I’m working as a school counseling intern right now. First time I’ve gotten back in the work field since I started grad school about 3 years ago. Not gonna lie, I felt kinda bad going back to work, even part-time, with such a little baby at home…but you gotta do what you gotta do. I’m trying to get this degree so I can peace the fuck out of grad school. So with work comes the dreaded “work clothes.” I used to dumb down my style and throw anything together at the last minute because I just didn’t care. This time around, I figure why the hell can’t I be myself at work too? No I can’t roll up in there with a cropped top, but I can still do my thing style-wise.
I used to feel like people would think I was doing too much if I expressed myself through style at work. I mean, my style can get pretty “out there” at times. But if I’m not being myself, then who am I pretending to be…and why? So I said fuck it. You gon get this wig. This nose ring. This bright ass lipstick. And these extra sunglasses. Enjoy.
Hello Goodwill. It’s me, ya girl.
So I copped these purple beauties from Goodwill a while ago. Couldn’t wear them because I had a big ol pregnant belly, but I circled back to them and they fit perfectly now. It’s something about going into a second hand store and finding unique, quality clothes for the low low that really gets me going. Who needs shoes when you have bomb ass purple trousers?
Summer is coming to a close and I’m just over here trying to wear everything in my closet before it gets too cold. The great thing about living in Atlanta though, is that it will be warm here until like November. So I can thoroughly enjoy these clothes before hoodie season pops off. I haven’t been able to wear most of this outfit since over 2 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I just had my second child about 3 months ago and decided once I was past that 6 week initial healing point then I would try to get control of my weight. And I sure did. Myfitnesspal got me right. I’ve been meal prepping, intermittent fasting, and jogging on my treadmill. Consistency is the key. Any other mommies out there working towards a postpartum goal?
Anyway, I’m always here for something high-waisted, cropped, or see through. Hence, this outfit.
Personal style, original art, travel, family, opinions…..
Just a general peek into my life.
