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!

Shell:  Loft  |  Denim:  Banana Republic  |  Mules:  Target  |  Bag:  Serpui  |  Necklace:  House of Harlow 1960  |  Earrings:  Loren Hope/Amazon  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban  |  Bracelet Stack - the usual  |  Ring:  Gorjana


Ok this number just screams Memorial Day!  Honestly I love the flutter sleeveless look and the eyelet (haha see I'm loving eyelet look lately).  I'm going to embrace these next couple of days before heading back to work Tuesday, so I mean what more can you say about the weekend?  Hit up the sales, the sun and enjoy the BBQ's with your friends and family.  MUAH!

sunny days, spring dress

Dress:  Loft - I cut off the strings hanging on the v-neckline  |  Mules:  Target  |  Hat:  Banana Republic (similar here) |  Necklace:  House of Harlow 1960  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban  |  Ring:  Gorjana  |  Bracelet Stack:  the usual ;)


Light and breezy is what I'll need in the coming weeks as I get back to the grind.  This dress will be perfect with a light cardigan or blazer on it.  I've been loving lavender colors lately and I was happy to come across this number from Loft.  Remember I said Loft has been so good lately!?  I love this shirt style dress, which I may swap out this belt for a woven brown one.  I also clipped the strings off of the collar - they were weird, stiff and ended at my chest.  Remember the yellow shirt like dress...yeah I should have removed those tassels too!  Liam has officially been in the 6-9mo clothes range and he's not even 3mo!  So yes, he looks like he's busting out of these which I put away late last week.

the newest accessory

Trench:  Banana Republic  |  Denim:  Banana Republic  |  Blouse:  Macy's (similar here)  |  Earrings:  Bauble Bar  |  Loafers:  Sam Edelman  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Bans  |  Purse:  Kate Spade  |  Ring:  Gorjana

Liam:  Ralph Lauren Romper (gift - similar here)


I think Liam is catching on...  The shopping and the photos, he's in for it!  Crying when mama is just about to try on clothes and tuning out when getting a photo taken.  He's a boy's boy, that loves his mama - haha.

I've been kicking it with these loafers a lot lately.  They are my go-to.  I think I'm also trying to work on a capsule wardrobe.  So just the classic basics, with a few fun items that will work for years to come.  So I'm starting with shoes and working my way from there.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We're in full force of planting and gardening this week that we've made multiple trips to the garden centers.  Here's a cute everyday basic look for your spring (more like summer) season!  PS Loft is on fire right now with their clothes - sometimes it's a hit or miss, but RN it's a hit!

first mother's day

Dress:  Ann Taylor (sold out fast, but may be back in stock check the site - it was just there recently)  |  Wedges:  Dolce Vita (similar here)  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Bans  |  Earrings:  Lisi Lerch  |  Purse:  Serpui 


Last weekend I had a shower to go to so I shot this look quickly.  I was in a hurry to spend time with friends and it was such a nice weekend!  I've been loving midi dresses, especially flowy ones as I get back track on losing baby/ice cream weight and fitting into my normal clothes.  There have been so many summer sales, but make sure to keep an eye on Ann Taylor and Loft!  Today should be beautiful, so I'm looking forward to having mother's day brunch at home rather than bearing those crazy crowds (#banbrunch) and just relaxing around town as John is off this week.  It's a little crazy to think that I'm celebrating this holiday at 31, but I'm thankful to John and Liam for making me a mama.  I'm sure you'll see more of what we're doing through stories on IG.  Enjoy your day with your loved ones.
