I am so sorry I have been away for so long. The job search has been occupying a lot of my time, but hopefully I will have some good news coming soon, so keep your fingers crossed!
But no worries... my time away was not in vain! I was presented with an interesting challenge this week when I was shopping for a vegan interview outfit. I discovered that although my casual wardrobe has easily transitioned away from animal products, I am still drawn to wool and silk when I want to dress up. I was a bit pressed for time in finding an outfit, so using the internet was unfortunately not an option. So I hit the mall... and was remarkably successful, although I noticed the shopping process takes longer than it used to! I got an adorable, professional outfit from J. Crew, which is but no means completely vegan, but does offer up some adorable options. So here is my loot:

The neckline on this top is perfect. It shows skin without being revealing, and has a loose, but not shapeless fit. Best of all, it is soft and silky without being silk!

Alright, I am obsessed with these pants. They are slouchy and comfy, but look so chic when paired with heels. They have that sort of effortless European look I am always striving for. And they are on sale! Plus, my dream job is a Museum Curator, so I thought the name was a sign of good sign... I know... NERD ALERT!
Since I was a shoehorse in my pre-vegan days, I decided to wear a pair of shoes I had (which were unfortunately leather) because I honestly have no need for a new pair of shoes, so I thought it would be best to use what I had. BUT, if I did need shoes, I would get these ones:

Aren't they adorable? When I need shoes, these ones are at the top of my list :)
I promise I will not disappear again! I have a lot of great things planned, so stayed tuned loves!
