A little play on words today, that's a "wrap" on my role as a consultant with our school division and I am featuring this bright and cheery wrap top. This is my last "office" outfit post for the summer and really indefinitely. Today marks the last day of my role as a consultant. The four years have flown by and it's hard to believe that that much time has already passed. I remember it so clearly, coming into the office, feeling extremely unsure of myself, not having a clue what the role entailed and being terrified that they were going to discover I was an impostor. Over the four years I was blessed to work with encouraging mentors, supportive colleagues and team members, and inspiring teachers. So though I am sad to be leaving the role behind, I am also grateful that I had this opportunity. The role lent me down a path of learning with, from and alongside many different people, from different perspectives, and as a result I am confident that I have gained the skills and friendships, that I can lean on as I enter a new role next year. I will be taking on the position of vice- principal and also heading up a new pilot program for junior kindergarten in that school. It's a new adventure altogether and I am excited to trade in some of my fancier day-to-day outfits for some more casual looks. NOT to worry though, my high heels and pretty dresses won't be exiting completely they just may be in rotation to more casual outfits :)
This outfit is one that I would classify into multiple categories, office, classroom, brunch, errands around town, etc. I purchased this bright and cheery top at the Loft while in Edmonton with my sister a couple of months ago. Funny thing is we both purchased the same top so I likely won't be getting that one as a hand-me-down pile next year. I was immediately drawn to the bright color of the top, and though I was adamant that I wasn't going to buy any more "yellow", I clearly had little self-restraint when it came down to it. I really enjoy the wrap look on tops and dresses, so I wanted to add that detail into my closet. It structures my body shape so nicely, cinching in at the waist with a pretty bow and separating my top and bottom, giving me definition. Overall, this is an outfit that will be on repeat for me this summer as it's super easy to pull together and the top would look super cute paired with some denim shorts.
Speaking of shorts, it's officially "summer" for me so we are packing up and moving to the lake for the next six weeks. I am hoping to get some clarity on where I want to take the blog in the next year and what are some reasonable expectations. See you next Friday!
