Can you believe that the first month of 2015 is already over! That means Holiday Season is just nine months away! It also means January Recap.

How are you holding up on your New Year’s resolutions? If your New Year’s resolution was to become more stylish, you can still join the 21 steps to a more stylish you course. 😉 Mine was to use an editorial calendar, and breaking it would be hard. It turned out to be such a good thing! <3

The second one related to this blog was to set up a Link-up party on this blog. I thought I would pull this stand off by mid January. (Wo)man was I wrong! It is much more work involved than I thought! I had co-hosted several linkup with my blogging friends, but being the one full in charge is quite different. Thus, a big thank you to all who host linkups!

How are you doing on your New Year’s Resolutions? Are you still on track or already playing catch up?

Now to the recap:

Now to the new OOTD. I wanted to go for a comfy, but polished weekend look. An Irish cable-knit sweater is nearly an American classic since the Kennedy boys wore it early last century (more in this post). I finally found a pair of skinny jeans in my size in Fairbanks. They are a find in a consignment store. They were new with the tags still on them.  I don’t understand how people buy clothes and then never wear them. I got these boots on eBay in summer. Same thing here. They were brand new. You often find brand new items on eBay that were gifts, but they did not fit (physically, taste, etc.), and the buyer had lost the receipt to be able to exchange it. Of course, you can’t go on eBay with the idea to find something right away. You have to browse long and frequently (more here).
