Minty Fresh

Today is the first day so far this week that I haven't had a job interview. So I'm celebrating by... not washing my hair. Okay I washed my fringe. Does anyone else do that? I'd pinned it back for my workout and it was a bit messy so I just washed and styled that. Anyway, job hunting has gotten a little better. I'm starting to finally feel more positive. I've also been told by a lot of people to try to enjoy my time off, which feels a little contradictory, but I am trying to relax and enjoy having time to watch Parks and Recreation while I have lunch. Phil is off next week so I'm hoping to get at least a couple of days with him, but it is hard to get out of the mindset that I should be applying for jobs and researching interviews every hour of the day. Today however I had coffee with an old friend I hadn't seen for years, so that was nice to get me out of the house, and tonight Phil and I are going to Nandos and to see How to Train Your Dragon 2. It might not be super fancy, but that's pretty much my favourite date night with Phil.

I'm struggling with this jacket at the moment. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but I'm struggling for ways to wear it. Except for with trousers and a blouse for job interviews. I'm not sure if it's age or laziness, but I like to keep things simple nowadays. Jeans, tops, ballet flats. I actually need about 25 more tops because except for blouses and graphic tshirts, I don't really have any and I'm really into jeans right now. Anyway, I want to push myself to wear this jacket in new ways, but for now, here it is with jeans and a top. The annoying thing is that I actually bought it with a gorgeous matching skirt, but holy hell is it short. As in, if I sat down in it...well put it this way I wouldn't sit down in it. It looked gorgeous as a suit, but unfortunately, it just wasn't meant to be. I love the idea of it with a dress or a pencil skirt but I think I need some inspiration and some time playing with it to find some new ways to wear it. Any ideas?
Hope you're having a great day!
