Yesterday, I started looking for jobs online in anticipation of my graduation this coming May. Yes, it's tough finding a job that I would love to do for the rest of my life. Yes, it's ridiculous how no one  is hiring right now. But you know what hit me with the most impact? The fact that I will probably have to wear work-appropriate clothes from now on. (I'm not sure what that entails, but just in case, I'm preparing myself now)

I still don't know what kind of job I'll land. I'm hoping it's something laid back where I can still wear most of the stuff I have in my closet. But this realization, nonetheless, inspired my outfit choice this morning... and will probably continue to do so for the rest of the semester.

For the longest time, I used to dress in mismatched, loud, child-themed outfits. Though I've given away most of my stuff, I still have a lot of articles left--hence the Hello Kitty paraphernalia you see every once in a while (ok, more like, EVERY post). I'll wear these remnants proudly before I enter adulthood (confirmed by getting a job and acting like a responsible human)

  7. I'm hoping you're able to find a job with a relax dress code! My dress code at work isn't too bad so I''m grateful. Although, I know other friends have jobs where they can literally wear ANYTHING they want, which is pretty darn cool!

  13. Heh. I just changed my major... So I still have a while in school. It's so funny. Being part of the normal working world seems so far off. But then again, so did the end of highschool back in the day. I actually sort of had some issues getting dressed this morning because I had a 40% of my grade Architecture history presentation. It's hard to gauge what's appropriate and what's just stupidly overdressed.

    Love the pop of red in the cardigan! :)

  18. You're too cute! You remind me of one of those people that come to our hotel every year for the Animaefest (spelling)! They dress up like Asian comic book characters and have a huge convention! Some of the outfits are amazing and they are some of the most intelligent people you will ever meet! Kiah

  19. I definitely have started dressing a lot more conservatively since I began working full time after I graduated. I think you can wear work appropriate clothes and still keep you cuteness!

  20. That shirt is so cute! And good luck job hunting, I know it's gonna be a huge shock for me too when I have to dress professionally EVERY single day.

  21. Hopefully you'll land a job with a lax dress code. Or at least one that's ''business-casual.'' If not, there's always the weekends! I really like all the fun layering going on in this outfit :)

  25. I love the last photo! I'm also worried about having to wear work appropriate clothes when getting a job because work appropriate clothes are normally super boring! I love expressing myself through clothes, it's just fun. Hopefully you get an amazing job and am still able to dress fun! :)

  26. Love your hair, you look awesome! :)

    And I still have a lot of childish clothes e.g. Hello Kitty Tees in my wardrobe; I can't seem to stop myself buying them hehe.
