A Hopeless Romantic

zara floral tapestry top with ruffles outfit inspiration saretta thais

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you had a magical holiday season especially after the crappy year we had.  I don’t know, it might’ve been a great year for some people, but I think for most of us it definitely wasn’t.  I can’t say it was all that bad; I did travel to Croatia which was probably the highlight of my year, and I had a lot of time to (more…)
