Yeah, yeah. Where have I been? I know. Now that we got that out of the way. Let’s talk about what I wore today! lol.
I have to admit, I felt super cute today and so I figured today made for the perfect day to end my blogging drought. Because I just had to show you guys all the cuteness. lol.
I recently purchased this faux leather skirt from Forever 21. I had to take it and get the waist taken in, so I was super excited to get it back from the tailor and honestly couldn’t wait to wear it. I decided to pair it with my monogrammed varsity letterman from H&M and then added my favorite knit hat from GAP.

Now, LET’S TALK ABOUT THESE SHOES!
I have been in love with Christian Siriano and his work from the moment I saw him on Project Runway. His attention to detail and his knack for creativity is just everything to me. So when he started doing a line of shoes with Payless a few years ago, I made sure to keep my eye on the collection so I could jump on the opportunity to own a pair. I recently came across the pair of suede faux snakeskin booties during a late night online shopping session and fell in love! I waited anxiously by the mailbox everyday (No, really. I did.) until they finally arrived. And they did not disappoint!

I thought these awesome shoes would be the perfect touch of detail for my look today and I have to say, I pretty happy with the way it all came together.
What do you think of what I wore today?

No matter where you live, New Year’s Eve is bound to be a joyous occasion and it’s your job to celebrate it in style!
