Make Me Blush

Happy Friday everyone! This week in BC it was a short one due to our holiday Family Day and now we get another day to celebrate everyone we love tomorrow. Torrey asked if  I would be his BALENTINES and take him for frozen yogurt so of course I said yes! I think he dropped some hints earlier in the week with tulips, pink Smarties, and a card haha (thanks family). Hopefully Valentine's Day can be a day not about expectations, but about giving to our family and friends, whoever that may be for you!
My sweet mom just gave me this blush jacket to celebrate getting a new job that starts soon and the color is the perfect way to take your clothes from Winter to Spring. It goes with almost everything! Have a beautiful weekend!

WEEKEND WEAR: Lazy Layering

Happy long weekend to all my friends in BC; our province has made a family day for us which is a great thing. Hopefully people use it as such and connect with whatever kind of family they have! Time to have a few sleep ins, cook really good food, and get outside into the fresh air. Yesterday it actually got up to 16 degrees in downtown Kelowna with sun and we sat and had brunch on a patio lakeside. Today, we're back to fog and rain but it was nice to get a glimpse of Spring.
For easy weekend outfits, I like to throw on a light jacket underneath a larger one with a third light layer. This way, I can add or subtract them easily if I get warm or if I go inside. Plus I think I am just really over big bulky jackets and knits at this point! Props to my momma for finding this cool wall to stand up against.

Well it's safe to say that cold and flu got the better of us this January. It hit Torrey and then it hit me, and then if you know anything about toddlers you know that they are a mess of pathology when they are sick and you have as little hope of scoring something you want at a sample sale the day after as you do remaining germ free around them. Enough said. He did however turn 3 last week and I will share some photos of the simple celebration we had for him soon, and overall I feel like exciting things are happening in what little is left of January. Truly looking forward to this weekend where I have nothing planned except swim lessons, photos, French toast, an art gallery show, and some football watching. Still plans, but all the best sort.
FULL DISCLOSURE: The Aritzia sale ruined my no-spend January, even though I did well to get 6 pieces online for $120. My rule for shopping Winter sales is asking myself if I can wear it now and wear it into Spring as well to make it worth my while. I got these three baby blue pieces that go great all together, they can be separated, and you imagine uses for them with cute skirts and sandals when it smartens up around here. Any sales you just couldn't resist this month? Happy Weekend!

WEEKEND WEAR: In-Vested in Layering

After the holidays where it felt like the weekend was time to get your shiz together and dress up for various things, we might all be a bit happy to return to true weekend wear. January might also be a good time to take stock of your wardrobe. I dragged everything out of drawers and off of shelves and racks and piled it on the floor to see what I had, what I might need in the coming months, and what I no longer get along with. If you're not planning on buying anything in January, like I am, this can also help you see what you already have and can wear in different ways. Save your money for those cute Spring pieces that are actually right around the corner from entering stores! I made this simple layered look with some favorite staples in my closet that I have never worn all together before. What's old in your closet that you can combine to make new?

The Future is Bright

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope that you all had some time to unplug and relax. Maybe you traveled somewhere warm, maybe you took a vacation by your fireplace with a book. Either way, I think it feels good to end and start the year surrounded by family and friends!
I don't necessarily like to put down hard and fast resolutions, but I do like to check in with the things that keep me healthy and happy and make sure that I am doing all that I can to keep myself this way. Every year you might find that you can add or subtract from this personal list of health and happiness factors as your experiences unfold.
Over the course of last year I found myself really focusing on creating in my home; decor, gardening projects, and making recipes. I started testing out recipe writing and food photography in the Fall, so this year on Inherited Jeans it's my goal to incorporate many more of these kinds of posts. Of course I love fashion, but I will be the first to admit I'm not trendy! I also saw the fact that I coveted copper mugs and antler measuring cups for Christmas over a new pair of shoes as a sign of change (or old age).
HOWEVER, I still clearly love pink, and for the remainder of Winter I will be chasing some new goals and adventures in this cozy puffer coat; a perfect Steffi gift from my momma. What's going to keep you healthy and happy this year?
