I'm baaaack! And for good. I promise.

Top: Forever 21, $14.80
Skirt: Old Navy, $20
Necklace: Forever 21, $3.80
Bracelets: Old
Shoes: Charlotte Russe, $35
Nails: Naughty Nautical by Essie (From their new summer collection! Super cute!)

My sincerest apologies (again) for my nearly-a-month absence and over-a-month since I've regularly blogged! I blame the warm weather, moving, and a new job (just like I did last month). Every day, I would promise myself that I would photograph my outfit when I got home from work that night. But then I'd get home from work that night, totally frazzled, and be in my pj's and on the couch before I realized I'd taken my nice clothes off. And you all know, once nice clothes come off and pj's come on, there's no reversing that. Period.

And so I forced myself to make promises to a few readers (primarily my real-life friend Kirsten, who writes an incredible food blog that you should check out!) that I would absolutely update by Monday, no questions asked. And I hope you all are enjoying this post, because I fought for it. I got about three hours of sleep last night, and when I got home today, my husband said I (because I don't remember doing this) fell down on the sofa and promptly zonked out, and then woke up an hour later and put myself in bed. None of which I remember. All I remember is waking up in a pool of my own drool and my husband laughing at me. He's a real treat.

But the good news is, I pulled myself together and was motivated enough to go a great distance for my photos (and by great distance I mean my new apartment's balcony), and here you have it! Lynette, in clothes, ignoring the other people on their balcony that were staring at me. 

I'm happy to be back. :)

  14. I missed you Lynette. I have checked your blog at least 4-5 times to see if you were back. I am glad your new job is going well. I agree about the PJs, once they are on nothing else matters.

  17. We got our slumps out of our systems and now we can return to regularly scheduled programming. I WISH I HAD A BALCONY! I just realized yesterday when I was like "hey maybe I should bust out that big fancy camera and charge it" that I totally packed it up and put it in storage. <--- I'm special.
