Here I am. In my third week of trial. Taking a picture of myself next to haphazardly-hung towels. That is how half-assed this shot was. I'm tired.  Glamour.

Navy suit + b&w stripes and black pumps = easy peasy.

Weekend Wear: Date Night

Let's mix things up a bit. This Saturday I got to take half a day off from work (so luxurious!) and actually got to go out on a date with my husband who, at this point, hardly believes I exist.  A nice respite in preparation for another week in trial....

For date nights and weekend wear I tend to be pretty boring. Read: black and denim, always.  But for me, comfort is key and I never feel prettier than when I am comfy! :)
Top: J.Crew (similar)
Jeans: Gap (similar)
Shoes: Asos (not that similar but same shape and would have been cute with this)
Necklace: Madewell (similar)

We are alive....

...or at least partially, anyway.
Sorry for the long unexplained hiatus - though its far from the first time it's happened around these here parts. Ha!
Between our instagram account randomly breaking and not being able to figure out how to fix, Karen going on a trip to France (oh la la!), and me being in trial prep hell for the last month, the blog definitely took a hit.

Anyway, trying to get back at it. I am now in trial in San Bernardino (almost as glamorous as France!), and it is projected to last another 2-3 weeks so the craziness will continue.  In the meantime, I thought I would share how I am styling my three suits over three weeks - not very creatively, unfortunately.  Deep apologies for the crappy sideways pic... will try to get some better ones as this continues....

Here is what I wore on day 2 of trial - muted grays and florals.

Shoes: Jessica Simpson (suede alternative)
