(Scarf: Forever 21, Dress: Free People, Cardigan: Thrifted Vintage, Boots: Vintage from Granny's Bootery)

Well a very Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you all had a wonderful time and have decided on all of your resolutions if you have them! Sorry I wasn't able to take many photos on New Years, I didn't want to carry around my camera much but I had a great time with my friends and even got a new year's kiss from my wonderful boyfriend :) Three years in a row! 
Anyways, I couldn't wait to show you guys my favorite item of clothing that I received for Christmas this year. Those of you who have been reading awhile now will know of my Free People obsession. I have been drooling over this dress since I laid eyes on it but I never could get myself to spend the money on it. Coincidently, my mother found it and I got it for Christmas!! She didn't even know about my love for it, she just thought I would like it and she was totally right! I love the different colors that are all woven into it, it's so beautiful. Green is also my favorite color ever so really what's not to love about this dress! Pairing the dress with my cozy knitted scarf was pretty much a no brainer as well. This is definitely going to be another one of my favorite outfits to wear. I really was very spoiled this year!

Back to those resolutions/goals for the new year...I've made a few for myself

-Wash face at least once a day (I've been so lazy about that)
-Read more books
-Stay consistent with Etsy store
-Eat more fruit and Veggies
-Save up for new camera
-Concentrate on school
-Walk/hike more
-Take more film photos
-One night per week for total relaxation (No internet)

AGAIN HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! :)
AND ALSO, I would love your guys' help!! I entered the Joie girl contest on Chictopia and I would love your votes to help me win! Joie has so many adorable items that are so effortlessly beautiful and I would love to be the next Joie girl. If you guys could vote and/or favor my look that would be great!!

    That Free People dress looks hot on you and is just perfect dress!!
    I like you resolutions for this year, I have similar ones, such as walk/ hike more and total relaxation once a week :)

    P.S. Yea, it was Kat Von D, whom we were hanging with, she's just a huge inspiration and one of rare, down to earth ppl with great point of thinking/ view on life in general. I was very amazed by her personality.
