I'm Not Going To Pretend...

I'm sorry I haven't updated in a few days, but I don't really know what to write about since I don't want this blog to be too personal. Let's just say that I am going through something painful right now and I don't want to come on here and pretend to be okay. It seems like a lie, and nobody likes a lie.
Sooooo, this blog might be lacking in substance for a little while, but I will still be taking outfit shots. I'm just not sure how many I can get this week because it's supposed to rain until Saturday.

These are from a day or two ago. It was a little rainy out while I took them, but not too bad.

Shirt: Faded Glory
Skirt w/ belt: Forever 21
Tights: Apt. 9

Boots: BC Footwear

One thing I can be glad about is that this skirt has pockets. :) I loved it as soon as I saw it in Forever 21, but I didn't think it would work out for me. I decided 'what the heck' and tried it on anyway. I love the way it fits! The only problem is that it's a little on the short side. :\


  1. I don't know how tall you are, but I find EVERYTHING at F21 is a little on the short side!

    I too debate trying to post false cheeriness on my blog, which is why I stick strictly to clothing-talk. I wish you the best of luck with whatever the issue is, and though it may sound insincere because I don't know you, I'm truly sorry to hear that you're having a rough time.

  2. Wow! I love this outfit. How have I never seen your blog before? You are too cute. Your outfits are great! :) I have very similiar tights and I love your skirt! x

  3. I love the stripes with the tights!! By the way, I think Forever21 skirts these past couple of years have all been a bit on the short side. They used to have great cotton ones that hit just above the knee, I wish they would bring that length back!


  4. you look great! I hope whatever you are going through gets better :)

  5. Gorgeous tights.Do they have cotton gusset???

  6. Love this outfit.. no surprise there, as I love ALL of your outfits! I hope you've had time for tea & vintage shopping.. it's good for the soul :)

  7. i'm really loving this faded glory shirt and isn't it fantastic when you realize the skirt or dress you're wearing has hidden pockets? it's always such a pleasant surprise :)

    i hope you cheer up a bit over the next few days and that whatever or whoever is causing you pain goes away asap. feel better! wishing you all the best in the world.

  8. aw, please don't stop posting outfits. they're always so adorable, and i find myself checking your blog way too often. love the skirt a whole lot. tons of idea come to mind when i see these kind of stripes. they remind me a lot of the alexa chung dungarees!

    feel better soon doll. i understand why you don't wanna get too personal, just turn all that sad energy into something great for this blog!

  9. I'm sorry to hear you are going though a hard time. Keep your head up, I'm sure things will get better before you know it. Don't worry, we will be waiting here for whenever you feel better to write posts. Just concentrate on feeling better :)

  10. i love that skirt! it will transition so perfectly into the summer months!

    i hope that whatever you're going through gets better soon :( if it has stopped raining make sure you go out for a long walk in the cool air--that always clears my head and makes me feel so much better!

  11. I am completely loving the patterned tights under the striped cute!

    I hope that you are feeling better soon...sometimes I find blogging and my blog friendships take my mind off of tough things going on in my life. :)

  12. That skirt is really cute and I love ones with pockets.
