Towards the end of the year, I love the chance to reflect on how great the past year was.  This year has been no exception.  I use this blog to share a peek into my life & that's exactly what you see - a peek - all the great stuff - & 2015 has been filled with a TON of it - super fun collaborations that I am so proud to have been a part of, vacations to new places & (hopefully you agree) some great outfits ;).

  It was also filled with a few major challenges that I didn't talk about this year, but changed my year immensely.  My 9 to 5 job went through major ups and downs as did my relationship with J but as the year ends, I realize how much of a blessing those changes turned out to be as well.  I am a better person & learned a lot about myself because of it.

To be honest, I've never really been one of those crazy NYE celebrators.  I prefer a nice dinner with my loved ones over a crazy open bar to ring in the New Year. Today's look is a perfect one for a dressed up dinner with your S.O, friends or family members.

I was so excited to open up this Sachin & Babi dress from Lyon & Post.  Admittedly, it was a little bit too big in the bodice, but it was too gorgeous to not photograph.  I LOVE the navy blue color, the girly princess skirt and the print gave me the illusion of Times Square lights - what's better for NYE?

We were SO lucky this December with uncharacteristically warm weather.  I was able to wear bare legs with skirts for a holiday party as well as knee high socks with a bunch of my dresses! It has been such a treat!

Without tights, I was really able to highlight the mesh cut out details on the skirt of this dress as well as my blue suede shoes (on repeat lately).
