Shoes: GUESS (via DSW)
This outfit is the product of a hopeless paralyzed morning when I could find nothing to wear. I was frustrated so I gathered myself and focused on basic choices. When you're feeling lost, just choose the basics. I'm so glad I did because I LOVE this outfit!

Tights: TJ Maxx
I snagged this dress for a little bit of nothing when I was preggo. I thought it might work okay with the bump, but I didn't have much luck with these natural waisted pieces. Now that the bump is an adorable little boy I'm giving it a shot. I love the emerald color and the fabulous lacy texture. Yay for texture!

Blazer: Jennifer Lopez (via gift)
Leggings: TJ Maxx
This orange blazer was a gift from my mother a few years back. It is a great shape, fits me like a glove and made from beautiful fabric. I wouldn't normally wear "leggings" to the office (when not pregnant), but there are only 3 of us in the office most of this week. Also, I won't be seeing any clients today, therefore I'm a little more lax with my "rules". Does anyone else break their own rules?

T-Shirt: TJ Max
Boots: Carlos by Carlos Santana (via gift)
It is sad that we lost our playoff game over the weekend, but I really like what I put together for the Friday before. Or as Indianapolis-ites like to refer to it -- "Blue Friday". Austin also got to wear his colts blue on Friday! Don't worry, we'll have better "Luck" next year. #punintended
I like the way the blazer makes this outfit more interesting. Without it, I'm just wearing jeans and a T-shirt.

I actually had fun wearing this. Wearing the cardigan as sweater is a great option if you're breastfeeding!
Trying to get dressed while the wee one is still sleeping or playing happily adds a whole new dimension to choosing clothes. I think I'm making simpler more classic choices, and I'm cool with that. Today it is one color on top and one color on bottom. I'm not sure what kind of a magician I must be to have managed to get these tights and shoes together in the same outfit. It is magic.

Skirt: J. Crew
Tights: TJ Maxx
Boots: GUESS (via gift)
Getting dressed and out of the house is still a challenge. My love bug is not super predictable so we just try to do our best in the morning to get out the door. Stripes are the perfect basic. There's not a lot that is exciting about this outfit, but the perfect print and the snazzy boots bring just enough interest to the outfit to make it work.

Shoes: BCBG Girl
Another cold cold day means another day with many layers. I'm getting pretty good at it. I find myself reaching for this sweater every time it gets cold. It is just the prefect classic print and color combo.
The 2nd week back at work is underway, and the little monkey is always trying to be a good helper when I'm trying to get us both out the door.

I just want you all to know, my mother is a genius. I have been sad that breastfeeding basically means that I won't really be able to wear dresses for as long as I'm breast feeding (hopefully a year!). After hearing my whining she found this fabulous dress that works perfectly for nursing! A deep zipper on the front - so genius!
Here is my morning helper watching a little morning news while mama takes her blog photos! Think I can teach him to take my photos for me?

Top: Jennifer Lopez (gift)
Pants: TJ Maxx
Boots: GUESS (gift)
It is so cold. I'm wearing 2 pairs of pants. In real life I left the house WAY more bundled up than this. I threw on a scarf, but it didn't make the photo. I'm still figuring out how to get out the door in on piece, so expect me to be a bit disheveled until I can settle in.
Maybe I should rename the bloggy "Disheveled Me". Not quite as catchy.

Sweater: TJ Maxx
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
It is outrageously cold, and these are the warmest "dress" pants I own. they are a fabulous thick fabric AND they are lined with something warm. Every time it is this cold I reach for these. Today I got fancy and put on a belt. I wanted to wear the sweater tucked in, and I felt like it looked like it needed a little something - que hot pink skinny belt!
