new beginnings

This past week has been a very busy one- tying up loose ends at one job to leave and start another one! I'm going to miss my awesome and amazing co-workers but I'm excited for a change in my career! (Tomorrow is my first day!)  At work on Friday, we had cake at break and my co-workers gave me such pretty flowers and a card!



Later that evening, Ben & I had a double date planned with Brent & Chamila at Churchstreet. But to my shock, when we walked upstairs, I ran into a whole table of my friends who I've worked with- including Chamila! Turns out they had planned a surprise good-bye dinner for me! No one has ever planned any surprise event in my honour so I was pretty touched. We all had a great night...I think we were at the restaurant for almost 4 hours! And I was so pumped about the gift they gave me...it was a necklace I had been watching:


Necklace: "Queen for a Day" by Dogeared (from Je Suis Prest Boutique)

And another card...this one sings!


(Thank you so much guys)

Although I'm excited for the next step and a new job, I am going to miss seeing these people every day! But I always believe in staying in touch and keeping up with friendships. I'm not going that far away anyways :)

Here's the outfit I wore to dinner Friday night...the top is actually my first purchase from Envy! There were just so many great pieces there, I had to put a few on hold last weekend, and come back the next day to make the purchase!

The Look:
Brown ostrish print purse- Guess- Walsh Luggage (Spring '09)
Polka dot coat- Kensie Girl- Liquidation World (March '10)
Mint green top- Mustard Seed- Envy (a week ago)
Skinny jeans- Nissi Jeans- Pseudio (April '10)
Teal heels- Nine West- Winners (Dartmouth, 3 yrs ago)
Pearl bracelets- Le Chateau (Dec '09)
