I am finally coming out of hibernation (curse you winter 2014!) and have some new and exciting news to share! As I have mentioned before, I have always dreamed about going into interior design and/or getting into a creative field, but have never acted on it for a number of reasons. While it always sounded fun, I feared the paycheck (or lack there of) and risky nature of changing careers. After much internal debate, self-assessment, and discussions (sorry friends and family), I finally decided to go for it! A few classes and a couple of interviews later and I am starting to work part-time at one of my favorite design firms. I am beyond grateful and excited and ready(!) for this next phase, as terrifying as it is. Thank you all for your patience over the last few months and I plan to kick back into gear here at South of Main and also share all of the new things I am learning at the new gig!
While we’re on the topic of fresh starts… my spring/summer wardrobe needs a serious revamp. I can’t remember the last time I bought a new bathingsuit (2010?) and I think I have outgrown the jean mini skirt… check out these steals I found to ring in the season of sun!
Chambray and neon (best combo evah?) J.Crew beach cover up – it’s on sale ladies!
What’s a summer without Havaianas?
Anddd a cute new tee…
What are your latest warm weather finds? I’d love to know! This year I went for a lot of solids that I can mix and match with different accessories. I am trying to embrace a more minimalistic lifestyle (something I am not good at…) and my first step was tackling the closet!
Have a fabulous day!
PS – If you’re thinking about changing careers, here are a few helpful articles (and feel free to email me!)…design sponge, LearnVest, The Every Girl, Huffington Post… and a food blogger with an inspiring story on making a passion into a profession. I know I have read so many other good ones, but am totally blanking! All I have to say is – do what you love! Life is too short :)
