Hi Everyone — Happy Sunday! Are we seriously on week NINEEEE! Jeez louise! I have to admit, this week was a stressful one for me. Just a LOT going on + I pushed myself a little too hard. Then the horrific madness in Paris and some upsetting family news made for a somber weekend to top it all off. It was just an emotionally draining week.

Due to all of the above, I just didn’t put in as much effort into my outfits as I normally would. But I’m only human + we all have off weeks. We all go through stressful, emotional, high, and low times, and  what you’re wearing can seem like the least important thing in the world. Regardless, I do enjoy this series, and am determined to keep it up, so I pulled this post together for you guys.

In case you missed it, here's a sneak peek of my looks from week 8!

PHEW! And there you have it. What a week. I hope you enjoyed my less than exciting looks + the messy bun overload lol. 😉

Onto a fun note. I want to thank everyone who took my #WIWTWABChallenge 🙂

I had some people send me their OOTD’s privately, some friends/co-workers shared with me in person or via text, and some of you wrote awesome posts that I really had so much fun reading. 🙂 Take a peek at a couple of the beauties who shared their outfits for the week…

The adorable Jamie who blogs over at The Grady Bunch! Take a peek at her blog, and read her whole post here!

All of you ladies are honestly the best. I hope you had as much fun documenting + blogging about your OOTD’s as I did reading them! If you shared a pic or post for this challenge that I missed, leave me a link to it below! 🙂

With that said, I think I’m going to keep this challenge open indefinitely! If you feel up for it one day/week, give the #WIWTWABChallenge a try. I know you’ve got it in you!

I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend + continue to keep everyone in France…and around the world, in your thoughts + prayers.
