I had a lot of fun last week getting together my post to link up with Liberating Working Moms‘ Working with Style linky, so I knew I wanted to do it again this week. Be sure to stop by and check out Krista‘s post!
In last week’s post, I mentioned that I’ve been a little unhappy with the amount of frump I’ve had in my daily wardrobe since becoming a mom. But knowing I was going to be putting all of my outfits on display on my blog gave me some incentive to be more creative. And I realized that even though I do have a lot of basic pieces, I also have some really fun pieces to wear, especially now that the weather’s gotten a bit cooler.
The challenge as a working mom, I think is making sure I don’t let myself get into a pattern of only grabbing basic pieces out of my closet because I’m in a rush and they are easy. But it’s thoughtless, and it doesn’t portray the type of person I am. As we’re getting more used to our daily routine, I think this will become easier and easier.
Onto the clothes!
Top and pants are both from Lane Bryant. I bought this top after I had Noah because I wanted something that wasn’t black or gray.
These are some of my absolute favorite work pants. They are from Lane Bryant. I got the top last weekend at Old Navy during the megasale (It was only $4.48!). The tank is a maternity tank (yeah, I know, but I like the length).
The sweater is from Target, tank from Old Navy and pants from Lane Bryant.
This sweater is from Old Navy, and I hesitated about wearing it. My post-baby bod is so different that I was a little afraid of the horizontal stripes, but I think it actually looked pretty cute. Tank is another maternity tank (Liz Lange from Target), and the pants were $.50 at a salvage store (possibly the best bargain buy I’ve ever found).
This was my casual Friday outfit. I got the jeans on sale for $9.98 at Old Navy last weekend. I was thrilled! I’d been on the lookout for a good pair of trouser jeans for a while, and these are great. The sweater is from Target, and the tank is also from Old Navy.
So that’s my week in outfits!
