Treading Water

About Me

Hello everyone! So far I’m surviving my first week at my new job but there are a lot of things that are throwing some monkey wrenches into taking outfit photos right now.

However, I’ve been rewearing some outfits so here’s a tribute to what I’ve worn so far this week:

From left to right:

Swap the leopard shoes for my silver boat shoes and this outfit is pretty much exactly what I wore on Tuesday.

No changes from the white jeans and cobalt shirt for Wednesday.

I used this outfit photo from Mix & Match Fashion to inspire my Thursday outfit. I wore jeans with my pink shoes and my gray moto jacket and my white Target tee (which washed up perfectly, by the way) and got one compliment on my shoes!

I’m just having a really difficult time with my schedule right now, though, so I honestly don’t know when I’ll be able to take photos.

So, if you’re just here for the photos, you can leave and check back Monday or Tuesday. If you want to hear me moan about my schedule struggles, read on.

See, my husband, who just graduated with his bachelor’s degree in chemistry, also started his new job this week. His schedule is 6AM to 2PM right now and my schedule is 8AM to 5PM.

We only get a few hours to see each other after work before he goes to bed which we mostly spend making dinner and watching an hour of tv. Both of our work schedules are new to us (I used to work 9 to 5) and are taking some getting used to in terms of energy levels.

I’m also struggling with when I’m going to work out so that I don’t waste our together time in the evenings. I might have to become a SUPER morning person (FYI – I hate mornings) and get up at 4:30 AM so I can get in a workout at 5AM. Or figure out if I can workout at lunch and make it back to my desk in time. I’m currently signed up for a half marathon in August and I’m supposed to be leading a half marathon training group until the end of July. Not sure when I’m going to find the time to do all this running.

Plus there’s the puppy who needs love, attention, and to go outside to pee all the time. And there’s our weekend schedule that is currently ridiculously overbooked.

Which means I’m just trying to keep my head above water right now! I know you all understand but I feel weird leaving you hanging without some kind of explanation.
