There's Never A Better Time

It's here, that bittersweet time where we revel in the weekend glory after the holidays, only to be reminded that we are now standing in the shadow of the new year! There is so much to look forward to! Say goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015! As you're anchoring in for a few more days of rest and togetherness with family and friends and getting ready to pack up your gifts and head home, I figured you could check in for one more look. While everyone was home for the holidays, bundled up and cozy next to the fire enjoying their white Christmas, I was enjoying white sand beaches! 

During this eventful last week between Christmas and New Year's, many of us find ourselves party-hopping, panic-shopping, or perhaps just sleeping in. Some do all three in one day, given there is so little time to do so much. There's never a better time than a new year to refresh your style! A clean slate will surely fulfill your cravings for a new look and a new start for the New Year! Even if you're just looking to make a small change, there's still plenty of room for inspiration.

To help along with that small leap, many find comfort in feasting, fireworks and the fickle New Year's resolution. Whether it's a change in diet, love, lifestyle or wardrobe, a big resolution is often difficult to keep, so the best one to make this year is to just keep changing, at least in terms of style. As January sets in, take the time to sort through your coset: keep the staples, get rid of old baggage, and hold on to promising pieces. In the spirit of frugality, there is no need to throw away everything! Pieces I'll be keeping are like the ones I'm wearing above: denim cutoffs never get old, necklaces are my go-to accessories and if you can use one piece in multiple ways, it's a keeper! The best thing about short tight dresses (shown below) is you can wear them tucked into shorts (shown above), skirts or pants!!

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
