the slow math of debt and dreams


Hi guys!

After the emotional up and down with my private issues during the last weeks I'm feeling so much better this week. I'm motivated again and it's such a good feeling.
We finally have summer weather here, I'm going to attend a martial arts class to find a new hobby, I'll meet my girls from the office for dinner tomorrow, I'm taking part in a market research group to earn some extra money for future travels, I'll go to Primark with Patrick and shop til I drop at the weekend, we'll go to a friend's birthday party....
And I have a new job! Well, another job I should say. The company where I work as a student help has reduced my weekly amount of working hours for summer and this reduces my monthly income. But I don't want to cut back on my monthly spendings because I love to treat myself by eating out or buying clothes once in a while, so I applied for several other jobs.
Fortunately I hit the jackpot by finding a second temp job in the same business sector like my first job, which is event management. Very nice co-workers, laid-back atmosphere, pretty office with roof garden - I love it there.

As I have to deal with customers in person in the new job, I need to pay attention to what I wear to the office a bit more than in the other job. Due to the young office team they still they have a very laid-back attitude towards clothing there, no dresscode, but I think I will have to keep an eye on my outfits not being too crazy and/or too much tramp style if you know what I mean.
Sometimes it unintendedly happens that I throw on washed out skinny jeans, oversized t-shirt, oversized lumberjack shirt or cardi, boots and a knit hat and that's when I get close to looking like a defiant 90s grunge teen.
Hey, I love grunge style so don't get me wrong here. But for the office I try to keep it neat. ;)
Yesterday for example I wore this lovely breezy super-light summer dress which I bought on my Budapest trip in February this year. I jazzed it up a bit with the cheetah cardigan, wildcat necklace and the matchy-matchy belt, flats and bag.

We had 30° Celsius here but always with a breeze, so it almost felt a bit like being near the sea, only the salty scent in the air was missing.
How's the weather over at your place? Are you enjoying summer? Okay, I know my Aussie readers don't, but what about the others?

Happy Wednesday! :)
