Heading back to work after a long vacation can be daunting to say the least. I spent a full two weeks at home in Florida, enjoying the sunshine, spending time with family and just plain ol’ relaxing. While my day-to-day pace had slowed down, I had time to focus on Brown Paper Doll and goals for 2018. The brief hiatus gave me time to reflect on the past year and what I hope to achieve in the future! I hope to expand my network, partner with brands I’m passionate about, meet more like-minded individuals and find more joy in the growth process. While I can’t wait to achieve those goals, it’s back to work in the meantime!
Many people don’t know that I work a full 9 to 5 job, and boy is it stressful juggling these responsibilities with my blog. Even though I do love my job, I’m falling into a bit of the blues having less time to focus on Brown Paper Doll and the goals I’m so eager to achieve. It’s all a balance and I’m just figuring it out as I go.
Speaking of blues, while I was home I repurposed the navy Tibi skirt that I wore for one of my holiday special occasion looks! I love taking a piece and with a little bit of creativity, making a brand new outfit! For this look – I kept it all Tibi, pairing it with a houndstooth print crop top with tie sleeves and my marigold mules. These shoes are literally my favorite, and I can’t wear them enough. The sunny shade of velvet makes me January blues just fade away!
P.S. How gorgeous is this Inn in Jacksonville! Jason and I almost rented it as accommodations for our wedding and every time I drive by it makes me smile.
