Lots of Dots

This past weekend B and I had a little weekend getaway in Fredericksburg, Tx. Which basically means we went to a lot of wineries and ate a lot of cheese. I also caught up on trashy, reality tv in bed and stayed far, far away from the internet. (Well, with the exception of Instagram. Must. document. everything.) It doesn’t take a lot to make us happy. Although I must say I missed the internet and you guys. Even though cheese is an excellent distraction. 

How was your New Years Eve? And even more importantly, how many resolutions have you made and broken so far? I’ve not broken a-one. Mainly because I’ve yet to make any. It’s hard to expect a whole year of self-improvement, no? That’s a heavy contract. So out of everyone you know, I will be the one not becoming a better person this year. Except I’ll probably join a gym and forget that I did in about two months. That’s always a given.

    I love this outfit, since Dressember I have been yearning for a chic selection of jeans, jumpers and boots. I may start a pinterest board (called ‘beyond Dressember’) and have this outfit on it as my first pin if that is ok by you?

    Sounds like a delightful little trip you had, cheese is the best, I think I have eaten about 2kg of cheese since 20th December (no lie) I should be about 6 dress sizes bigger but cheese is the one thing I can hoover up and just about get away with it! Any excuse eh?!

    Yep, I knew I wouldn’t stay with the whole “get fit, get healthy” thing so I broke it into two tiny little goals… 1) Stop going to Starbucks every. single. day. and 2) Drink more water! So far, so good although I practically had to drag myself away from Starbucks this morning! And cheese is the best distraction there is 😉 Glad you’re back!

    I love dots and dots on dots is twice as nice.  I enjoy your posts as much as your outfits.  No resolutions though I’m going to try to get more exercise that involves a little more effort than turning the pages of a book or operating the remote control.

  57. Happy New Year!

    I’ve only made one resolution… to get dressed at least once on each of the remaining winter weekends. The snow makes me wish I owned a Forever Lazy, so I could be just that. That’s ambitious enough, right?

    Love the outfit. My new year’s eve was all right. I mostly spent the evening at home watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Eve Celebration while munching on pizza. As for resolutions, I haven’t made one yet either haha.

  115. Haha, always hilarious, Kendi. Love the dots on dots! I've been trying to find something polka dotted lately, and can't find anything I really love!

    Every year I make so many resolutions and some of them get accomplished and some of them don't.
    This year I decided to want less and accomplish more.
    To do more and expect less.

    Yep, I knew I wouldn't stay with the whole "get fit, get healthy" thing so I broke it into two tiny little goals… 1) Stop going to Starbucks every. single. day. and 2) Drink more water! So far, so good although I practically had to drag myself away from Starbucks this morning! And cheese is the best distraction there is 😉 Glad you're back!

    I love dots and dots on dots is twice as nice.  I enjoy your posts as much as your outfits.  No resolutions though I'm going to try to get more exercise that involves a little more effort than turning the pages of a book or operating the remote control.

  139. Happy New Year!

    I've only made one resolution… to get dressed at least once on each of the remaining winter weekends. The snow makes me wish I owned a Forever Lazy, so I could be just that. That's ambitious enough, right?

    Love the outfit. My new year's eve was all right. I mostly spent the evening at home watching Dick Clark's New Year's Eve Celebration while munching on pizza. As for resolutions, I haven't made one yet either haha.
