Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.
- Henry David Thoreau
If the word for 2014 was transition, 2015 is a welcome fresh start. Resolution #4 is dress for your dream life.
Last year I decided, intentionally, to receive life as it came, to open my hands to all its gifts, even if they didn't look the way I expected them to. By July, I found myself selling all my belongings, saying goodbye to my cat, my apartment, my friends, my family and my country. Arriving in France with a few boxes and an emaciated wardrobe, I realized there needed to be loss in order to make room for all that was to come.
My life in Paris is slowly taking shape in a new home with the man I love and his daughters. We have a new company to build, but my closet has a lot of catching up to do. I love the idea of letting my passions, family and work inspire my wardrobe--being an American entrepreneur, a Pizzaiolo's woman, and a Parisian step-mom all at once. Adding just a few new pieces can cast everything in a new light.
On my list are whimsical heels from Sophia Webster or Charlotte Olympia, heels my step daughters could admire. Next, the perfect multi-strap handbag to sling across my shoulder during bike rides around town, and a vintage watch with a leather strap to help me make my appointments on time. And for everything from meetings to errands I need the perfect pair of relaxed jeans and a Balmain inspired blazer. Lastly, a colorful print dress is a must to stand out in this dreary weather.
