Anything + Everything Blog Hop #5

Monday, April 15, 2013

Sometimes outfits happen organically, and sometimes you try on 19 different things before it looks right. This look was a happy accident! I have this tube top maxi dress (that I frequently wear as a skirt), in my closet, and it was the first thing I grabbed the other day. I am not like other girls in that they build an outfit around their shoes, I build an outfit by what is clean and practical, lol. This maxi is so comfortable, and I wear it every chance I get. Maxi's can often make a short girl, like myself, look stumpy and boxy, so I thought this floral peplum top would be the perfect compliment. The peplum defines my waist without hugging all my curves, win/win! It's crazy to think I have had both of these garments in my closet for over a year and I've never put them together!

I also have a bit of news for you... I just got the call for a new job! It's a position as an executive assistant for a digital marketing company, hello, right up my alley! I knew I immediately wanted  the positions as soon as I heard about it. Fortunately, my winning spirit and previous experience won me the position!! Thank you to everyone who has been sending me good vibes!

Thanks so much to you both for hosting. The outfit looks amazing. Works really well. Isn't it funny how there can be great items together in a closet for ages and we don't think to try them out. It is a good 'ah ha' moment when we do. Well done on the new job!!
