Hi sweets! It’s 2016! I know I have been really bad about posting on here, especially since I was trying (attempting) to do more videos on my youtube during the month of December and I’ll let you in on a secret… It takes me forever to edit them. I am learning (slowly) how to get better at it but by the time that I am finished with uploading them I sometimes don’t feel like posting them here as well BUT I am going to try to change that this year! If you aren’t subscribed to my channel here it is if you want to catch up on what I’ve been doing a little!
This outfit was kinda on repeat during my holiday season.. I am not one to wear tons of red or green so I decided to just stick with whites and neutrals. Winter sucks for a lot of reasons, but one good thing about it is that you (maybe this is just me, tmi..) don’t have to shave my legs as much! But of course I wanted to wear this dress for Christmas but had already showered and NOT shaved my legs. Enter the thigh high boots….. Life savers I tell ya!
Have you all made your new years resolutions (and kept them for the past week)? I don’t think I’ve ever actually made a resolution that is one small thing, except drink more water which I always try to do and end up having to go to the bathroom every thirty minutes for a week & then get sick of it and give up. I swear people who actually drink enough water have a bladder of steel.. I would love to hear from you guys about what you would like to see on here this year! I love blogging and interacting with you, so any inspiration you all want to give is more than welcome :)
Enough rambling.. Let’s let the 2016 adventures begin!!
We spent last week in Boston with family and there were definitely a few times that I was thankful for this jacket (like going to the Patriots game.. BRR!). It is so soft too that there were a couple times when I gave people hugs and they were shocked at how fuzzy it was! Not the worst feeling to wear a jacket all day that feels like I am snuggling in a blanket :) Now that we are back I want to be in full Christmas mode but I haven’t really even decorated yet. I am a sucker for twinkle lights though and have them out all year long but it definitely has started to feel festive because I can turn them on at like 3 pm!
PS obsessed with this shirt but I really wish I could actually wink…. I wanted to get a photo of me being cute and winking at the camera and now I have 25 photos of me just with my eyes closed.. World’s best blinker right here (or worst winker but I’m trying to focus on the positive)….
Okay I know what you are thinking… Another white dress? I am obsessed and I am not afraid to admit it! I love this one from Windsor Store (even though it is almost sold out!) because of the straps and cute back. And if that’s not enough I layered it under a kimono because why not wrap yourself up in a cocoon?!
And can we talk about these necklaces? They are each sooo stinking cute by themselves but I have been obsessed with layering necklaces for a while now and these ones are just so perfect together. I have always liked the saying that I would rather wear flowers in my hair than diamonds around my neck (as evidenced by my recent instagram photos..), but I think I will make an exception for this necklace :) I just love the look of the graphic design and element of quirkiness. When Charlie and I had been dating for a little while I remember asking him what adjective he thought described me (because isn’t that what all new couples do?….) and he said quirky and I loved it! I am definitely eclectic and that’s the way, uh huh uh huh, I like it.
Anyways, I am definitely going to be rocking it with the turquoise necklace all summer because if anything screams summer to me it is definitely turquoise. It must be because I picture spending my summers swimming in bright turquoise water, but then again the water in Connecticut is a murky dark blue soo I’m not quite sure how that’s going to happen.. Vacation time?!
Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!
I got this lace kimono a few weeks ago and I was instantly obsessed but it was still like thirty degrees out so I hung it up and admired it from a far.. But I am happy to say that I am no longer frozen and am actually breaking out all of my summer clothes! Including these shorts that I made last year and was always a bit too nervous to wear. What do you guys think? I am still unsure but I think they are a win. Back to the kimono.. It is perfffect. I love that it is so long but short sleeved because it is so easy to dress up or down. Like I could see wearing this over shorts like I have or a really pretty cream colored gown. So get used to seeing it on instagram :)
Have a lovely day!
