Super comfy swing dress. Great great basic. Definitely going to be able to continue wearing post pregnancy. Added fun red accessories to make it snazzy.
Black Maternity Swing Dress – Loft (shop same, similar, similar)
Hi internet! It’s been awhile – almost a year since I’ve posted last. I’ve been busy as always – work, travel, family, the usual. 🙂
Three quick fun updates:
- I’m in the middle of a two week trip – work in DC, weekend visit in-laws in Minnesota and then another work week in Orlando. All packed in a carry-on!
- Yesterday my awesome boss IM’ed me asking about where to buy clothes that looked older then 20 but younger then 65. Very flattered she’d think of me to ask that questions. (She’s a super cool New Yorker.) I told her about this blog and started missing posting again – so hence this post.
- I’m currently pregnant with baby #2! Due in September so almost 1/2 way there. Very excited to have another little kiddo.
Because I use affiliate links on this site (I get a few cents each time you guys click a shopping link) I am able to see a dashboard of what items were the most clicked/purchased on each week/month. I think it’s really interesting to see which clothing links you guys are engaged by and click a bunch. And then compare those to which ones you decide to pass over. Here’s the most clicked items for the past three months:

This sheath dress is one of my customer on-site closet workhorse items. When I’m not 100% sure of how formal a customer meeting is going to be – I bring this dress & then both a cardigan and a blazer to give myself two options for levels of formality with one easy switch. (Here’s the same outfit with the blazer for a conference in 2016.)
For my last day at my on-site customer meeting in DC – I met with a core team and not the wider 40 person session we’d been meeting with all week. So I went with cardigan for the more casual option with this dress.
Hi there y’all! The past three weeks have been a whirlwind of travel! Four day work trip to DC, then week long vacation to Greece (!!), then 18 hours home and then three day work trip to Orlando. Phewwwwieeee! But exciting part is I’ve been trying to take photos of what I wore so I can share them here once I have a minute to catch my breath! 🙂
So on the outfit documentation note – this outfit was worn one evening on my DC trip when I had some casual working dinner meetings with my coworkers post client-workshop. Casual and comfy compared to my client workshop outfits but not all the way relaxed to jeans and t-shirts because it’s still a work related event.
