Don't Know Why You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

Hello again after a long absence.  I had no idea when I did that last post that I needed a two week break, but evidently I did.  I'd like to tell you that I took the time to focus on revamping and restyling this blog, but I didn't.  The truth is, I just took some time off. 

The best part about this blog has been exactly what I intended for it to be:  to serve as a visual diary for myself and to motivate myself to look nice everyday.

But every once in a while, I find that it becomes a chore.  And it seems like for a minute there, it was becoming a bit of a chore more often. 

So I took a break.  And I'm starting to miss blogging.  And I don't care about how many followers I have, or whether I have any sponsors, or how many comments I get a day (though every comment does still excite me, no matter how much I tell myself it doesn't matter!) I miss it, and I have some new clothes, and I find that I'm not near as motivated to read others blogs for some reason when I can't show off my own.  So here I am again!

Thank you for those who sent me nice comments and checked on me and remained my follower despite my absence.  I admire your dedication, which is obviously a little stronger than mine these days!

And, without further ado and other uncreative transitional phrases, today's outfit:

It is important to note that this shirt cost a whopping $6 at the Gap this weekend.  Seriously.  I also took the opportunity to wear my new edgy bracelet with a very feminine and professional outfit...and think it adds just the right amout of grr.

P.S.  If you and your coworker decide to start running during your lunch breaks, perhaps you should pick a different time of year than June to start.  It is REALLY hard to stay motivated when its 106 outside.  You don't get valuable advice like that very often, I'm sure, so I'm just trying to be a good friend here...because I'm currently the smelly girl in the office, and the least I can be is a good friend.

  1. Aw yay! Welcome back!

    Sometimes it's necessary to take time off. I'm glad you're back and feeling refueled to blog again.

    You look great in this outfit, I love that skirt on you! What a find!

  2. I am happy to have you back! Sometimes we need a good break and time to refocus (or not focus at all!). And how come I always miss these terrific Gap sales???

  3. so good to see you back! I've missed reading your posts! :)

    I was starting to worry!

  4. What a great deal on that shirt. I have never had any luck like that at the Gap!

    I really like your skirt too. New York & Co is one of my favorite stores to find great clothes.


I love to hear from you!
