Really Good Hair Club

I don't wear separates very often, but when I saw this t-shirt from You Were Swell, I knew I had to find a great skirt to go with it.  I've admired Sophie's work for quite some time, and I'm so glad I finally have one of her pieces!  This particular design also comes in tote bag and print form, but I'm glad I bought the top.  My only regret is that you can't see more of the graphic with this outfit!  These photos are from a couple of weeks ago, so apologies for the abundance of snow.  I was so sick of trudging through all of it in my backyard, so I tried to make the front walk work for a location.  I can't wait for nicer weather so that I can scout out some other places for blog photos!

Quite a bit has happened over the past couple of weeks.  I've spent the last 3 years working in the box office for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, and I finally made the decision to leave my job there to start working as an assistant for my mom.  I'm not sure whether or not I've mentioned this, but my mom is a publicist for a lot of arts organizations in Rochester (including the orchestra I was working for), and her business has grown so much that she now needs extra help.  I really enjoyed my time at the box office, and I'm really going to miss my coworkers and managers.  But after three years, I decided that I had gotten about as much out of it as I can, and I felt it was time for me to go in another direction and gain a whole new skill set.  It was a tough decision (and leaving was very bittersweet), but I think this will be good for me in the longterm.  Going out of your comfort zone is a scary thing, but I'm embracing it so that I can grow and figure out my next steps.  I'll be working from home, doing some writing, working with media and learning a lot.  I'm excited to see what the future holds!

  1. How exciting! Good luck on your new job adventure! I love the pink saddle shoes with this outfit - so cute!

  2. What a delightfully fun outfit. I love (underline that about seven million times) your super pretty pink circle skirt. It reminds me of my first ever circle/poodle skirt that I had as a youngster, which was pink and white gingham.

  3. I looove Sophie's work--that shirt is perfection! I really need to order something from her shop. Even though you're not usually a t-shirt girl, this style totally suits you! I love this outfit. :)

    Your new job sounds like an awesome opportunity! I've had some friends avoid working for their parents' businesses because to them, it felt like some kind of backwards step, but sometimes it's important to embrace the opportunities that surround you, you know? This one sounds awesome and really suited to you!

  4. That t-shirt is adorable! That skirt reminds me of Billie Piper's in Doctor Who! Well done on the job opportunity. I'd love to work for an orchestra and used to work in arts admin, at the Royal Academy of Music, London but then left to become a teacher xx

  5. Good luck with this shift in your life. The look reminds me of Grease (not in a costume-y way but that same fun vibe.)

  6. Very cute! You look like you're right on the way to a sock hop.
    Good luck with your new endeavor. I hope everything goes well for you. It sounds like a bit, exciting step.
