2014 Favorite Outfits

Posted on: December 29, 2014

Since I’ve been under the weather, (not the flu, yeah!), 

Here’s 2014 in Review

Linking up with Visible Monday!  

IMG_2968

I loved this outfit and it remains my number one look

that bring people from Pinterest to my blog

IMG_2922

I had looked for a long time for a cognac jacket and 

was thrilled with the houndstooth pants and cognac.

IMG_2911

This was my experimenting with layering 3 pieces and something that I now embrace…

well at least when it is cold enough…

A striped t shirt and lavender checked top added subtle pattern mixing

IMG_3061

Evergreen jeans and a dolman sleeved top, what’s not to love?

IMG_3267

I love the hoodie look with a blazer…

a fantastic way for this mom on the go to incorporate

 her love of blazers into her casual lifestyle

IMG_3284

This striped, thrifted sweater is a strong statement against the neutrals,

I can’t get enough of this sweater and wear it often..

IMG_0533

My attempt at boyfriend jeans didn’t go over well, but this is 

my substitute, with jeans two sizes bigger than my size worn

with a very dressy navy hounds-tooth blazer and accents of hot pink.  

IMG_3375

I’ve definitely embraced more neutrals this year, but

My heart sings when a bright is present… 

IMG_3638

This beaded bottom pleated maxi is a piece I absolutely love and need to wear more,

since it garners such wonderful feelings…

I see this as a sophisticated boho look, which feels right for me..

IMG_3747

Another boho look, in which I feel hit the vibe I want for those type looks

Sporty luxe really resonated with me in Spring. 

Floral ked tennis shoes and cargo pants along with a shell top and

quilted sweater hit a good balance of sporty and luxe.

Adding the fedora took it to a boho level too, fun!

IMG_0109

A good example of my move towards more neutral looks. 

My second color of the cargo pants..

IMG_0396

This embroidered aztec print skirt literally has been in my dreams these past few weeks,

as I think of ways to style it for winter… Of course we’ve had rain so waiting for dry weather..

This was scored from my one and only Golden Tote purchase this year! 

IMG_0459

This top was something I added to my style as part of

Get Your Pretty On’s Style Challenge…

I grew to love it and don’t get me started on the Birkenstock trend…

I can tell this was a bowling day, as that tote holds my shoes…LOL…

IMG_0483

Another look inspired by the Style Challenge and the new metallic sandals 

I added and grew to see as very versatile for Summer…

IMG_0558

This demonstrates 3 new loves,

the peplum top, soft pants and wonderful flat sandals. 

IMG_0686

Another look that falls into the Sporty Luxe look,

I fully embraced.

These soft pants received compliments from strangers ever t

IMG_0919

This thrifted navy sweater and my cargo pants really got a lot of use in Spring

and every outfit with them became a favorite…

IMG_1294

I had resisted the faux tuck , but finally gave it a shot…

I think if I lose the 8 pounds I gained and have held onto,

I might be more apt to do this more often…

IMG_1374

The sweatshirt dress and peep toe booties are again

the Sport Luxe trend…

The new purse from Just Fab, has become a favorite.  

IMG_1391

Lace and stripes, what’s not to love??

IMG_1785

Channeling my inner Punky Brewster…

Styling my new black booties from Ireland

IMG_1847

Adding this chunky white sweater and the black hobo purse

really upped my winter style…

Another look that demonstrates my move to more neutrals. 

IMG_1982

Winterizing a summer boho kimono

I wasn’t sure about volume over volume, but

Pinterest interest suggests it was a success

IMG_2143

I am thrilled to have added a ruana to my style.

I am loving all the ponchos and ruanas on trend now.

IMG_2176

The greens and browns always meet my approval.

The mix of texture with velvet, corduroy, ruffles and leather make this even better..

My reaction to Joan Rivers passing was to go on Ebay and replace a velvet blazer I’d had before my weight loss.  

Dear readers, I’ve been having body aches for a few days and feared the onset of the flu from my oldest…I think I can rule that out for now since the aches get worse as the day goes on with movement… that doesn’t coincide with my experience of the flu and body aches… I am just assuming it’s the wet weather on top of all my hard work for the holiday…

I hope you are all well, as there really are a lot of viruses and that darn flu going around!  

Gratitude

I am grateful that I stayed up and watched the last game of regular season, and the Steelers win the AFC North!  ( I was tired and really wanted to go to bed..)

I am grateful that my son’s plans to go to DC fell through as, something wasn’t sitting right with my instincts on this trip. 

I am grateful that my three youngest went ice skating down at the beach, had a wonderful time and made memories.(my daughter loves ice skating the two boys had never been before)

I am grateful for leftovers and a break from cooking!  

I am grateful that my sister loved my frittatas and was heading to the store to get ingredients to make them.

Enjoyed the review is the past year. I was sick with bronchitis throughout the holidays so I know what a drag that can be. But thankful for my wonderful daughters who took over totally for dinner. Happy New Year to you and your family.

I hope you feel better soon! I enjoyed your year in review, and the way you really know your own style. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xox.

Great stuff, and you’ve shown some of my favorites as well! I wish you and your family all the best for 2015, and look forward to seeing more and more of your posts!

Thank you! I enjoy your blog and look forward to another year!
