Well, it’s the new year and that means that I return to work in only three weeks!  Time has really flown.  It seems like just yesterday that I left work to go on maternity leave, and on the other hand, it seems like 3 years ago that Scott and I were living a life without a baby (even if he is only 10 weeks old).  I know it’s going to be tough to leave Bryan in someone else’s hands but I’ve gotta bring home the bacon (or at least the eggs that go along with the bacon so to speak).  Along with my new year’s resolution to keep my head above water and to continue blogging despite having an infant and a full time job, I’m also hoping to clean up my wardrobe.  Being pregnant and now having someone else to think about gave me a chance to re-evaulate my current closet situation.  Easy separates that are durable, classic and well tailored are now the name of the game.  Time to throw out the trendy items and start afresh with pieces that will stand the test of time and work for both the office and the weekend (for me, this means biting the bullet spending a little more dough on staples).  Here’s a little work ready outfit I came up with.  I love the cut of the blouse (perfect for the post baby tummy).  The pants are a classic as are the booties which I already own.  Just add a few bangles and some statement earrings and a workhorse bag.
