Happy Christmas Eve, Eve! That’s totally not even a real thing; it just sounds cool. Just like that, it’s almost Christmas and next week it will be the end of the year! Can you believe it?!
Today will be my last blog post on Uptown for 2016 (don’t worry I am not going anywhere). I have decided to take the rest of the year off to just enjoy family, the season, and to refocus and to dream big things for 2017.
It’s very easy to get caught up in the mundane and just to go through life one day at a time and to be honest; I feel like I have been doing just that. Just trying to get through my to-do list, and just make it through another day.
I will be still on social media, but as far as the blog, I want to take some time off to reset my goals, my priorities, and where I want Uptown to go in 2017. I would also REALLY appreciate it if you could drop me a note to let me know what you want to see more of. Would you like to see more videos? More family? More faith? Send me an email, comment or even send me a message on IG.
For today’s last holiday dress, as you can see it’s not so Holiday. I realize many of you may not like all the glitter and sparkle, so I went for a chic and polished look with this holiday dress. Today’s holiday dress is also under $100 (you can also find more looks for under $25 or under $50). I have gotten tons of questions about this jacket, and the good news is Nordstrom has all sizes available! I’ve also linked several other holidays dresses under $100 below.
As we close out on 2016, there is just so much to be thankful for! I won’t go into reminiscing all that has to happen in 2016 because so much has happened. But, I am so thankful for what God has done in 2016. This little blogging space has grown so much, and I have been able to connect with so many different people, and that makes me so happy! I know I have said this plenty of times, but I am incredibly grateful for everyone that follows along and reads Uptown. Uptown is only here because of you guys. So a sincere thank you! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to each and every one of you!
