Focusing on inner-peace inevitably produces your peace on the outside. There are many aspects of our lives we can re-work and re-focus as we begin to refresh for 2019. Don’t you agree there is much opportunity for movement in a positive direction? As years progress for me (smile), I’d like to think I’m making progress in my attempts to “just do better”. There are more opportunities for more leaps. And you know what I am finally grasping? Those leaps do not have to be so distant. Thank goodness, no major races being attempted here. As I see it, these few days into the New Year, I’m striving for steady, balanced, and forward movement but all in slow motion. There’s no need to rush it. Makes sense?

With that being said, I have a question for you. Do you find yourself taking a more daring approach to your wardrobe style? Boy, I’d have to say, I sure do. It’s so much fun giving myself permission these days to be a bit bolder with color and style. We are seeing this approach in the marketplace – all while maintaining a classic ensemble.

I created a selection of items to get you started. Expand your stride a little bit and take a closer look below:

A textured pewter metallic stripe adds flair to the classic lace-up style of our Metallic Stripe Oxfords by Easy Spirit®.

These are just a few things that National features to jump start your new and exciting wardrobe. While you have fun with new founded perspectives, don’t forget we are here for you. There is a wonderful post by Parker this week which helps us move forward into 2019 with a unique way to choose a special word especially for us; practically applying it toward our personal progress. Creative and clever, eh?! See it here: .
