Styling a Checkered Blazer + FF Link-Up!

Blazer: Boohoo (sold out, similar here), Cami: Abercrombie, Jeans: Topshop, Booties: J. Crew Factory, Bag: Gucci
Happy Wednesday friends! Hope you're having a great week so far. To those of you that left me such sweet, encouraging comments on my last post, I TRULY appreciate it and appreciate y'all so much!

At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the checkered blazer trend but I have to say that I really like this one. I think the print has to be done right so it isn't overly loud/obnoxious and this one felt subtle enough!


Little Life Update

Happy Monday friends! Hope y'all had a great weekend. This post is going to be a more personal one so I'm just going to dive right in. As most of y'all know, we moved to Boston in July of this year and I was fortunate enough that my company from Virginia allowed me to stay on and work completely remote. While I have been SO grateful for that opportunity especially with so many other changes happening in my life, it was pretty tough. For those that don't know, I work in HR which is a very people-facing industry so to go from working with my team every day and working closely with employees in-person to being home alone all day in a new city it was a big adjustment. As an adult I have always made a lot of my close friends through work and honestly my job has always just made me feel so independent and connected to something. Since we've been here, I have been totally clinging to every minute with Steven because he really is my only person here! We've also been pretty lucky to have a lot of visitors since the move but ultimately having visitors isn't helping me feel connected to our life here.

After about 2 months of totally wallowing in being homesick and counting down the days until our lease was up, something totally flipped a switch and I started to really like Boston and the homesickness mostly went away! It was then that I felt like I needed to start looking for a job here so that I could feel more connected to our life here, get out of the apartment and just have an experience that was my own--not just latching onto Steven's.

So ultimately that was a very long-winded way of saying that this past month I had been interviewing for a new job, resigned my job from Virginia and have started a new job! I interviewed a ton and I was fortunate enough to find something that will be a great growth opportunity and also with an organization that I REALLY like. It honestly felt like something totally clicked with this team and I think it's going to be an amazing fit.

If I'm a little slow to respond to comments/comment back it's because I'm still in training mode at work but once I'm more adjusted I'm sure I'll get back to my normal schedule! Needless to say, I'm VERY excited about the future and this new beginning.

Fall Neutrals + FF Link-Up!

Sweater: Free People, Scarf: H&M, Jeans: Articles of Society, Booties: Vince Camuto
Happy Wednesday friends! I hope you're having a great week so far. After a dreary few days, I'm excited that it's supposed to be a sunny one today! Who else is majorly struggling with the time change? For me the worst part about winter isn't the cold, it's definitely the darker days.

I have been pretty much living in some variation of this exact outfit. As I was putting outfits together this weekend to shoot for the blog, I was REALLY struggling because I feel like it has to be getting boring for y'all seeing me in a big sweater and scarf over and over again. I definitely am feeling a little less creative with my wardrobe choices these days!
