Looking back on pictures from around this time last year, it’s hard to imagine we’re in the same month. I was traipsing about in the sunshine in light blazers and silk tops back then…a decidedly different scene from this one! By the time spring does definitely roll around, I’ll be all the more ready to go full-force with it given how long it’s taken to come.
In the meantime, working spring pieces in like yesterday’s post and today’s helps me feel like we’re not still in the midst of winter at the very least. Balancing it all out with a wool coat, wintery accessories and a cozy cashmere sweater helps keep the heat in…still very much needed!
On a brighter note, I will say that I’ve actually been kind of happy over the past week or so that the weather’s been kind of shitty. All I feel like doing is resting lately…I had such a busy February and I’ve quite frankly just gotten run down. This month, I’m really trying to master the art of productivity…rather than desperately trying to keep up, I want to feel like I can slow down a bit more. After wrapping up a week-long Harry Potter marathon and all in all just lazing about, I definitely feel like I’m getting on track with this new March goal.
Do you have any strategies for slowing down when things get a little too crazy?

    I can totally understand the need for winding down – I usually do it with what I call a girly night. I take a bath, read magazines, paint my nails, and have general silence in my apartment. Sometimes I really need to to recharge!

    It's not even close to looking like Spring here either. It was -33 this morning, and it's March! But like you, I've spent the last few days watching movies, and resting, so it hasn't really been that bad. 😉

    Great look Alexandra – I'm loving that hat!

    I love this look, Alex! Of course I'm drawn to anything black and grey.

    A day to myself is what I need to wind down. Whether that's a cheeky DIY or cleaning or doing nothing but watching Gilmore Girls all weekend long, a day to myself with no engagements is my wind down mantra!

    Oh Alex, this outfit is extra pretty!! <3 And… I'm all about slowing down! Usually when I get too busy my health problems flare up, and I'm forced to take it easy… I guess, it's a blessing in disguise! Knowing I can only do so much helps me prioritize that which is most important to me!! xoxo
