what i wore (a couple of weeks ago).

outfit of a day.

i am not wearing this today.

and i certainly do not consider myself a fashionista. i truly love fashion, i do - it's just not something that i find myself putting a whole lot of effort into. maybe if i were a more put-together person, with a clean room & laundry done, i would feel the urge + ability = productivity to be more creative in the closet.

but sometimes - just sometimes - my minimal effort produces something that i really like, be it truly fashionable or not. and that is exactly what happened when i put this orange dress & new birthday scarf together, with a tiny, brown, woven belt.

granted, this was a work look, given those modest brown pumps (and surprise! you can even see my badge lurking in the folds of the scarf - how chic). 

and of course i build my life on promises & resolutions & fresh starts. and of course it is all beginning to sound a little bit trite to me (and no doubt to everyone in my life). but i'd like to think that, with the posting of this little outfit, i've given myself a tiny push. a tiny nudge. a tiny hope that maybe, just maybe, i can put some effort into my outfits each day. that i can learn to take a little bit more pride in my day-to-day threads.

because really, it's important to remember that we only live once.

it's important to remember to cherish & celebrate each & every day.

each & every second.

I love your outfit and what you did with the scarf. The outfit looks playful with all that pop of color but at the same time it could also be corporate because of your shoes. I love your outfit.

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
