The Neckline Cheat Sheet

There are multiple ways to accessorize a neckline – but these are handy suggestions, when you don’t want to think about it!

One of my favorite books is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. In a pivotal scene between a “Greaser” and a “Soc” - two people on the opposite ends of the spectrum in many ways - the two come to the conclusion that maybe their lives aren’t so different. After all, they share the same sunset. “It’s rough all over, “ states one of the main characters. It sure is. It’s beautiful too. A few of my favorite sky shots in the stories. If you’re looking for an instant dose of peace, I highly recommend looking up.

Since I missed #nationalicecreamday, can we talk about bread? And I’m not talking about a crusty sourdough, or maybe I am. There’s a line in a popular prayer that goes something like this - “give us this day our daily bread.” A very specific, thoughtful, and practical ask. The prayer doesn’t say “give us bread with a side of caviar while on a yacht...” or “give us unlimited bread, like at Olive Garden.”

The simplicity of “one day at a time,” can be the remedy when anxiety and fear are being served up like unlimited bread sticks.

This post is inspired by a lesson I picked up at @ecclesia_houston last Sunday. I needed to hear it, so I thought I would share.

When business as usual is on hold, it might be time to go blue. Blue ocean, that is. Developed by Chan Kim & Renée Mauborgne, a blue ocean strategy is about creating a new market space. So, what’s a “red ocean” strategy? You guessed it. In a red ocean strategy, you are competing in an existing market. While it might seem risky in the midst of a pandemic, so much upheaval can be the perfect growth opportunity. There’s even a framework to help you create a blue ocean all your own. The four components of the framework are:

ELIMINATE – what industry-standard factors can you cut out?
RAISE - what factors should you amp up?
REDUCE – what factors can you tone down?
CREATE – what can you uniquely offer?

Here’s an example: Cirque du Soleil eliminated animal acts and star performers, raised the artistry and venue quality, reduced the “danger” and thrills, and created a fusion of theater and circus. They also raised the price as compared to a standard circus.

Ready for the two-fer? If you’re not ready to apply the blue ocean strategy to a business venture yet - I think this same framework can be applied personally.

I’m going to share a helpful framework a few of the architects at my firm use when they meet with new clients. This is the question they ask:”If your brand/office space was a car, what kind of car would it be?” This question frames a conversation about values and how those values are translated.
Sometimes, when we get lost in the burnout of the day-to-day, and our goals seem a million steps down the road, we can lose focus. It happens! And when it does - a simple question such as this can help us recommit to what we are all about or change course if needed. This spring, I needed to step away to do just that. Thanks for bearing with me!
The creation of NiftyLane came from the epiphany that I had a unique purpose and journey, and I needed to take a proactive role in living it. I realized I wasn’t the only one in that same boat. So this account became about sharing inspiration, moments of self-discovery and growth, and of course, style.

A simple framework can help us regain our focus and help us discover that deep down, we are really a 1980ish Mercedes SL convertible. 😉 What kind of car embodies your brand?
