Hi Loves! It's been a little while since I've been on here (sad!!), but life has been SO crazy lately! I don't know if many of you know, but I was a buyer for a large department store chain that is currently going through a liquidation process. I bought trend and sterling silver jewelry, and when I say I absolutely loved my job, I'm not exaggerating at all - I truly think that buying jewelry is the path that I'm supposed to be on. So when the company filed bankruptcy a few months ago, and subsequently had to start a liquidation process for all of our stores, I had so many emotions running through my mind. What was I going to do next? How long will it take for me to find a new job? And not just any job, but a job that I love? Going through a career change has been one of the most scary and stressful things that I've done; not knowing what's next can do a number on your sanity. I've had a lot of moments where I stop and question what I'm doing, if I'm allocating my time to the right things, or if I should take that leap into the unknown and just start the company that I've always dreamed of creating. I would love for you guys to follow along on this journey with me, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you to stay strong and believe that good things will come, if you're ever in a similar situation.
On another note, gingham has been the trend/pattern of the season! I'm L O V I N G this tiered ruffle number by Fashion Union (found at none other than my favorite store, aka Asos). This is such an easy dress for summer, and the long sleeves are so great for when the sun goes down. I paired my dress with some fun statement earrings and white booties, and I'm still trying to get over how much use I've gotten out of these shoes! I've linked everything below, as well as some of my other favorite gingham dresses! And as always...happy shopping Loves!
