save the llama for your mama...

I excel at bad puns...

So you know when a dear old friend texts and you see it and go "awww!" and you mean to text back but then you get a phone call or somehow otherwise distracted.  Then you remember it later but you get distracted again because you have quinoa burning on the stove, and then like a week later you remember you never texted back and you want to text back right then but you're in pretty heavy traffic.  Then months pass and you just feel like a piece of shit and you want to text back but you feel so much time has passed it would be insulting to text back, and it slowly and painfully gnaws at you...

Anyone with me on that?

Well that is what blogging turned into for me... and you eventually just have to man up and text back, or man up and blog, rather.

I feel that since this is conceivably the last New Year's for which we will make resolutions, since the hysteria surrounding that 2012 bullshit may just lead to the downfall of mankind, I should actually make and carry out some myself.  That includes less fucking around.

You know when you are just so overwhelmed with things to do and you are spread so thin that instead of rolling up your sleeves and getting down to business you just shut down?  That's what I've been doing these last five months... just been operating on autopilot.  I haven't been giving anything in my life 100%, which is a shame.  My New Year's resolution is essential to stop fucking around.

That's pretty reasonable, right?  Anyone else got some pretty awesome and super vague resolutions?

Sweater: Madewell
Skirt: Urban Renewal (Urban Outfitters)
Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens
Sunglasses: Ray Bans (Prescription!  Thanks Bahb!)

Oh, I just realized that the title is even WITTIER than I originally thought!  I know what you're thinking, "WITTIER than replacing one word with another word that rhymes in a pretty popular saying?!  IMPOSSIBLE!"  Well, it is, it really is because... DRUMROLL PLEASE... my mama actually bought me this llama sweater at Madewell in Annapolis!  

Anyway, Happy New Year's everyone and seriously... how the hell have you guys been?!

Here's to less fucking around :o)


  1. I'm super glad to see you around these parts again - I was just thinking abut you the other day (is that weird?).

    Anyway, please don't feel obligated to apologize for not blogging. Life happens, fashion blogs fall by the wayside. Such is the way of the world.

    Your hair! It's so long. CUTE! And I love your llama sweater.

  2. OOOOOHHHHHHHHH MMMMMMYYYYYYY FFFFFFFUUUUUUCCCCKKKKIIIIIIIINNNNNNNGGGGGG GGGGGGOOOOOOODDDDDDDD. I was so excited to see this I almost wrote this entire comment without even reading your post. Please tell me this means you're back?? I hope so. I seriously think to myself all the time, "Dag, I miss Alex!!! I wonder if she's ever coming back!"

    I'm so excited to see this. You don't even know. It's stupid.

    Ok. Ok, so. I love your hair. It looks so cute like that, all shaggy and grown out. You look adorable. Sweater-skirt combo: aces. And I get what you're saying. I feel like that sometimes too. Sometimes just taking a week off from something can lead to months and months and forever. I do so much, it seems like, and I like to do a lot, but then I find that the more I do, the less I'm putting into what I do. Such is life.

    Again, YAY!!

  3. Your blog has been one I've missed so much!! Your honesty rocks, by the way. Good luck with your resolution!! We could all use that mantra a little more in our lives ;)

  4. Alex, I missed you so much!!! Seriously, because I enjoyed your blog and you disappeared for almost half a year! I'm really glad you're back!!! I love the llama sweater and your title actually reminds me of this book Princess Sparkles loves to read called, "Llama Llama Red Pajama" about this Llama and his Mama. It's really cute. Anyway, sorry this is gonna be a long comment because I'm just so glad to see you again! I miss all the JC shoes, and the rockin' hair, and the great stuff you write about. Happy New Year and looking forward to many more posts from you!!!

  5. Oh, look who's alive. The only reason I even knew you updated was because I hadn't removed your blog from bloglovin'. You should try to, you know, post more than once every 6 months. kthxbye.

    Haha, or not. But seriously, welcome back. I hope your year of not fucking around is splendid and delightful and all that jazz. It is good to see you again. (:

  6. Cute! the ankle socks are a great touch (:
