Happy 2016!!! I am a girl who loves coats! It could be because I grew up in Michigan and every fall, my mom and I would go shopping for new winter coats. I would always get one for school and one for church. Even though I now live in Dallas and our winters are short, I pretty much buy a new coat each year. It’s such a habit and I don’t mind one bit. My mom was tall at 5’9 and I would always envy her ability to wear ankle length coats because they just looked so fabulous on her. She was a fashionista too (Rest in Heaven Mom)! I’m only 5’3-but all legs, however, there aren’t many long coats out there that I can rock without drowning in them. Well, when I spotted this one I knew I had to have it. It’s more of a midi length coat which is perfect for my height. The fact that it has a funnel neck and a gorgeous camel color was icing on the cake! I personally would wear it with heels to give me some height. But, I’ve seen plenty of Pinterest pictures of women wearing coats like this with sneakers and I’m feeling it!
I can’t believe that we are already into a new year. When I started this blog, almost a year ago, I didn’t know if I could fully commit to it. Being a new mom is amazing and challenging at the same time. Also, trying to meet the demands of every day life can be a juggling act. But, the fact is this blog has motivated me like never before! I have so many things that I want to do to take my blog to the next level! I feel that my blog has taken me places, allowed me to meet people and do things that I would have never thought could happen. It’s only the beginning but I am still amazed at how far along I’ve come being a blogger. It’s crazy how certain opportunities have fallen in my lap at the most perfect time. It’s so unreal! It’s as if God is saying, “I told you this was for you!”
When I initially started my blog, I thought, “ok, so you’ll do the blog and that can be an extension of yourself. Something you can do on the side that you’ll enjoy.” Well, scratch that! It means so much more to me than that. My mindset is now “lets go from a blog to a brand!!” I’m ready to get started my friends. Tell me, what are you going to do in 2016 to go to the next level??
Let’s grow together and make it happen!!
