I have to admit I’m never ready to leave Hawaii, there is usually a point on vacation where you’re ready for it to end and get back to the regular day to day…not in Hawaii. Alas we have to pay for vaca (and a new house) which means it must come to an end. Before we left I picked up a few new items from Ann Taylor for work and fun-I love how versatile the pieces are our current fav are these wide leg trousers we may or may not have in 3 colors.  Options, ya know? I also love how a scarf can add so much to an outfit it’s becoming my new favorite accessory!

Before I give you a run down on our new fav jeans I feel like maybe I should tell you what I’ve been up to the last few weeks. For those of you who don’t know by day I’m in sales and the last month was an extra busy one. I had a conference in Hawaii (I know, I know, lots of people would have been willing to take my place) and a week long national sales meeting in Florida. My husband travels weekly for work and we don’t really miss a beat when he’s gone but it always adds some extra stress to our fam if I have to head out of town. Auntie even had to step in for night when both my husband and I were gone-I swear, it takes an army. Being a working mom is hard and the guilt is real. I didn’t end up getting home until midnight after my week away and you better believe I ran right into my sweet girl’s room to see her when I got home. I’m pretty sure I cried when I finally saw her, a full week away is just a little too long for my liking. There is nothing more to this story other than to say to the working mom, I feel you.

Now, the jeans. I don’t know about you but finding the perfect white denim is a STRUGGLE-first world problems amiright? We have finally found the perfect fit and it’s safe to say we’re probably not going to be following any of those ‘white after labor day’ rules. These pants are the perfect fit – high waisted with no gap, great quality, ideal for running to the playground with sneaks and layer with a sweater, or dressy enough to head the office.
