Lace Up Dress – Denim Popover (similar/similar/similar) | Black Reversible Faux Fur Vest: JustFab (almost exact/similar/similar) | Over The Knee Boots: Sam Edelman (almost exact/similar) | Black Pebbled Leather Satchel
This will be my last post for 2016 on the blog and I’m ending it on a sassy note with this laced up shirtdress look. You have to go out with a bang, am I right? The lace up style has been all the rage this season so when I found this chambray denim lace up dress I was all about it. With the edgy neckline I decided to pair the dress with my favorite heeled over the knee boots and let me tell you, I feel like I could wear this look everyday. I actually went to go Christmas shopping in this look after I snapped some pictures and debated changing at first and then thought you know what, who cares because all that matters is I feel damn good wearing this outfit right now. I originally felt that way because we were going to be in a casual environment and I was nervous about the stares/under breath comments about my somewhat “sexy” look but confidence hit me instead. Exuding that instead may bring different kind of stares or comments like “wow, she looks good” or “I love her outfit”. So next year I hope I wear more confidence on my sleeve and whip my hair back and forth in the process.2016 was a whirlwind of a year for me and I have a gut instinct that 2017 is going to be one of those great years I thoroughly enjoy. This year I turned 30, went through a long term breakup, traveled the world (Mexico, London, Dublin, Spain, Los Angeles, Atlanta, 11 other states on a two week cross USA road trip- check out my travel diary tab at the top of the blog for some reviews), met so many amazing virtual friends, finished my Master’s Degree, and QUIT MY JOB/CAREER to pursue other passions. A year with both ups and downs but good nonetheless. I have so many goals for myself next year and next week I hope to share more of that with y’all. I want to end by saying I am so grateful for all the love and support I get for this blog, thank you so much for continuing to follow me on this journey. I hope next year I can continue to grow even further and work ten times harder for my dreams to be a reality. I plan on spending my New Years Eve on my friends couch drinking wine in my pajamas and then having a New Years brunch/Sunday Funday. I wish y’all the happiest New Year and hope 2017 is the bomb dot com for you as well. XO!
