I am a big fan of the whole cropped pant thing lately — the fact this is a cropped jumpsuit really gets me pumped up. While this particular look doesn’t necessarily do the jumpsuit justice, it definitely made more sense to layer up with my coziest oversized sweater and a faux fur vest to seal the deal!

In other news, wow, this week really flew. It was eventful for a number of reasons — the main one being that it was my last with the company I’ve spent the past three years working for, Shop It To Me.

Such a bittersweet feeling. Excited to be living in a fantastic new city and for the opportunities it has and will continue to bring, but sad to end that chapter of my life. Huge thank you to my manager, all of my amazing colleagues, and the bloggers I’ve worked with along the way. I am a whole lot smarter, more fulfilled and inspired because of you!

I have some fun projects in the works that I am really looking forward to, but all in all this is the least planned out my future has ever been, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Kind of a crazy feeling to not know what’s coming next, but I guess that’s all just part of the adventure! You know what they say‚Ķif your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough. Well, here’s to a little bit of fear, a lot of freedom, and most importantly, following your dreams!
