Ok, now I was a bit selfish to do this. January is a month of paying back all your Christmas shopping bills and trying to return all the gifts that you didn’t like. I am on the same boat with you all. But while that is happening, we also want to wear something new and refreshing because we want to start the year with a good note, and mostly want to rediscover ourselves.
I have to say that nothing excites me more than being in a snowy winter! The crisp snow and the feeling of touching that powdery glow! Even though I does not snow in the Bay Area, a girl needs to still dream doesn’t she! And Snow is what I dream of in winter, even though I technically freeze to death in it.
It actually bothered me when one of my colleague complimented me that I barely repeat any of my clothes for weeks. In any other given day, I would have been ecstatic about it, but it kind of annoyed or more so made me uncomfortable. I dwindled on the fact that why is it that the idea that someone noticed my style was not that impressive, but more so someone pointing out the fact that I don’t repeat my clothes was of utmost concern. This was the tipping point in my fashion life ( I often consider that to be different than my role as a mother and as a wife which is I guess a true essence of a woman!).
As we all head to a new year with new beginnings, new hope, to be better, to do better, I always feel like its important to remember the past. I believe there is great power in history. First and foremost, it reminds us all of our journey so far. Everything we have achieved and what our potential is. Its a reminder of our roots, where we have one from and our values.
Yes, you guessed right! I am going to talk about my favorite sweater style for every winter. Fair Isle sweaters!! Who is Excited? I know, Fair Isles have gotten a bit of a bad reputation since the Ugly sweater concept started. BUt, I have always been fan of the patterns on the sweater that feels like a winter wonderland. Now, I am not talking about the Ugly sweaters!
As we get closer to Christmas time and NYE, we are only getting busier! Busy to wrap up at work (And this is my personal situation) as well as shopping for gifts, planning trips and hosting parties. And to add on top of that, looking pretty doing it all. I know it sounds like I am pitching something here, but to be honest, that’s the reality. So, creating this look book, it was really important for me to make is easy and wearable, as well as fun and something that you would actually feel special in.
Isn’t this the best time of the year! I grew up in a tropical location, so I am always amazed and aww struck by the winter Christmas. Love to watch houses covered with snow, trees with hint of snow tip and surrounded by Christmas lights. It just is the Christmas wonderland. Not just the decorations, but the whole vibe of things slowing down not because its snowing, but because you want to stop or slow down to enjoy the moment of admiring nature’s beauty in its fullest. I have always been an advent admirer of the wonders of nature, snow is one of them.
I hate blind online shopping when you only have limited time to shop and you want to make the most of the money you are spending. Sharing all the items on my Gift Guide that are on sale or on deal that you can shop on Cyber Monday. It’s a great time to get on board those deals and snag all the gift items you need for Christmas.
