I’m BAAAaack!

sweater: forever 21 (shop) // skirt: downeast basics, altered // wedges: target // bracelets: sira and mara c/o, target, gift
Last Friday my laptop froze, I shut it off, and then it wouldn’t turn back on. After a long trip to the apple store, and a little scare that we wouldn’t be able to recover my files (without paying at least $200 from a specialist, still without a guarantee), we discovered the hard drive was failing. Happily the computer was still under warranty.  So after a few days away, I finally got it back yesterday, complete with a new hard drive and all my precious files. This is me breathing a huge sigh of relief.

  • lovely outfit today! you look great! xo


  • Um – I wondered at first why you were wearing something so light because it snowed here today. Then I had a memory jog and realized you were in Cali. Happy for you! I'm liking the sweater in particular.

  • Lovely. Hope you're enjoying the change in climate.

  • Glad you got tht worked out! Glad to see you back and enjoying the california sun. Although the last few days it's been a little too cold for my liking!

  • yay for all your precious files! i would have freaked!

  • Glad everything is safe. And I just love the linkups you guys do, I hope I remember 🙂

  • that sweater is so cute! your computer ordeal must have been so frustrating. I'm so afraid of that happening. glad your files were saved.

  • Glad you were able to recover everything! that would have given me a heart attack if I had lost everything on my laptop 🙁


  • Yayyyyyy I've missed you! Welcome back, girl!

  • I have this skirt, and I love it! Though I've never thought of pairing it with a pink sweater. Cute. Glad you got your files back, too! I've had Apple scares myself with my MacBook (which is now more than four years old and dying).

  • Phew… glad it all worked out for you!

  • LOVE that scalloped skirt!! So glad the computer was okay, we have 2 external hard drives with viruses that it will be a miracle if we recover our data…so sad.


  • What a nice skirt you sew.how did you sew this skirt and which pattern and material did you use. Merry X,mas and happy new year!

    • I actually just refashioned the skirt — I didn't sew the whole thing. But the skirt is just cotton. You can see the before and after on my link in the post!
