Life Lately

Wow! A lot has happened since I last blogged. So here's a quick update... (sorry, no photos) 

1. I quit my job at the real estate office to pursue my social media virtual company full time in August. It has been a busy and exciting and nerve-wracking few months. Last year as I planned and launched my wedding planning company, I learned so much about the social media side of running an online business. Since the wedding thing didn't take off quite like I had hoped, I decided to put my social media knowledge to use and became a virtual assistant in March. Funny, both ideas, My Bridal Bestie, and The Social Walker hit me on February 13th of each year..the day before my birthday. Birthday crisis? haha, maybe!

My company has grown from 1 client to over 10 and I love what I do now. Some days I can't believe that people are paying me to do this, but I know it is impacting their business and relieves so much stress for them. 

2. I am still working at BHLDN (Anthropologie's Bridal Store) and I love it so much! Mom and I have always dreamed of opening our own bridal store one day, so I thought I should get some experience first. My bosses and coworkers there make it so much fun to go into work and I just love being around them! I always wondered if I would actually like working with brides and their maids, and honestly, I do. Of course there are some stressful days, but seeing how excited a bride gets when all the looks and colors comes together makes it worth it. So Mom, if you're reading this, let's still open our store one day! 

3. I'm an aunt again!! My sister had a little girl this time and I couldn't be more in love! My nephew is the cutest little guy on the planet and such a great big brother. I'm looking forward to the holidays when I can spend as much time with them as possible! 

Now that I work from home, I'm getting a little bit more into a routine with client work and BHLDN hours. I'm going to be carving out some time to blog here more as well. I really miss blogging for myself and getting my thoughts out of my head - working from home most of the day means I mainly talk to myself or the dog...so maybe I should apologize now for all the future posts. haha! 


Styled: Easy, Breezy

























Skirt: hi-lo hemline by I.N. Studio (dillards.com)
Necklace: Ana & Ava (dillards.com)
Jean Jacket: American Eagle
Basic white tee-shirt/tank

This was my go-to outfit for the summer. Anytime I had to travel but still wanted to look put-together, this outfit was it. I would mix up the jewelry and then shoes to compliment the jewelry. When I flew to NYC this past spring I chose this outfit for the airport - slide off the sandals and remove the jacket - easy, breezy!

Another way to make this an easy outfit? It takes me forever to dry and straighten my hair, so for this look I just put some goop in my hair and wielded the blow dryer. :-)
