A COMFY-CHIC OUTFIT FOR GIRL’S NIGHT OUT AND LIFE UPDATE…

chic sunglasses Hello from Germany!

Summer is for travelling and I plan on doing a few of those even though my bank account is screaming for help right now. Ha!! A bit of life update, -last two weeks I spontaneously resigned from my job due to some changes that my soul wasn’t happy with. Working in the education sector (especially in the special educational needs sector) can be very tricky and one has to be very careful when it comes to safeguarding. Following the unfortunate incident I went through last year, I’ve really advised myself not to put myself in a situation where I’m not comfortable at. Due to confidentiality I can’t write here what happened word to word, but what I know is that, I’ve worked hard to get to where I am now. -And I don’t want to be put in a situation where a mistake is bound to happen for me to lose my teaching license. Some of these schools do things that benefits them without thinking about how a staff feels about it and that is basically what happened in my situation. So yeahhhh…pray/wish me luck while I search for a new suitable job that will make my bank account start smiling again.

Once again hello from Frankfurt! I’m here for a week to relax and forget about the jobless stress I’m in right now. This is my second time in Frankfurt and I fall in love every time. It is a beautiful city with so much life. Have you visited before?

Today’s #ootd is another comfy-chic summer look that I styled for a girl’s night out. I am all about tee shirts right now. They are so comfortable and casual, but can definitely be jazzed up to look chic too. When creating a comfy-chic outfit, my focus is always on the accessories. The clothes can be slouchy/oversized, but adding statement elements like what I’ve done here with the added belt, sunglasses, bag and of course the shoes adds the chic to the comfy. Ha!!

Much Love!

    Quitting your job is a very bold step and I am very proud of you. No one should settle for anything that doesn’t make them feel good about themselves. I wish you all the best, May. And I hope you find something new to do soon. Something you love that will make you more money too.
    By the way, those are some gorgeous pair of shoes. You look absolutely beautiful.

    I really agree with you that we should not put ourselves in a situation that we’re not comfortable with. Not because we don’t want challenge, but sometimes it will hurt ourselves evenmore.
    Love your outfit anyway, sexy yet still so cool <3

I totally understand about SAFEGUARDING!!! Arhhhhh. When It starts getting crazy, with the paperwork and extra eyes, then it’s time to gooooo. I love your shoes, skirt, and glasses. I agree about turning a casual outfit into something more, with the right accessories. Hang tight Missy May : ) xo

  19. June 22, 2018 / 4:07 pm

    Good for you for taking a step in the right direction for you, even if the unknown is probably a bit unnerving. I don’t know what the school system is like over there, but as a mama, I’ve just been in awe sometimes at how the administration has refused to empower our teachers sometimes to handle situations with behavior impacting the other kids…or the teachers! My kiddos come home telling me stories of kids hitting teachers, and I ask what happened to the kids, and they say the policy is just to send them to another teacher’s classroom. Wha??!!! I can only imagine the strength, poise, and unrealistic perfection expected to be an educator in today’s society.
    But on the plus side of this post, you are looking fierce! Those sunglasses and heels are gorgeous. πŸ™‚

      Education is so ridiculous now Amy. You can’t even discipline children without it being labelled as something else. Teachers are not respected most of the time and nothing is done about it. Smh!! If I should write the things I’ve experienced here, I wouldn’t finish at all. Ha!

  22. June 22, 2018 / 9:53 pm

    It is definitely true that some schools don’t stand by their teachers and that’s really unfortunate because teachers can’t do their job properly if they are not protected by the institutions they work in. I could tell you about some pretty ridiculous teacher job interviews I have had in the past, but it is still traumatic to think about them lol. The principals would ask me all kinds of inappropriate questions, everything apart from what they were supposed to ask….but I guess that’s life. I’m sure you’ll find something better, it is important to stand by what you believe in.

    You look fantastic in this outfit…love the red heels. Black and red is always such a stunning combo. Enjoy your stay in Germany!

    I feel that if you felt in your soul that the job wasn’t right for you, moving on was the wisest thing to do.

    God has plans for you so pray into that, and he’s with you whenever you are feeling lost and knows the pathways for you which will set you straight. Praying the right job role comes your way my lovely.

    Stay positive, I know it’s hard.

    Your outfit is gorgeous and love the little red bag, a great size too!

    I’m so proud of you for following your heart and making the right decision for you beautiful babe! I just know the right opportunity is out there waiting for you, happiness is the very least you deserve and I have every faith it’ll all work out gorgeous. I admire you so much for doing what is right for your soul, I’ve left many an unhappy job in my time and the relief I’ve felt afterwards was overwhelming beyond belief. You are an absolute star and I know you’ll continue to dazzle and shine in whatever path you chose next <3

    Looking absolutely stunning and oh so stylish as always, the pops of red on you are pure paradise *all the heart eyes*. I love how you've styled the tee, such a cool, on-point vibe for your girl's night out πŸ˜€ I hope you enjoy Frankfurt to the fullest, it definitely sounds like you deserve a well needed break and switch off. Have the best time ever beaut! <3

    Mavis – I am so proud of you! You found yourself in a detrimental situation and promptly removed yourself from it. Staying would have been unhealthy and as you said could have resulted in you losing your teaching license. You did the right thing and now you are de-stressing in Frankfurt. Hope your time away gets you the relaxation you deserve and puts you in a new state of mind to go find that next opportunity. You are smart and I am certain you will find gainful employment again. Love your fashion in this post. Red is your color! I especially love your heels!

    I adore the pops of color in this outfit! And we’re dying to travel more too haha. But that darn bank account! Fingers crossed for you to find somewhere that your hard work and talent is appreciated. I know that it can be really tricky for us working in education these days, so I’m thinking about you and pulling for you!
