A Monochromatic Approach


I'm almost considering a month long hiatus from the ol blog. Not because I don't like blogging or anything, just because I can't seem to find the motivation to take yet another batch of photos covered in snow (this is also why the number of pics I take has significantly decreased).  I am sick of the driveway or deck steps but I have nowhere else to go! On the weekend the manfriend decided he needed to go into the valley behind my house to find a specific piece of wood to whittle a cup out of...?... (I find it's best not to ask why anymore).  When he came back I asked him how deep the snow was back there hoping it was starting to melt down a bit. Much to my dismay it was up to his waist still and even higher than his 6 foot self in some of the drifts. BLAST! I really just want to be able to walk somewhere, anywhere. Anyways in an effort to break away from my normal boring pictures, I went for a more monochromatic approach mirroring how I feel right abouts now!!

Well that was a bit of a whiney paragraph...I'd take it back but you have already read it! Suckers...

dress / cardigan - thrifted
jacket - old navy
boots - payless
scarf - modcloth

  5. I feel your pain. It snowed another 6 inches here today and come on its March, shouldn't it be over by now? But I do hope you find the motivation to go out and keep posting what you love even though its frustrating. You look great regardless.

  6. Your photos are never boring. NEVER. But I canNOT imagine doing self-photos in the snow and can't blame you for lacking motivation. :/ I hope you don't go on hiatus but I understand!

  7. Great pictures, though I hear ya on the blogging thing. I don't have snow covered steps, but I'm so busy right now, I feel like the little blog is sorely neglected! :(

  12. I know how it feels to find motivation for outfit posts when it's crummy outside and winter seems never-ending. I really enjoy your indoor pics actually, so maybe you can do more of those for the time being...?

  17. I admire your dedication and all the hard work you put in this blog. It really shows. But I totally understand your frustrations too.
    Life has gotten a little hectic for me. And the next 2 months are gonna be crazy, I am writing my 100 pg thesis.
    Needless to say, your posts always bring a little joy to my life. Even if they are monochromatic and full of snow:)

    When I am not cursing at the computer or deep in thought writing all about blogs and their impact on fashion and industry.
    I will definitely stop by your hot little blogspot.
    Hopefully the joyful sun will finally make an appearance for ya!
