One-Hundred Fifty-Eight

One-hundred fifty-eight...that's how many days it's been since my last blog post. Shame, isn't it? For someone that wants to make a career out of fashion blogging/fashion journalism, how dare I fall off so tremendously? 

I could give you guys (and myself) an excuse as to why I hadn't been keeping up with Damsel in Detroit like I should've been. I could tell you all about how I was working six days a week, how I didn't have anything cute to wear for pictures, how I didn't know what to write about — but all of those aren't good enough reasons. I seriously am going to start buckling down and challenging myself to come up with innovative ways (and outfits) to keep you all coming back to the blog!

During my hiatus, I was working a job I didn't enjoy. It was great in the beginning, but things started to take a turn for the worst. Luckily, I was able to put in my two weeks, and I'm happy to say that I will now be the Sr. Advisor at the new Warby Parker store that's opening in downtown Detroit! Woo hoo! Praise the Lord!

Fall temps are finally here and I'm happy about it. I personally believe that I put my best looks together in the colder months. I love layering and I could live in booties for the rest of my life, honestly.

Today I had a doctor's appointment and had to refrain from being extra, haha. If you know me, you know that's HARD. I opted for jeans, a long-sleeve T-shirt, my trench coat and taupe suede ankle boots.

I'm in the process of learning how to dress more casually. I always feel so regular when I just have jeans and a tee on! I'm trying to accept the fact that in some cases, less is more, and to not waste my really good outfits on simple days like today, haha.

But anyway, what have you guys been up to? Anything you'd like to share with me?

If you have something that you'd like to see on the blog as far as styling tips, tutorials, etc,, etc. PLEASE let me know! I'm forever wondering what I can talk to y'all about next. Gracias!
