Excuses, Excuses

I could totally bore you right now with some lame blah-ger excuse about life catching up to me, or something equally as lamesauce–but I won’t. Instead, I will bore you with the truth: HB (my resident photographer and future hubby) has been in absentia much of this month thanks to a rigorous rotation on Cardiothoracic Surgery, which is even tougher than it sounds.

That, combined with an equal–guilty-as-charged–tendency to hang around in my pajamas when I don’t have to dress up for things (like my bridal shower, here, or a gala) means I’m rather lacking on the outfit post scene lately.


…But if you’re in the Texas area and attending the 2nd annual Texas Style Council, I’d like to make it up to you by giving you a free hug. Mar 9-11th. While supplies last. Void where prohibited. Limit 3 per customer.

To explain the lame-ness of these photos: this was taken after my bridal shower by HB who was literally laying down on the couch. I have a rather annoying habit of not taking photos whenever I am at an event–of any kind. Some would say I live in the moment, but I say I’m just being a bad blogger.

    I think the fact that you maintain this amazing blog and do med school and all your other blogging duties is amazing in itself. Don’t be so hard on yourself, everyone deserves some down time every now and again. The dress is beautiful by the way!!

    You’re definitely allowed to have a few slow/off days… you’re very busy! However, it is nice to see new posts 🙂 This dress is gorgeous and the color really suits you.

    Awwww girl that must be ROUGH! I totally understand about having photographer issues…my parents/sibling never want to take pics for me! You have it harder, obviously, since he’s got surgery you have to worry about. The quality of the pictures are FINE. just that you have them is nice! Love the dress. And get well soon to “hubby”! :)Rory

    I totally am one of those people who forgets to take pictures and lives in the moment! It probably makes us bad bloggers, but better at life?! Haha.
    Also, that is such a pretty dress!

    “tendency to hang around in my pajamas” You are incredibly honest… A fashion blogger who is not always dressed up. I love it. I read your blogging info too. Thanks for all you do. xo

    I love the dress.. But, I absolutely love the shoes (I went to the previous picture of when you wore them). They are so cute. And you got them from forever, which makes it even better!

    You look fab in this dress!

    That dress is simply amazing! That is what made me write a comment. It fits you perfectly. The color and the print is just a feast to the eyes. I wish you took another shot with the shoes. This is from Zara? No wonder. I am so curious as to how much the dress is. Simple yet a headturner!

    HiI have just been lucky enough to find your lovely website. I had to comment on this outfit, I looked at it numerous times in Zara but could not decide whether to get it or not. Well, the way you are wearing it looks so lovely that I am going to see if Zara still have it. I love the way you have put a belt with it and black tights. Lovely.

    I LOVED this zara tulip dress! So darling! And I love it with the tights and gold sparkle belt. So cute. Please check out my blog:www.alittledashofdarling.com

    Thanks so so much! Xo
