What to Wear: The Last Workday of 2016

goodbye-2016-jcrew
The 2016 work year comes to an end for me today. When the alarm went off at 5:15 this morning CG said “you did it! Last 5 am wake-up in 2016!” We are both really happy to have a few weeks off from my super early mornings (I plan to sleep in until like *at least* 6:30 over the break – lol). I’ve only been in my current role since October, but this has been a long year – exciting and ultimately fantastic – but long. I’m ready for a break.

My last day in the office I wanted to be comfortable and warm (it’s cold for California right now!) but still look polished as we head towards the finish-line of the day. My choice was my favorite pair of Paige Denim black jeans paired with a thick tweed jacket from J Crew (no longer available but similar one here on sale).

Here are a few of the things I’m looking forward to doing during the break – aside from the obvious holiday festivities with family:

  • Hour long Tracy Anderson sessions. I’ve long enjoyed doing Tracy Anderson and mainly do her beginner workout (30 min), but I love the thought of really taking the time during the holiday break to connect with my body and start 2017 out strong.
  • Breakfast with CG. I’m a morning fanatic and I absolutely adore spending them with CG. We make coffee, and he makes some amazing egg creation while I squeeze fresh orange juice and prep the table. We read the paper and take our time chatting before starting the day.
  • Catching up with friends I haven’t seen in too long. It’s easy to get caught up in new jobs, homes, relationships and not take the time to see folks you love. I’ve started to make plans with some dear friends that I haven’t seen as much as I’d have liked to over the past few months.

What are you looking forward to doing over the holidays? How do you re-charge after the year?

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!!
