Where have I gone?

Or maybe this should be titled, "I really miss this blog" or
"My hair has grown back nicely". Either way, I'm doing well, my cancer is stable and I've had NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE (NED) since March 2015! I returned full time to work two years ago and I sadly find it a little harder to make the time for blogging. I took this picture with my computer and photo booth about three weeks ago to instagram (follow at @thriftedorscripted) my new favorite earrings from Stella and Dot!

I was able to do a fair amount of thrifting over the semester break and I will try and post a few quick pictures of the highlights! Be back soon!

This is for you, Lindsay

As all of my students know, I'm pretty passionate about teaching and biology and some of the others know that I'm also very excited about fashion and shopping for clothes. One of those students who never fails to make me feel special and enjoy the way I present myself through my fashion is Lindsay. She will see me and say, "I miss your blog plots" or "I love your outfit"  so this one is for you girl, thanks for the love, encouragement and support!

 Statement necklace: Stella and Dot on Striped shirt...a formula for me! Also my favorite Downing tote from J.Crew.

 A camel blazer, with a cool pinstriped lining over a black skirt, tights and Frye boots

But the best and finishing touch to this outfit is the blanket scarf. I picked up this super soft one at Forever21 for $12.

Wearing lately

Since I can't seem to put together a complete blog post highlighting an outfit here are some iphone shots of things I've been wearing lately!

Leather skirt, booties and stripes

The story at MTB

I want to be back blogging...

Thank you

Taken today in my office, LOOK at my hair!!!

There is a lot that I haven't shared here in a very long time...I was hoping to be back blogging full time this summer and I wasn't... and then my plans for a fall entry back into blogging have not really come together. All-in-all life is returning to normal, my hair is growing back...and I continue to wage battle with breast cancer. I'm finding a new normal and I have to accept where I am at. It is never easy and most days it all seems like a bad dream.

From the spring...

Thank you to so many of you for your continued words of encouragement and support, I need it!
