Shiny New Year

January 4, 2016








Sequin Dress: F21+ | Bracelet: Kate Spade | Glasses: Derek Cardigan | Boots: Jeffrey Campbell

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely holiday season. Mine was low-key and cozy, as usual, surrounded by my favorite friends and family. I had lots of fun holiday parties and wore this amazing oversized sequin t-shirt dress to each and every one. No shame repeating outfits this year–this dress is the best ever. So easy, comfy, and sparkly!

This has been a pretty quiet year for my blog, but one I’ve been proud of nonetheless. I really enjoy focusing on quality over quantity and feel good about my layout upgrades, improved photography, and evolving style.

2015 was a good year, but I’m super excited to dive into 2016. I have some really exciting work projects I’ll be finishing up and publicly launching, Midwest Craft Con with my STL Craft Mafia babes, tickets to Hamilton(!!!) in NYC, and best of all, Andrew and I are finally taking our big trip to Japan in the spring! I couldn’t be more ready. xo

  • I love everything about this look. Your nails are perfect! Happy 2016!

    • Ahhh thank you! I’ve been growing them out and obsessively getting gel manicures for months and I’m super proud of them so this is a great compliment haha. <3

  • Everything about this is AMAZING! That dress is perfection, I’ve always wanted to own a sequin dress but just haven’t found one that I like yet, one day. Cannot wait to see what adventures come your way in 2016, maybe another trip out to AZ?! :)

  • That dress is gorgeous and you look amazing!! I really wish the shipping to Australia wasn’t so crazy from forever21 cause they really make some great styles!
