Life, Blogging and Pineapples

March 23, 2015

Hat: Forever 21, similar here; Striped Tank: Hurley, similar here; Denim: Paige here; Denim Top: TJ Maxx, similar here; Shoes: Nike Air Max Thea here

This is one of my favorite looks for those lazy days (which is most Mondays for me as a hairdresser). Striped shirt, sneakers and a plaid or denim shirt around your waist. Add a fun print like I did with my pineapple hat, and you’re set. I so wish Forever would bring this hat back. It’s one of my favorite fun print hats. Something about pineapples just screams summer, and it makes me oh-so-happy. I actually did a similar look to this on the blog right when I got this hat last year. So if you’ve seen a similar look, ummmm I love you. Because that means you’ve been following me all along. 😛

So last night I actually wasn’t sure if I was going to get a blog post up today. I always try to post on Mondays and Wednesdays or Thursdays and then maybe post a tutorial over the weekend. I’m usually really great about it, but lately I’ve been working a ton and any time my hubby is home, I just want to be with him not working on other stuff because our time together is so limited. Last night I had a little melt down. I don’t know if any of you have ever had a hubby go through the fire academy but it’s HARD. Our time together is crazy limited. He doesn’t even get to have his phone during the day to text. He wakes up every day at 4am and gets home at 6:30pm. Between needing to eat dinner, shower and get ready for the next day, he goes to bed before it seems like we’ve even had a minute to talk about our days. And for some reason I had a little melt down yesterday just feeling so sad the weekend was over and like no one understands. We came home from church, and I planned to sit down with some ice cream and the computer and get my blog post done. But then we couldn’t find my keys and literally spent an hour looking for them. By the end of it, I was so emotionally drained because losing my keys just felt like another thing on top of everything. So I decided I just needed to go to sleep and save my post for another day.

And that’s just the way it is sometimes. Sometimes things happen, and you can’t do what you planned, and that’s ok. Sometimes you just need to be emotional and let life happen and go to bed early just so you can snuggle with your hubby a little extra. And in my case, be ok if you don’t post right on time.

And guess what, this isn’t even my original outfit post. This is actually exactly what I’m wearing right now, like if you saw me out right now, this is what I’d be in. 😛 I just decided to switch my posts because I woke up early to go to work and had a friend who was able to take photos for me (Thanks, Sarah!), so I decided to post these instead because this is one of my fave kind of outfits! (I don’t know what it is, but if I could always, I would just literally post the same day what I’m wearing that day. I feel like then I’m being the most “real”. Silly and not practical, I know. But that’s my dream. Haha.) And I know I still could have posted tomorrow instead, and it wouldn’t have mattered, but I woke up got dressed and was excited about sharing this outfit with you. And so I did. I’m learning to just post when I’m excited about it, not when it’s stressing me out or there’s other life things that need my attention more. <3

Love you all! Thanks for sharing this little space with me!
