During my wonderful holiday vacation, Josh and I visited his aunt and uncle in VA and enjoyed some mild winter weather. Don’t worry it was still sweater weather, but that’s all you needed–just a sweater. I, like most people, love a good cozy sweatshirt that I can live in, but they’re not always socially acceptable (especially for holiday festivities). I probably have one of the largest sweater collections, mostly because I can’t get rid of them, but this Willow Fair Isle fringe cardigan from J.Jill is definitely a knit I will never be able to part with. I love the fringe details and jacquard-knit pattern. It’s so unique and reminds me of a piece I would see at a specialty boutique: one of a kind. I love that I can wear it with black pants and a sleek black top and also dress it down with loose fitted leggings and a comfy tee. Now that I’m back in Boston, I wish this could be my only winter coat.

Cold winter weather stay away!

Despite the fact that my tan has been lacking this summer, I seem to have been collecting white tops. I love white, even if I’m not a bronzed goddess, white is refreshing, easy and you can’t go wrong. This Banana Republic fringe top was on sale, (it comes in black too!) as you can see it’s not fitted, more boxy but it still manages to look flattering on. It can be worn with nearly anything, skirts, shorts, and jeans you can’t really go wrong. My chambray light blue J. Crew shorts are old, but they’re classic and I’ve provided a link of a similar pair. I have some time off before I make my move, so I hope to work on my tan while I still can. More importantly with this free time I’ve also been journaling quite a bit as well as spending quality time with family. It’s amazing how much clarity you get when you just talk or write out what you’re thinking, it’s really cathartic. If you’re in a place of transition, prepping for a big test or just experiencing the self-created stress of life, take a minute to just write down what it is your thinking. No matter what it is just write it out, you’ll see how crazy you are when you see on paper the little things that are stressing you out, or even better you could experience a breakthrough with something that’s been troubling you. Take this week to just write out what you’re thinking,  for 5 minutes a day and you’ll be amazed at how much you can learn and how many of your problems will be solved by just taking time to listen to yourself.
