Naptime Reading Material


There are definitely days when I miss work.

As a stay-at-home new mom in the middle of winter, there are mornings when I wake up and long to put on a pencil skirt, blouse, and peep toe heels and go to a PAC event without a burp cloth in my purse.

So, until I get a new job or figure out how to dress up without ruining my clothes with Lansinoh, I've been living vicariously through 9 to 5 Chic.

Written by Ahn, who works in medical device sales in San Francisco, 9 to 5 Chic is full of posts of her personal style with an emphasis on creative, but work-appropriate outfits. I love her use of silky blouses balanced with tough ankle boots. She also has a great mix of high and low fashion...great shoes and bags, filled out with pieces from Zara and Forever 21, and solid basics.

Further, the temperate San Fran weather which is always evident in her pics makes me long for spring. Yesterday someone told me spring doesn't appear until LATE APRIL in Pittsburgh.

Save a blouse for me, Barney's!

If you have some time for reading (I remember what it was like when my little boys were infants... I don't think I read for two years) and if you miss putting looks together, I would love some advice. I have to wear a horrible back brace 24/7 for two months. And in addition to being a mother, I am a former hill-staffer-turned-lobbyist so yoga pants for two months is not an option. I always loved your blog and ideas...would appreciate your input. You can follow my ideas so far at http://stylingmybackbrace.wordpress.com

Know exactly how you feel, with a young daughter myself, always taking a nappy bag around or getting food stains on my clothes because of my daughter. You definitely can't wear good clothes. But hey they won't be small forever will they.

Yeah that outfit is great. Love it.

This thread has great information on shopping. A friend of mine told me about this cool app that allows you to get instant feedback from your Facebook friends on whether you should buy something or not (for themselves or as a gift). Here's the link - I think the app is coming out around Black Friday but you can sign up now:
