Cactus Lace

IMG_4373 Since I have started working 8-hour days and coming home in the evening, I have been trying to choose work outfits that are still cute for nighttime wear. Although I might not be able to get away with this look in some offices, I am lucky that mine is somewhat casual. I also think most people in Arizona are reasonable with getting a little more casual in the workplace because it is just so hot. I stayed cool in these detailed pieces, a lace tank and a self-altered thrifted skirt.

Today was a really rewarding day at work for me. Since I started at my new job, I have been juggling a couple of land properties. In the past 2 days, I concentrated on one property in Chandler and created a site plan in order to get some feedback from the city's Planning and Development Department. Today I got to print out large copies of my site plan and go turn it in at their office. It was such a cool feeling to create something on my own that was for a real piece of land, rather than a school project!

Thanks so much for stopping by! What have you been up to this week? x, Paige

If Work Permits

IMG_4226 This lace tee is coming through for me again, making all of my summer dresses work appropriate. I first tried it out by layering and knotting the tee over a floral dress for a summer look, but I like it over this striped dress even more. (Which is pretty impressive because I really liked that first combo!) I then added my all-black essentials, grabbed my laptop and drawing tube, and was out the door!

I wanted to share a small preview of some of the things I have been doing during my work day. Assisting an architect with floorplans and planning out a subdivision are what's in store right now. I love that when I go to work I have some things I am consistently working on, but also new information and projects pop up every day!

Geometric Lace

IMG_3277 As I mentioned yesterday, I ended up needing to stay in town a day longer than I originally planned. You may remember my interview outfit for a study abroad scholarship a couple of weeks ago. Tonight was an award reception and I received one of the awards! I was so excited and thankful to receive it, and this is what I wore to it.

Sorry for such a short post--my Dad and hit the road right after the reception was over and I'm actually blogging from the car right now! Thank you Verizon hot spot! We are en route to Arizona and will be home tomorrow. I cannot wait!

"Six Feet Under The Stars"

IMG_1355 I have been wearing this handmade tee non-stop lately, and when I saw that today's #coasttocoastchallenge was "neon" I had to dress it up and throw on my favorite hot pink crossbody. I'm also dreaming about fancier outfits ever since I found these ankle strap heels at Target the other day, which you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram. I found them for $10 and they are to die for! These shoes are so comparable to many others I've seen for a way higher price, such as these ones on blogger WeWoreWhat for $300+.

I decided to go for a throwback for today's outfit, and chose "Six Feet Under the Stars" by All Time Low. You can say all you want about this band, but I needed a song with some pop to compliment the pop of neon in my purse. Listen along below while you view!
