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

OOTD 69_"Ace of Spades"

DSC_0255 This morning was sunny but chilly, and I was heading out to get my hair trimmed. I decided to go casual with this thrifted Motorhead tee and then dress it up with my accessories. The warm colors in the shirt pointed me in the direction of my gold jewelry, gold studs, and warm-toned cheetah print flats. This outfit was stylish, yet allowed me to stay comfy when I headed to the library later in the day.

Today's outfit track is of course "Ace of Spades" by Motorhead, what else? Listen along below.

Today was a good and productive day. I normally don't enjoy doing homework on Saturdays, but I did today and have decided this quarter that it will help me be less stressed out. I read a good quote today while waiting at the salon that said it's best to tackle your most difficult tasks first thing, because otherwise you will waste your energy worrying about it and not be as productive in the long run. Something to keep in mind! Today was also the first time I handed out one of my new business cards which was exciting!
