Take my time Outfit # 9

Keeping a blog has a lot to do with taking your time! 30 for 30 challenge has taught me that!
In the middle of the week I started feeling a pressure of posting one outfit a day. The thing is that each post needs time to brew as I like to say. From the selection of clothes to the take of photos, the editing and the actual writing is a lot of work and it takes time to be done.
I'm a working mother of 3 primary school children and I have that much time left. I was almost ready to quit but then I realised that we don't have a dead line and we can skip a few days if we are busy and that this challenge was about having fun with our clothes, not stress over it.
Have you faced similar problems?Do you post every day? Have you thought of quiting!

PS this is my first attempt with colored tights.What do you think?


  1. I love the colored tights and the whole outfit! Great colors and details.

    You're right, it should be fun. No stress allowed!

    I am currently posting 1 day later to give me some breathing space. But then again I don't have 3 children!

  2. The colored tights are wonderful! I absolutely put pressure on myself to post daily and pick out what to wear. But I remind myself about what you said, it's for fun. I don't make myself post something everyday. I'd rather it be good than just there. Your outfits are so cute and so wearable! ~Serene

  3. You did great with the tights! I agree, sometimes real life gets in the way of blogging. But I think real life should win every time :)

  4. I don`t have any kids and am currently taking a break from work and I STILL find it hard to be this disciplined. Some days I have no idea what to write! And I shouldn`t even complain because compared to most, I have all the time in the world.

    P.S.: If I lived closer (say, in Italy or Turkey), I would totally offer to babysit for free. Blogosphere perks! Kind of like a union.

  5. Yes... Not a lot of people realize blogging takes a lot of work - not just taking a pic and putting online!

    You look fantastic. Don't quit.

  6. Thanks so much for the offer greatly appreciated!!!Isn't that nice and important that so many people get connected like that?So simple and so powerful!Blogosphere rocks!

  7. Yes, I have seriously wondered if I would be able to keep up.

    The tights seem so natural to you that I might not have gone back for a second look, if you hadn't mentioned it!

  8. Great job with the color tights, I really like your maryjanes. That style of shoe is my favorite. This outfit is really nice and you wouldn't even realize you have a busy life. Great Remix

  9. I don't post everyday. Instead I do it all at once. I also don't get dressed every day. lol

  10. Take your time! No stress :)

    I love all the pink tones from your sweater to your tights to your nail polish! You look wonderful. :)

  11. I think your colored tights are fantastic! I really love how you styled your scarf too.

    I tend to get overwhelmed trying to post every day, but what REALLY overwhelms me is trying to stay on top of my blog reader! If I skip just one day, I suddenly have 200+ posts to catch up on! It's crazy. Sometimes I just have to skip them.

  12. I love the coloured tights! They're perfect for a first try, because they are similar enough to the top that they don't stand out too much.
    Thank you for your comment today...I really like to keep my outfit styles different because I get bored reading fashion blogs that wear the same type of outfit over and over, so I like to offer a variety of styles, and I still feel like they're all very ME. I'm glad you noticed (that I like to switch things up)

  13. GREAT outfits.. love your color choices and mixes... and I love your style... you have awesome boots and belts too... my fav.. I love boots!!

    I'm also doing the 30 for 30 challenge.. will be back to visit!!

  14. You look wonderful, again. But don't stress over this. It is supposed to be fun! Take your time with it and enjoy it.
    I'm glad you aren't quitting.

  15. The pink tights are great! I love how you've incorporated so much color into this outfit -- it looks wonderful on you!
