For New Years Eve, I typically choose an outfit that makes a statement and says, “Hello, 2016!”, unless it was like NYE 2014 when I sat on the couch and finished the series of LOST. Anyways, last week, I wore this stunning Cynthia Rowley Woodland Dress found only at Rent the Runway. I had my eye on this dress for a long time but never really had the perfect occasion for it. Luckily, this year, we were able to attend a fancy New Years Eve bash at the Merrimon Wynne house in downtown Raleigh. It paired perfectly with my all-time fave navy blue faux fur scarf! I also just realized every outfit I have worn lately is blue. Not surprised.
Dress: Cynthia Rowley Woodland Dress rented by Rent the Runway || Shoes: Nude Pointy Toe Ankle Strap Pumps by Sam Edelman || Scarf: Faux Fur Scarf || Clutch: All in One Bag by Gigi New York || Lip Color: MAC Lipstick in Plumful Lustre (best color ever!)
I normally am so prepared for the new year with a list of goals, resolutions, plans, etc., but this year I feel like I’m falling behind already, honestly. I know I want to be a better person around everyone I love and I know I want to be as positive and hard-working as possible but lately life has been way too busy for me to sit down and actually write a list of my “resolutions”. A few quick goals that come to mind include being more of an “adult” around the house/cleaning up more, cooking dinner more often, making time for myself to improve my health, and making more of an effort to stay in touch with my friends and family. There is no doubt that this year will be busy (incase you missed it, I’m starting to plan a wedding!), but I do think it is important to slow down and make time for the most important parts of life.
