I’ve started seeing daffodils blooming in the hedgerows where I live and they’ve inspired me to make this daffodil headband. It’s currently only available in my Etsy shop but I’ll be adding to my other shops soon.
Getting into the swing of the year....and still tired of your wardrobe fight every morning? What’ll I wear, I don’t have a shirt that matches these pants (that I look great in, btw 😏), I need clothes the next size up (or down).....and on it goes.
A company that doesn't judge you for your looks or what to wear is the place to be.
👩⚖️ Many companies have an appearance bias also known as a beauty buys. Assuming there is no specific dress code, take note if everyone dresses the same or feels pressured into wearing similar clothing.
👕👔👗👚 If so then you may want to rethink what kind of control you will have over your career and workplace. .
Find a judge free place and don't look back! So wear are you going to work?
When you just bought a new snakeskin print dress and your favorite winter coat is leopard print, what do you do? You double down and go full on animal print! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What is it about this look that works though? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First and foremost, *I* love it! That’s the number one reason it works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m going to pause for a moment to let that sink in.
Need another example of what I mean? Scroll ⬇️ on my feed and check out my recent Iris Apfel quote and picture. Her outfits shouldn’t work but they do. Why? Because everything she puts on represents something she loves.
For those of you who appreciate a more tactical explanation, here’s the breakdown: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. The colors work together because they are in the same warm neutral shade (beige/brown/black). 2. The leopard print is larger and bolder than the smaller, softer snakeskin print so they aren't fighting with each other for attention. This keeps the prints from being overwhelming.
3. I’m anchoring the outfit with solid neutrals from my black boots to my blush bag. (Swipe to see more pics)
4. The statement necklace adds a touch of shine and lays perfectly in the v neckline.
What two pieces do you have in your closet that you absolutely love but might not normally wear together? I dare you to put them both on and have some fun exploring the possibility of a style without limits. Go on - you got this! 🙌🏻
Today marks a pretty big milestone...
In that one year ago today, I left my job to run my at-home boutique full-time!
I honestly can’t believe it’s already been a full year.
I was so so anxious, my stomach in total knots when I put in my two weeks notice. I thought I would puke. 🤢
Would I be able to support myself as a self-employed business owner? Would it work? Would I fail?
Two weeks later, February 28th, 2019, I left the office no longer filled with any anxiety—sheer and utter excitement had replaced it instead!
I believed in my heart I could do this.
One year later, here I am. A lot of people doubted me, some people made fun of me, and others thought it couldn’t be done. But I did it.
I’m so insanely proud of the work that I have put into building my own amazing boutique, and am so thankful for the incredible community that has been built up around it.
Grateful to be on this journey, especially with all of you 💕 Looking forward what the future will bring ☺️
