Skipped a beat

I finally made the move to my new apartment this week, and needless to say, the blog took a backseat to everything else and the last few nights I've been to exhausted to do little else than sleep. I find myself writing endless to-do lists and everyday I keep thinking of dozens of things I need to go buy for my new apartment life.

Which isn't to say that I also haven't felt guilty for ignoring emails and every other form of social media this week. I'm not sure how long it will be until I'm back in the swing of things, hopefully I will get a lot accomplished this weekend, though I still may need another abbreviated blog week as well.

  1. Oh my goodness we totally understand! I hope the move went well. Good luck with getting everything settled and moved in! I'll be in the same boat fairly soon!

  2. No one can blame you for taking a blog break during such a busy time! I hope everything went smoothly with the move!

  3. Long live the Summer, right. What a pretty floral blouse, especially with the cute aqua shorts!

    Enjoy the weekend, Lydia!!

  4. Love the print of that top! And the necklace is so pretty, perfectly simple!
    And woohooo for moving!!! Things will calm down soon and you'll get nice and settled

  5. I hope everything is going as smoothly as it can - I've moved three times since 2012 (and one was the epic move from New Haven back to Canada) so I know how much it sucks and how stressful it can get! Also, I'm not typically one for floral prints but I absolutely love the one on your top - it's so pretty!

  6. Blogging sometimes has to take the back seat. I hope your move is going well! I just love that beautiful top on you!

  7. Hey girl, sometimes you've just gotta do you! Your readers will always be here for you because man, we've all been there! I've been ignoring my blog a lot more than I'd like to as well, but we'll all get our stuff together one day! <3

  8. Perfect summer look - and
    How exciting !!
    you already moved !

  9. LOVE this floral top and the color combo with the shorts is so pretty :)

  11. Love the light and bright colors, especially against the straw clutch!

  12. I love the floral top with the turquoise shorts, really nice combination! :)

    I'm glad the move went well - it is a stressful time so it's completely understandable that the blog would take a back seat!

  13. Moving is nothing if not a huge challenge - I'm honestly amazed you managed to blog at all. I'm finding it challenging enough to keep up with blogging while we work on selling our place, because everything has to be so tidy all the time for showings of our place that I no longer know where any of clothes are and, well, I could go on. Suffice it to say I'm impressed, and congratulations on the move - I'm sure once you settle in it will be smooth sailing. Bad pun considering the background of these photos, but you know what I meant ;)

  14. In love with your blouse dear, the floral pattern is so pretty!!!!

  15. I love your sandals! So pretty!
