My oh my, it's been such a long time since I last did this! But here I am with a Christmas post. I loved my day outfit for this year. It was another warm weather Christmas this year, so I wore my custom-made, off-the-shoulder plaid top by local designer Alice Marie. I paired it with all the red I could find in my closet, including my favorite Sephora lip stain, my gorgeous Melissa flats, and my good ol' red sunnies. I added my new bag that my mom gifted me for Christmas-- she got this beautiful Michael Kors bag for just $15 at Macy's after a 30% coupon and her Thanks for Sharing money was applied. Amazing!! I learned from the best. Then I finished it off with simple jewelry, including my Alex and Ani emerald birthstone ring and a black jewel choker necklace.

Then for the nighttime I wore my $9 velvet crop top from Shein, green suede pants, and my chunky glitter Steve Madden heels. I kept my same red lipstick from the day, and added a crystal necklace and bracelet. I loved how daring and out there this outfit was. My friends kept calling me a mermaid. Thanks, friends!! If I could be a professional mermaid, I would. :)

Rose Gold Beauties

Well, clearly I don't blog anymore, but something about these rose gold beauties I encountered today made me want to head on over to Polyvore and make this little collection. Then I came over here and published this post, for old times' sake!

People don't really read blogs like they used to anymore-- it's all about the 'gram nowadays. Apparently not even Snapchat is as much of a thing for bloggers anymore? Idk, I've been out of it for a few months, which is apparently equal to about 5 years, ha. These days all I do is work, and between the never-ending demands of my job and the crippling perfectionism that made me edit photos like a sloth, I realized I just couldn't blog anymore.

I do want to create an end-of-year post, just for me and any future kids/grandkids who might encounter this little blog of mine one day. :)
Because so much shit went down this year. It has been absolutely insane, and has forever changed who I am. So dramatic, but I kid you not, 2017 really was that transformative for me.

In case I don't quite get to it, let's have a proper sign off:

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
