CDL Baby

Today is a typical mom day, instead of Paulie and The Situations "GTL", mine is "CDL" (chores, diapers, laundry). Today is such a packed week as we approach our next trial date in April. I have a social worker visit today and then tomorrow I have to drive 45 minutes to meet with our adoptions case worker right after carpool. Truthfully, I will be very happy when I don't have to meet with two to three different social workers a month, especially when they all want to schedule their visits in the same week. However, I do think that the meetings are the right thing for the county to be doing, these foster kids need to be checked in on to be sure they are safe.

Wishing you a smooth week.

I love that sepia and navy combo. I keep flipping back and forth between that top (I'm a c cup so I worry about too much going on in that area). Get it or don't get it? I already have a lot of navy to pair it with: blazer, cardigans, etc. Hmm, maybe during the next % off sale.

I gravitated to your grey bag. I've been searching for a grey shoulder bag. I didn't like the campo slate tote bag. Something very odd with that color or leather they used. It looked so sad IRL.

Gotta go! Puppy escaped under the gate and is running around the house looking for diapers or toys to chew.

I love this color combo too! And your purse - the gray looks great with this outfit! Hope all of your meeting go well and that things will be finalized soon.

I love the combination here, too!

I'm going to copy this look... love the combo! I hope all things go well with the SW! My day today is CDL, too! ;-)

Love your outfit!

And on an unrelated note, I got the Coach wristlet today! OMG...I am in love with it. It will be perfect for spring/summer weddings and parties. YAY! I seriously needed something like this so bad--perfect timing! Thanks again!

Perfect outfit! I have this tank too but everytime I put it on and try to wear it, the 'garland' seems to bother me!?! Anyway, I'll keep tryin' to make it work! Hopefully I can get it to look as lovely as you do. ;)

I love any post with a Jersey Shore comment :) I'm thinking I need a navy Jackie now!

Anonymous-I really love this top but being a life time member of the i.b.t. committee, I don't have to worry about drawing attention to my chest! It is on sale though...nudge...nudge....oh, and I hope you caught the puppy in time!!

App Gal-so glad you love it!!

MMM-sometimes this tank is easier to wear when it is peaking out of something like a henley or a cardigan buttoned partially up. FFF did it really well recently (what doesn't she style well??).

Thanks to everyone else and get a navy jackie if you don't have one already....I love mine!

Hello! Can you please tell us about the grey bag? Brand? Where to buy it please? Thx!

Debye said...

Anonymous, the bag is the Jenna Four Post Shopper by Nine West. I had picked mine up at Macys back in November. The style is easy to find but this color sold out quickly at our store.

Amy said...

Just found your blog and I love it! Um...please be my stylist :) Love that J.Crew Ink Dot dress...wish they still had it in stock!

Jenni said...

Love this outfit...super cute and fashionable for a day of running around and doing chores! Best of luck to you on the adoption front!! And I now need a Jackie in Navy...for sure! Is the Jackie a TTS fit?? I've tried them on at the J Crew Factory store but can't remember how the fit was. Thanks!

Anon 11:06 AM - Try a tank under the garland tank and it should work better. I had to get that sepia color (34C) and plan on wearing it w/navy like Debye did here.

Looks lovely!
