Collection of Adventures

Today was my first day of work. Quick turnaround, I know.

When I got dressed this morning I didn't realize how well my outfit represented my journey to this point in my life. Allow me to explain. 

My boots were a Christmas gift from my mom, who, with my dad, has always been my foundation. 
My tights are special thermal tights I bought in Ireland while I was studying abroad there, my earrings were a souvenir from my time studying in Italy, and on the way out the door I threw on my favorite scarf from Paris. My white button down was a purchase for my time as a summer intern and the belt is from my favorite thrift store in my Kansas college town. 

And my blue dress is brand new, just like this adventure. 

With all this life there to comfort me, I went to work. 
And it went well (thanks for asking).

  2. You are like a walking, talking scrapbook! I love wearing clothing and accessories from when I was on vacation. I have some clothes that are probably no longer 'cool' but I still wear 'em because they bring back happy memories! I'm liking what you did with the white button-up under the dress.

  3. Congratulations!!! Yay!!! You look SO cute, this outfit is perfect for a first day at work. Glad it went well, because I was going to ask ;)

  4. Lovely! In the first pic, the dress almost looked like velvet - such a rich colour.

  5. Yay for a good first day of work. The story of where your clothes came from is really cute.

  6. Congrats on the new job!
    I love that clothes really do tell the story of the wearer. It's why I love vintage so much :)

  7. this is such a great outfit, and it was fun to read where each item came from and its meaning to you. i'm glad you felt so great in it all day, and congrats again on your new job!

  8. Can I just tell you how jealous I am that you studied abroad in Ireland. That is my number one! I want to visit Ireland so bad! You have to tell me how it was there!!
