New Year, New Clothes!

January 2, 2017

Happy New Year everyone, and welcome back! Did you miss me?! If you’re wondering where I’ve been, took some time off from the blog for the holidays. While I missed posting so much, I was spread really thin over the past few weeks and needed to focus on my family and friends. However, I can’t complain; I got to visit NYC, stand next to my best friend on her wedding day, attend Christmas parties and dinners. It was a crazy December but I’m so grateful I got to do so much! In between all of these events I got a killer cold (from burning the candle at both ends, as my parents say), and still was prioritizing my marketing job, so any down time I had (not a lot) was used for resting. But it feels really good to be back 🙂

You may remember earlier I posted what was on my holiday wish list this year. Apparently, I was good this year because I made out like a bandit. Here I’m wearing two of my new favorite gifts: this J.Crew high-collar coat in camel, and this beautiful Tory Burch backpack.

This coat is so warm and cozy – the high collar blocks my neck so you really don’t need to wear a scarf with it. And the backpack? This thing has seriously saved my life this past week. It not only fits my laptop, but also my cross-body purse, or my lunch for the day. Usually when I jump on the T for work, I’m juggling my Charlie Card, my coffee, my phone, etc. But this backpack has freed up my hands… so now I feel like Will Ferrell in Talledega Nights. Jokes aside it’s made my life easier and its super cute!

I am fired up about 2017 and will be posting more on that soon, I promise!

    I did miss you! I love love your coat! But Florida is too warm to wear it! Perhaps the bag!

      Thanks Donna! I am very jealous of your Florida weather on this cold and rainy New England day!
