Back To Work (Sort Of)

In early October I started going into work one or two days a week for a half day (sometimes a whole day) – I work in a small office, I’m the Executive Director, we didn’t temporarily hire anyone to fill in for me, and, quite frankly and at the risk of being labeled a bad mom (trust me, I have encountered people who seemed pretty judgmental about this), I was pretty sure I would come close to losing my mind if I stayed home full time for my entire eight month maternity leave.

And starting to go back into the office was every bit as magical as I thought it would be! I like my job, I love my co-workers, and I almost always feel challenged and engaged at the office – I’m so happy to have that time every week to step out of being a full-time caregiver and engage with adults again. Anyways, this is what I wore for my first official day back. I’m obsessed with the sleeves on this dress…

All the Frills: Progressive Books

I am so stoked about Eleanor’s awesome book collection (these photos are just a snippet - some of the titles are obviously geared for babies and toddlers, others will be for when she's a bit older - and I've got a ton more like this).

Heels Almost Never

I don’t wear heels much (I’m just vastly more comfortable in flats) but I definitely have a soft spot for these ones. You can’t tell from these photos but in they’re a beautiful, rich navy colour and surprisingly comfy. It’ll snowy and icy here now so I guess I’ll have to wait a few months now before I can wear them out again – I’m glad I slipped in a wear!

All the Frills: Velvet Crush

2018 is the year that I get more velvet things into my closet. I’m going to start with these little gems found on the ModCloth website. Do you have any style resolutions this year?
