The Secret to Happiness

Ok, we maybe not but a great title right? Anyway, I found this great article about how habits are the secret to happiness. Gretchen Rubin, who wrote the great book called "The Happiness Project" was interviewed about how formulating habits are a major source of happiness. It kind of makes sense, who hasn't made and abandoned a New Year's resolution? But getting in the car and putting on your seatbelt is automatic. I never wore a helmet riding my bike, skiing or horseback riding as a child, now I always do. The key seems to be establishing healthy habits that work for you. Another key seems to starting small. Not, I'll lose 20 pounds, but I'll take the stairs, not the elevator. It's worth a read. Happy Friday!

I'm at a loss

Ok internet friends, I'm totally at a loss. I need some new items and am struggling to find quality, classic attire. I'm 44, an attorney in a business casual company and the look above pretty much is a good example of how I like to dress. Usually I wear dress slacks, a nice button down or sweater and some classic jewelry. Navy, gray and white are my main colors with red and dark green as accents. Anyway, I'm having the worst, and I do mean worst time right now. J Crew and Banana are awful, Loft looks to young and cheap and don't get me started on Old Navy and Gap. I love Brooks Brothers and try to hit their sales. Any other suggestions? Talbots always seemed like where my grandmother shopped but may? Thoughts?
