Back to winter on the blog today…but at least the sun is shining! How has everyone’s week been? I’m excited because today Zain and I are headed over to my friend Lauren’s house to hang with her sweet boy Magnus and our friend Laurie. I love these afternoon play dates to break up the week and since Trevor is working late all week, it helps a ton!
I’ve found it’s important for me to make a few plans outside of work and being home with Zain but not too many. It’s such a hard balance and has taken me a while to work through. I was getting overwhelmed in the beginning keeping him on a schedule and still trying to get out and have a life. Now that he’s a little bit older it is a tad easier with his nap schedule and I try to plan 2 things a week to keep us busy and so I can still get my work done. Any other work from home mom’s have any tips? Send them my way!
Today, I’m sharing a trend I wasn’t sure I was on board with until I saw this sweater. It keeps coming back in stock and selling out so quickly so if you happen to catch it, grab it! I loved the berry color for the holidays but have found it easy to wear all winter long. It’s nice for dinner’s out or day dates because it’s not as suffocating as a giant sweater once you get inside somewhere.
I kept it simple and paired it with my favorite black jeans, over the knee boots and this fold over clutch I don’t use nearly enough. I searched the web for some other bell sleeve numbers I love and rounded them up below!
What do you think of the trend?
