2014 in review: favorite outfits

In 2014, I ...
 wore a crop top to work,

 thrifted an awesome black shirtdress in a lady-like length,

 wore all neutrals and liked it (!??!),

 experimented with a trilby, and

sewed with chiffon for the first time and made myself a kimono top.
       I wish that I had blogged a little more regularly in 2014, but I'm not going to let that bother me. After all, real life - like fulfilling all my family and  work obligations and getting to aikido practice two times a week - comes first.
      It's interesting to skim through the year's outfits and pick a few that stand out. Something I noticed was the predominance of black and gray. I still love my colors, but based on these photos they've become strategic accents instead of the main attraction.
     I'm still musing over what resolution(s), if any, I would like to set for 2015. But then again, I'm a procrastinator who figures I have the whole of January to figure out this year's goals. ;) 
    Are you more timely than I am and have your goals/resolutions made already? If so, leave 'em in the comments box for me to admire.


  1. Yes, real life trumps blogging. But you did fine. These outfits are attractive. Happy New Year!

  2. I never make resolutions - they only lead to stress. But you do look great in black and grey, everyone should employ them more!

  3. definitely lots of black and gray in my 2014 wardrobe too :) have a happy 2015!

  4. Thanks, Ally! Hope your 2015 is off to a wonderful start! I'd like to blog a little more regularly this year because I enjoy posting and I think it pushes me to get a little more creative with my outfits.

  5. Erin, you're right - it can be stressful. I think a lot of times, people get too ambitious or are not specific enough to measure their success. I've found that a less stressful approach is to choose a word for the year.

  6. Thanks, Carolyn! I wore all black and gray to lunch today, so I guess I am carrying those colors into 2015, too.


Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love comments, so please leave one if you like. :)
