Jumping on here this morning with a quick post! Saturday night I did something new, something crazy, something exciting! I bartended for my first time EVER and I didn’t fail miserably! I was super nervous going into the night, I mean, I’m really good at drinking cocktails, but making them? That’s a whole other story! Anyway, I made drinks left and right for 5 hours straight and not to brag, but I think I was kind of a natural! The bartender that I was working with didn’t even believe it was my first time! Yay me!
On a little more serious of a note, in hindsight I’m so so glad that I tried something new and stepped WAY out of my comfort zone, but prior to Saturday night I was getting so anxious and nervous and stressed about failing. How lame!? I need to really stop letting the fear of failing at something get in the way of potentially succeeding. So maybe that’ll be my summer resolution, or summer mantra, or whatever you want to call it. Failure IS an option, but success is always a possibility too. Yep. So if you need me, I’ll be over here trying to make myself try something new.
What is something you’ve done that’s pushed you WAY out of your comfort zone?! And what is one thing that’s on your list? Okay, now onto some fashion stuff-y stuff.
I didn’t love the outfit I had to wear bartending the other night, just black pants and a white button down shirt, but I love this outfit that I threw together the other day. I think a big trend this spring is taking t-shirt dresses and finding new ways to wear them! You can wear it as a shirt if you tie it up, as a skirt if you throw a top over it! Here I was inspired by this tie-front t-shirt dress and a button-back top. It seemed like a natural partnership! Let me know what you think! Outfit details below! And thank you to my friend @stylishwestchester for taking these photos!
