Just Saying

IMG_6537edit


So, I've been a bad blogger lately, and I want to address that. I've been posting fairly frequently, but I haven't been commenting you guys back as much as I want to. The reason I wanted to bring this up was just because, honestly, I feel bad. You all are so supportive and sweet, and reading your comments always makes my day better, and I feel like I'm not being there for you guys. It's mainly school that's causing this. It's the last three weeks (conference week as they're called at my school) and all the work I've been putting off has to get done. When I do a post lately, it's a quick one since there's a lot I have to do, and I rarely have time to leave comments on all of your blogs. I feel like a lot of times, I choose blogging over work, and during the semester that's fine and I can deal with it, but right now, I'm afraid I'm trying to unevenly split myself two ways, when most of my focus needs to be on school. So, if posts are a bit more sporadic in the next few weeks, it's because I'm trying to get my butt in gear for school. I want to try and balance my posting with my commenting, instead of posting a lot quickly and hardly getting back to you guys, because the reason I started blogging in the first place was to be a part of the community, and I don't want that to fall by the wayside. I hope you all understand - I'm sure you all will because you're all great!

Anyway, this outfit is from yesterday when I did a bit of shopping. It may have been just a tad too cold for shorts, but who cares? I apparently do not. I kind of felt like a (chic?) camp counselor in this outfit, and that's fine by me. Oh, and keep an eye out for a giveaway coming either tonight or tomorrow! :)

  2. I know what you mean. I haven't been blogging much lately either or returning comments. I'm trying to enjoy the stress free time I have between studying and classes without worrying about having my camera around and looking cute. I don't want it to be something I just squeeze in because I feel like I have to do so! Good luck on your schoolwork!

  3. We all understand that school work needs to come first in your priority list so don't worry too much about it. We all have times when we can't comment or post as much as we'd like but we get through them and make up for them later. Focus on your studies and good luck with all projects!

  4. You are a peach, and you look lovely. I can relate-- my finals are actually this upcoming week! Yikes.

    But no worries. We'll have plenty of time to comment, write, and sing come summer.

  7. Shame on you.. you bitch... just kidding <33 =) That happens to everyone. All of these things can be so difficult to keep up with! Bummer about your ultra busy school work =( Those shorts just made me really excited. They are SO cute and I love the unique color. I buy way too much plaid, but plaid shorts?? I don't have and they are awesome!

  9. Life happens and I don't think you really need to worry about the commenting :) I think we all understand. I love love your floral shirt--so versatile. <3

  10. Oh, we all need a commenting break from time to time. I'm kind of bowled over with work too, and while I've been neglecting it in favour of commenting I'll probably disappear before the week is over. School's a bitch.

  12. there's no need to apologize for that! I think we are all going through the same right now and it's totally understandable not commenting back or not posting! DO what matters first :) there will be plenty of time during summer! Oh, Nicole those shorts are awesome! I have never seen a pair like those!

  13. I completely understand. It's hard to find time for both so fitting in both means compromising a bit. school comes first....unfortunately. great look, the shorts are a terrific colour. it has an air of vintage but new.

  14. School is tough and important so take your time:) Your outfit is cute! I love those plaid shorts!

  15. Aw don't worry about it. We all know how crazy school can get! ^_^ You look so adorable & I love when you style these shorts because I have them & I definitely need inspiration. I think I'm going to take them to Europe with me, because I've only worn them once up til now, & I really need to be forced to wear them more! They're so cute!

  18. I think a lot of us can relate to the not-replying-back-but-wanting to. I have a stack of e-mails I'm waiting to write back, it will probably end up being a quick "thank you" but I still put it off. I know I don't do much in real life, but whenever I start something (like blog reading) I like to make sure I can devote the time to actually reading and responding.

    I like the print mixing you did here! Those shorts are so bold, but they are balanced with the dainty floral of the short. It looks really cool.

  19. I'm SO DONE with high school. I've had enough. I can't believe I actually survived 4 AWFUL years. Hahahaa!

    I love your shirt. I know a blouse very similar to that one that I'm lusting after. Hopefully it will be on sale soon...http://us.asos.com/Goldie-London/Goldie-Frill-Trim-Rose-Print-Chiffon-Top/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1577462&cid=4169&sh=0&pge=1&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Rose+Print
