happy new year

2013 was such a fantastic year. It definitely had it's challenges but those difficult moments were followed by some of the best of my life. I'm looking forward to this upcoming year and while I'm still a little unsure about a few things, I'm starting to realize that's okay. I can't always know exactly what's going to happen and while I can try to plan for things, I have to know that sometimes I'll just be more of a guide. It's not easy for me to be out of my comfort zone but I know that's where a lot of growth can happen so I know that's where a lot of 2014 will be spent.  

Thank you to all of you for being so amazing. You're kind, loyal and forgiving. To be able to put myself online the way I do and rarely, if ever, feel judged is truly special. You allow me to be myself and I can't thank you enough for that.

Here is a little recap of my (style) world this past year.





Happy New Year to all of you, my amazing readers and friends. 


  1. You are absolutely right. If we never leave our comfort zone, we can never grow. Good luck and have fun in the new year -- I have a feeling it'll be pretty special.

  2. Melissa I absolutely love your style. You've inspired me - I definitely need more maxi dresses, red trench coats, and striped a-line skater skirts. Here's to more success with your blog in 2014! xo

  3. Going through these pics is so inspiring! Your style is spot on and the way you re-use and mix items amazes me. If you ever want to sell pieces from your closet I will be your best customer! Keep doing what you do cuz we love it. :)
