Currently, March 2021. Plus Thursday Moda.
Today I am joining ANNE from In Residence with her monthly "Currently" series. It's a new month so let's see what we got going for March. Can you believe the first two months of 2021 are already gone?!
choosing: To continue my No Spend streak for this year. With the exception of birthday gifts or other gifts, things I needed (like I had to get a new face wash and a new face cream) and treating Vivian to her favorite local restaurant yesterday, I am proud to say I haven't spent much this year and I think I haven't gone to Starbucks since early January. That's an accomplishment! Overall this year I am being very very careful with all of my expenses.
imagining: That this will turn out to be a good year and a hopeful year and it will end well. As the vaccines keep rolling out and the Covid cases keep going down, as restrictions are eased or lifted, I can only hope that things will be much better soon, lets say by the end of Spring. I also have hope that by this Summer we should have some type of normalcy. Do you agree?! I truly hope so and I believe it will be a good year overall, for the world and for me personally, too.
making: Soups and new soup recipes. I am a huge fan and eater of soups. They are hearty, rich in vitamins and protein (especially when you use a lot of vegetables), easy to make, and one of those dishes that almost the entire family will love and eat, even my little picky eater Vivian (I got her to eat three kind of soups, so far). Plus soups are perfect for Winter and any cold weather - we have a lot of that here in Michigan. Today March 3rd is National Soup Day and in honor of this day I shared a recipe of one of the vegetable soups I make. It is on my latest Instagram post. I chopped up a variety of vegetables, added some seasoning that goes well with the soup and the rest... well go check out the post. It turned out delicious!
reccomending: The new Amazon Prime series "Tell me Your Secrets". I recently found out about it through a commercial and it intrigued me. I binge-watched it in two and a half days. It is soooo good! It keeps you at the edge of your seat. There are many twists and turns in it, it is so interesting and just like the title dictates, there are many secrets on it, almost every character has a secret, actually the 3 main characters have several secrets and their journeys are different but they meet in the middle (at the end). I don't want to say anymore and give bits and pieces away but it was such a great show and I definitely reccomend you watch it. Plus I love the acting on it!
wearing: As our weather has gotten slighty warmer and our snow is melting I have worn long-sleeve dresses a couple of times (with tights, of course). You will see one of these dresses on the blog this week for The Sunday Showcase this upcoming Sunday.
As you all know I love looking back into posts shared and blogged during this time of year, on previous years. I usually look back at some of my past outfits and styles. This time I am focusing on work styles featuring pants, all worn on March 2019. With things opening up and more people going to work in person, I figured these outfits would be a great option to look back into. Let's take a look down memory pants lane.
A pair of textured cropped black pants paired with a blush+magenta fair isle sweater layered over a black collared blouse. This outfit has polished vibes all over it. It is preppy too, especially thanks to those gorgeous gold Penny Loafers.
A gorgeous dusty blue blouse with a smocked collar and puffy sleeves is the right feminine piece to style with these high-waisted windowpane trousers that feel more masculine. Those jade globe dangly earrings were the perfect accessory for this look. It was a great outfit to wear to work and later on with sweet Vivian.
Can you wear jeans to work?! Of course you can as long as they are not distressed. You can wear black jeans, dark blue jeans or white jeans like I wore here. I paired mine with a chiffon leopard blouse - a combination I had never tried before but it turned out super chic. I added a light khaki jacket/coat on top and my blush patent leather pumps. For a pop of color and to dress this outfit up, even more, I did a bold, colorful heart statement necklace. Great look for the office and later on for a dinner date.
