new year, new start!


Happy New Year, readers! Between the holidays, and now being sick, it’s clearly been a challenge to post- but I’m here now! I couldn’t get many photos of this look because it was -5 degrees with the wind chill and I couldn’t bear being outside any longer without a coat- even my dog thought it was madness. I hope everyone has had a good start to the year!

Top: Ann Taylor ($16 marked down from $70)

Pants: Ann Taylor Loft years ago!

Scarf: Target ($5 marked down from approx $20)

Shoes: Lula Townsend at DSW ($12 marked down from $79) (I just had them re-heeled and they are good as new!)

Bag: Reed for Kohl’s ($32 marked down from approx $120)

My husband got me this great nail art set for Christmas by Caption Polish (photos above). The art screens allow for stamping a ton of designs onto your nails. You can see my second attempt at nail stamping in the photos above (the first attempt was a bit of a struggle). If you’re thinking about trying your hand at nail stamping, I definitely recommend this set. There’s great online tutorials, and with a little practice, your nails come out looking totally fab! You can check out their art screens via this link:
