I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve and New Year's Day! I ushered it in while sleeping because when your 1 month old is asleep you'd better be taking advantage of that, too! Maybe next year we will do something more fun! I wore this incredibly soft burnt orange peplum top from SheIn  for a lazy day at home on New Year's Day. Although it's labeled and priced as a tee, it's actually made of much thicker material and is really soft and warm! With temps well below freezing I was appreciative of that! I've been wanting to try out more of this burnt orange color and wasn't sure it would work on me, but I kind of love it!

2015 and 2016 were years that were very difficult for us as a family and I was so happy to see them go. But 2017 was so much more than I could have ever hoped for. We found the courage to try IVF again, had success, and welcomed Aveline in early November. We went on an incredible family trip to Ireland. My daughter Claire learned to read and turned 5. My husband has continued to enjoy his job at work. I am not sure what 2018 will bring for us, but I know if it is a tough year, it will pass and if it is a good year we will have wonderful memories to look back on.

Last week's most popular post was from Di-alog and her gorgeous ruffled top and really fun ruffled bag!

  1. Happy New Year! I'm glad you were able to catch up a little on your sleep, which can be difficult with a baby! Thanks for hosting and cheers to 2018!

  3. Laura, what blessings filled your 2017! And this outfit is perfectly suited to a mom on the go in below freezing temperatures. My kids are on a 2 hour delay today (the first day back to school) due to frigid temperatures. It has been dipping into the negative 20's around here and man is it cold! Anyway, I will do my best to stay stylish while freezing my pants off! Happy New Year, my friend.

    Thank you for the link up!

    Happy new year! Hope that 2018 is off to an amazing start for you.

  11. So glad 2017 turned out to be a great year for you! And I love this color on you! I have eyed this top myself several times but thought maybe I should cool it on the peplum top purchases since I have quite a few now. LOL. But it's a great top and you styled it well!

  23. I have one peplum top in my closet and it is an oatmeal color that I just love. I really wear it so often, that I'd love to get some other peplum tops in my closet. I just love the pumpkiny color of this one! And, I don't blame you for getting sleep when you can, even if it is on NYE! :)

  31. There will be plenty of New Years Eve's where you won't have an infant😉. You're a smart girl to sleep when she sleeps. You can absolutely wear that pumpkin color. It looks beautiful on you. I'm sure you were probably cold taking these pics, but it doesn't show. Happy New Year!!! XO
