What I’m Wearing
* Miguelina peach tank from GILTlast seen here
* Victoria’s Secret boyfriend v-neck sweater cut up the middle into a cardigan {yes this really works & you know this if you’re a long-time reader …it’s 85% silk & 15% cashmere and I sliced it from the v-neck down years ago and it hasn’t unraveled or frayed a bit since. I wash them in cold and sometime toss them in the dryer or line dry them. I say “them” because I’ve done it to 3 now. All with awesome results. I love the way they hang and clearly don’t need them for warmth or to button up but are perfect for work. …last seen here {I clearly wear this one the most …but here’s the navy one paired with a dress I just saw Eva Longoria wearing recently actually {and from when I used my iMac to shoot my photos & at work, hilarious!}
* White cutout/lace trim skirt …from a local Farmer’s Market a couple years ago. Tag says HiBiS Lace Works – Van Couver | Los Angeles …last seen here {wow, these old outfit posts are like a time machine. It takes a while to get you’re photos right …and I’m sure in another year, I’ll say the same about these}
* Vintage belt …I would have actually preferred this rad belt from ASOS {which I just bought} seen on Smile yesterday because I’m not 100% loving the one I’m wearing but it was the closest match
* L.A.M.B. studded sandals from GILT I absolutely love these heels but they are a bit high even for me …though if my ankle weren’t in need of a doctor’s visit, I’d be fine but since it’s so swollen, it’s hard for me to arch it right …I know, I know …I’m making doctor rounds
* Rachel Roy gold drop earrings …love these
* Tom Ford Sunglasses – Anouktom ford anouk sunglasses, cat eye sunglasses, brown sunglasses
* Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 bag
* Hair: waved {see video …no don’t, I need to make a new one} …and clipped with the perfect tiny hair clipsclose up here & later after I changed, lol
* Title : from Katy Perry “Who Am I Living For” …I obviously am addicted to Katy Perry’s new album. It’s really fantastic.

Of course as soon as I stepped outside to shoot a few outfit pics, the wind picked up and not only blew my hair directly into my lip gloss but puffed my blouse up like a loaf of baking bread. Awesome.

A word {or paragraph} about yesterdays post : I promised myself I would never apologize for my blog because well, it’s mine and if you aren’t interested then don’t come here :) BUT I do want to express a little sorry for my sad post yesterday. Sometimes it just hits like a ton of bricks and yes, I am lucky in so many ways and yes things could be worse and no I’d rather not blather on and on {for years} about how I can’t get pregnant but I do so again and again, thank you for listening. I’ve also noticed when I’m in that little baby funk that my DIYs seem to disappear. Funny thing, sadness, zapping me of my creativity & motivation. Bah I say! But I’ve got a few ideas that I’ll get to work on and share with you very soon ;) I’ve also been putting off a hair video for about a month now. Such a procrastinator ;)

Happy Hump Day …let’s make that literal today, shall we? {well, not YOU and ME literally …but you know what I mean}

    Yes, I am another lady wanting a baby and not having an easy time getting one. I know what this feels like and I know that “funk” you speak of.

    I just want you to know I admire you for finding a way out of it. You have lots of talent, are beautiful and bright and sooooo flippin creative. You know what you want and go for it. I admire that bc sometimes I sit around and mope too long and get all in my head and think, I could never be this or that…

    Anyway. Thanks for being you.

    As Esdelope said, I like your fashion posts as much as your personal ones. Though it’s totally selfish, those posts make me also feel special and apprechiated as a reader.It just feels real and as you said: it’s you blog so post whatever the f*** you like. I know it sounds flat, but it’s the truth, I love your blog and I’m happy to read every single post day after day. Thank you.

    I agree w/Anon..don’t apologize. Those of us who have faced infertility TOTALLY get it. It’s a process to deal with this. In my case, learning that we would never have a bio child was a HUGE grieving process. Four years later, it’s still painful. I have made my choice, we’ve moved on and I am at peace. But it will always be a source of sadness .. and that’s NORMAL! take the time you need to deal!

    I haven’t experienced what you’re experiencing, but it seems like you are beyond in the right to feel sad despite the awesomeness in the other areas of your life! You want a child, you’re prepared for a child, and then you can’t seem to have one. That would bum anyone out. I hope you get what you want, and if you can’t get pregnant, that you adopt a kid from one of the 16 and pregnant girls. There seem to be enough to go around (I kid, I kid).

    Apology NOT necessary. I know exactly how you feel, because I feel the exact same way. My husband & I are also dealing with infertility (we both have issues, awesome.) and have no interest in IVF, either. As you pointed out, the process of sifting through your emotions is all part of the process. Thank you for being so honest. I appreciate knowing that someone else feels exactly the same way that I do. Hang in there, girl.

    Hi Maegan, I agree with Emily, apology definitely not necessary, it’s YOUR Blog and you can write anything you want anytime you feel like it. I am 31 years old, so you are not that older than I am, and an planning to try getting pregnant soon, I have polycistic ovaries (don’t know if i wrote it ok), so I am of course nervous about not being able to get pregnant anytime soon, but I would definetly would consider any medication if needed. Sorry if I am being too nosy, but I was wondering If you want to get pregnant so hard, why won’t you try modern methods? have you been like actually diagnosed as infertile, or what have been your gynecologyst’s recommendations so far? You and your husband make a great couple, you would be such amazing parents…. deep from my heart I hope you get to be a mom anytime soon. Best wishes.

    I visit your blog all the time and always love to hear and see what you have to say, whether it’s your outfit posts, your DIYs, your puppies or the more serious stuff too. No need to feel bad about a little sadness here and there. It just makes you seem more human. Most of the time you seem like you’re not even human looking and dressing so awesome all the time :) Happy Hump Day!

    I wanted to de-lurk to tell you how much I like your blog because you post your personality as well as your style. So many fabulous bloggers post the pictures and that’s it. And that’s fine and that has its own merits but what I love in a blog is to see how personality interacts with clothing and creates a style and a life. And personality isn’t just happiness, sometimes it’s sadness too. And all of that adds up to you, which is why I come back here. So, no worries about posting whatever you want. And damn straight, it is your blog–you can do whatever you want with it.

    I absolutely love those shoes. And funny, they don’t look that high in the pics.

    I know you probably don’t want advice as you shut the comms yesterday. But I’m sure I read on here before that you’re not seeking medical advice on the sitch. Basically, I’d implore you to go, as it might be something super simple that you could get sorted. Like a simple med like Clomid.

    Sorry to proffer unsolicited advice.

    As far as your outfit I must buy some of these sweaters and make cardigans. It’s so hard finding a good cardigan and I definitely need them to stay warm at the office.

    just remember, there is more than one way to become a mother. there are thousands of babies that need a caring, beautiful, creative, and unique woman to call mommy. children right where you live to across the world. once you care for a child, love it, nuture it, watch it grow, it doesn’t matter if it came from your body. it is still your child.
    hang in there!!!

    2 Things:

    1) your blog friends care about you just as much as your real-life friends.

    2) no, no one wants to read a blog that is debbie downer all the time, but your honesty and pure candidness are refreshing. I know a lot of bloggers (including myself) who struggle with how much to share. Especially when it comes to the not-so-rosy aspects of our lives.

    Bravo, I say.

    I know we bloggers know not to apologize for our posts because “its my blog”, but I understand the remorse sometimes, even if slight. I myself worry that someone will read it and think, “god, she’s so negative!” But that is so unfair to myself because I’m human and it is impossible to be happy or content with life 100% of the time. I love your fashion and DIY posts, but I also appreciate your real life posts. You have a beautiful heart!!

    i think one of the healthiest things you can do for you is express yourself, and there is a lot of power that comes with putting those words down on paper (computer). and fuck anyone who would judge you for that.

    i felt such sadness when i read your last post. i am such an empath and feel others pain so strongly. one of the hardest parts of living in los angeles for me. anyway i believe that your dreams will come true. i don’t know why we have these tests or whatever but so much of it is about timing i’ve found.

    and as for the sadness and not being inspired i totally understand. i have been suffering with chronic depression for 10 years and it’s been so bad the past few months that i can’t even think of doing a diy let alone hardly walk my dog. i hope you feel well soon and just want you to know that i am sending you a lot of positive energy.
