Back To School With Pinterest Fave Suburban Faux Pas

Happy Monday all!

Today is the first day of my doctorate in social work program! It feels good to finally accomplish a goal that a few years ago I didn’t think I could achieve.  A couple years ago, I applied for a doctorate program but I didn’t get in.  That rejection took the wind out of my sails and I put my pursuit of a advance degree on the shelf. Earlier this year I decided to stop wallowing in negative thoughts and applied again for my doctorate in social work.  I know being a full time employee and student is going to be hard but it’s so worth it.  I know I have a lot to bring to the table and I really want to be an agent of social change.  Now don’t get me wrong,  I’m nervous as heck about returning to school.  It’s been 19 years since I last seen a text book! I’m confident that once  I get myself re- acclimated to school life things will go smoothly.  .

So that brings me to my Pinterest Fave Suburban Faux Pas.  I absolutely LOVE Krystin’s sleek and super polished style. I have tons of her outfits all over my  Pinterest boards.   Krystin, like me,  is a lover of printed skirts. To commemorate my first day of school, I chose this pin because it reminds me of an ultra chic school uniform.  Honestly if I could raid Krystin’s closet, I would do it in a heartbeat!

Have a wonderful day!
