my wishlist

Friday, January 23, 2015

I've been on a bit of a hiatus. The break from the blog and my computer in general wasn't planned or intended but it was needed.

Sickness has taken it's toll on our house (again) and I've been foregoing my evening computer time for more sleep. As much as I've missed keeping up with all of you, I desperately needed the sleep.

Neither mini-me nor I are 100% yet but we're getting there. I still haven't quite figured out how Mr. B avoids all this sickness garbage. C'est la vie.

REFOCUS

regularly scheduled post: My Wishlist

I feel as though fashion and I have also had a little parting of ways. Naturally, I'm still getting dressed in the morning (kind of a requirement at the office) and I haven't resorted back to yoga pants as a daily staple; however, I certainly don't feel like I have a good handle on my wardrobe right now.

I need to refocus.

I tried to think of concrete things I want/need to make this 'refocus' a little easier and I'm coming up with nothing. 

What I'm wishing for is something more abstract than a specific item... it's the feeling you get when you put together the perfect outfit. 

Unlike a new purse (which I also need but can't seem to narrow the choices down enough to share), I can't pop into a store and purchase that 'put together' feeling. The capacity is there, I've had it before, I just need to find it. Maybe spend some time sorting out my closet. 

If you're a fashion-lover/blogger you likely know the feeling I'm talking about. Instead of leaving the house in the morning feeling okay, you look in the mirror and think "I love this". I'm bot loving my outfits lately. This may be directly related to being sick and the general fatigue that comes with that. 

I WILL feel GREAT in my clothes again... stay tuned..

  2. I was SO sick last month and got sick TWICE. And, my daughter had a pretty bad asthma attack. It was a terribly exhausting month. It drained me. You'll get back into a normal rhythm I am sure once you all get well and stay well for awhile!! The blog can always wait :)

  3. Sorry to hear you are still battling this sick phase, hope it gets better soon!! And my hubby is the same he always manages to avoid it even when both my girls and myself have been sick. Blogging breaks are necessary sometimes just take time to recover:)
