can’t believe it’s a week into the new year & this is my first post! you know how it is after a vacation though, so hard to get back into a routine :( over the holidays, i spent one week in california, one night in philadelphia & then 2 days in new york! i won’t bore you with the specific details, but my husband surprised me with doing times square for new year’s eve! i’ve never done that before! he even coordinated to have 2 friends & my brother celebrate the new year with us! that was the biggest & best surprise EVER!
needless to say, since it was a surprise, i didn’t have any new year’s eve type clothing to wear :( luckily, before leaving PA, quick stops at TJ maxx & kohl’s saved me! i actually really love this dress i found. mostly gold, but had dark silver threads running through, so in different lights, looked either white gold or gunmetal silver. it was a great flowy length too, almost grecian in design. all that extra fabric kept me warm & i definitely felt more comfortable than i would have in a shorter, clingier dress. i was extra pleased as well with how my friend from portland, oregon & i were surreptitiously & unknowningly coordinated in our outfits…me in white/gold & her in black/sparkly silver! it was the PERFECT start to 2013 ^_^
