the last day

H&M dress, Miss Trish for Target lizard sandals (bought on eBay), Five Below Sunglasses, and Prada bag from Panache Consignment.

I have no excuse (besides being busy) for not blogging in two weeks. I do however have an excuse for looking so miserable in these photos. I've been sick with some mystery virus for the past week or so and it's really getting to me. Since I still have to work, I've been sticking to mostly jeans, shorts, sweaters, and tees. Trying to look somewhat put together while being comfortable.
Today was the first time I put on a dress in what felt like ages, but I had to - it's the last day of summer.

This dress is probably the last thing I ever bought from H&M here before they went of out business. I have to stop myself from thinking about that or else I might cry (not really...well maybe a little). I guess I'll have to make a random trip to Buffalo.
Anyway, I call this little number my tulip dress. The skirt just reminds me of one. That might be crazy but I'm always harboring a little bit of crazy.

Pretty simple and boring outfit, but I hope you liked my return to civilization.
Here's my latest YouTube vid.

Thrifted dress, and Dolce & Gabbana sandals purchased from eBay.

I did fully intend on getting back on a regular blogging schedule, but life truly does get in the way. So busy at work and my birthday distracted me.
Speaking of life getting in the way, the weather turned truly nasty when I tried to take these photos outside. Inside photos don't work too well with my camera.

This dress has a classic silhouette, so I added a pretty modern shoe to spice it up a bit. That's me - pretty classic with modern sensibilities. I love living in the present and even with my love for all things vintage, I wouldn't choose to live in any other time. Being a modern woman means I have choices. I can be a career women if I want or be a stay at home mom. I can dip into all past decades for inspiration. I can appreciate and love things from all times. One day I can be Victorian, the next day I can be rock n' roll. And the day after that I can be both if I want to.
I love mixing, blending, turning things on their head.
That's the beauty of this time.
I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record a lot of time on this blog. I just feel incredibly lucky everyday to wake up with what I have. Humbled by having a choice. A lot of people don't have one. It's the luck of the draw. You can't choose where you're born, what privileges (or lack thereof) you get.
I'm not bragging, I just want to be aware of what I have and enjoy it rather than wanting more my whole life. Don't get me wrong, it's good to want more for your life; to have a drive that pushes you to gain success, to make yourself the best person you can be.
But I like to look at what I already have. Sometimes if you're always searching for more, you can lose what you already have.

Enough ramblings for today. I don't expect you to read it all. If you did, thank you. And if you rolled your eyes and you thought "HOLY CRAP, how cliche," it's okay, I did too.
