I am really a very simple person. Little things make me very happy, in fact I’m at my happiest sitting reading a good book (on my Kindle of course ;)) and drinking a cup of coffee. Sometimes I forget how important and wonderful the simple things are, when I’m caught up in trying to DO too much instead of just BEING. I’m also trying to HAVE everything right now, which takes me away from the amazing, simple things I ALREADY HAVE. Like this Lanston dress.
I bought this dress before we went to Rome for my birthday in 2011 and wore it a lot up until this summer. It’s a size medium, so it’s not really too big for me, in fact, it fits me very well; I don’t even have to wear spanx with it anymore. But since I’ve been adding so many other things to my wardrobe recently, I’ve not worn this dress as much as I should. I really need to wear it more often, because it’s perfect, and it makes me feel great: instantly put-together, chic & minimal at the same time. Simple.

And just because life isn’t all about our wardrobes, here are some more of my favorite simple pleasures:
- organic blueberries: I’ve been getting mine at costco and can eat a giant container in about three days.
- good coffee
- a good book: right now I’m reading Thorn Birds, which is old, and I remember the miniseries on TV, but I never read the book. I usually read a book a week, but since my stepson is here, it’s more like a book a month, so I’m not very far into it.
- not having to wear spanx 😉
- having the ability to do Pure Barre five days a week. I truly do NOT know how I would manage without it. In fact, I barely do when I’m away on vacation
