Daisies and Plans

I'm currently back in Vicenza and enjoying my last week in Italy! 

I head back to The States on the 10th, at which point I have to face my future as a real-life graduate and get a real-life job. And I'm real-life dreading it. I guess the plan right now is to stay with my family while applying to places in Columbia, probably design-related stuff, maybe even part time retail stuff. Then move in with Travis by August, and build up my freelancing and work on my Etsy shop in the meantime.

I really am trying to take a breath and go with the flow, something I'm not very comfortable with. I like to have things planned, but that's just not where I am right now so I gotta roll with it. What's really important to me is that I enjoy my job. I'd rather work in a friendly coffee shop than as a designer in a negative environment. Freelancing full time is my goal, but it's hard to find work for that and I'm not entirely sure I'll ever be able to. 

Whatever I end up doing, at least I'll be wearing cute clothes!

Shirt: Dapper Ink in Greenville
Skirt: Target
Shoes: Converse

I wouldn't dare say I'm sick of Italy, but I'm getting anxious and antsy to go back! The Alps, Verona, and maybe The Mediterranean are still on the list.


  1. That last photo is really stunning.

  2. Cute outfit!!

    Freelancing is quite difficult and it sometimes feels like nonstop networking. Definitely focus on you and your happiness!!

  3. You look like a doll and I'm rooting for you in the job hunting field. It is tough, but don't get too down about it. Things will happen as they are meant to <3

  4. Love the location! You look adorable! Alex


  5. I'm in kind of the same place. I quit my job because I was getting burnt out on it, but like.... what now?

  6. I've been loving these Italy outfits! I know what you mean about trying to go with the flow, it can be hard! But it's also exciting so enjoy every minute. One of these days I have to get you to illustrate my portrait for my blog :P

  7. your skirt ! <3
