New Girl - New Year

Hi lovelies! I am back - for real this time. I needed the break until the new year, well, almost new year. I am starting fresh. Just to clear the air - I have been dealing with a break up. I will be fine, but the holiday season was just too much this year and I didn't want to pretend to be happy about things. I also didn't want to bring anyone else down in the process. I never could have imagined that losing someone could hurt this much or for this long, but at least it is a reminder that what we had was real. Everything will be time. I just wanted to get this out and in the open so that I can start moving on with my life.

I had a nice quiet holiday with family and friends. I saw Les Mis Christmas eve and it was fantastic!! I also won front row tickets to The Book of Mormon the day after Christmas - IT WAS AMAZING!!! I definitely want to see the show again if I get the chance. Saturday was my brother's 21st birthday and we went to Medieval Times that was a lot of fun as well. Aaaand now I can't believe that the year is coming to a close. I am pretty darn excited though for this year to end.

Exciting news!!! I am moving to Chicago at the end of January - wahooo! long as everything goes as planned. I will be moving in with two guys from college and it should be an adventure. I am envisioning my life as Zoey Deschanel's character on The New Girl, haha. Alright, not really (to be honest I have only seen two episodes of that show), but it should be a fun change of pace. For today's outfit I thought I would use Jess as my inspiration -

I should have left my hair wavy to truly go for Jess's look, oh well. I got this dress for Christmas and I love it. It is simple, but the cute bow belt really helps jazz it up. Another positive from all the crazy that has been going on in my life is that I lost all of my college weight - wahoo. Bathing suit season, here I come!

Outfit Details: Dress - Modcloth, Coat, boots & bag - thrifted, Tights - Betsey Johnson.

Tonight I will be spending my New Year's Eve in the city. I am still not entirely sure what I am going to wear, but I can guarantee that it will be sparkly ;]

Have a fun, safe, and happy New Year's everyone!


  1. You look adorable! And hang in there, m'am--I have a friend going through similar. I'm glad you found fun things to occupy your time with! And Chicago, that's awesome. :) Good luck! Happy new year!

    1. Thank you! It is so tough. It seems like a lot of people are going through the same thing this time of year :-/ Keeping busy does help though. Thank you so much! Hope your New Year is off to a good start.

  2. I am so jealous that you are moving to Chicago & secondly jealous that you got to see Book of Mormon!!! It's sold out in Manhatten for like ever and a day! I love that city! I'm sorry to hear about your break-up, they are never easy, but just take one day at a time and I'm sure your friends are only a phone call away if you need someone to talk to!

  11. I love this outfit on you.
    I feel your pain, girl. I just blogged about my breakup too and it happened in May. It's not easy but it's slowly(very slowly)getting easier. I hope your move goes well and I hope things look up for you soon. If you ever need to, shoot me an email, since I'm sure we're going through a lot of the same feelings and emotions.
    Happy New Year, Allison :]

  12. I'm sorry to hear about your break up, they are never easy and I went through so many in my day, give yourself time to heal and don't apologize for being hurt, it is hard to lose someone you care(d) for. You look gorgeous, I love these tights. Congrats on the news about moving to the big city, that is so freakin' exciting!


  13. I'm sorry about your breakup, dear, those are never fun. Give it some time to heal and you'll find a love just as great, if not greater. You look stunning in that dress, so it shouldn't be too hard to turn a few heads, at least. ;) Missed you a lot, though! Glad you're back!


  14. I'm so sorry to hear about your break up, but I'm glad you are trying to be positive! That's the best you can do. I hope everything works out with moving to Chicago and that moving really helps you move on. Your outfit is super cute, as always. I'm glad you're back to blogging and hope you're doing okay.

  15. Ah, I just read this. I'm sorry to hear about the break-up, but your adorbz, I know you'll bounce back. xoxoxo
