A Vintage New Year

As 2013 comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you readers who let me share my life and my outfits with you each day. I love having this blog and you guys make it all worth it! I have grown so much over the last 3 1/2 years and honestly have no idea how I would have kept sane at times without the blog to come home to. I am thankful for the opportunities this blog has brought me, as well as the doors it has opened for my life. I don't want to be mushy, but I am so glad I started this blog because of a random idea. It has turned into something so much greater than I imagined!

So about your New Year's outfit… I put this one together for a mini shoot with Tate a few weeks ago and did not think of how gorgeous it would be for a vintage themed New Year's soirèe! A fur coat will keep you warm outside, but a sassy 1940s abstract floral print dress can hold its own once you get inside! Pull your hair into a side twist to keep it out of your face, but top off your look with a face-framing hat that is guaranteed to turn a few heads. I have always been intrigued by the way ladies in the 1930s and 1940s wore their hats cocked to the side and thought it was a bit strange. Now that I have one of my own, though, I feel so mysterious and full of mischief in it… like I can give the side-eye extra hard and it is totally appropriate because… hat

And you cannot possibly forget gloves! They are essential to any vintage look! Gloves are a great way to keep your warm, but also look ladylike resting on your clutch throughout the night as you sip champagne and wait for the ball to drop.

I hope you all have a great start to the new year!

In the effort of full disclosure, I am spending my New Year's Eve in full bonfire mode and will likely be in sweatpants and a very ugly (but warm) coat. Livin' the life.
