Year in outfits 2010

I did one of these last year and people seemed to dig it so here is a year in 12 outfits. I had started thinking I'd pick my faves but honestly it was too frustrating and I kept changing my mind and I was confusing the months and had too many for some and none of others. So a random outfit from each of the past 12 months.

January


February


March


April


May


June


July


August


September


October


November


December



Thoughts. I tend to prefer a full skirt and they make up the majority of my wardrobe. I own way more blue than I would of guessed. I really love a wood heel I have some on in four of the months. I have three of the same cardigan from NY&Co (two shrunk and have too short sleeves, the green one above) I wore two of them over 3 months. Every single item except the September dress (Anna Sui for Target from 2009) was either gifted or bought on extreme sales and clearance.

The black sandals in July, Sandals in May, Shirt in July and purse in October, Scarf in November, Boots and scarf in December were all bought in 2010. Everything else was from before 2010. Which pleases me because I was focusing cleaning my wardrobe out this year and keeping just the things I LOVE.

Except September dress and shirt and Octobers skirt everything is cotton, cashmere, silk, leather, wood or wool. That is the thing I love the most. I made a conscious decision to TRY and cut synthetic fabrics from my life. I appear to be doing a good job at that.

Love it, and can I say I lust that black and white jacket? Soooo pretty.

Do you feel like your aesthetic is pretty fixed at this point, or are you still facing a lot of rapid evolution?

I think it's been pretty fixed for a few years. I don't think I've ever changed anything rapidly. I'm a baby stepper usually. I slowly test the waters of things and work my way into things.
The jacket is from Kohls 3 summers ago.
Thank you!

What a great post! I know you say you tend to prefer a full skirt, but I must say, July's outfit is oh-so-chic! What an amazing look!

Thank you! You know what it is? I like how a pencil skirt looks but I'm soooooo self conscious in them. I feel I can "hide" in a full one.

I love your green cardigan, the black & white jacket, the color combinations for October and of course the blue extensions in June! I finally bought some blue extensions but I have to get my hairstylist to cut them so they go with my current hair length!

Thank you! Mine was just a tiny clip less than an inch across and I just snipped it with scissors

From what I can tell lately you've been doing a pretty good job of wearing natural fibers. Yay!
