2013 in fashion and photos

The end of another year. This one certainly flew by, and it is another year in which I can reflect and appreciate all the wonderful things this blog has brought into my life. From monthly brunches with my fabulous Connecticut blog friends, to trips to New York City for fashion week fun, to collaborating with some amazing brands, it's been a fun year!

Last January I wrote about resolutions and things I wanted to change in my life. One of those things was that I wanted a new job. Well, I'm half way there now, as I got laid off just before Christmas. Sometimes you just need a little shove in the right direction, right? I am hopeful a new and amazing job is in my (immediate) future! Wish me luck!

Here is to a brilliant new year!

New Years Eve Style

This little gold dress was picked up on clearance last January at a local shop called Ciao Bella, and as unfortunate as it is that it sat unworn for an entire year, it's nice to have something new in the closet ready to go.

I've mentioned before how underrated long sleeve dresses are, because truly, not having to worry about an extra layer to keep my arms from freezing in the middle of the winter is a wonderful thing. This dress is also ridiculously comfortable and sparkly without being over the top. Perfect for ringing in the new year tomorrow night!
