do.

hi friends. 
i hate that i've been so absent from here. i have really loved the time i've spent on the daily be over the past (almost) five years and i'm not ready to give up on her quite yet. however, i'm in a phase of life that is, in a word: busy. i've been very fortunate to have some awesome opportunities over the past several months to do some freelancing work (working on an app for iphone, writing and styling for local news magazines, and now working on a fun feature for a better homes and gardens halloween magazine) which hasn't left me much time to spend on this creative outlet that i enjoy so much. in addition to all that (as i mentioned) i went back to school and have been completely overwhelmed by how much time and effort that requires. 

when i first started blogging, i had a very part-time job, one less child and not much of a social life. as a (mostly) stay-at-home mom, the blog was my connection to the outside world. and the only creative outlet that i had. it's thrilling to finally be able to do the type of work i have dreamed of doing and get paid for it! so, unfortunately, the daily be has been temporarily put on the back burner. i still think about blogging a lot and i miss it! i miss you! but i've also received some gentle criticism regarding the lack of variety here. i guess simply posting an occasional outfit with a few sentences isn't really what you have come to expect, so lately i've stopped even trying to do that. 

on any day of the week i have so much that i'd love to write and share, i just honestly don't have the time. my time lately is spent writing about the history of the newspaper (yes, i wrote an entire essay on that) and reading about hydrogen bonds (at least...i think that's what they're called). i'm not giving up on the daily be. this is a season. i hope to be able to squeeze in a post every now and then, but it may be more like, the monthly bei hope you'll understand.
xo,
B


now, how 'bout one of those shallow outfit posts?!
this is my favorite season to get dressed for. it's like everything in your closet is fair game. it's cool in the mornings and evenings and warm during the day. 
i wore this last weekend and it's sort of my ideal outfit. a little edgy, yet feminine, and completely comfortable. i had the opportunity to style a feature on fall shoe trends and while scouting out some options, these wedge sneakers caught my eye and i practically tripped over myself to get to them. (occupational hazard.) 
i had drooled over the isabel marant original for a couple years and more recently, the still-unaffordable ash version. so when i saw this steve madden pair, i was sold and i've worn them non-stop since then. i could literally run a 5k in these babies. try me--i'll prove it. and i could actually use the motivation to go for a run.
