When I first transitioned from pre-baby life in the corporate world to my new life as mom and full-time work from home gal, I had a little bit of a style identity crisis. Besides my body going through changes and sizes, I certainly didn’t have use for all the corporate dress clothes that I wore before baby. This prompted me to clean out my closet and only keep a few dressier items and fill it in with much more casual items. I’d still call it a work in progress.
But for the times when I do need to look a bit more dressed up, I reach for items like these: my trusted pants from The Limited (I have in navy and black), a classic sweater (love this bright pink!) and completer pieces like my olive cargo vest and a necklace (with some sunglasses thrown in for good measure that matched all too well…) Whether it’s for church, a party or baby shower, date night or work event, it’s nice to have some staples on hand that will work.
Speaking of getting more “dressed up,” I am headed to California for a work conference this week- eee! The dress code is still fairly casual, but I wanted to look fairly professional since we have a booth there as a vendor. I did pack along this sweater for one of the days. If I get my act together, I’ll do a post on what I wore while I was there (or at the very least, will share on Instagram, so be sure to follow along!)
