dotty, techy pants, and worky neutrals

wintry mix
[wearing]
jacket: zara
top: ministry (c/o)
pants: ministry (c/o)
heels: bcbgeneration
bag: everlane

[three things]
1. Oh hi!  Anybody else surprised by my sporadic posting?  I'm not.  Baby+work=no joke.

2. The folks over at Ministry of Supply reached out based on my love of neutrals (it's like they knoooow meee!) and sent over some samples.  While I'm new to world of pants in techy fabrics, I am definitely a fan of this high-waisted no-wrinkle pair.  And this shirt has been beating out my similar silk version since it is way less prone to stains and is machine washable.  

3. The bangs are on hiatus.  I feel like they'll make a comeback though.  Maybe this Summer?

dotty, denim, and almost denim

december outfit [wearing] 
jacket: banana republic
chambray shirt: old navy
jeans: joe's
heels: bcbgeneration
bag: everlane

[three things]
1. Caaasual Friday for the win.

2. Jeans with heels seem to feel like the right combination of looking like you tried on a Friday.

3. I've had a string of Fridays with no client meetings and boy, it is super nice to finish the week by checking a bunch off things off my to-do list!

dotty, wool blankets, and shiny pants

december outfit
[wearing]
cardigan: vince
top: loft
leggings: ross
flats: cos

[three things]
1. I bought this cardigan a size up when I was preggers and this winter I am very happy that this giant blanket exists in my closet.

2. Is it too much if I'm wearing a blanket cardigan and flats that look like slippers?  I told a co-worker the other day that I only buy clothes that feel like pajamas.  I was kinda kidding, but really not so much.

3. Big stripes and tiny spots would definitely make the pattern mixing all-star team.

dotty, really tall boots, and really long cardigans

december outfit
[wearing]
dress: j.crew
cardigan: old navy
bag: everlane
boots: old navy
necklace: target

[three things]
1. Hello!  It's been a minute, eh?  If you want to catch up on the places I've walked and a bajillion photos of my baby, then those two things are very well documented over on the 'gram.

2. These extra-tall boots recently joined my closet as part of my new-coats-and-boots-make-winter-slightly-better plan.

3. This dress has been in my closet for years now (evidence!) and that makes me strangely proud that I might just be finally making better purchases.  There were way too many years when it seemed like I was continually cleaning tons of stuff out of my closet that just didn't work out.  I still have to move things along, but the quantity is waaaaay less.

dotty, cardicoats, and coatigans

the fallness
[wearing]
dress: loft
giant cardigan: cos
boots: loeffler randall

[three things]
1. Fall booooots!

2. Can I just keep the weather where it's crisp enough for big sweaters and boots, but not tights and hats?  Please, Midwest?

3. This cardigan is on the border between sweater and coat--which makes it perfect for a cold office since wearing a legit coat all day makes typing much more difficult.

dotty, crisp white, and...well, a bunch of dots.

the fallness
[wearing]
dots top: catherine catherine malandrino
jeans: vince
flats: vince

Since any "three things" commentary would mostly be about how I managed to successfully not impale any toddlers at daycare this week while unfolding Maddie's stroller or how baby food bananas smell really good, we'll go with a little more structure for today's post.

creative: This top seems like the prefect combination of pattern and texture.  And yeah, I like me some dots.

young: This is essentially just jeans and a white top, but the longer sleeve length makes the top a bit more serious.

professional: This was a Friday outfit, but it could have been another day of the week with no client meetings since my office is pretty casual.  (Or I could just swap the jeans for some gray dress pants.)
