I don't think I can even begin to express just how busy we are these days. It feels like we've both gone from zero to sixty and there's no end in sight. I suppose that's just the way life goes, but we're used to enjoying a pretty laid back life with lots of time for laying around watching movies, eating ice cream and going for long walks. Not so much these days! I'm trying not to let the blog suffer but there are days when it may have to take a backseat to contractors and painters and movers and other such mundane things.
In the upcoming weeks I may be posting more photos than written posts since the writing is always what takes me the longest. I inevitably end up with photos edited, sitting in front of the computer trying to think of something interesting to say! Hmmm... I'm not so sure I'm accomplishing that with this post. ;) In the midst of it all, I am super excited about the little pile of things I've been collecting in the corner of my closet to organize my new office space. Just yesterday I brought home a cute little shelf to store all of my sewing supplies.
Now, on to the outfit... it's sort of hard to believe this skirt hasn't been seen on the blog before. It's been my go-to skirt on the mildly hot days we've been having. It's just the softest, most worn in cotton and I love the bias plaid. The rest of the outfit consists of a simple white tank top and the shoes and hat I've been pairing with everything this summer. On a side note, as I was taking these photos, little groundhogs kept peeking their heads out of the tall grass to see what I was up to. So adorable! And much less bothersome than the human onlookers that a girl and her tripod tend to attract. Alrighty, enough of my incoherent ramblings!
