All smiles because it’s Friday! Lots of new faces over here so I wanted to introduce myself. I’m Lauren - a mom, marketer by day, and blogger by night. I love talking about new #momlife with my #motherhoodmondays series and enjoy #stylingmorewithless - like these @oldnavy velvet pants that I styled three ways on the blog this week! Now, tell me about you 🤗
I’ll take all the plaid button up shirts this time of year, especially this year since they’re #nursingfriendly! // I’m so excited that tomorrow is Friday - the end of my first week back at work! Who else is ready for the weekend? 🙋🏽♀️
12 days until Christmas! Who else is not ready?! We haven’t gotten a tree, I’ve bought zero gifts, and I still need to send our Christmas cards 🤭 I’m blaming my unpreparedness on being a mom! Anyone else feel behind this year? // I actually think we are going to skip the tree this year since it’s so close to Christmas. We were going to get it last Friday, but if you read Saturday’s blog post, then you know my Friday was a disaster. If we had gone to get a tree, I would’ve worn this 👆🏻 these $20 target boots were made for tree farms and the snow 🎄❄️
Being back at work has me thinking about office appropriate looks. If I did go into an office (I work from home most days), I’d definitely wear something like this! I bought this @loft dress for our Christmas card photos and love that it’s classic enough to style so many ways #stylingmorewithless
Today I went back to work after 24 wonderful weeks of #maternityleave. While change is never easy and I wish I could be a SAHM, I’m so thankful for the leave I had and for the wonderful benefits my job affords me (hello working from home)! Sharing all my thoughts on going back to work in today’s #motherhoodmondays post if you’re interested!
This snowy weekend in Atlanta made me want to just cozy up in my favorite pajamas with a cup of coffee and stay inside snuggling baby Andrew ❄️// I shared a fun #christmastradition on the blog tonight! I’ll give you a hint, it’s all about holiday pajamas. Learn more about our tradition and shop my favorite pjs including these from @oldnavy on the blog 🎄
I’ll take all the velvet hair bows please! 🎀 I found this one at @oldnavy for just $5 🤗 Such an easy way to feel more put together! Happy Sunday!
Do you ever find a piece of clothing that you can’t stop wearing? That’s how this velvet skirt is for me! I’ve worn it so much since I bought it and am sharing how I restyled it for a more casual winter look on the blog today #stylingmorewithless Also if you want to read my “fun” experience with the Atlanta #snowmaggedon2017 yesterday then you’ll want to read this post 😂
Need help planning out what your family should wear for their Christmas photos? How about what you’re going to buy your husband/boyfriend/SO this year? Then check out the holiday tab on Midtown Magnolia where I share gift guides, what to wear guides, and outfit inspiration! // P.S. Here’s a sneak peek of our Christmas card photos! 🎄Andrew is typically all smiles in front of the camera but it was freezing the morning we took these so he wasn’t too happy. I still love how they turned out though! 😍
My favorite job (and my full time job for the past 24 weeks - I go back to my real full time job on Monday 😭) has a dress code. Every day I have to think about whether my outfit is nursing friendly. For the most part, I’ve gotten it down to a routine uniform - high waisted jeans + tees or sweaters, shirt dresses, and button downs have become my go-to looks. For the holidays, however, it’s been hard to find dressy, festive, nursing friendly outfits. If you’re a #nursingmom in the same boat, then be sure to check out this week’s #MotherhoodMondays post on the blog!
