It's round 2 of "Things I Wish I Had Known When I Was 24" also known as "How I Learned to Thrive in 365". Okay, scratch those long titles. 

But really, today is my annual day of birth celebration, here are three more things I've learned the past 365.
  1. You can say no. Say no to diets, so no to extra work you won't get paid for. Say no to people treating you poorly.
  2. Friends come in all shapes, sizes, and ages. Some of my best friends are not even from the same generation! It offers insight into things I would never be able to know at my age.
  3. If you want your business to be taken seriously, take it seriously yourself. The more I worked to hit deadlines, preform well, and always mean my word, the better my business was.
  4. Always under promise and over deliver. It sells your work harder and better when people receive the unexpected.
  5. Say thanks to those that help you. Daily. Weekly. Monthly. The best way is by sending love notes. ♡
  6. Read the directions. Read the contracts. Read the emails. All should be read thoroughly before being thrown away. 
Today I am wearing a gorgeous winter rose dress from Lettie Boutique! It is actually a short sleeve dress, but to accommodate the cold weather that finally hit us, I layered with a chunky knit sweater (I bought this secondhand), heeled ankle booties (that you have seen before last winter so many times; can't get enough of booties!), belted the dress to show of that waistline, and then topped it all off with one of my favorite wide brim hats!

This dress is a part of the Styled by 5 series that I am a part of with four other bloggers!  This is a series where every month, 5 different bloggers (including myself) of all shapes and sizes from all over the US style the same item of clothing! 

During Black Friday, Lettie Boutique will have 20% off the entire store with the code BLACK20. All order will have free shipping AND the first 50 orders will get a free gift! There are door-busters, stocking stuffers, and flash sales. The sale starts on Friday at 6 AM and end on Monday!

  1. Wow, that looks like a great dress, very wearable. I loved seeing different women of different shapes wearing it too, that was really helpful.

    1. Thank you! I agree, seeing it on different body types makes a huge difference.

  2. You styled this dress to perfection! Love the dark hat, the cardi and the booties with the florals. - Amy
