I have to admit that our Fall Challenge was a bit of a struggle for me, mostly because of my hectic school schedule. Our last challenge fell during my summer break when I had plenty of time to devote to outfit creation, photo shoots and post writing. The excitements and stresses of being in the first couple of months of a new job, however, made these tasks more difficult.
In a low moment a few weeks ago, my mom asked me if I would be willing to give up blogging in order to lighten my load a bit. My immediate gut reaction was "no." Regardless of how stressed I feel, this blog is one of the only things that I do for me. As a teacher, I spend most of my waking hours giving and creating for others. I really need this space because it gives me a reason to check in with myself every once in awhile and to do some thing that I truly enjoy!
So thank you for stopping by my little oasis! I hope that you've had as much fun with Create28 as I have. What were your favorite prompts this time around? These were my personal favorite looks:
Looking at these pictures together, I'm a bit surprised. If you've spent any time around these parts, you may have noticed that I adore skirts and dresses...but I'm wearing pants in all of these looks. Weird! I think this might be because I've changed my eating habits in the last couple of months and am feeling better about myself and how I look in my pants. The other common thread amongst these photos is a somewhat drapey top. I guess skinny jeans + comfy top = my fall uniform!
I definitely wouldn't have made it through this month without my beautiful friends and cohosts, Carrie and Casey! Carrie has the put-together office look absolutely down and Carey is the epitome of California cool. These were my favorite looks of theirs:
So from the bottom of my heart, thank you, for playing along and for being part of my blogging experience! Until next time, au revoir!
