A new year often means a new everything - new attitude, new outlook, new goals, new wisdom, and new opportunities. Who doesn't like new?! New means fresh, shiny, and exciting, and the new year is chock full of all that good stuff rolled into one big adventure. Hopefully everyone's keeping up with their new years resolutions, but as for me, I'm just going to keep doing me and live my life to the fullest, enjoying every moment!

For me, this outfit represents excitement and new beginnings simply because it's an ensemble that I never would have even considered putting together a year ago from today. Over the past year my personal style has grown tremendously and I've been very open to different looks and pieces that I would normally just pass by while shopping. I've learned to combine accessories, standout, and not be afraid of color. I now love to experiment with everything I have in my closet and try unexpected combinations and play around with layers. I know that a year from today my style will be even more developed and I can't wait! 

Cheers to 2013 - I hope yours is off to a fabulous start!

  16. Happy New Year Kat. You look very cute and a good idea to dress up the denim shirt. The gold head band is a very nice touch, it suits you really well.
