My 2017 in Review: Blog Edition

Welcome back, everyone and Happy New Year! I took a bit of a break from my blog to enjoy the holidays with my family and friends, but now that it’s 2018, I couldn’t be more excited to be back.

I thought I’d ring in the new year by doing a sort of reflection, but instead of on my life, on the expansion and growth of my blog! I have to say, 2017 was a big year for Breakfast at Raes.

Hi everyone! It’s officially one week until Christmas, which means it’s about that time to quit procrastinating, and wrap those darn gifts! Over the years I’ve come to realize that people either LOVE to wrap or they absolutely dread it. Me? I love it!

I ordered three items, this coat being one of them. Two weeks after I ordered, the first two items came (from China) and they were so small, poor quality, and looking NOTHING like how they were displayed.

Enough with the back story, let’s get into this look!

Happy shopping weekend, shoppers!

I don’t know about you, but I accidentally went Black Friday shopping, when I had zero intentions of going Black Friday shopping. Let’s just say, I am happy I went, but my bank account is not happy.

However, had I not gone shopping, this amazing, comfy, over-sized sweater would have never entered my life, and that would have been tragic.

SO let’s talk about this look! Some of my fave outfits have actually just been thrown together last minute, and this was one of those outfits.
