Surprise! Things look a little different around here!
Lately, I had been feeling like I was in a rut....with my style, with my creativity, pretty much with everything that didn't involve conking out on the couch with Big Bang Theory reruns in the background. I was feeling blah about what I was throwing on to wear to work. I mean, when it reaches the time of year when things are just cold and miserable, does anyone really feel like dressing cute? I sure don't.
But I was sick of it! Sick of it, I tell ya! So I took it upon myself to revamp the blog AND my style funk! Last week, I straightened my hair, put on a skirt, and had myself an awkward self photo shoot in the backyard. Oh, how I have missed those! This black H&M button up and gray skirt were both thrifted at some point or another, and the necklace was a cheapie at Body Central. I love how a long bangle instantly spruces up a boring top!
Ian and I also (finally) backed up our computers this weekend, and I took it upon myself to clear out all my photos on my computer which dated back to 2007. Is it any wonder I never felt like uploading photos? It always took a million years. Could have had something to do with the 15,000+ photos I was storing on my hard drive (I'm not even kidding). It seems like such a dumb little task, but doing that little thing made me feel productive and like I could finally take on some new projects.
Soon, daylight savings time will be here and we will be able to start sprucing up the backyard to get ready for summer get-togethers and evening lounging.
But for now, you'll have to deal with the dried-up-herb-garden-and-random-foam-balls-kicked-over-the -fence-by-our-neighbor's-kids backdrop. Can't expect too much out of one weekend.
**Just a note about the new design--I designed the header and sidebar, but was lucky to find the adorable social media icons from Carrie Loves. They were so easy to install and she has every color you could ever want!
