Lately, I have had trouble focusing. I feel like I have been running at 100 miles a minute, without slowing down. Part of that “running” was interviewing. Let me give you lovely readers a little run down. I worked in retail for almost ten years. Ten! I worked in retail because I love people, and who are we kidding, I love clothes. With retail comes a crazy schedule. So two years ago, I decided to get my Masters in Human Resources. After that, I went back to retail. Mainly, because I found it difficult to find a job outside of retail. Then, it finally happened. I found a job in HR early this year. It started out great, but then the work slowed down with no sign of it ever picking up. For those of you who don’t know me, I like being busy at work. Not only is it productive, but it makes the day go quicker. After a few months, I realized this job was not a good fit for me. After all, I’m looking for a career. My fabulous coworker was in the same boat as me. So we began the job hunt. She applied for one job in particular, had a phone interview, and decided it wasn’t right for her. But, she gave the recruiter my information. The recruiter was interested in me and three interviews later, I landed the job! Sometimes things fall into place. And you have to just run with it. For those of you wondering, this job is still in HR at a large company here in St. Louis. I’m so excited to start this career. And it truly feels like a career.
Alright. Now back to the originally scheduled program: clothes! Part of the charm of St. Louis is the sporadic weather. I use the word “charm” loosely. One day it could be 80 degrees and sunny and the next day it could snow. I’m actually being serious. So it came as a not-so-shock that I was able to wear a leather jacket in June. It was actually chilly out. And I was happy to wear a bomber with this dress! Please note, the day after this shoot was about 90 degrees.
I immediately fell in love with this dress by Milly for DesigNation (Kohl’s). The fit and the print were a big selling point. This dress is made out of the scuba material. Ah, the scuba trend. And odd trend to come out of this past year in my opinion. I don’t mind it though. This dress is so soft and comfortable. What are your thoughts on the scuba trend? Now on to the shoes. I’m not sure if you noticed, but I bought another color in my favorite Dolce Vitas. And they’re fabulous.
Dress: Milly for DesigNation Kohl’s, $34
Jacket: Nordstrom (a few years ago…such an amazing steal from their Anniversary sale!) Shop this similar look at Nordstrom, $98
Shoes: Sumner Wedge Dolce Vita, $57.90
In closing, I am going to start telling you all what I am listening to. I listen to music when I write all of my blogs. I’m such a fan of music and I really don’t get to talk about it on this blog. I love discovering new artists, going to shows and listening to oldies. Today I am currently listening to MisterWives. If you haven’t heard them, go listen to them now. I love their song “Reflections”.
I hope everyone is having an awesome week!
