Life Update + Short Sleeve Boxy Cropped T-Shirt

I left to North Carolina for work on Monday, July 16th.

I flew home on Thursday, July 19th to spend two days with Jax for his 5th birthday. Leaving back to North Carolina again on Sunday, the 22nd.

I had only planned on being out in North Carolina until the 31st, but here I am today, still in North Carolina on August 4th. Home sick. Missing Jax. Living out of a suitcase that only had 10 days worth of outfits in it.

…. I’m losing my job.

I have worked in my position for the last 9 years of my life. It has been nothing but rewarding for me and I have learned so much. Unfortunately, with big companies, sales and acquisitions may happen… Which is why I am where I am today.

I came to North Carolina to train an amazing new team of employees here at the new beautiful office in Raleigh. The people here are wonderful, within the company and on the outside. Southern Hospitality is a real thing. I was presented with an option to relocate here, but that was a hard pill for me to swallow. Have you ever relocated to a new state? Not only a new state, but clear across the country? Moving so far away from Utah friends and family is something I can’t really grasp.

The last two months of my life, after finding out about the relocation, have been a whirlwind. It has been full of emotions- sadness, excitement, anger, depression, smiles and tears.

I had to say goodbye to some of my closest friends and employees that I had the opportunity of getting to know. That was one of the saddest days of my life. I met some of the most amazing people in my career. I grew so much as a person. I was truly proud of what I had accomplished in life and where I was at in the moments leading up to the news I didn’t want to receive. Not many can say that of themselves.

I can honestly say I am ready to close this chapter of my life and start on the next.

But through it all, I am still a shopaholic.

So because I am living out of a suitcase, with 10 days worth of clothes, I thought I would stop in at Target and see if they had any cute items out here that I needed to buy.

AND THEY DID!

I fell in love with a new label they have called “Wild Fable“, and I must say, I AM IN LOVE! Tons of great items in this label!

Super comfy and such good quality. I will have to share more of what I bought on another post, but for now I wanted to share the Short Sleeve Boxy Cropped T-Shirt. It’s only $8!!! The quality of this shirt is amazing. It is so soft!! I love the material. It fits well and can be worn with lots of things. The sleeves and bottom are cropped/cut, so there is not an actual hem on it.

So until next time, enjoy a photo of me wearing my White Boxy Cropped T-shirt in my home away from home!

Hi loves! I am excited to share my outfit details from our Zoo Day last weekend! We could not have picked a more perfect day to go! The sun was shining and there was a small wind breeze so the heat wasn’t entirely unbearable! The weather was absolutely perfect!

I’m always on the hunt for new clothing finds.. confessions of a shopaholic over here! So I found a store that I absolutely love in one of our local Salt Lake City malls called Bronxton. They don’t sell clothing online right now though, unfortunately! I recently bought my top and floral shorts from there and let’s just say– It was love at first sight! I love these two pieces because I mix and match them with other items!

Like me, try to find versatile items that you can mix and match with other things! It really helps you expand your wardrobe!
