LWD & Chambray

Dress:  Loft  |  Denim Jacket:  Madewell (J.Crew's is also SUPER similar)  |  Shirt:  Gap  |  Shoes:  Sam Edelman  |  Necklaces:  1/2  |  Ring:  Gorjana  |  Watch:  Daniel Wellington  |  Bag:  Serpui  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban  |  Bracelets:  usual stack


One dress, two looks with this jean number.  I probably haven't tied a knot with a shirt since I was like 7.  I'm pretty sure I also used to use those plastic items that you would loop a shirt through to give a side pull or something of the sort - kinda like these!  I had to upgrade my chambray top due to nursing, but I needed one anyways.  It was definitely necessary because before I was so nervous that my crossbody bag would open a button or something, but now it's on lock.  I also invested in a jean jacket.  Like I said I'm trying to build a capsule wardrobe and add in fun items, but keep the basics.  I don't think I've ever owned a jean jacket, but I shopped around and decided on this Madewell one.  It was between that and a J.Crew which was pretty identical.  The Levi's one was a bit off and looked a bit momish!  I'm happy to have found it though!  Anywho - I'm off to my 10! year college reunion and I'm so looking forward to this weekend catching up with my girlfriends...although it'll be super hot there and the perfect weekend here for once!  I guess we'll have to make it a blur. ;)  Happy weekend!

work week

Blouse:  Loft (similar here and here)  |  Denim:  Banana Republic  |  Shoes:  Dolce Vita (similar here)  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban  |  Bag:  Cult Gaia  |  Earrings:  Loren Hope  |  Ring:  Gorjana  |  Braclet Stack...the usual  |  Necklace:  House of Harlow 1960


I feel a little scatter brained writing this post, so I apologize.  It's Wednesday and I'm ready for the weekend.  Primarily because I have my 10! year college reunion with my girlfriends this weekend.  I'm SO looking forward to it.  It'll be my first weekend/day away from Liam for the first time other than daily things and even though I'll miss John and Liam, I know it'll be good for me to have some time of my own.  It's also my second week back to work and I've obviously grabbed a couple of new tops and a new pair of dress pants (it's way easier to pump in pants/top than a dress - FYI).  Plus I've pulled out a few tops I hadn't touched in months that are fitting much better now being a few months pp!  Work has been a bit hectic settling back in, getting into a routine with Liam's daycare and John's health - John had surgery last Thursday on his wrist and is on the mend.  So I've been trying to keep the house in order, enjoy time with Liam and prepare for the weekend ahead.  The doctor said it looks up that he could possibly play ball by August so I hope it heals well and quickly.  So with that being said, I'm getting back to enjoying time with the boys before I head out.

back to work

Top:  Loft  |  Blazer:  Banana Republic (old - similar here)  |  Denim:  Banana Republic  |  Sandals:  Jack Rogers  |  Sunnies:  Celine (less expensive here)  |  Earrings:  Lisi Lerch  |  Watch:  Daniel Wellington


Somehow this didn't post Tuesday, so it's going out now and some details have changed, but will update you all on the next post!

This is a perfect number for my office, it's pretty casual and low key as we're all pretty busy and it's a relaxed atmosphere.  So, I won't get too into the outfit, it pretty much explains itself.  Instead MDW details...I was supposed to go back today, BUT John broke his wrist yesterday and I have to take him in to get checked out.  Hopefully it doesn't require surgery, but we're both pretty bummed because it's boat and baseball season.  Not to mention my last day of maternity leave that I wanted to enjoy with the two boys, but spent it hustling the day from the ER back home with nursing and naps and then food prepping, cleaning and lawn items...whew!  Thankfully John was super helpful (not that he isn't, he was just more-so) with supervising Liam while I could do a few things even though he was in some pain.  I still plan on dropping Liam at daycare and it'll be nice to get him situated.  I will pop into the office at some point if I can get myself together since I'm pretty thrown off.  Nothing like a great start to being back at work, so here's to hoping things look up this week!
