We took these photos right before work, like right before I got in the car to drive to work, hence the pretty view of my neighbor's houses and cars. I am back in tights and it feels so good! Now that it's been raining, it's starting to feel and look like Fall around here. Leaves are littering the streets now, and greens are slowly turning more and more yellow. I can't wait until it gets a littler colder when I can bring out my beanies and scarves again. I think I can be a Fall person after all!
I went shopping this weekend, finally. It felt so liberating! I took my best friend to Zara for the first time and found this amazing belt. For some reason, it reminds me of Power Rangers. I must be hanging around kids too long since I almost want to grab the buckle and shout "It's morphin' time." It's definitely a nice change from my usual bow belts. In fact I'm not even wearing a single bow today, which is strange because last night I made a massive order of bows on Etsy. I don't know what prompted me to do that especially since I have a great collection of bows already. I think it was because I was browsing through Bonnie's blog, Flashes of Style, and I realized I didn't have a good white bow so I immediately went to Etsy to find one and I ended up purchasing 5 bows. I can't wait to get them! This is my new skirt from Gap that I got a few weeks ago. I can't believe this is my first striped skirt. You'll definitely be seeing this skirt and my new belt a bunch from now on.
I have been contemplating the future of Transient Withdrawal these past few days. After the Chictopia 10 conference, I know I didn't want to brand myself. I don't need a third job right now, but where do I go from here? I'm really not sure my style can develop anymore, and I'm not really sure I want it to develop anymore. I know what I like, and I know what looks good on me. Despite my current attempt to stay away from stripes, I know I'll always go back to it. It's just what I'm most comfortable in, and I think it's what I look best in. I also know I won't stray much from my current outfits. Do I continue with this blog even though it has fulfilled one of its purposes of helping me find my style? I have made so many amazing friends through this blog, but I know these friendships will continue whether I upkeep this blog or not. Don't get me wrong, I love this blog and I am thrilled that it's getting bigger. I just don't know where to go from here. For some reason, the quote "With great power comes great responsibility" from Spider Man popped into my head (I really am spending too much time with kids...). No matter how cheesy that quote is, it has some truth in it: With my blog getting bigger and bigger, I want to be going in a good direction because more people will be reading it. I'm just not sure which way that direction is...
Until next post,
