Hope everyone is doing well and had a great Holiday season! I am getting back into the swing of things after a nice 2 week vacation. I haven't done much the last week besides lounging around, so today was a bit of an adjustment, but I think it will be good to get back into the swing of things.
Today starts 6 weeks of OB/GYN. This is going to be a huge time period for me, as I am at this point trying to decide between this and surgery as my career, so wish me luck! I think it could be challenging at the end of these next 6 weeks to make the decision between the two. OB/GYN has a surgical aspect to it as well, but I'm not sure if it will be enough. Either way, I look forward to what the next 6 weeks hold, and my main goal is to deliver a baby :-)
Moving on to my OOTD. We just had orientation today, but it was still "business attire." I wore my new JC Natasha top in wildcat with a long cardigan in bright dahlia. I love the bright color with the neutral top. I was originally going to wear it with just a plain white cardi, but then I thought, how boring! So I added a bit of color :-) I love this top. I got it over my break. The print on it it so cute!
Next up, a review of this GREAT sweater I recently found at nordstrom. Its the Bobeau Asymmetrical Fleece Wrap Cardigan. I got this in a size small in the vanilla puff and I absolutely love it! The inside is so soft and feels great up against the skin. It has a single button closure with this adorable wooden button. This sweater is a little different from my usual but I love it. It comes in a bunch of colors, and I've been VERY tempted to grab the black and mink colors as well (yea I know, more boring, lol) The best part, its only $39.90 Currently. Personally, I think for the price, its pretty good quality. It seems like it will wear well, and not need to be thrown in the trash after just a few washes. The arms are kind of slim fitting. They were fitted but comfortable still on me in the size small. The medium worked, but I thought there was too much fabric in the rest of it when I sized up. So if you want the arms a little looser fitting, you might want to try going up a size. You should definitely give it a try!! I paired it with my JC leggy denim jeans from last year. I must say, I kind of forgot about these pants and how ridiculously comfortable they are! If you don't have some I highly suggest trying to get your hands on them because they are by far the most comfortable pants I own!
So this year, I'm going to try and post more. My goal is for once a week. We will see how that goes, but hopefully I can keep that goal!
Also, Shoppingwithm had a GREAT idea on her blog here of doing a little post with some guidelines/plans for buying in the next year. She did this last year and re-evaluated those plans in her post today. This seemed like a great idea to me, and this year I realized (well maybe I already knew) that I have a huge shopping problem. So keep on the look out for another post in the not too distant future with my plans for shopping in 2012! Thanks M for the great idea!
Have a great day!
