Look who's back!!!

I'm sorry, lovelies, if I haven't been on in a long time! I went on a week vacation to Seattle to get pampered and to visit some family too. Last week was my first time ever in Seattle, and I have to admit, I really really really liked the place! except for the rain.... Seriously now, how am I ever going to wear my suede shoes if it rains every stinking day? 

It's good to be back home though, even though it's equally cold here in the Midwest, and due to high water levels, my train was cancelled. -_- 

I've been slowly getting back to the groove of things. I cleaned a bit, worked out a bit, and read a bit. Lots of bits here and there got done. I am now also applying for jobs, so I got oodles of stuff on my plate, but I am glad to be back blogging! I've missed you all so much!

I am kinda cheating here since I wore this outfit to celebrate my defense...almost two weeks ago. I wanted something casual and comfy, but I didn't have lots of time to switch outfits. So, I just changed my shoes and threw this oversized tee and shorts combo in place of the dress I wore.  I promise I'll get back to the updating pictures bit soon. :)

Have you entered my giveaway yet? You still have ONE DAY to enter!!!


  1. How do you find the Hue tights to last? I don't think anyone near me stocks them and I see some online I like, but have this issue with all tights lasting -maybe- one wear (if that long)

  2. Welcome back fancy lady - I missed you!

So glad that you had a good time in Seattle and I think it is so funny that we fashion lovers would think about the rain not putting us in dreary mood BUT of how it would ruin our shoes!! LOL Thanks for your sweet comment friend! I love those army green shorts...need me some army green pants!! Kiah

  17. I am reallllyyyy jealous about your trip to Seattle. It's on my list of top places to visit. I think I would love the weather there because I'm a fan of that kind of climate.
    I never get to go anywhere, though, because my life is a sick joke.
    I kid.
    But really, I never travel. And it blows.
