Merry Christmas everyone! It’s time to kick up those heels, wear just about anything red without hesitation and generally make merry. I hope you are closing out 2016 with at least a few fond memories and with high hopes for the year ahead. Thank you for spending time with me these last twelve months; you are the heartbeat of this here blog and I couldn’t be more grateful to each and every one of you. Happiest of holidays from me to you! See you in 2017!

With love,

Amanda

Light as a Feather

As the holiday season gets underway, and as phase one of our home renovation project draws to a close, I am¬†feeling in the spirit and filled with gratitude and wonder. I’ve decided the whole exercise of transforming one’s home can be made into a metaphor for life; decide to make a change and then leap boldly toward a hoped-for future. Sure living with construction is a bit unsettling, but what’s much worse is stagnating in a life, and a living space, that no longer serves you. Another side effect of a life in transition is a¬†necessary paring down. Only the essentials and the most treasured items make the cut. What to wear for such uplifting upheavals? Maybe not-so-basic-black. Here I’m wearing a comfortable (and forgiving) dress with a lovely feather detail that’s a ready reminder to keep things light. True to form, I’ll let fashion be my guide on this one.

With love,

Amanda
