Writer's Block (OOTD)

I'm a bit of a chatty-Cathy. I almost always have something to talk about, and usually, that translates pretty easily to writing for me. But for some reason, today, I've got nothing. Seriously. I've been staring at this screen, on and off, for the past six hours.

*Waiting for inspiration*

...

*Still waiting*

So sorry, everyone! Hopefully tomorrow, yeah? At least I have an OOTD for you today:





 Sweater: Dog Trot Cardigan, Anthropologie (these would work: here and here)
Top: Daring Dart Blouse, Anthropologie (similar here and here)
Skirt: Banana Republic (similar here and here, and oh how pretty is this: here)
Hosiery: Nordstrom Fashion Hosiery (similar here and here)
Shoes: Rensselaer T-straps, Anthropologie (similar here and here)
Belt: J. Crew skinny belt (similar here and here)

How charming and perfect is this umbrella necklace, made by Sandra of Miss November Studio? The beads, she wrote, are like drops of water, sliding down the chain towards the umbrella. I just love that!

  2. Happens to me too, and believe me I've never been accused of having nothing to say IRL ;) LOVE this cute outfit, for some reason I'm thinking you look like an adorable professor - must be the cozy sweater. Those shoes are darling on you!

  3. Sometimes I get a little stressed blogging b/c I don't have anything to say... and then I start to ramble.

    Everytime I see this cardigan it makes me smile!

  8. Don't worry: you're not the only one! Throughout the day I have all these great ideas of what to talk about and then when it actually comes to writing the post: poof!
    You make up for it by looking extra adorable today!

  9. I'm so jealous that you can go outside without tights on and that you got this cardigan!

    If I weren't doing the 30 for 30 challenge that necklace would be mine right now! Maybe a birthday present from the hubby?

  10. I love your necklace, Carol. As for Writer's Block... there is a lot of pressure to say something, but I think a blog can rely on its photos and not have to worry too much about every once in a while.

  12. Yay! I'm so glad your necklace arrived safely, and I'm pleased you love it!

    I just sold one of them on Etsy last night, I woke up with a sale in my inbox! Did you have anything to do with that? Hmmmm....

    You look fantastic!
    Love Sandra

  13. What a great outfit! I really like the blouse, and even though your skirt is from Banana Republic, it totally looks like it's from Anthropologie. Even when you have writer's block you write a good post. Love the necklace too!
