MIC CHECK – ONE TWO ONE TWO!!…

Mic check one two one two!! Hope everyone is well and safe in this crazy world. Excuse my absence from the blog world. A couple of days break turned into a week and then weeks. Its been precisely a month and two weeks since my last blog post. It was luck of motivation at first but, gradually turned into something I can’t even place my finger on.

Anyways….how’s life treating y’all? Happy August! I can’t believe we have literally been indoors throughout the first half of 2020. Life hasn’t felt the same because of rona. Even though outside is open, it doesn’t feel the same. It feels like something is missing. There are so many restrictions. It’s not even fun to be outside.

How do you feel about life now?

So what have y’all been up to this summer?

My summer has been mostly indoors due to the bipolar weather (lol!) but, whenever the sun smiles on us we make use of it with a good picnic on the park. This has definitely become the new normal for everybody. Currently, I am in Austria visiting my family. I haven’t seen them for five years and that’s a long time not to see them. While I’m here, I hope to visit a couple of neighbouring countries to explore.

Mic check…one two one two! I will leave it here for now. Wishing y’all a blessed week.affordable summer dresses Mic checkdangling earrings

Much Love!

    You are not alone in having taken breaks from blogging in this crazy pandemic and genocidal orange sociopath threatened world.
    Happy August to you as well!!
    It’s wonderful that you were able to visit your family in Austria.
    It is very different here as well,
    always needing to have the rona mask handy while social distancing, even outside.
    Better safe than infected!
    I have been giving in to my reclusive nature and, probably unwisely,
    putting off seeing doctors out of rona-fear.
    I LOVE that dress!!! It looks fabulously comfortable and airy in the first photo,
    and you look especially fabulous wearing it in the third photo as well (I love the pose).
    Best wishes for the second half of summer!
    P.S.: It’s National Underwear Day here in the U.S.,
    so I left a comment on my two year old (5 Aug, 2018) post on that subject.
    Lazy, aren’t I?
    I hope your day was a happy one there!!!

      Oh yes, it was about time.
      I believe it is the same everywhere. Can be frustrating sometimes.
      Definitely understand you in terms of going to the doctors.
      Thank you very much. Good to hear that.
      P.S.: I didn’t know this existed. You did? Hahahaa…way to go!
      Sure was and hope you’re staying safe!
      Thanks so much and appreciate ya.

    The world is weird. At first glance, it can appear normal, but it’s not. Super cute outfit! I love the design of the dress, the hat, and the fun purse. Perfect. Have fun with your family, and stay safe!

    Beautiful photos! I can relate, friend. I took a little unintended break as well. I feel like with this crazy year, sometimes we just need some time to relax and recharge. Hope all is well with you! 🙂

    Those earrings are such a statement piece – love it! I’ve been mostly indoors as well, working away with school, but I started taking up skateboarding, which has been super fun to learn! Hope you have fun exploring Austria and the nearby area!

    I know what you mean, it be challenging to stay motivated with blogging sometimes. Everything keeps changing it seems. And yes things are not the same even being able to get out. I have only been out 5 times in 5 months. Summer here has been humid, not stop humidity and hot. Hard to enjoy have been to the beach twice. I feel like we are never going to get back to normal…

    But love this dress and looks great with the plaid bag and those super fun earrings. Love it!

    I know what you mean. I have hardly been out as I don’t feel safe, let’s be honest virus is still out there and nothing has changed since March. Wearings masks in 30 plus temperature in unbearable so yeh it’s hard to enjoy being out and about.

    Happy August to you too Sis. I hear ya and can relate, with all that’s going on in this world staying motivated with blogging has been challenging. Glad I still get to see that beautiful face on Instagram though. Love those earrings. My summer has been pretty low key. I feel very professional developed from all the PD classes I’ve been taking pretty much all summer. Enjoy what’s left of summer.

    Sending love

    This summer does feel weird! Like you said, being outside (even though we’re allowed to go out and go out for dinners here) it feels off. Something – the spontaneity? – is missing. I have been spending lots of time at home – still working from home -, sitting in our garden (very thankful for a garden!), going on long walks by myself or with a friend, and we have been on a short trip to Germany and Belgium recently.

    However, you look so stylish again! I hope you’re having a wonderful time in Austria! It must be very beautiful this time of the year!

    Mavis … you’re back!!! How’d I miss this post?! I was coming to your site every so often. I guess I just didn’t check after August 4th. I can understand taking some time off. I do that too. We are always here for when you get back. Now, I adore this look on you, my beautiful Mavis! The dress is lovely and I love the pop of colors on your handbag and earrings. Topping it off with your signature kicks makes this an effortlessly chic style! Welcome back, my friend! 🙂
