OOTD: Feeling Joy

I am just a few short weeks away from wrapping up my first school year teaching writing courses at a local university. I am already dreaming of days spent enjoying the lake with Lola and getting to explore on a couple day trips. At the same time, after about 2 weeks off I’m sure I’ll be ready to get back to it (and I’m teaching in July, so it won’t be too far away). I really love where I work. It is very fulfilling, but it can also be overwhelming (I’m a slow respond-er, so the grade pile never goes away). I’m happy to say that I was offered a position there again next year. Having some continuity with employment is GREAT. I’m so happy, and I’m trying to take a moment to feel the joy rather than worry about everything else coming my way (a new apartment and the bills, bills, and more bills that come with living on your own).


Getting towards the end of the semester is giving me some much needed breathing room, though. So much breathing room that I *gasp* actually wore an outfit that I wanted to photograph! Kiyonna helped with this since they sent me this cute Haven Faux Wrap Top.


Like everything that Kiyonna puts out, it’s high quality and a great fit. I wore a tank top with this because I typically don’t wear tops that “go up” at the bottom hem, but the top is actually long enough to not wear one. I slipped on a couple simple gold accent accessories and wedges and was on my way to dinner with my family.

How have you all been? Looking forward to any spring or summer time breaks/outings?

  2. Congratulations on the job offer! How wonderful that you have a position that is so rewarding. And I love this outfit. The color of the top is gorgeous and goes so well with the wedge sandals and jeans. Hope you enjoy your time off with Lola at the lake. 🙂
