2016 Round Up: A NYE Outfit +The Year In Review + OOTD Recap

It’s here!  There are only two more sleeps ’till 2017.  How relieved are you? I know I am. This year has been all kinds of somethin’.  I am very ready for it to be over and to start the new year!

As I reflect on the details,  I can’t believe how many life changing things have happened in a short 12 months.

  • Moving from D.C. to Denver
  • Adopting a kitten
  • Buying a new car
  • New job + a promotion
  • The election

….and of course starting this blog.

I can’t believe it hasn’t even been a year since I began this journey!  For those of you who have been following me from the start, do you remember when THGG was karissaexplnsitall.com?  I have loved the transition and growth of this blog and have learned SO so much!

I have to say,  I am super proud of myself for keeping up with this project which is now a very cherished part of my life.  Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged this dream.  I am so excited for all of the things I have in store for you this up coming year!

That being said, let’s take a look back at the outfit posts from this past year….

Day vs. Night : Lace Green Dress


Today I want to share with you one of my FAVORITE dresses and how I style it from day to night.  Truth be told, I def wear both of these ways during either day or night depending on the occasion.  I have this love affair with lace that started about a year and a half ago and this dress has been with me from the beginning…

This dress was a hand me down from my bff but I did find a couple that were similar.  THIS dress from Lulus and THIS one by Free People are the closest!

So during the day a pair of taller boots and a blanket scarf take this fancy little number to a more causal route. Any time I wear this dress people always ask where I’m going….but throw on a scarf and casual boots and everyone just thinks you look adorable *thumbs up emoji*
