January Inspirations


As much as I love soft pastels and punchy colors, I’m definitely a neutrals girl at heart. Especially since January started, I’ve been craving all things simple and clean, from the colors in my closet to what I’m cooking, so it was extra easy to pull together a few of my favorites for this post. Cheers to a new year and a clean slate!

January inspirations

Wear: I will forever have a weakness for a pop of buffalo check, and this look perfectly sums up how I want my outfits to feel this month: cozy and warm, but still polished and chic. (Photo via With Love From Kat)

Eat: I am so proud of how well Dave and I have been eating since we got back from Texas, and I’m anxious to add new, healthy recipes to our repertoire. This Blueberry Banana Pie Vegan Overnight Oats from Oh She Glows is at the top of my list!

Live: White, bright, and overlooking the city–this just might be my dream home office nook. (Photo via Closet Full of Nothing)

Decorate: I finally convinced Dave that gallery walls can look stylish and mature, thanks to this exact photo, so naturally, it’s serving as inspiration for the gallery wall going up in my room. I love the shape and the super tight color scheme! (Source unknown–let me know if you know it!)

Celebrate: We rang in the New Year with champagne at my parents’ house–plus a little bit of shrieking about how it’s our wedding year :) (Photo by Pasha Belman via Southern Weddings)

Shop: I might be cheating on this one a little bit because it’s something I already bought, but I am in love with this J. Crew Sequin-Trim Sweatshirt! It is so thick and comfy, but the sequin trim definitely dresses it up and makes it special. I bought it in gray, but it also comes in navy and blush, and is currently on sale for $42!

Your turn! What are you wearing, eating, decorating with, celebrating, or shopping for this month?

    Love your inspiration! I am looking for a good pair of ponte pants that are both comfortable and cute to wear, I’m trying to eat more protein and less processed food (I’m also sipping black coffee all month instead of loading it up with extras), I’m planning out a gallery wall for my room, I celebrated my mama’s birthday, and I’m shopping for a great paraben-free concealer :)

    I’ll be planning lots of celebrations for my favorite bride!!!!
