summer {blog} break

As it would appear, I unintentionally took most of the summer off from blogging. Simply put, my mind has been elsewhere, wrapped up in other wonderful things, as I tried to enjoy as much of the summer as possible between work and new projects and adventures. I am planning to get back into a routine and pick things up where they left off,  only there may be a few changes. A funny thing I noticed when I stopped posting regular outfits was that I put a crazy amount of pressure on myself to come up with them, so much so that my personal style felt stifled and flat. In my weeks off I found a renewed interest in the contents of my closet. As it turns out, I'm much more creative when I'm not trying to be and much more likely not to stow away certain pieces that I'd much rather wear right this instant because they'll photograph better on Tuesday, with that skirt, etc. For the first time in ages I have been happy with what I'm wearing every single day and that's what counts. Moving forward I'd like to keep that approach. As for cocktails, you can expect to see a lot more of them, no longer reserved exclusively for Friday. And, some fun new things, mostly in the form of writing. I hope you'll follow along. Thank you for reading and enjoy this last day of August.
