ready to dive into the new year with some fresh inspirations…what’s inspiring you this month?

one. there’s something nice about dressing in shades of grey. i’ve done it in the past, but i’m really wanting to try a few more dressy looks. ahn has perfected it (see here and here).

two. along the same thought path as dressing in grey is this phillip lim neoprene grey t-shirt. i can see layering this now with a button down and wearing later with bare arms and a statement necklace.

three. this week has been all about cleaning up my (out-of-control) inbox. unroll me manages your subscriptions so you receive one email at a time you specify, and has one click unsubscribe.

four. over the break, i’ve been cleaning out magazines, catalogs, and tears and finding new design inspiration. the barneys foundation catalog has stunning typography…gotta find out the name of that font.

five. clearing out magazines gives me an excuse to organize my collection. while i dream of shelves like this (heck, i dream of an office like this!), i can at least get some boxes to use in our bookcases.

six. they’re an indulgence, but i love smythson notebooks. this year is all about making it happen, so why not a cheery reminder whenever i peek in my purse (and it will remind me to jot down those blog or design ideas).

seven. yesterday’s bright blush article on into the gloss inspired me to try out the chanel le blush créme i bought last month (and have only used once).

eight. i’ve got my nike fuel band and my free run+ 5.0 sneakers, and i’m excited to start running on a regular basis. i’d love to do bay to breakers (actually run!) or another road race later this year.
