I woke up this morning with equal parts excitement and dread. January 1st, 2015.  

A new year and a new, giant, resolution:  

365 days, No Shopping


And so it begins. 

I had big plans for this post- really, I did. But an extra-long sleep in, an extra-long workout, and an extra-old camera with some issues, and here we are, January in Minnesota, with below freezing temperatures and losing daylight. What's a born and bred Minnesota girl to do? Layer up, throw on some favorites, and get those boots walking.  

And I'm serious about the layers. 2 sweaters.   

Lucid & Blue will be an account of 365 straight days of no shopping, making the basics work hard and the trends work easy. I must be crazy, and you might be too. Stay awhile.
