Happy New Year, loves! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA lately…my hubby started a new job in September and we have been traveling back and forth from Charleston to our hometown (we’re baaaaaaack) for house hunting, packing, and preparing for our move. After three months of living out of boxes and hustling to sell our house…POOF! We sold our old house and then closed on our new home the Tuesday before Christmas. Great timing!!!! Notttttttttt…but the important thing is that 1. we survived and 2. we are happy, healthy, motivated, and ready for our new adventure! There’s nothing like a clean slate to really get priorities in order. It was a fantastic time during our move to purge my closet and assess winter necessities. Do you get the itch to purge, rearrange, and organize things in your home? I always try go through my home before Christmas to donate to those in need and also start the new year off with less clutter and a fresh perspective. This time of year, I also find myself sometimes in a fashion rut…organizing my closet can be instant inspiration to style new pieces together and then purchase whatever else I need to add to my collection. Right now is a perfect opportunity to shop for whatever else you may need for your cold-weather wardrobe since retail stores are about to make the seasonal switch to spring. There are LOTS of after Christmas/New Year’s sales currently running to get winter inventory OUT. Good news for us!
Behold the Monthly E D I T for January. I’ve styled this look so that rich hues pop from grounded neutral tones. I consider all these pieces closet staples, seeing as you can mix and match all of these items individually with numerous looks for different occasions. There’s a slight boho vibe with the wide flares and floral blouse, but elevated to today’s trends with the maize and python Vera Bradley crossbody and a modern twist with accessories. I’m a bit obsessed with this crossbody bag and mayyyy have ordered it myself…late Christmas gift to me, from me?!? Who can resist when it’s 50% off making it only $60! Several of these items are on sale right now, so I’ve listed them below. You can shop the entire look in the scroll box under the picture.
