Pom Pom Stripes

pom pom stripes

Granted I blog as a hobby, but I kind of feel like I haven't been a very good blogger in these past few weeks. Life has been a wee bit more hectic than usual - work, travel, work, travel, plus I'm moving soon! - and some things that I enjoy doing but aren't a priority tend to fall to the wayside a little bit. So please bear with me for a few more weeks as I attempt to juggle the regular everyday with packing my life up in boxes. Spots and stripes make it easy to get dressed, and of course, my fave no-fail shoes.

  6. I agree with Frannie's comment, real life always comes first when it's a hobby. Nice to have easy outfits and no-fail shoes to fall back on. Hope your move goes well!

  7. Love the spots and stripes!
    I have to say that it is refreshing to hear someone who is such a great blogger say they are struggling to do it when life gets hectic. I am having the same issue this month and boy do I feel like a slacker. Ah well - that's life, right! No biggie!

    1. I'm sure the question everyone asks themselves when they need to pack to move is "where did I get all this stuff?!"

  10. I wouldn't have noticed you've been a bad blogger if you hadn't said. Now you have mentioned it I still don't agree ;-)

    1. Aw, thanks, Louise! I guess I notice because I haven't written longer posts or gone to check out other blogs as frequently with lack of time - I appreciate your kind words though!

  15. Great outfit! And don't worry about blogging...we will be here when you have time. I am always amazed at how much stuff I accumulate and moving always helps me clear out things that I didn't even knew I own.

    1. The trash has been overfilling lately - not with big things per se, but there is a ton of just junk we tend to just store away in drawers and closets.

    1. Aw, thanks, Amber! I actually feel like a bit of a slacker since I haven't been writing much and haven't had the time to go visit other blogs as often. The photo part is the easiest - I've gotta get dressed anyways, I can spare 5 minutes to take some pics!
