Watch Mom Work...

Reality...this is my standard work wear...nothing real earth shattering, but I try to be real.  I hate to admit this, but I went through my closet last night, I realized there is not much I "need" for my fall and winter wardrobe.  I am still on the hunt for a camel pencil skirt, black cardigan and a white button up shirt...I think I am pretty good besides that.  Since my clothing budget is not what it used to be, I think unnecessary and mindless clothes shopping will be coming to a halt...never thought I would say that.  I have no rules, but I am tightening the purse strings for awhile...unless I "need" it, it stays at the store!

I have a meeting tonight at Jack's school to talk about the reading program.  For some reason, I always feel like an impostor at those meetings.  Like I am playing dress up and pretending to fit in...it is sort of an out of body experience...

Both cute looks but I especially love the first one and that ON blazer! Hope you got it recently because I just might have to copy!

I like your oxfords!

I still think your "standard' is most people's "cool"

You look so professional and pulled together in that first outfit. Believe it or not, this is most of our standard outfits. We are real (and a lot of us moms), so it's all good. I love your style!

I love your first look - the pencil skirt with the exposed zipper and the piping on the blazer are always the kind of details I look for - ways to take a basic piece and make it seem like so much more.

I can't possibly recommend Target's cardigans enough - you can get a decent black one for $20 or so.

Love the skirt in today's outfit!

love your work outfits! I feel the same way about all the winter items I want!

spend the money, go to brooks brothers and get yourself a white button up shirt. You will not regret it. They have the best button up shirts!

Yay! A no-shopping (or limited-shopping, anyway) buddy! We can do it :)

I adore both of those skirts, by the way...just gorgeous!
