So I have to apologize, mostly to myself but some to anyone who's noticed. I've been in a blogging slump these last few months and I just haven't been able to shake off these blogging blues (cue the acoustic guitar and raspy voice). I've been ignoring my Etsy stores too even though I have been collecting cute vintage clothes and making jewelry again. Still, I somehow could not get myself motivated. But now that warm weather is here and the trees have finally started to bloom, I feel refreshed!
So here's to getting my lazy butt back in gear and not being a disappointment of a blogger anymore!
As a first step, I updated the Etsy shop! Okay, I won't lie to you. I added two new items. But after a hiatus of months, this is a big step for me. One of the items in the shop right now is this skirt in today's outfit post!
A note on long skirts: people always say to me, "You're lucky you're tall because you can wear long skirts and not look dumpy." Well, that's not totally true. Certain long skirts look dumpy on me too. The trick is finding that sweet spot for your body type and working it. I'm pretty bottom heavy, so in reality midi skirts don't suit me that well either if I'm not wearing heels. But if I can show off a little more leg (ooo-la-la), then it works much better. And I am all for everyone wearing maxi dresses and skirts. I think they just look beautiful whether you're short or tall! But if you are short, I might have to do a tutorial on some easy hemming techniques. No one likes stepping on their own dress, I get that.
