Just a couple quick notes on the outfit if ♫ bay-bay, this is what you came for : welcome to my version of a power outfit, for when I had to speak in front of my entire company at our year end staff meeting! Lol @ how far “power outfits” have come for women, amiright?

This blouse is vintage Dior, and yeah, I even hate myself after saying that. Both the blouse and these Rag & Bone booties are kinda “loan-hand-me-downs” from my sister- which I am totally fine with. The only problem being that now that I’ve tasted Rag & Bone booties, Target is not nearly as palatable.

I specifically don’t have an official “re-cap of 2016” post planned because you know what? 2016 was not my favorite year. If I had a phrase to describe 2016 it would be “plagued with uncertainty.” Does not warrant a blog post. (I did compile a post with “My Favorite Outfits of 2016” because yay, something I can control!)

I would be remiss to say 2016 sucked, because a lot of great things happened, and I have so much to be thankful for, I really do. So fineee, real quick, a few of my highlights from the past year:

- traveled to London/Munich/Paris
- my brother got married and I got a new sister
- I officially got promoted into a new role at work
- hosted Steph & Tim and Rachel in Nashville
- I didn’t quit blogging! And, I'll say it- I took my content to the next level. 

And at the risk of sounding like a total loser:

You know how sometimes after a break-up, you have to edit your hobbies a bit? Because maybe a certain hobby reminds you of another person too much, or it was the thing you always did together? I’m so happy that blogging has remained something that’s totally mine, that I still love to do. (Not that Hunter didn’t help me out a ton- shout-out to him for taking so many pictures.) I know I can come to this space on any given day and be able to honestly write about what’s going on & how I’m feeling, and I’m so thankful for that. Thank you, truly, for being a part of this outlet for me!

As opposed to 2016, where my blogging goal was just to not quit, I do have some goals for 2017 around here aaaand I hope you will stick around to find out what they are!

Ok, I guess I’ll talk to you guys NEXT YEAR (<-- my favorite joke! teehee!) Have an incredible New Years Eve! Be safe and slayyy with those NYE outfits.
