What my Monday night should have been: Coming home from work, having a snack and blogging my week.
Monday night actually was: Came home late from work, ate some leftover
chinese, and passed out on the couch before I could get to my bed.
Most things don't work out like you plan. But (a day late) here's week five!
"Outfit of the day" (ootd). I don't usually take pictures of my outfits just because I don't have nice backgrounds and it takes so long to set up my tripod, but I think my phone did a pretty good job. I downloaded an app called pic collage, which has fantastic backgrounds and layouts.
I received this dress and necklace from Drew's family for my birthday and I am in love with it. It was the perfect dress for work and for the heat we've been having.
I blogged about this day last week, so for those who read the post know it was not a productive day. I've finally finished editing photos, which is not my favorite task as a business owner.
Another OOTD. I've talked about this company quite a bit, I just love them so much! The skirt is from Mata Traders. FAIR TRADE, at a GREAT price. (It is currently $37.99-on sale!). I actually wore this outfit to my interview and it worked so well, a little creative with a touch of professional. I bought the bracelet in Guatemala and can't believe how well the colors match this skirt.
OOTD-this dress was from Drew's family for my birthday last year. This one, and the other, are both from American Rag by Macys. It is a great line and on a petite figure, it is a perfect fit (NO ALTERATIONS!). Watch and Bracelet from Fossil, Shoes from Payless by Zac & Zoe, Necklace from my trip to Paris in college.
I bought a book called "Fall in Love for Life: Inspiration from a 73 year marriage". It was recommended to me for an engagement gift and I opened the book just to read a little and opened to this page. I don't think embarrassed is the correct word, but I've been apprehensive about going back to work in retail, thinking it might be a step back in my career, but this text reminds me that this opportunity will open so many doors.
Sunday I went home to work and saw I had a package. I didn't order anything so this was a total surprise. I opened it to literally a package of mustaches. A ring, necklace and earrings! For the past few years, I've loved mustaches but never bought anything with them on it, so as soon as I opened this, I knew it came from my college roommate. It was such a nice surprise and I am so happy that my fingers have a mustache now!
Also, homemade pickles. They can't get much better than this.
I can't believe the month of July is over. Just over a month and I've taken about 46 pictures for this challenge. I can't wait to see where I am this time next year and see how life has changed. If you want to join me on this challenge, just start taking pictures! You don't need a smart phone with all the apps I have, and simple camera will do. Just take a snapshot of something in your day and start keeping a record. Blog about it and share your link!
