Did you hear that loud squealing noise? That was summer coming to a screeching halt. I probably could've worn tights today and been okay. But I refuse to face that reality just yet.
I actually didn't plan my outfit last night and managed to not only be ready early this morning, but ended up really happy with what I pulled together. I haven't worn this shirt (Gap, $25ish) for a while and just felt like wearing it today. The skirt (The Loft, $10) is a piece that I feel iffy about on its own, but the belt (NY&C - long time ago, shortened a couple weeks ago) made it work so much better. Since I knew I'd be on my feet all day, I threw on a pair of tweed ballet flats (Target, $10).
Today was a great day. I just finished the fair day 1, so I'm a little tired. I'm getting soooooo excited for my weekend in NYC next week and am starting to freak out at how my time until then is getting really, really full. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, but I'll make it through.
I'm learning so much about what I can do these days. Since I quit my job, I have had opportunities coming at me every week. Today, I just secured a small part-time gig that will make up the financial difference from quitting my job. So awesome! And it's all because I know people who are great people and I put myself out there. The best part, though, is that I didn't accept the first offer, which is something the old me would have jumped on. It wasn't exactly what I had in mind, so even though I risked losing the job altogether, I asked for what I wanted. And it totally paid off! So, stick up for yourselves, girls!
