Oh hey Monday.
Lately going through my to-do list at work has made me much less anxious than the always-growing tally of things we need to do around our new house. It’s awesome and such a great change for our family but there’s still SO much to do and there never seems like enough time to get it all done. I was fully committed to tackling about a million things this weekend and I think three got done. Little victories right? And since we’ve got a snow day around here today, I’m tempted to just tackle a bunch of stuff here while knocking out work to-do’s but a day at the office seems like a much less stressful choice.
Dressing for work while pregnant has been a bit of a challenge, especially on days when I’ve got to get my act together for meetings. It’s not so bad on snow days like today when it’s just jeans + boots + cozy sweater but when I’ve got to look more polished, I’ve been sticking to a few basics: stretchy pants and easy flowy blouses (sized up to cover the bump). These Ann Taylor leggings/pants have been a godsend. I bought them in black and navy, rotating them almost every day. I snagged this striped blouse in one size up since I think I can get a few more weeks wear out of it before retiring it until after the baby arrives. It combines two of my favorite things – silk blouse and stripes – so I know I’ll be getting tons of wear out of it when I’m back to my normal size. Then I just threw my go-to Banana Republic trench over it all and I’m out the door (well, as long as it’s not frigid out – then I swap the trench for a legit coat).
It’s a Bloggers Who Budget Monday so make sure to check out all the other gals neutral looks for less (looks like me and Jacyln had the same idea!).
