Hello 2017, hello fresh start! I hope your first few days of the year have been treating you well. Brian and I took some time off to spend our inaugural Christmas together as a married couple, and personally it’s been a little hard to get back into the swing of things. We spent the last few days on the couch watching the OA and extending our holiday diet for slightly too long, so as you can imagine I’ve been feeling a teeny bit lethargic. But here we are, and I’m excited to be up and running again!
When I recapped my style lessons for 2016 and resolutions for the upcoming year in this post, I wrote that I’d been feeling bored in my clothes and wanted to be more creatively inspired with my wardrobe again — while still taking steps to consume more thoughtfully. I’ve been wearing essentially every piece in this outfit all winter long, so it’s admittedly become pretty ho-hum for me. I recently pulled out this summer skirt (which I love so much I also have in white, and both happened to be second hand purchases) and styled in in place of my usual black denim for a change in silhouette. I doubled up on the tights and thermal tops underneath to make it more weather-appropriate, and altogether the change was just enough to feel fresh and easy, and it helped inject a dose of inspiration to my daily dressing.
