Blazin' It Up
Well - First of all, today bloggers across the blog-o-sphere donned their blazers to blaze a trail of awesomeness across the interwebs. You should click on the link below (by clicking the image) to see the unique stylings of some awesome ladies and how they rocked their blazer today.
A blazer is one of my favorite wardrobe items. I think it often adds an extra touch to an outfit, providing that one layering piece that can take an outfit from good to great! I've really gotten into belting my blazers, because nothing adds more to an outfit than a great belt! Belts and Blazers - I think that should be a book title!
In COMPLETELY different news and ramblings, some major, major happenings have been going on in my life the past week. My small world that I have lived in for over six years is going to change - for the better, and I am super, super excited. I got offered and accepted a new position over the weekend at a firm in my little town!! (which I randomly found out that the lovely Megan Nielsen actually lives in - SUPER small world!!) But anyway - NEW JOB!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I can't quite comprehend it - I have been with my company for a long, long time through the best of boom times to the worst recession in our economy since the Great Depression, in the industry that arguably got hit the hardest and has actually been in a depression while everyone else has been in a recession. I have had so much opportunity and done a lot with the company, but it is time to take a leap of faith, a risk, and a step out of my comfort zone. A CHANGE! For this small town girl, it is a big, big deal.
BUT because of this new development, I have really been wrestling as to whether or not to try to continue on in this 30 for 30 challenge. I honestly still haven't narrowed down my items yet - STILL. But, to be fair to myself, I've been a little bit distracted with other life developments. I really don't want to quit, which is evidenced by the fact that I am still trying to work within the items that I did actually select. I hate quitting or giving up things. But because of the impending changes, I don't know if it is the right time to be limiting my closet.
SO - I am going to continue with this challenge until I leave my current job - but I just wanted to throw it out there that I am only going to be halfheartedly in this. Hopefully when spring or summer rolls around, I'll be in a better position to jump in again. So please don't hate me! All 3 of you who actually read up to this point! :)
