i know i know i know…all i’m doing is plugging the shop these days, but i have to keep going…the fire i lit [under my booty] is roaring!

and when i start to get a little burnt out (inevitable), i’ll switch it up and start posting outfits again.  this is how i roll.  back and forth, up and down, all over the place…i wouldn’t have it any other way.

some people knit or bake to keep idle minds and hands busy…i just pile a bunch of shit on my plate and go to town…stressing myself out, but enjoying the feast anyway.  (well that’s kinda gross.  i pretty much just made it sound like i enjoy feasting on piles of shit.  not just feasting, but going to town. sorry for that mental picture.  i can assure you, i don’t do any feasting.  and really, that should go without saying.  awkward.)  sooooo…back to filling my plate with too much and loving it…i’ve come to the realization that this is just who i am!  lost sticky notes and all.

guess what??  i’m leaving this evening for my little vacation!!  couldn’t have planned it any better…perfect timing, really.  looking forward to getting out-of-town and having no worries or stresses or expectations or…anything!  just fun and laughs.

i can’t focus at all today…eeeeeeeep!  so freaking pumped.

okay, one thing before i go…thank you so much to all who have purchased an item (or items!) from barefoot & vintage, in the last week or two.  i can’t thank you enough for driving me even harder to make the shop more successful!

don’t forget about the 20% MOUSEVOX discount!!  take advantage while you can.  offer only good until the end of august.

ps.  i’m going out of town wednesday evening and won’t be returning until sunday.  aside from the shop updates, you probably won’t hear much from me.

i did however, want to leave you with this…

and btw…those are my freshly, self-cut bangs!  not bad, eh?  probably doesn’t look like much to you, but it was a big freaking deal to me!  although, now i’m kinda obsessed and i’ve been snipping here and there since friday afternoon.  (perfectionist at heart.)  it’s like that eyebrow plucking thing that some girls get into…they pluck so much, they end up with no eyebrows at all and have to draw them in!

i hope i don’t have to draw my bangs on my forehead…

yikes.

little. yellow. sticky.

something you should know about me…

i’m forgetful and absentminded and even though i make lists, i forget about them and often find yellow sticky notes stuck in random places.  in the pages of a book, on the floor of my car, in my wallet, stuck to the back of another list…

ultimately, this causes the opposite of organization.  i end up overwhelmed and unnecessarily stressed.

i stress myself out.  who does that?!  i do.

my point is this…

i need to set my priorities for the week and stick with it.  (no pun intended.)

as i mentioned before, taylor starts school in a few weeks and i like to keep him on a pretty strict schedule.  when we have a schedule, things run smoothly.  when things run smoothly, mommy is happy.

so something has to give…i can’t possibly bust my ass every day after work to get home, take photos, edit them, and write a post…all in between homework, dinner, going for a run, or any other necessary errands and house stuff.

i’m sure most of you can’t relate (to the kid thing) and that’s okay!  we all get busy though, with or without kids.  i’m not more busy because i have a little one, i just don’t have as many hours in the day for blogging and picture-taking.  pout.

all that being said, i may not have time to post daily outfits once school starts.  morgan said it’s okay.  she said maybe i can just do weekend outfit posts.  morgan also said that the stucco background is very fashion forward and that all the biggest fashion photographers and models should start using it as their background and name paige/barefoot & vintage as their inspiration.

okay, she didn’t say that last part.

but she did say this…

“stucco IS fashion.”
-morgan of morgan and lua.

morgan – please note that i moved to a different area of my “yard”.  the stucco has a more rustic feel, if you will.

i guess i’m just hoping (when i cut back) that i won’t lose any of you.  i’d like to think that my regular followers like me for me and not just because i have undeniably amazing style and wear like…the coolest, most sought after, vintage items. and i’m modest and down to earth to boot.

on the other hand (i’m about to name drop again),  merl calls me paige “false alarm” pitzer.  which simply means, i say all this now because i’m preparing everyone for worst case scenario.  in reality, i probably won’t stop posting every day and all of this will have been for nothing.

possibly just to keep you on your jeffrey campbell toes.

i think you get what i’m saying.  it’s more about me not stretching myself too thin.  after all, my blog/my shop is supposed to be my hobby.  the minute it starts feeling like a chore, is the minute i need to step away.

how do you juggle work, school, kids, husbands, boyfriends, friends, blogging, outfits, etc??  because sticky notes aren’t working for me…

thanks for your continued support…i appreciate you all!

ps.  i’m retiring the skirt.  i’ve worn it here, here and here.
