Where I once thought the first of the year was time to shed all things winter in order to shed the remnants of the holidays, I now find it not only wonderfully indulgent, but necessary to fill my life with the warmth that winter accoutrements bring. An icy white faux fur with a silk back tossed on the foot of the bed, strings of white lights & candles in the bathroom, softened white linens on the dining and sofa tables, wool capes and cashmere scarves. The Southerner in me is reluctant to recognize that there is such a thing as winter following the holidays, as if "Happy New Year" is equal to the coming of spring...but it's not, and I'm growing more and more in love with the winter whites & soft pinks, mid afternoon cups of tea & toasty fires, bare tress & arrangements of evergreen that January has to offer.
What are your favorite January winter moments and activities? xo, Jolie
