Happy birthday to me! I’m 32 years old today and I think I’m looking & feeling pretty good. Also, I hope everyone has a very happy new year!
For the past few years I’ve written a review post featuring my favorite outfits from that year. Since I took a six-month break this year and haven’t posted many outfits in 2016, I decided to instead share my favorite outfits since I started documenting my outfits. I technically started blogging in 2010 but it was just an ‘every now and then, when I felt like it’ sort of thing. I started blogging my outfits in 2013 when I started graduate school. So the outfits outlined above and detailed below are from the past three years. The majority of my favorites are from 2014, when I was finally hitting my stride in blogging. And the outfits I chose are the ones I’ve worn the most in real life and would totally (read: will most likely) wear again in the coming year.
Original post 1: Plum is one of my favorite colors. Even in 2013 when this was taken.
Original post 2: I was figuring out how to dress like a graduate student and succeeding.
Original post 3: Weekend layers are perfect for any backyard bbq.
Original post 4: Wearing sweaters in the summer because of office air conditioning.
Original post 5: When a short girl is able to successfully pull off a midi skirt — it’s not too long!
Original post 6: I have a lot of little green dresses but this is one of my favorites. Perfect for holiday parties.
Original post 7: Sequins are perfect for any party, but especially a holiday party.
Original post 8: A fuzzy sweater, boots, and a knit hat to keep me warm and cozy in the winter.
Original post 9: Warm breezes in the middle of February make you dream of warm sunshine.
Original post 10: I’m drawn to neutral colors, especially white, with maybe a splash of color in the form of an accessory or blazer/jacket.
Original post 11: My favorite little black dress that can be worn for day and night.
Original post 12: I finally found a job after grad school and got to wear cute outfits like this again.
Original post 13: That one piece of clothing that I love more than anything but I’m afraid to wear, even though it has shown up twice in this list.
Original post 14: Adding some color to my collection of jeans/bottoms with these purple pants. And rocking a cute baby bump.
Original post 15: When a short girl is able to successfully pull off a blanket scarf and it doesn’t swallow her whole.
I’m hoping that 2017 is a much better year than 2017. Also, one last time:
