Getting Motivated + What I Wore

Every winter I go through a phase of sluggishness. I find myself wanting to hibernate, sleep, and be a couch potato and not do anything productive. Ok, may be that is not entirely true. I do the minimum--clean the house, grocery shop, and put the laundry away after my husband washes and folds everything; but I don't do anything real productive. I guess maybe I am so productive throughout the rest of the year that I need a break when it is cold and gloomy outside?

On this particular Saturday, I woke up early. Made D breakfast before he left for work and promptly began cleaning the house. After doing a few things around the house, I put on my running clothes and went for a 3 mile run. Oh it felt marvelous! Refreshing. Motivating!! As I ran I vowed to do it more often. I told myself that I needed to get into gear and start being productive again. The spring will be here soon and I have nothing to show for my winter!

Perhaps I am being vain but in 6 weeks I will be traveling to Paris. I can. not. wait. to visit Paris! I plan to take lots of pictures and I want to look like I was productive all winter; not a slug on the couch!

I am really looking forward to Paris and can't wait to wear some new clothes that I have been accumulating over the past couple of months. New clothes tend to motivate me and get me excited for an upcoming trip (in this case Paris), or a new season. While preparing to pack for Paris, I began looking for warm items that I could layer. I love this new jumper by Joules Clothing! Soft and comfortable while being trendy and unique, this sweater makes me feel fun and fancy-free on cold, gloomy days.

I picked this sweater because of the pup. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, but in this particular case, I am wearing my heart on my chest. I love pups; especially my own and although Polo does not have a trace of dark fur, this pup reminded me of my sweet Polo. I received so many compliments on this sweater when I wore it to work that I was quite pleased.
 What I wore: Baxter Sweater by Joules :: Button up blouse by American Eagle Outfitters :: 
Black slacks by New York & Company :: Black boots by Dana Buchman

What motivates you in the cold winter months?
