Candy Shop

So the other day I had this crazy idea that I should open a candy shop. Here in our small town we don’t even have one! How insane is that?! I love when we visit other cities and they have these colorful, kooky stores filled to the brim with all the candy ever invented. I was reminded by a good friend about dreams and passions. She’s a teacher, and I remember her saying about her life/job, “This is it? I’m a teacher now and there’s nothing else for me?” As we become adults our main focus is on this one dream job that we will have forever. Have you guys ever seen Monster-in-Law? I love how Jennifer Lopez’s character has all these crazy jobs. The mother-in-law basically shuns her for being a “temp”. I thought, how cool is that? Picking up new dreams and jobs all through your life, not just settling for one. I’m looking forward to the future, with this blog, maybe a candy shop, or being a stylist full time. Who knows, but I do know I’m going to keep on not settling.

Oh yeah, this dress? Totally candy shop material! I love the bright colors and fun crisscross back. Riffraff launched this new summer lookbook a couple weeks ago and as soon as I saw this dress in the sneak peek I knew I had to make it mine!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks being a “temp” would be awesome. There’s just so much I want to do! Why not do it all?
    And as always, you look great

    This dress is so perfect for summer with its bright colors and great open back! I definitely agree with moving on to new dreams instead of settling your whole life. You’d make a super cute candy shop owner!

    I could TOTALLY see you owning a candy shop! It would look so adorable. :) I feel the same way sometimes. Why settle on only one job/career? There’s so much I want to experience!

    That dress is gorgeous! I usually avoid backless things because I never know what to wear with them. This is awkward, but how do you wear a bra with that?
