Sunday Lately :: Week 159

Jan 14, 2018


We are changing things up a little bit for SL 2018 and bringing on co-hosts!  This week’s featured host is Rachel from Glitter & Engine Grease. Rachel is super sweet and has the CUTEST little man.  (You’ll probably want to eat him up as soon as you see him!)  Go say hello!


Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, which is fearlessly led by Angelica (Gardening in High Heels) and myself. We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!

This week’s themes: Redoing, Altering, Borrowing.

Redoing. My expectations of myself.  It’s hard because I’d like to think that I can get everything done…but this second job element is really taking it out of me.  I am at the point where I need to make a decision and I don’t know that I’m ready to.

Altering. Some of my wardrobe to be a little more office friendly.  (Are you seeing a trend of what is consuming my thoughts right now? Haha.)  I haven’t worked in an office setting in over three years and I don’t have clothes for it anymore.  Three years ago is about when I threw out all of my storebought items and started sewing my own wardrobe.  Which, from what you’ve seen, is loud and graphic and not totally office-ready.  But that’s because I didn’t need it to be, I was working from home.  So now I’m scrambling to find something that’s okay to wear.  I think I need a few more cardigans / layering pieces.  And possibly a blazer.  And some non-tshirt type tops.  Sounds like I need to go through my fabric stash and slowly chip away at it.

Borrowing. This quote from Mindy Kaling.  Because seriously 2018.  You’re killing me a little bit and we’re only 14 days in.  I’m ready for this transition period to be over, and I can handle it with grace and me not falling asleep at 8:30 on a Friday due to pure exhaustion.


Disclosure: As always, you’ll find some affiliate links scattered within my post, which means I receive a small amount of compensation if you end up purchasing something I’ve recommended.  Keep in mind that I link these companies and their products because of their quality and not because of the commission I receive from your purchases. The decision is yours, and whether or not you decide to buy something is completely up to you.  Purchasing from my links does not alter the pricing in any way for you, it simply helps feed my sewing, creating and blogging habits.  Thank you for your support!

    I’m loving that quote right now. I guess I need to bust out the lip gloss.

    Hi Katy! Thank you so much for that nice introduction! I LOVED Mindy in the Mindy Project and was so sad to see the show end. I think I may have to post that quote somewhere in my house! 🙂

    I have not worked in an office in almost 6 years. It would be tough to change it up. I am sure you will do amazing! I look forward to seeing your new “office makes”
