Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 1

Happy Friday, friends! I’ve spent the majority of this week equally parts overwhelmed and motivated. (You can read more about how I was putting a little too much pressure on myself here.) I’m all for fresh starts and kicking the year off on a high note, but it can definitely be an overwhelming feeling at times. I want to work out and get back in shape (but am still battling this damn flu aftermath…), I want to crank out a ton of great content for you on the blog, I want to keep bettering myself and adopting new habits, I want to travel and explore, I want to establish new routines… I want to do it ALL!

The Story of the Silver Dress

‘Tis the week for silver dresses apparently! (Remember this dress I posted on Tuesday?) Earlier in December, I bought this Leith dress for New Year’s Eve… Under $100, something sparkly and fun, long sleeves… Everything I wanted in a New Year’s Eve dress, and the bell sleeves were just an added bonus. As you’ve probably figured out by now, I don’t have my photographer on hand everyday… I set aside outfits that I plan to wear to an upcoming event or have already worn out and about and then shoot them with Melissa during the few hour chunks I have her scheduled each week.

Wellness Wednesday: Accountability

Accountability is something that’s been on my mind a lot lately. We all know that if we say we are going to do something, we should do it. But that’s not always the case, am I right? One of my goals in this coming year is to hold myself more accountable. (Side note: I’ll be sharing some of my 2018 goals soon! I really do love this time of year… I’m always excited for a fresh start, the reminder to reflect on how the past year went, and do a little planning for the new year ahead.)

Kate Spade Dress + When Things Don’t Go According to Plan

Happy New Year! While I had every intention of sharing a few sparkly ensembles before the new year, life got in the way last week. In fact, nothing has really gone “according to plan” these last few weeks and it’s been an excellent lesson(s) in something that I’ve been trying to work on over the last few months — letting go of the expectations and going with the flow.

Friday Finds || Weeks 50 & 51

Happy Friday! I’m sure it’s been a busy week gearing up for the holidays ahead. With last minute shopping, wrapping gifts, preparing to travel, prepping for guests, tying up loose ends at work before time off… This week can be a lot to handle! (At least it was for me.) I actually had to “take the day off” yesterday… I didn’t open my inbox or even touch my computer all day. (Until I had to finish this post at 1am, haha.) I felt a little guilty, but I couldn’t tell you the last time that happened and it was a much-needed breather. So if you’re in a similar boat right now, don’t be afraid to take some time for yourself!
