[haute mama] w23d7 ~ leather & lace

Happy Thursday, y'all.  One day closer to the weekend, one day closer to Puerto Rico for me (can you tell I'm excited?).

Today is a business dress day at our office, something almost as rare as a solar eclipse.  I took advantage and finally busted out these skinny black pants that I scored at Motherhood.  I was searching high & low for something in this exact silhouette, in black, and there they were one day when I wasn't even looking for them (of course), the very last pair on the clearance rack, in my size. 
This top also came from a clearance rack (at Kohl's).  It's not maternity, but it's nice and long and has a little bit of stretch to it.  I love the lace pocket detail.
That's where the bargain bonanza ends, I'm afraid.  But my shoes were on sale at least.
I love a pop of color with black & white, and the emerald green is a little bit more unexpected (in my opinion) than red, for example. 

top: Lauren Conrad/Kohl's, pants: Motherhood, shoes: Valentino, necklace: Kohl's

This will probably be my last post until after our vacation.  See you next week with some photos from la isla bonita!

Perhaps we can take a few pics for the masses while we're in P.R. :)
