"mint to be"


Lately I've been feeling like I'm experiencing a "mid-twenties" crisis. I feel at times as though I'm wasting the best years of my life at a job I wouldn't choose for myself and a place I'd never thought I'd be residing in again. I do realize the only thing stopping me is myself and I will be the one to make the changes necessary.
On a lighter note, this blazer looks alot cooler in person! The color, peplum detail, buttons, and light blue lining make it quite possibly the most fun blazer I own, considering that an item of clothing can be "fun".

The outfit colors are on the spot with your surroundings! I love how you mixed the different textures together to form a breezy,cohesive and lightweight look.
It looks as if this outfit is a representation of Bahama ocean water. The teal colors at the top moving down to the light sand colored jeans that remind me of coral and the dark blue heels at the bottom. With the blue backdrop as the sky and those buttons and your watch add a little touch of sunshine with the gold tones. LOVE LOVE LOVE! WORK!!!

I think everyone goes through a quarter life chronicles. It's ok to question and figure things out. It's better to take those chances now than in the 40s, when you'll have a lot more responsibilities.

I am LOVING those pumps, btw.

life is all abt taking risks! If u feel you are unhappy with ur current job, take time out to scout around for a new one but don't quit this one until u've found a better one.
I'm currently in d same position. I am not unhappy per se with my job, I am just bored senseless and need something much more challenging and of course with better pay.

J'adore the fit by d way.
Who knew blue and green could make such an awesome combo?

That blazer is amazing and I love what you've paired it with!

P.S. Nashville is such a cool city, but I can imagine how you're liking being in the south! I had to go away to DC... at least you have warm weather!
