Current temperature outside: 19 degrees.
Temperature in Maui when I took these pictures: I'm gonna guess around 80 degrees.
So it's really a fun, blogger irony joke that I'm posting these today! And 100% dreaming about that lovely Hawaii weather...on such a Winter's day here in Nashville.

I love that beach vacation lifestyle of being SO grungy and sandy all week, that when you finally DO take a shower and get ready again, it's so fun! This was day two of my family picture hair, for a nice fancy dinner that our friend at home surprised us with (thanks, Mr. Haff!) I assure you for the rest of the week, I wore no make-up, my hair was a fright, and it was delightful!
Good news about Hawaii: I didn't over-pack. I seriously ran out of things to wear! I packed this dress for a dinner/going out, and wore it for both. It's new-to-me, secondhand from my co-worker Jamie. It's simple, fits well, and seems to have pretty limitless styling possibilities.
New lipstick (the one part of this outfit that DOES translate to real time, I'm wearing it today)! The day I left Nashville for Christmas (also known as: The Morning After The Holiday Party '14), I got to work in a daze, and it was sitting on my desk; the kindest, most thoughful, thank you/Christmas-y present from my friend, Kat. Thank you Kat!! The color is Venom by Urban Decay, and in terms of application, texture, and shade, it's perfect! Even the metallic tube feels luxe. I was very excited to break it out when I wasn't a hot mess making the trek home with a Charlie Brown Christmas tree in my carry-on (thus was the situation the first time I tried it on.)
So how IS everyone? Just realized we are officially one week into the new year. I would love for you to leave me a comment and tell me how 2015 is treating you so far. Did you make resolutions? Do you feel refreshed and ready to go? Are you getting in your groove? I feel like I am finally, finally starting to get organized; which is how I thrive.
One of my resolutions for the year was to have a one word motto every month (my resolutions are really by the month. Check out this post for more information on that.) And because of the way January feels, and how my life feels, my word for the month has been selected: organize. It is my sincere hope that by the end of the month, I feel organized, or at least, my brain does :)
Thanks for reading guys! I am just putting the finishing touches on my "2014: What I Wore" post (and not a moment too soon...right?) should be up by the end of the week! I am really enjoying looking through my old outfit posts for the year. Is that totally vain or..? Eep! Signing off for now!
