I’ve been so busy with work and fun time and haven’t had a lot of time or energy for blogging. For me, blogging has ups and downs. When I start to feel blogger burnout, I try to step back a bit instead of forcing myself to write without passion. While I take my blogging seriously, I never want it to feel like just another “job.”

It’s kind of nice to be living life though, having fun playing board games with the kids and getting ready for Halloween, going to fashion shows, and spending a little time with the man. Sometimes, I get so bogged down between my paid job and blogging that I let myself lose focus on actually living!!
I’m feeling a little more refreshed and have several posts planned, including today’s outfit post featuring yesterday’s work look with a day to night twist.

Here, a statement making necklace helps bring together a solid pencil skirt, trapeze top, and blazer.
I love minimalist looks, but I would be bored by this outfit if it weren’t for the necklace and textured bag. For me, basic pieces usually require a little something extra to help make a look feel interesting and more unique.

While this outfit felt polished and professional for work, I would swap out the black blazer for a moto jacket for a super quick day to night switch.
|Jacket: Torrid (Available here)|
FYI, I normally wear a size 0 at Torrid and sized up to a 1 in this jacket to get a more relaxed and slightly longer fit in this cropped jacket.
I plan on getting the sleeves shortened soon, but otherwise, I’m happy with the fit.
