A Look Back at 2013

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11

 In so many ways, 2013 was the best year of my life. I built a life in a city where I knew no one, gained a ton of professional experience in public relations, made new friends, did my taxes for the first time, dyed my hair dark, visited NYC, and learned a lot about relationships and life. I also went through major heartbreak... but because of it, I learned just how strong of a person I am. In 2013, I also dedicated more of myself to my blog. I learned to persevere, to work hard and not to be scared to dream big

From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you who visit this little blog and continue to do so week after week. I love sharing my life with you and I love sharing my outfits with you. In the hardest of times, it is you all that have encouraged me and given me strength! I appreciate each and every one of you, and it's because of you that I know 2014 is going to be the best year yet.

  7. Happy to hear that you had a fantastic year. Doing taxes is not a fun experience, but it means you've matured. I love all your outfits but my favorite one is your black-and-white chev dress. It's simple elegance at its best.

    Happy 2014!

  32. You have had a great year, and have grown so much. Heartbreak is never easy, but it will make you stronger, and be even better with you meet that right person because things will be so easy. I used to hate being told that when I was 25, but at your age, the world is your Oyster. It's going to be a great ride.
