After a wardrobe audit, you realize your favorite pair of jeans are worn out beyond repair, or your favorite black heel cannot be saved by your trusty cobbler, which means it’s time to take advantage of the January sales. With sites from Matches Fashion and Net-a-Porter spouting 70-80% discounts, it’s hard to ignore the deep discounts. If you decide to shop the sales this month, stay focused and invest in timeless design. Put your money where it is most needed whether it’s in the form of a classic camel coat or navy tote and ignore the overly trendy and flashy styles during sales time. Your forever wardrobe will thank you. Here is a roundup of our favorite classics that are on sale now.

Weekend Reading: Lagom

lagom-the-swedish-secret-of-living-well-desmitten

Start the year off right with a little thing called Lagom from the Swedes. Lagom is defined as not too much, not too little, just the right amount. And since we all love to read books about how to improve our lives through simplifying (re: Essentialism, Slow Living etc), I couldn’t resist sharing this idea with you. There are a few books out on the subject, see links below. In the books you will read about the power of no, the importance of listening vs. speaking and just the right amount of… well, everything. The books go into how to apply this laid back mentality to parenting, entertaining, decluttering your home and nurturing your relationships. It all sounds good to us!

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2018!
