Good morning loves!! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that yesterday I officially went back to work after having 9 months of filming off!! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been working these entire 9 months focusing on the blog, collaborations, and partnerships, but it’s been from the comfort of my own home. I’ve been able to set my own hours, meet with the girls on a regular basis all while having little Leo and Nacho close by!!
I honestly didn’t think that I would even be going back to work, we took a hiatus from the show last year and to me I interpreted it that we weren’t coming back! Lol! I was like “Ok, the show is done!” … I always knew there was a chance of it coming back but I didn’t hear from the network for so long that I kind of started banking on my cushy schedule (with less money) for life! LOL! It came as a bit of a shock to hear that we would be firing back up again, and I will admit there were some good feelings and some bad. I’m definitely grateful for these opportunities and to be able to pick this back up again, this used to be my DREAM job (and still is!), but I just got so used to my schedule with Leo over these last 9 months and my new (more important!) dream job is being HIS MOM! I’m going to miss my slow mornings with him … and being able to see him throughout the day but this is still exciting and we are going to be doing most of the filming in Kelowna this time around and I won’t have to commute as much going forward which is a huge plus … but there’s no denying I’ve had it good these last 9 months! LOL!
In addition to the change in schedule, I realized very quickly when getting dressed yesterday was that I need to order up some new dresses to wear on set because I haven’t had to buy many “dressy” clothes lately so I had a bit of a mild panic attack when I was searching for something to wear on my first day back, but luckily I ordered this adorable lace dress from Modcloth a couple of weeks ago and it’s perfect for a day on set!!
I love the detail on the sleeves, the lace, and the scalloped edges on the bottom because it gives the dress a super feminine look. This dress was also perfect to bust out because it was a bit chilly outside yesterday but the sun was out so it kept me warm and comfortable but also gave off a bright, energetic, spring vibe with its coral colour!! It’s a bit more dressy and business-y which is exactly what I need more of but still fun and youthful which would make it a great option for any upcoming weddings as well!!
So while I was able to pull off the perfect look for filming today (at least one of us looked good today, Todd … ? ) … this is just day 1 … which means I need to get myself in gear and start filling my online shopping cart with some more options … how’s that for an excuse?? Twist my rubber arm, why don’t ya?! LOL! I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again but Modcloth is a great place to find dresses if you’re looking for something to wear to work, or out to a special event, they have tons of great options and their prices are super reasonable!! Below are a few I currently have my eyes on …
What are your thoughts on this lace red dress?? Could you see yourself wearing it??
