Skipped a Beat

That was an unexpected two week break; sometimes I allow the trivialities of life to keep getting in the way. I had a beautiful week of warm weather at the end of September, but both my 'regular' photographers (my mom and sister) were busy moving my sister back from the west coast, so I was left to my own devices and managed to take photos with the tripod exactly once.

When my mom and sister returned it was a week of chaos in the house, and while there is still a suitcase barricading 90% of my door and a pile of boxes that I expect will be camping out until Christmas, things are shifting into their new normal. Obviously this includes sharing my shoe wardrobe on a daily basis (because my sister only has 'California' shoes) and pretty much anything else in my closet with fluid enough sizing that it will work on her taller, slimmer frame.

Of course there are some benefits to having my sister back home, like being able to take outfit photos together, and hopefully we will get into the routine of it soon. She is still working on starting/restarting her blog, but I will be sure and share it once it's live.

  1. Yea, it's hard to get back into the blogging rhythm. I was technically "off" for quite a while. Luckily with the honeymoon content I've got a week or so more of every day content but after that I'm sure I'll be back to only twice a week because we just seem to never want to take photos. I'm trying to take some now when I actually do something so I'll have a bit of a backup but it still won't be enough, ha ha.

  2. What a perfect fall look! I'm really loving that bag too! The color is gorgeous!

  3. I feel like sometimes in life we just have to give ourselves a pass. I had grand designs for everything I was going to accomplish when we got home from Greece - but instead I was sick and spent three days on my couch watching movies starring cartoon bears. And you know what... I didn't take any of the photos I planned, or write any of the articles I had in mind, but no one else is any the wiser. Except you, now ;) This is a beautiful outfit to come back with. I love how well all of the muted tones go together and play off the creamy shade of your trousers.

  4. It's crazy how easily we can be thrown off and it just continues. I'm glad that you'll have your sister with you to blog and for photos!

  5. Sometimes unexpected breaks are exactly what we DIDN'T know we needed! Love this look on you!

  6. I know exactly what you mean ... sometimes things happens and the plans go out of the window and I find it hard to get back to it ... sometimes blogging feels like a lot of work for little gratification :)


  7. Love this entire look on you! That jacket is perfect for the fall and the top you paired it with is so cute xoxo sarah

  8. Such a cute floral cami, so nice for autumn with the brown jacket!

    So exciting your sister is home and you'll be able to help each other with your blogs! I am lucky that whenever I'm out with my sister she will snap pics for me for my blog, although we don't get as much time together as I'd like!

    Hope that your week is off to a good start! :)

  9. Yay to sister time! Love your handbag - it's perfect for fall!


  10. Even though things have been a little hectic for some time now, I'm glad you're enjoying having your sister around. How neat that she's also into style and can take photos for you as well! That's really handy!

  11. I love this fall outfit and background. Welcome back to your sister - just in time for lovely fall weather!

  12. That is the best part of blogging! You are your own boss and can take a few days or weekend whenever you need!

  13. Such a gorgeous outfit for Fall, and totally loving this jacket babe!!

    cute & little

  14. Sometimes, whether you intend it or not, breaks just happen - but it looks like you're back with a bang!

  16. I really need to take pictures this week since I am creating blog content with a capsule wardrobe but I am not feeling it! It is going to be hard to get it done!

  17. Oh wow I can picture the state of your home right now - it probably looks like mine every time I come back from a trip. My husband just stares...
    This is such an amazing moto jacket! I look forward to seeing the sister duo soon.

  18. Oh how fun your sister is by you! I love this leather jacket and the white pants are fun for fall!

  19. Ohhhh crushing on this leather jacket. Such a rich, gorgeous, amazing color on you!

  20. I allow the same things to affect my life sometimes as well. I love the way you put outfits together and always love how you add in accessories! That bag needs to be in my closet.
