Burgundy + Fur + Life Update

Guys,

When I was preparing for the Holidays I had no idea what was to come. On Christmas Day, my biological Father passed away as well well as my Aunt. These two in addition to the fact that I lost my Stepdad six months ago.........2016 was a tough tough year for me. It reflected in my blogging consistency, and every other facet of my life. Thank you guys so much for bearing with me through 2016.

2016 had some amazing moments, but the tragedies almost overshadowed the memories I made. I'm hoping and looking forward to a better year this year all around. I want to be a better wife, daughter, sister, friend, and blogger. I want to live a life filled with more purpose than ever before because I've lost so much that was dear to me.  There is so much I want to work on in this year but I am going to implement small changes and let it have a snowball effect to bring about big changes....mentally, physically, and spiritually. I sincerely hope that any of you going through similar life changes have a blessed and prosperous 2017. All we can do is take it one day at a time.

Now on to the look....this dress was sent to me from Eshakti and I adore the color. Since I've been a redhead for a few months now I thought it was a perfect compliment. The best thing is the pockets! Who doesn't love dresses with pockets? The fabric is heavy but the only con for me is that it wrinkles easily. I love the wrap style because it flatters the fuller sized body and I love the fact that you can customize the sleeves. I requested a 3/4 length so that I can wear this dress in every season.The biggest plus is that it doesn't drag the ground (I'm only 5'2) but for my taller ladies you guys can also customize the length as well.

My favorite part of this look is the gorgeous faux fur stole. I have never had a black one and I feel like this one is so versatile!! It comes in a cream color too. It was VERY warm because we have had some unusually cold weather here in MS. If you are needing a faux fur stole that keeps you warm and looks luxurious this is the ONE. The photos do it NO justice it's even more gorgeous in person! The clutch is old but classic.
