Ellen Tracy Suit

Now that I am venturing into the land of intern and hopefully professional, I'm having a grand ol' time looking for suits. You know me, I don't want to wear any old suit, I want a suit with character, with quirk! A suit like this one by Ellen Tracy via Macys. Character, check. Quirk, check. Bow tie blouse, added bonus.

It's a New Dawn, It's a New Day, It's a New Life...

A few days back I mentioned some big changes coming for me, it was pretty vague, I know. Well here is the scoop....

I have resigned from my full time job to pursue internships
and ultimately change my career path.

It's exciting, and honestly a bit terrifying. I've been in my current position for over 7 years. I love everyone I work with, they are really a second family to me. But I realized being here is holding me back; Holding back my potential for growth, for success, and for a better quality of life. So after much trepidation, I manned up and turned in my resignation. Now I can focus on wrapping up my schooling and getting some work experience. Wish me luck!

Now back to our regularly scheduled daily desires!

Gap Skimmer Jeans

outfit details HERE
Dearest Winter,
I love you, really I do. Ice skating at the Scuplture Gardens, light displays at Longwood Gardens, and Christmas of course, they're all fabulous winter things, but I'm ready for spring. Can we wrap up this gloomy weather already? These always skinny skimmer jeans are calling my name, and really, I can't go around wearing skimmer jeans and ballet flats in all this cold, cold rain. So why not call it a day, let spring take over a little early?
All the Best,

Ginger Gold Dress

I love this dress. From the adorable apple print to the sweetly pleated skirt to the perfectly bow tied belt.  Pair it up with a cardigan to keep warm until spring finally comes and these simply ladylike sandals and you are set to go. Anthropologie head to toe.

Bright Idea Wedge

Bright Idea Wedge in Turquoise - Bright Idea Wedge in Clay - Bright Idea Wedge in Yellow

Don't you just love when something you really like comes in more than one color? I do, obviously, I've talked about it several times in the past: here, here, and here for example. Well you can imagine my glee when I realized this super cute wedge by BC Footwear which I first spotted in the clay/peach combo was also available in a nice bright blue and lemony yellow. So great.

I still like the Clay color best, I feel as though I would get a ton of use out of it. 
Which is your favorite color?

School is Draining.

Hello Dearhearts,

I just wanted to pop in for a moment and let you know that yes, I am still alive and well. I've hit midterms at school and have just been swamped with work. But fear not! Changes are coming soon. I've made some huge (read: HUGE!!!) life decisions as of late and am excited to share them with you soon.

In the meantime, give me a follow over on Instagram & Twitter if you want to see what I'm up to on the daily. You can find me as @KatiePetix on both platforms.

Hope you are all well!
