stripes in black + Link Up

This is really what my favorite outfits are about.


A classic piece like this comfy, slightly oversized, striped sweater, layered with a girly ruffle peplum top and a fabulous pair of heels!  In my book, it doesn't get too much better.  

January is quite the month for new ideas, resolutions, and a fresh start.  While I do have a couple resolutions (one being to stick with my new weight-lifting program), in our house, January is a month of cleaning out, getting organized, and reducing clutter.  Does this happen in your house too?  As we go to put all the Christmas decorations away and all the goodies that Santa brought, we realize that closets and storage areas are over-stuffed.  In the clean-out process, the house becomes a bigger mess of bags to donate or throw away.  After all that work though, is a calm piece of mind knowing that our house is in order.  It is amazing how much stuff accumulates over the year.  We started in the basement storage room (since that is where we need to put back the Christmas decor), the kids are "organizing" their legos into new storage bins (their lego collection is out of control!), and my husband cleaned through his section of our closet.  My section is next!

  9. My husband's quite obsessed with not having clutter. I think he asks me once a month to clean out my side of the closet, or tries to make me give away one old item for each new item I get. It's great in theory- I'm just not the best at it! I love the layered look with the stripes and peplum!

      I hear ya! My closet will be the last area I tackle. It can be hard to decide what to keep and what to get rid of.

  12. You look so elegant and stylish. Sometime winter can be rough but winter fashion always makes it a little funner. I did all my Christmas clean up and now feel like it's time to revamp things in my home. Organization always makes me feel happier.
