I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since my last post! Where have I been? Well, around April of this year, after celebrating my one year blog-aversary  I fell completely out of love with my wardrobe. As much as I enjoyed blogging, I started feeling like I never had anything to wear. Or at least nothing that I felt compelled to shared with you guys.

Shortly after that, I began classes for my second master’s degree. Since then, my time has not been my own. Thus, no time for blogging. Continue reading

Lavender Skies


Now that spring is officially here and temperatures are beginning to climb, opportunities to wear my winter wardrobe are quickly diminishing. Before it gets too warm, I decided to take my corduroys out for a spin. I love these pants! Their lavender color is ideal for early spring.

The Struggle

white dress, green jacketA few years ago I saw a movie called Office Space. In this satirical comedy about the work-life of a typical mid-’90’s American software company, a few characters mention something called “a case of the Mondays.” I’d never heard that term before, but when returning to work, after two weeks off, I was struggling with a serious case of the Mondays. Determined to not bring that humdrum attitude into the rest of my week, today I decided to fight back. Continue reading
