Hello! Ok, I’ve been checked out for awhile … I know … but we’ve been super busy, selling our house, buying a new one, and dealing with all this COVID stuff!
But, I’m back! And I’m excited! I feel like I’ve got a renewed sense of energy and purpose … sometimes you just need a break to get your creative juices flowing … there’s no shame in that. In fact, right now, I think all of us could use some time to sit in the moment, stop planning, stop stressing, and just be. So if that’s what you need, take it.
And really, that’s what this space is all about … simplifying your life so you have more time for the things that truly matter … to live with purpose and joy! So, with that in mind, I give you our Essential 25 Look #14.
Truth be told, when COVID first hit, we escaped to our family’s beach home and have been there ever since. We packed super light … which means I’ve been living with the same 5-10 articles of clothing for months. And you know what I’ve found? It’s freeing. But, I kinda already knew that … which is why I created the Essential 25 in the first place … but I want you to believe it!
Look, I know we all occasionally want to go out and splurge on a new top or new dress for a special dinner or event … but have you ever thought about using some of the most basic pieces you already own and choosing one stand-out piece to make a statement? I’m all about this. Because do you really think you’ll wear that impulse buy again, or will it simply disappear into the bottomless pit known as your closet? No need to answer, just think it over.
What if you chose to do something different? What if you stuck to a few basic pieces and went for understated elegance? The truth is … you don’t want people to see your clothes … you want them to see YOU.
And what could be more basic than a simple white-button down and skinny jeans? Stick to neutrals, stick to classics. Then choose one, and I stress ONE, statement piece. I went for a stand-out pair of earrings above … but you could also easily swap those earrings for plain pearl or diamond studs and instead grab an embellished handbag or some pumps with personality.
My one piece of advice … spend time searching for those standout pieces … they should be a reflection of you. I adore a good vintage find, family heirloom, or a high-end designer piece that you eyed for months or even years before you saved up the cash! Just make sure the piece is special to you.
So, I challenge you … next time you’re invited to a special event, stick to 90% essential 25 pieces, and finish your look with one unique item. Resist the urge to shop just for that event. Rely on the tried and true classics that are already hanging right there in your closet. And a red lip OR smokey eye always takes it up a notch (or two).

What I have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must fit the technical specs of the mother board. If the pc’s motherboard is kind of current and there are no main system issues, upgrading the storage space literally takes under 1 hour. It’s among the easiest computer system upgrade techniques one can imagine. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
