Passion, desire, love, power, determination & strength.
Not only are these some of the terms that come to mind with the association of the color red, but these words fall completely in line with last year of my life!
If you know me personally, you know I say this often–but I’m so completely surprised by the person I have become & the fact that I am as ambitious & determined as I am. I’m stronger than I’ve ever felt before all because I realized my capabilities which, in turn, gave me the courage to pursue my passions wholeheartedly!
Yesterday was my birthday and when planning what I would wear, I knew exactly the color dress I wanted to rock- bold, daring red to signify and reflect on all that has been my journey in the past year! I can’t remember the last time I wore a red dress, but when I saw this Maisy Fit & Flare Dress by London Times, I knew this feminine a-line dress fit the bill & I knew exactly how I wanted to style it–a perfectly matched cherry red lip (I layered Mary Kay’s Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick in Powerful Pink over Poppy Please) and of course this sweet dress would not be complete without my most favorite moto jacket! There’s something about this pairing that makes me feel like a BOSS 😉
This year my birthday leaned more on the casual side with an early dinner with the fiancé at my favorite restaurant–ABC Kitchen and last minute frosés at Bar Primi! This dress made me feel like I stood out from the crowd without being too over the top and fit perfectly into our relaxed evening! It’s lightweight, extremely comfortable and left me with just enough room for the insanely yummy ABC Kitchen Sundae we couldn’t resist!
It’s been a wonderful year of significant growth & I owe a large percentage of my courage to each and everyone one of you who has believed in me & continues to support me along the way! Thank you so incredibly much for being a massive part of the TST journey! I adore you!
