Surfacing

Is this thing on?

Wow, it’s been a long time. Nine and a half months since my last post. I could have had a baby in the intervening time! But just to be clear, I didn’t; that’s definitely not why I haven’t been posting since February. No secret babies. I just decided to skip all the warmer months and only post when it’s cold.

Well, not really. I think I’ve been having some writer’s block and I needed a break. But now I kinda feel like getting back into blog writing and celebrating some of the more frivolous things in life, because Lord knows I need some distraction right now. Unfortunately, my 2015 hasn’t really been any better than my 2014 (and in some ways 2015 has been a lot worse), but I’m determined not to focus on the negative and just keep moving forward.

(Also, I say “frivolous” but I really shouldn’t diminish my love of clothes and makeup and hair just because some people might think it’s vain and unimportant. Never underestimate the power of these things.)

Lately it’s been a lot of comfy clothes for me, a lot of stretchy elastic waistbands, leggings that can masquerade as pants (like these and these), and t-shirts with dogs on them. I have to watch out with the stretchy bottoms though; they’re a little too forgiving to all the binge-eating I’ve been doing lately. (I call it eating my feelings and my feelings have been delicious.)

A couple of weekend outfits:

 

J.Crew t-shirts (springer spaniel from fall 2014, bulldog puppy from earlier this year) // Kit & Ace Margo Tank // J.Crew Factory cardigan (on left) // Gap modal motercycle jacket (on right) // lululemon wunder under leggings // puma running shoes

And a colder weather outfit (not ready to break out the full winter gear yet), along with my new storage cube from Crate & Barrel. It might not live there permanently, trying to figure out where I want to keep it, but it’s housing all of our winter accessories (hats, scarves, gloves) and providing a place to sit while we put our shoes on. I’ve had this Anthropologie jacket for 5 years now and the lining is starting to tear, but it’s still a spring/fall workhorse for me.

Anthro Cream Confection Jacket (2010) // Kit & Ace Evans Long Sleeve // Club Monaco pompom tuque // lululemon wunder under leggings // eric michael motorcycle boots

Hoping for a few more interesting outfits in the next little while, but we’ll see. I have no idea if anyone will still read this, but that’s ok, it’s really just for me!

  1. Yay! I was glad to see your post show up on my feed this morning. You're the opposite of me. I post during the warm months and not so much now.

    I like your dog shirts!

    I'm sorry 2015 has not been better than 2014.

    1. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! I've realized I'm a cold weather girl through and through, so it makes sense that I'm reverse-hibernating. ;)

  2. Thank goodness I no longer have to check your blog and suffer the disappointment of no update plus the image nude Homer prancing! Welcome back!

  4. ha ha! I was just thinking the same thing yesterday. I`m hoping to resurrect my old bear after an even longer pause! I guess we're trapped inside for the next few months, may as well spend it sort of communicating with the outside world!

    Yeah, my 2015 was mildly better than the disaster that was 2014. Let's hope the next is better! Nice to see your face and that forever classic Cream Confection coat!

    1. I hope you do resurrect too, I was thinking that yours is another blog that has been silent for a while! At least I follow you on Instagram and I don't feel like you've completely disappeared. :) Glad to hear that this year was better for you...2016 has to be better, right? I keep thinking it can't get any worse, but that's what I thought last year. :S
