Today’s Outfit: Blanket Scarves

A short message on my blogging absence:

Needless to say it’s been a while. When I started this blog I was one of those girls who “wasn’t going to fall into blogging ruts.” I have so many ideas, so many new blog topics bubbling in my brain in a daily basis, how could I go days or weeks without posting? I was so nieve. I have so much respect for the many bloggers I follow who post on a daily basis with marvelous photos and flawless text, how do they have the time? And honestly, how do they have the motivation? I think I lost a little bit of myself in the first weeks, maybe months I began scratching the surface of the blogging world. I want to have a blog like her or her or her I would tell myself, and in that I started to forget why I started blogging in the first place.

I started blogging to express myself and share my life with others to hopefully benefit them in some way or another. But right now, looking at what I have accomplished so far I’m not sure to what extent I have done that. So here comes another change, I’m going to try to focus on making my posts a little more me. I know I can still get there someday, so don’t give up on me yet. Those million blogging ideas in my brain, they are still there and I am going to write about them all.


Before I mention anything about myself, my day or my outfit I want to take a moment to address the series of attacks in Paris this evening. My heart is broken as I read the latest statistics reporting that well over 100 people have been killed in the attacks. Social media is blowing up with the hashtags #PrayforParis and #PeaceforParis. Please take a moment to send the citizens of Paris your thoughts and prayers in this horrific time and also to thank God for the many blessings of life. In the midst of such heartbreaking events I can’t help but think about how completely blessed I am. ┬áIn the wise words of Albert Einstein: “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.”

For me personally today was a wonderful day. Yes, I know it is Friday the 13th, the oh-so-spooky superstitious day known for horrible things, but my day was great despite the clouded skies and chilly breeze. I spent my evening out with my boyfriend getting sushi at my favorite restaurant, singing in the car to extremely loud rap songs and finally coming home to my warm bed feeling so blessed.

My outfit today I feel reflected this mood. I simply wore a light wash pair of skinny jeans with my new knee high boots, a warm white sweater and of course my new, most favorite blanket scarf ever. I’m completely obsessed with the blanket scarf fad and can’t wait to purchase more in every plaid color combination possible! They keep me so warm and cozy, plus can be worn many many different ways. They are the perfect piece for this chilly season.

What made you feel blessed today?
XX,

Shannon
