New Year, New Focus

Happy New Year! It's hard to believe it's already 2016. This May will be 20 years since I graduated from high school, but I really don't feel that old.

I didn't expect to feel so tired today, coming off a four-day weekend, but I just haven't been sleeping all that well lately. I think I'm stressing myself out about the month of January. Good things just don't seem to happen to me in January. People I love tend to pass away around this time of year. We lost George on January 22, 2015, and Izzie and two of my grandparents also passed away in January. I'm trying to stay positive and focus on all the good things in my life - that's my New Year's Resolution, too. That, and drinking less diet soda.

Today's outfit pairs a sweater dress and sandals. I wanted to be warm, but I also wanted to add some sparkle to my outfit, and these sandals are perfect.

Outfit Details:

Dress: BCBGMaxAzria Cydney Cable Knit Navy Sweater Dress

The dress is still available in a Merlot Red from Amazon. The navy color is sold out online.

Shoes: Kate Spade New York Isa Ankle Strap Sandals in Bronze

I absolutely adore these Kate Spade sandals, and since I treated myself to a pedicure yesterday, I opted for sandals today even though the temperature is in the 40s. You can find these sandals at a variety of retailers, including Nordstrom,, Bloomingdale's, Dillard's and Shopbop.
