 Congratulations everybody, we made it to 2017! This year God's going to prove himself and unleash incredible and positive surprises, can I get an Amen.

I'm thankful for last year, God really overdid himself for me and my family and I really realized this when I remembered the little things. I'm positive that this year will be unimaginably great. I've already noted down my resolutions and will expand on this in my Sarah Speaks later this week.

Moving on, have you ever purchased an item that just goes with everything in your wardrobe? Well for me it's this flared sleeve top. I actually bought it for my store The Vintage Connection, but just loved it too much. As I noted in a recap post on top 2016 fashion trends, the flared sleeves trend is one I'd like to see more of in 2017.

Today I simply wore the top backwards and paired it with a pair of culottes from Sammydress. The culottes trend is dear to my heart as you've probably noticed and I'm quite impressed with this pair which costs only $15 here.
