While it may be an increasingly unpopular opinion, I love the hope of a new year—the promise of a fresh start and a blank planner to fill with all my wildest aspirations. Will I lose this new year momentum by the time February rolls around? Probably, if I’m being honest with myself. But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming big every January and imagining what life I want to make for myself this year.

I still have to make a few gifts, but hopefully I can finish those up today… I wanted to share one last festive outfit before Wednesday, which would be perfect for a holiday party or Christmas Eve mass. I love that this look also feels a little work appropriate, like a spicy Christmas boss lady. Weird to say? Probably. Continue reading “Fashionable New Year’s Resolutions”
