HAPPY HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I can’t believe it has been two weeks since I left London- it feels so much longer ago. London feels like a distant memory, like a former life. In fact, it feels like it was someone else’s life. And so… Now What???
The number one question I have been asked since I got home is “What are you going to do now that you are back?”
G O O D Q U E S T I O N F R I E N D S.
As you may or may not know I used to be a teacher. I taught for six years in a classroom with students with severe special needs. I LOVED these kiddos, I loved my job and I had a passion for educating. And then my son was born with significant medical needs and I became passionate about being a mother and I there was not room in my life for both. I have never looked back since I quit teaching and although I admire those dedicated educators I can no longer call myself one. When we moved to London I knew my teaching days were behind me and I felt happy to embarking on a new adventure. And now I am home again… and a new adventure awaits.

Okay, so the first thing I am going to do is continue to wear these new distressed denim. And then shortly after that I am going to put this criss-cross back sweater on repeat. After that I will add these fuzzy platform slip-ons. Let’s talk about this sweater and while we do you need to buy it– like now. It is amazing. I got mine from my very favorite Denver boutique Hailee Grace so if you are in Denver head in there and let the girls know you saw this on the blog. If you are not in Denver you can purchase it here. It is perfect for any occasion — pair it with heels and some dark denim to make a pretty sexy date night outfit. I love how it is cute and classy it is but adds a bit of sexy from the back. These new distressed jeans are so fabulous and while some reviews are calling them acid wash I disagree… they are perfect and under $100. LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I had my eye on them while still in London but didn’t want to pay the shipping so they were one of the very first purchases upon arriving back.
These slip-on sneakers are fabulous and so fun! The little pom poms make any outfit pop and add such an element or flirty fun that I can’t stop wearing them. Like all my other Steve Maddens they were a bit tight to start but after two wears they loosen up and become very comfortable. Okay, on to this bag. Believe it or not my husband found this at Nordstrom Rack the other day. He did good!!! While I was unable to link the exact one I have linked the same bag just in a different color. It is a cute little bag for a brunch and is perfect for the coming spring/summer season.
so now what?
Well… I am still figuring that out. But I can tell you I am not returning to teaching. My hope and dream is to grow the blog to be successful but I am still learning what that looks like. I am learning how to consistently engage you guys so you will come back each week, to inspire you in your everyday outfits and to continue to offer perspective as you read. I love fashion and I love getting dressed but I also love writing. I love having this platform to express myself and I am forever grateful to each of you who believe in me.
I want to expand my posts to include other aspects of my life-maybe a little about being a momma, maybe a little about travel, maybe a little about being a wife… I guess the possibilities are endless. But the most important is that they are relevant to you- so let me know what you want to see?!? What do you like to read about? What can I help you with? I know that your time is limited and I appreciate any time you have to spend reading each week so my goal is to make it worth your while.
So, to answer the question… “What are you going to do now?”
Well, I am going to figure that out each day… and at some point I just may have an answer…
