Taking the train on the shoreline is always great because the views are amazing. If trains weren't so expensive, I would just ride them all over all day and people watch and take in all the scenery. It's a quick way to just get away a little and get to someplace new.
This outfit is chock full of new things that I got for Christmas! The dress, the necklace, and the shoes are all new. I really love the color of the dress, and it's very comfy! I also really love the necklace since giraffes are one of my favorite animals. I love how it's just the head and is a little bit bolder than I usually wear for jewelry. I usually go for more dainty styles. I still really wish I could ride a giraffe like a horse. It'd be so awesome!
This coat is new too, and I also got it for Christmas. It's from ModCloth, and I really love it! I wanted a new peacoat that was similar to a beige one that I have, but I wanted it to have a non-neutral colored one. I love peacoats that are shaped like a dress with the skirt that flairs out. I found this coat among my searches, and decided that it fit my criteria just fine. :)
I feel that I had a very strong year with my blog in 2013. I had my first giveaway, posted a lot more frequently, and feel that overall, I became more creative in how I mix colors and whatnot. I am very proud of a lot of my posts from last year and I'm looking forward to all the new ideas 2014 will bring me. I'd really like to do more thematic shoots like I did with the balloon shoot or the undead shoot. I'd love to use more props and get more creative in storytelling through photos.
