Happy New Year everyone! I've been keeping busy in 2012 already. I don't usually make a New Year's resolution but this year I'm making an effort to wear more color and blog more frequently! The two pieces below are new arrivals at Ruche, one of my favorite online boutiques. The colorblock dress has a gold zipper up the back that really adds a nice touch. I know the top is not in tune with my resolution to wear more color but I love the peplum accent. It's not something you see every day and gives it a nice, classic feel. It's been mighty cold the past few days, getting into the teens. My Florida blood isn't used to all this! I don't remember it being this cold in New York last year, although there was a ton of snow. Maybe the snow makes me forget about it being so cold. I don't know how that is possible but at least it's kinda pretty!
Last year my dad got me this hat and it's definitely coming in handy for the frigid days we've been having lately. I love the 70's feel to this picture.
Here is my first step in the direction of wearing more color. I got this adorable Liz Claiborne scarf for Christmas and it's like 5 different colors so it matches with almost anything! I also bought this blue-ish purple-ish cardigan at Target. I need to try to step away from buying so many basics and branch out to buy some WOW pieces! I think I made another resolution just now. Fashion resolutions are the only ones I'll stick to.
