Spring {Work} Wardrobe

Let me preface this post by saying that I never buy an entirely new wardrobe for every season; however, thanks to an entirely new post-baby body, spring sales, coupons, and lots of birthday money I made an exception for this spring out of both necessity and desire.

 Someone went shopping today during lunch and FINALLY had some success.  Seriously, I was beginning to think that I would never purchase another article of clothing for myself because no matter what size I tried on nothing seemed to fit correctly.  To say that I was beginning to develop a complex would be a bit of an understatement.  Enter the fabulous Express and The Limited. 

Here's what I got from The Limited.

And I can't save the pictures from Express, but I got this sweater in conch and black, this top in mauve, and this dress in black (this one's not really for work).

I was so excited to finally have work clothes that fit me properly again that I wanted to change before I came back to the office!  And other than the one sweater from Express (and the crops, but they don't count IMO) I didn't do my patented "Oh, I love this so I'll buy it in every single color!"  Although, I still didn't stray from the "I only buy solid colored tops" mentality, but oh well! 

What do you think?  What's on your spring wardrobe wish list?

Happy Tuesday!

So cute! I know I am having the same trouble finding clothes...I find myself wanting to buy work clothes all the time b/c that is what I am programmed to buy. I don't need business clothes though...I need casual since I'm a SAHM. I did find a few items at The Limited and Express as well though!

Good for you! Glad you got some new clothes...the perfect "pick me up" for any new mother. I went through the same funk post-baby and thought I'd never pull out of it. I did, and you will too!

Good for you! I bought a bunch of new clothes from Ann Taylor and Loft before going back to work. All my pants/skirts still fit, but tops and dresses needed to be bigger and button-down for nursing boobs. Unfortunately, they'll all have to be altered when I quit nursing, but whatever :) still nice to have something new!
