This past week, I think I was still in recovery mode from my birthday weekend. It probably didn't help that I went to see Harry Potter 7.1 at midnight on Thursday. Yes, I am one of those people.
The second picture is how I feel when I get home from work. Oh, and this is my bed. Yes it is as amazingly comfortable as it looks.
Hey... can I tell you a little secret? I went shopping. The funny thing is I've spent all but one gift card in a week... but my closet NEEDED it. I still need to go through and pull out the clothes that I kept just to hoard. I am excited to showcase some of my new stuff on here.
Well, I mentioned last week that there are going to be some changes going on around the blog. The first order of business is a major series regarding all the things I learned about not shopping for a year. Some of it will be about fashion, but get ready to hear about a lot of difficult struggles that happened this year and what came out of them.
Second order of business, I will not be posting outfits as frequently. I realized something. I follow a lot of blogs where blogging is their job. They don't do anything else but blog... and somehow their husbands or boyfriends are professional photographers? Well kids, I'm not that. I was holding myself to the standards of these super bloggers, when the reality is:
I work a full-time job (that is intense and AMAZING). I head to work early and by the time I get off from work its DARK.
The only person who takes my pictures is me (and sometimes Sam). So this means, I have to go out into the park on my lunch break at work and pray that someone doesn't think I'm a lunatic.
I work in a strictly business casual environment. Not only are denim cutoffs just not even an option, shorts period are not an option. Because of the nature of the office I work in, we don't get casual Fridays. But, I actually really love getting dressed and looking profresh each day. And even more so, I really really love my job and the office I work in and the people I work with.
The conclusion? The focus of this blog is going to change slightly. I realized I really LOVE writing about finances especially being someone very fashion forward but on a crazy strict budget. I realized there are SO many young women my age, that struggle with looking boring or like a librarian when they go to work. I also really love talking about work appropriate attire.
So if you want to join me on this ride, buckle your seat belts and hold on because I am excited to see where this takes me.
