It's been a busy week so far. My husband has been out of town and I got the crazy idea that I wanted to see if I was able to handle being a 'single parent' for a week. He travels up to 40% of the time so I know that I am going to have to figure out the logistics of it all at some point. Being on maternity leave for a few more weeks gives me a little flexibility for a potential nap here and there so I thought why not? Well he comes home late tonight and I am definitely still trying to figure it all out. Super exhausted, but I learned to clear snow off the roof while baby wearing so that's cool.

I have a fairly simple outfit for you today. When you think about the pieces, it's just a grey sweater, jeans, and shoes. But by adding details and color you can add interest. The sweater is a cable knit with ruffles (under $20, too!), the jeans are distressed, and the burgundy accessories add some color instead of a typical black. Simple swaps and choosing basic items that have embellishments or detail can add interest and keep an outfit from becoming boring. It makes it look like you put so much more effort into getting dressed, too!

  1. Oh I love the burgundy accessories with this! I need more burgundy in my wardrobe :)

    I have no idea how you managed a wek by yourself with two little ones, when hubby's out for the night and I have to do everything myself I feel so frazzled at the end of the day!

  2. Bless your heart, it's not easy being home with a newborn and a toddler! Added to that having to deal with all the snow, I can't even begin to imagine. You are a rockstar my friend, I am happy you are still on maternity leave!
    Super cute outfit and you're right, basic pieces but by adding a little color and a few details (like the ruffle on the sweater) it's far from a basic look and so much more interesting!

  3. Clearing snow off a roof while baby wearing!? Right, that sounds like no trouble at all! Ha! You are quite a trooper! As for your outfit, I love outfits like this that are simple to put together but have great details. The ruffles on the sweater are great and I love those burgundy shoes!

  15. Love the ruffles on your sweater. It adds a lot of personality to an otherwise simple outfit. Cute burgundy bag, it works well with your entire ensemble!

  17. You really can't go wrong with grey, it goes well with almost anything. And you matched it perfectly with burgundy dear. Such a chic combination.
