2014 Midway Reflection

Every once and a while I like to take a look back and reflect on the past.  The blog is no different.  I'd like to take this chance to post a recap of the past few months here on the blog.  Transition seasons are some of the most crucial.  When the weather is 80 degrees and sunny one day, and snowing the next, it's hard to figure out what to wear in the morning.  So here's some of my favorite posts so far in 2014.

A Freezing January 


We started the year off the only way we midwesterners know how  — freezing cold and bundled up from head to toe.   One of my favorite trends this past winter was mohair sweaters — they're super soft and pretty warm!

The Snowpocalypse was real this winter, and it just never stopped.  Pretty much the entire winter I was snowed into central Illinois.   Luckily Drew and I were still able to get out and get some great shots for the blog:



February Fun

Come February, it was still a frozen tundra in Illinois.  It was cold, but we also had some fun traversing the half -frozen prairie and embracing some fun cold weather styles such as infinity scarves, sweaters, and wooly shawls.  I think gold was one of my favorite accents this winter.




April Stye Showers 

In April I started posting some more detailed posts about developing a personal style.  I also had some fun with a 6 piece challenge.

I guess the turning weather conditions started an animal craze in my wardrobe, and I bought a deer necklace and went bunny crazy when Easter rolled around.


Flying into Summer

It seemed like winter lasted forever, and then I blinked and it was suddenly summer.  With the warmer weather florals started to crop up both from the ground and on shirts, pants, skirts, headbands — you name it!  I didn't get the chance to photograph as much as I'd liked to, but this spring I've been big into florals.  My favorite might be this lace-edged floral crop top that I styled in June.


As the warm weather continues to make its presence known around here, I'm catching the summer project bug (as well as allergies, apparently), and I think you'll be seeing more posts like my bike skirt DIY show up on the blog soon (especially with all the changes on the horizon (more on that later!)).

Lots of exciting things to come, I'm sure.  So long for now!
