6 of 30: loss of momentum




You know? I was originally going to start out this blog post with another round of I'm sorries: for lack of blog posts, for lack of comments, for lack of activity in the blogging world. But no, this is something that I do for fun and life is far far far more exciting right now :P

Robert is back in Portland officially. I'm a little behind in my summer classes, since I missed the first day and I work a crazy amount this week. My little blog can deal with a little inactivity. Especially, I think, since from here on out, my photos are going to be just crazy amounts of awesome :)

.



This is actually what I wore this past Sunday for Robert's graduation. It is a lovely Modcloth dress that I purchased when they were having their awesome 50% off select items if you are a Facebook friend deal. I've been slowly trying to incorporate more vibrant colors into my wardrobe and I loved this dress, with the flutter sleeves. Plus, his graduation seemed a good excuse to buy a new dress. I felt a little overdressed, but that is okay.

This photoshoot was fun. We drove up to Ojai, which is a little town near to where Robert lived in California. It's cute and rural with lots of pretty fields. I am proud to say that this was the first time we trespassed for pictures. Meaning we just walked over some barbed wire where the fence had collapsed in.





I am slowly failing this 30 for 30. I mean, I've only been wearing things from the 30, but there are already 4-5 outfits I've worn but haven't had the chance to photograph. Sometimes, it feels less carefree and happy when you're worrying about when and where you're going to take outfit photos.

At some point, I will be able to catch up with blogging, but for now, it's definitely not one of my priorities. I'm thankful as ever that there are some of you reading this. Please be patient with me.

  1. You're right, there's no need to apologize about not posting! Though I frequently struggle with the same thing, you're certainly entitled to live your life :)

  15. Glad you are enjoying your summer! And definitely no need to apologize! There should always be priorities. Love the modcloth dress, it's prefect! And look at you being a rebel and trespassing!

    And you can always document those last 5 missed outfits by recreating them and doing a "catch up post" of all of them so that you are caught up with the 30X30. Just an idea. :)

  16. Well your outfit is still adorable!
    You are only allowed to sporadically update if you are having a fantastic time IRL ;)
    We know you'll be back when life gets boring again.

  18. I love your dress and I'm a new follower!
    I always wanted to try the 30 for 30 challenge but I don't think I could pull it off, I'm too lazy to take pics of my outfit everyday.

  19. Oh Lea, I do think that the more you have fun outside the blogosphere, the lovelier the stories and photos you share with us, even when posts are sparse! So definitely priorities are important, and in the end I don't think the quality of your blog will suffer in any way.

    Those are such gorgeous photos! It seems to me like that dress is something Spring would sew herself. :)

  20. Blogging should be like writing letters to your pen pal... Something you do for fun, when you have time, not a stressor. Sounds like you realize that though, so I'm preaching to the choir. I'm basically just trying to say, don't apologize! You're living your life.
    The pictures are gorgeous, I'm glad you trespassed. That dress is just darling. You may have felt overdressed but I bet everyone else was just super jealous and felt underdressed. :)
