Blue Striped Professional

 This is what I wore my last day of work on Friday. 
It was inspired by the following photo in the April 2011 issue of Lucky of Magazine:
I initially thought I would wear my white linen pants so there was flare but wanted to keep those clean so wore my white skinny jeans instead.
 So not sure if you realize but this is the morning of my 13 hour work day. I had to go to work even earlier since I was going to leave early for my flight. The client picked me up at 6 AM. These photos are taken moments before and as you can see it is still pitch black outside!

 I brought both of these thinking I would decide which one to wear but liked them both so layered them.

Blazer - Marshall's
Sheer blouse, jeans - Forever 21
Ballet flats - Steve Madden
Cherry necklace - GlamourPops
Evil eye necklace - From Turkey of course.

Even though I left at 3 PM somehow still managed to get in almost an 8 hour day. I could feel the panic in client people's eye when I reminded them I had a 4:40 PM flight that day.
I calmed them that I was coming again next week but now both teams want me next week and they will have to figure that out.
It is nice to be needed and wanted but still I prefer my little angels wanting me more.
I actually felt this work week was less work than a week of full time mommy with kids. If however I had to work these hours and still come home at night and clean up then in the morning had to get kids ready that would be very hard. Which is making us think long and hard about realistically what kind of work hours I can maintain. Unfortunately any career job where you make good money is going to require above and beyond a normal 40 hour week.
After a 20 minute delay I landed right before kids' bedtime and was soooo happy to see them and my husband.
Went to bed early so I can catch up on my sleep a little.


  1. I know exactly what you mean about working insane hours! Us moms have superpowers, so we always somehow manage!

    Love this outfit and your take on the inspiration photo. The blues and whites always look crisp paired together.

    Hopefully you get some much needed rest! Heather

  2. You look adorable & that blazer is to die for!!! I need it!



Love to hear your thoughts...
