Back in Blue


Hey loves! Long time, no post. My bad. I unintentionally took a break from blogging last month. I was in a slump that was hard to break. I'm still dealing with the loss of my boyfriend's mom. I never mentioned it here, though I talked about it on my youtube channel. She passed away in November from pancreatic cancer. To say we were all devastated is an understatement. We were very close and I loved her so much. Since her passing, I sometimes find filming to be challenging and almost overwhelming. It's much easier to say nothing and pose for a picture. However this past month I could not muster an ounce of energy to take a proper outfit photo. It wasn't until the end of the month, after a talk with my boyfriend, that I felt like shooting again. Grieving is a bitch and a roller coaster of emotions. Forgive me for being inconsistent. I promise to do better for me, for you, and for Elaine.

She loved the whole blogging-youtube thing. She enjoyed watching my vlogs and seeing the outfits I posted on my facebook page. She would have liked this outfit, too. A classic fit and flare dress with a pop of pink. It's even available in her favorite color green. I take that as a little sign that she's still here watching over us and smiling from up above.

  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. My boyfriend passed away this January and I completely understand feeling no motivation to muster up a smile. I have found great comfort in seeing a grief counselor if you (or your boyfriend) is open to such a suggestion. His favorite color was green too, I find myself looking for more and more of it :)

    1. Kim... sending you so many *hugs* I am so sorry for the loss of your boyfriend. It put a smile on my face to know you are getting through this. I've done therapy in the past; I might need to go again. Thank you for the reminder.

      Cheers to the color green. <3
