I'm still here

Hi guys! I'm still alive.

I promise I had planned on taking outfit photos at work, but I had all-day meetings on Friday, and then a long shopping trip during my lunch break on Monday (mostly just me taking too long at J. Crew trying to decide between the pink or toffee cotton bell skirt) left me no time to take pictures. Then, my son got sick, and I took Tuesday and today (Thursday) off to stay home with him (I already had Wednesday off), and I've just been wearing ugly pajamas all day long... ugly pajamas that I have to keep changing because my son is barf vader. Not exactly blog material.

And then on top of that, I'm just feeling a little insensitive for posting about silly stuff like what I'm wearing when there's thousands of people in Japan who have lost loved ones, their homes and everything they own. I can't even fathom what they are going through, as I sit here and complain about getting baby puke on my clothes.

Since I don't have any outfits to post, I thought I'd do a "What I want" kind of post. I thought I was doing pretty good about only shopping for stuff on my list, but then I looked back at the purchases I made this month so far, and um.. I haven't been that good. So if my budget was not an issue, these would be mine. RIGHT NOW.


1. Target Mossimo messenger bag in olive (34.99) - because I can't afford the Proenza Schouler version
2. UO suede pump in nude ($49) - as much as I want the red Kendi version, I think the nude would be a better option for me.
3. J. Crew I heart chambray shirt ($98) - how cute is the heart pocket? GIMME.
4. Express pleated stretch cotton shorts ($44.90) - I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of black shorts. These are pretty darn close.
5. Old Navy Skinny flared trouser jeans ($34.50) - I want a pair of super flared trouser jeans and this Old Navy pair looks promising. I just need to try them on... and then wait for their super clearance sale.

What's on your list right now?

PS. I did a little blog makeover, I was getting sick of my old layout. And I have a new blog just for my blog design clients here. I'm not finished with everything yet, so please be patient! thanks a million.

  4. LOVE all of your pics. Glad you're alive... was wondering. And I'm so sorry munchky man isn't feeling well. I can't blame us for giving it to him, because we're like thousands of miles from you. But if we were neighbors, I'd totally understand if you didn't want to talk to us for a while. S was barfelina last week.

  5. Those pumps are so great! I've been admiring Kendi's forever but I didn't know about the nude. NEED those. And wide leg pants - yes please! Can't wait to see you style those.

  7. I'm up right now with a teething baby so I kinda feel your pain. I say kinda because I don't have barf involved. :)

    I've been stalking a Land's End Canvas canvas bag online for a while but that Target version is a lot less and pretty similar. I'm going to check it out tomorrow when I return some things.

    I had no idea those UO shoes came in nude...they are gorgeous. I wanted them before, but I kind of want them even more, now.

    And I LOVE the new blog design! Sorry it took me so long to finally see it :)

  19. Ooooh that bag looks exactly like the PS1...just $1960 cheaper! I think it just might be worth making the hour long trip out to Target...

    Fantastic wishlist!
