Wow! It’s Wednesday already. I can’t believe how fast these weeks are flying by.

So a few weeks ago, I decided to take a mental break from work. Between teaching and running my business, I was working 65+ hours a week. Sure, the money was great, but I noticed that I was grumpy everyday and sleeping every weekend. I missed dinner most nights and missed precious time with my husband who was usually asleep by the time I got home. At first, I cut down my subbing days to 4 instead of 5, but have since cut it down even more to 3. Between the two jobs, I am now working almost normal hours and feel so much better. I have more energy, more time to spend with the hubs and feel happier overall. I now have more time to relax, read, and dedicate to my hobbies as well as pampering myself. What a difference a few hours makes! As I get older, I realize that what we do does not define who we are. It’s so important to have time for yourself….more important than all the money in the world. I hope someone else can relate and get something out of this. 🙂

Now to the outfit….another bright, cheery color for a happier, more sane Lizzie! I love any form of pink so this skirt was a great pick! I wanted to tone down this outfit a bit so the skirt could stand out on it’s own. I paired it with a super cute black and white top with a peter pan collar and bows all over. Accessories were minimal: a black and white jeweled necklace, a gold bangle and dainty gold rings. I added a black structured bag and black bow wedges to tie into the outfit.

Hope you all are having a great week so far!
