April 12, 2018 – The Blues (OOTD #265)

I think the recent trend of a short sleeveless shift dress layered over top of a long sleeved shirt is one of my favorites.

Maybe it’s just because I’m a sucker for layering, and I love any kind of trend that allows me to put multiple pieces together in a stylish way. It allows me to feel trendy while still maintaining my love for piling as many clothes on my body at once.

I think my least favorite trends are the ones that require a single niche article of clothing that doesn’t really lend itself to creative outfits. I’m thinking like, some of the voluminous off the shoulder blouses that were all over the mall boutiques last summer — they were super cute, but they didn’t lend themselves to layering at all, and for that reason, I didn’t really buy up a bunch.

The job search is a little over a month old now, and unfortunately, I still haven’t come across anything that works for me. I actually was offered one that I really wanted to take, that paid well and that would allow me to take off for two weeks to go to Nepal, but I wasn’t going to be able to perform the job duties properly…so alas, I am still unemployed.

I’ve applied for some that really interest me, but getting one of those employers to actually contact me and then interview and then hire me is such a struggle. I wish I had majored in something more job-friendly, like business or engineering. Sigh. I’m going to have to do this every summer for four more years.

Hey, maybe this blog will have taken off by then and I’ll be paying off my student loans comfortably with just sponsored posts. Seems feasible, right?

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame! Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com!
