Goodbye 2017! A look back at the year.

Well 2017 is over, on one hand I am glad for that. It has been a year of ups and downs. I am sure we all have had that. And here is hoping 2018 is even better! Politics aside. So, since I keep seeing people doing recaps of 2017, I thought I would do one too. Even though I really didn’t feel like it this year. I wanted to go to bed at 9pm, oh the joys of making a tiny human.

So lets Take a look back!

Jan 2017-

DVF top and Gucci skirtI found some great pieces for my closet. Like this Diane Von Furstenberg silk top and this Gucci Silk skirt.

DVF top and Gucci skirtI started to get more out of the comfort zone and stepped up my photos skillz. (HA) And by stepping up I mean getting my butt away from the house and finding a great brick wall. As well as going out and about to different places. My photography got better and I was able to get some great pictures of the little and I.

I have no idea what is happening here.

February 2017

OOTD MonochromeI love this outfit! This start print skirt is one of my fave things and I can not wait to wear it again! As well as the damned shirt!

Coca Cola sweaterI shared my extreme love of hoodies this year in 2017. It is something I always love. Why not?! They are comfy and if the sweater is over sized you can do that thing with the arms!

And here is my favorite outfit of February. Nothing beats a monochrome outfit, especially this one! I adore these ALDO boots and this Lord of the Rings tee.

March 2017

Monochrome outfitI found a great satin moto jacket in March from H&M.E.SSUE by love and love pants and Skreened tee justfab bag aldo shoesI also got this great Hobbit tee and wore them with these satin pants, another thing I cant wait to wear again!

Went to Disney Springs for the first time ever! Wore the cutest off shoulder dress that I wore on one shoulder. We had a lot of fun and ate at the Rainforest Café. WAs a great time. And while there I made mental notes of where to shoot if I went back.

I got my hands on this Nirvana band tee, and now my son and I have Nirvana tees, I was also just finding out about baby #2  around this time as well. I don’t get the normal pregnancy symptoms and so my period was missed (not uncommon for me on the normal) and then we tested. Tada!

styling the summer maxi skirtI started to go out and about even more for blog photos and had this outfit! And I love this skirt! There are shorts built in! Sadly there are no more of it. And this lace up body suit is just stellar! Just wish my self confidence in it was better. I always felt eyes.

I finally wore tennis shoes, these COACH shoes were a great buy and look great with this tulle skirt and the basic button down EXPRESS blouse.

Got invited to a lot of events this year in comparison to last. Although there were some things that happened that were beyond my own control that I couldn’t attend some after saying I would. I am still pissed about it. Very pissed off, because I haven’t gotten invited to much since. I am not sure if that is by coincidence or not.
