Ready or not, the holidays are coming! It is just about time for Thanksgiving. And then, before you know it, Christmas will be knocking on your door.
When it comes to planning and organizing, it is something I enjoy. But, I also think it can be stressful at the same time! There is just so much to do!
I’m all about simple online shopping, which is one reason I shop at Blair.com). And, when I take the time to care about my appearance, I get more done.
Working from home makes it far too easy not to care. It is simple to throw in a hoodie and yoga pants and call it “getting dressed.”
But, I have recently challenged myself to put on what I call “real clothes.” I’m not talking fancy sweaters and accessories. Nope. I like real clothes that are comfortable – and are not blowing my budget!
I’ve got to spend a lot of money to get the food, gifts and decorations we will need this holiday season. That means I’m watching my pennies while still making sure I don’t forget the most important thing of all.
To make time for myself!!
When the holidays come around, I am like most of you. I am doing all of the things for everyone else. I tend to forget that I need to enjoy it.
My goal this year is to take time to take it all in. My kids are getting older and before I know it, they will move out and may not be around during the holiday season.
I don’t want to live my life with regrets – and you should not either!
This year, I challenge you to do something you want to do for yourself! That may mean enjoying a book, a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning or getting outside!
I am doing this – but I have decided I want to feel good about it at the same time! I’m focusing on feeling good about myself while I do the things I love.
For me, it means shopping at Blair.com. I know, you may think that they sell fashion for more mature women but that’s not true! They’ve got some adorable clothes that are not only priced right but look good too!!
I’m out doing the things I love and feel good about it!
One of my FAVORITE things to do during the holidays is baking! A flannel tunic and stretch tank are perfect -because let’s face it, it seems you always forget that “one thing” and need to run to the store. I’m dressed and can dart out in a minute to get the vanilla or eggs.
We’ve also recently expanded our backyard and have a new fire pit and furniture! There is nothing better than sitting out there in the evenings enjoying some time away from our electronics. A warm fleece jacket is all I need to pop out and get it all set up!
My favorite thing of all about the holidays is when my family is all together for Thanksgiving! I love connecting with the people I have not seen. We laugh, we sometimes cry, but we all enjoy that time together. And a shaker cardigan sweater and tank are all it takes to look good without trying too hard!
As I said, I am NOT big on fashion. For me comfort and price matter most of all. This fall, I’m doing the things I love – but looking good while I do it — all thanks to Blair.com.
