Reflecting on 2015

2015 was a pretty great year. A few ups and downs, but that’s to be expected every year, right? Last week I was looking at a white board I have in my bedroom at home where I listed my 2015 goals, and realized I completed almost every single one! Coincidentally, they tie into some of my favorite moments from 2015:

A few weeks into the new year I was offered a full time job at the agency where I was interning. I’ve been in my position for almost a full year and I couldn’t be happier working at an amazing company with awesome coworkers.

I fell in love… with Soul Cycle that is. In April I tried Soul Cycle for the first time, which I talked about in this post. It is probably one of the best things to happen to me in 2015, and I can really see my improvement from my first ride. I ride front row more and more!

In May, after gaining some confidence from Soul Cycle, I received my Zumba Instructor certification. I haven’t begun teaching yet, but I’m hoping that’ll happen in 2016 😉

In August, I finally found an apartment in Manhattan to move into after searching for quite a few months. I still can’t believe I’m living a dream I’ve had since I was a little girl.

My sister studied abroad in London this past semester, and my family and I went to visit her! It was my first time out of the country so it was a big deal. I absolutely loved the trip and can’t wait to plan some travel for 2016.

And last but not least, I worked on this blog quite a bit, and even did my first partner post with New York & Company!

Feeling Flannel

IMG_1385

I just love a long weekend home– and when it’s filled with good food, you know you have to dress for comfort. When I got ready for Thanksgiving dinner, I knew I needed something comfortable but still fashionable… because I was obviously taking advantage of blog photos with my mom.

Shockingly enough (not really) I’m wearing head-to-toe Old Navy. This flannel is a little festive with the red, which is so perfect as we are approaching the holiday season. The weather was great on Thanksgiving, so I only needed to wear my vest over it! And when you’re eating stuffing and desserts, you have to wear leggings. These are apart of Old Navy’s Activewear line, but with a little bit of leather-looking patches, make them perfect for everyday wear.

Top this off with some brown boots and a brown tote, and you have the perfect outfit to transition from fall to winter! I can’t wait to start incorporating my vests into my wardrobe. Luckily, I haven’t really needed them yet!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week!
