i wore a lot of things in 2012.
many of them, fortunately, not captured on film.
here are a few that were, as i trudged deeper and deeper through the many layers of my mission to:
dress for the day you want to have,
not the one that’s trying to have you.
so far in this new year, however, i’ve mostly just worn pajamas.
i caught the last cold of 2012 and am ringing it into 2013 with great huffing and puffing and blowing of noses. i’ve planned a contest to see who can guess how many tissues are in my couch-side trash can, but you probably don’t want to know the prize.
instead, in my cold-medicine-induced stupor, i’m looking forward to a full year of dress for the day adventures. this year, i hope to:
- do more with less – money, pieces, fuss.
- work towards those goals - i’ve got some dreams up my schemey sleeves that need some attention.
- run a marathon – more on this later, when my knees stop shaking.
- look, work, and fight for the next thing - in every area of my life, there’s a next thing waiting just around the bend. this year, i want to find it and wrestle it the ground, or crack it out of the ice box it’s hiding in, or whatever the appropriate metaphor is for the next thing. i’m all over it.
and every day of 2013, i’ll have to get dressed.
so i’ll be fueling my days with the clothes on my back, and hope you’ll join me in the adventures. they really are just clothes. it’s true. but when you put them on you, be they target or chanel, clothes become a part of you.
and you are going to do great things in 2013, one day at a time.
what goals have you set for 2013?
how can you dress for the year ahead?
