I have had this top for a few weeks (from Banana) and while I love the bell sleeves – my brain has a hard time figuring out how to coordinate outfits with looser tops and narrow pants with out feeling bulky on top. (Turns out I basically just have to be feeling somewhat skinny and wear really high heels and then it’s all good.)
Monday morning get $#%@ done outfit. Black & blue for the win!
New comfy fun blue trousers from Banana Republic (on sale!). I’ve been wearing lots of ankle pants lately and I forgot I feel taller & leaner in boot cut trousers. Yay for hiding the extra lbs I’ve been putting on with tons of travel food and nonexistent exercise schedule!

But if it makes anyone feel better I’m also not working out, seeing friends or sleeping all that much. So blog land isn’t the only neglected corner of my life.
Hopefully I’ve rounded the scheduling corner (now only traveling every other week) after the 6-trips-in-5-weeks-then-a-sick-toddler whirlwind I just survived.
So this dress from Banana Republic is the best. It’s not too tight and not too loose. It’s not too long and it’s not too short. And it has a pretty ruffle. And I also feel a little like a cute 60s stewardess. One easy piece and I’m dressed? Sold!

I got a big new work project and have traveled on five work trips in the last four weeks. It’s been insane.
It just hasn’t been possible to lug my personal laptop along with my work laptop – and so my blogging has totally dropped off. (Even though I’ve been taking SO MANY fancy hotel/bathroom outfit shots. Lol.)
So I have decided to test out a less labor-intensive and easy to do from my phone new blogging style where I just mirror my outfit (instead of a celebrity inspiration) and don’t include shopping links or info where I purchased stuff. (I’m thinking you guys mostly stop by for the pictures anyway!)
Then at least I’m posting something. And I can do it in my “free” time during taxi rides & layovers & such. (This project & my travel will last into 2018.) And if days magically get 28 hours in them or I have a normal free moment then maybe I’ll squeeze in a “regular” style post when if can. But maybe this middle ground can work for now? Thoughts?
I wore this outfit for a executive planning meeting with the higher ups at my new client. Pink blazer is new from Banana and I am sort of in love with it!
Ok – I lied – here’s a link to the blazer.
