Today's Everyday Fashion: Last of 2012

Inspiration: Zara

It's the last of 2012 and while I'm not posting a collage of favorite outfits (see Outfits tab for some favorites), I can't help but wax nostalgic. In some ways 2012 was great - I reached goals I never thought possible (50,000 Facebook fans), and had some amazing experiences (Sierra Leone). But this was also my most difficult year, with family illness and serious personal trials; it was a very sad time. It was with pleasure that I escaped to the world of fashion for just a moment with you everyday, and I want to thank you for joining me this year. 2012 ends on a happy note, and I'm optimistic about what 2013 will bring. Here's to a very merry - and fashionable - 2013. Cheers!

About my outfit: I skipped my usual winter uniform of skinny jeans for a comfy striped skirt and boots yesterday. Also, pretty sure I'm wearing this dress tonight for NYE, but I will let you know!
