What a year 2015 has been? Professionally, I have had the pleasure of working with many new and existing clients, I styled my first magazine shoot, attended several Seattle fashion events, and redesigned my website (hopefully you are enjoying!). I’ve also tried to grow my blog, which has meant posting with more frequency. Often I’m working into the night (after bedtime, of course), while my husband catches up on “The Walking Dead,” currently wearing my new flannel pjs and socks…not so glamorous.
When I thought about how I wanted to close out my year in style (always), I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and highlight some of my favorite looks. It has been fun to edit them and see so many of my tried-and-true favorite pieces on repeat (such as my treasured leopard Clare V. clutch!). Hope you enjoy…
This striped tee from the Gap makes another appearance in my top picks. Such a great staple piece that is still in heavy rotation in my wardrobe. Here are a couple of other navy and white favorites: T by Alexander Wang, H&M
You’ll see these Madewell high-rise jeans again, they are still my favorite. I would buy every color, if I could! And this Uniqlo poncho is seeing me thru the winter.
One style goal this year was to wear less jeans (ok…baby steps), but this navy, floral-print Wayf dress was an early fall favorite. I’m currently wearing it now with tall boots and my sherpa vest (you’ll see more of that one below too). This year I fell back in love with flare jeans in a big way. This pair from the Gap remain my ultimate favorite (I also have them in black). I love the front patch pockets on this Hudson pair as well. I’m still Lovin’ all of the 70’s-inspired fashion that continues to be a big trend into 2016.I was also diggin’ the wide-leg cropped pant this year (also pictured above in black). I’m currently rockin’ these 7FAM culottes – perfect with clogs and sweaters, even tall boots! I can’t wait for a warmer weather pairing with sandals and a tank.See, not wearing jeans! I rediscovered Maison Scotch this year, where I found unique pieces such as this striped maxi to incorporate into my wardrobe. If you missed the post in which I styled the skirt 3 different ways, it’s an amazingly versatile piece.
There’s that Aritzia sherpa vest! I bought this last fall and it continues to be an item in my wardrobe that I am constantly reaching for when my outfit needs a little something extra (or I need extra warmth!). And this dress is another Maison Scotch find.I was just thinking today how often I wear a flannel shirt (like, what did I wear before?!). And my Stan Smith sneakers may just be the coolest shoe I purchased in 2015…early 2015 (I’m a trend-setter, after all!)
Beyond sharing my style favorites, I would like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ from the bottom of my heart – I am very grateful for your kind feedback, generous comments, and thoughtful words of encouragement. I know that your days are very full, and taking time to stop by my blog and share in my style adventures truly means a lot to me. Thank you (always) for reading!
Best wishes for a happy and safe New Year! Hoping 2016 is a great one for all of you!! ~Jenn
