WARDROBE VIBRATIONS

I’ve always been a fan of crop tops, but with my pale belly, I’m reluctant to go full on crop until the appropriate spring weather has set in. In the meantime, I decided to give my high waisted shorts some love and pair my baby pink Forever 21 crop top with them. I’ve been in a wardrobe rut lately, I don’t know what it is, I think it has something to do with how pale I am, but this outfit has certainly sparked some inspiration and I’m already seeking out some necessary spring wardrobe essentials. I watched Clueless over the weekend and was reminded that it’s important to have fun with your outfits and use them as your main source of self-expression. I talk about this all the time, but I can’t say I always practice what I preach. Work is…work and sometimes it’s more important for me to feel comfortable than it is for me to think about what outfit I’m going to feel the most “me” in, or how the world is perceiving me based on my standard skinny jeans and black top. This may not be the best approach, and I should be a bit more conscious of how I dress for work. Because it’s true, when you’re dressed in something you LOVE it shows. It shows in every aspect of your life; in your work you may feel more confident and lead your team into an amazing brainstorm session, socially you may be more outgoing and spontaneous, inviting new friends into your circle. The vibration you send out to the universe comes back to you—make it a good one.

POST HOLIDAY BLUES PONCHO

The holidays are over and like most, I’m struggling to get back into a routine and am absolutely DREADING Monday. I spent the holidays at home in New Jersey and had a wonderful time surrounded by my amazing family and delicious food. It’s funny because the whole time I was home I found myself complaining about how cold it was when in reality it only felt so cold because we’ve been experiencing abnormally warm winter days. I found immediate comfort in my oversized blanket poncho and not only did it keep me warm and cozy, but it hid my holiday bloat.  I even decided to  give my black and denim pants a rest and threw on my navy high-waisted shorts. Ok, well If I’m being honest, the main reason I decided to don some shorts was because I wanted to show off my brand new black suede over-the-knee boots. They are my favorite present from Santa this Christmas and I’ve been wearing them with EVERYTHING. At first, I was concerned about over the knee suede boots being too tight around the calves, but these fit perfectly and even have a little stretch in them. I think as long as I have an oversized blanket wrapped around me and get to spend time with family, this winter won’t be so bad.
