Happiness: I'm Living the Teacher Dream

Image
I can't believe that it's already been two years since I finished grad school. This won't be the usual "Where did I get this outfit from?" post. Instead I want to share with you how I decided on this career despite some roadblocks.

All through college I didn't really have much of an idea of what I wanted to do. I switched between a bunch of majors and career tracks. From studying to be a pediatrician to finally being a linguist, I would say that it was quite an unsettling change for my family. What made it even more difficult was that I had no idea what to do after college. There were concerns of whether I could even find a job in my field or not, if it was a well-paying track, and if there was enough of a demand for another one of me. One day it finally hit me - I'd been working with children in some aspect for my entire life.

O-love Olive: Neutrals x Suede

Some things were just meant to be paired together. For example, eggs and avocados, cookies and milk, shoes and me, and olive and grey.

Try this combo out for yourself after you check out the outfit deets below.






Have you had enough of the Fall outfits? Ready for Winter? As the holidays start to roll around, I'll be closing up this season by talking about one of the biggest steps to happiness that I've taken in my life. Come back Thursday to see what it is!

As a fan of all things green, of course I had to do a mini-series on the color olive. It's one of the most popular colors once the colder months start swinging around and I don't blame anyone for overusing it because well, I do, too. Olive pretty much goes with everything!

In this first part, I'm bringing back corduroy! No, not the teddy bear - though I'd gladly welcome that Corduroy into my life as well. Check out the full outfit details below!






Not ready to give up on olive? Me neither - so stay tuned for Monday's post where I bring out the neutrals.

It's not everyday that I get to go out like this, especially if I'm trying to avoid getting spaghetti sauce and paint on me. But once in a while, I like to look cute and fancy. So here's my attempt!






How do you think I did? Leave a commet and let me know! As fall quickly comes to an end, stay tuned for how I keep the season alive just a little bit longer with some classic olive. Nothing like ending the season how I started it, right?

Sweater Weather: Sweatshirts x Combat Boots

Image
Who doesn't love a dress with pockets? Well ladies, you are definitely in for a treat in the second and final part of this sweatshirt mini series. This dress not only comes with pockets, but is also probably (most likely) the most comfortable item of clothing that I own! Check out the full outfit deets below!




Have I convinced you to get super duper comfortable in sweatshirts yet? If not, maybe lace, leather, and thigh highs are more your thing. Come back Thursday to check it out!
