This week has been a real ‘get it together’ kind of week. For the past couple weeks, I’ve had so much random stuff going on with work, the blog and life that I haven’t really had time to slow down and enjoy maternity leave. This week I made the plan to focus on getting organized with work to do’s and bills while also trying to get our house in some sense of order so I can really make the most of these last few weeks of leave. It’s been mostly a success. My house doesn’t look like a tornado ran through it. I’ve made it through the giant stack of mail that was silently lording over me and I’ve caught up on some things I’ve wanted to do on the blog – namely make a major step in re-designing the site.
I know that I just overhauled the site not too long ago but there’s been some things I didn’t accomplish in that re-design that I’ve been really wanting to address. I thought working with another programmer to get it all accomplished would work but it wasn’t quite right. So in true Danielle fashion, I’ve decided to give it a go myself. I’m giving myself a deadline (and announcing it to you all here) of getting the new look together by the time school starts in mid-August. A fresh start for the fall. This means I’m teaching myself some coding and learning A LOT by trial and error. Wish me luck. If you’ve got any tips, feel free to send them along.
But enough of all that. Since I’ve been trying to get a ton of stuff done, I haven’t had a ton of time to think about what to wear. And so, I turn to the classic staple – jeans and a white top. This peasant top that I snagged at Banana Republic (but is unfortunately sold out – linked to lots of similar options below) really elevates the look over just a plain white tee (which, duh, i love too).This outfit is probably going to get pulled back out this weekend for the Fourth of July – just maybe add some red earrings or go with a red bag for the full red, white and blue combo. Also, I know I’ve talked a lot about this bag but I can’t help it. It’s so cute, fits so much stuff and looks way fancier than it is. The pink is sold out but it’s still available in a dark brown and I may end up getting that one too since it will be perfect for fall.
Anyways, back to taking care of business before the long weekend…
p.s. – Ditto is a sunglass subscription service – like old school Netflix – where you get a new pair of sunglasses whenever your fancy strikes. You can swap them out whenever you like and it’s only $24 a month. Lots of great brands like Ray-Ban, Prada, Karen Walker, Burberry and more. You can get your first month free with code LOUWHATWEAR. I’m obsessed with these sunglasses and may never send them back.
