What I've Been Up To (Unpublished Photos!)


hi! wow, I haven't posted in 10 days and it's definitely time for a little update on what I've been up to! From traveling to St. Louis for a wedding to officially starting my job, it's been a busy couple of weeks, to say the least. I'm excited to catch you all up on what I've been doing!


Let's start with Labor Day... that Monday itself was actually pretty gloomy, so I had a chill day at home. However, Labor Day weekend was pretty fun because my boyfriend stayed with me at my house and we tried a new brewery, a new-to-us restaurant, visited the farmer's market (our flower's pictured at the top!), played tennis... and just had fun hanging out. 

A couple days later, on Wednesday, I drove to St. Louis for his sister's wedding. My grandparents live close to his hometown so my mom and I drove down together and spent the latter half of that week hanging out with them before I went to the wedding on Saturday. 


On Thursday I wore this dress for dinner with lace-up sandals (sold out, similar here and here). This is my first piece from Farm Rio and I am so pleased with both the quality of my dress and what the company stands for... they have the cutest printed pieces (need this top). How cute are these pants in the matching print of my dress?

Shoutout to my Revlon for making my hair look really, really fabulous Thursday night. BEST blow dryer ever. (too bad I started profusely sweating right after this picture so the perfect blowout didn't last long... tmi? sorry)




To the wedding, I wore this dress (available for less here and here on RTR


My mom and I drove back on Sunday and quicked stopped at my brother's for dinner to celebrate his birthday. Then, Monday morning I woke up and started my job!!!

I work 8-4 but get an hour for lunch, so it really isn't bad at all. I also shouldn't even say "work" quite yet, as these first two weeks are onboarding and more of a learning experience than actual work. It's been so informative and I feel like I'm getting a lot out of it, plus I love that they are easing us into the job as opposed to throwing us in without knowing what the whole deal is. If you want the scoop on my job, check out this blog post I shared here.


OH- I've really been into smoked salmon lately. We get ours at Trader Joe's and it's absolutely fabulous.

So, yeah, that's pretty much everything! I wish I had more content to share on Instagram because I miss connecting with all of you... hopefully, once I get into more of a routine I will be able to get back to posting!

What's new with you?
xoxo
