up the ante. day one-hundred-sixty-two

Life has been so busy! New full-time job. Posting everyday, fur babies, life. I am missing some things like crazy and am working on time management to get them all done. Because I was sick when I first started working I didn't have much energy after a long day of new and exciting things so I would go almost right to bed. Now I am feeling much better and need to manage my time out of work better!  One thing I really miss is my sewing machine. I have so many projects in mind or partially done I want to finish but I keep chosing books and tea, or working on outfit posts instead. Is anyone getting sick of outfits? Me me me, I talked a bit with a blogger friend about this yesterday. It is so much easier for me to do an outfit post because, well, I get dressed EVERYDAY. I have it down to where it takes me maybe 10 minutes to do enough photos to get a decent post going.....its just like second nature after 162 days of posting on the daily. Other things take a lot of time, even typing a lot is a lot of time so I tend to be brief on that. Anyway I guess my point is I have been making an effort to begin doing more on the blog. There is an interview and a giveaway on the way soon and really exciting guest posts as well! I also want to talk about the more serious issues in fashion and why I chose slow fashion. I am going to up the ante but bear with me it will take some getting used to not posting only outfits! 

Anyway, about the clothing. I fell in love with this sweater at first sight. The pretty pink is so fun and girly and not something I have much of, I also have an obsession with balls on sweaters and then there was a REMOVABLE cowl and I just scooped that thing up for 3.99 and finally months later am posting it. I love pink and black its really feminine and funky. I would pair this again with my black spikey boots
