Fitting along with my one little word for 2012 (REDUCE) - I promised myself to buy more stuff second hand. It's cheaper, it's better on the earth and it's great to be unique and not look like everyone else in town. While this outfit is not all that unique - it's a perfect work outfit. I'm lucky to be able to dress business casual almost every day in the office and to have casual Fridays. This picture is h.o.r.r.i.b.l.e. but you get it - I need to give Miss S a little photography 101 class. I'm wearing a combination of pieces from Savers and Goodwill - I bet I paid no more than $20 for this entire outfit.
Here's a little breakdown -
Sweater - Merona (Target) - retail about $14.99 - I paid $1.99
Shirt - Sonoma (Kohl's) - retail about $15.99 - I paid $3.99
Pants - Worthington (JC Penney's) - retail about $29.99 - I paid $3.00 (half price day!) (these are actually a brown heatherish color)
Shoes - b.o.c. (Born) - retail about $59.99 - I paid $7.99
Necklace - Merona (Target) - retail about $12.99 - I paid $1.99
I love being casual, chic, cute and cost conscious:)

My word for this year is REDUCE....I LOVE the concept of Ali Edwards One Little Word so I'm continuing with that concept as my yearly resolution for probably the 5th or 6th year in a row. As I thought about my word for this year and what I wanted to accomplish the word REDUCE came to mind. It was a lightening bolt moment too - such a perfect word for what I wanted to do. So perfect that it actually made me a little misty eyed. Goofy, huh????
Some things I want to REDUCE this year:
1. My weight
2. My obligations
3. My time away from home and my family
4. My clutter
5. My unfinished projects
6. My bills
7. My impact on the earth
REDUCE will be my main focus for this year and probably for next year too - it's a lofty aspiration that I feel will take more than one year to master.
Tell me - what are your resolutions for this year?
