WIWW: May 4-10, 2014

Another week of What I Wore Wednesday!

The Amateur Librarian // What I Wore Wednesday

 

What I Wore Wednesday is my motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time! I kept a fashion diary for the entire year of 2012, in 2013 I added a bit about my days to go along with the outfit, and I’m continuing the same tradition in 2014… So these weekly check-ins are a mini journal of my life too!

Beautiful Sunday!  I can’t even remember anything noteworthy about this day… except that I definitely spent some time outside cross stitching and listening to podcasts… my new favorite lazy weekend activity!

My last day of unemployment… and most of the day was spent at the hospital for an MRI.  Not the most fun thing in the world, especially the ensuing nausea that lasted most of the night.  Blech!

First day at my new job!  I’ll be continuing my no-details policy to keep this personal blog separate from work… but I can say that my new position at a publishing company is pretty cool… and I’m really excited to be working in the world of books again!

I have to admit it’s been fun to wear some office outfits again, instead of the same ole jeans-and-tee combo every day.  One fun thing about starting a new job is that I can revamp my style philosophy… I’m trying to go more simple and classic with color combos and accessories.  Also… love my new shoes!

Easy dress for work, then I changed into ankle boots and my moto jacket for a concert in Nashville.  Spoon was a really fun show! (Although, if we hadn’t bought tickets quite a while ago, I might not have chosen to go out late during my first week at a new job.  Oh well… YOLO (ha)).

Friday!  I work half days on Friday, so after finishing up the morning I headed to Nashville again for another doctor appointment.  The appointment went smoothly but I was beat after a long week!  Even happy/exciting anxiety can be exhausting!  We celebrated with dinner at the movies… The Neighbors was pretty much exactly what you would expect… pretty funny but not exactly profound.

We staked out our spot on Main Street for the Franklin Rodeo parade Saturday morning… more on that in tomorrow’s post!  Fun times.  I was feeling sick (too much excitement for an introvert!) so the afternoon was pretty lazy.
