Back To Work - Floral Mixed Print

Back To Work - Floral Mixed Print

Sunday's should come with a pause button, but since they don't I'm coming to you with another work wear inspo look.  Btw, the best time for new beginnings is NOW!

I work in a semi corporate arena where the dress code is not super tight, yet there are still certain things I can't wear.  That's why I'm always looking for ways to jazz up my work attire.  Did you catch last week's work wear inspo?  Would you wear this cute grey sweater dress to work?  

So for today's look I'm sharing this floral print mix get-up.  Can I just say I'm totally digging my own look.  It's so me, lol.  Now before you say to yourself that you'd never be able to pull this look off, you totally can.  For this look I was able to pair these two prints together because they share the same colors.  (READ 3 Incredible Easy Way To Mix Prints Like A Pro)  

It's really easy to put on a pair of slacks with a plain blouse, but how fun would it be to go bolder?  A bold color or print does wonders for your look and your attitude.  Of course I can no longer find my pants online, however these printed pants from Forever 21 or these floral print pants from Asos will work awesomely.  Again when mixing prints, don't forget to balance the look with a print that has the same colors. 

To complete this look, I added this thrifted fuchsia blazer for a pop of color and opted for these wine colored brogues.  Truth be told, a handbag this size isn't something I'd carry to work.  I'd downsize to this faux leather crossbody and if I could do this look over these cuties from Shein would probably be more suitable.

I'm Wearing My Feelings

It almost never fails that when Thursday hits, I have a moment of - "Is today Thursday or Friday"?  I mean I literally have to look at a calendar to confirm what day it is.  Does this ever happen to you?  Sometimes I wonder if the reason why I'm having these semi lapses in time is because I'm not happy about having to wake up early in the morning, travel 40-45 minutes (one way) to a job that doesn't excite me or challenge my creativity.

My career goals were simple.  I'd go to college, get my BS in nursing, work as a trauma nurse for 10-12 years, quit and then work for myself as a fashion stylist.  But we all know that even the best laid plans...  

Today's outfit sorta describes how I've been feeling lately.  All mixed up.  Although the first part of my career goals didn't pan out, I still have my sights set on being a successful entrepreneur.  For the last few years I've envisioned myself getting up for work only to call my manager and telling her 'I Quit'.  Today was one of those days.  

Honestly I think the reason I haven't done it is because I'm scared.  Whew!  I said it.  I think this is the first time I've actually embraced (outside of my head) that I'm scared.  I'm afraid of the unknown.  What if no one hires me?  What if a client hires me and I can't get the job done?  What if I don't make enough money to support my family?  What if!  What if!  What if!!!!!  Somebody said, the What if's and the Should have's will eat your brain. 

Maybe that why I haven't been as inspired lately.  I mean the struggle has been fo'real fo'real.  Just writing this post took a lot out of me.  Yet!  I won't be defeated.  I won't allow discouragement to beat the crap out of me.  Instead of letting fear get the best of me, I'm taken the advise I give my son when he's scared; just because you're afraid doesn't mean I let fear take over me.  

Fear aside, let me tell you how I fight these feelings.  My weapon of choice is my tongue.  Do you understand how powerful the tongue is?  It's more powerful than any two-edged sword.  Life (and death) lies in the power of what we speak.  That's why I make sure what I speak matches my goals.  Even at my lowest, I refuse to speak against my future.  Y'all I was about to start preaching, ha! ha! ha!.  

Anywho, I hope this post will uplift you in some way and I pray that you find the strength to go back, grab those dreams you though died and speak life to them. It's not to late.
