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….

& NOW, the very last outfit post of 2016!  EEP!

Admittedly, I have no idea what I’m going to wear for New Years and haven’t even solidified plans. I am super stoked for New Years Day but am not too pressed to do anything super grand for New Years Eve.  I’m not sure if this comes with age or just less than stellar past experiences?  All I know is this NYE I would love to look cute yet casual.   And so, I put this outfit together as a possible option:
