Tammy welcomes the Winter Solstice in a black maxi dress with cold shoulder sleeves that combines simplicity and timeless glamour.

Meditational writer Sarah Ban Breathnach reminds us that Winter Solstice is a time to reflect, release, restore, and renew – as well as celebrating the coming of the light, both without and within. Winter Solstice begins on December 21 and begins our journey into the deeper aspects of Winter.

She drapes a long strand of pearls across the throat and down the back to enhance the “floating” over-bodice detail of the dress.

January is the month of new beginnings. As the temperature drops we can practice the art of Hygge, slowing down and connecting with ourselves again, turning off all technology. When the candles are lit, put your phones down and embrace an atmosphere of warmth and coziness. There is no need to rush. Slip into an environment that is peaceful, and includes a safe place to wrap yourself up with those we hold dear.

The neckline can be worn off the shoulder or up on the shoulders, which allows the draped effect for the bodice.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. ~ Edith Wharton

And now we welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

The Real-Real Behind the Scenes

I just love this quote and wanted to share it with all of you, as we begin 2018.

New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today, carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change. – Sarah Ban Breathnach, excerpt from “Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy
