Happy Thursday! It's really a happy one for me because I found out yesterday that I passed my physical therapy board exam!!!! I was SO nervous about it but was absolutely thrilled when I saw the words "PASSED" on the screen! Whew! :) Today's look features an amazing lace cardigan from Sheinside. This cardigan is great because I can easily throw it on over a dress to create a  boho & feminine look (which I love). I know I will be wearing it well into fall! Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think!

I'm finally back! After 1.5 months of studying and an intense past week, I took my physical therapy board licensing exam yesterday! It was very very very challenging, but I am happy to have it done. I don't know the results for a few days so prayers are welcome. Again, I am so sorry for the lack of outfit posts (I have missed blogging so much)! But I have some really exciting things lined up so stay tuned! Today's look is a simple all black look (my go-to) with an "edgy" (I try) french braid to side swept curls. (Side note: For my hair I was inspired by THIS look.) Thank you so much for stopping by and for you well wishes on my exam! I really appreciate it! As always, be sure to let me know what you think!
