Are you sensing a theme here?! That’s right, it’s Style in a Small Town’s 1 year anniversary! 🙂 I can hardly believe that it’s been a whole year. Things have been so crazy with me lately. From being laid up with my heel, to hospital stays, surgery and recovering that I missed celebrating on the actual day, which was a couple of weeks ago. It’s such a huge accomplishment, though, that I didn’t want too much more time to pass by without celebrating!

That brings me to you guys…THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! It’s because of you reading, following along, commenting and supporting this little blog that I’ve been able to do this for a year! Without you, it’d just be me writing, carrying on and pretty much “talking” to no one, and who wants to do that!? I have a couple of special things planned over the next couple of weeks to show how much I appreciate you, so be sure to keep checking in so you don’t miss them! 🙂

Also, a HUGE shoutout and thank you to my wonderful friend and photographer, Tony! I’m very lucky to have a friend who puts up with all of the shenanigans, bossiness, moods, cold weather, hot weather and anything to get a good shot, that goes into blog photography! We have a lot of fun doing these shoots and this blog wouldn’t exist if I didn’t have such a great photographer, so thank you so much, Tony!! You will never know how much I appreciate all of the hard work you do! 🙂

Dress: SheIn c/o (only $16!) // Faux fur vest: VonMaur (old, similar, love this one!) // Necklace: Baublebar (my favorite!) // Boot cuffs: Earth’s Treasures (only $12, call 815-777-9005 to order yourself a pair and tell them I sent you!) // Boots: Michael Kors (old, similar, save here, here and here) // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Baublebar // Bag: Michael Kors (similar) // Sunnies: Ray-Ban

On to today’s look: I thought this outfit would be the perfect one to celebrate in, especially because I love a good faux fur vest, as evidenced here, here and here and I love to wear dresses and boots. This time of year is the best time to dig out those boots you’ve been longing to wear and keep your dresses and skirts out a little longer. With the cool, crisp mornings and the warm afternoons it’s just too hot out to be wearing tights, so take advantage of the opportunity to go sans tights while you can! 😉

As always, THANK YOU, THANK YOU so much for reading! It’s been a fabulous first year and I can’t wait to see what the next one has in store!

xoxo, Hillary
