all this unhappiness

I wore this outfit in order to feel like I'd gotten dressed, after a particularly annoying day of thesis-writing. I know I wear this shirt too much on the blog... but I wear it even more in real life!

Anyway, this is auto-posting, I'm out of town and away from the internet for a few days. I wanted to apologize for being the world's worst blog-friend recently, for not replying to comments or emails, and generally being one of those bloggers. I'm up to my neck in thesis--the deadline's coming up really soon--and quite stressed and unhappy about some other things, and really happy about some others, like hanging out with my family again. That first picture is not at all representative of life at the moment I'm afraid... I really will try to be better soon. An enormous thank you to those of you still out there!

LOVE your hair! You should make a tutorial :)

Marisa Noelle said...

That shirt is quite perfect so I could see why you would be wanting to wear is a lot...as I tend to obsess over the things I love - I'm always doing the same thing with my favorite pieces. Super cute photos...loving that first pic especially. Best wishes on your thesis...sounds grueling, but I'm sure very rewarding once finished.

Faff said...

Ah but when you love somehting and it looks cute you can totally wear it all the time! Good luck with the work :)

gee said...

Maria Elyse said...

If I had that shirt, I would wear it all the time too! It's so cute. And I love the shorts with those shoes. This is one of my favorite outfits that I've seen lately...just a really great casual summer look.

Ah... I think we've all been there. I was not in the best of forms towards the end of my teaching practice when I also had massive assignments to do.
I just tried to remember that I can't do everything at once and, at the end of the day, our education is always a top priority.

I am SUCH a teacher sometimes... :P

Anyway, I really like the shirt on you so feel free to continue wearing it! There will be no complaints here =]

We're still here and I think you'll find us a very understanding group. :-) Knock that thesis out of the park so you can come play in blogland again. In the meantime (if you have a few moments), you can see what I''ve been playing with in my closet: http://carriesbusynothings.blogspot.com/2011/08/dressing-outside-my-box.html

And yes, I LOVE your hair in these photos! How???

Amber Blue Bird said...

best of luck with the thesis. When you finish that baby up you should do a tutorial on how you got your hair to look so awesome.

You my dear are a good blog friend. And that shirt is perfect. You could wear it every day I would never get bored (well... almost!).

So rad. I love these relaxed photos of you, Good luck with your thesis. What exactly are you doing it on? (sorry if you already went over this haha)

Shybiker said...

I love that shirt. I love those shorts. Your hair is adorable. Can I be you, please?

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) said...

I love the 1960s flair to both your hair & outfit-- I also dig the way you tied up your blouse, I've been meaning to style a shirt in a similar way.

Hopefully you're relaxing now after all your thesis writing, I remember being crazed back in graduate school!

CessOviedo said...

I can only imagine how difficult must be to right your thesis, and to think that'd be me next year, think I'll need cute shorts and pretty brogues like yours, love easy and comfy look!

Monique said...

I love that you keep wearing this shirt because it's a great shirt and should be worn often since it makes you so happy. Good luck with your thesis and enjoy your family time lady!

Jennyboo said...

Thesis writing can be the most frustrating experience! But I am sure that the writing will come together quite nicely, even if there is some screaming and yelling along the way. I hope you enjoyed your time with your family. And you are looking ever so lovely as always! xx

Jul said...

Great casual outfit :) I love this shirt, looks so versatile!
Good luck with your thesis writing...deadlines are so stressful -_- right now I'm studying for some exams I'll have in september (and then I'm going to write my thesis) so I can understand what you're feeling.

whitemaskgirl said...

I know the feeling of being all stressed out over deadlines. It will be better when it is over and you can relax again. Wish you luck anyway!

That shirt btw, is one of the few shirts I have seen that works all the time. Like it was made for you. :)

Rebecca said...

Good luck thesis writing. Can't imagine how stressful that can be, it'll all work out though. You look very 1940s casual in this outfit, looks great and carefree.

Diana said...

dusanabotswana said...

Well you certainly have a good excuse to MIA for a bit! Good luck on finishing your thesis, it sounds so interesting. I'd love to read it if you'll be publishing it anywhere (online maybe?) & even offer to give it a quick typo read over for you if you'd like (yep, can't say proofread, you got me on the "much ado" thing!).
Love your first picture, so cute! This shirt is great, I def don't think you wear it too much, but you know how I am w/ wearing my fav shirts on my blog... Love your hair too!

Cinnamon Wren said...

You look too cute! With your Bardot hair (nearly) you look very retro with the plaid and all!
I will also say good luck with your thesis!! All of us wishing will help you out i'm sure!! :p

Ashley/ MILK TEETHS said...

oh gosh, you dont have to apologize at all! and look at you being all sassy in that first photo. Happy thesis writing!!

Melis said...

i would wear this shirt all the time too! it's perfect on you :) also, if you need someone to copy edit your thesis, i'm game. :) i'm an editor on a lit mag, workin on my mfa in creative writing, and i've looked over theses and dissertations alike :)

Just a lazy morning said...

So lovely!
nice shoes:)
xoxo

Penny said...

I think even if everything else was perfect in life- the existence of a thesis writing can drive you crazy on its own!Seeing your family though can be an antidote :)
ps)I like this shirt- never tired of seeing it here ;)

Terri said...

Just keep telling yourself: "this too shall pass, this too shall pass"

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Those sunglasses. That shirt. Those shorts. Those shoes. Perfect!

I do hope your thesis hasn't frazzled your brain too much!

Stef / Diversions said...

The colours in that shirt are so great - I am not surprised it's a favourite of yours :)

I've been one of those bloggers as well over the past couple of weeks, all the best for your thesis finale!
