The New Girl

i started a new job at the beginning of May. A new path for me... it was a scary decision to leave my previous job but it just wasn't a good fit for me any more. i had thought i would stay there for many years, for a long time i was happy but my last 6 months with them were incredibly stressful and took a terrible toll on me. So it was time to move forward.

Paper: Girls Paperie, Tags, Girls Paperie, Elle's Studio, Mist: Maya Road, Chipboard Alpha: Girls Paperie, Rose Button and sequins: Girls Paperie, Velvet Flower: Maya Road, Other: Tiny Attacher.

So far things are going really well. i am working with a great team, everyone was really friendly and supportive from the get go. It's a relaxed environment, which is ideal for me. The company genuinely care about their staff & i have witnessed this in many ways. i think that's a rare thing to come by in these hard times. i also work on flexi-time which makes things a lot easier for me. i've just had my 3 month probation review last week and it went well so i thought i'd let you all know about this new journey ( i made this page a few months ago). In all honestly it's not exactly where i'd like to be in life, working in an office makes me feel suffocated. i think that's the creative, free spirit in me. But for now this is my everyday 5 days a week.

You can't see too much of it, but in case you're wondering, this outfit is typical work wear for me. We're not under any pressure to dress super smart, we even have 'casual Fridays' every week. But i feel more in the mindset for work if my outfit is a bit fancy and professional. And if i can work in a vintage piece like the blouse above then all the better.
