Big Hairy Work Dreams

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter

Good morning! Welcome to Monday. I know some people have today off for Martin Luther King Jr Day but I do not. It’s just another work day for me. So here’s another work day outfit.


Blazer – Le Tote (same) | Blouse – old (similar) | Pants – Old Navy (same) | Shoes – Kate Spade c/o Shopbop (similar)Β 

Anyone notice the hidden Chewie in the photo above?Β 

I spent several hours this past weekend working packet pick-up for the F3 Half Marathon that’s coming up this weekend. I’m working for them part time as a contractor doing customer service and, it’s weird to say, but I love it. I also love working packet pick-up for races. It’s hard to break into the racing management industry and it doesn’t always pay very much, but I love doing it.

I’m beginning to think that if I could make my living doing race management support part-time and personal training part-time I’d be a happy camper. And maybe running my own fitness studio (speaking of fitness, did you see my first post in my new Fitness Friday series?). So, I suppose I’d better get on trying to make that happen. Any suggestions on achieving a big hairy dream like that?

    Well, to state the obvious (and my high school class motto), don’t dream it, be it πŸ™‚ And you’re well on your way by working in the industry part-time, volunteering at expos, etc.

    You’re already on your way! Was thinking, talk to other likeminded fittrepreneurs (and i have a person in mind for you)!!

    That sounds like the perfect work arrangement πŸ™‚

    And are those d’ orsay flats? I have those on my wishlist and wondered how they fit. But now that I see the photos, they look like regular flats maybe?

    No clue, but lately I’ve been thinking about branching out on my own and doing freelance/contract/consulting work in digital marketing & analytics. I’m getting sick of the rat race of corporate life and my volunteer work with arts orgs has shown me there is a HUGE opportunity to provide that kind of expertise, of course, they don’t really have much in the way of budget. Sooooo I need to figure out how to make it work, like maybe offering affordable workshops.
