Home Stretch…

The detox on shopping has led to more time at home, which has been nice.  I have also been battling a cold off and on for the last month, so the at home timing has been good.  In fact, I am beginning to wonder if 28 days will be enough.  Last year my husband and I did our “Whole 30” plan that morphed into the Bulletproof plan (more on that here and here) for much longer than 28 days.  Our habits are far from perfect, but detoxing food-wise for that long did make some permanent changes.  We continue to consume far less sugar than we used to and really don’t have the same taste for it.

There have been a few things that have been tempting with all the January sales.  My resolve is still strong, but these sales are really good.  Several items I have featured recently are on the J. Crew website at rock bottom prices like this bomber jacketshirtshirt, shoesshirt, pullover, bell-sleeved top, and  blazer.

In another week I will be at 28 days.  I will see how I feel then. In the meantime, the closet clean out continues with several new things on Poshmark this week.  My dog, Cupcake, is my constant companion and is loving more time at home.  She insisted on crashing this photo shoot where I styled these adorable striped heels (that I picked up this fall pre-detox) with gingham, a sweater, denim and I could not decide between my camo clutch and my custom canvas pouch.

“No Mommy, you have to wait until Christmas.” said my seven year old.   He had picked out several things for me on a trip to J. Crew when we were shopping for some other gifts.  He had so much fun selecting each item and kept saying, “You have to pretend you did not see this.”  So, as much as I wanted to style this plaid sweatshirt before the holidays, I was glad I did not.  It is more fun to style it with neutrals and the other present I had to wait to open, my Lilleth bag.

Today’s look combines one of my favorite pairs of denim (on sale!), the sweatshirt (on sale!) and my Lilleth bag.  The sweatshirt will be perfect next year for the holidays and I picture wearing it with more plaid like this shirt (on sale!) or these shoes.  For now, a touch of plaid is just right.
