A New Year! A New 2022 Focus (It is About Being Me)!

Happy new year (five days late), everyone! First, I hope you enjoyed your holidays in a colorful way. Secondly, hopefully, you also got to enjoy some much-deserved downtime. Our family had a fantastic long winter break and made many memories. Today is the first day back to school for our daughter, so it feels like a new year all over again for me! Therefore, for me, being that it is a quasi-new year today means the opportunity to start anew. This includes a fun, important 2022 focus I have been working on for a long time for me.

What is this fun, important focus?

A new focus? Huh?

Of course, we have all heard of new year resolutions and goals. Admittedly, I have never been successful at this start-of-the-year resolution or goal thing. Moreover, although my intentions are sincere, the self-inflicted pressure of one big resolution overwhelms me, and my anxiety skyrockets. Therefore, I find myself not choosing to proactively make myself more anxious than I already am!

Naturally, the idea of my 2022 focus started pushing its way to the forefront of my mind in an exciting way. Moreover, it took zero thought to what this focus is for me. It has been a focus of mine for some time. Each year, I get closer and closer to realizing how this focus overpowers everything else. It is what makes me happy and the person I have the opportunity to be for both my family and me.

However, it is not a cut-and-dry focus. It is a focus that will be ongoing. In fact, this focus will be the biggest part of me for the rest of my life.

My 2022 focus? Being me!

Being me!

Yep, that is right. It is finally time for me to be me! What does being me mean to me (it is beginning to sound like a tongue twister!)?

First, throughout my life, I have dealt with many ups and downs like everyone.

Additionally, I have experienced crippling depression and anxiety for long periods of time. Tack on many years of painful infertility, surgeries, medications, injections (so many injections), and the traumatic loss of our beautiful, son JJ in Heaven, and I lost much of myself emotionally, mentally, and physically.

The real me is colorful, happy, positive, fun-in-the-sun, a loud laugher, and always up for a new adventure; big or small. I am different and unique and love my family and friends. I love creativity, connecting with people, and sharing my love of all things fun and colorful! Things that make me happy are not always things that make other people happy, and that is A-OK.

The real me also gets overwhelmed, has off-days, requires sleep, and craves a regular connection with my family and friends.

Most importantly, my family is my everything. Our daughter is my sidekick, and she is my drive to be me. Watching her watch me the past seven-plus years has given me the overwhelming clarity to do everything in my power to be me.

Champion of women

Seiler Says

Creating Seiler Says has been a huge labor of love. Furthermore, this brand of mine I am creating is truly the professional career pivot that has helped transform me into being me! I am passionate about inspiring women with colorful, fun, affordable, style and fashion for every facet of their life. 

2022 will be a year of ups and downs, I’m sure. But, as long as I continue to be me, I can do it. Tell me, do you have a 2022 focus? Lastly, cheers to a new year!

Amazon Favorite Colorful Fashion Finds | November 2021

Amazon November’s favorite fashion finds are here! First, it is always fun to look back to the previous month. Secondly, that is especially true during the frantic (whoops, did I say that?) holiday season. November seems so calm and every day. Especially compared to December that is packed full of fun holiday celebrations, festivities, and shopping!

In addition to all of the December holiday events and celebrations, our family has another momentous occasion. Today is our 15th wedding anniversary! Today is also the 16th anniversary of our engagement. Early December is so beautiful. There are colorful and bright lights surrounding you everywhere you look! Furthermore, our family is lucky enough to live in Kansas City, the home of out-of-this-world Country Club Plaza holiday lights!

November’s weather in Kansas City was made for sweater-wearing. Without further adieu, here are some of my favorite Amazon sweaters, shacket, and tops I bought in November.

Amazon Favorite Fashion Finds: Sweaters

Amazon plaid houndstooth sweater vest fashion

This plaid, houndstooth sweater vest paired with a basic white long-sleeved shirt, black leggings, and boots is my adult “circa 1990s” throwback from my teenage years. I am just missing my Doc Martens! Available in multiple colors, this sweater vest has quickly become my most worn outfit. I would wear this sweater every day if I could!

November Amazon colorful wide striped crew sweater finds

If it’s going to be cold out there, you might as well own it! This cozy, colorful wide-striped crew sweater is casual and super versatile. Throw it on with skinny jeans or leggings, and you’re done. Furthermore, this colorful sweater is also available in multiple colors and is extremely comfortable. Thanksgiving outfit choice was made easy thanks to this fun, holiday-perfect, sweater.

Amazon striped sweater fashion finds

Colorful, soft & stretchy striped sweaters are where it is at. First, these colors! Second, the comfort! Third, did I mention how soft and comfortable this wide striped color stripe sweater is? Skinny jeans make this an effortless, put-together look.

Amazon November  solid, turtleneck sweater

Next, did you really think I would not share a classic, solid, turtleneck sweater? The variety of color options along with the gold buttons make this sweater a must-have for every closet.

Favorite Finds: Shackets & Tee Shirts

Amazon plaid shacket

Moving on to this versatile beauty. Shackets are all-the-rage. And, I understand why! Button it up or wear it open over a solid, basic shirt. Additionally, it is the easiest outfit and/or jacket ever when paired with leggings and boots or athletic shoes. Choose from eight colors of plaid— from basic to bold. Moreover, this shacket has pockets! Oh, how I love anything with pockets.

Amazon Sunshine and Whiskey tee shirt

Finally, I would not be sharing the love if I did not share the softest tee shirt I own! While whiskey isn’t my thing, the sunshine, bright colors, and ultra-soft tee-shirt make this my November favorite. Lastly, there are multiple colors available to you to choose from.

I hope you have found my Amazon November’s favorite fashion finds helpful. You can find past Amazon, colorful, favorite fashion finds posts here and here. Our family wishes you a festive, meaningful, fun, and colorful holiday season!

Happy “IT” Winter Coat For You

The happy “IT” winter coat for you is my winter coat. However, I must admit, I did not have any idea I was buying the most amazing winter coat on the planet (seriously!) when I purchased my warm, down, jacket on Amazon many winters ago.

Moreover, I vividly recall ordering this Orolay coat on an extremely hot, sweltering, sunny, day in mid-July 2019! Furthermore, like many shoppers, I was shopping the Amazon Prime Day online sales event and not even thinking about winter (I mean, it was one million degrees humidity that day in Kansas City!).

However, I visually spotted a classic, simple, hooded, warm, cozy winter coat with multiple pockets, and I was hooked! Knowing that I desperately needed a new winter coat in six months, once the weather flipped from hot to cold, I decided the Amazon Orolay coat was worth buying on that hot summer day. First, I knew I could easily return the winter coat for free if the coat did not work out for me. Secondly, I decided to go out on a color limb for me and order this army green color. Shopping hint: This amazing winter coat is now available in a wide variety of colors!

Amazon Orolay Winter Jacket Coat

You Will Soon Understand Why This Happy Winter Coat Is “IT”.

First, where do I begin? Orolay’s women’s thickened down jacket is winter warm without being too warm. If you are not following me, hang tight! I promise I will explain myself. The coat’s length is not too short, and it is not too long. Specifically, this makes-me-happy winter coat covers my long sweaters and it covers my behind! Furthermore, you will notice by the picture that the coat is cleverly designed to be a bit longer in the back than the coat’s front side.

Secondly, this happy “it” winter coat has zippers. In fact, this everyday winter jacket has zippers and pockets everywhere! Moreover, the six pockets are deep and comfortably hold gloves, mittens, your kid’s mittens, keys, phones, and more. Next, the fleece-lined hood is a cold-weather lifesaver!
