On the one hand, it’s nice to not feel that immediate pressure to start fresh, however, I’m feeling a little bit behind on that “new year, new you” vibe. I’ve easily gained a few pounds, my to-do list is out of control and we are all laking sleep around here. I’m calling January 6th the new January 1st for us…

I was thinking about resolutions and I’ve decided that this year I’m going to let go of high expectations for myself. Yes I could drink more water, drink less wine, read more books, watch less tv, put my phone down, etc. but instead of focusing on all of these things I could be doing better, I just want to feel content. I mentioned here that I felt like I lost myself a little bit last year. Juggling so many things and ultimately felt like I wasn’t devoting enough positivity to anything. I look back on projects or moments I captured and hate that they feel forced. I don’t want others to influence my work or what I do. I want to do things because they make me happy. Because I sincerely feel passionate about them. On that note, here is a little bit of what you can expect in the new year: new recipes, fitness routines (be sure to follow me on snapchat: @lizadamsss), Chicago favorites, beauty regimens, fashion, travel and more! I’m really excited to start creating more this year.  

Onto this outfit…I had been on the hunt for the perfect midi skirt and finally found it (and it is only $46). I love that it looks just as cute with a pretty tank top and heels for a wedding or a sweater and booties in the fall/winter. I’m wearing a size US 4 for reference and it fits a little high waisted (it sits above my hips). A look that is suitable for day and night. I wore it to roam around our favorite spots on our last day and an intimate sit down dinner with my grandmother.
