So this is the new year

This is one of those dresses that the color doesn't show up exactly right and the detail is lost in the camera, but that doesn't stop it from being beautiful. It was a Christmas gift from my older sister and I love it. The peachy pink and heart shaped bodice have me swooning. It's the right blend of fancy and girly aka what all dresses should be made of. I've been on the hunt for a pair of comfortable heeled and affordable booties. I know, I was asking for a lot. Luckily, I scored these beauties randomly the other night at Target. I want to go everywhere so I never have to take them off. Obsessed.

I can't believe this is my first outfit post of 2014! How weird does that number sound? The answer is very weird. The best part about the New Year? It's mine and my boyfriend's three year anniversary. Absolutely mind blowing that he isn't sick of me yet.

Oh, the blog got a make over for the New Year. Hope y'all like it.





Outfit Details:
Dress: ModCloth (gift from my sister)

  1. Always torn with your blog makeovers because I always like the changes but I always liked the way they looked before. You are very talented with designing up headers and such. But this new one is a great way to start out a new year.

    This outfit is so very you too!

  8. I know, there's something about 2014 that just sounds too futuristic and weird. Haha, Happy New Year!
    Also, I just love this outfit girl, the sweetheart bodice is so flirty and cute, especially when paired with a matching floral crown. Congrats on finding your dream boots! They look just as much stylish as they do comfy - best combo ever.
    Love the new blog design by the way! I'm already getting bored with mine...sigh.

  11. I always am mind blown when I reach another anniversary with my boyfriend. It'll be 7 this year. Whaaat? I'm old.
    Anyway, this dress. It's gorgeous! I love the sweetheart neckline and all the lace. I really enjoy how you made it wintry with the darker tights and ankle boots. The flowers in your hair are super pretty too.

    Also - happy anniversary and happy new year too!

  12. I want to steal this ensemble from you! Everything about it I love. I've been wanting to wear my floral crowns, but it feels odd with snow everywhere. And congratulations on the anniversary! I always feel so old when I look at how long Paul and I have been together. Oh, and Happy New Year!

    Speaking of adorable, this dress. It's gorgeous. And these booties. And your redesign. Everything is so pretty.

  14. Love a good ModCloth find and great to stumble upon a fellow blogger in the Akron area. I'm currently downtown Cleveland but my roots grow deep in Wadsworth, Ohio. Anyway, great style, taste in music, & love the typographic masthead.

    1. Hi Elle,
      I actually have the comments turned off of that post. Weekend style icon posts don't usually generate a lot of comments, but I still love to post them, so I simply turn 'em off so there's no pressure!

  20. This outfit is so pretty! I love the colors! The peach and grey are so pretty and dainty together, plus the headband completely pulls the whole romantic look together.

    I'm with you on 2014 sounding weird. I think the new year's number always sounds weird when it first starts. Happy anniversary to you and your boyfriend! :)

  21. i'm always amazed how you do a complete blog makeover just like that... although it prob just seems just like that to me and you spent hours on it. do you want to go into graphic design? i'd def recommend you for it! but anyway this dress really is lovely and i loved seeing your instagram on you & your bf's 3 yrs, i had no idea, that's a huge milestone, congrats to you two!
