It's always fun taking a trip down memory lane to reminiscence the past year. As 2013 draws to a close, I rounded up some of my favorite looks that I have posted on the this blog, twenty to be exact.
From the chevron craze earlier this year, to leopard being the new neutral, wearing more stripes than anything else, bright and bold colors, ankle boots being my BFF all year long, being mad about plaid, fur vests galore and my Phillip Lim for Target bag being my favorite purchase of the year, 2013 was probably the most fun I have had with fashion.
I learned what I like and don't like, what suits my style and budget and not to buy and wear things solely because someone else has it or looks cute in it. Believe it or not, I toned down my spending during the second half of the year and really thought hard about my purchases and how they could be worn more than just once. The key was reminding myself that I didn't necessarily need a particular item just because it was cute.
Style/fashion blogging is truly more than just clothes, it's getting inspired and inspiring others, building self confidence, managing personal budgets and financial boundaries, learning self control, a place where you can actually show people a glimpse of your personality without having to say a word and most importantly, for me, a creative outlet that's all my own.
I look forward to sharing more of my personal life and style with all of you in 2014. Thank you again for making this year one of the most memorable ones in all my years. This little space of mine is pretty special. I wouldn't be pouring my heart into if it weren't for you. If you have a question about any of the looks posted today, just shoot me an email or leave a comment. I didn't have the focus to link back to the original posts. Sorry for slacking.
I wish all of you a safe and Happy New Year. I hope you ring in the new year with a happy heart and big dreams for 2014. I am taking tomorrow off, so the Random Wednesday link up will be back in business next week. Be safe and cheers to us all. God bless!
