Yay news.

So today is Tuesday, this is being written Monday night and this outfit is from Saturday. Are you with me? I'm posting in advance because as you are reading this, I am getting ready for my new job! No, it's not a nursing job (I still have to take those pesky boards) but it's a job! I will be a personal health aide for a kindergarten student. He's a boy living with type 1 diabetes, and my job is to basically monitor him throughout the day and watch for signs of low blood sugar. I couldn't be more excited for this opportunity and I get to hang out with 5 year olds all day! :)

My fiance helped dress me this day. He picked out what dress he wanted me to wear and I accessorized accordingly. Saturday we did some shopping and spent time with family. I was on the hunt for a burnt orange cardigan, with no luck. I've found a few online with the help of Meg, but I need to wait for my first payday before I can order anything else online!

Here is what I wore:


Dress- TJ Maxx ($2!)
Cardigan- Charlotte Russe
Tights- Walmart
Boots- Ebay
Scarf/Belt- Forever 21




I love these sheer gray tights, I'll be wearing these a lot this a/w. I'm also loving brown and gray together. It's like a more subtle version of black and brown. I realize I'm wearing three shades of brown (shoes, cardi, belt), oops :)


Things to watch for in the next month or two:
1) A "What to wear to a hockey game" post
2) A "Wedding planning so far" post
3) Suggestions?

Oh yay congrats on the job! It sounds really fun and interesting. I'm glad you also found some burnt orange cardis, haha. It's so weird -- my best friend here in Portland also really wants a burnt orange cardi! Wtf? Since when is that a coveted item? I thought that was funny. But ANYWAY, this outfit is so freakin' cute! That dress with the cardigan makes me so happy, and the boots/belt are absolutely perfect. Lurve!
