Day #27 - 30 Day No Shopping Challenge - Eye On The Prize

Outfit: 
Striped Tank - Forever 21
Cardigan - Express
Leggings - H&M
Jean Shorts (really can't see them but I am wearing em) - Forever 21
Shoes - Mandee


Only 3 more days to go! I can literally smell the burning of money... I know I shouldn't go bananas, and I more than likely won't when I go back to my happy place this week - aka The Mall. Now that I've seen my savings grow, I'd like to keep it that way. But, I will say that all the online browsing and blog reading has put many ideas in my head for my summer wardrobe... and this challenge has put me behind so I'll have lots of catching up to do.

I have nervous energy as I'm starting a new job today. Having a job I love is extremely important to me as I'm one of those people who takes a lot of pride in being able to say I work hard and like my job. I'm can't just work at any job as I'd feel I'd be giving up on writing and the goals I set out for myself years ago in college. While if I had to take a job I didn't like solely for my family's sake, I would, but I think I'd always have a feeling of unfulfillment doing a job I know my heart isn't in. However, I'm very excited to start a new chapter - one that I hope is the best yet!

You are beautiful, and I love this outfit! I also took part in a 30 Day No Shopping Challenge, and while it was difficult, it also taught me how to work within my own closet and what I own! But I sort of went nuts shopping when it was done...the inner shopaholic simply can't be tamed.
Congrats on your new job! I hope you enjoy it.
