To An Amazing and Fabulous 2017 - Black Tank + Sheer Striped Skirt


I'mmmmm Backkkkkkk!!!! Okay, I know I have not posted in quite a while. Like many others, I had a lot of things happen in 2016 that made it difficult for me to be consistent, mainly my dad's health has been very up and down and I lost my photographer ie my boyfriend and I broke up. LOL I also had some really fun and amazing things happen in 2016 and hopefully I will get a chance to share some of that too. Now it is 2017 and I am recommitting myself to the blog and making some amazing things happen this year!!


Now on to the outfit! This outfit is particularly special to me because I got the skirt from someone who is a second mom to me. I've known her most of my life. Her and my mom where really good friends and when my mom passed she told me that she would be my other mom and be there for me. You may remember a little while ago when I told you that someone very close to me had passed away this past year at the age of only 23 from cystic fibrosis. Well, that was her son and this was the skirt she wore to his services. I had told her how pretty it looked on her and she gave it to me. So every time I wear it I think about both of them and it makes me smile.
