When the calendar hits March, it doesn’t matter if another cold front comes through or not! My mind is in spring mode, and there’s no going back. Lol! Minus the allergies, spring is the best season for fashion! Although I love chunky sweaters and comfy leggings, I am SO ready for a wardrobe refresh with bright colors and fun prints. I love discovering the newest trends, and incorporating them into my closet! 🙂
A few of my personal favorite trends for Spring 2022 are colorful crochet and fringe, cute crop tops, platform sneakers and girly feminine pieces! It’s no surprise that some of these are popular. I rounded up items from each trend to shop below! I already ordered half of this, so I’ll be sure to share when it arrives! Have a wonderful weekend!
I will be the first to admit that I don’t follow these tips every single morning, but I can see a huge difference in my mindset and productivity when I do! Even though most people have gone back to the office, I know some of you like myself still work from home. And let’s be honest! Working from home is great, but it can also lead to many distractions. That’s why I think starting your day off with a solid routine is the best solution to have a successful day! 🙂
Wake Up Early
Luckily, I can always count on Baker to make sure I’m awake by 7am every morning, but I actually enjoy it! Waking up early makes me feel like I have extra time to accomplish all of my daily tasks. There’s no better feeling than when I’m finished by lunch, and I can start on the next day’s to-do list early if I want to!
Lay Your Clothes Out The Night Before
As silly as this sounds, I’m less likely to change out of my pajamas (especially if I’m doing computer work) if I don’t already have an idea of what I’m going to put on! The nights I plan my outfit beforehand (even just a pullover and leggings) always lead to me staying in my routine better in the morning! This is also great for people back in the office.
Change Out of Your Pajamas and Get Ready For The Day
I think this tip and the one above go hand in hand! Like I said, laying out your clothes the night before really helps you to not waste time in the mornings. And if you work from home like me, you can probably tell the difference between the days you get ready and the days you don’t! I 100% accomplish more because I feel better overall!
Coffee and Devotional
I am so guilty of rushing around and starting my day before I have sat down for just 5 minutes to read my daily devotional! Since I love a good cup of morning coffee, I try to drink mine while having quiet time. I think starting my day off like this impacts my mental health in the most positive way, and I highly encourage you to try it! My favorite devotionals are Jesus Calling or New Morning Mercies that are both available on Amazon!
Plan Out Your Day Beforehand
There are few things I love more than my daily planner! I truly enjoy writing down and planning my day along with brainstorming new content ideas, partnership opportunities, etc. Most people have probably switched to digital planners, but I never will. I find too much satisfaction in drawing a line through each task as I complete it! Lol. I mainly plan out my week on Sunday afternoons just to get idea of what’s on my schedule and what I need to add!
I hope these small tips lead to big improvements in your own morning routine! I’m excited to continue implementing them in my own life. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I have been on a major brainstorming kick the past week between Reels content and other ideas I want to incorporate into Sassy Southern Blonde! I even thought about starting a monthly newsletter for email subscribers, but the IG poll answered what I already assumed. Most of y’all don’t read newsletters and you probably aren’t going to start. Hahah! That’s okay though because I think I came up with a better solution. I still want to share monthly updates, but it will just be found in a blog post here! 🙂
Basically, it’ll be a newsletter within a blog post! I plan to recap top sellers of the month, recent blog posts, favorite purchases, the month’s partnerships, graphics I created and of course exciting things happening with Bo and Baker! Each month will vary slightly depending on what is happening. I am SO happy about this idea, and I hope it’s a way to find information you’re looking for while learning more about me. Since January was a slow month and has already passed, we’ll start with February! It might get lengthy FYI. Lol!
Baker is 8 months old in February, and I’m sending him to a Mother’s Morning Out program starting next week! It’s hard to find a place that’s a great fit with an available spot, but everything finally came together! For safety reasons, I obviously won’t be sharing the actual program, but it’s super close to our house and will be perfect for dropping him at while I get uninterrupted work done!
After these last few months, I have a newfound respect for stay at home moms and especially work from home moms! Some days are more productive than others, but I’d be lying if I said I’m not looking forward to a break. And I’m also not going to pretend I feel guilty about sending him either! The truth is I am SO excited because I think it will be good for both of us. Edit to add that I’ve heard nothing but great things about the program, it’s super small and again VERY close to my house!
