(sorry, this was supposed to go up yesterday!)
Happy New Year’s Eve! (and Happy Birthday to my dad!)
Fun fact…what started out as a resolution to organize my closet quickly became this blog you are reading right now! You see, I am not big on New Year’s Resolutions. I think you should try to better yourself year-round, and it’s silly to attempt to “fix” things about yourself on a predetermined date. However, my closet was getting worse and worse – I’m terribly messy – and it was about time to do something about it.
So I downloaded the Stylebook App and started to log everything in my closet (no, this is not a sponsored post). Well anyway, that turned into me using the app to create outfits, which turned into me taking pics of the outfits, which then became this blog!
I know I’m not winning any “best blog” awards here, and I probably only have 5 readers (hi!), but it has been fun working on it this past year. I hope to continue posting regularly in 2016!
To celebrate the end of my first blog year, I decided to showcase my favorite look from each month. Here goes!
This was my first blog post! It was also the only thing I posted in January, haha. I just love the bird sweater, colorful tights, and those shoes find their way onto my feet at least once a week.
I think this was the first weekend look that I posted. I have quite a few bags, but one of my favorites has to be this one from Jump From Paper! I always get compliments when I wear it, and people have to stop to get a better look at it. Bonus…zombie t-shirt!
Ah yes – my PAX East cosplay! You must have known that I would include at least one costume in this roundup 🙂 I’m very proud of this one, since I made the entire costume from scratch – I sewed the turtleneck (each stripe was pieced together, since I couldn’t find a jersey stripe in the colors I needed), the jumper, the gloves, and the hat.
I just loved wearing fun and bright colors this day (which also happened to be Easter Sunday). Perfect for a stroll around Copley Square with Dave!
Speaking of colors, I adore this light mint hue! The black stripes, trim, and belt on this dress are velvety, which is so lovely in person. A polka dot bag and headband complete the look!
A dress with kitchen tools on it? Perfection! I also love the color of my hair – I think I left the dye in for like 20 extra minutes, and the vibrancy was awesome!
Boy do I love summer clothes! I practically live in dresses like these during the warmer months, and I love how the neon bag just pops!
Hehe, another fun purse! This was one of the first true novelty purses that I purchased, and it makes me laugh every time I use it! I also love the back of that dress, and the homemade skirt I wore over it.
Technically, I posted this in November, but I’m including it as my October favorite since I wore it on Halloween. This was my first time attempting a more retro-inspired hairstyle, and I know it won’t be my last. Oh – and taking these photos was so much fun! (runner-up for October: my NYCC cosplay)
I thought this was the perfect outfit for a warm autumn afternoon – and I was happy we had such a mild season!
Ah, I just love this one! I think it perfectly captures my style – black/white with a pop of color. And the red accents go so well with my hair 🙂

I hope that you all have a wonderful and safe New Year. I’m planning some fun things for my lil’ old blog in 2016, starting with a giveaway. Make sure to come back soon for more details!
