Not Easy

 This is what I wore Monday to start yet another work week...

The inspiration is from Cabi's last season catalog:

Since I lost the weight this all looked a bit too slouchy and some what drab but I had very limited time in the morning so just had to accept and go with it...

The inspiration photo is much more fitted. I tried putting the belt on the outside like hers but the vest was too loose and the belt was too big to cynch up around my natural waist.

Vest - Kohl's
Top - Gap
Pants - Threadsence
Belt - Cabi
Shoes - Zara
Necklace - Forever 21

Loving You Has Made Me This Way

 What I wore on Mother's Day for brunch with family than spa with mom, mother in law and little sis.
Then movies!
Amazing weekend I had for sure...

Inspiration for this was from the November 2016 issue of People Style Watch magazine:

 Like pairing destroyed jeans with pretty lacey top and blazer....

Spa Bliss

 What I wore last Saturday as I spent such a fun relaxing day full of laughter with my 3 girlfriends at a spa and resort on Saturday to celebrate pre mother's Day...

This is what I wore after we showered and changed after a whole day of pool side lounging and spa treatments and steam room and lunch and drinks...

Then went out to dinner!

Inspiration fro Pinterest:

It got freakishly chilly here so here I am wearing a chunky winter sweater and booties...

In Trying Times, Don't Quit Trying

 What I wore last Friday...
Figured Jeans would be OK for work since it is a Friday although there are people that wear jeans and hoodies everyday!

Inspiration from Pinterest:

I feel this top should be one size smaller for it to fit better but it is such a pretty top I still wanted to wear it as is...

The coral tassel of the earrings were the perfect pop with this  pale blue top...

Top - Chicwish
Jeans - H&M
Shoes - Vince Camuto
Earrings - Baublebar
Sunglasses - Kate Spade

Thank goodness it was Friday cause this first full work week was brutal. Just a huge adjustment for myself and the family and it is not helping that we are fully booked every weekend for the next few weekends with no room to catch up...
Just trying to take one day and one afternoon and one night at a time...

Rise to the Occasion

What I wore on Thursday to work...

Inspired by yet another Cabi Fall/Winter 2016 look:

Since my blouse had touches of pink in it, I decided to go with a navy and pink combo instead of navy and red...

Cardigan - Cabi
Blouse - Target
Pants - Boden USA
Booties - Aldo
Necklace - gift from a Friend

Exhaustion is setting in fully now... I am fitting in errands and housework in the tiny time slots I have between activities and feel like I might collapse dead. Yet, I still pushed myself and went out the the happy hour gathering and am glad I did cause it was such a nice stress relief. ALthough the late night will be something I will pay for the next day! :(

Going around in circles

 What I wore last Wednesday to work again....

This was inspired by Cabi's last fall/winter catalog look:

Work was loooong. They asked me to stay late so I had to have my sitter stay late and then just bring the kids to the ice skating rink and meet me there since I work very close to that area.
Except I had no appropriate shoes or a WALLET! So not only was I not able to my sitter she had to give me cash so I can buy dinner!
