Inspiration Monday - One day at a time

Hey all!  I'm still here!  No baby yet.  I get the feeling I'll be more or less kissing my due date with this guy, but you never know - we're getting snow this week and sometimes barometric pressure is helpful.   For now, since I have no baby, I still work.  And I love that I could easily dress for today's Inspiration Monday with two birds - simple, classy outfit from Olivia Palmero here.

So my take was really quite simple and is pretty much my uniform all the time now - leggings, maternity sweater, and flats.  But hey, at least they are fun flats, you can't beat red shoes right?

Did all of you here in the US have a nice Thanksgiving weekend?  We sure did.  It was a relaxing four days. We had dinner with the Pants Monkey's extended family on Thursday and went to another get together with his family on Friday as well.  He had an aunt in town who lives out in Maine, so when she comes for holidays we squeeze in as much time as possible with her.  Earlier on Friday I had an entire day to myself, so I chose to stream movies off of Amazon - they added some good ones from the 90's, such as The Birdcage.  I hadn't seen it in forever, so that was a treat.

Sweater - Oh Baby via consignment
Leggings - Simply Vera, Kohls
Shoes and Necklace - Clothes Mentor 

The rest of the weekend we just took our time and unpacked some more baby things, watched movies, ate out, did all those things we won't be able to do as easily in a couple of weeks!  We're just going one day at a time and I'm ok with that concept!  At least working is a good distraction if nothing else!  And so is Cyber Monday - I'm going to try to get some Christmas shopping done today!  You have to love the internet!

I hate to beg - but if anyone still wants to send me guest posts I'd still love to have them!  Please and thank you!
