Office Style

I had a post started about pumping while traveling when I realize how boring that would be.  Instead, you are going to be subjected to what I wore while I was in Denver and working in the office.  That is much more interesting right?

Please keep in mind that I have no sense of style.  At all.  I buy and wear what I like and looks somewhat flattering on me.  I also have a crappy camera and can't figure out how to turn off the flash so you get pictures of the outfits but not me wearing them.


I was traveling this day so I needed something fairly comfortable and would hide stains in case I sat in something questionable.  In the end, my outfit was fine but my shoes were painful.  Don't buy new shoes before a trip without breaking them in!

Top:  Apt. 9 from Kohl's
Pants:  Dress Barn
Shoes:  Kelly and Katie from DSW

Close up of the shoes.  Although cute, very painful!  This lady isn't used to wearing heels anymore.


Another pants day.  Another day for uncomfortable shoes.  After Tuesday I decided that I needed some more comfortable shoes so I made the trek to the mall and bought some.  Pathetic.

Tank top:  Merona for Target
Cardigan:  Merona for Target
Pants:  Apt. 9 for Kohl's
Shoes:  CL by Chinese Laundry

I was going to wear my cardigan unbuttoned but since the girls are huge because of breastfeeding and a creepy coworker, I decided to keep it buttoned.

Close up of the cardigan and the shoes.


Thank God for flats.  I have had these shoes for a while and they certainly came in handy.  The top is also a maternity top (shut up, it's comfortable) but you can't tell when I am wearing it.

Top:  Maternity from Kohl's
Cardigan:  Apt. 9 from Kohl's
Pants:  Dress Barn
Shoes:  Mootsie Tootsie from Kohl's

Close up of the shoes:


You can't see the beauty of the shirt in this picture but it's super pretty.  It's silk and very flattering on.  It covers my belly that I am still trying to get rid of (stupid c-section).  The skirt is outside of my clothes comfort zone but I think it looked nice on, plus it's in the trendy color blocking pattern that is going on right now.

Top and skirt:  Dress Barn
Shoes:  Bandolino from Macy's
Necklace:  Kohl's

Close up of the necklace and shoes:

The shoes have a snakeskin pattern to them and they are VERY comfy.  Thank goodness!  And I am not sure what the deal was with my shoes but if you notice, they are all patent leather.  


I was traveling this day and wanted something comfortable to wear.  I have a hard time wearing dresses because of my body shape.  I am a plus-sized pear.  I usually have to wear wrap dresses in order to be able to wear one at all.

It's hard to tell from the picture but the dress is actually in the blue and purple family.  I paired it with a tank top because it is fairly low-cut.

Dress:  Apt. 9 from Kohl's
Tank top:  Mossimo Long and Lean from Target
Shoes:  Bandolino from Macy's
Necklace:  It was my Memere's.  It's a gold leaf.

I wore more jewelry than these pictures show.  Most days I wore earrings and a ring too.  I just didn't take pictures.

It was nice to dress up for the week but boy, I am glad to be back to my jeans and t-shirts that I wear on a daily basis.


  1. Very cute! And I see no shame in the maternity top. I was going through my mom's old clothes when I was about 11 and found a sweater I loved. Turns out she wore it while pregnant with me. I still wear it to this day. Maybe this winter I'll get to wear it for its intended purpose...

  2. I'm not buying the "no sense of style" thing -- love all of them. The shoes are all especially cute -- sorry they hurt, though. Oh, and love the line about "the girls." :p
