How was everyone’s holiday?! Did you buy yourself a Christmas gift? When I was younger, I never did this, but as I get older I realize how important it is to treat ourselves well. Now I buy myself a Christmas present, birthday treat, and even a Mother’s Day gift (“from my pets”)!
This year I bought myself a Alexander McQueen skull scarf. This is something completely fabulous and frivolous that I’ve had my eye on for awhile!
So one of my new year’s resolutions is to be more helpful to my readers. It’s easy for bloggers to get so caught up in “fashionista world” that they forget about real women who need real wearable workable wardrobes. And hey, since I also have a full-time job and life outside blogging, I need a real wardrobe too! (This doesn’t mean that I won’t also have posts drooling over the latest at New York Fashion Week, because …well, you know I LOVE that too!)
I’ve been spending some time lately thinking about what makes a wardrobe both hard-working AND fun and I keep coming back to this formula: classics/basics mixed with trends.
So here’s my list of favorite outfits of 2017, month by month, built with this simple method!
Wishing all my readers a very magical holiday! I’m taking a short break, but will be back right after Christmas with after-Christmas sales, a guide for cleaning out your closet, and of course new outfits! In the meantime, let’s stay connected on Instagram & Facebook!
