And so here we are at the last year of my 4-part, slightly drawn-out, recap of my years of blogging. This last year may be the year I enjoyed blogging the most. It's a little hard to explain, especially if I hope to be brief, but blogging can be very all-consuming. In both positive and negative ways, it can easily take over your life. I got a little caught up. And then I gave myself a stern talking to, about perspective, jealousy, priorities and all kinds of other things. And then I chilled out. I want to put full effort into everything I post, I want to produce good content and I want be on my game. But it's just a fashion blog and it's supposed to fun. I've said fun a lot of times in the last month of blogging. I could stand to use a thesaurus but that sounds like work... and this is supposed to be... fun.
Style wise, I have found myself a new bosom buddy. Blazers are where it is at. I mean, I will always love a good dress, a vintage dress especially, but blazers and jeans are in the regular rotation now. And for the rest? I'm trying new looks and taking every opportunity to over dress for the occasion. Some things will never change.
I can't deny it, I'm always going to have a soft spot for circle skirts and pink. Put them together and things get even better. HERE
Sequin vest, my favourite drop crotch pants and my studded boots. I feel like this look sums up the level of bad-assery I have been attempting to acheive to this year. HERE
I took the sleeves off this vintage dress my mama gave me and suddenly it felt very wearable and fun. I cannot get over the amount of work that embroidery and those little pin tucks must have taken... HERE
Well cut blazer and ripped up jeans. Uniform right there. Sadly I think these jeans might need to be retired as the holes are getting a little out of control. I'm willing to test the limits on that though... I'm sure I will keep you posted. HERE
I thought I remembered someone commenting on this outfit that I had a serious Tom Petty vibe going on here. But now I can't find that comment and I'm worried that I am at the point where I am making stuff up to create blog content. But seriously, whether it is in my head or whether somebody actually said it, I hope I am making Tom Petty proud. HERE
Leather, denim and wool... love this mix. This jacket is actually way on sale now... Can't wait to wear this whole thing again as soon as this winter departs us. I am typing this as we are getting hammered by snow. HERE
I don't think a red suit needs much of an explanation for making my favourites list. HERE
... and because I can, here is a bonus.
This picture cracks me up. It ties for first in the category of accidentally hilarious moments Matt has caught on film. The other one is pretty awesome too... What you didn't know until this post was that I am a super hero beneath all the fashion blogger stuff. In this photo I was about to tackle someone wearing pink terry cloth trackpants. I've just got a heart for helping people... HERE
*ugh, sorry, word verification on for a bit while I try to rid myself of a spambot who tells me I write so well, that I am so funny and that I should rent a dumpster or prune an apple tree? The flattery almost got me.
