January was an incredible, record setting month for Karissamarieblog.com. Definitely the best month so far based on number of views each day and new subscribers. Not to toot my own horn or anything but we also just hit 8K on Instagram. We’re goin’ places people. We’re doing big things. Thank you all who take the time out of their day to read my little itty bitty posts. You might not know it but you make my day every single time you do. Thank you. I hope, in return, you get inspired after you’re done scrolling through my page. This month I plan to top January. I think we can do it based on the fact that I reach more and more of you every single day. You guys are doing a fabulous job sharing my page with your buddies, please continue to do that. I’m feeling very blessed that I have enough time and drive to post every other day. I hope I can continue do that as long as my schedule and creativity capacity allows it. One more time, thank you. 2015 is off to an incredible start. Yay us.
I wanted to start February with a romantic look. It is the month of love isn’t it? In almost every post leading up to Valentines Day I plan to give you inspiration on what to wear on the big special love bird day. Here’s romantic look #1. I don’t mean romantic as in sexy. Obviously, I’m covered head to toe. I mean romantic as in mysterious and glamourous. (Which is sexy enough to me.) This outfit has no rhyme or reason. I didn’t do much planning. It was one of those “go with the flow” kind of days. The cowled neckline sweater felt a little large around the waist so I decided to belt it. Cinching it in created a flattering hourglass shape which I believe created the “romance” factor. I elevated the look with some red lips, a top knot, and some statement tights. This look took me back to France. I would go back in a heart beat. All my girlfriends and I ate were banana & Nutella crepes. HEAVEN. Oh, how I wish my outfits could take me back to the places that inspired them in the first place.
The more exciting news is that this sweater has pockets…POCKETS!
