A Pleasant Pause

jennadress2

To those living in the states, I hope you're having a wonderful long weekend.  This weekend has already been crazy!  With a bridal shower and a baby shower it was busy enough.  But Kevin and I have been packing and slowly moving our belongings into our new home.  Who knew so much stuff could be packed into a two bedroom apartment?  
 
Anyway, I'm kind of sad that I have to say this but I'll be taking a little break from blogging for awhile.  While I will still have posts going up (I like to plan far ahead), I won't have the time to interact with you like I normally do.  Sometimes life gets in the way and you have to take a little time off to get everything straight.  I will still have fun guest posts and outfit posts so make sure to check out what I have planned while I'm gone.

Dress- swap with Jenna
Cardigan- Forever 21
Shoes- Forever 21
Bracelet- Betsey Johnson
Necklace- Forever 21

Jenna of Smitten let me borrow this dress not too long ago.  It was an obvious choice for me because it's lace and purple, two of my favorite things.  I actually styled it a few times, but I think taking the more casual route was my favorite.  I added a printed cardigan and some embellished flats to make it casual but still interesting.  If you'd like to see how Jenna styled it, click HERE.

Hope you're enjoying the long weekend!

  3. Perfect for you.

    I will miss you when you're gone but understand that moving is loads of work and leaves little time for much else.

    Have a great weekend ( we had ours last weekend)

    bisous

    It's totally understandable that you'd need to take a break with that much stuff going on! It's necessary just to relax and reboot sometimes :)

  23. Sorry to hear you're taking a break, but I've just been to a move and I know how stressful it can be. I also took a couple days break from the blogging, just to completely focus on the things going on offline.

    Look forward to your scheduled posts!

    I also really like your outfit here, it suits you so well! That cardi is really, really cute.

    Have a great day,
    -Kati

  38. Girl, I know it! Movign and getting a new job, my blog comments folder is scaring me! Good luck!

    Also, totally thought this said 'to be living in the states' like you envied people in the us because you moved somewhere else. i had to read it 3 times for no reason to understand. and I love this cardigan and dress together - your command of the color purple has me smitten (and the ability to wear a purple cardigan in honor of your for the first time ever)
