Laid Back

Do you have something in your closet that you aaaalmost didn't buy, but you did, and now you wear ALL the time? That's this sweatshirt for me. I literally saw it on the sale rack at J.Crew as I was walking to the register. They only had a medium, but it was cheap and looked super comfy, so I grabbed it thinking it would be good to wear around the house on cold mornings.


I do wear this sweatshirt on weekend mornings, but I also constantly pair it with a striped tee underneath, or a button down, for an easy casual look. I attempted to dress it up a little more this time with a pair of nude heels, but honestly, I like it way better with my slip-on vans. (Hey, I tried). 

It's hard to not be super critical when Stacy sends me the pictures from our shoots, but I try to remember that not event my favorite bloggers hit it out of the park every single time. Whenever I get a little uneasy about a new post, JR reminds me that I started this blog for me. And he reminds me that the moment it becomes more of a burden than a joy, I can choose to let it go. 

I'll admit, I love to see new followers, likes, and comments, but at the end of the day, this blog is for me. Which I know seems a little strange since I put it out there for everyone else. But I know that I'm never going to sustain a living with this little guy. I'm never going to be able to quit my "real" job, nor would I want to. It's nice to have that freedom and that little reminder whenever I get overly critical. And it helps that JR's so good at the whole advice thing...I think I'll keep him around for a bit (wink wink). 

So today, enjoy the last day of October and Halloween! On to a new month tomorrow and a step closer to the end of 2016!
