refresh button




H&M lace motorcycle jacket, Jean Paul Gaultier for Target dress, Gap sparkle tights,
 Bongo wedges, Forever 21 large hair bow & feather ring, Target bow earrings, Chico's bracelets


Welcome to 2011 friends! We can officially hit the "refresh button" and start anew. Now, I'm not talking about making a New Year's resolution. I mean sure, resolutions can be from the best of intentions, but sometimes they can be so debilitating. 

Why not choose to change something or to dedicate your "resolution" to helping someone other than yourself? Or how about conquering something that's holding you back? Like your fear to try this, or anxiety to do that, or giving up something you're afraid to let go of.

Open your bright eyes to all the things you've been afraid to try, dare to wear something that's completely different--something bold and funky (like me wearing this girly girl dress), because as long as it makes you feel good...who cares what anyone else thinks? Your confidence will allow your true beauty to radiate through. Ok, I'll stop there because I'm starting to sound a little too sappy :)

How are you guys hitting the refresh button?

 


Side note: I entered a game for NYE outfits, and if you like this look it would be awesome if you voted here. Thanks so much guys :)

I am loving everything you are wearing (especially that jacket! I need one like that) and I agree with everything you said! Maybe my resolution will be to try new foods because as it turns out I always say I hate this and that but I've never even tried it in the first place :P anyhow, happy new year!

I'm impressed. It's hard to do red, but with your hair and skintone, you look AMAZING! Not to mention, incredibly festive. Love the whole look...and your lipstick looks awesome as well...I have incredible trouble with reds. Happy New year!!!

This dress if fab! I can't believe it's from Target! I must have missed this beauty when the collection was out.

Very nice and true words you write. It's a new decade, it's time to take some risks! I'm hoping to get organized this year...and I think my biggest change is going to be my hair. I'm still not 100% sure what I'm going to do with it (or IF I'll have the guts to do it!), but I need a change.

The dress is absolutely gorgeous on you! And I totally agree about the new year's resolution. I don't like making any because I feel like there doesn't need to be a specific time for a person to strive to be better. We should try to be better for those around us year round.

Lovely words. It's a great idea to overcome a fear, or do something you've always wanted to do. I've been wanting to further my career, this year I will actually do something about it.

You're gorgeous! That red dress looks great on you. And I love the lace jacket you paired it with. So pretty! I don't really have a new year's resolution this year. I think this year I just really want to do something adventurous. something real spontaneous.

Hi, i found your blog through some crazy strand of links (from flashes of style, i think) and Im in love with it! You seem like one of the most genuine bloggers out there. Your advice for new years resolutions is great - thinking of someone other than yourself. What a sweetheart. All other fashion blogs Ive looked at, especially some in particular, are so self centered. Anyway, youre great. <3

This is an amazing post! Not only are you stunning in this ensemble, but I love what you wrote. I did succumb and make resolutions, but I made sure to add volunteering to the list. It is good to help others, even if it is a small amount, it counts :)
