Can you believe that we only have a few days left of 2016?! This year has had some really tough moments for me but the one thing that trumps all of that is 2016 is the year that gave me Beckam! And for that, it will forever be one of the best years of my life!
With that said, I can’t even tell you how excited I am to ring in 2017! It may be cliche but I love reflecting on the past year and using that to focus in on new goals to achieve in the next twelve months. I’ve been thinking over many goals I have – both personally & professionally – and I’m working on a plan to ensure I don’t lose sight of those hopes and aspirations after a few months. This year will also be a year of big changes for our family! We will be moving from Oklahoma City to Quantico, Virginia. There is also a chance that at the end of the year we will again be moving somewhere new! hashtag: militaryfamilyprobs! Despite all the changes, I am definitely ready to see what this year has in store for our family, my job & even this little blog of mine.
Before we hop right into the New Year, I definitely have to plan my first outfit of 2017! I love the chance to get dressed up and NYE is the perfect opportunity. I’ve been browsing a few different options online but I can’t justify spending $100+ on a NYE dress. So my go-to when I am in a fashion-crunch is always to check out Lush Fashion Lounge. You’ve seen me rave about them many times here on Styled Blonde [here, here, and here as just a few examples!] and how much I love shopping there.
Luckily, Lush Fashion Lounge didn’t fail me and killed it with their Midnight Memories collection! SO many great options for NYE and the prices are right on point. The instant I saw this sparkly gold number, I knew it would be perfect for both New Years Eve & our Vegas trip we took earlier this month. I was able to shoot these pictures at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas after getting my hair done at the Sahra Salon. Read more about that here. This dress is absolutely stunning and I love the fact that it has long sleeve so I don’t freeze on a cold night!
Be sure to check out the rest of the Midnight Memories collection from Lush Fashion Lounge! They have lots of great sparkly options for you! In addition to this dress, I also have/recommend this black blazer, this velvet dress, and this tulle skirt from this line. I promise you’ll find something to love!
