Why I Haven't Been Consistently Posting

Hook 'Em Always
Hi Darlings.
So if you follow the blog on the reg, you'll have noticed I've missed a few days over the past couple of weeks. Usually it's on a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday and I'm sorry.
But I'm at this impasse with Haute Table - no, I still love it, that isn't the problem. It's more of a problem of I want to create really good content? Like in the past I used to put 10 images in a post with no words and call it Saturday Inspiration - and that was fine back then but that isn't what I want to do anymore. I want to provide for y'all stuff that I would want to read. So sometimes I don't have a post and then the blog just sits empty. 
However, I am working to remedy this. My semester is super light this year because 1) I'm applying for jobs #stressed and 2) I want to focus on other things - like the blog! I am taking a lot more time to come up with an editorial calendar this year and I'm really excited about it.
So I hope you can forgive the past few weeks of not posting 6 times a week, it's coming back I promise. 

Hope you're having a wonderful day - xoxo darling, Hayden.

Blue Ridge Houndstooth

Y'all. It was cold in North Carolina {at one point the low was eight degrees!}. This is one of my favorite warm outfits and guess what - I couldn't find most of the pieces on ShopStyle because they are all "old" in my wardrobe. But I think that speaks to the retailers who created them. The coat is from Talbot's and it is so comfy; the sweater was purchased from a Goodwill Boutique and is Oscar de la Renta men's. My beret came from a tourist shop on Rue de Rivoli - that blue was so chic my sophomore year of high school. I love each of them individually and together; not to mention the scenery of the Blue Ridge Parkway really helped balance them out. What do y'all think? Do you have retailer's whose clothes you can wear for years? - xoxo darling, Hayden
