Hi guys! Today’s look was perfect for a meeting I had today. I’m definitely not trying to do too much while I’m taking time to be with Molly. But a great potential opportunity came up and I thought it was worth it to get dressed up and take the meeting. Which honestly make me happy because I’m working on stuff that I hope will benefit Molly in the long run. The dress isn’t exactly nursing friendly, but it’s so cute that I didn’t care. I didn’t need to nurse her while wearing it luckily, but if she was hungry, I just would have pulled it down in the car like I have in the past. It’s not easy but I make it work! Kevin was once again a saint and waited in the car with her and would call me just in case she needed to eat.
When I got dressed earlier in the day, I knew I wanted to have a cute/girly but sophisticated look for the meeting and this dress was perfect. I love the lace detail on the top. It pulls the eye upward and draws attention away from my big ol’ booty 😉 I’m wearing a size 8 FYI. Normally I’m a size 6 but I still have some baby weight to lose and needed a size bigger in this dress. I didn’t mind getting the bigger size because if I lose the weight I can always get it taken in and if I don’t lose the weight for a while (or ever!) that’s totally ok and now I had a gorgeous dress that fits! It’s part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Yay Nsale!) so it’s a great price too! In fact, my dress, blush jacket, and burgundy purse are all part of the Nsale. You guys know I can’t resist a sale!
The light pink/blush jacket would work for a cool summer night, but it’s also heavy enough to work in the spring and the fall. And the winter too if you live in California or the south. And I wish you could see my nude heels in these pics! They are PERFECT for a new mom (the large heel makes them SUPER comfortable) or just any woman who wants comfy pumps!
Anyway, I have to say that it felt pretty good to go to a work meeting today. I LOVE being a work from home/stay at home mom and wouldn’t give that up for anything. But putting on a fabulous outfit and getting out into the world, made me feel really good today. Like I was working toward something to give Molly a better life. And that makes me very happy 🙂

Your style strength and work ethic will show Molly all she needs to know about being a woman nowadays. Props to you as always and your making me not so terrified about "baby weight" in the future :). Thanks for sharing again <3
You look amazing and I love the darling dress! It’s fun to hear how much you are enjoying little Molly and how you are thinking of her future!
You look so great Ali!! And I’m still anxiously awaiting Molly’s birth story 🙂
Hi, Ali! I love following you and getting a peek into your life… Congratulations on baby! I love your classy and clean style. As a mother raising my own four daughters, I can so relate. Don’t ever forget this feeling of empowerment, and be sure to tap into it often.
