Ups and Downs

The last few days have been super crazy. As you all know, I left my job on Saturday and went home for the weekend. It was definitely a good idea to go home. I did nothing on Saturday afternoon and then in the evening went out with my parents. I spent all day yesterday filling in grad schemes applications and then came back and went to the cinema with my best friend. It was good to go home, but it's just a bit hard now to get back into things. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll also know that I had my first rejection email from one of the grad schemes I applied for today, which really got me down, but then I got through to the next stage with another, so fingers' crossed!

I've also almost finished choosing my placements for my summer in the States too! I've chosen 7 potential places but I'm just going to wait a few more days in case anything else comes up before submitting them. At the moment it could be a clothing store in New Hampshire, three gift stores in San Francisco, two front-desk jobs at hostels in different areas of Los Angeles or a barista in a Starbucks in Indianapolis! I'm excited.

This outfit is loosely based on one of Annebeth's again!


 I definitely have a a grey cardigan somewhere but I have no idea where it is! Her dress is a little more winter appropriate and mine is quite summery- I wore this dress a lot over the summer! I added the fur stole for a bit of extra interest and the grey hat to keep it wintery. My photography is a bit off today- it was cold so I just wanted to get it out of the way!

  5. I looove this outfit, your version is so perfectly you! That cardigan/fur looks so amazing with the floral dress. I'm going to have to pair a floral dress with a gray cardigan now. You rock. Excited to hear which placement you get :)

  6. Goodness, it sounds like you have a lot going on right now - beyond creating the perfect layered winter look, I mean :) I spotted it on lookbook this morning and had to come by to tell you how much I love it.

    I know how disheartening it can be to receive school rejections, but just keep your chin up. The right thing fo ou will come along. In the meantime, have fun planning for your summer abroad, and good luck finding a job that is more suited to you.
    xox,

  10. Oh my goodness! This has to be my favorite outfit of yours ever! I think I'll have to try to find a fur stole immediately. Although, probably won't work very well in today's 70-degree weather...

  11. Good luck with the rest of your grad stuff and picking a job!
    Also, I love the fur you wore in this outfit. It definitely helps the summery dress look winter appropriate.

  12. I love your take on that outfit. The fur stole goes beautifully with the floral dress & grey accessories.
