My Closet | August 28, 2014

 My husband asked me, "does that really go together?" when I walked out this morning.  Now I'm wondering if I should have worn a darker shirt...

shhhhh...the tag on this shirt says Miley Cyrus.  And I really like it - Bahahahaha! :)

chambray shirt, walmart | skirt, down east basics | wedges, old navy

My Closet | August 27, 2014

Summer colors are still here.  I know as soon as I begin piling layers on this Fall I am going to long for summer to return.  I'm just not even going to think about that right now! :(

We are thoroughly enjoying summer - the garden, the evenings out with friends, ice cream, sunglasses, sandals, car windows down and just the carefree feeling that summer always seems to bring me.

blue leather bag, f21 | coral pencil skirt, old navy

 I had mentally transitioned into Fall last week and then it got HOT in Indiana!  Hot and muggy!  This soft and breathable denim skirt was the perfect option for a casual day in the office as then as I transitioned into Mommy mode during the afternoon-evening.

My Big Promotion

I may have mentioned before that my employer is -hands down - the BEST! Now if someone wanted to pay me to cuddle my baby/lounge with my hubby/sleep/watch TV/shop they might win the award for best employer, but since I haven't come across that place of business yet, I'm thankful for the next best thing! 

I work with a group of people that are like family to me - even in your family there are some you like a little more than others, right? Haha!! This past winter my boss sent the ladies that I work with to dinner and then to see Wicked. We had our company picnic this summer and went to an Indianapolis Indians baseball game together.  The cherry on the sundae is that he just sent the ladies to brunch and an afternoon at the Spa! He tries to do special things like this in recognition of projects we've completed and things like that...and let me tell you, it is SO appreciated!
I started with the company back in 2008 and have been able to work in several roles and grow with their business... which is more of a blessing than I ever could have anticipated!!  On the side of the business I work now, I have worked as an Account Representative, Account Manager and now Director of Client Services.  

Getting out of the the day-to-day client work and working with internal processes, program development and marketing has been such an exciting change.

I worked for a large family owned company and then a large corporate company previously so I know how blessed I am now.  I am so thankful to come to work and not have knots in my stomach because I hate my job so much and my working environment is miserable {I've been there before too!}.

My boss also confirmed at my annual review that my Fridays working online from home were still ok - that is basically what makes me able to function the rest of the week knowing I'll have that long weekend at home and with my baby! 

So there is some exciting news and a praise all wrapped into one!!!!

What I'm Wearing: August 20, 2014

I'm rarely one to look forward to cooler temperatures and let's face it, this summer has been particularly cool, buuuuttttt boots and scarves and cardis and caramel apples and hot chocolate and candles {you get the point } have a way of drawing me in every year around this time! 
I got this jacket/cardi at f21 for my birthday and I'm loving it already! It's lightweight but adds that special little touch to my office attire. 

Don't worry, I'm still enjoying the last days of summer as well. I still have some bright colors to share with you from earlier this week...

// Outfit Details //
Jacket - Forever21 (or forever 32 as I'd like to think ;)
Silk top - thrifted 
Dark denim pencil skirt - Old Navy
Flats - thrifted

Family Vacation '14

We just got home from a week at Lake Michigan.  It was relaxing & gorgeous...the perfect little family getaway!
 Chase was able to enjoy the sand and water and we had so much fun experiencing it all with him!  I'm off to enjoy the rest of my vacation weekend as I get things unpacked and put away @ home.  

I think I have the vacation blues already :)

Relaxing with a view this week!

Just the sound of the waves and a little quiet time with my family this evening.
