This weekend is full of firsts:
And even as a 31 year old woman, I must say, there is something magical about experiencing a new adventure for the first time….a “first,” whether it is the first time to visit a new city or to wear a new trend, always makes me feel giddy and like a child inside.
Do something today for the first time…because no matter how big or small, or silly or serious it may be, you never forget your first.
What’s one of your “firsts” that sticks out in your mind?
Ready or not, here the cold weather comes….
…..And I DO NOT DO COLD WEATHER VERY WELL.
Yes, I get to wear leather every damn day. Yes, I have the option of wearing fur. Yes, I can rock a beanie or a wool fedora. And yes, I can justify not shaving my legs a couple of extra days because, well quite frankly, no one sees them.
So, there are a couple of pros….But ultimately, when the temperatures drop, all I want to do is keep on some cashmere sweatpants, bundle up with my puppy, watch old movies, and eat some homemade chili or sip on hot cider.
Therefore, when you absolutely must get dressed an head out into the cold, its nice to have some go-to pieces in the closet arsenal that will A) keep you warm, and B) still look incredibly chic.
What are your secrets for keeping chic as the temperature drops?
Over the last couple of weeks, specifically, the word “can’t” has ruled my vocabulary:
You can’t make people like you.
You can’t make everyone laugh.
You can’t always dress to everyone’s liking.
You can’t give love uncondtionally and always expect to get the same in return.
You can’t assume that people will do what they say they will do.
And you can’t be entirely vulnerable without realizing you will receive backlash for your honesty.
But what you can do is control how you react to all those things….and you can continue to love those who hate you.
Spread the love this weekend. Find one thing you can’t do and turn it into a can. React with kindness. Rejoice with humility. And celebrate one another.
And if all else fails, remember it’s Friday….and pour a cocktail.
