Howdy folks! You may have noticed that I have been a little absent in the past week. Our little man decided to greet us a little earlier than his due date. Pardon the hiatus as hubby and I learn to take care of another human being! On this day before Thanksgiving, we have so much to be thankful for and I wish you all the best for you and your family.
I discovered this in my unpublished archives. It was taken almost exactly a year ago when I had just changed roles within my company and excited to not travel 90% of the time for work. It’s nice to see that the outfit – a bolt of neon yellow in a traditional v-neck sweater and leather accents in a wool coat – is still relevant this season. It goes to show you that modern twists to classic pieces really pay off!
Like the title of this post indicates, I am a complete sucker for commercials. In a time where we have DVR, one can easily fast forward through those pesky ads. However, there are two that somehow caught my eye that is now on constant repeat in my head. Read more
A puffy vest is one of my favorite outerwear pieces. I had owned and worn the same ol’ black vest for years and finally upgraded to a new version in gorgeous green. Fortunately, it’s also one of the rare pieces that I can wear right now that is non-maternity! Read more

I can’t believe the holiday season is upon us again. This time of year is always full of fashion fun with all the parties, events, and family gatherings planned over the next few months. I am particularly drawn to a basic LBD (or LGD – little gray dress) with festive trimmings. Here are a few high-low options for your consideration, let cocktail party season begin! Read more
I am about two weeks away from my “official” due date and the days seem to go by much slower than the first and second trimesters. While I am trying to take some time off in advance to rest up, I am finding it hard to do so. Work has picked up in pace, mainly due to transitioning responsibilities prior to my leave (hence the lack of my Internet presence of late) as I try to tie up loose ends. As a result, I plan to kick up my feet and relax (as comfortably as I can) in what will be a chilly weekend. Hope you are doing something similar and staying warm. Happy weekend! Read more
Sometimes the outfit is all about the accessories. This is definitely the case with my work wear. A simple navy dress (see a non-maternity version of this outfit here) creates a perfect backdrop for layering gold necklaces and these gorgeous Valentino Rock Studs that I scored on Poshmark. It’s a great way to add bling in a sophisticated and office-appropriate way. Read more
I found this quote at a local furniture store quite fitting. Often times we spend too much time banging our heads against that symbolic wall when we should be looking at a problem in a different light. If you are experiencing a moment of frustration, let this be your ray of light. Oh, Coco you were a wise and fashionable one weren’t you? Read more
I love the first chill of the season. It’s not too cold to bear but cold enough to bring out chunky knit sweaters, cardigans, and coats. I am loving this cardigan from Zara and its high collar. It completely bypasses the need for a scarf. It’s a perfect piece for transitioning weather and a quick trip for a breakfast bagel (I have my priorities). Read more
