How many of you made a resolution this year? How many of you have already broken that resolution? Lol! So far, I am still doing good with the few that I made, and knock on wood, it has been easy so far. I didn’t make any over the top resolutions because I think that baby steps work best. So, my major resolutions have been…
to start my day with my morning devotion before I open my computer. If I open the computer first, then I go down a rabbit hole, and it takes me hours to get back on track. Another resolution was to not eat any sweets in the month of January. This is pretty major since I have been living on sweets since Halloween. Also, I have decided to only drink water or black coffee (yuck) in January to get away from processed sugar and artificial sweeteners. I am not a fan of water, so this is probably the biggest challenge for me this month.
Joe and I are also going to try and sit down every Sunday and make out a menu for the entire week. Then, I go online and make a grocery store order for the items that I need, and go and pick them up on Monday. Joe was in heaven at the thought of this new development. He loved getting to pick out what he wants to eat for the week, and I love knowing ahead of time what I have to cook. Wow, who knew that getting organized would make everyone happy?
I had several of you message me that you would like to see a work outfit. Since I went in to work several days last week, I decided to style a couple of work styles that will also work for date night, church, or any kind of dressier place that you might need to go. I love this look, and I love how comfortable it is to wear.
I am wearing a black cashmere turtleneck sweater that I wore earlier (here) with a pair of taupe corduroy pants, and it looked great in the casual setting. This sweater has been on sale for a while, so the sizes are probably getting limited. I am wearing a size medium in this sweater and I love the way that it fits me.
I love adding a POP of color, and red is one of my favorite colors to add to a black and white outfit. This waterfall cardigan is one that I bought from White House Black Market, but this one is only available in XXS and XS. I did find some similar ones, especially the one by Anne Klein, and I’ll link those below. I am wearing a medium in this sweater which fits great.
These dress pants are pretty dang awesome. I was surprised that I liked them as much as I did when I put them on, but I liked the weight of these pants and the large straight legs. I wasn’t a big fan of how high waisted they were, they came all the way up to my ribs. These pants have been on a Final Sale, so they are very limited in size. The only size left in them is size 18.
The Jack Multi-Strand necklace that I am wearing is turned around backward. The front side of this necklace actually has multi-colored crystals, but by turning it around to the backside, I will be able to wear it all year long. It is a very versatile piece because of this feature. I also added the Ryder Statement earrings and the Sophee small heart necklace to my look. I bought the small heart necklace for both of my granddaughters for Christmas, but it would also make a fabulous Valentine’s Day gift. ❤️️
Do you set goals at the beginning of the year? I am doing this for myself in several areas such as spiritually, health and fitness, business, and even in my relationships. I want to be the best person that I can be, so I am always looking for ways to improve.
