My first official outfit post of 2016! Looking forward to all the new adventures 2016 has in store for my little family. Wishing you all health and lots of love this year, thank you for your continued support of my blog. I will never be able to express how much it means to me!

What are some of your New Year’s resolutions? One that was at the top of my list for 2016 was to be in bed and asleep by midnight… Every night! (I’m such a nigh owl, it’s a problem). Well- we’re only on day four and it’s literally 3AM as I’m typing this. Oops! I guess I’ll try for midnight again tomorrow.

  1. I love love love these boots, so great to see you style them in different ways! I love your blog and think you’re a wonderful inspiration for young women everywhere. Happy new year! :)

    All the best,

  2. Happy New Year!
    Good luck with your bedtime goal… I have posted my goals for this year on my blog. Maybe you’ll take some time to take a look… I’ve supported your blog for years, and would be nice to see you take a look at what I’ve created as my little place in the web! Your readers support you…but why not take a few moments to check out and support your fellow bloggers, too? Especially the newer/lesser known ones!

  3. Simplistic, chic, and cozy! Happy New Year, Rach! I’m a night owl, too. It’s hard to change your routine, especially if you’re productive at night! One of my many resolutions is getting back into reading more- books and Scriptures:)

  4. Hi, Rachel,

    I have been a follower of your blog and Instagram for years! I love seeing pictures of you and your beautiful family, and I am also loving the SnapChats and seeing a peek into your everyday life! I am a teacher who has always been more interested in beauty, fashion, and lifestyle products and I was just wondering if you have any advice for me or a way that I could maybe start a blog, a YouTube channel, or a beauty/fashion Instagram as my creative outlet? Right now I only have an Instagram (ke.child). I would just love to at least be able to do something I truly love as a part-time hobby. Is there a specific person or website you went to to help create your blog? Sorry to ask a million questions, I have just looked to you as an inspiration for so long and one of my New Year’s resolutions/goals was to follow my dreams and my true passion.

    Thank you for being such an inspiration!
    Love, Katelyn Childers

  5. Great post! Love your outfit! One of resolutions is to eat healthier and workout! It’s difficult when your schedule is cray cray but a little bit of effort a day can later lead to a greater effort! Wishing you and your beautiful family the best for 2016!


  6. Wow! Starting off the New Year right! It’s okay, resolutions are for breaking ;) I’m hoping to get more outfits to post this year and for this year to be the year for my blog to get better and more views! Happy 2016!!


  7. I have just found your blog via Instagram and have been engrossed for two evenings! Following from across the pond in France where I am a mother to five from 9 to 19. Love your fashion posts, they are all perfect, just wish we had the snow to match! Your baby is adorable, enjoy every moment, it flies by far too quickly. Once again so happy to have found this fab blog, but it’s nearly midnight and as I am so engrossed it’s another late night!!! Susan

  8. I am a total night owl too- my resolution is to be in bed by 11pm (knowing I will break it) My husband and I literally stay up all hours of the night- definitely not healthy! I also want to start working out (at least 2 days a week). Although I didn’t make it to the gym yet I put on my gym cloths tonight so thats a start, ha!
    Xo, Tara

  9. Love your classic look! I especially love the winter white cozy sweater against the snowy backdrop. Such a great look and your accessories are always on point.

    Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family Rachel!


  10. I love your sweater with those leggings – it looks so cozy and comfy. Oh my gosh, I have the same night-owl problem! I promise myself I will go to bed at 10pm and then I start working after the kids go to bed. The next thing I know, it’s 1am. Then, if I have the energy, I will work on writing my own blog post before going to bed! Wish I could sleep in but I have to get kids up and to school in the morning.

  11. Happy New Year Rach! Love this outfit! That sweater looks so cozy :). Miss you red lips!
    Wishing you lots of happiness, joy and success! Thank you for sharing bits of your life.
    My New Year’s resolutions are run 10 km by June, set up my new website and learn my 3-year old son how to write his name :). That’s definitely my top three.

    Much love <3

  12. I was introduced to your Instagram account through a friend and all your pics are such eye candy!!!
    Can you please tell me
