Hope everyone’s January is going well so far. I have had a busy month to say the least. I have a lot of cool things coming up towards the end of the month that I can not wait to get started on!
I am finally re-doing my room. (For those of you who don’t know me…I don’t really like my room.) Around 6 or 7 years ago I went through a very simple phase, decor-wise. I absolutely loved the way it turned out it was beautiful and elegant but I painted my walls a very dark purple and lets just say the room is not properly lit most of the day. It can get really annoying when I am trying to read, or get dressed, or do my make up… the list goes on… It is going to be so great having a new light color on the walls. I am most excited about the natural light coming through better. Painting the walls is the biggest change of this process, I have been planning for this room change since the summer-time so I have a lot of my decor already picked out and purchased ready to go. I am excited to see things come to life.
In other news I did a recent closet purge and man did it feel great to just be ruthless with myself and get rid of those pieces I wasn’t wearing anymore as well as the things that didn’t fit me quite right. I am going to try my best to cut down on shopping as its one of my resolutions for the year and I feel like I am at a great point in my wardrobe to really wear and love the pieces I already own.
One of the pieces that I grab on repeat is this reversible plaid monogrammed vest sent to me by Marley Lilly. It is always such a pleasure to work with them. I feel super blessed to be able to create content for a brand that I love. Their clothes are such great quality and anything with a monogram on it is right up my alley for sure.
The great thing about this vest is that it is reversible. Its a really great way to spruce up a plain old sweater and jeans look. This plaid in particular is one of my favorites and I find it complements the camel color side of the vest really well. Its a great neutral piece with a fun pop!
I had a matching scarf from target that I got like four or five years ago. Everyone always compliments me on it when I wear it, I wish they would bring it back its such a classic look but I had fun pairing the scarf with this vest. I kept the rest of the outfit simple because I really wanted the vest to be my statement. I am someone who LOVES turtlenecks so I paired my vest with this cream turtleneck sweater from Talbots, my usual jeans and riding boots. I absolutely love how both of these outfits turned out. So simple, classic, and timeless…perfect for the winter months!
