Good morning & happy Monday. I hope your week is off to a fabulous start. I'm a firm believer that every day is a new day & every week is a new week. Meaning, I try to start each Monday by getting up early and setting my intentions for the week. What are some things you are hoping to accomplish this week?

Some of my favorite things to do in the morning consist of reading my devotional, finishing my blog post for the day, engaging on Instagram, and eating breakfast. I don't usually get to all of these, but I try my best to focus on a few things and get them done. Above all else, I believe eating breakfast is so crucial with starting my day off on the right foot. Finally, I try to jot down some daily and weekly goals for myself. Writing down my intentions helps to hold me a little more accountable and prioritize them. What is your morning routine like? Do you have a morning routine?

I'm loving that Y'all are appreciating, loving, and shopping my easy-to-create workwear looks! Since I live this life Monday- Friday's, I'm glad to see that Y'all are enjoying me sharing it with you. One thing I've been trying to do with my wardrobe is to build a seasonal "capsule" wardrobe. The idea is that the pieces purchased work for both work & play. 

Now, even with the best intentions, this does not always work. But it's okay and nice to have a few pieces that are just for one activity. For example, I love ripped jeans. I always have and have three pairs that I've accumulated over the past two years that I wear just on the weekends. Furthermore, I have a few dresses that I absolutely love for work and feel great in, and that's all that I wear them for. 

This entire outfit combines items in my "capsule" wardrobe. This shirt pairs so well with jeans, white jeans, black jeans, you get the idea. I find myself wearing this top on Saturday morning running errands or styled with dress pants or a fun skirt, like today. This faux leather skirt is a little edgy than I usually dress, but for that, I love it. I treated it as a basic, black skirt, mixed textures, and love the result. Also, my favorite tried, and true tip is to pair a shorter dress/skirt with leggings or tights for a more conservative look, depending upon your work environment. 

And lastly, I wanted to finish the post off by sharing some of my hopes and goals for this week, hoping that we can all live our best life this week. 

Some things I am hoping to accomplish this week are: 
  • Finish reflections for school
  • Read a book! I've been awful at reading lately.
  • Plan holiday content
  • Finish my Gift Guides 
  • Finish decorating
  • Increase my page views on the blog!
