The holidays are almost over. Time to put on a cozy sweater and make exchanges at Nordstrom for the stuff you actually wanted – oh and get your house back in order. That last one is cute because I said “back”. Like my house was ever “in order”. But it’s about to be a new year so maybe I’ll change…? In this post-holiday season, it’s easy to feel a lull. Christmas is so exciting but when it’s done it’s kind of sad because the whole holiday vibe is over! All of a sudden I’m done looking at my mini apartment-sized Christmas tree with it’s three ornaments and sick of my wreath and cleaning up all it’s dead pine needles.
I am trying to remind myself to put in the work and set the stage in the New Year for new opportunities and new productivity! I’m doing things like re-organizing my closet and decorating my new apartment so I feel refreshed, planning my 2018 so I can keep focused, starting light workouts so my New Year goals will be easily achievable, and putting in the hours at work so I can finish the year strong. I also plan on laying around – like a lot. Let’s be honest, the holidays are exhausting. I am trying to do my best by splitting my time between vegging all week and gently ramping up production. It’s a balancing act. Getting some well needed rest is so necessary but sometimes when I do that too often (that, meaning, sleep -ha) I feel like I get stuck in this hazy sleep land where nothing gets done. But running a few errands and setting time in my day for lounging – because God forbid something not be scheduled on the calendar – keeps me productive yet well rested.
To keep with this half-productive, half-lazy mindset: this outfit, and several variations of it, has been by uniform since the day after Christmas. Not lazy enough to be yoga pants, not cute enough to be uncomfortable. *New style trend emerging*It’s post-holiday comfort and I wear it all too often.
I got these jeans from Nordstrom during Black Friday and they sold out within hours! But I found two crazy similar options below (both less than I paid on Black Friday)! Lastly, this sweater I can’t live without and am tempted to buy three more in different colors.
