My Cold Weather Colorama Drama

Winter weather has suddenly thrust itself onto the NYC Tri State Area and I am none too pleased! Ugh.

In my scramble to find my winter clothes (which were very tightly packed away!) I found myself bored and frustrated by the amount of blacks/browns/greys that overpower my winter outwear selections. Save for my brightly colored scarves, my winter gear reflects a total style rut! It makes sense though - winter tends to feel like a blah season and with blah seasons come blah colors and blah blah blah... and this was affirmed when I got on the train this morning: no one around me (that I could see) had on a spot of color. There just HAS to be a better way to do fashion in the winter!

So I set out to find that better way and boy did I FIND quite a bit! Check out my picks - there's no good reason for me to be stuck in this color-neutral style limit!

Not sure which one of these I'll get just yet. Which one is your favorite?

Style moment: Florals in the Fall?

Typically, I don't do florals and if I am doing anything "flowery" it's in the spring/summer seasons. However, when I found the dress in this ensemble I was inspired! Definitely a style moment!!

When your bank account appears limited...

...or maybe the title for this blog post should be "When my bank account appears limited..." because I'm not sure how many of you can relate to what I've been going through these past couple of months.

I'm unemployed, receiving unemployment insurance and volunteering at what would be a really great job if I were getting paid for it (without the pay it's just a really great volunteer position!) and all I can think about is the fact that I'M NOT GETTING PAID! It's frustrating. And focusing about how limited my bank account appears to be has limited my ability to see all the abundance around me....

I was feeling really sad about it. Frustratedly sad about it. It's really the reason why I've ignored this blog and my other blog and some of the other things I enjoy doing. Focusing on what appears to be a limitation is really what limits you... or I should say, it really limits me. Can you relate though?

After a bit of meditation using a technique I learned from reading this and from seeing the sonogram image of my new niece or nephew that my sister just sent me (which frankly, has me in tears! I'm so happy!) has shaken me out of this focus on my limitations.

The name of this blog is "Style Without Limit" - and to have a style without limitation you (or I) must live a life focused on the abundance of possibility.

Not in this blog, or in life.
