Celebrating the Slow Successes of January

The sun is finally setting on the first month of 2018. I say finally but to be quite honest, January hasn’t dragged for me. The last few days on Twitter have been filled with jokes about it being January 64th or it still being January 2018 in March 2052, but…

Earlier this month I shared a little thinkpiece about how I’m Reconnecting With Personal Style and lowe and behold, actually thinking about what I’m wearing and why I’m wearing it has led to a better wardrobe experience already.
