I am truly shocked by how fast this summer is going. I can hardly believe that we are now half way through July – but I will admit that I am looking forward to the cool weather again. Last week, a friend and I ventured out to Hawk Ridge Winery which is located in Watertown, CT. As soon as we made the plans I could hardly contain my excitement, because 1. I have never been and 2. it is always nice to catch up and spend some time with friends!
When it comes to summer, I find that it is the best time to showcase my more playful side with color and patterns. I tend to keep my outfits simple but I love to accessorize with statement bags. Again this summer I am all about the straw bags, wicker bags, and colorful embroidered bags that truly allow my summer outfits to POP!
It has been a hot minute since I lasted posted on the blog and I am really excited to get back to it! Now that we are officially entering the summer months, I have been building my wardrobe with the essential pieces that I know will be my go-to’s. In the past, I have always stuck to the simple jeans, tee, sneakers or flats rotation for the summer. I would always feel like that would be a safe bet for me as I would always struggle with what to wear.
Although winter is ending and spring will soon be in sight, I can finally say that I have cultivated a good amount of skincare products that I have been loving and using religiously throughout the past winter months.
To me, there is no better feeling than picking up a new book to read and finishing it. Reading makes me feel more accomplished and more relaxed. Now that it is a new year, I set myself goal of reading at least 30 books! It has been a while since I read that many in a year and I hope that I can reach that goal or even more.
Apparently the ground hog saw its shadow… or is it that it didn’t? I always get confused, either way it is said that we are to be faced with another six weeks of winter. I don’t know about you, but when winter feels like it is dragging on and on, I find it harder to come up with chic winter looks. I have been wearing the same type of outfit for the past few weeks and I am starting to get bored. I figured that since we are still in it for the long haul why not gather some inspo!
Is it just me or are you still slightly in the Holiday spirit? The seasons go so fast before I feel like I can fully enjoy it. I shot this look back in November thinking that it would go up before the Holiday’s, but it certainly was not the case.
Happy New Year! It is crazy how fast 2017 has gone by, I truly hope that this year will be the year that all your goals and dreams can be met! I haven’t made any resolutions for this year yet only because in the past I felt like I made goals that were aspiration oriented versus goal oriented so I felt like I wasn’t achieving much. I felt less organized and more discouraged, so this year I am working on creating more goal oriented resolutions that I know will be more satisfying by the end of the year. Did you make a list of resolutions for this year?
Christmas is exactly one week away! Luckily this year I have completed my Christmas shopping, but if you are still looking for some last minute gifts, here are some ideas!
Happy Thanksgiving! Each month that goes by the anticipation for the holidays build. These last two months are my favorite for various reasons. The first reason is dressing up! Can you blame a girl for wanting to feel fancy all the time?! The second reason is watching Christmas movies and the feeling of relaxing. My last reason is togetherness. The holidays are the time where family and friends come together and I know that I get really excited to spend the day with family and friends.
