Happy Tuesday!! I hope you had a great weekend! We are back in Dallas after spending a fun time in the Midwest (Minneapolis, Madison and Chicago) for the month July. It was a really great trip, and so nice to be with family but it felt good to get back home (and back to our own beds!). Charlie still has two more weeks of summer break before Kindergarten starts, but Josh’s pre-school started yesterday. Did you see my insta story yesterday of Josh’s first day? It is SO nice to spend some one on one time with each kid. Charlie and I have a little list of things to do (like go to the waterpark) that just the two of us will do together over the next two weeks before he starts school. Now that two of my three kids will be in school this year I’m hoping to get back in to the swing of taking on some party planning jobs again. When I found out I was pregnant with Sam I decided to just focus on being a mommy until Josh started pre-school. And now that Josh is officially a pre-schooler it opens up my mornings a little to take on some new clients/projects.
This matching two piece printed set from Diane von Frustenberg is the perfect work outfit! I’m a sucker for pretty prints, and I immediately fell in love with this one. The skirt is sequined which is so fab and adds the perfect amount of fun to the look!! The joyous floral print also comes in a maxi dress for all of you maxi dress lovers. Here I decided to keep my accessories on the simple side and opted for classic black heels and black bag. These Alexandre Birman heels were on backorder for what felt like the looongest time. When they finally arrived I was so excited!! They fit perfect (I went up half a size and got an 8.5). I’m obsessed with the tie detail! And now I want them in every color (white, nude, navy, tan…).
When I buy skirts I love to get a matching blouse to take the guess work out of what to wear with the skirt. I like to switch up the looks too. This skirt is just as fab with a solid black cami or blouse. And I’ve also been wearing the printed blouse from this outfit with white jeans for a more casual look. I love the color blocking on the top, the front is yellow and the back is blue.
I hope you have a beautiful week!! I will be enjoying the week with my extremely energetic five year old! Wish me luck 😉
