So I promised a fantastic update on changes in my life earlier this week, and then failed to deliver on the specified date. There's a reason.

Early this week, I was offered a job that would have been perfect for me - significantly more money than I'm making now in an industry much closer to the one I'd like to be in at a company that seems more in line with where I want to be. They wanted me to start next week. And I was so excited - finally, a light at the end of the smelly, fish food encrusted tunnel.

And I turned it down.

Please understand - I love my office. I have fantastic co-workers (for the most part), incredible benefits and a pretty laid back atmosphere. However... it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life. To be entirely honest, the longer I stay, the more miserable I am. It's a great place and an awesome company and I have the best boss EVER. But it's not my dream.

So when this new offer came along, I jumped on it. I felt this immense pressure lift and I truly thought it was the next step in my life. I was thrilled to get away from the stinky plant, long hours and paper cut ridden, never-ending filing.

After doing some research, getting some advice and crunching some numbers, it turns out that (financially speaking) taking the job would have left me worse off than I currently am. So I emailed them Thursday night and explained the situation. It was one of the most physically painful emails I have ever written.

I already regret it.

I need ice cream.


Love my outfit? Check back tomorrow night for more on color blocking, bright colors for fall and denim skirts. In the meantime, shop the look below:

Does it help at all that you look great? I know, probably not. Disappointment like this can feel crushing, I'm sorry you're going through this. I'm sure you'll make it out on top though! Stay positive, right? Oh, and lots and lots of ice cream.

So you're outfit. Amazing. Totally UN-you. But yet, you are rocking it!

And the job... don't worry. There's a better job for you. And you'll get there.

I'll go eat some ice cream for you. *hugs*
