We have been experiencing some major rainy/gloomy weather in Dallas this week and my mood has taken a major hit. I don’t know if anyone feels this way, but January has been one super long month and I am ready for it to be over. Not that I want to wish away the days, but I think I always put too much pressure on myself to be perfect and to think I can meet all my goals in just the first 4 weeks of the year. This month is always a reset, a fresh start but I seem to add too much to my plate and it never ends well. For the next two weeks, I decided to throw my yearly goals aside and try to focus on what is happening in this moment.
Today, I woke up with a smile on my face and the sun starting to shine through our window. It’s going to be a great Friday!
Maybe it’s the new year or the weather here in Dallas, but lately I am only inspired the classic pieces in my closet. This means, it’s time to do another closet clean out. The idea of purging isn’t necessarily to create room for new items (however this is always a plus), but more about only having things in your closet that make you feel good on the inside and out. For me, this means finding easy outfits in my favorite quality fabrics and colors.
For the last seven years, we have been coming to my husband’s favorite place: Vail, Colorado. He has been visiting this little mountain town since he was just a little boy and introduced me to this special place one summer when we were driving my car from Scottsdale back to college. There is something so charming and extremely special about this place. This is the place where we fell in love and where I realized I wanted to marry this boy. As the years pass and the number of visits climb, I fall a little bit more in love with this town.
We made it home last night for our mountain getaway and I am feeling refreshed (and maybe a little sore). There is something reinvigorating about the crisp mountain air that makes you feel just a little more alive. My mind just opened up while I was cruising down those fresh pillows of snow. For the first time, I finally allowed myself to feel a little out of control. What I realized is something magical happens with you let your guard down a little.
Since I am currently in a snowglobe, I thought it was only fitting for today’s Style Details to be all about those warm weather must-haves. I have to say it can be a little tough to look cute when it is FREEZING outside. During my time living in the midwest, I collected a few key pieces to keep warm and still look chic.
Currently, I am bundled up by the fire in a cozy turtleneck watching the snow fall outside. We are still in Vail and having such a fun time. If I wasn’t missing the pups like crazy, I could really stay here forever. I love the snow filled streets, quaint restaurants and of course, skiing.
