outfit: happy new year!

calivintage - moorea seal slip dress

see ya later, 2017! and don’t let the door hit you on the way out! the last few months of the year totally kicked my ass, so i’m definitely ready for the new year. in october, i got my wisdom teeth pulled and then ended up with the dreaded dry socket. i couldn’t eat for like two weeks and it was so miserable! then november hit and i somehow managed to end up with pneumonia for the entire month. and just when i thought i was in the clear, i got a kidney infection and ended up having to take two separate rounds of antibiotics to clear it up. yikes.

so my resolution for the new year is to stop being so sick all the time. can i wish that upon myself? but in all seriousness, i do have some pretty big plans for 2018! i have a ton of projects around the house that i’m working on that i can’t wait to share. and most notably, edith starts school full-time on wednesday, which marks the end of my time as the primary caregiver in our household and the beginnings of some really great things for me and my blog! so it’s onwards and upwards over here!

and i’m ringing in the new year in my most casual dressy look. this little slip dress is made from post-industrial cotton jersey, meaning the brand salvaged the fabric from factory room floors where it would normally end up in a landfill. the result is an eco-friendly dress that is so perfectly versatile and a piece that should own a spot in every wardrobe. add some heels to dress it up a bit and you’re good to go if your planning a simple get-together like i am. we’re doing champagne and hors d’oeuvres and an early countdown with the kids and then probably staying up late to watch netflix.

  1. Man I got my wisdom teeth taken out when I (we) was (were) 26 and I remember how awful that felt. That is terrible that you got so sick in November too! The kidney infection sounds horrific!!!!!!! I hope you really do have a healthy year now!
