What I'm wearing:
*John and Jen "Manon" Sweater in Grey
*Wisconsin Badgers T-shirt (maybe from UO?)
*Lululemon Will Pant in Black Slub Denim
*Off 5th Black Leather Boots
Happy New Year! This is actually what I wore on the first day of 2012, but I've been enjoying my holiday break and was too lazy to upload photos! The weather was gorgeous out and I wanted a chance to wear some new purchases from the holidays. Loved that a chunky sweater, a nice pair of boots & bag can dress up even wearing yoga pants and a t-shirt. The boots & bag have got to be my favorite new closet additions. Snapped up the boots heavily reduced at Off 5th back home, and I haven't been able to stop wearing them since. They are incredibly comfortable and I really needed a new sturdy pair of simple black boots. After coveting (and borrowing) my sister's oversized YSL Muse, I am excited to have one of my own. On me the regular size is perfect, and I love patent leather and think that it's so fun. You'll be seeing plenty of the bag on this blog.
My NYE manicure, OPI Mad as a Hatter layered over Essie Over the Edge. Crazy glittery and a major pain to get off but I love it.
K & I on NYE! Wish you could see the dress better, it is Rachel Rachel Roy and was a shimmery blue/black (see it in a different colorway here)
A quick snap of the delicious spread at a New Year's dinner with college girlfriends. Based it around meatballs (they were homemade and amazing!) but we had some other goodies too.
After indulging for the long holiday break (I did manage to squeeze in a few runs at home but have totally slacked lately), I've decided that I really need to work on my new year's resolutions starting ASAP. I'm hoping that putting them on this blog will help reinforce my yearlong effort to be successful at achieving the goals that I set for myself. So I am attempting to keep them realistic and achievable, but still striving for something more.
In 2012... I will:
- train for & complete a half-marathon
- reduce my material consumption
- be more realistic about my lifestyle's wardrobe needs and minimize unnecessary impulse purchases
- sort through my clothes and donate or sell items that don't fit or I don't love
- make a bigger effort to plan out meals/food purchases in order to make sure I don't end up throwing out food that doesn't get eaten/goes bad
- try to be a more considerate & compassionate person
