A Not So Rusty Start of 2016!











Happy new year!!!!! Sad the holidays are over because I personally love that cheery time of the year but also happy for a new year.  Like I wrote on Instagram, 2015 was a bit challenging for me in some ways but I am thankful for life and a chance to make 2016 better.  I spent the new year in a small village, mountain ski town with the hubby and family.  It was quiet and lovely and my highlight was winning $800 after putting in $20 in the slots machine at the local casino.  I'm not a gambler but when we are there which is not often, we usually try our luck for fun for a short period of time and this time I won on new years day so I thought, this is a good start to the new year.  I have no new year resolutions but a goal to either start something productive in some way, continue strong with something already started, or finish/accomplish any new goals set all while remembering to choose to be happy.  Do you have any new year resolutions?
Anyway about this look,  after seeing this similar outfit in the express ads, I loved the rust colored skirt and although I wanted to style it differently, I decided to do a similar styling from express except with different colors.  I love hats although I never wear them so with the new year, I decided to give in and wear one with this look and I think I'll do more styling with hats in the future.  I think a quick way to change up a look is by adding a hat.  Besides the hat being black, I kept the over the knee boots, bag and blouse all in black to keep the focus on the skirt with it's distinct color.  Thanks for reading!
