Summer Daze

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Get the look:
So it would appear that I've scaled down to only blogging once a week. It's a shame...because I really do love blogging, but lately I just haven't had (or made) the time. I've been prioritizing things like exercising and making plans with friends over blogging, which is definitely how it should be, but also makes me sad because I want to keep this little website chugging along. Working rather than being in school is a different kind of busy—one that isn't necessarily harder, just more scheduled and regimented. When I'm at work—I'm working, and when I'm home, I'm relaxing and trying to stay as far away from the computer as possible. (Spending more than eight hours a day staring at a computer screen can't be healthy...). On the other hand when I'm in school, I feel like I have random pockets of time throughout the day to run off to a coffee shop and blog or take outfit photos. Granted, I am staying up til 2am studying, but again...different kind of busy. 

 My style has also been reflecting this recent change in pace. This outfit is a perfect example of the more simple and relaxed vibe I have been channelling lately. More basics, neutrals, and (gasp!) subtler prints. Having less free time to actually wear lounge clothes has made me want to just wear loose, comfy "office" ensembles that make it easy for me to sit cross-legged at my desk at work when no one is looking ;) 

I think this has just been a weird summer for me. It's been a time of change, growth, and adjustment. And even though I'm working full-time, there really is this intangible quality about summer that manages to always leave me in a daze. This summer, more than ever. Maybe it's because it's my first summer living alone in LA or maybe its something else...who really knows. P.S. apologies if you were just looking for outfit photos and read this super-cryptic-stream-of-consciousness blog post instead. It's past midnight, which has apparently become "past my bedtime" :)
