Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We had a great Christmas – the kids were all home, and I got to spend Christmas with my sweet grandson for the first time in six years! I have a four day weekend coming up and I am really looking forward to having a restful weekend planning for the new year. I usually leave my Christmas decor up until the weekend after New Year’s because I just can’t bear to take it down. Once it’s down, I’m fine with it, and always look forward to having a clean, streamlined house with a little less clutter. How about you?
I’ll be doing some blog planning and goal setting this weekend. Then I am ready to tackle some organizing projects. Every year or two, I like to go through my entire house and organize and purge. I go through every closet, drawer and cabinet in my home. You’d be amazed as to what you find and what you forgot you had! I always feel the need to do this in January and in September. I’ve also got some indoor painting to do as well.
I don’t know about you, but in the dead of winter I crave color. So much of my wardrobe is black, white or grey, and sometimes it’s fun to add a bit of color to brighten things up. This sweater from Loft was a Christmas gift from my hubby. I picked it out, however. 🙂 It was purchased during one of Loft’s pre-Christmas sales, and I think I got it for 50% off. This color isn’t available anymore, but I think they still have a couple of other colors. Here is the link to the sweater.
I paired it with a pair of faded Levi jeans by Denizen from Target. They are linked here, and it looks like they are still available. They are reasonably priced at $26.99. I wore my cognac booties with this outfit. They aren’t available anymore, but I have linked some cute options below.
My fur handbag is a few years old from TJ Maxx. My earrings are by Alison & Aubrey. These were purchased last summer, and I don’t see the fuschia earrings online anymore, but I have linked the same ones in another color here. Here is another cute pair.
Happy New Year!
I’ll be back next week with a couple new outfit posts. I hope you have a happy, healthy, wonderful New Year!
