You may have noticed after the 30 Day Static wardrobe experiment I took the summer off. Not only did I take the summer off blogging, but also from my businesses, my diet, my exercise and my communication with anyone outside my family or my lake friends.

I was killing it with my diligence for 3 months, even zip locked bagged up my powder and vitamins to take while I was on the road. Then the spring business craziness hit all the kids’ activities, not to mention trying to ingest as much caffeine as possible to fuel it all, and you guessed it: my habit faded and had disappeared.
I was working for the company I previously blogged about that timed the frequency and duration of coffee breaks (even when you were working a 16-hour day). So of course since I was the rule follower then (as I am now), I decided running for my coffee was a good idea – need to keep that time out of office to a minimum! And yes, in my new platforms … why not?
I feel like this is just another example of the ugly side of the fashion industry. Nike doesn't care about them, the fashion companies don't care about them, they are perfectly ok with them going into debt for a look. Keeping people saddled down with debt so they cannot get out of their situations, because these kids have to have the coolest, newest outfit.
We decided the right thing to do was dress in a cute dress and forget the experiment for the night. I was super excited to shop my own closet for the first time in a while! When I put on my favorite leather dress, I thought, “well, this is a little too much celebration and I really don't want to draw attention to myself on someone else's birthday.”
