As I’ve previously mentioned, my New Year’s resolution this year is to enjoy the little things in life and do more of what I love. So far, I’m keeping up with it so I thought I’d take this opportunity to talk a little bit about some of my favorite little things I enjoy doing so much.
I absolutely love going to flower shops to pick up my favorite blooms. There are always different flowers in season so there is something new to see every time. Something about flower shopping is just so relaxing and soothing. I like to really take my time with it, look at everything, and take it all in. Putting together a beautiful bouquet for the house is definitely at the top of my favorite activities, not to mention that I just love having fresh flowers in my home— it creates such a lovely environment.
Who doesn’t love a good coffee run? I don’t know about you guys, but I need some caffeine to fuel for the day! Instead of drinking my coffee or tea while I’m on the phone and answering emails all at the same time, one of my resolutions is to take my time and enjoy the moment. Looking back at 2016, it just flew by so fast! Living in a fast paced environment, I think it is important to take a mental break during the day, and coffee stop happens to be a perfect opportunity.
Going out to dinner with my husband:
Emil and I have dinners together all the time of course. However, this year I’m making a conscious effort to make some of those dinner dates more special—maybe dress up a little more than usual. Recently, I wore a gorgeous pleated midi skirt and a black bodysuit with a cool cutout (not going to lie, I’m pretty obsessed with it) on one of our dinner dates, and I have to say that the evening definitely felt more special. To add a bit of drama to this otherwise very feminine look, I went with a pair of DVF sunglasses. A big fan of sunglasses in general, I love adding sunnies to evening looks for a touch of polish, edge and sophistication.
In the last year or so I have noticed my style evolving and becoming a little more care-free and casual, and comfort is something I look for more and more each day, especially when it comes to off-duty outfits. I also started to dress down a bit more on my days off, which is a big step away from high heels and tailored everything I would have worn a few years ago. However, I still love accessories, and I feel that sunglasses play a very important role in elevating even the most casual of looks. For example, above I’m wearing a simple bomber jacket and a pair of distressed jeans, a rather casual pairing; yet, the right pair of shades, like the DVF sunglasses I’m wearing, adds a bit of polish to the look.
What are your go-to accessories?
