Casual Yet Classy Outfit / Blog Trouble?!

   In case you haven't noticed (which you probably didn't, since I often have trouble getting more than one post out per week ;) ), my weekly blogging goal is to do one outfit post and one topic post each week. This is my outfit post for the week, but it includes another topic as well. The latter is something that I wish didn't have to be here, but frankly, I'm desperate for some answers! Blogger has been acting rather peculiar lately, as well as the internet in general. That being said, let's start out with the fun stuff...


...such as this outfit! Monday was a day of running a couple of errands and relaxing at home. Even though I was wearing comfy jeans, Converse, and a long-sleeved knit t-shirt, the outfit was dressed up a little bit with the jacket I purchased during last month's thrift store expedition . I had my doubts about how the jacket would look with such casual pieces, but I think the effect was rewarding. The accessory of the day was my "P" pendant worn with a black ribbon.

 
 
   Truth be told, I wore my black coat over the outfit when I went out to run errands that day. The weather has been about as cold as it gets around here. The pond and bird bath (above) in our backyard have been covered with a layer of ice for several days. On Saturday, it even snowed for a few minutes, which is a rare sight on the coast!
    Now for the bad news. For that past week or so, I've been getting error messages about a problem with my module file every time I get onto Blogger. They don't actually prevent me from doing anything, but I know that something is wrong.  The buttons that are normally orange (such as the "publish" button) are only outlined in orange. Also, I only got a fraction of page views after my latest post than I normally do after publishing a new post. Therefore, I'm wondering if there are some visibility issues. A few people did see it, so it could have just been a coincidence, but I feel that there is some sort of problem. In addition to this, I created a Facebook page for Sunday Best, and put up my last post as a status on the page. Unfortunately, that didn't show up at all! Of course, that could just be a Facebook problem. Do any of you have suggestions? Have my fellow bloggers experienced these issues?
  Before closing, I have a bit of good news to share. I bought brown boots! Because of a defect, I got them at a discount (more on that later). They should coordinate well with outfits when the black ones don't quite make the cut. ;) Most likely, they will make an appearance here quite soon, what with all the Christmas festivities (and my birthday) that I will be dressing up for. Starting tomorrow, life is going to get extremely busy for me, but it will be full of fun! :)
 
"Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints! For the Lord preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person. Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you
who hope in the Lord."
~Psalm 34:23-24

  2. Super cute Paige, I love the jacket! :) I have been in search of some brown boots also! Can't wait to see the style that you found!

    We have not had any problems with our blog- besides that our dashboard has not been loading right away lately.Nothing seems out of place while we view your blog though.
    How stressful! Sorry, I hope it gets back to normal!

    love,
    Cassie

  3. Thank you Cassie! :)
    I'm glad you girls haven't had any problems. :) I'm still getting the error messages, but as it turns out, there hasn't been a problem with this post. I'm getting the usual amount of page views and it showed up on Facebook when I posted it. Phew! Whatever was going on seems to have resolved itself.

  4. Hello Paige!
    I wanted to let you know-I have the exact same problem with my blogger that you are having!!! I'm not hindered in my blogging, but I get that error message about my module file (whatever that is!) every time I go onto blogger. The buttons are outlined in orange too. I haven't investigated the problem as its only been an annoyance, not an actual problem. My posting and all that haven't been hindered. I would love to fix the error, though. If you come up with a solution, I'd love to hear it! I'll tell you if I can fix mine as well.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Natalie! Thanks for the comment.
      Oh, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem! It doesn't seem to limit my audience any more (that may have been just a coincidence), but I haven't been able to customize fonts and such.
      If I find out what's going on, I'll let you know! :)
