I don’t know if this is a new found appreciation for skirts and dresses, but I feel like that’s all I want to wear. Pants are great, but right now I’m trying out a new workout routine that involves lifting weights and renders my body pretty sore and thus allergic to the idea of peeling on a pair of pants (ugh and peeling them of each time I have to use the restroom). Plus, I’ve realized that with the right amount of skirts and dresses they are pretty much outfits that give more than once. Throw a sweater on that bad boy and call it a different thing. Put some boots on, some sandals, flats — boom, boom, boom— different vibes each time.
Is this growing up? What the hell is going on??
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and wish you a happy New Year.
Here's to a new year where I continue:
- to save my money
- to keep a zero balance on any and every credit card
- to continue to workout twice a week (at least!)
- to balance my work/life situation more
- to paint and paint and paint
- to make time for family
- to travel a bit
- to put the phone down
- to do good work personally and professionally
- to keep this blog up a little more and find the motivation to speak openly to everyone about this new debt-free phase of my life and how that impacts my personal style.
Social media has me a little burned out though. I've been blogging for a decade and it's just exhausting to sometimes to find the time to make my life picture perfect enough for a post. For what? For who?
I keep telling myself the only way I keep this up is if I can share my flaws and be real. But here I am in my 30's a lot to talk about, but really not finding the right format to do so. So we shall see what comes of it. In the meantime, how you doin'?

On my mind lately.
These are some of my latest illustrations and sketches for paintings. You might recognize the first one as a painting I did this weekend and I have plans to make the rest of them extra large as well.
