Sunday Styles no. 49


Well, hello there and happy new year to you!

Sorry for the long break, everyone, but I realized I wanted to take some time to refocus (literally & figuratively) and not stare at a laptop screen for more than I had to during my holiday break. That and spend some time with family and friends back in New York and New Jersey and have some quality time with Charles that didn't entail us sitting on a couch, both working. (Turns out simultaneous working doesn't count as "quality time," though we did a lot of it in 2013.)

Meanwhile, here we are. 2014.

I won't bore you with a long, self-important list of things I want to do for myself this year because A) as said, boring and B) I rather not look back a year from now and feel like a failure when I realize that I didn't hit all of my goals. ("How have I not mastered tap dancing yet?!" - totally not a resolution...or maybe it is. YOU'LL NEVER KNOW!)  I'm keeping my resolutions quietly tucked away in the dark, dusty recesses of my mind. Maybe I'll write them down somewhere and gaze upon them in the coming months.

I will say I'm looking forward to this year. I'm hoping for big changes, a better quality of life, and more focus on my various pursuits & projects. I turn 33 this year. The year Haruki Murakami (one of my favorite authors) changed his life by deciding to become a writer and leave his old life behind. I've been saying for a few years now, "if I don't make big changes in my 33rd year, I'm done for!" I'll leave it at that.

So, in celebration of this new year, I'm starting you off with a very simple, puntastic, and straight forward Sunday Styles.

Suits. At the end of 2013, I graduated from wearing dresses to parties to wearing suits. It's like Nami decided to put her Big Girl pants on (and blazer as it were) and start the year off right.

You cannot go wrong with a well-tailored suit. You can wear it to every party. I finally invested in this staple to celebrate the new year and got it tailored just so. Changing your shirt, shoes, and accessories can make this piece wearable in most any situation.

And with that, I say, here's to a new year of adaptability, more steps toward adulthood, and timeless (but completely attainable) style. Hope you're all still glowing from the last vestiges of holiday cheer and are ready to conquer 2014 like a boss. xo!
