I'm Back, Finally!



Hey Everyone!

I want to say sorry for not posting anything for that last  2 weeks. I really want to apoplogize to the devoted few of you that check my blog daily, I really appreciate knowing that I have a small following. The past week had been rough for me. I have been going through a realization that my plan A career may not happen and I have been trying to come to terms that my life my not play out how I have dreamed it for the last 5 years. With that reality thrown in my face, I needed some time to accept this idea, create a plan B, and make another road map to make my new plan work.
With my new plan in hand and a few tissue boxes aside I am ready to come back. Personal style blogging has been my own coping method and a time to let me forget about the frustrations I have just for 15-30 minutes everyday. 
Thank you for being patient and please keep following along.

Cheers, Erica

7 Day Dare: Hallmark Holiday


I am not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. When I was in elementary school I loved it! I thought it was so cute to show your love and appreciation to everyone! Then in high school when I was single I hated it. I hated how the high school sweethearts were all lovey dovey and I there I was eating my box of chocolates that I bought for myself. Then when I did get a boyfriend I moved to Wyoming and we couldn't celebrate Valentine's Day together and again I bought myself a box of chocolates. Now that I am home and we can celebrate Valentine's Day together I just don't get it. Why celebrate your love when you feel obligated? I will be with my guy on Valentine's Day though.
On to the outfit! I am so happy to have white jeans! I am so excited to wear them more when we get more sun and warmer weather.

7 Day Dare: Fox Tracks



I thought about this outfit awhile ago and I wasn't sure if I liked it or not at the time. I put it on today and I absolutely love the look. I really loved this top when I saw it even though I wasn't sure about the pink glasses on the fox. This whole outfit was a gamble essentially. I wanted something comfortable for class and hanging out and I totally nailed it!
 Plus I kind of wore this look because around my neighborhood in the snow I am finding fox tracks. Little paw prints that are in a straight line are going all over the place. I hope I can see one again! The last time I saw one was in Wyoming on my way to my grandmothers house in the middle of nowhere. That one was pretty big and so orange!
I may have to settle for going to the Zoo and watching the little artic foxes play in the snow.

7 Day Dare: My Vest Matches My Toes


The snow is starting to melt ever so slowly.
I need a little color in my life to combat all the dark. I painted my little toes a shade of pink that matches my vest because like I said I need a little bright to bring happiness and hope that the warm will come soon. Even the sun has been hiding. I really like that I chose this vest for a 7 Day Dare, it really has lightened my mood but now I want green grass, fresh tulips and I don't want to wear my heavy winter coat anymore.
All this complaining, sheesh!

7 Day Dare: Bear Necessities


Right now I am in dire need of a tan!
I mean look at that face, God I need some color on that pasty white face. My skin is almost as white as my face. I swear, if there wasn't snow on the ground I would look even more colorless.
If you are going somewhere sunny with a beach for spring break take me with you!!!
