Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! Jayden and I spent it with my family, and had a big traditional Filipino celebration for New Years Eve. My husband had to work, but we were able to spend New Years day with him when he came home from work so we were thankful for that. This week is a busy week for me, as I have big plans for this blog. I just hired three interns for this year to work along side me to taking this blog to next level, and this is the first official week of business. So today I am going to leave you with this fun outfit, mixing old with new for my first official 2017 fashion post.

When mixing old with new, I love this faux leather jacket. I have worn it several times this year. A leather jacket is a statement piece that will never go out of style. I paired it up with the cutest skirt from Chicwish. This skirt is a simple yet chic with the lace-up detail. I love Chicwish fashion, because their style is so unique and so adorable! This Daniel Wellington watch is one of my favorites. You can get you one too for 15% off with my code “DAWN15”.

I am sure they are sold out so I linked some similar ones below. This off the shoulder top is one of my favorites and has been a staple this past year. It is also sold out so I linked similar style below.  


So here’s to mixing old with new this year, because we all know that no matter how old, some styles never go out of style. What are some of your big plans for this year? I would love to know! Hope you have a great week!

<3 Dawn

    Being a blogger it’s so easy to forget to keep the old things (even if they aren’t available to link!) What a great reminder!
