Seraphine Giveaway

I wear this gray Seraphine breastfeeding sweater weekly…I simply love it! The comfort and fit is fantastic and the button down feature on either side for access to pump/nurse is so convenient.  I adore so much from this brand, I wish I had known about it while I was pregnant….better late than never I suppose…as they have a great selection of post maternity wear as well.  I am currently obsessing over this shawl because it can be worn so many different ways well after pregnancy and nursing.  What are you obsessing over?  With a little luck it could be yours as Seraphine is so generously gifting a $100 gift card to one lucky reader.  Easy to enter below, the giveaway will be open until next Wednesday.  Good Luck:)

Sweater c/o Seraphine available here,  Vest Love Token, Scarf Banana Republic, Red Skinnies Tractor, TOMS wedges

Multi Tasking In Red

As I mentioned, I am back to “box services”and clients.  Since I work for myself, with no office to report to, my attire can be as casual or dressy as my mood.  Lately I have had a hard time, due to my 4 week post preggo body:(  Dressing can be challenging…I am too thin through the middle for my maternity wear (did you see the size of my bump, yikes) and yet not svelte enough for my pre- pregnancy wear.  I took the plunge and bought a new pair of jeans in a size I need not mention on this blog…..Something to get me through the next month or two, until I can shed the extra poundage. I went with “red” because it just seems to go with EVERYTHING.  I throw a pair of red jeans into every client box….they are truly as easy to wear as actual denim shades.  Navy, Chambray, Ivory, White, Pinstripes, Leopard…Seriously what doesn’t go with red jeans these days? Hope you find some outfit inspiration and have a great weekend!

London Times

I am totally in love with this London Times knit dress for a few reasons.
1. Forgiving on the old waistline
2. Completely comfortable for this mom on the go
3. Machine Washable
4. Easy on the wallet
5. Perfectly on trend and stylish

I was not familiar with this brand until they reached out  and made an introduction. I was gifted two beautiful dresses that will be in immediate rotation in my closet.  I chose styles that would be flattering for my “still have to lose ten pounds” figure and was so pleasantly surprised with how great the fit was.  At three weeks post birth,  I am officially back to the grind and had a boutique appointment as well as shopped for two clients yesterday. It was blissful to put on a dress and actually wear makeup!!!  It’s the small things:)  More on the casual side below, I paired the dress with wedges, a distressed belt and some fun gold jewelry.  Of course it will be fun to style it completely different and glam it up come the next wear. Hope you find some outfit inspiration!

Hallelujah for the Maxi!

We had our first official outing as a family of four to the boardwalk Friday night. After spending an hour packing overnight luggage a diaper bag for ANY circumstance that might come our way, we were off! Connor had a blast…he is now tall enough for most of the rides, so he goes on by himself…such a big boy:)  Preston slept peacefully the entire time..The cool sea air knocked him out…can someone bottle that please? To say I am tired would be the understatement of the century…Preston feeds every 2 1/2 to 3 hours so I feel like every time I lay my head to the pillow, it’s time to start the process all over again. Other than dark circles (note large sunglasses in outfit post) and a zombie like haze, things are going pretty good and we are in love with the little guy more and more each day. Sharing what I wore for a boardwalk stroll below.  Maxi dresses are my post partum “hallelujah”!  Hope you find some outfit inspiration.

* You have to check out this amazing new site, BISTM.  A place to buy, sell and trade gently worn clothes…think of it as an online consignment shop.  It is so user friendly and also really fun to “swap” clothing with others.  The above maxi dress is from H&M and I swapped it with the founder of the site, Lisa (who also has an amazing style blog Stilettos and Diaper Bags).  If you are interested in checking out her closet, click here.
