Brighten Up

21 January 2018

I’ve been told a time or two that January is the grayist month of the entire year- with a whopping 1.3 hours of sunlight per day. The Dutch don’t lie, it really is that dark (not to mention all that rain). 🙂

…so how does one cope until the sun decides to show her face again?

Buy brightly colored knitwear (OBVIOUSLY).

When I moved to the Netherlands I noticed that the Dutch seemed to converse about the weather often. Once I learned the language myself I realized that it was their go-to point of conversation. Rainy weather? conversation. Sunny weather? conversation. Boring weather? You better believe they’ve got something to say about that, too. Hits above 75 degrees? SCORCHING.

My friend sent me this link (which had me rolling), very accurate.
You might have to live in the Lowlands to appreciate, but none the less, here you go:

I used to make fun of how often the Dutch talk about that weather (who am I kidding, still do!) and now I realize the weather conversation is nearly impossible to avoid… well, if you can’t beat ’em…

New Year’s Resolutions

9 January 2018

Welcome to 2018, y’all.

I love the way a new year feels, full of possibility and new opportunity. You feel me?

Regardless if last year ended with you feeling down, unfulfilled or maybe even wanting more, there is a NEW YEAR that welcomes change, hope and fresh inspiration.

Some of my New Year’s Resolutions this year (in no particular order from relatively insignificant to significant):
-spend more time with the people I love
-find more time to give back
-get more organized
-spend less; buy better

I started a little early with one of my resolutions by (waiting and) buying this blazer. I had been on the hunt for some time and after a long search, finally found the right one on sale in my size and my Parisian dreams came true.
Style destiny.  🙂

I hope this year brings you all you’ve been hoping for, that your hard work pays off and that you find that perfect blazer hanging in your size (on sale – just waiting for you).
