It's a Gold Collar Kind of Day

Bad fashion blogger over here! But I'm sure you already know that, since I've been late to post every day, MIA some days, and since I still haven't been editing my pictures!

Here's an update on what I've been up to:
1. I'm working full time in my real job, as a marketer for a tech company. My busy season of events starts in May, which means I've been working long hours at the office getting every last detail planned. 
2. I've been taking a Photoshop class. I'm almost done with all of the assignments for the class, and then I'll be able to spend time on Photoshop at night with my blog pictures, and not random photos of flowers, barns, and skylines for class. 
3. I've been visiting my grandma every couple of days. Both of my grandmas are still alive and, while they are 94 and 95, are super, super healthy. My mom's mom tripped over a scale 10 days ago after her treadmill workout and fell and broke her hip. She's doing great, but I've been making the 30-minute drive to see her quite often since the fall. 
4. I'm working a lot getting the garden ready for Spring and Summer. For those of you who follow me on instagram, you've seen me build 3 raised garden beds, plant a ton of seeds and roots and starts, and will get to see all of the produce that I start pulling out of the ground and off the plants once they start to flourish (I hope!). If you don't follow me on instagram, you should: http://instagram.com/bmarie35 
5. I'm making time to go to yoga, to go on runs, to make myself healthy meals, and to see my friends. This is a challenge lately, given everything else, but I'm somehow making it work. 

So things have been busy, to say the least. I'm sure some of you take on even more than that, but for me, that's close to full capacity. The blog has been taking a bit of a backseat. But I do have good news: In just a couple of weeks, the blog will have a makeover, and I've got a ton of outfit pics queued up for it's new look. So thank you for sticking around. Especially through the longest blog post ever (this one). 

Now, on to an outfit:

When my sister got me this collar necklace for Christmas I immediately loved it. I immediately wore it, just a couple of days after the holiday. And I've worn it a few times since. And this is the first time I got a photo of it. Again, bad blogger over here!





Linking up today with just a few of my Wednesday friends: The Pleated Poppy, Because Shanna Said So, Transatlantic Blonde
