Teepees and hayrides.
Gosh you guys...the weekends are so great but the weeks...they really start out rough. It seems like I've been spinning in circles to get organized and when I finally do...it's Thursday and I just collapse.
By a show of hands, anyone else feel this way? Please say yes...
I used to cringe when people told me growing up, "Just you wait, time flies. Enjoy right now. The years go by quicker and quicker."
Sure, it's true but that doesn't mean I have to like it! Let's be honest, it's November. (I round up once we hit mid-month. I think it's the sales woman in me; we live and die by quotas and end of month goals)
This week I am pledging to take time back. I know my kids get so much of my attention but I need to dedicate more time to my husband and I doing "couple" things and me doing "me" things. I think time moves fast when we don't take a second to pause and breathe. I know I acknowledge the beauty in the ordinary because social media has opened my eyes to the impact of a strong visual. But, more and more I'm seeing the dizzying effects of being on the go and I want to create new time boundaries.
A time to blog. A time for social media. A time to work out. A time to talk. A time to sit down and eat (not stand up). A time to sleep...more. A time to be pampered. A time to laugh more. Do you feel me?
I'm babbling guys but stick with me this week. Tomorrow is a fun post with DSW with more Fall goodness on the way.
When people talk about Spring. I shrug. I dunno. Florals + me = no bueno. I’ve never been into ultra fem looks. I mean, I get it…they look lovely on many women, my friends even! Just not on me. I guess I consider myself more of a boot stomper. A ripped denim wearer. No frills. You get what you get.
While my wardrobe has decidedly taken a turn for neutrals; I still have my color moments and well, winter is still in the building if you live in Chicago. So…we back to sweaters. Does this green count as a neutral because I lurve it! I cannot tell you how many DMs and comments I received when I posted on IG so here are the Q+A’s:
Hi! Popping in to say, “I’m still alive!” Busy work weeks will do that to you! All that being said, I have some really fun pieces to share starting with this balloon sleeve top. I am somewhat of a late bloomer when it comes to online shopping destinations. I know what I like and I am loyal. Stumbling upon Vici was a happy accident. Thank you Instagram gods.
I punctuate every outfit I put together with shoes. It’s always the frosting on the proverbial fashion cake. I’m just a shoe girl and it’s always been that way.
It’s also true that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect red boot for what seems like my entire life. An exaggeration, I assure you but it feels that way. It’s always when you’re not looking that you find exactly what you need. Match that with a budget freeze you have yourself the perfect problem. Until now…
Solopreneur. Mompreneur. Entrepreneur. They all point to the same title but what does it mean for you as you contemplate this roller coaster of a journey? I can sum it up in two words: wildly exhausting. Wild and exhausting don’t always have to have a negative connotation. I was a wild 20-something which = I had a heck of a lot of fun! Traveling Europe was exhausting which = fulfilling, enriching, my brain exploded with an appreciation for a different culture.
In case you don’t live in the Midwest, it is f-f-f-f-freezing here. Dressing cute is still a priority but warmth is everything and while I never thought I would be a pullover girl, I can tell you I have officially converted this week! And the best news of all is that the one I am wearing is a mere $20! You cannot beat that!
It recently dawned on me that it’s been ages since I last did an outfit post. I guess life has been busy! Trust me, I’ve been wearing clothes. I swear!
You may have your NYE outfit picked out. Where are my procrastinators out there?
It’s almost too good to be true…a rare Monday post. I used to be so diligent!
I’ve recovered, and I 100% mean “recovered”, from a busy weekend…ready to tackle Monday. This is what it felt like before when work wasn’t as busy and I was actually productive during the work week. It feels great!
