Modcloth Floral Dress + Madewell Cardigan

I'm officially a working girl again. That's right, no more faux summer break for me. I am now doing project management and digital marketing for an e-commerce consulting firm, and as you might have guessed, I'm thrilled. This week is my first week, which so far is consisting of training and meetings. I get to work from home for the most part, which also presents its own benefits and challenges. I worked from home during one of my internships so I'm not new to it, but it will definitely be interesting. I can't say that I plan on living in sweats though. Even if I'm just in a coffee shop or at home, I still plan on breaking out the dresses every day. Old habits die hard.

This Modcloth dress is a beauty and doesn't make it out often enough for my taste. One of the great things about working from home is creating my own hours, which meant that while I didn't have a ton to do yet yesterday, I took a short lunch/thrifting break with my best friend. We went to our favorite downtown area and had a little trouble finding a spot for photos that wasn't bright and/or surrounded by people. We finally settled on this shaded area outside of an antique store. Antiques: getting the job done however you need it.

In other news, I may or may not be rewatching Breaking Bad now that I've finished Better Call Saul. If you're wondering, yes, I am just addicted as I was when it aired.
