Black Velvet Lace Top - TART Collections






Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


Happy New Year!  Cheers to a wonderful year ahead and I wish you all a year full of love, health, happiness and whatever your heart may desire!  Peter and I were talking about new year's resolutions last night and when he asked me to share some of mine, I simply said, "to use less paper towels".  Ha!  I was kind of kidding but not really...I REALLY need to use less because we are constantly going through our paper towel rolls.

Using less paper towels is one of MANY resolutions that come to mind but in reality, I don't usually "formally" make a resolution.  At least those that I state out loud and share with the world...I'm not a new year, new me person.  There are a lot of things I aspire to do, to be better at, to create, to see etc, etc...the list could go on for miles.  At the end of the day, it comes down to being the best "ME" that I can possible be and well (using less paper towels ;-)).

From a style perspective, I aspire to take a more minimalist approach this year.  I love the way minimalism looks & feels...kind of a less is more mentality.  We will see how that goes.

So I'm kicking off this year with a simple black on black look.  This beautiful black velvet lace top from Tart Collections is so stunning that it doesn't need anything more than to be paired with a relaxed pair of distressed black denim, a gorgeous pair of red patent leather heels, and a classic black on black watch.  I absolutely adore Tart Collections beautiful pieces...they are simple, versatile, and minimal while still making a statement. 

What are some of your resolutions (if you want to share) and what do you think about minimal looks?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your New Year is off to a great start!
