the perfect transition romper

Shein romper c/o (under $20!!) // Forever21 denim jacket // fringe bag // Kendra Scott necklaces (here + here) // Loft sunglasses // PinkSlip Boutique bracelet c/o (very similar)

Sorry I have been a little MIA lately.... this sentence sounds just like the post before. Guess it's time to get explaining a few things to you all.  As much as I love blogging it has definitely changed in the past few years. For both me and for bloggers in general I believe. 

For me, blogging used to be a hobby, a side job, a creative outlet. I didn't used to stress about every single sale going on, which clothes in my wardrobe were in stock online so I could put my outfits together, or spend hours upon hours searching the internet for items that were extremely similar to those that had already sold out. Phew, sounds like craziness! Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining about these struggles as I know there are doctors, lawyers, teachers etc going to work day in and day out with issues of their own. For me, my life has just changed and clothing + fashion blogging has been more difficult for me to concentrate my focus on. 

As many of you know from following along on Instgram that I am in a relationship + living with my boyfriend Stephen. He is amazing! It's the first time I have ever lived with a man before, so a learning process is taking place. We also have his 5 year old daughter (who you've probably died at how cute she is on insta!) living with us during the weeks, each week. Talk about change from condo living single life to suburb family life! haha! And I wouldn't trade it for the world but it has changed my direction on thoughts and priorities. This became very apparent when I didn't make it to Nordstrom once during the sale. Thats right, I didn't make it to Nordstrom in the past few weeks! Instead I spend time shopping for hello Kitty backpacks, school uniforms, hair bows that only come in red, white, or navy, + grocery shopping for foods that can be taken as lunches. 

For all the mom's out there that are killing it in style blogging as well as keeping their kids school ready and their homes clean..... hats off to you! Seriously. 

Another big reason for my break in blogging is my other business, and my main career, Photography! As the summer comes to an end the heat will also start to fade which means photography + wedding season kicks off in Arizona! I have been on over load with editing session, brainstorming for this coming seasons, + client meetings! This feels amazing. I LOVE what I do + need to make it my priority. You can follow along + see my new website I just designed WWW.STESHAJORDAN.COM and follow along on Instagram @SteshaJordanPhotography!

I am not saying goodbye to blogging, I will post when I can. Some weeks probably way more than others. I hope to get back to normal posting but if you don't hear from me for a few weeks now you know why! I always keep my Instagram updated with personal life so check there as well! @SteshaRose or you can find me on snapchat @SteshJordan

Good luck on this new chapter! And when blogging is no longer fun but a chore it's time to re-evaluate ;-)

But loving this romper, I love the beautiful design and that it's more form fitting and not as frumpy as most rompers!
