This is our last goodbye

I have tragic news to share, I'll no longer be getting a second bedroom to use as a closet. Well, that and the Grumpy Danish and I broke up. We've been married almost 6 years and realized it wasn't really working. Neither of us were very happy any longer. We don't hate each other, we just don't really love each other any more. So, that's what's been going on lately. It happened last Saturday, so the last week has been a little rough, it's a big change, but I'm doing ok.
I've been eating up quite a bit of my vacation time this last week, so I took a couple pictures at work today to use as photographic evidence that I do work on occassion, lol.
Today's dress of the day was another find at Goodwill on Tuesday. It's made out of T-shirt material and increadibly comfy. For work I paired it with this jacket that I got from Ricki's.
My purse of the day I thrifted at Value Village. I'm not a Sagittarius, (I'm a Cancer) but it was so cute I couldn't pass it up.
Rest of the outfit is:
Stockings: Forever 21
Necklace: Bittersweet
Shoes: Le Chateau
Bracelet: Dollar store
Ring: Urban Planet
Furry Gray Cat: Tinkerbell, the manly cat
Awesome Umbrella: Goodwill

  5. You look great! As sad & tough divorce is, I think its sadder & harder not being happy in your situation. Life is short and you should be happy and make the best. Glad you parted on some what mutual terms. I strongly believe everything happens for a reason, so stay strong. Everything will work out for you.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about your divorce. I have to say though, I truly admire your strength going through this. Like Cid said, I think it would be worse to be in an unhappy marriage. Thing will work themselves out, you just need to stay positive.

    On a lighter note, you look amazing. I can't get over how cute you are. You have amazing features and an awesome sense of style. And, you are probably one of the few people who has more purses than I do. Very impressive!

  7. BEAUTIFUL!! I love everything about that dress! The color and fit are incredible on you! And the jacket is adorable!! I have been considering white tights, but wasn't sure if it would look too young... you totally pull it off and now I think I'm gonna try it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. So sorry to hear you are going through a tough time, but it won't last forever. I did the same as you and am now extremely happily re-married and it was the best move I ever made (even though everyone thought we were mad!).
    You are looking well though, actually better than well you look fab in that dress, and your bag is amazing - as a Sagittarius I was immediately salivating!
