Y’all working full time is no joke! I’m on my third week now and man is it a major adjustment. There seems to be a lot less hours in the day when you spend 9 of them at work. I am slowly learning how to balance everything, but it definitely is a change. I give so much credit to bloggers who work full time and keep up a blog, and a social life. It’s not an easy task!

Learning to say no to things is also a big adjustment. I’ve worked part time since I was 15. I worked while also going to school, and usually had multiple other side projects and little jobs that I did. However, that just isn’t going to work anymore! There’s just not enough time to balance it all. So bare with me as I get the hang of things. I’ve found shooting blog content on the weekends and scheduling posts ahead of time is a definite help! I’ve also learned to work in my random one hour breaks between work and seeing the boyfriend or before bed.

Matt and I got to shoot this outfit last weekend after church. While I do think this top is cute, it is a little big. Being so petite seriously has it’s challenges y’all! I can’t just order something off line and know it’s gonna fit, and one size fits all pieces is just a joke! I’ve found ways like tucking shirts in or knotting them up helps. However, this top my be being passed a long to a friend.

    The struggle is so real with balancing a full time job and blogging and being social with friends and family. Sometimes I really wish there were more hours in a day!
    I love this top! It’s so flattering on you!

      Thanks Kim! I definitely need to start planning my shoots ahead of time and not on the fly.
