How I Avoided the Loony Bin

Shortly before the drive back to Edmonton I took some time out from the hell that is packing to take a stroll around my New Haven neighborhood to both say goodbye to the area and, more importantly, avoid a packing-induced breakdown/murder suicide. Nobody died and I’m not in a mental ward so let this be a lesson to you, long walks help a frazzled mind.

skirt: Old Navy / shirt: ModCloth / shoes: Payless / necklace: Metropolitan Museum of Art / cuff: can’t recall

I'm glad you decided against the suicide.

yes, glad that you weren't admitted to the loony bin...that wouldn't be so fun. It's very important to take a step back when doing something that's very stressful..long walks and some wine are a must!

Oh gosh, this is going to be me next week, packing and moving and I'm not looking forward to it one but, just want to be settled in! Will take your walking advice and even better if I could take a stroll in your gorgeous skirt/shirt combo!

I. HATE. PACKING. And I would go insane if I didn't have periodic (read: LOTS and LOTS) of breaks.

LOVE that lace top, Courtney!

One thing I hate more than packing is UNpacking. Blah! Good idea and discipline in taking a walk. Also, this top is awesome!
