Finally feeling better. Thank goodness. Mama and baby were not getting much food for a few days last week. Plus it is awful to be sick on your first week of work and wonder if you are going to get fired. So good news is that I am not fired and I'm back for week 2 at new job. Plus I have accepted that it is still winter here and have now brought appropriate apparel. No bare legs for at least another month, maybe two. I've got sweaters, hats, tall boots, and tights. I'm set. Oh yes, and I've remembered to bring my space heater to work.

Jenn, my fabulous coworker, told me that I needed to take a picture of this outfit. Here I am in all my glory of my new photo studio aka the bathroom. Oh yes and someone else even asked me for the link to my blog so Hi Pakou, if you are reading!

Here's what I'm wearing on this lovely sprinter (spring/winter) day.

Shoes: Can't see them, but don't worry. They aren't new. I hear your feet change sizes when you are pregnant. Can you guess how much I look forward to that? NOT.AT.ALL. Anyway, they are the BCBG patent platform pumps. Love them. So comfy. Or as comfy as 4" heels can be.
Pants: That I barely fit into ... Limited.
Turtleneck: Express
Cape: Express. I love this cape. I love it so much that I bought it when it wasn't even on sale. Do you know how many times I've worn it. About 4. Sad. It's a hard piece to wear in MN. It has to be just the right temperature. You can't wear this with a coat over it because it becomes awkward to try to get your arms out of the cape and into your coat.
Hat: See? I brought a hat this week! And I wore it! Handmade by ... ME! So crafty I am.

Enjoy your Monday!


  1. So cute and Congrats on the pregnancy! All the best and hope you're feeling better!


  2. too bad the window in the bathroom is behind you ... the lighting will make it so much harder to see all the cute details ;)

  3. If it makes you feel any better my shoe size didn't really change much while pregnant. Towards the end my feet were swollen and I felt better in my larger sized shoes, but afterwards everything fit again :)
