I've been incredibly grateful this school year to be only working 3 days a week. I have the opportunity to spend more precious time with our sweet daughter. She only has a year and a half left before she begins kindergarten and I love our library time, cooking together, and reading (so many books) with her! I even had to make her a weekly calendar so she knows when she has 'stay home days' with mommy. Don't get me started talking about her because I won't stop! Even if she wasn't my daughter, I'd still think she has such an incredible heart, smart head on her shoulders, and neat personality! On my days off of work with her, I often reach for this sweater or one like it. It's so stretchy and comfortable and pairs perfectly with jeans. I wanted to dress it up though so I paired it with my houndstooth pencil skirt and riding boots. The end result is perfect for my casual workplace.

  2. That burgundy knit looks so cosy and it's so nice with the houndstooth too! :)

    Part time work really gives you the best of both worlds, it's wonderful you get to spend more time with your daughter :)

    Hope you are having a lovely week :)

  8. I've had so much fun remixing casual pieces to make them more dressy and vice versa lately. It's just such a new way to look at what you already have. This is a great example!

  12. Houndstooth is my fave, yet sometimes it is hard to style it (IMHO!). But, you mastered this with that burgundy sweater! SO pretty! I started to stay home when my daughter was in preschool and I just loved our days and it gave me a lot of one on one time with her while her brother was in school. I love that you cook together! Cute :)

  17. I am really into sweaters with skirts/dresses this season so I was drawn to it right away and I especially like how well it works with riding boots. You melted my heart in the way you described your little one. It is a gift to have this time with her and it seems like you two are really valuing it and making the most of it.

  19. I like the sweater over the pencil skirt. That's a silhouette I haven't tried much of myself. I bet it looks equally good with jeans like you said. How great that you are getting some days at home with her. Sounds like you are taking advantage of them and soaking up the time.
