high-waisted happiness

Hey Everyone, 

Life has been great lately and nothing but happiness. Going part time as a nurse has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! It has opened up so many opportunities to pursue a fashion career. I am currently interning as a fashion buyer! woo woo! It has been so much fun thus far, my coworkers are great. Last week we even had, make your own quesadilla and margarits in the office. I am learning a ton, excel spreadsheets aren’t half as bad as people make them out to be.  I actually really enjoy the organization, something I would have not appreciated in my younger years. The most exciting part of the internship is assisting in buying of course! Buying clothing on someone else’s money is pretty damn fun!

Of course, this part time nurse also has more time for school and blogging now! I’m waiting for my tripod to arrive and hope shooting solo will work out. In the meantime, my good friend helped me shoot this fun vintage high-waisted short. A steal at $10! what!? I love these shorts so much I may have to remake the pattern myself. If anyone is interested in the pattern let me know, after-all this little lady is almost a technical designer! Would anyone be interested in patterns and sewing DIY tips on the blog?

:: Outfit ::
Shirt : H&M
Shorts: Vintage 
Necklace: Anthropologie
Shoes: Asos

Congrats on the internship! I am glad that your dreams are coming true!!!

I love your shorts. I saw the high waisted title and was like that is a really cute skirt. Then my mind was blown when I saw it was pants! I love the polka dot pattern.
