Happy New Year, my long lost friends!  Yes, I realize we are already halfway through January (WHAAAT?!) and that my last post was wayyy back at the beginning of December, but I can honestly say I have no regrets about it.  Well, that’s not true.  I do wish I had shared more snaps of our holiday home decor because it’s 100% my favorite time of year in our house, but other than that, I’m so glad that I spent the holidays being present and just celebrating my favorite time of year with family and friends.

Things have admittedly changed for me in the last couple of years in the blogosphere, and that’s OK.  I worked hard to build an authentic, genuine following here on the blog, and your support has meant and will continue to mean the world to me.  THANK YOU for following along all these years!  Over the years I’ve probably failed to keep up with some of the blogging trends out there – I NEVER got into Snapchat (still don’t get it), have zero interest in creating Youtube videos, am terrible at keeping up with Instagram stories, and, in general, was VERY late to the Instagram game.  And don’t even try to talk to me about TikTok – I have NO idea what that app is about.  Impeding, maybe, but I’m OK with that too because these just never felt very “me”.

These days, managing our Airbnb property takes up a good bit of my time, and when it comes to lots of events and travel, well, I really just love being at home with my husband and pups.  While I’ve continued to post on Instagram, the blog has been a bit neglected.  But now, the new year is here and it’s time I get back to sharing the things clouding up my headspace – fashion, home decor, and (obviously) the Amazon purchases I’m loving.  My 2020 goal is a handful of posts a month on only my favorite looks, finds, and random thoughts…and the dogs.  Obviously the dogs.

And so today, kicking off my 2020 posts with an outfit full of favorites.  I actually grabbed this dress in the orange color back in late November but decided to swap it once I saw the black color online.  It was on backorder but finally came in, and I LOVE it.  I love the fitted top, flowy skirt, sheer sleeves, and easy floral print.  It’s beyond comfortable, and I’m digging it with booties and a leather jacket now and sneakers and a denim jacket into spring.  Speaking of leather jackets, this favorite with gold hardware is currently on major sale and feels so much more expensive than it is.  Also, if you haven’t checked out these under $20 Amazon hats yet, you’re seriously missing out on a steal.

Happy 2020 and a BIG, FAT THANK YOU to all of you for following along!

xoxo

    Happy New Year, Nikki! I have missed reading your blogs even though I don’t always comment on them. I’m glad you took some time off for yourself to be with friends and family. Looking forward to future blog posts.
