Shoes  // Dress // Clutch

This is my last post before Christmas! I cannot believe tomorrow is Christmas eve.  This year has literally flown by! I blinked and a year has gone! As I reflect on this year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for so many things.  One being this ability to create and connect with you all.  It is such a gift to have this blog as an outlet for me to express myself creatively and connect with such beautiful people. I want to take just a moment and say thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to comment and browse.  It literally means the world to me! Next week I will be sharing all of my top posts from 2016 as well as sharing with you what I have learned from this past year and areas that I have grown.

On to this look! This dress is the second piece I recently picked up from Fancy Frills this month! I love the cowl neck detail along with the bottom hem of the dress.  It gives the dress a stand out look! I paired it with these rad black lace shoes from Payless and my favorite clutch at the moment!  This is what I will be wearing on Christmas day.  Cute but comfy!! Thank you as always for stopping by the blog and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!! Much love,
