How has everyone’s holiday season been treating them? I know I have just been in love with having my house decorated, and watching my cats tear apart my Christmas tree every night. Who else has this problem?! Kids, Babies, cats… they’re most certainly a Christmas Decor’s worst nightmare! But it sure keeps things interesting. I never know what I’m gonna wake up to find on my floor in the morning.
Christmas has felt a lot different this year. I think it’s one of the first years that I’ve really felt like a grown up. At 26 years old I would have hoped that I would’ve felt like an adult prior to this point but the simple truth is, I haven’t, not even when I signed on my house did I feel like an adult! Mind blowing, right? I guess it just seems like no matter how much time passes, or how many more adult activities I am involved it, I still have my same youthful heart (and I certainly hope that never changes.) But this year has definitely felt more adult. I don’t know why except that maybe it’s one of the first years that I’ve really felt stable enough on my own to be able to do all of the things that my parents used to do. I’ve been able to decorate, host my own little get togethers, and buy gifts for everyone in my family without cringing at the cost. It’s really been pretty amazing! There ARE some perks of getting older!
I’ve been trying to consciously do a little more all encompassing growing up in my life lately. Not just with hosting parties, or working longer hours, but in the way I carry myself too. It’s the little things 🙂
As one of my goals in starting my capsule wardrobe I was hoping to create a more consistently professional look for myself. As a hairstylist I don’t need to fit into the professionalism that corporate America requires, but I was tired of feeling like I looked like a child arriving to work everyday. I may or may not have ACTUALLY looked that way, but it’s certainly how it felt. So, I tried making a conscious decision to dress more “grown up.”
This has been one of my favorite grown up looks that I’ve found. It’s classic, chic, put together, and has a funky little edge to it (thanks to my gray acid wash jeans of course.) But, I think my favorite thing about this look is that I can dress it down really easily by swapping out the shoes for some comfy loafers or canvas flats. Voila!
It has been feeling amazing to look in the mirror and see the woman that I’ve been hoping to become, instead of the same girl I was in high school. Can anyone else say Amen to that?!
