New month, new blogger?

I've felt sort of "stuck" lately. I sit down to blog and the words just won't come. And then it turned into the thought of blogging giving me a slight panic attack so I didn't even open my computer. Seriously, I haven't checked my email in two weeks and now the red bubble number is well into the hundreds and I'm twitching even more. I've let so much go that I've been struggling with where to start to fix it all. But I do have a plan so stayed tuned. I'll talk more on that tomorrow.

I've been dying to break out this faux leather moto jacket I got from a sale at forever21. They had it for $21 and I just couldn't pass it up. I really love a fitted jacket or blazer. 
Royal blue is such a lovely color on Jana. I love how classic and timeless wearing a monochromatic dress is. Ashleigh looks like a modern 50's chic in her polka dots. Visit their blogs for full details.

The temperature dropping has me daydreaming of Fall although we are not quite there yet. So that's really the only part of this outfit that isn't practical just yet, but I couldn't stand keeping it hidden in my closet any longer. You will see plenty more of it over the next few months.
To transition this look completely for Fall or Winter I would swap the sandals for ankle booties, exchange the tank for a light weight sweater and add a scarf. To make it practical for now I would just need to loose the jacket. It's been in the 70's so lightweight jeans and a tank are pretty comfy all day.

I'm obsessed with monochromatic looks. They are so classy if you ask me and you don't have to neglect your sense of style to create a monochromatic look. Meaning you can do this in a punk/rock style, business/dressy, girly girl, etc. You can make a monochromatic look reflect who you are and even in your favorite color. I typically go to neutrals when creating these looks because I tend to have more options in my closet, but I think it would be so fun to create a bold, colorful monochromatic look like this one here or here! Aren't they fun?

  5. You are looking fabulous, lady! I am taking a photo of you to my hairstylist so I can get your cut - seriously, it looks so good. Don't be so hard on yourself about the blogging thing - all anybody can ever do is their best, and I definitely think that's what you're doing considering you're also a new mommy. Hang in there! xo

  6. What a great find! Every year I tell myself I need a faux leather jacket and I never do end up with one... this is the year, I swear!! Love the shades of gray; you can never go wrong with a monochromatic look!

  7. Perfect! I love that jacket - I have a great black one but the soft grey is so lovely!!
