As usual, here is my (Gabi’s) little slice of ridiculous outfit posting. Another shout-out to V for taking my outfit photos (aka holding down the button and not telling me if she is taking photos and me asking her to take more). But it works. I don’t know if they’re necessarily “blog-worthy” but hey, I’ll share them anyway.
Well, I realized you can’t even see the detail of the dress that I’m wearing. So here I am, including some really awesome mirror shots so you can see exactly what it is I was wearing.
I mentioned in my last post that I had just started a new job at Roadtrip, a boutique in the Byward Market. Well, I’ve been there a few weeks now and am really enjoying it. One of my favourite things is that it’s a bit slower paced than selling shoes in a mall—which means I can dress up and layer and wear high heels for my shift—and not have to climb ladders/shelves or be constantly running back and forth. Another bonus is that I get to wear all the shoes that I own! My last job was at Aldo, and when each new season rolled around it typically meant buying new shoes and having something from the new collection. This means I have a lot of shoes I haven’t gotten to wear too much since most are a bit too dressy for my day to day.
I have been quite busy with school, as well as my two volunteer positions. Not only that, but my little rescue kitty got fixed this week which meant some coordinating of my schedule. I have been just wanting to hug the little guy constantly cause he’s a bit wobbly and extra cute from the anaesthesia and pain meds they gave him. Tonight I may have laid on our living room floor with the two cats and bunny running around singing songs to them and Val…. just maybe.
So anyway, I have been having a lot of fun dressing up for work. It’s been fun outfit planning, photographing and sharing. I have a looooot of clothes and shoes, and it finally feels like I have an occasion to wear them all. Because quite honestly, if I wasn’t working, I’d be wearing flowy tshirts, leggings or jeans and boots all the time.
Well. I wish I had some more silly things to share with you on this week’s edition of Gabi attempting to be a style blogger… but alas, I don’t think there is too much. This past weekend was spent getting certified in First Aid/CPR and spending time with the pets and friends. We didn’t get to drink enough wine (see: First Aid course) but hopefully this weekend we will get to get rectify that.
Hope you all are having a great week so far! Also… the title of this post comes from the Vitamin String Quartet‘s tribute to Good Charlotte. Yes, you read this correctly. Orchestral Good Charlotte. Enjoy.
