Polka Dot Blues

This has been a tough week  - yes, I know it is only Tuesday!!  This is the first "normal" week since the kids just started back to school and the nanny just started back today with Gabrielle. I am trying to get myself back in some kind of routine and going to be at a decent hour, but it isn't going very well so far - ha! 

Anyway, I did get a bit of work done in my home office today (including my blog) and I do head into the actual office in the morning to catch back up with clients so that should be good.  

For today's post just have an outfit of the day to show you. This is what I wore to a recent family reunion. Comfortable, easy to wear and I just love the pop of color in the blue scarf. I think this is probably my favorite one (out of 78) - okay I don't actually know how many scarves I own, but that is probably pretty  close to an actual number! ;)

Polka Dot chiffon blouse via Forever 21(previously worn here
Black Cardigan via Target (old - previously worn here and here)
Scarf via Etsy (see it worn here)
HUE Jeggings via DSW (old)
Vince Camuto "Norway" boot (previously worn here & here)
Steve Madden fringe studded bag (previously seen here and here)



Okay so I mentioned my completely ridiculous amount of scarves (or at least I think it is)....do you have an accessory that you think you have way too many of (or you are told you have too many of)??  Jewelry, scarfs, bags, boots, etc?  Maybe my collection is nothing compared to what you have going on!  I would love to hear your answers and comments! I am listening....... ;)

    1. Thanks, Noelle. Yes it goes between seasons very easily - the shirt is also sleeveless so it is a truly year round top :)

    1. Me too, Nikki! I just picked up this incredible Steven Madden fringe purse from TJ Maxx a few weeks back and I can't get enough of it. I took it with me to New York and I was actually getting stopped by women who wanted to ask about it and compliment me. Awesome! :)

    1. Thanks, Shannon.
      I am a counselor at a pregnancy care center - part time. I am mostly a mom and a chair person with our school PTO (yep, I am the stereotypical "mom" - LOL ;)
      My husband and I also own a Real Estate company that is his full time work and used to be mine. I have had plenty of experience working from home. Best advice I can give you is to get up, get dressed as if you are going into an office outside of home and work a set schedule. You will be way more productive and your work won't linger into the evening because you let the day get away from you (lingering too long in the mornings or taking an extra long "lunch" break to shop, etc!). Good luck and congrats - working from home is an amazing opportunity! :)
