the good, the bad, and the ugly

These past few days have been so eventful in my life!
The bad - I'm STILL sick and now have the special treat of having lost my voice, so I sound like a sexy smoker at best.
The ugly - It SNOWED today and yesterday. What the heck?! It's April!
The good - I had a job interview on Monday, and today I was notified that I got the summer internship at the Canadian magazine that I had most hoped for! I could not be more excited to start.
Yesterday I wore this:

After all of that, I stopped in at StyleSense - a new accessories store that sells last season designer stuff for less and happened to run across these Jeffrey Campbell shoes. I always kicked myself for not buying them last season, so seeing them now (and at a discounted price!) made me sure it was fate.
Hope you're all having a fabulous week. x E
