New Beginnings, New Adventures

New Beginnings, New Adventures

Happy 2017, darlings! I have so many feelings about my very first 2017 post! I’ve officially blogged full-time for an entire year! Can you even believe it? I can’t.  I can’t thank you guys enough for all your feedback, kind comments, emails, and loyalty. You all mean so much to me!



I’m starting off the New Year with much happiness and love. I’m beyond grateful for all of you, and what life has in store for me and my family! My husband and I are expecting baby #2 and as you know—we’re over the moon to welcome Baby J this Spring! I’m currently 7 months pregnant and even though my pregnancy isn’t always as easy as it seems in pictures, I do try to enjoy my last three months of pregnancy. As my bump continues to grow, so does my excitement. 2017 is very much a new beginning for me and my family!


New Beginnings are very much new adventures waiting to be unfold, and I honestly cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store for us all! I feel like I know so many of you personally! Keeping in touch with you on a daily basis is seriously such a blessing! I always wanted What Would V Wear® to be an online space where like-minded people come and interact with each other. I don’t want you to come here and solely look at my pictures and leave. I want to get to know you, and I want you to get to know me.


So, here’s a toast to 2017! The New Year is a wonderful opportunity to say how much I love and treasure you! Every year turns into an exciting adventure only because of you! Thank you so much for it. I can repeat the words of gratitude to you endlessly. Have an amazing Year, lovelies!

    Happy New Year Vanessa! You always look fabulous and pregnancy suits you well. I know what you mean though, not everything is what it seems in pictures. I hope you are well and look forward to seeing your bump grow over the coming months, how exciting! 🙂 I love your posts and your pictures – I only started my blog around eight months ago and I would love to be able to do it full time one day, just a pipe dream at the moment.
    Best wishes for 2017 lovely xoxo

I hope that these last 2 months are good for you – no tiredness or sickness! Blessed you and your family for the arrival of Baby J! It’s true, I loved to come to your blog and see your amazing pictures, but also to know you! Congratulations for the first year of full-time blogging! I am very proud that we got to know each other and that you are so kind and always saying “let’s support each other”! That’s the meaning of life, would be lovely if more people thought like you! An amazing year for you and your family, dear V., many hugs and kisses!

    You look gorgeous babe! Love this dress and your cute bump. I saw your note on IG about being at the hospital, and I am hoping everything is alright. Thinking of you and that sweet baby.
