2015 in review... kind of

Thursday, December 31, 2015


Clearly the biggest thing that happened to me in 2015 was the arrival of our little man (Oliver) - check out my pregnancy reveal post HERE. It's been a challenging few months since he arrived. Balancing two children, a strong-willed toddler and a reflux babe is a task but I have to say, even in my sleep-deprived state, that these two children are my whole heart and I wouldn't have it any other way (okay, that's a lie, I'd probably have a lot more sleep in a perfect world).

I read a book... a whole book. My review of said book can be seen HERE (one day I'll read again for fun... right?!)

My brother got married and mini-me and I were both in the wedding. I was terrified I wouldn't be able to squish into my bridesmaid dress just a month post-baby, but it worked out. Naturally, mini-me was a rockstar.

We also found out this year that my step brother and his wife are expecting a little boy in March 2016 AND that my brother and his wife are expecting a little girl in April 2016.

Now that I reflect back, it's hard to pin-point all of the moments that I know I want to remember and celebrate but I know there were a lot of them.

Instead of wracking my exhausted brain I will share my top 10 posts of 2015:

fall go-to outfit - plaid dress
fall go-to outfit - cozy layers
spring challenge week 1 
fall go-to outfit - chambray and graphic tee
what I wore - spring style challenge
interview with Alison Lumbatis and fall style challenge 
transitioning your maxi dress from summer to fall
winter go-to outfit - tunic, skinnies and vest
winter go-to outfit - cable knits sweater
what I wore May 13, 2015

Essentially, it's the style posts that have been the most popular. This both amuses and surprises me particularly since I've been rocking the pjs 24/7 as of late (more on that HERE).

I've noticed, since having Oliver, that my blog seems to be shifting a little. I'm still posting about style-related things but also a lot more about parenting and life. While those posts may not be the most popular, there certainly ones I enjoy writing and you can expect to see more of moving forward.

My current state of exhaustion doesn't allow for much more writing... I will say, 2015 may not have been the best year of all-time, but it welcomed our baby boy so for that alone it's one for the record books.

I hope you all have beautiful memories to look back on from this past year and many more to make in 2016.

Wishing you all a very happy new year and all of the best life has to offer in 2016. Make this year count people!
