This is my first outfit post in over a month... and that feels so strange. December was a weird month. I took it super easy and just sort of coasted through the month, dealing with holiday stuff, family responsibilities, a sick little dude, and our biggest Honeybean event of the year. I guess I was sort of trying to "train" myself to not stress so much about the blog and just let it do it's thing. I mean, I guess I can't write about my life if I don't go live it, right? Truth be told, I didn't do much of that either this month. I nursed a stomach bug and a sinus infection, and I watched entirely too much Grey's Anatomy! I spent a good portion of yesterday planning out January and what I want to achieve/write about, etc. so hopefully January won't look like December around here. In any case, I hope you'll stick around for the New Year because I've got some fun things planned!
I've been coveting this dress for a long, long time and I'm so glad I finally ordered it. It's so beautiful! The cut is so flattering and it looks great with or without a petticoat. I kept it super simple with black everything since it's the middle of winter and black seems seasonally-appropriate. I feel like this dress didn't need to be challenged by anything bright or bold. The florals on the dress have just enough contrast to shine. Believe me when I say I want to live in this dress forever! haha Lately I've been wearing nothing but bright red nail polish. (This color is January by Julep! So fitting for the New Year!) I feel like it's so classic and I can't help but feel slightly more put together when my nails are red. Anyone else? Am I super weird here? I think next time I wear this dress out and about I'll dress up my lips with a bright pink or red lipstick, too.
Today I'm hoping to wrap up some design projects and get more planning done for the blog in January. It honestly doesn't even feel like a Monday, and part of that's probably due to Toby not being in school. I've been trying to rack my brain for things to do with Toby for New Years Eve but I'm coming up short. Any of y'all have any suggestions? To be honest I'll probably be asleep by 10pm haha! I'm trying to figure out when I got so painfully old... Do you have any fun NYE plans in the works?
Here's to 2014! I'm ready for ya! xo
