What I Wore: Dress (Modcloth), Shrug (Ruche), Leggings and Leg Warmers (Old), Boots (Famous Footwear)
A few days in and how's everybody doing? 2013 treating you all right? Some of you are probably several days in now with your New Year's Resolutions. Anybody got those? I love to hear about people's list of goals and resolutions!
These past few years I haven't done resolutions because I'm doing a "Day Zero Project," also sometimes called "101 Things in 1001 Days." It's pretty much what it says on the tin, 101 measurable goals to be completed in 1001 days (a little over three years). I like the slightly longer time frame it gives because something are goals that might take a bit longer to get organized, yet its not so long your goal becomes relegated to a pipe dream. You can find my list by clicking the link in my sidebar. Its funny though, because when I wrote the list (waaaay before I ever had this blog), I was in a train by myself heading from Budapest to Vienna, and I was at such a crossroads where there were a lot of paths open to me and I wasn't sure exactly what my life would look like. My 1001 days will end in 2013 (only days before we get married actually!), so it makes me reflective. Its actually the 101 list I've done; I didn't complete the first one, but felt I learned a lot from it and was excited about this one. My current list I've modified as my life changed and a future took shape, and I've learned lots from this one too. The new year definitely has me renewing my commitment and excitement for the list too!
I've a few other, vaguer goals including the usual- more regular exercise more (and healthier) planned meals at home. But I'm also looking at what I want to do to continue to improvement my blog. I got lots of ideas, but one was showing more outfits I might wear to work. The above outfit is one I'd wear to teach in. Kids love the whimsy of the glasses necklace, and I can move around in it comfortably- wether its kneeling down, sitting in tiny chairs, charging around a cold playground or running a hot projector. BUT I still feel its profesional and grown up while conveying my sense of style. Perfect substitute teaching outfit.
