Lookbook: A Bird in the Hand

4/06/2015

A bird in the hand. I'm a total follower of this motto, even to the point where it might come off as superstitious. I'd rather take advantage of an opportunity that's certain than try to hold off for something that might be worth more, but might also be riskier. But since I recently decided to quit my full-time marketing job to focus more on the Muse and styling opportunities, I've come to the realization that sometimes it's OK to wait out for the two birds in the bush. Have you ever had a similar experience in your life?

Also, I'm teaming up with Laura of Walking in Memphis in High Heels for the Trend Spin Linkup, which is prints! What do you think of this Cooper and Ella bird print blouse? I'm loving the print blouses on Shopbop right now -- are you? Be sure to linkup your look below -- animal print, stripes, polka dots, birds...whatever!
