living lighter with less

’Til 2022, a deep desire for “less” has continued to well up in my being. Perhaps partially driven by a complex, heavy world around us. Simplicity is uncomplicated peace, and excess is no more than baggage. I’ve applied this not only to a more capsule approach to my wardrobe, but throughout my home and life as well. It’s become easier and easier to let go of the baggage that builds up with time, and more and more rewarding as the piles of unneeded disappear leaving more time to kick back and enjoy what you have. Not only in things which are material, but also in matters of the mind.    We are a generation of over thinkers. Of excess, and emotional weights we carry with us throughout our lives. It’s a new year, and it’s time to eliminate and reduce baggage – physically, mentally and emotionally. The cause and effect is simple, with less, we are lighter. With less burdens, we can stand up straighter. We become free to pursue what makes us truly happy without …

’tis the season, a tragic love story

It’s here. That cold that licks your bones and laughs as the deep chill spreads like liquid nitrogen through your veins. The warm glow from the holidays disappears like a candle being snuffed out, leaving nothing but darkness in its wake. And, though the earth’s orbit tells us daylight has just begun to extend itself once again – Us creatures of the sun know now begins the longest days of the year.  The frost has burned itself onto every surface, and the living seek refuge underground where a hint of earth’s warm heart can still be felt.  And now, there’s no escape. We are trapped here, with borders closed and restrictions barring us from warmer refuge. Where will we run to now? Home. They say home is where the heart is, but mine longs for rays of sun penetrating my icy cold flesh with heat rays of welcome embrace. I long for the sea and the sounds of birds and dancing trees.  The elements are unchanged. The air is still here, but the warm breeze …

preppy or minimalist, loafers are the new footwear essentials

Love it or hate it, if fashion is your thing, you already know chunky loafers are the minimalist must-have shoes of the season. This confident 90’s it girl style made a huge comeback in 2021, being paired with minimalist and preppy outfits alike. The good news, if you’re late on the trend, it’s not too late to grab a pair. Loafers are going to be around for a while, forecasted to continue through next year after being spotted littering the 2022 spring runways. Why we love them? While sneakers have made their debut the past several seasons as the comfortable essential while working from home, it’s feeling like time to mix it up a bit. We’re back in the office, and we’re having fun dressing for the occasion once again. That being said, we’ve gotten a little spoiled being in our comfies 24/7. Loafers offer the perfect solution – a tailored style that can be worn with casual minimalist office essentials, or dressed up true to the 90’s for those re-embracing fashion with open arms.  …

imagine a world, and resolve to make it so

We should reinvent ourselves not only everyday, but in every moment. When we cling to an idea of who we think we are, it’s then we get stuck, when we can’t compromise, and often when we’re too blinded by ourselves to really see each moment for what it is. But, it’s not so easy to be ever conscious in every waking moment. As such, each year I try to re-evaluate who I am, who I want to be, and areas I feel the need for growth. This becomes a sort of loose framework that helps to guide the consciousness in those moments you do find time to pause. In years past, I have sought to simplify, to let go of the pursuit of perfection, and to strive for progress.  2021 has been a strange year. One I cannot begin to know how to describe. It wreaked havoc on our lives. It taught us how to be more self reliant and prepared. It made us question our way of life, and it changed the way we …
