outfit of the day(bird): i got nothin'

shirt~ Old Navy
shorts~ Marshalls
shoes~ Steve Madden
necklaces~ Etsy and F21

i have been sitting here, staring at my computer screen, for about an hour. i have started three different stories and deleted them all. i have put my computer down and walked away for a few minutes, trying to gather my thoughts and think of something interesting to share, only to come back and stare at the screen some more, my mind blank. it's not like i lead the least interesting life ever. no, my kids are a constant source of entertainment and funny stories. my husband, sisters, friends, and i are always laughing about one thing or another. i just can't seem to think of any of those things right now. i think i am just tired. we have had a very busy few weeks. i feel like summertime is just so busy, with hardly a moment to rest. always on the go. trying to get outside and enjoy the weather and do something fun every day. not to mention getting all the boring stuff, like the piles of laundry and dishes, the grocery shopping, the vacuuming, the bathroom cleaning, the cooking (i think you get the picture), done. and everything is just a little bit harder, a little more tiring, and a lot bit busier when you have small children. i am not complaining. i have a lot of help. it am definitely not doing this all on my own. but i am just tired. and blank. and i am sorry i am a bad blogger because of that.

on another note, if you are thinking this outfit is a bit more fancy and/or shorter than something i would normally wear, you are correct. i wore this for megan's bachelorette party and i just felt like wearing something short and sassy. luckily, this outfit was also extremely comfy, which is a requirement for all my outfits! i wish i had more opportunities to wear formal shorts. i mean, really, don't we all?

  1. You're not a bad blogger (unless I am too, because I've been there before many a time!). And I love the short and fancy (and comfy - that's awesome!!) outfit on you.:)

  2. I love the scallop on the shorts.

    Having something fun, creative and unique to write about daily is tough. We all have off days.


  3. I totally hear you - I have had a hard time coming up with fun things to blog about lately too! I think it's just summer!

    This is the perfect bachelorette party outfit!

  4. I often get writer's block too. My life isn't always the most interesting!

    I think the scalloped shorts are so cute! You could dress them down to get more wear out of them. :)
