I'm back! I've been on a hiatus from Pride & Joyce, as you may have noticed. Why? My absence is partially attributed to lack of motivation, time, inspiration and feeling short on creativity - which has been really hard. I've never felt so uninspired in my life, you guys! I hate it so much. I've been having talks with God, asking Him why I feel like this and how I can "get back to normal." Should I just quit? Should I embrace that I'm not going to be the next Joanna Gaines or Joy Cho and just give up? I don't think quitting is the answer - who quits as soon as something isn't easy? Cowards! I don't want to be lumped into that category. Woof. But I also don't want to be thought of as a failure. Ugh, that word is the worst. It hurts to type it. So, I've been trying to figure out why I'm feeling this way and how to get out of my rut. 2016 has been very introspective thus far, which is something I really struggle with - I get frustrated. It's a lot easier for me to figure other people out than myself - I'm so complicated! Yikes, my poor husband. However, I'm not going to let my FEELINGS stop me from doing something I've wanted to accomplish and share with the world - this blog. So, despite how I'm "feeling", I'm still here and I still want to share my opinions, likes, wants, rants and pretty things I find with you all. I've allowed my feelings to rule for the last four (almost five - gulp) months and enough is enough!
So without further adieu, here is my current "Want List" or as I lovingly call them - my monthly "Gimme Dat List". It consists of some wardrobe staples (and a faux plant I really want! ha) and features some of my favorite brands/stores: Athleta (a.k.a. my favorite place on the planet), Lululemon (not the biggest fan of all their stuff, but their headbands and yoga mats have no equal), Target, Madewell, Nordstrom, Baublebar, Steve Madden, Essie... etc. (Side Note: The floral dress and skinny boyfriend jeans are a part of the new collab that Target has with WhoWhatWear, releasing in stores on January 31! Nothing in the collection is over $49.95... yeah. AMAZE. I've linked to the entire lookbook below.)
How is your 2016? Can you relate to my feeling frenzy? Anything you're eyeing at the moment? SHARE below!
It feels good to be back - love you all!
