Using the great words of the one and only Adele, Hello from the outside…
It’s had definitely been a while since I’ve last posted and I’m ready to admit that I definitely bit way more than I could chew when it came down to my 2016 New Year Resolutions; especially in the blogging department. I set myself some lofty goals for this year but I forgot to account for the hours in the day that I would need to sleep/socialize just to stay sane. I can’t do it all, but I can still have it all as long as I prioritize.
So what’s been going on in my little corner of the world? Well I chopped off all my hair into a messy bob and I’m slowly getting use to it. On the career front, I’m loving my current job and I’m excited to take steps to plan out the next 5 years of my fulfilling career life. I also took my health and fitness more seriously this year and have been a dedicated gym member. I’m even back to my high school mile time and plan to run two to three 5K’s this year. I’m still working on the healthy eating part of the equation, kudos to Arin for giving up dairy because I just wouldn’t be able to do it. (gimme all the cheese…) On the home front I’m working on getting my apartment 100% furnished and styled to reflect my taste. I’m a firm believer that your home should reflect your personality because if you don’t feel “at home” in your home, than what’s the point? I’ve been snapchatting (follow me: @caravanofstyle) some behind the scenes details of how things are coming along if you’re interested.
With my days booked up to the minute, I’m all about getting dressed an out the door in minimal amount of time. I’ve currently obsessed with faux layered shirts like this one that I picked up from ASOS. I love layering my button downs under a sweater but hate the bulk that it sometimes adds to my frame and these types of faux layers are a great way to avoid the bulk. Over the weekend (before the snow storm) I paired up this sweater shirt with my favorite skinny jeans (only $30!) and booties for lunch with my mom who was in town for a visit.
So what’s everyone been up to lately!?
