Happy Thursday, friends! I hope everyone is having a great week. We’ve had a cold front here in Austin over the past several days – sadly we didn’t get any snow, but any excuse to snuggle up by the fire, am I right!?
Between the crazy weather we’ve had lately, being busy at work, adjusting to a new work out schedule, and just LIFE lately… I feel like I haven’t had much chance to create new content for you all here on FoF! This blog is definitely my baby & something that I love having in my life and I want to make it more of a priority as we move into 2018. The past month or so has felt a little off for me for some reason. I think that because this space (and Instagram) is an extension of my life in a way, as my life changes/gets busy, it will without a doubt have an effect on not only the quantity of content that I am able to create, but also the quality and the composition of it. I am trying to focus on so many different things at once lately (working out, reading more, planning travel, cooking at home more, etc. And not to mention working full time, taking care of pups, and trying to spend more time with Drew before he goes back to his night school classes), and when there are only so many hours in a day, something has to be put to the back burner. I am really trying to focus on getting more sleep lately as well, so I’ll be honest – there have been several evenings where I’ve wanted to write a blog post (or even wrote half of it), but I forced myself to put my computer down so that I could get to sleep at a decent hour (I’ve been aiming for in bed by 9pm…. but usually that doesn’t happen until closer to 10pm. Baby steps!). And usually I’m really hard on myself for that. I want to create content and I wish I could have posts up 5 days a week for you all. But I’m only human, and I have to remind myself that that is okay. It’s okay for me to not get a blog post up. It’s okay for me to not post on Instagram. It is okay. The world will keep turning, and I know that all of you that follow me here on FoF will be here the next time I do post. Chances are you don’t even really notice when I don’t have a post up, lol! So while FoF is still a huge part of my life and I look forward to it continuing to grow, I also have to grant myself some grace every now and then as my priorities are changing & shifting. And that is okay!
Anyway – that was probably more for me to just clear my head more than anything! On to today’s outfit! This was actually a look that I wore last weekend when Drew & I were running some errands; the weather was so beautiful out and almost had me thinking it was springtime for a minute. Since I’ve been wearing a lot of dark colors lately (nearly all of my coats are black), I decided to lighten things up a bit and opt for an all-neutral outfit. I typically don’t wear much white in the winter, but I love how fresh & clean a white scarf looks when paired with shades of tan! It definitely has me excited for a lighter color palette come springtime.
Thanks for stopping by!
