Hey! StyleStickynotes is back from hiding! I thought I should start off my return with a quick OOTD, the classic post on StyleStickynotes. It’s summer now so it’s time to take out all them shorts and skirts. While I was in New York, I saw this cute pink leather skirt in a pile of clothes at Zara and thought “I had to buy it!” (That’s not a sign of a shopaholic, I swear). If you haven’t noticed, I love leather everything, but sometimes it can look too edgy and uninviting, but this blush pink colour is the perfect girly meets biker chic. I also added a staple chambray shirt with some stud detailing and sheer black blouse to balance the edgy with the preppy. Stockings are optional, but I added grey ones just because it was a tad breezy at night. Any shoes would look great with this outfit, but to go along with the edgy-girly vibe, I added my white split-leather (think of this material as a cross between suede and leather) combat boots. Just add any bling you like, some cool shades and a vibrant lip (a summer essential) and your OOTD is complete!

It’s been a long six months… apparently I have started this blog over a year ago, but since I have been MIA, it feels like I just started blogging not long ago… I’m going to be blunt and say that blogging had become more of a chore than a hobby as time progressed. I kept making excuses saying that I am busy with school or that I was out and about in New York, but although these excuses are true, my conscience screams that I just lost my passion to blog. I wouldn’t say that I have totally regained my passion, but after being away, blogging seems like a part that defines me, so it is something I will eventually come back to. If you are reading this today, I thank you for your virtual support and I hope you will continue to support me as I struggle with balancing my priorities and finding myself. Let me know if you have any stories you would like to share about your struggles defining YOU. It’s great to be back!
