Hello Monday. How was your weekend? (To some of you, today may be a day off in honor of Dr. MLK!) It’s been freezing in Chicago… like seriously… yesterday was a “high” of 1°. I spent most of the weekend with family and close friends… my weekend was low-key… because really, the cold!!

So a lot of my goals this year have to do with following my passions; and hopefully discovering ways to make them pathways in life to be happy longterm, and also thrive financially. (Sounds like everyone’s goals, right!?) This week is the first week of the year that I will be incredibly focused on those goals… As you know, I’m on Pinterest an obsessive amount, and on my Life & Such Board, I tend to pin a lot of quotes. Here are some quotes from pins to add some inspiration to your week:

Also, I’ve been reading #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso… I highly recommend this book. It’s empowering, motivating, and inspiring… and most importantly, it’s a book that I happened to be reading at just the right time… what are you reading right now?

About my look… what do you think of this outfit? I love layering up; and both the tee and the cardigan that I am wearing are incredibly soft and cozy! Paired with some skinnys and pumps, and this casual cute look is ready for a multitude of occasions.

With Style & Love,


Amber

    Have a great week and pursue all you goals <3

  2. You look so beautiful, Amber; I love the all grey with the pop of pink!

  4. I love this look, Amber! Especially the shoes! They are gorgeous <3
    Also I think it's wonderful that you are focusing on your passions this year. I am trying to do the same thing.
    I never read girlboss but I have been hearing so much about it. Perhaps it's time for me to actually read it :)

  5. First off you look amazing, loving the pop of pink! I’m so with you on inspirational quotes, books, movies, etc. They really do give that little pump up you need! I think I’m going to order that book, in major need of a pump up haha! Another great quote is “Fail to plan, plan to fail”. I know it isn’t super pumpy but it always reminds me if I want to accomplish something I can’t just wing it. Hope your week is off to a great start!

    xx,
    Susie
