I quit my job after Some Boy was born, and I actually do miss the world of women's work clothes. It was fun sometimes, getting dressed up for big important meetings. Fortunately I work for myself now and still do have the occasional meeting outside of the house, so I get the best of both worlds. I've been online shopping like crazy lately (longing for the day when this NEW baby bump won't be such a hindrance!) and my wish list is now about a mile long. Which is convenient, since I'm sure we'll have ALL sorts of extra cash after the second baby gets here. SAR-CASM.

Here are a couple of my favorite women's work clothes styles for the season

Women's work clothes: accessorized basics

Stylish basics: Merona Women's Long Sleeve Pullover Sweater ($20 at Target), Merona Women's Patch Pocket Plaid Pencil Skirt ($23 at Target), Women's De Blossom Theresa Zippr Heel ($35 at Target), Jennifer Loiselle The Mitford Gold Diamond Bib Necklace ($110 at Boticca). Change the sweater out for a flirty top and you're ready to go for date night.
