Style Files // Running with Errands

Happy New Year! 

I hope that you were able to ring in 2015 in a delightful way, wherever you were. I must say that I was definitely looking forward to this new year. There’s so much that I have planned already to do this year, both personally and professionally. I have just completed my new vision board, which has been very inspiring—it’s something that I typically do anyway. Creating motivational collages and visual art boards always get me inspired.

Instead of a scroll of traditional resolutions or impractical promises to myself I just make a set of monthly, and annual goals. This works best for me. But, I've also learnt many years ago to be open to change, because sometimes life throws you a curve ball and it works out even better than you had initially envisioned. Last year, I was able to cross off eighty-five percent of my goals, but there's a few sizable goals that I still want to accomplish this year, and that's okay!

Before the festive season started, I had a massive list of errands to do aside from the traditional tasks for the holidays. I also decided to work my travelling outfit into this look. So, here‘s what I wore for my errand run, as well as heading to the train station to meet up with family before all of the festivities commenced.

I am taking this weekend and the next week to leisurely get back in the swing of things before tending to the workspace. Of course, finding time for a much needed spa day in-between getting sorted will have to follow for good measure.


What’s one thing that you want to do (more or less of) this year? Cook, get organised, save money, recycle more, travel, etc.?

The Goods: Tweed blazer-Vintage, Leather boots-Franco Sarto, Hand-knitted beret-Gifted, Patent leather clutch-Vintage, Denim-Express,  Leopard jumper-Seen here c/o Oasap, Tank-H&M, Leather half gloves-c/o Choies.

  1. Classic and chic styling! Love the blazer/high boots combo and the beret is the perfect top-off. As for NYE goals, still working on mine! But expecting the list will probably get super long. HNY!

  2. Very nice outfit. I did a few plans for this year but a lot less than previous years. I lose a bit of hope every year. xoxo

  11. Happy New Year to you Madison! May it bring you all the happiness and love in the world! Looking very stylish and lovely with this outfit, perfect for both errands and traveling, is cosy and yet chic. Have a great week ahead, hugs! xo

  12. Happy New Year Madison!! You look adorable. Love the blazer and the super cute beanie. I think it's a great idea to set a monthly goal. I have never thought of that and it might me the right thing for me too. I never stick to new NYR but this year it's going to be different. Ich hoffe du hattest ein tolles Neujahrsfest. Gesünder essen, yoga und meinen Kleiderschrank ausmisten und nicht so viel unnötiges Zeugs kaufen sind meine Vorsätze für dieses Jahr. Hab einen wunderschönen Montag! :D

  16. I avoid making plans and NYE resolutions. The only thing I wish for is to become a more organized person. But good for you! 85% of the goals for the last year is not bad at all! Happy New Year, Madison! Lots of health and happiness!

  22. You look fab, sister. Great blazer and boots. Good to hear you were able to cross out some goals. :-) With the help of God, I want to put my fears aside and learn how to drive, lose a bit of weight and go on a holiday with my son. I pray things get better and better as the day progresses. :)
    Alles Liebe meine Schwester! xoxo

    I like how you do goals. It's sort of the way I do it. Sometimes I just say that today I'll start doing this, or I'll stop doing that without putting any timelines on anything. I find that to work best for me. Love the vintage tweed blazer.

  24. Leopard is always a good idea!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I agree with your way of doing resolutions. Setting monthly goals is a much better way of getting things achieved.


    Also - really love that top. Looks fab!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy New Year to you too, lovely!
    I agree with you that resolutions are of no use, but setting goals and making plans is much more beneficial :)

    Liebe Madison, ich bin beeindruckt, wie viele Deiner Ziele Du erreicht hast! Du bist wirklich sehr tüchtig und darüber hinaus hast Du auch noch einen guten Geschmack, wie Dein schönes Outfit hier wieder bestätigt <3 Ich habe keine Vorsätze für das Neue Jahr gefasst aber ich bin ebenfalls beeindruckt davon, dass Du Dir einen genauen zeitlichen Plan dafür gemacht hast. Daran kann ich mir wirklich ein Beispiel nehmen :) Ich wünsche Dir nur das Beste für das Neue Jahr und viel Erfolg!

  40. I like pretty much everything in your outfit! The beret is perfect, and the colour of those boots is to die for. Also the cropped gloves and vintage jacket are perfect combination with the skinny jeans.
    I stopped doing new years resolutions long time ago, but this year I would really love to finally travel on steam train, wearing either vintage outfit or steampunk-themed outfit. I have been dreaming of it for years now, and I think this might be the year when it happens. I am also dreaming of traveling to England.
