Happy New Year! I hope you all had the best holiday season and are ready for a fresh start. I had the most amazing vacation and will be posting all about it later this week. I unfortunately have been a little under the weather since returning which has given me lots of time to create content and compile a bunch of best 2021 of lists.
This collection of looks made the top ten because they were either one of my personal favorite looks or got the most love on social media and in some cases both.
The look above was from my girls trip to Napa Valley in April and was my most engaged post on Instagram this year. This shot was taken by my blogger pal Tillie (@tillieadelson) after doing some wine tasting at Ashes & Diamonds Winery.
Everything about this look screams summer to me: the delicious buttery yellow ruffles and a crisp white cotton one shoulder top, I might have to wear this look again come June!
I definitely have a thing for pant suits. I love that they can be worn so many different ways and in so many different situations. For instance this could be worn to an office environment, to a party, out for dinner, to a wedding the possibilities are endless. The jacket is perfect year round, I brought it on my recent tropical vacation to throw over my evening dresses and I also wore it with shorts in the same color.
Despite the fact that I am completely obsessed with this dress, I have yet to wear it anywhere public. Ive been saving it for something really special and I am extremely mad at myself for neglecting to bring it on my cruise with me, hopefully I will have plenty of trips in my future to bring it along on.
SUNDRESS GINGHAM DRESS VIA SHOPBOP (SOLD OUT, LOVE THIS BEAUTY)
This look made the cut because it truly represents my daily style. This is something I would wear out to dinner with the ladies, a movie with my hubs or just even out shopping. I seriously wear these booties nearly every day because they are so easy to pull on and make any outfit cooler, good news they are still available!
If you didn’t know this about me yet, green is my favorite color so this look with three shades of Mother Natures best was a shoo-in for this list. I give all credit to the muted army green of the faux leather to make this color combo work as well as the pop of orange of course.
I am a lover of the statement top for sure and it seems a lot of you out there or at least those on the NYC subway are too. I wore this outfit on the train to get from my hotel to Soho to shoot this look and I got many a compliment on the top and/or whole look so this had to make the best of 2021 list for sure. I think I mentioned it before but I had no idea that there were coconuts on this print until I posted the photos, I love it even more now!
Color was definitely the name of the game for me in 2021 and this look had the best of the best citrus shades. I know a lot of you don’t wear this much color on a regular basis but for me the brighter the better!
Denim shorts have been a mainstay in my wardrobe since childhood. They never go out of style and undeniably have a cool girl factor to them. Once my husband had to to fix a dresser drawer that held my jean short collection he was utterly shocked at how many pairs I own, truthfully sometimes I am too!
This look is definitely an ALL TIME favorite and not just of 2021. All the pieces individually get worn regularly and together work perfectly. You know Im a sucker for the one shoulder look and this one in a sweater fabric is just so good! This is a look that will stand the test of time, no “what was I thinking” will ever take place looking at this one years from now.
I hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane, I love looking back at my outfits and my thoughts over the years. This blog has become something of a diary for me to remind me what I was doing, wearing, thinking… Thanks for reading today and always, so grateful for all of you!
Let’s do this 2022!!
