I apologize for being MIA!!! Its been really busy with the new job so I have had as much time to draft some fab blogs for you all. But don't worry, I've still been reading all of yours! Hopefully I will be back in the swing of things soon. (And with all this rain there hasn't been too much to chat about. But its supposed to be in the 70s this weekend! Here's hoping!)

Anyone else obsessed with...

I am love love LOVING the new show Kell on Earth! Is anyone else as obsessed with this as I am? I love the insane dynamic of their office. Steph V. is definitely my favorite- hardworking, dorky and fun...what more could you want?!

If you haven't checked it out, you need to! Trust me, you'll love it :)

A new kind of style

One of the perks of my current job is that the office dress code is business casual....very business casual. I could probably wear jeans every day if I wanted to. That's what you get at a non-profit! For my new position though, I will need to wear suits everyday. Quite the step-up! Any time I've needed a suit for an interview or whatnot I've just borrowed one from my mom. The perk of her working at Ann Taylor Loft for a number of years is that she has the best closet! And we're the same size! I'll need to borrow a few of her business type pieces until I'm able to go out and basically buy a new wardrobe, but I've been looking into some suits and have come up with some favorites. I'd love to hear some feed back from you all though regarding your favorites and some good places to hit up.

I of course love this JCrew suit in both khaki & navy.

I also like this Banana Republic suit in both the tarnished steel & black.

I'll probably be buying the coordinating skirts & dresses for any suit that I buy to get more options from the ensemble. So if any of you have any tips for great fitting suits or any other business wardrobe tips I'd love to hear them!

I might need to congratulate myself with this...

I've had my eye on the Marche Satchel from JCrew since it came out a little while ago. It might need to be my congratulatory gift to myself for my new job. And its on sale! Doesn't get much better than that!

I am so very fortunate to be able to drive up to this beautiful place every day (starting in two weeks)...And to look out over this beautiful harbor every day (once again, in two weeks)...

Thank you Lord for this wonderful opportunity! I feel truly blessed to be on the path to my dream career. Eeeek!!!!
