because when temperatures are floating around 0°, I cannot keep a poker face.

all my face says is “get me out of here”.

ASHLEY @ MARRIED TO THE GAME.

morning or night: morning. breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and nothing is better than a big cup of coffee. plus, when you wake up, you still have the whole day ahead of you!
perfect sunday: I love lazy sundays. my ideal sunday is just laying on the couch watching movies with my fiance all day and then cooking a nice dinner.
I wish I knew how to: speak another language fluently.
favorite way to unwind at the end of the day: drinking a “sleepy time” tea while catching up on episodes of our favorite shows that we missed.
ashley is getting married at the end of june, & she’s been my motivation extra push to get fit for my own wedding.

business casual. ish.

today is day 1 “on the floor” of my new job.

[aka: I’ve completed classroom training].

last week was a whirlwind.

by the time tuesday appeared, I was freaking out. “what am I going to wear?” + “how am I going to wake up @ 4:45AM?” + “I need to organize my life!”.

let’s say I was excited for the weekend. I could breathe, gather myself, & prepare for my first full week.

we went over the “dress code” during training: no sandals, no bare shoulders, no jeans. basically my life essentials. hello it’s 100* + outside & you want me to wear sleeves? vomit. I got really lucky with my last job. As long as you weren’t naked, we wore what we wanted. [my go to: jeans & v-neck tee’s ..but I’d dress up when I felt like it]. now I don’t have that option.

so saturday I spent my day @ Kohl’s & Target.

my Kohl’s purchases:

{#1}/{#2}/{#3}/{#4}/{#5}/{#6}

[both belts on the dresses are from target].

and from Target:

hello new color blocking outfit. watch out world. I’m learning a thing or two from the fashion bloggers out there.

{#1} skirt/{#2} belt/{#3} tank

I also got two pairs of flats. I have a 30 minute walk from the train station to my office so comfy shoes are essential. [I don’t do tennis shoes & dresses ..to each their own].

{#1} kohls/ {#2} target

I did some damage.

I’m a gosh darn professional. now.

happy [first day of the work week] monday.

[t-minus three days until lollapalooza].
