The secret to dressing comfy but classy at work

My office is a casual work environment but I still like to look professional. My secret? Adding a bold statement necklace to comfy clothes! They dress anything up! My shirt is a plaid cotton button down from my BFF, Target. I scored a deal on this Amrita Singh necklace from Rue La La at 4 a.m. one morning when I was on maternity leave with Luca. Valued at around $120 and I got it for like $18. Go me.

Working Mommy Guilt

I have serious working mom guilt and feel like I’m not spending quality time with our baby. I usually work from home three days a week, but lately I have to be in the office three days a week, so I’m only home with Genevieve two days. I know, I’m fortunate enough to even be home those days, but it’s a big change. Our weekends are getting super hectic. When you have things to do, people to see, events to attend, etc. you’re not getting that important one-on-one playtime with your baby. She’s just coming along for the adventures and having fun. We’re super lucky that she is so well-behaved at restaurants and is friendly with new people. However, at parties, etc. friends and family want to see her. And there goes the mommy time I so yearn for all week long with my social butterfly. When I get home at night from work, Baby G is ready for dinner, her bath and a bottle. She sometimes gets cranky and just wants to cuddle, which of course …


When I left work yesterday, I was so excited to go home and play with my baby girl. But when I got there, all she wanted to do was eat dinner and cuddle on the couch until she fell asleep. I’m not one to complain about laying on the couch and cuddling, but I get sad when a day goes by and I don’t get to see her smile or laugh. I feel like I’m missing out. I’m sure my fellow working moms can relate!
