Happy New Year!!

       Can you believe it's already 2014? time sure does fly when you're having fun. 2013 was a really good year for me and I'm hoping 2014 will be just as lovely. I had to work late NYE so I spent the first hours of the new year at home in my jammies with some celebratory champagne, classy. This year I hope to focus more on my career and really get that going, that's my number one resolution. I am also resolving to blog more! Things sort of fell off here in 2013, while I did post a bit it wasn't nearly as much as I would have liked. My personal life got busier and I made little time for blogging, so this year I promise to balance that more and come back with more content then ever before!

Dress: ASOS Booties: Target Earrings: Ecuador Bracelet: Marshall Fields (old)

       Since I didn't go out for New Years Eve the first outfit post of 2014 is actually from 2013, go figure.  Anyway, I wore this dress twice recently so I figured I'd show you the various ways I styled it.  I wore the first look to one of my good friends from Elementary/ Middle School's wedding. The wedding was lovely and she looked goregeous, I had to hold myself back from crying while she walked down the aisle. It's odd when your friends start getting married, but I'm very happy for her. I had a dress all planned out to wear, then I got the invitation and found out it would be a shorter wedding in the afternoon and decided to go a bit more casual.  I thought this dress fit the bill perfectly. I'm in love with the wrap look and the cute little birds on it,  the neckline is a bit too low for most occasions but that's an easy fix. I decided to dress it up a bit with a cute bracelet I wore to my prom forever ago, some peacock earrings I got in Ecuador, and black booties.

Dress: ASOS Boots: Payless 
       I also wore the dress on Christmas. I had a very busy Christmas in 2013, I went to my boyfriends mom's house for Christmas brunch and then we both headed to my grandparent's house for Christmas dinner. There were a lot of families, I'm pretty sure we were both exhausted by the end of the day. But it all went well and we got the meet the families part over with for the most part.  Anyway since I was meeting some of his family for the first time and wasn't sure what everyone would be wearing I decided to go with this dress as it's casual but still kinda dressed up. I also wore my new favorite boots from Payless. I seriously need more boots in my life. I really like this look and have recently fallen head over heels for wrap dresses, so look for more of those in the coming months.
