Alright, it did not rain today, but the day I took these photos it sure did! Dare I say that it has been a bit chilly the last week or so in LA? I better not be jinxing it! I’ve been cuddled up in sweaters and blankets for the past few days, soaking in the rain and gray skies. Let’s be clear: “chilly” in LA is anything under 70. I know, we suck. To be fair, I would rather have cold weather in the winter. That makes you hate me more, right?

Besides weather, other things that are currently making me happy: work possibilites, “Spring” cleaning, and our new apartment. Yes, we found a new apartment and it is impossibly adorable! We get the keys this weekend and will have a couple of weeks for the moving process. I have been spending too much time on Pinterest for decor inspiration; We are planning on starting over and really making this place a home.

What are your favorite home decor inspiration sites?

Apparently I don’t like looking directly into the camera! It must mean that I am becoming a real blogger, right? Just like having my jacket on my shoulders. What an annoying blogger habit, huh? Hey, I read forums, I know the snark surrounding bloggers. No one actally wears their jacket on their shoulders in real life, do they? Well, I do sometimes. Maybe not for a long period of time; possibly from the car to the door if it’s chilly. I get it, bloggers have some silly habits: jackets on shoulders, pretend walking, writing about their life like they crap roses and sunshine. I try not to commit any of those faux paus, but sometimes, it really is the best way to show off an outfit.

It’s all silly really. Who cares if someone takes a picture of an outfit on a day they didn’t actually wear it, kind of, sort of like this one. The one I stay away from is photoshop. Not only because I have no idea how to use photoshop, but because that’s just a lie; to your readers and yourself! I color my photos (on an iPhone app nonetheless, so cool, so professonal), but every little freckle is all me. It can be kind of hilarious to see how far some bloggers go. I don’t need to name names. It’s obvious enough. It’s also obvious it stems from deep self esteem issues. If you’re reading this: You. Are. Beautiful.

Does anyone else ready snarky blogger comments? Is it terrible that I do? It’s an addiction! I don’t chime in often because, really, there’s no reason to be mean to someone you don’t know for such supercifical reasons, but as a blogger sometimes I can take some advice from these readers, even if they aren’t talking about me specifically. That’s right, my blog isn’t cool enough to be talked about. Dude, I am all sorts of sick if I want my blog to be snarked on.

What are your favorite blogger faux paus?

Currently listening to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Outloud” single on repeat. This was the song for our first dance at the wedding and I often listen to it on repeat for an embarassing amount of time. It makes me smile to remember our first dance. It was perfect. We took two dance classes and did exactly zero planned steps. We probably did about 3 dips because it was the only move we knew.

I also already miss my husband and I’ve only been away for a day. Super sappy, right.

I am, however, enjoying the real Fall weather in Nor Cal. Definitely not where I wore this outfit. I would have froze!

Hey, look, I got dressed twice this week! Definitely winning!

One thing I like about LA is the opportunity to go to free movie screenings. I love going to the movies and when they are free, I love it more! The Mr and I went to see a screening of The Nest, the new Amy Pohler and Tina Fey movie coming out next year. It was really funny! But, other than that, mums the word because you sign a bunch of stuff and they would hunt me down and cut my head off if I said anything more.

Who has Halloween plans? I’m meeting with some friends at a local bar, but I’m not dressing up or probably even staying out passed midnight. Not for lacking of wanting to, I just have no imagination of DIY skills for a costume and it’s annoying repeating costumes several years in a row. Also, David doesn’t have a costume, so I decided to be myself so he can be himself! Also, I am such an old lady, but I think I was born an old lady so it’s not a huge surprise I am thinking about going to bed while everyone else is planning on going to some crazy parties. I work at 6 a.m. the next morning, and it’s damn hard to wake up that early on a weekend when no one else has to think of getting up for hours.

I’ve never been a huge Halloween person; I think because I am just looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas and Halloween tends to delay those holidays! I will call it here: next year, I will be a huge Halloween supporter! Now you have to hold me to that!

I will never be over sheer blouses or crop tops.

Also, we’re going apple picking this weekend and I am going to burst from excitment! It is the first official Autumn activity for us of the season, and I officially cannot be made fun of for listening to Christmas music once Halloween passes. Not that I haven’t already started, but I’m pretty sure it is more acceptable in November. Anyone else as crazy as I am?

Firstly, excuse the bitch face in every single one of these photos. I may not have been in the best mood when taking these pictures, and yet, I still did it. I almost waited a day, but then realized that if I waited a day, that day would most likely turn into a week, based off of my blogging track record as of late. I’m human. This means I am lazy and I procrastinate, even on doing something I love, and I have bad days.

I feel like maybe I’ve been having more bad days lately that good. Is post wedding depression a real thing? And not a real thing as in “It was the best day of my life, I want to relive it over and over again, I miss it so much!” (even though, YES), but as in, I have no idea what I am supposed to do now. I spent months immersed in this one very important, meaningful day and now it’s over. I don’t have a particularly stimulating day job, so it doesn’t keep me as distracted as I would like. I feel like I need another something to focus on, but I don’t feel the motivation I need to figure it out.

Has anyone experienced this feeling after the end of a life altering event or change?

I also may wear this outfit at least one a week, with or without the hat. It’s the easiest thing to throw on and look like I still paid attention when I got dressed. Honestly, this was the first time I put on makeup in about two weeks, maybe the third time I’ve been dressed in something other than pajamas or work out clothes. I work at home and now that I am full time, instead of part time, there is really no need for me to get dressed. I am definitely an instant pajama girl once I get home from anywhere, so you can imagine what working from home does! After work, I head to the gym, so pajamas and gym clothes have became my norm!

I need a kick in the butt for this rut I am in!

I am one of those crazy Christmas lovers, so I have no doubt that the holiday season will perk me right back up into my normal self! I have been perusing Pinterest for gift and DIY ideas for months now, and I am ready to begin to put them into action!

Not to worry, this will be my one and only depressing post. You have to choose to be happy and I am choosing to be happy to find something meaningful to focus on. Life isn’t all rainbows and butterflies as we would like it to be, and really, do you need another blog claiming that it is?

p.s. I am hoping I will be able to share wedding photos very soon! We have them all but we have SO many that we haven’t even had time to look at them all just yet!
