Happy 2017 everyone!! Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA, but I have had so much family stuff going on through the holidays and I’ve really been enjoying spending time with my hubs, kids, and friends. Sometimes you just have to take a break and chillax. One of my 2017 goals is to not rush, or overwhelm myself. If I feel like I don’t have good content to put out to all of you then I will wait on writing a new blog post. If I’m tired and feel like just drinking wine and watching TV rather than taking a new photo and posting, then that photo can wait for another day haha. We are here on this planet to live life and enjoy every amazing moment we are given, so social media can sometimes just take a back seat to living our wonderful lives.
Lipstick – YSL #003 Ultimate Beige
Here is a super cute casual outfit that you could wear on the weekend, or for a casual Friday at the office. I’ve never been one to mix brown and black, but I really love mixing and matching now and camel on black is such a chic neutral combo. This look is so comfortable with the loose boyfriend cardi and leggings. Plus these boots are warm with shearling on the inside and a chunky heel for comfortable walking. These are such a fancy UGG boot and water resistant, so a closet staple.
So everyone uses the start of a new year to set some new goals. I definitely wanted to have 2017 be a year that I be a bit more frugal and practical because I am such an avid shopper, but then I tend to have too many items and things go to waste. So….here is my MAJOR goal for 2017. ZERO shopping!!! (Minus the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, that’s just too good a deal for the year to pass up LOL.) Yes you heard me right no shopping for clothing, shoes, or accessories. Instead, I am going to shop my own closet for 2017. I have 3 closets in my house plus two dressers. I have probably 100 pairs of shoes a whole shelf unit of purses, and an overflowing jewelry box. Do I really need to shop in order to have something cute to wear?? No I don’t, even though most of us women look in our closets and think to ourselves, “Man I have nothing to wear.” I have clothes in my closet that I have had for 6 months still with tags on them. #fashionbloggerproblems I don’t want my blog to be an excuse for me to spend unnecessary money, or for women to think they need to be constantly spending money in a keep up with the Joneses kind of craze. I plan on re-wearing the clothing in my closet and coming up with new combinations. So here is my financial tip…I am challenging all of you to also do less spending, so that you can travel more, or save more. I am challenging all of you to re-work your closet for at least 30 days. Think of it as a game with a different theme daily for ways to wear items. Perhaps one day you wear a bright color on top of neutrals, or mix two patterns you haven’t mixed before. I wonder if it will become as addicting to you as it is to me. Right now I can’t even get myself to shop because I’m having so much fun trying to figure out new and interesting outfits out of my own closet boutique.
I would love to hear from you for any outfit themes that you think of. Also, have any of you tried a challenge like this before?
Happy Friday! XoXo
