Lovely Layers & Life Update


Hey friends!

First, let me talk about this outfit and dusters that I am obsessed with. If the clothing doesn’t interest you, scroll down to read about whats going on in our life right now! 🙂

As the cooler weather approaches, I am constantly looking for new layers to add to my outfits.  Since the weather isn’t freezing cold yet, I can get away with these thin duster coats. I paired this one with a light sweater, but even as we were shooting, it was getting a little too warm! I might have to save this outfit for when it gets a little cooler! In my last post, I was wearing this skirt, and I just cant get enough of it! I love the asymmetrical hem and tie for added interest!Lovely Layers & Life Update, Duster Lovely Layers & Life update dsc_3804 dsc_3813 dsc_3795 dsc_3784 dsc_3807 dsc_3742

Update On Us:

As most of you know, Jon and I are here in the US on visas. Jon’s work sponsored his visa (an L1), and with that, I have a spousal visa (L2) which allows me to work. I have been working for the past 5 months at a job I really like. In order for me to work, I also have to have an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) which I was able to apply for after getting a Social Security Number.

Unfortunately, my EAD expires on November 4th and if I don’t have a new one by then, it is illegal for me to work. I submitted all my paperwork last month, but it takes a couple months for them to process it. We didn’t think it was going to take this long since it’s just a renewal, but apparently the process is the same as if I was applying for the first time.

I am still allowed to be in the country because my visa is good for another year and a bit (we recently had to take a trip to the Mexican border to get THAT sorted out. See the post HERE). But as I wait on my work permit, I have to take a leave from work. I am going to make the most of my time off and next week I am going to fly back to Canada to see my family and friends! I am really excited to go back because I miss everyone, but I am not ready for the cold! Wish me luck! And stay tuned for updates on the work permit!!

    Hello Jaclyn! I love your style and have been following you for a long while now! I hope everything gets sorted out with your visa. I know how sensitive those things can be and the uncertainty can be scary. I’ve known several people with immigration issues being of Mexican culture! Hope to meet up in Dallas sometime! Love ya and hang in there!

      Hey Vanessa! Thanks so much for the encouragement! It’s always such a hassle having to deal with these issues! We definitely should get together sometime!

      And a few days ago I referred your name to someone from the Tall Society about a brunch coming up next year! I saw in your bio that you are a tall girl, so I thought you might be interested! 🙂

      Hope you have a great day!
