Daily MelWear: To Take A Test

Our office has been cold lately. FREEZING. Like somewhere around 65 degrees for some reason. I decided I needed long sleeves and this dress seemed to work. I added the cardigan to cover up the plunging neckline instead of layering something underneath.

Enter: The Belt. This belt saved the outfit. In all honesty, the outfit was kind of "meh" when I first put it on but the belt made it worthy of being seen outside the house. It would have been bad if I couldn't leave the house today. :)

I got to see my girl this morning!!! We met at my office a little while before I had to take that test and I was able to snuggle and hang out with her for a few minutes. I can't wait until tonight when I can go home to her!

Speaking of the test...I did well on everything except for Letter Block, which is formatting a formal letter in regards to where each piece goes, such as the salutation, "re" line, CC, enclosure, etc. I was only given two letters and I was apparently incorrect on both of them. Oops. That's the only portion I'll have to take again because I exceeded the minimum scores on everything else, but if I don't pass it the second time around I can't re-take it for another YEAR.

This makes me nervous.

So does anyone have some templates they want to send me? I'm googling sample letters but still. NERVOUS.

The other job that I was contacted about by the director still hasn't been approved by HR so it's not posted yet for me to submit my resume "officially". I've been chatting with one of the girls there and it sounds like something I would really enjoy - plus, Fridays off like I have now!

Please pray with me for this one!

Okay I think I'm done.  Today is still a little bit crazy, we finished the 180 patient meter study yesterday so now I have to play catch-up on all of my other work that's been pushed to the back burner. Hopefully I'll be back to normal tomorrow so that I can read a blog or two! I miss you guys!

Today's outfit:
Dress: Ross?
Cardigan: Gift from ML
White Belt: Wal-Mart
Necklace: Gift from a co-worker
Gray Heels: Payless


  1. Hi hunnie...LOVE the mixing in your outfit.....I think this may be a fav of mine for you:)
    I think you will do just fine on the know what you did wrong, so just research, research!!!

    Go you:)

  2. I totally thought this was a skirt with a cardi over it, so you fooled me! Anyway, I LOVE the pattern on the dress! It's so cute, and the colors are awesome! I hear you on being cold - my department is temporarily relocated in a "temporary classroom" (aka a trailer) and it is FREEZING in here - not to mention there are four of us sitting at one table, which is a little little personal space!

  3. I like what you did with your outfit.

    Good luck and Prayer on the re-take.

    I know you are so excited about seeing you daughter tonight. I hope you two have a great time together.

  4. I know the cold feeling at work! I often will post an outfit that I wore at work (which I did), but not post pictures of the multiple sweaters I add throughout the day as I succumb to the cold! I have a hard time getting enough nutritional calories in my diet, so my body has a hard time at keeping itself warm! A hot cup of tea always helps, though!

    You look fabulous in your attempts to keep warm!

  5. Love the dress and the grey pumps. Very cute. ♥ Wishing you the best.

  6. Oh, here's lots of love and prayers dear!

    I'm pretty amazed on how may different ways you can style that cardi, kudos and good luck!

  7. Love those shoes!! Good luck on your retake!!

  8. I'm sure you'll rock the letter block this next time. Good luck!

    I like the belt here - it ties everything together.

  9. I love this! The perfect fall dress! And the belt over the dress and cardi accentuates your little waist! Too cute.

    Good luck on your test, I'm sure you'll do great :)

  10. Good luck on your retake! And have fun with your daughter!! :) Love the patterned dress.

  11. I'm sure you'll do well on your test. Love the layering you've got going on. I didn't realize it was a dress until you mentioned it.

  12. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you hear more about the job with Friday's off! I know how much that extra day means to you and your daughter!! And good luck on the re-take. I know you'll do great!

  13. Love the layering over the dress! I'm so glad that opportunities are opening for you!

  14. Wishing you LOTS of luck on this new job opportunity! I hope that you are doing well. Thinking of you.

  15. I love that dress! Great colors and print! Super cute! And I just have to say I love the shoes! (I remember seeing them in the store and almost buying them myself... I'm not sure why I didn't to be honest!)
