Jan 31

Well did January just fly by for anyone else? At the beginning of the month I wrote this post about how I’m creating my own sunshine this Winter. And while it’s been far from perfect, a few wins (and a few learnings!) have made a world of difference.

I committed to taking Friday’s to decorate and organize the house, staring with the kids bathroom (read about it here!) – wearing these overalls has made it even that much more enjoyable. Waylon’s Serena & Lily “big boy bed” came – see it here – and it’s STUNNING (I want to steal it) This LED nail polish has been an unexpected highlight. I found the best part of upgrading my pajama game is feeling happy and inspired in the morning. And I read this book from Oprah’s Book Club which was at times hard to digest but at others deeply moving and inspirational. One thing I didn’t do was use my sauna blanket or take a solo night for myself, so those are top on my list for next month.

So no matter where you’re at with New Years intentions, just keep going and keep adjusting. You got this.

Madewell 90’s Straight Leg Utility Pant – Filled a gap in my closet this month with these and these … and you guys loved them as much as I do!

Nike Air Max Sneakers – you guys, they have denim on them! And the matching shoelaces to the tongue are a nice touch. Oh, and they’re COMFORTABLE. I also have them in this colorway.

Heart Sweater – Valentine’s Day heart sweater that doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day Heart Sweater (aka – I’ll be wearing it wayyyy past Feb 14th)

Borg Fleece Jacket This is the update colorway of the green one I bought last Fall. Wear it now and right into Spring

One Piece Swim – The deep V combined with the flutter sleeves AND the gorgeous print makes this one stand out from the crowd. This one is also on my wish list.

My Favorite Purchases Of The Month

Madewell 90’s Straight Leg Utility Pant – same as your favorite above! We’re on the same page 🙂

Nike Blazer High Top Sneakers – When the snow isn’t too bad I’ve been wearing these as an alternative to my chelsea boots. Bonus – warm ankles! I pair them with these socks. Here are 4 options for tying them up and here is the full sneaker edit.

Warby Parker Glasses – I haven’t taken the time to get new glasses in YEARS and was kind of dreading it. But I took my prescription into the store and 20 minutes later my glasses were ordered! And 2 weeks later they were at my house. I’m a BIG fan.

Heart Earrings – I’ve been wearing this pair on repeat all month so I added these red studs and these double hearts to my jewelry box. Another subtle nod to Valentine’s Day that I’ll be wearing all year.

Printfresh Pajama Set – Beautiful and comfortable pajamas to upgrade my 8 hours and wake up happy and refreshed.

Gucci Flora Perfume – I already had this scent and added this one from the same collection. These are the only 2 bottles of perfume I own and I’m obsessed.

Personalized Kids Mailbox – I am really impressed with the quality on these! The kids are in LOVE. And something they’ll play with all year, not just for Valentine’s Day.
