I know I know, it’s been a good 2 cents and a half since I’ve written. I’m not going to bore you nor think it’s worth anyone’s time for me to go in the reasoning and the blah blah blah. What you do need to know is I’m here!
It’s a new year… obviously. Everyone is gung-ho with resolutions over there like “No carbs for me bitch” and over here saying in their Regina Georgie voice "I really wanna lose 3 pounds.” You go Glen Coco but word of thought: isn’t it more about a fresh start with resolutions than feeling like a jail cell where you limit yourself from living. You can start resolutions anytime you want. I know the feeling though. As I have an internal battle myself with a fresh start vs a jail cell, it does make it just a tiny bit easier to have a fresh start in parallel to the new year. So this is my fresh start with you guys.
I’m excited and looking forward to this year giving you guys the content you ache for. Ok, aching for content might be a little over the top but you know where I’m getting at. I excited to share with you content that will inspire and speak to you. So no more blabbing on.
While I did not give up alcohol as my resolution, I have a bottle of wine waiting on me and it’s not going to drink itself.
I may or may not always hop on the latest trends. Off the shoulder, count me in. Floral dresses, yes and yes. There's one trend though, I cannot support and will not support. Gingham - you gots to go.
Am I committing fashion suicide by not being about this trend? Who cares to be honest.
Gingham, I need you go away far far away.
I need you to stop being produced as anything but a table cloth.
I need you to stop being worn as acceptable pieces of clothing.
You belong at a picnic where food is eaten off you.
Not as a bathing suit.
Not as an off the shoulder top.
And definitely, not as a dress.
Gingham, I cannot hop on your trend. Forgive me but you don't belong in my closet.
Happy birthday to me! I honestly couldn't have worn a better dress to ring in my 28th year than this wrap dress from Missguided. This dress screams GIRLBOSS with a serving of sexy.

I saw this dress while skimming the Memorial Day sales and instantly knew I had to have it. It also didn't help that everything was 50% for the holiday. One cart checkout later and an email confirmation to say my order was complete. This pretty little nude thing was on its way to my closet!
This best thing about this dress, I have to say, is it's versatility. It's the perfect sexy, date night look without saying "I'm here for the $ bills." Need to be a GIRLBOSS at work? No problem! Add some double sided tape on top to limit the amount of cleavage you show and pair it with some loafers. Lastly, you can wear this as a duster. I did it this past week at work and I fell even more in love with my purchase.
If this dress is screaming your name as much as it did mine, I would check it out now! The black and raspberry colors are almost gone. The nude (which is a personal favorite, obviously) still has sizes available.
