WIW 4/25-26: Black, white & grey for MOTG and work

Departing from my usual colorful style, two monochromatic looks inspired by the foggy Bay Area mornings. Getting back into the swing of things! Baby is 7 weeks, and I can't believe I'm already back at work! Kinda sad that I couldn't stay home longer (I was off 12 weeks with the first two). Just a half day for the first day back which was nice. I had to schlep all my pump parts and pump at work (I pumped at work for about 13 months both times before, and nursed at home for 2-3 years). Hopefully I'll be able to find enough time to pump and get enough milk for the baby. I just realized that I won't be able to wear my dresses as much now because it makes it more awkward to pump.
Thanks for looking and commenting!

    I think you look wonderful and I think you are wonderful to make the effort to do the best by your wee babe.
    I like that you are inspired by nature in your clothing choices. I have been reflecting on this ever since the Picture Perfect Challenge but I haven't put any ideas into practice to date.

    Natalie, you look wonderful - I love the monochromatic looks of both of these outfits! That tree branch skirt is so sharp! I can't believe that 7 weeks has passed already; how do you do it?
  • Ingunn replied 7 years ago
    You look wonderful as always, Natalie, and I admire you for giving your son the best possible start in life.

    I LOVE THE NEW FRINGE. It was made for you :)

    (And I love how you just wear white jeans no matter what - MOTG of three little ones and stylish all the way. You do not let your clothes boss you around). 

    You are inspirational in SO many ways, Natalie. You just get on with it!!! Full time job, family outings, three kids, newborn.....


    Oh yes! I will get to your wonderful outfits here too :). Loving #1! Abolutely KILLER. And #3 is not far behind! Fun to see you in black and white!

    You look great!

    I know you are often very colourful, but you nailed two fab looks here in monochrome. You look stunning. Your skirt is so unusual in #1.
    I love your new fringe too :)

    Keep fringe unless it causes maintenance issues!

    And I'm joining in the applause for the super stylin' mint-new mom of three, with great admiration and awe! I feel like it's all I can do to get dressed in something I can nurse the baby in, most days, at four weeks. How DO you do it, Natalie?! Whew!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago
    I so love that skirt, Natalie!! Amazing. And it's fun to see you in these fog-inspired outfits. They fit the landscape perfectly. 

    Congrats on going back to work, although I know that must be bittersweet.

    Love how you have styled the skirt with the jacket. 
  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    I love both outfits. You are looking amazing!

    Gosh, it's hard to go back to work, isn't it?
    You look fabulous in your black, white, and gray outfits, and I LOVE your new hairstyle, too!

    You look beautiful.  Love that skirt.  Aren't those play mats the best?
