Labor Day Style

This post is sort of late (I’m human and the weekend wore me out LOL). Well at least you know I enjoyed myself. The weather here in the PNW (Pacific Northwest)  was a little gloomy but 2 days out of the 4-day weekend were absolutely gorgeous! Of course I had 2 different outfits for Monday. When plans change, so does the outfits honey (wink).

Happy 4th USA!

I love the 4th of July! It’s my favorite holiday (yes, I love it more than my own birthday). I don’t know why. Maybe because it’s in the peak of summer, it’s hot, there are cookouts, festivities and tons of fun stuff to do on the 4th. And FIREWORKS! (so romantical lol). This was my first year that I wasn’t on the Eastcoast for the 4th. Seattle had a lot of fun things to do for the 4th all throughout the city. I spent it at South Lake Union. Went to happy hour, hung around downtown until the Fireworks show. South Lake Union was packed with people, music and good vibes. I really enjoyed myself.

TheStylishDork’s 1st Street Style Feature!

Hey everyone! I am so excited to share with you guys my first street style feature! I was coming from brunch (on my way to the new ZARA store in downtown Seattle) and a nice woman stopped me and asked if I was interested in being featured. The blog is for an energy drink company who wanted to showcase women in what they call “Passion meets Fashion.” She asked me questions about myself, my blog and my style inspiration. Check out my feature and other photos from the day below!

Outings and Outfits: Seattle Edition

Of course lately I have A LOT of time on my hands. Either with job searching, networking and enjoying my new surroundings. I LOVE going to Seattle and exploring and just being in the city. I don’t have the luxury of being only 15mins from a major city like I did back in MD (Downtown DC was only 15mins away), but I don’t mind the drive to Seattle. I always make it an all day outing when I go to the city. Since I am new there are tons to do and see. I still have A LOT of things and places to go to and check off my list.

I’m a COWBOYS Fan but Congrats to the Seahawks

Still a little hurt it wasn’t my COWBOYS who made it to the SuperBowl, but it was a great win for the Seattle Seahawks. Their first SuperBowl win ever! Looks like I moved here at the right time. The city was crazy with hardcore fans. I went down to the city to check out the parade and I even got a glimpse of the trophy. It was a nice and orderly celebration for the team and the 12th man, the FANS.

“My Story, My Adventure, My Journey”

20140125-053834.jpg

(I traveled from Washington DC to Washington State…by train. One of the Best Experiences of my Life)

Some are already aware, but for those who are not, I have recently relocated to beautiful Washington State! I have been wanting to move away for quite some time now. Certain situations have happened in my life in the past couple of months that pushed me to make such a MAJOR change. This was actually one of the biggest decisions I have ever made in my LIFE. I was laid off not too long ago and I sat down with myself and GOD and prayed about what to do next. It’s really amazing how everything worked out to where all things lead to me leaving home. Most people would be down in the dumps but I look at me being laid off as a blessing and an opportunity.Yes, it was a little devastating but, it was not a surprise (you guys know how government contracts work. Time for bids and only one can win). A lot of people asked me “Well, why Washington?” Well, I applied all over the world and the job market is tough. I have never been out of work until now so I can understand what so many Americans are going through. Searching and applying every single day. It’s TOUGH! So, I chose Washington State because I have family here and it’s not the norm I am use to. I’m getting older. The “fast life”, partying etc got old to me a long time ago. Not that I still don’t enjoy a good time but,  I’m trying to establish a career and find where I want to settle. I’m at a different place in my life mentally and needed something a little more chill. People seem to choose where they want to live according to what they are accustomed to. That’s all find and dandy, but I wanted something……DIFFERENT. I needed a FRESH START. Just to be clear, this wasn’t a fresh start to “find myself” (I knew who I was before I left home), but a fresh start to gain new experiences, try new things, meet new people. A chance to LIVE. Being laid off is one of the best things that has happened to me in my life. GOD let it happen to give me that extra PUSH. Inside, I wasn’t content with where I was, so HE made it possible for me to change it. (Praise HIM!)
