I feel like I sound like an advertisement for Free People. It’s bordering on obsession. I can’t help how much I love everything by them! This tank is a new and super reasonable addition to their lineup. I restrained myself and bought only one colour. See… I can do it. They also have the best pretty, seamless and comfortable intimates. I had no idea! How neat is this showing out the back of the tank? It also doesn’t hurt after all of the breast cancer surgeries. And for a chilly spring evening this cocoon wrap does the trick without overheating. Perfect.

Today my blog turns 3! While I haven’t accomplished everything I wished when I started my blog I look back at some of my old posts and realize how much I’ve grown as a blogger. My main goal now is to blog more frequently and consistently. I hope you all continue to enjoy my posts and are inspired by my outfit choices. Thank you all for following me throughout my challenges with breast cancer and bearing with me. This blog would be nothing without all of you! And now for my French inspired, yet funky in its own way outfit…
Striped Tee – Urban Outfitters (Try this one.)
Wide Leg Pants – Zara (Last year. Love these.)
Flatform Sandals – Ash (Bloomingdale’s)
Skinny Scarf – J Crew (Sooooo old!)
Sunglasses – Prada
There’s no easier way to achieve chic than flopping a jacket over your shoulders without even inserting your little arms into the sleeves. Not sure why this works so well, but go with it. Trust me. I love this leather jacket. The Aqua brand at Bloomingdale’s uses super soft leather and it’s never a million dollars. This one’s from last year so I’ll try to find you a similar one, but this one will be with me for years to come. Never give up on a good leather jacket. I was also totally into the fact that the hardware on my open toe booties was gold like the studs on the jacket. While I’ve gotten over not mixing my metals when it comes to jewellery, and even do it on purpose, I find that it ties the outfit together when something actually goes!

So it appears that I’ve been in a little bit of a blogging slump lately. Part of that I can blame on my most recent surgery, but not all of it. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been undergoing surgery for breast cancer and reconstruction for more than a year now. I’m happy to say that I’m healthy and my surgeries are finally coming to an end. On with life.
As for the rest of the slump… not sure quite honestly. Maybe I just got discouraged and felt like I wasn’t making a difference or being noticed by the blogging world to the degree that I would ultimately like. How do some of these bloggers get so much attention? Maybe I wasn’t feeling “blogworthy” — a word that my husband made up to describe my outfit’s potential to go public. Maybe I didn’t think anyone cared about my outfits or my style advice. Or, maybe after undergoing six surgeries I was just too damn tired to get dressed, smile (or at least pose) for pictures and write about it. It could have been any of those really. Have any of you bloggers experienced this?
Anyhow, here I am, back at it and ready to bombard the world with my #OOTDs. New design and all. I realized that I enjoy it which is why I started doing this in the first place. I love fashion and I love sharing my ideas and personal style. Thank you all for following me and allowing me to temporarily slump!
