So much for Makeover Monday!!!

WOW am I tired!!

I had no idea that I would be this worn out after 8 hours in an office!!

I have one question.....

 Who came up with fluorescent lights?!?!

They should be shot!!!

About 2 hours in and my eyes looked something like this...

Hopefully it doesn't take me to long to adjust!!!

Last night before work I worked on this great blog post showing you one of my makeovers 

along with a peek into the new work wardrobe.

Only one problem


and I weren't getting along.

More than half of my pictures wouldn't load.

Right now I am entirely to tired to try again.

Honestly it was less of an effort to type this new post and load one photo from this morning

So here you have it......

My first day into the world of working Mothers.

Funny thing is after all the new clothes shopping I did, I went with a dress I've had for quite a while.

This is a Max Studio dress I purchased from Nordstroms rack.

The dress original cost $198.00

Nordstroms rack was selling it for $35.00.

It had the most hideous bell sleeves on it when I bought it.
I knew right away a $20.00 trip to the seamstress and I'd have a great dress for under $60!!

The shoes are Adrienne Vittadini.

They retail for $79.00

DSW had them for $59.95 but I actually found them at Marshalls for $30.00

Not bad right??

The bracelet was an unexpected gift that arrived in the mail a couple of days ago from my Aunt Ruth.

She's an amazing women and I was just so touched to receive an unexpected gift from her.

Here's a close up...

Alright, that's it!!

Keep checking in with me!!

There's still the furniture makeover that I didn't get to show you plus MANY more outfits including
one of my favorites!!!!


By the way,

Thank you so much for all the kind words you've all had to say about my ventures back into the work force.

I really appreciate each and every one of you!!!

You look great! Nordstrom Rack and Marshall's TWO of my fav stores! Can't wait to see your TP outfit!

* Wolf whistle * You look great! You know silly me... I just found out there is a marshalls nearby lol. I always shop Ross and TJmaxx because they seem to be on every street corner. But I hear Marshalls carries some better brands. I can't imagine the toll your first day took. Overall how do you feel being a workin mamma?

Been thinking of you!!

Leanne said...

Check you out!!! Well, I bet when you walked in that office was like, "Uh-oh... we're in trouble now!! She means business!!!" Or maybe they were like, "Hey, check her out! She's TOTALLY COOL!!!" or perhaps, "Wow! I love that dress! Where did she get it?!?" Oh, gees, Ang - I'm having another Random Thinking Moment. This time, in honor of you! ;)

Have a great week!!!

Marcie said...

Knock'em dead kiddo! Office work and motherhood, let's hear for the sister's. Here's to you!

Wendy said...

Wow Angie- a gift from Ruthie is a god shot for your new day! She's so full of positive energy- I hope it helped your " new girl at work" woes! I hope you adapt more quickly- but big transitions- like starting homeschooling, or going back to teaching after being a stay home mom, took me a good month to adapt! Hope it goes smoothly for you and you find more moments of interest or happiness than stress or guilt!!

You look gorgeous! I know! Flourescent lights! WHY!!!! And we look awful in that lighting too!
That was sweet of Aunt Ruth, that bracelet os so pretty.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Angie~ great comment! Yes, check out her site . You won't be sorry!
We are blessed they are healthy and shouldn't complain that maybe they aren't perfect. My sil can also see if there is someone in your state that sells them as well.
