I've got an Itch | Burgundy Skater Dress and Leather Jacket

Marvelous Monday, beautiful readers!



Recently I've been wanting to do something exciting. Don't you ever feel that way? I think that my life has become extremely routine. The first two years out of college  my life wasn't so mundane. I went to Tibet to teach English at a Buddhist monastery the first year out of college and I worked on a political campaign where everything would happen so fast in the second year. Now that I work in a slower office setting, I feel like I want to break out of the routine. Not that routine is bad, mind you, but I've just got this terrible itch to move my feet and do something crazy. 





Got any tips for breaking routine? 

Top: H&M Jacket
Dress: Boohoo.com dress
Accessories: Loulous necklace, Icing wayfarers, Juicy Couture clutch
Shoes: Zara pumps

  1. What a beautiful dress! The pairing of the bold jacket is perfect. Maybe you should start off small, and plan weekend adventures. Bundle up some excitement that will carry you through the week, and make you look forward to the oncoming weekend :)

  11. Such a cute dress, and of course it looks awesome with your leather jacket.

    I'm all about routine (yes, I'm boring), but sometimes it's fun to spice things up a bit!

  13. Move to England and turn this blog into a travel blog! Just kidding. I feel the same need to do something exciting, especially in wintertime (probably all this weather has got me down). Perhaps a weekend trip or a visit to friends in another city is in order?

I feel exactly the same, about the finish my degree and have no idea what to do, I hate routine, well I like to have my own routine but like to work and go to uni and teach and blog and no idea what to do! Lol so I know how you feel - i'm pretty lost. xxx

  18. I adore that dress paired with a masculine moto jacket. You look pretty. I can attest to work life that it can get boring with an everyday routine like turn the pc on, lights, coffee etc etc. it's ok to break from a routine so go for it Deb.

  20. Just take a few days of, pack your bags, go to the airport, browse through their special offers and book a flight :)
    I've always wanted to do this but never had the courage to finally take the last step to the airport. Maybe it's worth a try? :)
