Skirts and Suburbia

Sequin Blazer- H&M, Dress (worn as a top)- vintage c/o When Decades Collide, Skirt-Forever 21, Shoes- c/o Lulu*s, Clutch- Topshop, Ring-YSL, Necklace- House of Harlow

I'm still making adjustments to my new schedule and this week has been the toughest of them all. Don't get me wrong I don't miss work, but with my budget allocated entirely to my rent, car, and Christmas gifts I have to stay at home as much as possible to avoid overspending. Plus, it makes working on my projects even harder with limited means. However, that isn't going to keep me from chasing my dreams! Most days I wake at 7am and work into the night only braking to eat and work out. I swear my house was cleaner when I worked full-time! I've been playing with party outfits for the holidays and this is one of my favorites. I love the glitter, leopard and rich color all together! All I need is some tights-brrrr!

Those shoes! I am in love!

Hope everything works out with the new schedule. Us creative types always have an excuse as to why we are messy. We are constantly being inspired, right?

Love this look!! I tried to order those shoes after you wore them in another post, but they were sold out :-( Love your blog; don't let your new limitations prohibit your greatness! :)

Helena from BrooklynBlonde said...

Love this! Those shoes and the color of them are amazing! And I'm with you on cleaning more when you work. When I take days off and tell myself "i'm going to clean the house up.." The day passes me by and I end up getting nothing done in that regard! You're not alone :)

Have a great weekend!

Amanda said...

You look adorable! I was unemployed for roughly three months, and although I didn't cook as much as I did when I had a job, or make my bed until right before bedtime, or shower until after noon...getting up every morning at the same time kept me sane. Although it may be unsettling to not know where your next paycheck will come from, enjoy this relaxing time, don't feel too badly about not being on schedule and know that a great job is just around the corner.

Love, Life, Lace said...

Gorgeous!! Those leaves are quite pretty too :).

Have you made any decisions as far as whether you'll go back to work anytime soon? Or do you think you're going to try and make something happen w/ the blog? :) Either way I'm excited for you!

Dylana Suarez said...

Dear, this is one my favorite outfits of yours . . . and the photography is beautiful, and the setting, too! It all just comes again so nicely. You look so adorable and pretty, and it makes me want to dress up in a skirt and heels and go dance! I live in suburbia, too, and as much as I love the city, the suburbs still has a little place in my heart. The streets always look so pretty when the trees are gold! Have a lovely weekend!

xoxo,

Dylana

Taylor, this outfit is absolutely gorgeous (as is the backdrop) and those shoes are to die for! The burgundy shade is perfect for the time of year.
I hope your individual projects are going well. Stay strong, focused (although it sounds like you already are) and don't give up on your dreams - you will be rewarded in the end!
Have a lovely weekend.

Shoes are awesome, as are the super pretty autumn leaves! LOVE!

herwaisechoice said...

You look so gorgeous and I love the soft elements with the bold shoes in this look! I especially love the dress worn as a top... the print is beautiful and not overwhelming even though it is leopard. And you are so incredibly blessed that there is still a gorgeous autumn backdrop for you to take photos in!

Have a lovely day Taylor!
