Hello 2017! So good to meet you. Pop cultural lore has it that 2016 was a trash year, from all the deaths of greats to the elections and ongoing global violence. For me personally 2016 was a very intense mix of joys and letdowns. It affected my blogging for sure. But I managed to post 36 outfits throughout the year, one more than 2015. I've collaged some of my favorite outfits into this post, and then there's the smoky palette giveaway. I always like to do giveaways at the end of each year. View the complete post to enter! 😊

Happy New Year's Eve! 🎉 🎇
Managed to sneak one more outfit post in here before 2017.
I'm not actually doing anything tonight, just chilling at home waiting for the ball drop. Same as last year. But that did not stop me from getting all dressed up earlier today with what I would wear if I were doing something. Just like last year! This is why I love blogging. I can wear stuff even if I have nowhere to go.
I have been waiting for the most minimal drop in temperature on NYE for years just to be able to wear this embellished vintage sweater that belonged to my mom. She's not sure if it's from the 80s or 90s. Love the little snowflake pattern. I paired it with this Champagne High Waist Pleated Flare Skirt from Romwe that I got in the spring (now on sale for $27.99). I also bought these iridescent statement drop earrings from The Limited during a recent 75% off sale because I knew they'd go really well with this outfit. And then of course there's my beautiful gaudy glitter heels from Steve Madden which I bought on sale on Black Friday (still going for the sale price here). Finally I added my Jessica McClintock Christiana Ball Mesh Minaudiere which I also wore in last year's NYE post.

Today I am ending the year with a bang with this massive post on Island Girl Miami, shot in September but posted in December for the familiar reasons you already know (two jobs, full-time therapist, part-time blogger, yadda yadda yadda).

Hi, hello! It's almost Christmas but here I am with a post from September. My blogging was so spotty in the second half of this year--I didn't even get to finish my Euro cruise posts. With my new job and a bunch of other (mostly good) stuff that's been happening, I haven't had much time for my favorite hobby. Usually I don't have time to take outfit photos, but now I have the opposite problem with way too many photos that need to be edited for way too many posts that need to be made!
