This is my second time posting this grey jacket/sweater-thing, and I still struggle with what to call it. They label and categorize it as a jacket but I just can't get on board with that! It's not structured enough and doesn't have any buttons or zippers for closure. But regardless of the name, it's incredibly comfortable and I throw it on as lounge wear all the time (but I don't bother to post those non-outfits on the blog!). I've also shown how I wear it as a cover-up over fitness apparel (see it here in my All Things Fitness reference post), but I wanted to try wearing it as part of a normal outfit and I was happy with how it worked out!
My eco-friendly jeans are a new favorite and I really love the light wash for Spring. They run true to size, and I posted three additional outfits with these here.
And finally, my no-fail white Barcelona cami! When in doubt, I can always make an outfit with this cami plus pretty much any jacket or cardigan I own and some jeans. I have a round-up of twelve outfits for all four seasons with this piece in this post.

Monday Motivation: Priorities
When my blogging friends are going through a tough time in life or just have a little too much on their plate due to one circumstance or another, I am the first one to tell them not to stress themselves out so much over missing a post here and there. The blog will be there when they get back, their followers won't shun them over a couple of missed days, most people are very understanding that life can get a little hectic at times, etc. I don't think any readers have ever been unable to carry on with their day due to the lack of a post from a particular blogger. And yet when it comes to my own blog, I have a hard time taking my own advice and keeping this perspective!
Something that really hit home with me when I read The 5 Love Languages recently was the importance of giving loved ones our undivided attention, not just, "I'm listening while I look at photos on Instagram/fold laundry/wash dishes, etc." As I mentioned in the intro, my mom will be in town visiting this week and I really want to make quality time with her my top priority. For me to do that, blogging and social media simply have to take a backseat and be a bit less consistent. So all that is to say I'm more motivated to be a good daughter this week than to be a good blogger, so I appreciate your understanding as I try to keep my life priorities in order!
