The End is Near

I, for one, am praying that scarf season is ends very soon.  I'm ready to shut the door to my coat closet and not open it again for another 6 months.  I do love a good blanket scarf, but good grief I am sick of wearing them.  I'm sure in a few months I'll be cursing the heat and dying for the days of layers, but for now I am anxious for warmth!

The Bell Curves

One trend that I could really get behind was billowy bell sleeves.  Knowing that this would quickly come and go I only allowed myself to snag one bell sleeved top on super sale last year.  Aside from one major fail when I wore this to a cooking class in Tuscany and basically dipped the sleeves into marinara and pasta flour this top has been a major win for me.  I  typically try to steer clear of trends I see most folks have (pass on the off the shoulder ruffle tops!) I am happy with these bad boys!

Also, shout out the best mama in the world who is celebrating a birthday today!  I love you!

The Purge

I am starting to get the urge to purge!  I have always loved doing the 30 for 30 Challenges, and I think it's about time for a new round.  I have realized how much clothing I own and how little of it I wear.  Whether it's something I bought years ago and just doesn't fit right or doesn't fit my style anymore I probably wear about 30% of my clothing.  I plan to start with a 30 for 30 and then slowly add things that I really love back into the mix.  

I live in a house built in the early 40s and closet space in nearly nil.  I cram everything I own into 4 separate closets and think that I could fit everything into one if I tried.  Anyone else feeling the need to do a closet purge and really focus on what we love?  Has anyone ever done it before?  I'd love to hear your story!

pantˌso͞ot

pant·suit
(noun)
a pair of pants and a matching jacket worn by women

If it's good enough for Hillary it's good enough for me.  While I loved my girl rocking them in every color imaginable I never thought of getting one for myself until I ran across this little number recently.  It's so not me, but it weirdly called to me and found its way back into my closet.   I told you recently that my style is evolving pretty quickly and this is definitely out of my typical comfort zone.  I am totally digging the all black aesthetic though, and now that I've got the gear I might as well start the Kinsey 2020 Campaign: Make Pantsuits Great Again!

Witchy Woman

My style in 2017 has been darker, more edgy with a focus on casual.  I am less likely to grab my high heels or a nice dress in favor for some shredded jeans and leather jacket.  I can't tell if my style is naturally evolving or if I am just getting too old for that sh*t.  Next stop is Velcro Shoesville!  For now this all black look (featuring my new favorite jacket from a little boutique in Crawfordsville, IN) will suffice.

No Jacket Required

The weather around here has been crazy town this week!  It was in the 60s, which for the Midwest is practically unheard of in January!  I took full advantage of this and pretended it was fall again.  I returned to my go to color combo of navy and olive with a little splash of red.  This ensemble got me through a date day with my honey without needing to break out the winter coat I stashed in the car.  A girl could get used to this!
