The Last of The Time Lords...

Worn to work Wednesday, September 19




Skirt-Old Navy/Cardigan-Target/Shoes-OTBT/Jewelry-H&M, Madewell, Nana

Notice the stripe in my hair...no, it is not a blond streak...it is grey...I am just getting old and it is starting to show!
My mom bought me this cardigan recently...she said it was very "me"...I have to agree!!  I just bought this necklace at H&M...my favorite place for reasonable jewelry...but was at a loss for how to style it.  It's not long enough to be a "faux" collar on a shirt...so I styled it like any other short necklace.  I like the way it turned out. 
I find this outfit to be very "me"!


Worn Tuesday, September 19 Cubs Luncheon




Dress-Fox's/Booties-Steve Madden/Jewelry-BCBG, H&M

I like this outfit...I felt very polished and self confident in it.  But, I also felt like a kid playing dress up...
Maybe because I am only in the office part time so I spend more time in mom mode...dress more casual.  I have gotten out of the zone of "dressing up" every day and I think that is effecting how I view myself and my style.  I love those two days I spend at home with Alex...we have fun, I get to pick up Jack from school and help him with his homework...I would not trade that for anything.  But, I feel like I need to sometimes force myself so embrace all of me...not just the mom part.  I know I talk about this issue a lot, but it is a constant battle in my life.

The title of this post is a Dr. Who reference...I have been obsessed with that show lately.  I realized that I love sci-fi programs and movies so much because they are an escape...a fantasy land...where you don't have to worry about being late, where the kids are, are the dishes clean...I can just relax and enjoy!

I like the collar necklace. I have never actually watched Dr. Who, but a lot of my friends love it.

Both outfits are really great! The first outfit is definitely your style. The necklace is awesome.

Don't feel bad about the grey streak. I have one too. I hate having to dye my hair! Heather

If gray hair makes you old, then I'm ancient - I've been gray for 15 YEARS now! I actually like the streak, and it mostly looks like a highlight.

And when you say Cubs luncheon, do you mean lunch with the Chicago Cubs? Your job has such cool perks!

Both of these are such great looks. I love that Target cardigan!! I have my eye on a couple from there but can't seem to justify yet ANOTHER cardigan, haha! And the print of that dress is so pretty!

Both outfits look great on you! You indeed look very polished in the second outfit, and the cardigan of the first outfit is so chic!
