Hi friends! Oh my gosh - I can't believe I have been MIA from the blog for so long!! I don't have a great excuse other than work and life got a bit busy and unfortunately I have to sometimes put the blog on the back burner for a little while. I am trying not to beat myself up about it too much (something I am working on), but I realize now that you can't be all things to all people - at least not all at once. And you have to be able to stop and recharge your own batteries (and turns out you don't have to feel bad about taking a much needed break)! The good news is - I am so excited to be back and have been cooking up some (hopefully) great new ideas for 2016!
Winter storm "Jonas" didn't hit us too hard, so I was able to get out and snap a few photos over the weekend. Word of advice: if you plan on starting a fashion blog - do it in the spring! The winter makes it so difficult to get out and take photos. Not to mention I feel super pale and would rather lay under some blankets than put pants on and go outside. lol. Ok - so it's not quite that bad, but you get it. I've been on the hunt lately for distressed black skinny jeans. When I get something in my head that I want, I search ferociously until I find exactly what I am looking for. Sometimes this presents a problem because what I want is only in my head and doesn't actually exist in any store. Thankfully, when it comes to black denim, there are plenty of options out there (I linked a few of my favorites below). Another item I had been on the hunt for was a camel coat. I saw this one on the ASOS website and of course it was sold out in my size. I quite literally stalked the site a few times a day until my size popped up and I grabbed it! I am so glad I did! If you are a short thing like me, you will love this coat! It's the perfect length, sleeves aren't too long, and the shoulders are just right! This coat also comes with a detachable fur collar which turns an everyday coat into something so fun and glamorous! Last but not least, I am wearing this adorable "heart breakers" t-shirt also from ASOS. I don't know how many hearts I break these days, but it's a fun playful option if you are opting for a casual Valentine's Day look.
Stay warm friends and stop back this week for some new features on the blog - including a "Splurge vs. Steal" denim edition and a new series "Friday Favorites." And next week I will talking weddings with "10 Wedding Rules to Break Right Now." XOXO
