Work Life

I love me an all-black outfit for the office. As far as I'm concerned one can never go wrong with something like this for a long day at work. I'm also happy to report that I've been doing pretty well so far in terms of settling into a healthier work-life routine that doesn't keep me at the office late every day of the week (which was basically what happened before I went on mat leave and which I'm been very consciously trying to correct since I returned to work). I often still bring work home but I'm getting pretty disciplined about leaving the office no later than 4:30 and then doing a few work-related things after Eleanor goes to bed between 7 and 8 pm. Fingers crossed I don't back slide!

Maintaining healthy work habits does require a significant amount of discipline - and I can see how having that discipline could be way harder if you've spent a decade on an academic work schedule (ie, working constantly) rather than just four years. I try to be pretty rigourous about when I shut my computer down, especially because I work from home - but some weeks I'm more successful than others. Either way, you can never go wrong with an all black look for a work day!

Always good to have a better work/home balance! Especially with a little one around!
And so true, you can't go wrong with all black!

I'm sure your desire to have that time with Eleanor will help you maintain your work/life balance, and that is such an awesome necklace!

That necklace stands out beautifully against the black - you need nothing more.
And I can imagine Eleanor being the best.reason.ever for getting home early !

Love this all black look, that slip dress is especially gorgeous and the boots are such a fun & cool girl touch. As for work life balance? It's such a must!! I definitely have days where I slip-up, hello working from home, but it's something I'm really trying to work on too!! xo

Monochrome outfits will always be a classic, and you look so good in black! I like your boots too :)

It's hard juggling work and a baby but it's good that you're getting on top of things and making a routine that works for you! :)

Hope you are having a lovely week so far and you have a fun weekend ahead of you :)
