New Years Eve

2014 | Under 500 Words

As said in Monday's post, to even think that we are few days away from a new year, leaves me wondering where the hell 2014 went! Of course I can get all nostalgic, and blab on about how much I've grown this year and ya know, the cliche shebang that comes along with a new year.

However, it is all true. Every year we grow and change, learn new things, and become different people. Much has occurred over the past year that leave me forever and eternally grateful. I could tell you right now that I am not the same I was 365 days ago- lord, I hope not- but you get my gist. From this year I'm able to pinpoint moments where the universe either slapped me in the face or gave a pat on the back- the latter is more appreciated. We each deal with a fair amount of triumph, struggle, heartbreak, and those moments that you simply cannot put into words. Those moments which remind us how incredible life is. They are able to put a smile on your face that is impossible to wipe off or leave you with butterflies in your stomach for too long.

I've learned that the world works in odd ways and that there are times when you feel like everything went downhill reallll fast (hey, I've been there), but things can change in an instant. When thinking about what my resolutions are for the new year, I noticed that they were connected with other things (sailing, school, blogging..... and boys (;). And whilst those are all fine, I think we sometimes forget about ourselves. To become a better you, to live your life, to follow your dreams... To even add more clicheness to this post, I think it's nice to view our life similarly to a novel and every year is a chapter that we can write on our own. There is no ghostwriters (eye-balling you Kardashians), nor spellcheck, but 100% you.

Perhaps this year wasn't the best, but you always have a chance to make the next read-worthy. On that note, I have some amazing things on the calendar for 2015- both for this digital universe and for myself. [insert fist emoji]

With that, I leave you with with my all-time favorite quote from Fitzgerald,

"I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again".

Happy New Year.

I still cannot wrap my mind around that the fact 2014 is almost over. Ringing in this year down in sunny St.Barths practically feels like yesterday.

I've been going through all of this year's posts to select the best looks of 2014. Of course, there is so many aspects of blogging that I love, but having my own sartorial diary at keyboard distance is ranking high on the list. It's wild to look back on how my style has evolved over this year (and 2013 as well..). I am forever grateful to have this outlet in my life and for each of you for reading it. 2 1/2 years ago, I had maybe twenty readers- if that- and now to thing that you are from around the world, means so much to me.

So much love to all you readers out there. The fact that you keep coming back- or if you are new, hello!- makes me giddy like Carrie Bradshaw at Bergdorfs. I hate to sound so melodramatic, but there is some really exciting things coming around this neck of the woods next year. With that, here is to another year of more writing at 1am, more puns, more shoes, and more of me figuring out how long is too long to spend editing an instagram picture. #sh*tfashionbloggerssay

Return on the 31st for a more personal reflection of 2014... until then, let's get ready for 2015.

A Look Back at 2013
























Hey! Sorry I've been a tad MIA as of late. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I mentioned in this


that I am currently enjoying the sunshine in St.Barths. I can't wait to share more of that with you tomorrow but if you can't wait, head over to 


 for quicker updates. I'd thought I would share a little recap of 2013. I chose one picture from each month that I feel represents my personal style this year. Hope you enjoy this little trip down memory lane.

It's crazy to see how much you have changed in twelve months. I have learned so much over the course of 2013 and experienced things I've couldn't do without blogging. I am so incredibly thankful for each moment of 2013. I have new skills and wisdom that I will take with me for years to come. I can't wait to start 2014 with a fresh mindset and new goals. Here is to a great 2014. Thank you for all your endless support. XO


I just want to say thank you for supporting Sailing the Sea of Style during 2012. It was such a year full of experiences and memories I'll never forget. Happy New Year, and here's to 2013!

Keep on Sailing,
