– Black cowl neck sweater from Ann Taylor
– Black pencil skirt, also from Ann Taylor
– Black cami from Second Base
– Black tall boots from Ros Homerson
– Gold “twig” bangles and a hammered gold knot necklace (both from… shocker… Ann Taylor).  Wore the necklace under the cowl so it just peeked out a bit on the side
– Hair wavy/curly, slightly smoky eye

– Teal shawl collar sweater from Banana Republic
– Black cami from Second Base
– Black trousers from Talbots (completely forgot I had these – put away my husband's dry cleaning and found them)
– Black city boots from David Tate
– Silver and green/blue cuff bracelet and earrings from Anne Koplik

Well I am right now with wet hair and in my husband's bathrobe but think I will be wearing my purple cowl neck sweater dress from Banana Republic and my black tall boots!  Better hop to it, I need to leave in less than 30 minutes to be at work on time.

Tomorrow is my birthday, and I have an INSANE day at work that starts at 7am and ends around 6 or 7.  Le sigh.  My husband is hoping he can stop by later in the day after my first meeting is finished so he can show off Emerson and maybe take me to a late lunch.  Best present ever!  After a year, we have yet to bring Emerson to the office and my coworkers are constantly on me to meet her.  Anyway, I am going to treat myself on my birthday to wearing jeans – very likely the new ones from Not Your Daughter's Jeans (man, if they WERE my daughter's jeans they would hardly fit my hand!).

    I’m really glad that you’re still posting.
    Sometimes when I’m out shopping, I’ll see something cute and think “this would look so nice on Allie”, like you’re my IRL friend or something. 😛
    I know how hard it is to be a mom and still find time for our own interests aside from our children.
    Keep up the good work. You’re doing just fine. 🙂
