Is it Friday already? Is this the last weekend before Christmas? I just looked at the calendar and had a small shock when I realized that it would be a whole new year two weeks from today! Normally at this time of the year, I am busy trying to figure out what my word for 2021 will be. But, the only word that comes to mind after the year that we have had is “survive.” But, I don’t want only to survive; I want to THRIVE. So, it looks like my word for 2021 has been chosen.
I think that “survive” might have been 2020’s word of the year, and I would hate to use a word twice in a row. I have mixed feelings about this year’s ending. I am so ready to end this year, but I am anxious about what 2021 will bring. 2020 started with such hope and promise, and everyone talked about 2020 being the year for VISION. Instead, we were all blinded by a pandemic that will go down in history as one of the worst years on record. Can we put 2020 behind us and go on to THRIVE in 2021? I sure hope so, but I guess only time will tell. Here is to the end of 2020, the beginning of 2021, and the hope of a better year! 🍾 🥂
I started this outfit with a basic sweater that I just ordered. Everyone needs a basic sweater for the winter months. This sweater is in the color Ecru, which is described as a yellowish-gray color. Huh? I don’t see yellow or gray in this top, but I am no expert. This looks like an off white, winter white, or ivory, or maybe a mixture of all of them. I know that it is a gorgeous neutral color that can be worn with anything. I am wearing a size 1 in this top.
I love this tweed plaid blazer from Ann Taylor Factory. The blazer looks fantastic with a pair of jeans, but it would look equally great with a skirt. I love the colors in this blazer; it is perfect for wearing in the fall and winter months. Plus, I can see myself wearing this some in early spring. I am wearing a size 12 in the blazer, and I think that it fits great.
I have to admit; these have to be the best-looking jeans that I’ve seen for under $30.00. I do love dark wash bootcut jeans, and this pair by Free Assembly is great. They fit nicely, they look great, and they are super affordable. These are a mid-rise pair of jeans, and they have a 32″ inseam. For your information, I am 5’6″ tall, and I am wearing my usual size 10, and they fit great. Here are a few more bootcut jeans options for you just in case your size is sold out.
The pointy-toe Lex bootie is the perfect neutral. I love the chunky 3 1/2″ block heel that makes the boot very stable to walk in. These boots run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9. I am wearing the Chestnut suede color, but these ankle boots also come in black leather. I love a pointy-toe shoe since it elongates your leg and makes you look tall and thin. Woohoo! I love looking tall and thin!
Have you given any thought to your word for 2021? I know what words most of us would use for 2020, but this is a G-rated blog and we can’t be posting those. Lol!
