house bitch

Hey babes!

Let me just tell you that you learn so much about your significant other when you finally move in together. I’ve recently found out that J likes maple syrup in his scrambled eggs, he’s incredibly tidy, and has a completely different sense of style about the apartment décor than myself. I like ranch on everything, am incredibly lazy, and I like random tables with random objects on them that serve no purpose but really they do.

I geeked out this afternoon on my favorite blogger (@Stonecoldbetch) and am obsessed with her house. Her style is chic, eclectic and functional. With some manly feels to it, I could combine both my style (which thank you Nicole for showing me in pictures what my style is) and J’s style.

So I’ve been white girling all afternoon, searching through pinterest, amazon, pier 1 and etsy and holy moly I have no idea how I would ever decorate this space because I’m pretty sure J would get confused and not feel at home, while being home. I’m so considerate. For now, we’re making wishlists on all the different pages and compromising. I think this is key.

My love caught a really intense head cold and has been zonked out for over 3 hours now, so I’ve been cooped up in the living room (which I love because our wood floors are amazing) cleaning and working. My inner house wife voice is making a mental list of things to pick up from the grocery store and what to cook for dinner tonight.

(ps- it’s sick how much I love cleaning, doing laundry, and tidying up. I’m a house wife bitch)

Interview Chic

Hey babes!

So as I mentioned a couple days ago, I have a big interview tomorrow for my dream brokerage firm, which has got me stressin hard. I’m still sniffling and achey but that hasn’t stopped my fingers and eyes from gorging every pin by pin on Pintrest. Of course when it comes to interviews, first impressions are MAJOR. I haven’t managed to quite figure out my exact sense of style. Ugh, my problems are so challenging.

While prowling through all the pins and keeping in mind how small of a budget I have and what’s currently in my closet, I narrowed down my top pics for the best looks for my big interview(s).  While my job doesn’t consist of a ‘dress code’ per say, professional chic is definitely what this girl is going for. The best part for me, I don’t have to hide my tattoos (yay, Texas is hot).

Dress for the job you want!

I die for long shirt dresses, just die. I love that it’s casual enough to be comfortable and stay cool in the heat, matched perfectly with a cool bag and simple accessories. It’s a well pieced look that also says “I’m pretty laid back but like to focus on details”.

Since I am relatively young and have a lot of people’s respect to gain, it’s always a good idea to have a solid blazer (or ten) to throw on over a freshly ironed white t and a great pair of skinny slacks with some respectable height heels. There’s nothing sexier to me than pale pink and dark colors, this screams “I work really hard to look this good and be the best”

Again, the ever so chic pencil skirt has stolen my heart. This look is flirty and fun, polished but not over the top. The attention to detail is so important, especially with the colors matching perfectly, that my future boss will take one look and think “this girl can match her pinks, she can probably write really great contracts” (okay that last one is a little far-fetched but I adore this look).

Dress your part, be the head bitch you know you are, show them your skills and personality but don’t get lost in that big corporate world!

Cheers to the future checks!
