Rough Beginnings But Happy Endings


Hmm...This week was a tough one, but I am finally getting back to myself and returning to a more happy version of myself. Sometimes the worst thing you can do is let yourself go so far into a funk that you completely start losing sight of things that make you happy. I've had to remind myself that I'll be okay, but at some point I would start to lose it a little and become back in the dumps. I'm sure we all have those moments in our life, and I'm hoping I can finally put some of these thoughts behind me and move on.



I figured the best way to help brighten my day was to pick out one of my favorite dresses and then hightail it to work while sporting a better attitude. I really do love this dress and pairing it with a simple black cardigan and some flats with a hint of cognac looked very good to me. I also did my hair today:) I bought some fantastic Got2B hairstyling stuff and made myself a blowout to be proud of. So all in all, I could've had a terrible rotten day, but I decided for myself to wake up on the right side of the bed and give myself some confidence.


Now on to the weekend! I have an extra long weekend and won't be at work until Wednesday!

Dress, Urban Outfitters ($10)
Cardigan, Thrifted ($3)
Shoes, Ross ($9)
Coach Purse, Thrifted ($10)


  1. You look adorable. I love the dress and the combo of black and brown. Awesome.

    I'm so sorry you're going through a rough time right now. You seem to have such a great attitude...I wish you could send some of that my way!

    I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  2. I've been in a funk too lately. I'm glad to hear you're coming out the other side. I think I am too : ) And of course it doesn't help to dress the part!

  3. Great bag, Emily! I know what you mean about going through a funk. It's been pretty bad at my work lately, and that's really gotten me down. But you're right- sometimes you've just got to decide to have a good day and give it your best shot. :) Have a great weekend! I know I'll enjoy mine!
