Happy Monday! How about a few happy things to lift your mood today?
1 | Bergamot essential oil | I just discovered this one over the weekend, and it’s quickly become my favorite smell in the world — calming, but uplifting with notes of citrus. It’s a natural stress reliever, too. I like to put it in my diffuser and mix it with a few drops of lavender.
2 | There’s a brand new issues of the Magnolia Journal | Okay, I can’t hold my excitement in any longer — I got to write a piece on capsule wardrobes for this issues! I know! It was an absolute honor and I took it as an opportunity to reframe capsules in a completely lighthearted and easygoing way — the direction my life and blog are headed. I’m excited to share more about it, but for now, find a copy from Lowe’s, Target, or Barnes and Noble.
3 | John Mayer’s new album is out | Or at least the first four songs of it are out — he’s releasing the album in 4 song “waves” over the next few months. Cool. The song “Moving On and Getting Over” in particular gives me the happy feels — give it a listen on Spotify.
4 | It’s Galentine’s day and tomorrow is Valentine’s day | So get out there and show some love.
Now, let’s shift over to this outfit real quick. I’d wear this outfit just about anywhere — errands during the day or out to dinner at night. Here are a few style notes:
- Comfortable elements combined | I was down with some kind of bug over the weekend, and even though I’m feeling better, I still want to feel a little cocooned today. So I went with a loose sweater on top, soft, non-restrictive jeans on bottom, and clogs with an easy 2 inch heel.
- Rolled sleeves | It’s a tiny detail, but that loose roll makes the whole thing look styled.
- Neutral color palette | Even though I’m all about comfort today, I’m still keeping things chic with an all-neutral palette of black, brown, and wheat.
And that’s that! Got a happy thing to add to the list up top? I’m all about it. Life can get crazy — let’s make room for a bit of play, a bit of good. Share away in the comments.
See you tomorrow!
