My version of Work-At-Home Mom Fashion

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Working from home doesn't have to mean sweats and a 't' the entire time. I admit, when I wake up, I don't feel like busting out the Chi and makeup, but for me - it just gets me motivated and feeling good after I do. So today, I decided to dress up like I would if I were "going into work." This was coming home after picking up my little man from the babysitter. Full day of work - check. Kiddo happy - check. Mommy feeling fabulous - check.

As a side note - I don't wear spanx or kimora or any other body shaper...I find them uncomfortable and to be honest - it puts the fat where I don't want it to go - LOL. Just being real here!








Outfit Deets:
Blazer - Torrid size 3
Top - Lane Bryant size 22
Pants - Lane Bryant Houston Trousers in Red 7 (always buy a size down on these - trust me!)
Shoes - Payless size 11Wide
Necklace - Cookie Lee from a tradeshow
Handbag - Liz C from Ross
Sunglasses - Curvy Girl Clothing "designer inspired"...I never pay for actual designer sunglasses - I'm way too hard on them.

  8. You look fantastic - especially love the curvy shape that your belted jacket creates. I don't wear Spanx very often, either - and you certainly don't need them!
