Outfit: green + leopard (and life!)

Hello blog world, I have missed you! How about a favorite fall outfit and then I'll explain where I've been? I'm wearing two of my favorite things here... animal print and kelly green.

Outfit: green + snow leopard

Blazer - Kohl's, recent / Cropped pants - GAP, recent / Snow Leopard blouse - Target, last year
Wedges - Target, last year / Bee bracelet - Target, early this year
Necklace - J Crew Factory, early this year

So, where have I been? Well, as many of you know I decided to go back to school last year to get my teaching credential (I got my BA in 2010). I work full time at my office job and then I either go to class or have online classwork. I have been getting home at 9pm and have been too tired to do much of anything at that point. I don't want to give up on my little blog/hobby though! To keep my sanity while I finish the last7 weeks of the quarter I am going to make a few changes....

1. My new goal is to post 2 "full" outfit of the days each week and then a third post that has my outfit pics I take via Instagram (@laurennicholle3) which is much less time consuming.

2. For the most part I won't be taking the time to search for and link to everything I'm wearing. I will be sure to note where it's from and whether or not it is recent. The time to search and link (especially when it's an old item and you're trying to find something similar) is very time consuming.

3. I probably won't be linking up or commenting as much I normally would (and this is the one that makes me sad because interacting with my fellow bloggers is the best part about blogging). Again, it's just the time issue. I am going to try to set aside a couple hours each week to catch up on reading and commenting.

I hope you all understand and hang in there with me until this quarter is over... believe me I can't wait for things to get back to normal!! Hope everyone is having a fantastic October so far!

  8. Good luck! I started school up again too and with a full time job blogging has taken a plunge. But we gotta do whats good for us right?! =) I look forward to seeing your posts!

  9. I love kelly green! It's such a fun color.

    I did the same thing a few years ago.... went back to school to get certified to teach. My bachelors was in business, but my job as a paralegal just wasn't doing it for me. So, I went back to school and now I teach third grade... And I love it! Good luck to you!! You'll LOVE teaching!
