a hard-hat ego that's never gonna bruise


shirt: thrift -- skirt: hand-me-down from Kendra, American Apparel -- belt: thrift -- shoes: Seychelles




Obsessed with these beautiful shoes I got 50% off from Piperlime. Sooooo comfy (for five inch heels, that is) and cute!

While I was still in school, I was convinced that I would have TONS of time and energy to blog (and read blogs) over the summer, but it hasn't quite turned out like that. True, I'm free when I get home from work--no homework, no nothing--but I also spend eight hours in front of the computer at work, so sitting in front of the computer for another two hours just is not appealing. I also don't know if I mentioned this, but I leave the house at 7:55 a.m. each morning and don't get back until 7:25 p.m. As you can imagine, those hours limit my free time. So. I have all these ideas of blog posts I want to do, have all of these half-written posts chillin' in my Blogger queue, waiting. But what's the rush, eh? I've been thinking about long-term blogging plans, and, to be honest, I can't really imagine wanting to continue blogging forever. Honestly, I expected to lose interest a few months in. And that was almost a year ago now (!). Do you plan or anticipate to keep blogging forever?

Oh, P.S., meet my brand-new boyfriend, Bobby!

And he has eyeballs (pretty ones!) and smiles a lot, I promise. I had to coach him on how to make a too-cool-for-school face. He seems to have risen to the challenge admirably though, I think :D

Today's title comes from the awesome condemnation/challenge of a love song "Turn It My Way" by the Halo Benders, side project of Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening) and Doug Martsch (Built to Spill). Awesome band.

it's completely understandable that you would not exactly want to blog after the amount of work you do as it is on the computer... however, to answer your question... i don't know if i exactly anticipate blogging FOREVER, but it's something i love to do and will continue doing until i don't like it anymore.

HEY BOBBY! nice to meet you, by the way.

very cute shoes, sophie!

Daw' I just love those heart shaped glasses! I've been searching for a similar pair forever. And have I ever told you that you're the best pattern mixer I ever did see...?

Your shoes are just great! Love the color and everything. You and Bobby in your glasses are just too cute. You look adorable together. I really like your blog Sophie, but I totally understand that burnt out feeling. Don't do it if it's not fun anymore. It's your life! :D
XOXO

Aw you & Bobby are supa cute! Also, I love love love that shirt.

I feel like a lot of people are getting drained from blogging- it does take up a lot of time. I say that if you're not enjoying it, you might as well stop! I love reading your blog but you shouldn't have to do it if you don't want to. I'm going to continue mine but I've decided to feel a lot less pressure about posting.

your shoes are hot, your boyfriend is a babe and I still love your blog even if you only post sporadically!

Laurel said...

I agree with Annebeth on all fronts. That, and the Halo Benders. I think "Don't Touch my Bikini" is a perennial summer classic.

I love the retro vibes of your outfit, the t-shirt is amazing :)
That's a handsome boy you found! I notice you have a thing for 'dark' men? ;)
As for the irregular posting... I thought exactly the same thing while I was studying... and I didn't live up to my own expectations this summer!

i definitely understand not wanting to blog. i stopped unexpectedly for like, 2 months and enjoyed not doing it, but i started to miss it. i really like reading about people's lives more than anything. anyway, i'll miss you if you stop blogging, but it's definitely understandable.

anyway, i love this outfit. you have such good thrifting luck, i am eternally jealous. ESPECIALLY that hot pink blazer in your other post. i love it!
