That Girl Who Works at the Flower Shop...

HAT   I ORE... interview for a job at a flower shop.  I wanted to dress professionally, but not in boring, dark colors.  Basically, I wanted to look like a flower, like I belong among flowers (flowers are my favorite things in the world: I have vines and vases full of them all around my apartment). must've worked, because I GOT THE JOB
It's going to be a second job, and I'll only be working about 20 hours a week, but I've been battling with the "creative itch" (as I call it) that blogging--though a wonderful outlet--just doesn't seem to be enough to quell. 
My hope is that this job will involve enough exposure to people and time to fulfill my right brain.

I'm just so enamoured with the idea of being "that girl who works at the flower shop"...wearing pretty-but-practical clothes while flitting among vibrant flowers and sparkling baubles...*daydreaming* 
Before you warn me that it probably won't be like that, let me tell ya: I worked at a flower shop once before during my college days, and it pretty much was exactly like that!  :)  With a bit of heavy lifting thrown in there, too. haha

So.  The day I wore my bright pink cropped trousers (sorry if you're all sick of them appearing on this blog, 'cuz I never will be!) and printed blouse was dismal and drizzly...but I had to run a lot of errands besides my interview, so I put on my bright slacks and a smile.  :)  Hopefully my outfit--though not at all "cool," or "hip," or any similar adjectives--brightened other people's days as much as it did mine.
These femenine colors bookended by the dark brown of my hair and shoes really worked for me.  And I always love sporting a vintage bag. 
As it got a little chillier in the evening, I threw on my floral print wool scarf instead of the light off-white one along with my white faux leather jacket.
