I really didn't plan for this outfit to be all hearted out but once I realized the shoes matched the shorts perfectly, I just had to do it. It's been such a hectic few weeks, and I can't believe that this the last official weekend of the summer. Pretty excited to be back into the Fall, I already planned out multiple outfit posts in my future, including locations and tights (I know I'm a huge dork). As I said in the past I am finding myself really loving simple outfits in the summer. Cut off shirts and high waisted shorts are pretty much my jam. Not to mention these jelly shoes making a serious comeback into my life. I used to rock jellies in the 90's like it was my job.
It's crazy to think that a year ago around this time I was attending FIT orientation and planning for a year of classes & a completely different routine. I really am going to miss school, but at the ripe age of 26 I would say it's about time I started my new career and took a step in the right direction.
My favorite part of this whole journey has been the growth I can clearly see from one year to the next. It's almost like I feel brand new. A brand new person with brand new ideas, and constant inspiration. I just needed a good kick in the butt, and here I am. I feel like I am growing a little more every day, and although I don't have the perfect full time job I have been wanting, I know it'll come when it's meant to. The right thing is out there, it's all about finding it.
