Work Week Chic

Hi loves!!

These pics are from my iphone, but I just wanted to show you my new favorite work dress. I loved this dress on Asos website and not so much when it came in the mail, but I finally threw it on after several months of hanging in my closet and I love it. I was thinking about hemming it, but I think it just needs some tailoring.

I hope your enjoying your week.

Reese's Cup



Hello Loves!!

With moving, toothaches and getting ready to start my new job, nothing was getting in my way of this great Charlotte weather. The weather this year has been very unpredictable and I live for the sun.

I feel like a Reese's cup in this outfit. I've always enjoyed pairing black and brown. I haven't been in the mood to get dressed, but when I threw this together for dinner, I loved it.

I plan on wearing my faux leather dress all year long. The fabric is a little thick, but the wind helped.

I'm learning to put myself on a budget, so this JustFab was my Zara shopper replacement, it's holding up pretty well for 40.00 and holds everything.

I hope your out enjoying life!

Talk Soon,

Work Woes

This isn't a Fashion related post, but seeing as it's my personal blog I'll do what I want lol.

I haven't been happy with my most recent work environment, it's been quite negative to say the least. I've always been quite blessed when it comes to finding great positions and getting hired and I'm usually the youngest at a company. 

For many reasons, many of the women find my presence to be quite intimidating. Possibly my style, personality or ability to get the job done, I just haven't met the most friendly people. Nasty looks, smart comments some just don't speak at all. Me being who I am, I still came in everyday and gave my best good morning and treated people the way I wanted to be treated, but I was still unhappy.

People say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but I disagree. Your representing yourself, selling yourself to the world and how you carry yourself, shows exactly how you want to feel, be treated and valued. So it's usually easy for me to spot an unhappy person and initially I don't judge I let them show me who they are. 

If I were 35+ and I encountered a younger person in my position, I wouldn't be negative. If my life wasn't where I wanted it to be, I'd push harder. Jealousy is such a ugly trait.

Today was my last day with my current company and in the same breath I was told the news, I was offered another position, that I've always wanted to give a try.

I usually don't share my personal life, but I was thinking and thought I'd let any other fashionable creative soul know; not everyone is going to accept, understand or be happy for God's gift and blessing he has for you, simply, because it wasn't meant for them. 

Nothing will stop me from being me, I'll never dim my light, because it's shining in someone's eyes.

I'll be sure to post a picture of my first day outfit soon.
