Young People Style: ......

top: Target, cardigan: BCBG, skirt: handmade, boots: Soda, socks: F21 cuff: gift, cowl: c/o yarnplusyarn

shirt: Banana Republic, cords: Gap, shoes: Italy

Yesterday at work, my good friend/co-therapist asked if I was doing ok. She said I seemed a little "off."
I told her how I've honestly been feeling kinda bleh lately. 
Not super inspired and a little apathetic. 
Basically, my brain feels like mush.

I actually liked that she could sense my "off-ness." 
I never want to feel like I have to fake a happy face.
If I'm feeling bleh, I can accept the "bleh-ness" and keep moving forward. 
Feelings like apathy aren't the end of the world and I know it'll eventually pass.

But all this still makes thinking up post content feel more forced and like a chore than I want it to be. 
I don't ever want to force anything with my writing on this blog. 
There's no point in doing something if it's not genuine.

So, for now, "bleh" is where we'll leave it.

As I look at our weirdy style pics together, I can't help think about much I love Chas. 

The end.

I know that feeling of "bleh" (been battling it a lot the last few months), but I have found that faith, friends and family have been the best remedies! The genuine joy always swings back around!

Sending happy thoughts your way!

(and LOVE your outfit... Going to mimic it today for sure)

Rachel said...

You have beautiful eyes.


Jenna said...

Haha, the one of you on your hands and knees is cracking me up!

Your style is awesome, though.

Hope the bleh's go away soon.

Bon Bon said...

Bleh happens to the best of us. And you are one the best. Sooo...have some bleh moments/rest up. You are a true joy! xoxo

Lissa Chandler said...

amen to all of this, especially to "there's no point in doing something if it's not genuine."

Tania said...

I'm so lucky I found your blog (i have been a fan for a while now)! it feels like some sort of life manual, kind of like guidance. I'm feeling kind of "bleh" aswell and your post brought a smile to my "bleh" self, and for that I thank you.

I've been feeling the same way lately. I blame it on the awesome weather. All I want is to be outdoors. :) Beautiful pics!

Annton Beate Schmidt said...

"bleh" is perfectly fine and needed sometimes. besides from feeling like that, you look "wow". sooner or later the two will match again!

Samantha said...

Jessica Holly said...

I love the new blog design! You look so cute in these pics! Did you make that skirt yourself? Please impart your domestic wisdom.

Emma Frances said...

Your pictures are adorable. And you two always look so in love. I love it. :]

Erin said...

Love that mustard color on you! :) Not many can make that work...you do flawlessly! :) I think sometimes when we are feeling "bleh" is when some of our best ideas have time to simmer and come about!

Becca said...

hope the 'bleh' passes soon and you can be as sunny as your fab cardigan! :) x
