Combat your Winter Blues + Casual Winter Outfit

Hello Houston - temps are getting a littleeee chilly this week and we are In the THICK of winter yall. Time to bundle up and I have to say that no matter what part of the country you live in (ok maybe not Cali) the winter blues can tend to creep on in. The days are short, we are getting antsy for Spring, and HOW many more days of sweater weather do we have?! As tempting as it is to throw on a hoodie and call it a day - we cannot compromise style! (I know hoodies are trending #Athleisure) but lets keep it fresh and transition to Spring with a powder palette and pastels. Below are a few ways to combat your winter blues and get back to fresh feels.
  1. KNOW IT WON’T LAST FOREVER - Use this time to plan out your upcoming weeks or even months. I’m starting to get back into planning mode and at this point Feb is super booked. Lots of upcoming Travel (Vegas/NYC, All the Bdays, Weddings, Celebrations) there is a lot to look forward to. Take this sleepy winter time to chill, relax, and bust out your planner. Things will start to pick up and you’ll be happy you took the proactive route to schedule out fun things to get excited about.
  2. Be Active - Try something new! Workout? Cooking? Beauty? Get moving and try something new you haven’t before. Or get back in touch with something you love and maybe it’s been awhile. I’m SO excited for horseback riding at Cypress Trails. I used to be one of those horse girls growing up lol and Chayson got me lessons for Christmas, excited to get back in the saddle.
  3. Indulge in Comfort food - the healthy kind! Yall know I’m on my Jan Whole30 groove. Comfort food definitely has a place in the winter months. It doesn't always have to be bad for you though. Try this Butternut Squash Soup recipe or a hearty stew. Some of my favorite dishes have been born during the winter time blues.
  4. Cozy Up with A Book - Getting back into this but I LOVE tea, reading, and my robe. Get comfy and pick up a new read. I’m into all the self development and how to count! 
  5. Brighten Your Wardrobe - of course last but not least! Refresh your wardrobe and rethink how you pair what’s already in your closet. You CAN be cozy and chic! I like to go through everything and see what new outfits I can style or how I can wear something old and make it new again. Pinterest gives me so many ideas and I love transitioning into Spring with pastels and pales. Below are some of my favorite topper jackets of the moment. Some are on sale too! Now is the time for outerwear and shopping...hello markdown season.

I hope this was helpful and gave you a few ideas on how to keep it fresh and moving along this winter. I know ours in Houston isn’t nearly what you northern peeps have to go through...but I’ve been there. And i’ll be back there again in Feb. Definitely packing the gloves this time! Hello NYC.
Happy Wed Friends!
