Sighs of Relief

Scarf & Blazer:  Hot Mama
Tee, Jeans & Boots:  Target

Can I just take moment to breath a sigh of relief...(ahhhhh).  This concludes the first week of my new dream job at Hot Mama.   How awesome is it to look forward to work every day?  Pretty darn awesome.  One of the reasons I never ventured into retail before was because I couldn't imagine having to work evenings and weekends.  Turns out, when it's something I love and enjoy doing, it really doesn't matter when I do it...because I want to be there all. the. time.

Also...the clothes-swap is over.  Thank God.  Not that I don't love the event, but the timing wasn't good for me this year.  It went really well with the help of some wonderful friends (you know who you are), and for that I am incredibly grateful.  

Now that my schedule has lightened significantly, I plan to make time for blogging again.  I have some big plans for October.  Like, sharing a few local businesses with you that contributed raffle prizes to the clothes-swap.  They're all so great, you deserve to know them.  

AND,  I've challenged myself with styling my new Prairie Underground hoodie as many ways as possible.  There might even be a vote for your favorite look at the end of the month.  Fun stuff like that.

See you sooner than later.

Sounds like it has been a busy, busy few weeks for you. But congratulations on making it through! I really adore the casual, fun vibe of this outfit. The tee and scarf add a great pop of color to the neutral basic. And I really love the tough vibe of the boots. Super adorable. Absolutely love your blog!
