So we are getting close to a store announcement / website launch and in between watching the building construction progress like a stalker (we are talking 2-3 times a day), making sure we will be open the second the building is ready and getting all of the orders in, I’ll be honest that I’m a bit overwhelmed. However, Shopgirl 2.0 vows to not be a stressed out mess this time. Life is too short to be stressed out. So I’ve been trying to take breaks and realizing that if something isn’t perfect or on time, it’s not the end of the world. In fact, it’s usually far, far from the end of anything. One thing that I can check off my list is getting dressed in the morning. That should not be stressful. So this outfit for example is an easy go-to for me: striped tee, cute blazer, boyfriend jeans. I mean really at the end of the day (more like mid day actually) I can strip off the jacket and the heels and work from home, but if I need to run out I can put those elements right back on and look put together. Stress-less dressing at it’s best, my friends. When in doubt, put a blazer on it.

  1. So exciting! I hope all of these weeks preparing go well! Treat yourself to a frosted donut when you're feeling stressed… always helps me! 😉

  2. I've been praying that the process would go smoothly for you this time around & that you wouldn't feel overwhelmed – please let me know once the online store is open so I can get my shop on! xoxo

  3. ah can't wait for the announcement and so excited to hear about it! I think this last several months have been good for you and the blog and I've seen the blog grow in terms of content (though you always have been strong). You do, in contrary to what you believe, seem more in control. A little stress is healthy for motivation! Good luck and you're looking lovely!! x

  5. Love your blog!! And congrats on the new store!! I love those those jeans and am going to order a pair online. How is the sizing? Do they run big or small? (Gaps website wasn't super helpful with this). Thanks!!
