Why have one Peterpan collar when you can have three

Fossil Watch
Lime Crime Cosmopop lipstick

Hi all! You guys have certainly brightened up my day. Its funny that I'm not the only one that buys things because of music stars, I'm not alone! Your comments are so sweet, and I love you all.

I've been quite sad lately and have been depressed at work. I've been working as an assistant buyer for a fashion company for nearly 2 years now, but unfortunately the company is not for me. And I will resign this week. I think a break is needed for me, and I would like to find out what it is I would want to do in life.

It's most likely I'll stay in the fashion industry, since I absolutely love clothes and styling and design. I just hope an opportunity comes up soon, but in a new company that I'll love.

What industries do you guys work in? I would love to know!

Today I'm wearing a triple layer Peterpan collared shirt by Topshop, and some lovely denim shorts by Forever 21. I'm loving the collar on this, its so quirky and makes an outfit unique. I've also layered green on green clothing, in a montone fashion, and paired it up with a contrasting orange lip colour. It's been raining in Sydney so I took some photos against a green wall :)


Also, please vote for me in this "We love Wool" competition! I would love all your support!

You look great, and you're wearing again "my" favourite belt:). I hope you'll find out your way. But fashion is quite wide industry so I'm sure you'll choose sth what will fit you :). I personally work in law, but I'm just starting so it's still sooo exciteing for me, hope it'll stay this way:). Kisses,xoxo

Great outfit...I love the colour of the top and the peter pan collars. I work as a freelance editor as a day job and write in my spare time but I'm now going back to university to retrain and change directions...now is the time to do it so you're very brave. Wishing you the best of luck :)

Natalie! I hope your work blues go away... finding a new job/career is both scary and exciting. Your calling will find you, though. :) No worries.

Your Topshop top is freakin' adorable. I would love one for myself.. maybe I should DIY a collar, then I can pair it with anything!

xx Love & Aloha

Aww...well a nice break is what we need in just about anything we do. And yes, please stick to fashion because you are so wonderful at it.

I don't work right now since I'm still in school, but right after I graduate, I do hope that I will raid some elementary or high school and create music programs that will thrive. :)


Carina said...

Ahhh I loove the triple peter pan colour! The shorts are gorgeous also :)

I'm not working yet! But I'll be studying visual communication at uni this year.. I'd love to work within illustration & graphic design :)

Megan Hattie said...

awesome layered collars! I love this entire outfit, from the cardigan to the shorts! Cuuuute. And that's good you are resigning, on to the next adventure! I'm kind of depressed lately too, I just moved to a new au pair family for the month and I'm working upwards of 55 hours a week for hardly any pay... pretty sure I'm getting screwed. oh well.

The triple collar is adorable! I work in retail right now at Old Navy and a flower shop (which I willbe turning in my notice there this week hopefully.) It is my dream/goal to be a successful fashion designer though. Good luck finding a new company! Everything will work out! :)

I love those shoes! I've been eyeballin' them for a while now. Sorry to hear about your job. I work in the fashion industry, too, and every assistant buyer I have worked with is always running around ragged, overworked and under-appreciated. It's a tough job, for sure. Hopefully you will find something that you enjoy a bit more!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Heather, 29 Skirts said...

Wow, I LOVE how you mixed all these different pieces together. This is really well done.

Good luck with your job search! I used to work full-time as an in-house copywriter for an e-commerce site that sold women's clothing. The company went out of business in December, and I've been unemployed/freelancing ever since. Like you, I want to continue working in the fashion industry but at the right company. It's so important to be in an organization that's, well, organized and has good coworkers.

I love your peter pan collar top! & it's a shame that you're resigning, but if the job isn't something that you enjoy then I think It's great that you're moving on :) & I don't work in any industry at the moment lol, as I'm still in high school, but I'm hoping to go into fashion.

oh i adore your peter pan collar! love the mix of textures and prints here - definitely one of my favourite outfits from you! thank you for all your sweet comments btw, i hope your job hunt goes well. I think all of us come to a point in our lives when your workplace isn't as enjoyable as you want it to be and a reassessment of your goals and career needs to be addressed in order to be happy and get back "on track"

hope all goes well for you!
