There comes a day in every bloggers life when we feel the need to write the dreaded apology post. You know, the one where we say how sorry we are that we’ve stopped posting, hit a dry spell, or have just been too busy to focus on the blog. I sigh when reading these kinds of posts. When another person chooses to share their life, style, interests or fashion sense with me all I can say is “thank you”. If they can’t do it for a while I am neither offended nor disappointed. “Its OK!” I want to say, and often do in the comments. We all have lives beyond our blog. If we didn’t our blogs wouldn’t be all that interesting.
So it’s funny that I feel such a deep need to say “sorry” for not having been very active on my blog recently. I’m not facing burn out, thank goodness. Time is the issue. There just isn’t enough of it to do everything I want and need to do. I also find the latter half of winter rather uninspiring. The golden glow of autumn and the sparkle of the holidays are in the past but the fresh possibilities of spring are still a few months in the future. That isn’t to say that my wardrobe isn’t a place of fun and styling possibilities. I’ve discovered some great thrift stores recently and it’s been getting rather crowded in my closet as a result. There are lots of new outfits and old favorites I’m dying to share.
Here’s an outfit I wear rather frequently. There are times when my mood needs revitalizing but I don’t have the energy or time to get creative in my closet. That’s when this asymmetrical skirt calls to me. I found it at “Clothes Heaven” and it’s one of the more unusual pieces in my wardrobe. It’s a wrap skirt with a flounce on one side and a zipper on the other. It looks best when worn with a simple black top. I added some color with my new blue clutch and a whole bunch of bracelets. It’s simple and easy outfit that’s never boring.
I read recently that the multi-bracelet trend is over and that now it’s all about big earrings. I’ve only recently started stacking bracelets on one arm and I’m not entirely sure I’m willing to give it up just yet. This is the problem with fashion, just when I decide I like something the professionals come along and tell me to move on to something else.

If you have a blog have you ever written an apology to your readers? How do you feel about them when you read them? What do you think of fashion this time of year?
