Excuses, excuses.


Target sweater and skirt; Walmart tights; Kohl's boots; Pacsun necklace (gift)

Oh hey look, an outfit post. I feel like it's been a really long time. Aaaaand I'm sorry.

I really intended for this to be an easy semester. But for some reason I signed up for three pretty time-consuming classes, have a 20 hour a week graduate assistantship, and I'm president of my honor society. This all equals a lot of time spent at school, and not much time to spend reading blogs and making outfit posts. But I'm working on it, because I need that me time, or else I'll probably go crazy.

On a lighter note, I'm so excited for all of you who are doing the 30 for 30 in February! I really struggled with deciding whether or not to do it this time around, and ultimately decided against it for a few reasons.
  1. It's been a little less than two months since I participated in the last one, and I still feel like I haven't 100% reacquainted myself with the rest of my closet. It's too soon.

  2. Southern New Mexico doesn't really have well defined seasons. November through March means 50-70 degree temperatures for the most part. I'd love for my next 30 for 30 to be a warm-weather one.

  3. I'm also hesitant to commit to daily outfit posts until I figure out how to better work blogging in my schedule this semester.
Excuses, excuses, I know. I am, however, going to participate in the No-Shopping ban. My wallet and my bulging closet needs it.


  1. Busy bee this semester! Like you said, there's always the spring 30x30. Good luck with school and don't work too hard!

  2. Yes, you DO sound really busy, don't stress yourself out!

    I really like the simplicity of this outfit, and especially love the necklace. so cute :)

    Good luck on the shopping ban though!

  3. I'm passing on this 30 for 30 as well. I'm worried about the added stress on top of wedding planning. Good luck with the shopping ban though! I might have to institute that for myself as well.

  4. Well if you ask me, you've signed up for the hardest part of the challenge! :) Awesome skirt Lydia, and I hope the balancing act gets easier this term!

  5. Wow you sound like a busy gal! I hope you take some time to relax! I love this chambray skirt and that gorgeous necklace!

  6. So glad to see you back! Sorry to hear you aren't doing the 30 for 30, but it sounds like the wise choice. And WAY TO GO on subjecting yourself to the no-shopping ban. You're adorable and impressive.

    Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

  7. I LOVE that skirt! And I can't believe we're already doing our second remixes!
    I just tagged you, so better start thinking!

  8. haha yeah, i haven't been shopping much lately, either. oh well! and i agree, blogging is good "me" time

  9. I love your outfit, especially that skirt, it's so cute! Can't wait to read more of your blog and hope your semester gets a little easier!

  10. Ahhh love the skirt! No-shopping ban is definitely the hardest part. (This is uber-late, but I've been away from the blogosphere for a while: LOVE YOUR HAIR!!!)

  11. You look way cuter than I did when I was crazy busy at school - hope you're enjoying your last semester, and that you get a chance to check out my blog because I tagged you as a stylish and versatile blogger - check it out and see what you have to do!
