So, long time no blog. Yeah. Life has kinda been getting in the way recently, and plus I've kinda hit a brick wall with outfit inspiration lately. Truth be told, I've been living in sweatpants lately, and if I need to leave the house, a big cosy jumper and jeans. This outfit isn't the most exciting outfit ever, but well, it's what I wore. I've been feeling a little bit disillusioned lately with fashion blogging, has anybody else felt like this? I've just been feeling that so many bloggers, including many of my favourites, have lost their integrity. I see so many bloggers wearing outfits that consist of c/o items that aren't their style at all, waxing lyrical about how wonderful and amazing and exciting their lives are all the time. I guess that's just not me. I like to keep my blog honest, from what I talk about, to how things are going, to what I'm wearing. And so the reason I haven't been posting outfit photos lately is because I haven't had exciting outfits to post, and I know that you guys can totally understand that! Blogging is also going to get difficult next week when I start my job. I'll be leaving the house around 8.15am and getting home from work after 7. Plus I'm going to be wearing more business-casual clothing for work, relegating most of my wardrobe to weekend wear only.But I know I'll figure out a way to make it work, and I know if I can't update all the time, you will understand. Like I've said, I'm always been honest with you and honest on my blog, so I hold my hands up and say, yes, it's going to be difficult but I love to blog and I'm determined to make it work. Anyway, so this outfit is quite simple, but I really love this dress and just wanted to keep it, well, simple. I tried it with raspberry tights but it just felt kind of forced. So I stuck to my old favourite- an old navy cardigan, navy tights and my favourite boots. I do appreciate that this outfit is simple though, and I hope I get my outfit mojo back soon!
Anyway! This is my last week of unemployment! I'm enjoying sleeping in and catching up on the million and one things I need to do before I start work. It sounds daft and naive, but working is just going to take up so much time! While I was at university I basically ran my own schedule so if I needed to nip into town to get something, or go food shopping or even go to the doctors, I could just move a few things around and fit it in. It's starting to hit me now that every single Monday to Friday, between 9.30 and 6pm is work time. But I am really, really excited to start my job. As I've said, I love the company and I got a really good vibe from the first day I went in to interview there! The people seem great and I'm just really excited to get started. Obviously I'm super nervous to start a new job and I've been questioning my ability a lot. But I went in yesterday to collect my contract and my new Macbook Air (!!!) and my boss has so much confidence in my ability and seems so excited to work with me that it makes me feel so many better. I know a lot of people interviewed for the position and I did really well to get the job, so I have to believe that I can do the job! On a slightly different note, I signed up to do an evening photography class at my old college today! I feel as though working is going to take a lot out of me, so I don't want that to be an excuse to not do things. My Mum and I have already planned to have a big cook-a-thon on a Sunday so we can still have home cooked meals every day, and I'm planning on keeping up with my workout routine by doing the 30 Day Shred when I get home from work. Like I said, keeping on top of everything is going to be tough, but hey, I got through my degree while also blogging, writing for various publications, dancing five times a week and doing a part-time job!
Well I think I've done enough talking to make up for the lack of posting! I'm hoping to get another couple of posts up this week!
