Better Than Before

Dress: Ten Sixty Sherman // Denim Jacket: Topshop // Boots: Stuart Weitzman // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Removable Bag Strap: Rebecca Minkoff // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Earrings: Gorjana

    

2017 has officially arrived.

And don’t for one second think I am gonna give you all that “new year, new me” crap….because I’m not. Because, quite frankly, I’m not a “new me.” One day didn’t make me a new person. The stroke of midnight didn’t suddenly make a lightbulb go off & allow me to fall asleep & wake up a new, better version of myself.

But what it did do is allow me to look at my high’s & low’s of 2016. And yes, there were some LOW LOW’S….but there were also many HIGH HIGH’S! The close of 2016 gave me perspective…perspective of what I did, who I became, & where my heart journeyed to.

2017 won’t deliver a “new me.”

2017 will deliver a better me. A stronger me. A patient me. A kind me. A confident me. A loving me.

Cheers to being better, better than you were at 11:59pm, December 31, 2016.

    Love this dress and just ordered to wear with wine OTK boots…wondering what color tights would go well? I live in the Midwest so bare legs currently aren’t an option:)…

    Thank you!

    BETTER THAN BEFORE post possess lovely accessories like Denim Jacket, boots of Stuart Weitzman and Rebecca Bag. Nevertheless, the color of Berry is fit and ingenious. I agree with your thinking 2017 is best for us with new Boots of OTK.
