Happy New Year!

Wednesday, January 4, 2017 4:30 AM

Happy New Year! 
Yes, I know we are already four days into the new year, but this is my first post of 2017. 
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and holiday weekend.  I had a ton of family time and get togethers with friends.  

So resolutions, I am not making any this year.  In an attempt to not set myself up for failure,
I am making mindful decisions and consciously trying to make some changes but not calling them 'resolutions'.  I have learned I am more successful at attaining smaller more practical goals.  I have made a small fitness pact with a friend of mine so we can be held accountable. I will work on that right now, and perhaps a few more will trickle in through out the year.

Another goal I have is to redo my bedroom and with that purge my closet and get rid of what I don't want and get more things into my rotation.  If you knew how much stuff I have jam packed into this tiny space you would know what an undertaking it is.  Slowly but surely it will get done. I look forward to a clean, light, less cluttered space. 

I don't know about you, but this is the time of year I just wish to be cozy and comfy. A lot of black, and leggings and while today's look is exactly that, I will attempt to bring more color and structure into my winter wardrobe. We will see how that goes....

What resolutions or goals have you made?

xx, Elise

  3. I am also not making any resolutions this year! I feel like I absolutely jinxed myself last year, so this year I am keeping my head down and flying under the universal radar. You look great in this cute parka. I love how you styled it with the black boots.

  7. Happy new year, lovely! I like the idea of having a fitness pact with a friend. I always exercise more when I have a date. In terms of resolutions, I am a sugar addict. I'm trying to cut back!

    I'm obsessed with your boots!

  12. These are wonderful goals! I, too, think that resolutions are overwhelming & half the time, people don't end up sticking to them. Small goals ftw! Looking good, love! Wishing you the happiest new year! xx

  20. I haven't set a ton of resolutions... just want to try to eat healthier and I want to work towards a 2 hour or less half marathon time. :) I'm going to set one smaller goal for myself each month, too. I am all about the comfy and cozy clothes this time of year, too! Especially when it is SO cold! Love this all black look and your bag, too!

  23. I love that army green jacket.
    Great goal to purge your closet. I need to do that too. I just finished reading Marie Kondo's second book Spark Joy and I have a lot of clothes and accessories that don't spark joy that I need to get rid of. I just need to do it.
    Happy New Year to you and all the best to you for your 2017 goals.

  37. I cannot stress enough how wonderful purging is! I did it last year to our whole house and it felt so great! I think I'm going to do another round again soon! Good luck with yours! You've got this!!

  38. I think its great you haven't made any resolutions because you are right, a lot of times so much pressure is put on them that they often fail. Making the effort to tackle general goals like you are doing is a wonderful way to approach things!
