Red Collared Dress

This is officially my last weekday off, and I could not be happier about that. I start training for my new job on Monday, and I am so ridiculously excited. In all honesty, I'm just pumped to have a routine again. I've been working four days a week at my restaurant job, plus a bunch of freelance work, but I just miss having a set schedule and knowing what I'm doing every day. I get to feel like a real human being again!

In the meantime, I'm settling in quite nicely to my temporary home at my brother's house. I really love their house and the the newly converted guest room that I'm staying in, plus I love getting to see my niece and nephew every day. It's strange living in a different part of Orange County, especially since all of my friends are mostly still in Anaheim Hills, but I'm in a pretty awesome area now with one of my favorite downtown areas. I wore this dress the other day when I went into my new office to fill out paperwork, and I decided that I loved how it looks with the leather jacket later. One things I'm especially grateful for in my new job is that there's no dress code and the office is laid-back, which means that I don't have to buy professional clothes and stick with my wardrobe of A-line skirts and Peter Pan collars.

Now that I have motivation for everything again, I'm hoping that includes blogging. I have a great giveaway coming up, and I definitely need to do more pop culture posts again soon. I'm just starting the new House of Cards season finally since I've finally gotten time, and I definitely want to talk about my new love the Comedy Central show, Review, with Andy Daly. It's my new favorite thing.

  1. I adore your ring! that's so cute and unique. :)
    Yay for a new job.


  2. I'm so happy to hear that you're starting a new job!! It's such a relief to know that things are falling into place.

    Also, no dress code at an office is basically the best thing ever!! Work clothes are not fun to wear!

  3. Hooray for routine and human-likeness! xD
    I know what you mean, it's nice to know and plan for upcoming days.
    Love your adorable peter pan collar dress with the tough leather jacket!

  4. Between you and FT, I feel like I've seen this dress so many ways, but I think this might be my favorite remix of it. The leather jacket adds such a great contrast, making it edgier.

  5. Yay! A routine sounds great. I know how you feel. I can't wait for someone to hire me so I can be a normal person again and also make some money. The casual dress code at your office sounds great too! I have this same dress and haven't worn it recently so I think I need to now! I really love how it looks with the leather jacket. So cute!
