Hello there friends, this is me returning after a long, long absence!  I believe that, rather horrifyingly, I haven’t posted since mid-October.  Life was just crazy busy for a while, but I admit also that I just wasn’t feeling blogging anymore.  There was a ton of negativity in my little corner of the blogsophere around the time that I left, from all sorts of sources, and also, even more than that, I honestly found my blog to be kind of boring to read. I hadn’t been inspired to write for a very long time and was just kind of going through the motions.  That sort of content wasn’t any fun to write or produce, and not fun to consume either I’d imagine.  A nice long break has had me missing an outlet for all my fashion blatherings though, and so consider me returned for now!  I probably will only be posting a few times a week, but there is a bunch of stuff that I’m actually excited to talk about, so hopefully you guys will stick around and join me!

This outfit is a little old at this point (from the end of January, when I finally busted out the camera for an outfit picture for the first time in months), but I thought it might be appropriate to share to begin the month of March.  Green is one of my favorite accent colors, and one I get even more excited about using this month as St. Patrick’s Day approaches.  Expect  some more green-laden outfits in the upcoming weeks!

I squealed when I saw you pop up on my reader!
Your absence was missed dearly and it is so lovely to have you back Anjali!

Comment by Usha

thank you for coming back! I only discovered your site in October, and you stopped! I spent a good long time going through your older blogs, getting inspiration from your outfits, looking for items from years past on eBay that looked great on you. So I am very happy to have your inspired comments and photos again.

Comment by Diane

Welcome back, your colorful frilly pairings have been missed!

Comment by respect the shoes

OMG WELCOME BACK! I have missed you and your outfits and musings.

I have this same dress and you have given me some sweet “winterize” and “cold weather spring-ize” ideas from your beautiful ensemble!

Comment by Jesspgh

:) And I have an outfit that was inspired by one of YOUR ensembles coming up, so fair trade!

Comment by goldenmeans

Excellent! I can’t wait to see!

Comment by jesspgh

Comment by Fabulous Florida Mommy

Ahhh welcome back! I was just thinking about you and your blog a few days ago, wondering if you’d ever come back! I’m definitely glad to see you posting again!

And I just have to say, I loved all of your posts! Whether or not you thought they were boring or uninspired, I certainly never did. And the outfits you wear all always so beautiful and enjoyable to look at, so thank you! :)

Comment by Laura

Ah, hello hello you! And the internet lets out a collective squeal of joy to have you back! I can’t tell you how nice it was to see this post pop-up- I just dropped everything else! screw work!

Your polka-dots and green are bang on for anticipating spring (bah- snowstorm outside- I suppose that’s polka-dotty though…), and I believe those boots may be the most beauteous work of perfection I’ve seen in awhile. sigh. Thanks!

Comment by thatdamngreendress

Welcone back Anjali! It was such a pleasant surprise to see you pop up in my email. Looking splendid too! Not that I thought you wouldn’t. I suffer the same consequences of blogging. Adore the boots!

Comment by Laura

Welcome back! You’ve been missed :)

Comment by gigiofca

A big fat HURRAY!!! I always love looking at your photos and beautiful outfits.

Comment by tien

I was thinking of you a few days back … so good to see your post pop up! I was almost getting cynical that may be I unfollowed you without realizing and I now I wouldn’t find you! :)

Comment by roxyturtle

Welcome back! I’m sorry to hear about the negativity. All this is supposed to be fun. I don’t know what people’s problem is…
We have similar tastes, so I’m always interested in what you come up with, outfit and wishlist-wise.
I do love that bag. I wish MbMJ’d bring the birds back again on one I could afford… ;)

so nice to see you back- I have missed you.

Comment by Judy

I’m so happy to see your post. I’ve missed reading your blog. I saw you twice since Oct at the Palo Alto store and once got up the nerve to say hi and ask you to please please blog again. The second time I saw you, I think you bought the Unconditional Oisier dress and the Veiled Alder dress and I can’t wait to see how to wear those. :)

Comment by LoveYellow

Yay, you’re back! I’m so happy!

Comment by Anna

Hooray!! Welcome back! I’ve missed seeing your posts a bunch!


Comment by lori

I just found your blog recently and I really like it! I’m really glad you are back to put more adorable outfits together :)

Comment by Ashley

I am so glad you are back! I did a double take when I saw your blog on my blog roll at the top! Yay! I sure know how you feel though. I have been thinking of taking a break too. I am finding that I can’t get so excited about clothes and such right now. I am going to try to press through because I know that is what I “should” do. You were sorely missed!

Comment by Royaltygirl

I’m glad that you are coming back to blogging feeling refreshed and renewed. Your voice is one I have enjoyed reading for its thoughtfulness and practicality.
