Favorite Looks of 2017 & Goals for 2018

The year of 2017 is quickly becoming a blur. From moving back to my hometown, to starting a new job, and to officially starting this blog, time went by without me even realizing it. Initially, I felt this year was pretty uneventful and at times extremely difficult. As I began to reflect on the past year, I realized that a lot happened. Although it wasn’t all good, I made mistakes and learned from them. I also noticed that I reacted better to things that would have in the past sent me spiraling out of control. It’s true, 2017 was not the best year for me. However, I experienced a lot of personal growth and that can always be viewed as a good thing. I plan on starting the new year off applying the lessons I have learned from last year and by having a positive mindset. I am excited to see what 2018 has in store for me! I started my blog in April of last year, and I had so much fun styling looks for outfit posts. I couldn’t think of a better way of reflecting on my 2017 blogging journey than to share some of my favorite outfit posts of the year!
