It's Been Awhile

Hello, all. 
If anybody is around that still reads my blog, that is. I've been gone far longer than I planned, but really, I didn't plan on being gone at all. 
Since I've last written here we've moved in with my parents to save up for a house (and finish paying off a little bit of student debt...whooo!) Tyler has just finished up assistant directing a film, which took him from me for the whole month of October.
 Some sadness has crossed my path as well these last few months, and if you follow me on instagram you'll know I had a very dear friend and mentor pass away quite suddenly this summer. 
Life has been a little jumbled and complicated for the Littons as of late, but we're finally getting everything sorted out. I decided I wanted to come back to a little bit of blogging and it's been lovely to look around at all the darling blogs I follow, but haven't read in months.

Here is a little fall outfit I wore a week or so ago. I also have a couple summer outfits back in the files I might pull out. After all it's heading into summer for some of my friends out there.

  2. So glad to see you back! Your blog is one of my favorite reads. Im so excited to hear about your saving up for a house!! We rent our little house but Im hoping in thr next year or so, we'll finally be ready to do the same. Its so good to have a spot to call your own! ♡

  3. I'm so sorry for you loss and I'm sorry you've had some hard times. I did, too, a few years back, but it's gotten easier... But I'm glad you're back! I didn't follow you on Instagram (because I don't have one), but now that I checked I'm slightly jealous of your hair, it's so versatile! :)

  4. Adorei o sapato, o look esta perfeito.
