Well, my maternity leave is sadly coming to an end in a few weeks. I’m so grateful to have had almost six months off of work, but it’s time to go back soon.
I’m slowly getting my mindset back into working again, and what better way than to plan my work wardrobe! Since I go into the office at least twice a month on Friday’s, I’ll need a small wardrobe for those days. It won’t be difficult to put together, as we can wear jeans. So I put together a few looks to get me going.
Blouse | Jeans | Shoes
Although there are a few trends going on here, I love that they give a classic look. The peasant top is just the right amount of comfy, casual meets sophistication for work. The lace up flats are fun but still appropriate for work, and you can show them off with a great pair of ankle jeans.
Blouse | Jeans | Shoes
What says summer wardrobe more than espadrilles? I love the scallop detail and slight platform for more dressed up, casual. Pair lighter wash ankle jeans and a lightweight short sleeve blouse with statement sleeves, to complete the look.
Necklace | Shoes | Dress
You can’t go wrong with a denim shirt dress. It’s a fresh take on wear jeans to work day. I love this sleeveless one. I would probably wear a thin white cardi over it to dress it up a bit. I have been wanting denim-looking sandals for the longest, and I’ve found them in this cute pair with fringe detail. Complete the look with a statement necklace and voila!
Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and everyone is excited for a long weekend! I enjoy these holidays because it means cookout season! I like to spend time outdoors, especially when the weather is really nice.
I put together some outfits for the whole family. I didn’t go with the traditional red, white and blue this time, as we’ll save that for the 4th of July. I love Old Navy, as you can buy an entire outfit for the whole family, and at great prices! So, all of the looks are from there.
Linen is a summer staple for its breathable, lightweight fabric. My favorite silhouette is cinched at the waist, so I love this drawstring dress. Pair it with nude sandals for a casual, yet polished look.
Keep it cool during the summer day with a leightweight tshirt and drawstring shorts for dad. Pair it with slipons or sneakers to complete the look.
Shorts | T-shirt |Shoes
The same rules can apply for dad and brother–shorts and a t-shirt in breathable fabrics. I like these denim drawstring shorts, as my son has a small waist. He can get a lot of wear out of them as there is sure to be room to grow.
Shorts | T-shirt | Shoes
Old Navy has the cutest bubble rompers, and the one below is definitely one of them. I love the stripes and colors, and how cute are the sandals! Complete the look with a cute black bow (P.S. I’ve fallen in love with Baby Bling headbands as they don’t leave a mark on my little ones forehead!)
Romper | Sandals | Headband
Can you believe each look is under $45?That means you can shop the entire family’s outfits for about $150!
My favorite trend right now is statement earrings. It’s the easiest way to dress up the most casual look. You can wear them with anything from a t-shirt and jeans to a cocktail dress. Here are some of my favorite styles. I love tassels, pom poms and neon colors!
It was a busy weekend! My little man graduated VPK, and is on his way to kindergarten. Time flies! He did so great during the program. He sang with his class and was of course the star of the show 😂
To celebrate, we took him to Legoland and he had a blast! He went on 4 roller coasters like a champ. As we were in line for one of the rides, he whispered, “Mommy, don’t yell out on the ride.” Needless to say, he screamed the whole ride!
P.S. a little morning reading with baby sister 😍
Yesterday was such a special Mother’s Day for me. Olivia turned 3 months, and we had her baby dedication at church!
Here is her 3-month photo (P.S. I love getting creative with these!)
And her beautiful christening dress. It is a special keepsake not only for the occasion, but also for the blood, sweat and tears that went into finding the perfect dress!
Being a mother has made me appreciate time so much more. Not to take the little moments for granted. Motherhood is my proudest accomplishment. To help these little people become all God has called them to be is my greatest mission.
And it wouldn’t be a special Mother’s Day without honoring the woman who brought me into this world…my mother! I appreciate the sacrifices she made for my siblings and I so much more now that I am a mother of two.
Happy Mother’s Day! 💐😘💕
