I truly love a fresh start and always anticipate a new year for a slew of reasons. It feels like a perfect reset and a time to change up anything that wasn’t working in the previous year. Although I don’t make specific resolutions, I like to start off with a clear space and a clear mind – sifting through anything I don’t want to hold on to and collecting new inspiration for the year ahead. I like to sort through my Pinterest boards and even make a physical mood board to get me excited. I started a New Year shop filled with some of my favorite staples and simple wellness additions and wanted to share a few more favorites below. Happy New Year!!
This past year I found myself living in classic button up oxford shirts. I just purchased this inexpensive blue option and I love the slightly oversized cut for a relaxed look. They are great for layering under a sweater or throwing over a t shirt or dress. As I cleaned out my closet this week I realized true wardrobe staples never tire and only get better with time. Much more thoughtful purchasing in 2023!
Candle I’m Burning
Budget Friendly Grapefruit Basil
I am always on the hunt for a good budget friendly candle since most of my favorites tend to be quite pricy. I have been so happy with this fresh scent, especially in the kitchen. It isn’t overtly fruity and just lightens up the air – perfect change of pace from my woodsier winter candles.
At Home In The Cotswolds
My favorite way of collecting inspiration will always be design books. I like to get a new one at the start of the year and just purchased this beauty. The Cotswolds are one of the prettiest places I have visited and this book brings instant comfort.
One of the first things I want to switch up this year is the vintage runner in our little hallway. I love a vintage rug for high traffic areas because they already tend to be weathered and faded, yet still hold up incredibly well. Plus they add so much character!
The Perfect Accent
I have been eyeing incredibly simple and classic bags and this one is at the top of my list for under $300. I love something that can be worn crossbody or top handle – so much versatility and the buckle detail on the side adds the perfect amount of interest.
Can’t Stop Making
I often get stuck on certain foods and can’t stop adding them to an array of dishes. Lately I have been all about crispy shallots. They are the perfect accent on everything from salads, to burrata, and even a pizza. So simple and SO delicious. For Christmas I did burrata, crispy shallots, thyme, fresh pomegranate seeds, arugula, sea salt, pepper and fresh bread… so good!
