Best of 2017

How are we already at the end of another year?  2017 hasn't been too kind to a lot of people (including myself), but I want to focus on the positive and look towards the future with good intentions.  As for my blog, 2017 was a fun, steady year filled with great outfits!  I'm going to highlight some of my (and your) favorite outfits of the year below.  Enjoy!

This year was definitely a bit transitional.  I cut out some brands with poor ethical standards and added in some new woman-owned small businesses.  Trashy Diva, The Pretty Dress Company, Vintage Inspired by Jackie, and Stop Staring continue to be strong contributors to my style.  I found a new love for Sarsparilly and Ebone and Ivory, and I look forward to expanding my closet to other new-to-me shops in 2018!  1940's and 1950's styles are still my thing, but I feel like I might try to experiment outside my style niche next year.  Accessorizing was still a challenge (as it is every year) but I'm forever making a small but steady progress.

As for me personally, I lost one of my dogs this year.  While it's still incredibly painful, I'm working to getting myself to a better place.  I'm also looking for full time work, which is really scary when you've been out of the game for four years!  Things feel like they're rapidly changing (I mean, Bianca is going to be four next week) and I'm just trying to ride that wave and accept whatever 2018 has in store for me.

I hope this year has been a wonderful time to learn and grow and I'm hoping 2018 has nothing but the best for you!  If there's anything you'd love to see happen in 2018 with my blog, please let me know in the comments below!

  3. As always, you killed it. Your pictures are so perfect and warm looking and I hope the new year is kind to you! I cannot believe Bianca is going to be four. That is wild.
