Things I Wore (and Did) in September 2018

Work has been intense. September was my first month where the semester was in session and I was in my new role managing all of the social channels for the institution where I work. One week, I put in so many extra hours that I worked three full extra days. It’s been a lot, butContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in September 2018”

Things I Wore (and Did) in August 2018

Things have been interesting — a mix of good, bad, and stuff in between. At work, August was one of the busiest months I’ve had as it led right up to move-in weekend (arguably the most hectic weekend of the year for marketers in higher ed!). At home, Bill and I have done a littleContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in August 2018”

What I Wore (and Did) in July 2018

My hair is getting long again and I’m feeling back in my element. I missed my long hair which went away last May when I chopped it all off. My long hair and glasses have been such a defining trait of mine for my life that it feels weird when I make a change, whichContinue reading “What I Wore (and Did) in July 2018”

What I Wore (and Did) in June 2018

June was kind of a chaotic—though overall good—month, with a jumble of unexpected family things going on (that ultimately ended well and resulted in visits from my parents!). At work, I was able to start my new role and I’ve loved it so much. Though I really enjoyed my previous role, getting back into managingContinue reading “What I Wore (and Did) in June 2018”

I Turned 30 in Honduras and It Was Everything

How do you want to celebrate your 30th birthday? My husband, Bill, asked me this a while back and I couldn’t come up with a good answer, so we tabled the discussion for a long time. Then one of us mentioned it would be nice to resurrect a dream we’d had at 25. To celebrateContinue reading “I Turned 30 in Honduras and It Was Everything”

Things I Wore (and Did) in May 2018

May was a truly magical month. I always tend to love May: warmer weather, longer days, and it’s my birth month so I’m very biased. But this May was extra great. First, I was promoted at work, and as of June 4, I’m officially back in the social media realm! I’m so, so, so excitedContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in May 2018”

Things I Did (and Wore) in April 2018

I’m happy. I’ve been feeling like I’m at a great place in my life—with my husband and my dog, of course, who are my lights—but with everything else, too: work, friends, family, me. Things just feel good and I’m trying to savor that feeling. My therapist has been trying to help me be more positiveContinue reading “Things I Did (and Wore) in April 2018”

Things I Wore (and Did) in March 2018

I barely documented my outfits in March—and I’m nearly three weeks late in posting—but the month itself included tons of fun opportunities, as well as some challenging ones. Here’s what I wore! Outfit details Shirt: Marshall’s Skirt: Forever 21 Tights: WeLoveColors.com Boots: Payless OK, so, I was clearly feelin’ this new shirt I bought atContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in March 2018”

Things I Wore (and Did) in January 2018

If January isn’t for snuggling with your dog, then what’s it for, anyway? Looking back on my photos from this month, it’s clear I spent a lot of time inside the house bundled up and petting, snuggling with, and admiring my dog—which is exactly how I like spending my winters. Other highlights include: Dinners andContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in January 2018”

Things I Wore (and Did) in November 2017

I don’t have the perfect life—and some months are harder to get through than others. November was a tough one: my mental health is suffering; my job is, at times, challenging; and the month ended with some particularly disheartening and upsetting family drama. I think, too often, we all get caught up in depicting aContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in November 2017”
