A Big Blank

Blazer: Old Navy (old) | Top: Forever 21 | Pants: Target (in store only) |Necklace: Jewel IQ | Flats: Payless (old)

Okay, what I am about to say is probably a blogger faux pas, but oh well.

I have nothing really to say today. Is that bad? Let me answer that. YES! I am a blogger and I have drawn a complete blank. This doesn't typically happen to me. My mind goes ninety miles an hour all the time. I always have something to say, usually too much to say.

Right now all my thoughts, ideas and words are gone. Vanished. I am tired of talking about the weather. It's hot. Then it's cold. Then hot again. My weekend wasn't the grandest. Hence, the no "weekend recap" post. I am feeling a little stressed, but I don't want to gripe and be a Debbie Downer. 

I am even drawing a big blank on what to say about my outfit. All that comes to mind is that I REALLY liked this look, but for some reason it didn't photograph well. Does this happen to other bloggers too? You get really excited about what you put together and then it comes across as mediocre blah and nothing really to converse about? 

Well, there you have it, folks, a writer's block post. Please, come back tomorrow. I plan to get a good night's rest and think of something clever to say tomorrow. I won't be this lame again. Hopefully.

Aw, I'm sure your writer's block will be gone soon! I LOVE the pattern mixing and think it looks great, but I do know what you mean about outfits not looking good when you take pics of them...SO annoying! Happy Monday Shanna :)

I have wanted a striped shirt for so long but I haven't found one that fits me the way I want it to so I'm still looking ^^
Love this outfit, looks lovely on you xx

A J said...

I'm sorry you're feeling "bla." Hopefully you have a good day today and are back to your normal self tomorrow.

I think the outfit photographed well! At least you had someone take the pictures for you with a good camera. I am still taking self pics in a mirror so basically everything photographs poorly!

That happens to me a lot! Have a great week!

TheTinyHeart said...

Super cute pattern mixing, Shanna! This happens to me all the time that I get writers' block, especially if nothing particularly interesting happened that week. I think it's just part of being a blogger and it happens to everyone!

Katie said...

definitely okay to not have something to say! but you still managed to write a post about it which is impressive. :) LOVE your pants - just bought some polka dot pants this weekend!!!

Melanie Montgomery said...

I saw those pants the other day and thought, those are cute but how would I wear them? Now I know!

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

None of the Targets in town have those pants :(

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Aww, writer's block happens to everyone from time to time. No worries, pretty lady. :)

Sarah said...

It happens to the best of us!! No worries! You still look cute :)

Melody said...

I hate it when an outfit you really like doesn't photograph well. But I think you look great! The pattern mixing is awesome!

Penniless Socialite said...

I hate it when I have a great outfit and nothing to say about it. I guess it's better to have gorgeous pictures and no words than a crappy outfit and no words as well. Love those pants. I want to go get them right now...but I have to work on a holiday.

This happens to me a lot! If I don't really have anything to say then I do a super short post. I feel like it evens itself out. And sometimes I wear an outfit like I feel like a million bucks in and then I get photographed and I'm like that is the worst outfit ever. Go figure! Love the stripes and dots!

Morgan | xoxo, me said...

Hahaha. This happens to all of us. It's happened to me a lot lately and I don't know why! I guess we just can't be exciting and full of thoughts every day :) Regardless, I like your outfit and the print mixing!

pretty little things said...

No worries, we all have writer's block! And I totally love this outfit, I think it looks great! But I know what you mean about outfits that come out differently than what they look like in real life. Hope you are having a great day! :)

What's wrong my little pumpkin? Do you need a huggy wuggy

Courtney said...

I've been that way lately too...love the pattern mixing, you look cute in everything!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I do that all the time!! I put something together and think it is awesome and it just looks blah on the blog. Then the things that were boring in person turn out well on the blog. I never know anymore!

I totally can relate on both fronts - sometimes I think an outfit looks so great in my head, then I see the pics and I'm disappointed. But I think your outfit is cute! And I understand about the writer's block... happens to me a lot!

Stesha said...

you are too cute! sometimes I have outfits and then I see the photos and blah! I am not sure what that happens. Lighting maybe or mood not sure. love you though and you look awesome!!

xxS

Makaila said...

Shanna, seriously, the weirdest thing is the outfits I love photograph awful, and the ones I'm so-so on photograph awesome. What gives!? I love this on you. And if I can lose 10lbs, I'm going to copy those polka pants ;)

"this day too shall pass", "don't worry your pretty little head" ;) loves ya!

meghan said...

I like the look. I think it even photographs well. And yes, I have it happen quite often that I can't think of something to say. But I think you did well coming up with stuff to say! :)

Ashley said...

You could never be lame! Never!!

That happens to me all the time...I think "this is super cute" and then look at the pictures and think "oh no. no."

But I like this outfit (and think it photographed well) :-)

Emily said...

We all have those days. But sometimes the best posts are the honest "I have nothing to say" posts because they show just how awesome your personality is!

And yes, I have outfits like that all the time. I think they are great, then I take pics and get frustrated. Oh well. We all have those days!

I love you girl! Love love love the outfit! I forgot to tell you I tried on a pair of floral pants the other day, they did NOT work!!! Hope Sunday was better than Saturday! xoxo

Kelly { Messy.Dirty.Hair.} said...

Seriously only you could pull off 2 different prints at once. You always make it work. I think the pictures turned out great! I totally have days where I feel blah & have nothing to say. It's hard being a woman, nonetheless a mother. You'll be back! It's funny my mind is always racing...wish we could control when to shut it off! Love u gf!

still being [molly] said...

that totally happens to all of us, sometimes!! :) no worries girl! you look AMAZING! i think it photographed PERFECTLY!

I struggle with what to say pretty often and resort to talking about my outfits. Love this velvet blazer with the stripes and polka dots. So much texture!

Sylvia said...

I totally love this outfit! Love the mix of patterns and the fit. Great look!

Chris said...

Oh friend... I have nothing to say most of the time. I guess that makes me the worst kind of blogger.

Head to Toe Chic said...

Love the stripes and polka dots! I saw those pants in Target yesterday and thought of you :) Writer's block happens to me all the time. so lame.

Janna Renee said...

Don't be stressed pretty lady! We all understand, and I'm sure everyone can relate. Just do what you need to feel better ;)

JKT said...

I know what you mean about having nothing to say...it happens to me too. I'll be thinking a gazillion things and then go to write and I've got nothing. I always enjoy your post no matter what you have to say, though :) Loving this outfit and I think you pull it off well, of course!

Rebecca @ Mommy in Heels said...

Gorgeous outfit! The pants are awesome!! Have a great day :)

Jamie said...

2 things:

and 2 - We all get writer's block - so don't worry! :)
