Hi guys! Sorry things have been a bit quiet around here lately! I'm now 1 month in to my new job and really loving it. I'm learning a lot, and love feeling like I'm working in an environment that I can actively contribute to. It's pretty great!

While the new job is awesome, I'm going through a phase where I'm really re-adjusting to have a good work/life/blog balance. I'm working 8 hours+ more a week than I did at my previous job, so I've lost a good chunk of the time I was previously able to devote to blogging. I still love having this blog and being a part of this amazing community, but I've had to cut back to maintain myself stay in a good place and not get too stressed out. I'm hoping that as I continue to adjust to my new schedule, I'll be able to find a bit more time to devote to sharing recipes and projects. I've always loved doing those posts, but they're admittedly quite time consuming. Thanks for bearing with me the last month while things have been so quiet around here!

Speaking of transitions, I always have such a hard time with my wardrobe when we get to this time of year. It's warmer, but not warm. It's sunny one minute, and raining the next. Does anyone else feel like when spring rolls around you have to be prepared for all sorts of weather on any given day? I'm finding that while I'm definitely bringing more summery pieces into my wardrobe, I still need to rock a pair of tights and keep some cozier pieces on hand. Which is to say, spring is still all about layering!

One of my favorite layering pieces right now is this gorgeous scarf from Conversation Pieces. I'm completely in love with the color and pattern and am finding that it's the perfect weight to keep me cozy, without being overwhelmingly hot like a lot of my winter scarves. It's all about good layering pieces!

Weekend-wise, things were relatively quiet. Friday night I ran some errands and caught up on Scandal (OMG!!!!!!), Saturday I had breakfast and did some shopping with my friend, Michele, and then had dinner and drinks with my friend Levi, later on. Sunday, I honestly lazed in bed with the cats longer than I care to admit, before doing some last minute tidying up and cooking. It was a pretty low-key weekend, but it was nice to recharge.

Today it's supposed to be in the 70s (!!!) so I'm hoping I'll get to spend some time outside even though I'll be working all day.

How was your weekend? Did you get up to anything fun?

XOXO

    1. Thank you so much, Sofie! You're the best. We had a nice sunny, warm day in Seattle today and I started to feel a bit more motivated. Hopefully as we get on to summer I'll have all the energy in the world!

  5. That scarf and dress look great together. I know what you mean about trying to fit blogging in with work and having a life. I am having the same problems myself at the moment. All we can do is try our best.

    1. Why thank you! Honestly, I feel like I know very little about hair and makeup, but since I'm getting some requests, I might do some tutorials soon! I figure if I can do it then anyone can, so maybe it would be fun to share!

  11. I am right there with you on feeling like I have to dress for all sorts of weather! I've also been really uninspired lately. I've got to try harder to get dressed every day, or I end up spending all day in my yoga pants and sports bra, haha!
    This outfit is so perfect for the transitional weather, though! I love that scarf, and the color of your dress! You are SO pretty!
    I'm so glad to hear you're loving your new job! It's the best when you find work that you like.
