Starting the year fresh.
I must admit, I was a little sad to see 2013 end. Not only was it a great year for Bliss (ahem, we launched our website!), but it was also a life-changing year for me and my husband as we welcomed our sweet baby boy in November! Part of me wants to hit the pause button and savor every special (and sleep-deprived) moment, while part of me can't wait to see what the new year will bring.
A new year means new resolutions - or plans, as I like to call them. Plans to slow down and enjoy all of the firsts that this year will bring being a new mom. Plans to take a family vacation (that will certainly include a beach!). Plans to take more risks with decorating my home. And...
Plans to update my wardrobe. Since I was pregnant the majority of last year, my closet took a bit of a backseat to onesies, rattles and swaddling blankets. So as you can imagine, I'm ready to shop. Here's what I've got my eye on for the new year:
Striped Blazer. A great blazer can take jeans and a t-shirt to a whole new level. It's such an easy way to look pulled-together and polished - something that will be essential after pulling an all-nighter with my little one. I'm loving this striped blazer by Velvet. It's a little more unexpected than classic black, but still works as a neutral. Available in navy or black stripes in our stores, it's a great transition piece that I plan on wearing all year round.
Riding Boot. For a while now, I've had a major crush on equestrian-style riding boots. So it's no surprise it was love at first sight when the Dorado Riding boot by Frye arrived in our stores. The dark green leather and slim buckle straps create a sleek, timeless look. These were my first purchase of the new year - and I couldn't be more happy with them.
Denim. After 9+ months of swooning over our new denim arrivals, I have quite the wish list compiled. At the top of that list are 7 for All Mankind's Slim Illusion Skinny in elasticity black and J Brand's high-rise Rail (slim straight-leg) in starless. I'm hitting the refresh button on my denim basics.
Really, I could go on and on about my plans for updating my wardrobe - but I think that's a pretty good start. Along with my personal plans, there are a lot of Bliss plans too. 2014 will be our first full year of blissboutiques.com - and without spoiling too much, we have some great things coming your way!
Here's to a blissful & stylish new year,
