Fresh New Year

Untitled #575

Untitled #575 by poshandy featuring 

Tory burch shoes

Prada brown purse

Gucci gold pendant

Roman Luxe drusy earrings

Love tortoise glasses

NARS Cosmetics lips makeup

Tory burch fragrance

This set represents what I would like to achieve in the New Year, let me elaborate.
Bathing Suit- This represents how I want to be comfortable in my own body and be able to wear a cute bathing suit without feeling self conscious.
Tory Burch Shoes- These shoes show an effort to bring my personal style into my everyday wardrobe. While I may be able to put together sets online, I would like to be able to do the same thing in my everyday outfits. (or at least attempt to be coordinated)
Prada Purse and Roman Luxe Earrings- These two items both represent how I would like to be more confident in the New Year. The glitter on the bag and the pure beauty of the earrings reflect courage, I hope to let my personality shine this year.
Gucci Cross- This cross necklace represents how I would like to grow my relationship with God in the New Year.
Tortoise Glasses-These tortoise glasses represent how I would like to read more in the New Year. (I already have a long list of new books to enjoy)
Nars Lip Makeup and Tory Burch Perfume- These beauty products represent my goal of wanting to bring a little bit of a beauty routine in my life, often times I forget to put on perfume or lipgloss. In the New Year I would like to create a balanced and simplistic routine.

Overall in the next year I would like to focus on the small details of my life, but at the same time I would like to help others less fortunate than I. Maybe by volunteering or even by smiling at a person having a bad day, I challenge all of you reading to do two things, one for yourself, and one for someone else.
I hope you guys had a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Have a great New Year

Winter Essentials

IWinter Essentials

Winter Essentials by poshandy featuring 
Dress- Monki
Boots- Vintage Chanel
Tights- J.Crew
Handbag- Kate Spade
Earrings-Brooks Brothers
Perfume- Chanel

This is one of my recent posts to Polyvore (BTW it is an awesome site if you love fashion). During each season I always have go to items to wear, and this season these are my essentials. Even if you do not have these exact my items the idea stays. To begin we have the dress, in any season I try to find one dress or skirt that is well made and well fit. This season my dress is a deep eggplant purple and goes with almost every cardigan I own. Since the dress shown is a cream color it looks great with most winter colors. Next we have the boots, any pair of sturdy riding boots are a must have during winter and fall. Riding boots are one of the few shows that can go with almost anything, so they are a definite must. Then, we have the tights. I rarely wear pants; to keep my legs from freezing tights are the way to go. I only need a handful of good tights and I am set for the entire winter /fall. To spice things up you could always add a little bit of color. Next on the list is the handbag, I am in love with everything gold and glittery this winter. I find that instead of adding pounds of jewelry to an outfit, some sparkle works just as well. I like a bag this size is that it's small enough to hold everything but it won't hold you down. After that you have the earrings. These are super cute and dainty. Next are the sunglasses because even in winter the sun can be a pest. These sunglasses are so cute with the tinted lenses, and look like they belong to Audrey Hepburn. The last two items go together. A classic perfume and lip color change by the person. Right now the deep red color of the lipstick screams winter, and the perfume is known for its timeless scent.
