The Key to Finding a Job You Love is Patience (and Pickiness)

Office Style Inspiration: Fuschia Shirtdress

Belted Short Sleeve Shirtdress (also comes in black and white stripes – both are on major sale and almost sold out!) /  Leopard Clutch ($50 version here) / Rosegold Bangle Watch (c/o) / Ankle Strap Sandal

It’s no secret that I love my job. I started managing internal communications for a company that I love back in January and there are days that I still can’t believe this is what I get to do. I’ve also shared my very non-linear career path with you, but I thought I’d focus on more of the how I got to my latest adventure. As in — how long did it take me to find this job? And when is the best time to look?

An #NSale Dress That You’ll Actually Want to Wear Now

Summer Style / White & Red Floral Dress

Tie Back Blouson Dress (on sale for $31 – comes in 3 prints and 3 solids) /Leopard Clutch (more affordable version here) / Strappy Nude Heels (also available here) / Smashbox Lipstick in “Safe Word”

One thing that I was pleasantly surprised about when it came to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was how many styles there were that you can actually wear now. Case in point: this lightweight dress that comes in three different floral prints and three solid colors.

#NSale Style Tip: How to Wear A Slip Dress for Summer & Fall

Soft Cozy Cardigan & Floral Slip Dress

Floral Front Button Slip Dress (on sale for $31, also comes in a solid color) / Shawl Cardigan (almost sold out!) / Layered Choker Necklace (on sale for $23 in rose gold) / Chloe ‘Mini Marcie’ Crossbody Bag / Ankle Strap Sandals  / Smashbox Lipstick in “Safe Word”

As you guys know, it’s the three weeks of summer where bloggers start dressing like it’s fall. Yeah, I know — it’s strategically savvy if you’re a blogger, but otherwise absolutely insane to everyone else on the planet. I promised in my first outfit post from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that I wouldn’t go too crazy with the fall outfits (remember how it’s mid-July??), so I figured this slip dress and cardigan combo would be a good compromise.
