A week and a half into our quarantine, I’ve been making it a point to create as much normalcy throughout my day as possible. It’s the least I can do throughout all of this uncertainty while balancing work and kids at home! One way I’ve been doing this is by making sure I actually get dressed in the morning. The first few days working from home last week, I wore a lot of sweatpants on repeat. This ended up getting old because I realized pretty quickly that they were making me feel sluggish and unproductive. Sharing a dress with you today that I’ve been living in instead. It’s just as comfy as sweats but it looks and feels more presentable–especially on all of my zoom conference calls (AKA the new normal)! Styling it two different ways below while social distancing.
I’ve been on a quest to revamp my entire denim wardrobe for a few months now (more about that here). After my “fourth trimester,” it was so difficult to figure out what actually fit and what I would feel most comfortable in. Post-baby, pants were the hardest part! While I was no longer prego, I still had a bump and buttoning pants was the worst. Sharing one of my favorite pairs of white denim I scooped up recently. This pair of pants is so versatile, perfect for the office and thanks to their high waist, I found them to be a lifesaver post-baby too.
If there’s one print I’ve been buying on repeat this spring, it’s blue and white stripes. I love that it’s classic, chic and that it goes with everything. I scooped up this comfy button-down shirt a few weeks back from Madewell and I’ve been pairing it with everything ever since. Rounding up my favorite blue and white striped pieces today as well as details behind where to snag this outfit.
My hubby and I bought our first home right before Naiya was born. While we couldn’t be happier, the only downside is that my commute to work ended up doubling. There’s only so much music you can listen to for an hour-and-a-half each way and so many people you can call. When I went back to work after maternity leave, it was clear that I needed to find something that would keep me occupied during my super long drives. After asking everyone around me their favorite audiobooks and podcasts, I started downloading right away like it was my job. I’ve now become completely obsessed. Rounding up my favorites you need to know about today as well as details on behind my outfit of the day.
This spring, I can’t get enough of safari-inspired linen. From easy, breezy jumpsuits to classic button-downs and matching sets, I’ve been pairing linen pieces with everything. Naturally, when I saw this white and pink striped linen dress, it was love at first sight and I couldn’t wait to try it on.
