The Invisible Planet Is Seen Again...

Wow...I did not realize how long it had actually been since I posted.  First off, work is utterly exhausting.  12 hour days are really long and some days it is so busy on my floor that I rarely sit down all day, except for lunch, and don't even start charting until 7:30!  Also, my style lately has been way casual... You can find me in dark grey scrubs 3 or 4 days per week...not very flattering and pretty blah.  Also, we cannot wear much jewelry, I just wear small earrings...no rings since I wash my hands approximately 20 times per day (not kidding), so I just feel so not put together at work.  Then, when I am not working, I have just had no motivation to put myself together...hence that lack of blogging!
But today, the love of my casual, but stylish outfit, made me realize how much I missed sharing my style and life rants with the small community that come visit my corner of the internet...I thank you all so much....

On to what I wore today for errands and lunch with a girlfriend...





Leggings-Vince Camuto/Sweater-Target/Jewelry-Old Navy, H&M, Black Sheep

Lately, I am learning that quality over quantity is the way to shop.  I used to buy the cheapest, but now I am noticing the quality of the fabrics and longevity of the items.  At this stage of my life, I have started realizing how important the quality of an item is, even if it is more expensive.  These leggings are the perfect example.  In prior seasons, I have rotated between three pairs of cheap leggings...the  cotton material wore thin, got nubby and lost it's shape.  The leggings in this outfit are Vince Camuto from Nordstrom's.  I was weary about forking over $50 for leggings, but once I tried them on, I started dancing around the dressing room like a loon! They are a mixture of cotton, nylon and spandex with a slight sheen (making them feel a bit dressier)...tight but not so tight I feel naked and a pants-like wide waistband, holding me in and smoothing me in all the right places.  Since I plan to wear them often, I think are definitely worth the money.  So, future purchases are definitely going to sway towards quality over price and quantity.
Since I know leggings are not pants, I plan to wear them with button ups shirts, tunics and longer sweaters.  This sweater I am styling here is a Target goodie...Bright color, patterned knit, cozy and fabulous faux... leather panels on the side...love, love, love it!!!

I am back to blogging...the break gave me time to realize what I enjoy about it and how much I missed it.  Me and my dark gray scrubs will see you soon!

I'm like that with my sweaters. If I buy cheap I just end up tossing them after one season. I really need to push myself to not fall into a style rut since being a stay at home mom. It's nice to have a reason to get dressed up!

That sweater is gorgeous! Lately, it's just maternity clothes I've been buying and I HATE spending too much money on maternity clothes. I mean, we only wear them for about 6 months! Eesh. There's nothing quite like a good pair of leggings, though.
