So long! Farewell! Auf wiedersehen! Goodbye 2015! It's almost the end of the year & it's time to reflect on some of my favorite outfits from 2015. Looking back I can see that I absolutely had a favorite pair of shoes — my black velvet combat boots. I enjoyed pairing leggings with skirts, dresses, shorts to stay warm during the cooler seasons. I didn't play around too much with my hair nor did I experiment a lot with makeup. I'm a big fan of tropical print. All in all, it's funky but fun to browse back at yourself & your style. Let's take a look at my outfits of the day from 2015.
Winter & the New Year // January 4, 2015
This is one of my all time favorite outfits because it mixes a variety of things that I adore — velvet boots, fluffy socks, faux fur coat, leggings, & this awesome thrifted dress. It's got a wintery feel with a somewhat classic Christmas tartan design.
Get a Clue // January 25, 2015
I remember this day very well. It was an extraordinarily fun time playing board games with friends. The mix of patterns in this look works well with a toned down color palette. I like the element of whimsy & the memories from the day itself.
Gloomy Day // April 27, 2015
As the title states, it was a cold, gloomy day in Southern California. This outfit best reflects what I would wear on a day with rain, wind, & chilly temperatures. I have a growing collection of beanies but don't get much chance to wear them here.
Apple Blossoms & Florals // June 9, 2015
The funky combination of patterns here always make me smile. I remember one of my friends commenting "only you could get away with wearing such clashing prints." It's fun & reflects my personality well. I'm also sporting my Nana's shoes so it's a tribute to her!
Summer Tropics // September 12, 2015
I purchased this tropical dress from a little shop in Amsterdam, so it will always be a reminder of my journeys. The dress has fun details for the straps & an overall loose fit. It's truly the perfect San Diego outfit because it's easy-going but pretty. This is an example of a look that conjures positive memories.
KAABOO Del Mar // October 1, 2015
This is another outfit that utilizes something from my grandma's wardrobe; the rad tropical maxi skirt was hers & I wore it with pride as a member of the press for KAABOO Del Mar. Also highlighted here are my fuzzy socks which I genuinely wear year round. I have no shame!
Work in Progress // October 26, 2015
I really like this outfit because I finally invested in some new, versatile pieces that I can style in a myriad of ways. The Guess boots & sheer button up tunic are favorites in my wardrobe as I reach for them often. It's always nice to have useful pieces rather than something you bought on a whim & never utilize. This outfit made me feel powerful, sexy, stylish & that's always a good thing.
Which outfit from 2015 do you like best? Do you have any plans for the New Year? What kind of style posts & posts in general would you like to see on my blog :]
