I know... Better late than never, though never late is better. Listen, friends, I'll spare you the boring details of my short time away from the blog, but I will say this: family is everything, ya'll! 

Sometimes, when I'm feeling uninspired and/or lost, I look to my loved ones for inspiration—they light up my darkest moments and inspire me in ways I can't even explain.

These pictures were taken before winter decided to come early—hello, November! So long, bare legs and sheer blouses.

And now on to the most exciting part of this post—my very first contest winner. Congratulations, Sammie! You've been a long-time reader of Style Operator—thank you so much for following along and all of your sweets comments. Enjoy your @ivyandblu dress and make sure you send us some pictures of how you styled it! :)
