  I'm probably in the minority when I say that I love having lots and lots of things to do at work.  Not only does it make my day go by faster, I so look forward to winding down at home and feeling accomplished.  On these busy days, I like to dress down as much as I can without wearing sweats to work.  Sweats and the courtroom?  Not a good look.

Reason #354,890 why I hate laundry...I shrink my clothes.  Hence, the cropped sweater look that was not done on purpose.  Sadly, my only yellow sweater has been retired since this is the only way I could possibly ever wear it.  Oh NO I have to buy another yellow sweater!  But seriously, I do and I'm loving these: J.Crew,  J.Crew Factory, and GAP.

Tray Decor

Slowly but surely, I am emptying out the boxes in the garage and using old and new things to decorate our home.  Three things I have discovered going through my boxes and new bag purchases (shhhhh, don't tell the hubby!) is that I have way too much of and therefore love too deeply trays, ginger jars, and metallic decor.  However, my ginger jar and tray obsession is off the charts.  Most of my trays actually have sentimental value as they were either gifted to us for our wedding or are silver platters belonging to our grandmothers.  Then there's the Homegoods and Target treasures sprinkled in.  I happen to love home decor posts and/or blogs so I hope you enjoy as well!

In case you were wondering why I am such a weirdo and have a huge restaurant menu blown up and put on my wall, right after my husband proposed to me in Central Park, he took me to Tiffany's then we had dinner at Serendipity's.  It was such a magical night so we bought the menu the restaurant was offering that night and when we moved into our new home, I had the menu framed and put in our dining area.  

The tray above is a gold beauty I found at Target this weekend and the one below is from Hobby Lobby.  The Hobby Lobby tray was green so I spray painted it white so that it matched everything else.  

The two trays below belonged to our grandmothers.  If anyone knows how to clean silver, I am all ears!  These trays could use some cleaning but I don't want to do anything that ruins them.

Below is a frame I picked up at Hobby Lobby over the weekend which, of course, had to be mine because of the sweet doxie that looks like my Mia.  I spray painted the frame gold since the wood frame didn't really match anything else.  Love!

I've posted three times this week!  YAY!  I'm so happy to be back to a blogging schedule and I've even indulged in a little shopping for myself this week.  I've mentioned this before but it's been two years since I've shopped for myself.  With the exception of buying items here and there, I haven't really bought myself clothes, accessories, etc since before I was pregnant.  I started working out, controlling my to-do list at work, and suddenly gained a new interest in taking care of myself.  I now know how important it is to take care of yourself as a key to happiness.  I have been so consumed with my beautiful boy and juggling motherhood with being a working mom that I have let myself go.  I am my own worst enemy but I am working towards eliminating negative thoughts.  By doing so, I can say I am in a happy place.  See, I can get deep here on Dainty and Decadent!

Baggy Cardi

Did I set out the buy the baggiest pink cardigan I could find?  No.  But I don't hate it.  Sometimes it's the simple outfits that I love the best that don't translate the best in photos.  Cardigans, big or just right (can't say small because I hate things that are too small) are my staple items.  I wear one probably every day during the work week because it completes everything for me.  So Grandpa-big cardigans don't disappoint me at all.  But I am now on the hunt for a smaller-ish sized cardigan.

Weekend Photo Diary

It was another Disney weekend for us and this time we went back to Hollywood Studios.  This once was our favorite park to go to because of the thrill rides but, now, with a toddler, it's probably our least favorite to take him to.  That's not to say we didn't have a great time!  Since there's really only one ride Lucas can go on, Toy Story, we decided to take on most of the musical shows.  We sang our hearts out during the Frozen Sing Along attraction and Lucas was really into the Frozen show as with the Disney Junior show where he tried to run up on stage when he saw Jake the Pirate.  He must have felt bad for acting shy earlier when we tried to take a picture with Jake  He's usually really good with the characters but this time he was super shy around Jake and Sophia the First.

Toy Story and the Frozen show were a hit!

Since my mom came with us and got an annual pass for herself, my husband and I were able to go on the thrill rides.  I've become such an old lady and complained about the nausea from the Tower of Terror ride and neck ache from the Star Wars ride.  I'm getting too old for fun, I guess ;-)

Oh and we completely decked out in our Disney shirts and didn't feel bad not one bit!

My Shirt:  Forever 21
Lucas' Shirt: Kohls
Husband's Shirt: JCP
