Back To Work in Polka Dots

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

It is hard to believe I am officially back at the office and Eloise is now four months. I didn't think it would happen but I actually missed wearing office appropriate clothing during my maternity leave. As a matter of fact most of my purchases this past two months have been for work outfits. I spotted this dress while shopping for holiday sweaters and loved the navy/polka dot combo. Fits true to size, it is machine washable and does not cling to the body. Paired it with my Natalie Flint Emma pump, most comfortable heel EVER. I also gifted myself this Clare V bag I had been eyeing since forever; it was my back to work love LOVE IT! Throw on some classic Bobbi Brown lipstick and boom! Ready for work {after grabbing my venti Starbucks of course because baby}. 

Happy first week of December!

Dress sold out in a week but I linked something similar. Most importantly, get $50 dollars off a pair of Sarah Flint shoes with code BANICOLE50. 

Dark Florals

Friday, October 25, 2019

This post makes me so happy. It is my first non-pregnancy style post since last October; it's hard to believe it's been a year since I last shot without a bump. Time goes by so fast!

Ever since Eloise was born I have been sticking to button down dresses and tops, makes breastfeeding so much easier. I spotted this adorable dress during one of JCrew's initial fall releases and was immediately drawn to it. I love the dark florals for fall, flowy bodice and length.  I'll be able to wear this well into winter with tights and booties. I paired it here with my Sarah Flint Natalie flats which I now own in black. I just LOVE this shoe so much, so classic, chic and super comfortable. And though I rarely carry a purse these days, when I do it's a cross body style bag for sure. I got this Lo & Sons bag last Novemeber before heading out to Denmark, it is the perfect travel and city bag.

Happy last week of October!

Hello Eloise!

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

It's been two months since our sweet Eloise was born. We have been submerged in restless nights and unpredictable days but would not have it any other way. I wanted to have newborn pictures of Eloise taken in the comfort and intimacy of our home so we enlisted the help of our talented wedding photographer and friend Heather Curiel. We were lucky to have a full house filled with grandparents {and lots of helping hands!} so I was very excited to be able to create memories of Eloise's first days with family. 

Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Madewell Summer Sale

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Mid-Summer {or in retail world End-of-Summer} sales are my absolute favorite. I know everyone is going crazy about the Nordstrom sale but I'm over here geeking out at the prices from Madewell and JCrew because a lot of their pretty summer pieces are deeply discounted and with an extra 30% off on top of that, so rare for Madewell! I am a bit embarrassed to admit I have placed 3 orders in the past two days, can't blame me! I'm so excited to wear non-maternity clothes soon. Some of my favorite include the pink t-shirt dress with puffy sleeves, the tote bag that fits my entire world in it and that silk wrap dress which would be perfect for newborn pictures. Can't believe I'm already planning on that! 

Hope you're enjoying your week as much as I am. I am working from home my last few days in the office and it feels so good to prop my swollen feet up. Happy Wednesday!
