Irarely dress bohemian or free-form (last I can remember was this outfit) but I need to write myself a little note of encouragement – it feels so darn good (read: comfortable) dressing this way!

Life has been a mess for me lately: in the past month I’ve been working in the ICU (first month of residency, eek), I came down with the flu (summer flu’s are even worse than winter ones), my debit card identity got stolen, I moved into my first house, my iPhone broke, we have been living without a refrigerator, washer, or dryer, and my grandmother passed away. Needless to say July 2012 will go down in the history books as a terrible, no-good month for me all-around. I’m so happy with our house, of course, but it is going to take some time unpacking and decorating. We have our work cut out for us, as they say.

Please bear with me a little bit longer – I know posts have been few and far between but I will try my best to squeeze out a post here and there – because let’s face it, I miss you guys!

    Oh no, sounds like it’s been a terrible month for you! Hope you’re hanging in there OK. If it makes you feel any better, this outfit is fabulous! 🙂

  4. Hugs to you with the loss of your grandma. My grandparents were very dear to me so I know you must be feeling this loss! Hope August is better!
    Loved the outfit–gotta say I would have never ever put that combination together…but I still loved it. (the shorts with the tights was just brilliant)

    I just bought a Princess Vera Wang top too…weird how its for teenagers but Vera Wang just knows how to make her fashions swing!

    So sorry to hear about your grandmother and your debit card being stolen. Hopefully August is a better month for you and things look up. Owning a home is the most rewarding experience ever and while you may want everything set up and decorated right away the joy comes with being able to take your time and get things exactly the way you want them.

    So sorry that July hasn’t been the best for you. But congrats on the new house! Love your outfit here, as well. 🙂

    I hope August will be a better month! How’s the residency going btw?My sis just finished med school (and is a doctor now, yay!) but she decided to work on her PhD in a lab instead of doing clinical work (my brother is a surgeon at one of the biggest hospitals in Prague but is way over worked etc. so it didn’t look very tempting). I’d love to hear about what it’s like being a doctor in the States…

    **As the only non-doctor of the family I’m the black sheep.

    Hey Kristina,
    Wishing you comforting thoughts and prayers as you and your family deal with your grandmother’s passing. I’ve been there twice, and I know it takes a lot of time for it feel less hurtful. Good luck with your residency. Hope you feel better from being sick, and hope you and your new hubby can take time to really enjoy the fun parts of decorating your new house and making it your own! May August be a much better month-more pretty, shiny, and sparkly!! 🙂

    I’m so sorry to hear about your grandmother; my prayers are with you and your family! I definitley understand how life can get CRAZY sometimes! It ‘s great to have you back! 😉 I love this look – very “casual chic”. Bohemian style is not something I myself have tried, but I have always wanted to! If miss Wang has a new collection at Kohl’s in this bohemian vibe, I most defintley will have to try it out! 🙂

    LOVE THIS OUTFIT. Even though, boho isn’t your favorite, this works wonders for you! Good luck with everything going on this month. When I started my blog, yours was the one that I made a ton of notes on because I absolutely love it. Its amazing how much you do and have such an awesome blog. Just wanted to say thank you for inspiring me, you are awesome!

    I am so sorry that you have had such a rough month. Life seems to always happen that way. My condolences on the loss of your grandmother. I am sure that was especially rough. Hoping for sunnier days ahead.
