I was pretty happy with my ten outfits. Some were very conservative, some were a little more fun, some were dressy, some were casual and others were in between. I loved every one of them (except for the one that made me still look pregnant. . . , but that was the photo's fault, not the outfit).
These are things I can wear in my normal, parenting life (how bizarre is it that I'm better dressed now as a stay-at-home mom than I was when I was a working professional? Very strange).Oh, you wanted a blow-by-blow of each outfit? I thought you'd never ask.
I love love love this outfit. My favorite black shirt, plus some fun pants. It makes me feel artsy. In a good way.
This is the outfit I feel most myself in - I just really love a black shirt with jeans. And the leopard shoes which will have to pried off of my cold dead body.

I also love wearing all black. And a pencil skirt makes me feel like a person who doesn't buy all their clothing at Old Navy (even though I totally buy all my clothing at Old Navy. On the clearance rack).

I prefer a pencil skirt with heels (to avoid stumpy legs), but I think this worked reasonably well. (Note to self, buy some leopard heels).
I swear, these pink pants just make me happy. But perhaps it's just the whole wearing-pants-without-an-elastic-waistband thing. Also, the me of two years ago is gaping at the fact I'm wearing not only colored pants but also leopard shoes. Self of two years ago? You know nothing about awesome.
Last time I wore my hair in a ponytail, Ella kept grabbing my face and saying, "You cut your hair?" Also, this gold belt was the best impulse buy ever.
I tried this dress on when I was about 4.5 months pregnant. Yeah. . . not happening. And I can't actually wear this dress currently due to the nursing situation. I will just look longingly at it hanging in my closet.
I love this purple sweater more than I ought to. And it was FOUR DOLLARS. Did I mention FOUR DOLLARS?
This here is the pregnant looking picture. Skip.

Ignore how white my legs are. I'd claim it was because it was January, but. . . they'll be exactly this shade in August too. I love sunscreen and I hate laying in the sun (I also hate lie/lay. I can never remember which one is the correct one. I generally just change the sentence to say something like "I hate resting in a sun chair. . . " and avoid the whole dilemma).
And now a cookie for you for making it through this many pictures of me. While you eat your cookie (hopefully it is a really really good chocolate chip cookie), go check out Merrick and Landen's outfits:
