Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and have recovered sufficiently from them! I started the new year with a virus and a sick household which hasn’t been the most fun. That said, I am totally not letting it get me down. The new year brings with it new excitement as I have some new things coming down the pipeline later this month AND some goals for the blog this year that I’ll be sharing with you some time next week.
|Dress: ELOQUII (Available here)|
Seriously, I am all about making 2017 an amazing year. My eyes are on the prize, and I feel motivated to stick to my plans and see what the future holds. So, a funky little virus is nothing – it will go away, and life will keep on going.
|Boots: Target (Available here)|
I am also embracing winter by deciding I will wear whatever I want even if it means bare legs and bare arms! This dress from ELOQUII was just too fabulous to wait to share it until the weather warmed up. I am pretty sure I had a fever when I took this photo, so the cool air actually felt pretty darn good! The temps have been taking more of a dip this week and we’re expecting snow tomorrow, so we’ll see how much the bare legs hold up!
The statement ruffle on this dress is just so great, and after a few alterations, I felt like this dress was made just for me! The dress has a French phrase written on it – which means “to lie in.” I am alllll about sleeping in and allllll about lying in without sleep too, so I love the sentiment! 😉
I thought about styling this dress with white pumps, but decided the boots were the better choice for winter. I like that the boots add a little more of a downtown vibe to the look, which I think makes them a little cooler of a choice. I’m sure once spring hits, I will also be giving the white pumps a little play too!
I will be sharing a few of my New Year’s Resolutions with you all very soon – did you set any goals or resolutions for yourself this year?
