MIA due to New Job

Top: Very Old
Skirt: Kohls $11.99
Shoes: Kmart $14
Hello Everyone I am so sorry I have been MIA. I started at the hospital 3 weeks ago and just haven't had time to blog. Let me just start out by saying that these past 3 weeks have been the most stressed I have ever been. This job is so totally different than what I thought it was going to be and nurses should be paid way more for the work they do. The past 2 days I didn't even get a lunch break and worked 13 hour days. It is intense and school did not prepare me at all. Anyways, I am off for 5 lovely days and then go back. I love my patients but it is just very busy and overwhelming. I am so tired at the end of the day I don't know what to do. I do not think I will be able to do this forever. 
  Today I am off and spent the day being totally lazy after I took my car to get fixed this am. No I am enjoying this cooler weather sitting in the ssunroom hitting up pintrest! :) I am about to go lay in the hammock with our new kitten and relax even more. I hope you all have been doing very well and please stay tuned for stories from the hospital I am sure I will have. I am getting excited because I get my first paycheck next week! yay me! lol I hope you all have a lovely day! XOXO

Inspiration from The Red Dress Boutique co facebook
Blouse: Kmart $12
Cami: Walmar $4
Skirt: Lulu's Online Clothing Boutique $36
Earrings: Burkes Outlet $3
Bracelets: Forever21 $6
A white blouse will always be in style as a classic piece that everyone woman should own. I scored this top a couple of weeks ago on sale from Kmart for $12. I had seen it in the store the beginning of the summer but did not want to pay $24, then it went down to $18 and then FINALLY to $12. Thank goodness they still had my size. I love the way it flows and the chiffon material make it perfect to wear right now. I had seen this skirt at another online  boutique but it was more than the site I finally ordered it from and the top they had that went with it was around $40. So I knew I could closely copy my inspiration photo with this blouse. How do you ladies think I did? xoxo

 I have been slacking on the blog being busy preparing for work next week. :/ I am excited and nervous about starting. Yesterday was a lazy day grocery shopping, mani/pedi by myself :) (trying to save money), and watched the Hunger Games with the boyfriend. He just started classed back last Thursday for his last semester in Electrical Engineering. He will graduate with 2 associates degrees and has started working with a friend to get electrical hours and his teacher is looking at some local jobs to get lined up for him. :) He is so smart and will do anything he sets his mind too. I start on Monday at my new RN job! ahhh excited but nervous. I don't want to work all the time and want to have time to enjoy my life so I don't get burnt out on nursing. I had to sign a 2 year contract for after my orientation is up and it about killed me. I hate commitments like that especially when it is to work. I am planning on enjoying this last part of the week and weekend. Next week I have classes M-F all day and then that Saturday is my birthday!!!! The big 25. I plan on celebrating well! lol Hope you all have a lovely day! xoxo

Bracelets: 1) gift 2)Forever 21 $1.99 3) Forever 21 $6.99
I just realized today that I only have 20 more days until I start my RN job at the hospital. AHHHHH. I am so nervous and scared and I am sad that I won't be able to work as much at the boutique. My boss is sad about the whole thing. :/ I am still going to try to work a little there but I am sure my work schedule is going to be CRAZY on the Oncology floor. The first week is nothing but classes from 7a-5p. :/ I haven't even heard from my recruiter since I accepted the offer and tomorrow I have my occupation/physical health screening, I am suppose to dress comfortable to run a treadmill. lol That should be fun. I will be sure to take a picture of my "work out" attire for it. The weekend was great we went to a cookout Friday night, Saturday I work all day at the store and we were packed for tax free weekend and the sale my boss is having, Sunday we went bike riding and my boyfriend and I just hung out and watch documentaries. Speaking of everyone should watch Food Incorporated and you will look at the food you eat very differently. I think I am going organic and vegetarian after I saw it. Ewww. Well wish me luck on my appointment tomorrow. xoxo

Copy Cat on a Budget

Dress: Express (December 2011) Christmas Gift
Clutch: Ebay $7
Shoes: Rue 21 $20

So this may not be the exact look but it is my version with items out of my closet. I love re-creating looks celebrities are pictured wearing. It is my all time favorite past time now since Pintrest has came around. :) Oh I do love me some pintrest! You can find me under Jessica Hardin. I have so many pins for fashion it is not funny. So I go through and try to re-create some of them with similar items I may have in my closet. I love Audrina in this navy dress and new I could re-create her look. How do you ladies style celebrity looks from your closet? Whats your favorite place to find inspiration? xoxo

Weekend Getaway

Top: BOGO Free (2 yrs ago) Charisma Boutique $15 (for 2 items)
Jeans: Cult from Ebay $20
Clutch: c/o Charisma Boutique for Graduation
Shoes: Guess from Ross $25
This weekend my boyfriend and I went to  the beach one state over to visit some of his family. We went for 2 nights and went out one night to dinner and then to a bar on the beach. It had been raining there that day so the air was chillier than I am use to with the breeze coming off the ocean. I was glad I opted for jeans. It was great to get away but I always love coming back home to a normal routine. We don't like the hussel and bussel of the busy touristy areas. It is fun for a change but not for long stays. It was nice to see his family since we don't see them all that much. Hope you all had a great weekend! xoxo

Unbearable Heat Wave.

Tank: Charisma Boutique $14
Shorts: Charisma Boutique $39
Necklace: Charisma Boutique $27
Bracelet: Charisma Boutique $18

So when I got to work today my boss had boxes of new clothes that had came in that she wanted me to try on to take pictures of. After I put on this outfit she told me to wear it for the rest of the day so people could see it on someone. Everytime we wear stuff from work when we are working it sells. I LOVE this outfit! The shorts are TO DIE FOR! The scalloped hem line is adorable. So I put them on hold to get for myself next weekend for "tax free weekend." :) Plus right now we are having a sale with 20% off all apparel. :) Mine kind of deals! I can't wait to see what I can do with these shorts. I was thinking they would be cute in the fall with a pair of tights. We will see. Oh and in the picture can you tell I had been sweating?! The heat index here is 101* and our air conditioner is acting up at work. The thermostat is set at 70 and it is 79* inside our building right now! ugh! How are you ladies holding up in this weather?!
