Happy New Year loves! I decided to take a few days off from blogging to relax and refresh myself for the new year and all that comes with it (last year of grad school, wedding planning,etc).  I didn’t completely ditch social media, I still posted pictures to my Instagram! So join me there, if you haven’t already!

 Sooooo, do you notice anything different on my blog? I’ll give you a hint…my pictures! I’m so excited to play with my new DSLR that my fiance J gave me for Christmas (as if I didn’t already love that man to the moon and back) and share higher quality images with you and maybe some video tutorials on some style questions some of you have asked me! I have wanted this camera for two years and I am so thankful to have it and I have so much to learn, so if any of you have any photography tips, please feel free to flood the comments/my inbox with them!

STYLE GUIDE: Try wearing a statement jacket when your outfit isn’t particularly special, it not only keeps you warm when it’s freezing but adds a pop of color and interest to your look!

    Chioma! I wondered where you were. Nice camera and so nice of fiance to give it to you. Did I hear that right? Awesome. And …jacket as a POP of color? I would say more like a BAMMM of color. It is so fun and lovely and you are right, it adds so much!!! I LOVE IT!

    So excited to see all your fancy new pictures from your fancy new camera 🙂 I'm a huge lover of stripes and animal print and yellow is my favorite color so this outfit really was a home run in my book. Hope you have a great weekend!

    This break from graduate school has been everything to me so I understand how you feel.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting!

    From someone who loves all things yellow, I'm a big fan of that jacket! I can't believe you found it at Delia's – I never even think to walk in there.
