A Day In The Life!

Being a creative entrepreneur, one of the highlights of my “job” is that no two days are exactly the same = my schedule is constantly evolving – depending on whatever artistic gig I am working on and what other “life” demands I’m trying to juggle; a double-edge sword one could say that keeps me smiling and on my toes at the VERY same time. It has its ups. It has its downs. And in-between, multiple costume changes ;) SO today, I thought it would be fun to share with you a glimpse into one of those random days of mine and how I dress to meet every occasion on my calendar . . . starting with one of the biggest responsibilities in my life: dog mom!

Yes, as many of you already know, we have a pack of dogs both ranging in size and breed, but it wasn’t until we acquired our fourth one, Cash, that I started to have to make a concentrated effort to include daily doggie exercise into my schedule [that dang puppy energy] thus most of my days start with brisk walk of some sorts where I usually opt for something leisurely but cute to wear. The reason? Well, comfort is definitely at the forefront but I also need to look somewhat presentable these mornings because of the gated community we live in. Why? Well, as a business owner, I am lucky to say that most of my [recent] upholstery clientele has been from the neighborhood so I live in a state of never knowing when I am going to be running into a possibly new client. My current “workout” fave for my “dog mom” routine is this Hoodie Playsuit by Cabi from their New Arrivals Collection, Penny Lane Lovely. This is the second playsuit I have of theirs and I just love how this one has longer sleeves and a hoodie; making it so much more versatile as we move into these colder San Diego months. It’s even perfect to throw a coat right over top!

Shortly after Cash’s morning workout, this is where my day really takes off and honestly the sky is about the only limit on what my day may bring! I mean that calendar of mine also tends to keep me on track but you never know :) on this particular day though, it’s all about client meetings. Back-to-back ones in fact! I try my best to schedule all my meetings on one day a week [or every two weeks if I can manage it] so I can spend a brunt of my time creating verses business mambo-jambo. Now when I have a “meeting day” like today, this is where I usually dress to impress and style myself in an outfit that’s more business office appropriate than my usual #stylecrazed self, which some people might think as silly but it’s how I choose to present my business in my client’s homes. I have found that people tend to take me more seriously as a young business owner when I not only act professional but dress the part too. Plus, since I love to play dress-up, I still manage to keep it fun ;) and today I’m doing just that with this Catherine Blouse, also from Cabi‘s Penny Lane Lovely Collection. With such gorgeous qualities, like it’s sheer fabric and rich pattern, it was easy to pair this blouse with other chic items in my closest to create this polished look – just in time to head out the door for my first meeting!

And then after my meetings have wrapped and I find myself not in my studio, not in my home, BUT out’n’about in beautiful San Diego, I try my very best to multi-task my time [and my gas mileage] and make a date with one of my girlfriends! See, since my husband and I live out in the northeast part of San Diego county, sometimes I don’t see my gal-pals as much as I’d like, so taking advantage of my location after a long day of driving around for meetings is the name of the game! And what is hard work worth without a little play, anyway?! ;) This is where my wardrobe can really just be whatever I want it to be, AND with such versatile items like Cabi‘s, it’s effortless for me to have an extra outfit in the car to change into for a ladies night! I usually try to reflect the activity with the ensemble. SO, since we are doing happy hour drinks followed by a listening to a band in a dive bar, well, then it’s time for a jacket that looks sort of like it’s from The Beatles Sargent Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Then pair it with a black cami underneath and some skinny black jeans with t-strap stilettos, and I’ve got myself ready to go out!

I really am so thankful to have a life where my days can beautifully vary with each passing hour of the ole tick-tock. It might seem like the randomness could cause somewhat of wardrobe nightmare, but luckily with my own particular breed of style and the multi-dimensional clothing options I have acquired from Cabi over the past year, I armed with an arsenal of sure-fire winners that easily mix-and-match with each other, creating endless options of dress. I honestly feel I can be ready with any occasion that’s on my calendar with Cabi and I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into one of my days! I urge you to check out Cabi for yourself and see all that they have to offer. Their New Arrivals Collection, Penny Lane Lovely launches today and I’m sure it will sell out fast, so if you love any of the items I am wearing above, you better get on it girl ;) move fast!
