Happy New Year! I don’t ever really make resolutions at the start of each year but I do get a really good feeling about this one. James got me a great planner for the year from Danielle Laporte that really helps focus on manifesting what you want from life as opposed to just scheduling things. This year I do feel really empowered to take on what I want, and really push myself to accomplish all my goals. This year I’ll be turning 30 and the word that’s really resonating for me with my personal style is SASSY. I have up until now, basically dressed pretty conservatively, but lately I’ve been feeling myself while showing a little more skin, so I’m going to embrace that this year a little more.
This outfit makes me feel like a total badass! I paired these velvet shorts (yes they have pockets!) with some sheer black tights, this is such a great way to keep warm and layer in cooler weather while still looking cute. The black studded boots I got from ShoeDazzle are such a good Chloe dupe for only $40, but I wear them so often and get so many compliments on them, the splurge would be worth it for a shoe enthusiast! These boots were definitely made for walking and I’m gunna walk right into 2018 stomping in them.
My favorite part of this outfit though, has got to hands down be this amazingly soft varsity sweater from Express. It looks AMAZING with it’s slouchy off-the-shoulder fit, and the bright pop of red is one of my favorite statement outfit colors. For the cooler weather we’ve been having down here lately, adding a leather moto jacket is a great way to layer it up even more if you’re in a very cold climate.
All in all I’m really ready to take on a New Year and make the most of the time I’m given. Do you have any resolutions or Life Goals for 2018? Share them with me in the comments!
