Happy new year everyone! 2014 brings a fresh year with fresh goals and 365 days to better ourselves and our community. It's kind of exciting, especially with a new planner in tow to help achieve all my new (well they're always the same) resolutions. Last year I decided against resolutions and decided to live each moment to the fullest.
This year, I'm changing resolutions to life goals. And if you're curious about what they are then you're out of luck. Just kidding, I'll tell you a few. This year I hope to run my first marathon and keep the title of an endurance athlete for another year. I also want to travel more within my city and of course outside of it. I want to declutter my home and start having guests over. And finally I want to be successful in my work, and that includes my job, my blog, my volunteer efforts and in all my creative outlets. Here's to our year of YES!
Now let's speak fashion shall we. It is freaking freezing as ushe in NYC. The only way to combat the winter gods and their fury is to layer and invest in winter must-have basics. So how does one wear layers without looking frumpy you ask? Everyone is different but for me, I stick with winter (read: THICK) leggings, funky sweaters, and in this instance a floral frock from my favorite season: summer. Completely covered head to toe, but I got the chance to play with length and mix different patterns and textures. How fun and might I add an easy way to layer for this chilly season. So I implore you to try the same, you might even find your new winter uniform.
Share your secrets on how you layer up for winter in the comments. I'd love to know.
