tied up

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all were able to celebrate this special time of year with loved ones nearby, and maybe a glass, or two of bubbly! I am actually still feeling the effects of a mimosa fueled brunch yesterday and cannot seem to properly function- really a great way to start the year by the way (sarcasm in voice)! With the mimosa juice running wildly through me and my friends' veins all of us brunch guests decided it fitting to continue the mimosa tradition every Sunday-obviously I'm the only one who works on Mondays and therefore cannot hang like I used to with my much cooler friends!

As for resolutions, I have amounted several which include both fashion and non. Fashion-wise I want to wear my Sunday best- on Wednesday, meaning sequin blazer and sweat pants for happy hour, feather collar and velvet leggings to shop a drugstore; I pretty much want to dress without restrictions and be a bit more daring with my choices- if that is even possible. Regular everyday resolutions include: living in the present, not dwelling on the past or fretting about the future- within reason of course. And to end my overindulgent relationship with the ubiquitous snooze button, and once and for all wake up when my damn alarm clock goes off- the first time! Does anyone else have an unhealthy relationship with their alarm clock? What are your resolutions..do tell!

Pictures below are from a recent trip to Napa. I couldn't have survived the frigid temps without my trusty scarf, it looks great tied up any which way, and I love that sweet iridecent gray color!

  2. Your fashion related resolution is sort of mine too - I sometimes get so conscious about dressing up for normal everyday things (going to the store quickly, going to class, etc.) But I should really start just dressing how I want to dress, just because I want to and not because I think it was appropriate.

    I love your scarf!!
