Going back to work has been bittersweet. Sure, I miss the grins and giggles of my littles [I certainly don’t miss the meltdowns], the schedule we kept, and the glorious nap times where I caught up on my shows. However, there’s something to be said for getting dressed every morning and for me, it feels damn good to wear [and have a reason to] something other than some variation of jeans and a t-shirt every day.
Once I knew I was office bound, I stopped at the Banana Republic Factory store because it’s amazing. The prices make me giddy and the clothes make me feel pretty. I tried on almost every single pair of skinny slacks they had [are people still using the word slacks?] and left with a pair of black Sloan and Navy Ryan pants [because my husband gave me “eyes bulging out of head” eyes when he saw 3 additional pairs of pants in my hands]. The “Sloan” says on the label it is their sexiest fit yet and I will just say, I don’t hate anything about it! First day jitters don’t stand a chance in these pants.
Even though I haven’t been blogging lately, I have been capturing all of my #ootd’s. As I find the time to sit down and edit pictures, type a post and then splash it all over the inter-web, you will be able to find my office looks right here.
