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!).
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.
And this is the best part of the gift guide. Buying something for your lady love. Not necessarily it can also be for your friend, sister, mother. Going with my gift guide theme this year of gifting something useful, I categorized this one with different personalities because in reality, thats the toughest to discover for your lady! Many reasons for that. As women, we morph into so many personalities, a friend, an advisor, a manager (yes thats very true), a teacher, a buddy, a confidant, a lover, a mother, and probably so much more. So, in all of that its really tough to figure out what exactly your lady loves. So, I thought to simplify it and categorize in terms of what kind of style personality they have, and you can shop for them that way.
This one is actually one of my biggest nightmare and best thing of the year. My husband is not a shopper, you would say mine too. But the weird thing is that he loves to buy great stuff, he loves everything about buying, he just does not have the patience to do it himself. And he is also not a great online shopper, and these days we don’t have time to shop. So, I love to buy him some cool stuff around this time to inspire him to shop more. But this gift guide is not about him, its about all of you who want to buy the perfect gift for him.
This season, I have seen so many bloggers and celebrities rocking combat boots. Though I am not a fan of combat boots, I do feel like there is salvation for people like us. You must be thinking, why would she not like combat boots. Well, I do like the comfort they provide and most of all the stability that we need during winter months when its snowing or raining outside.
