So, 2015. Quite a year, yeah?
I’m still feeling too burnt out to do any substantive retrospectives (which is too bad, because I had so many ideas earlier in the year), but I figured I owed this wonderful, stressful, crazy year at least one wrap-up post – and what better than a “best of” post? If you’ve been reading along these past 12 months – first of all, thanks! – then you will have seen most of these outfits before, but let’s take a minute or two and revisit the evidence that I am occasionally capable of putting together a legitimately cute outfit.
In reverse chronological order …
The “starry night dress” … which looks like a skirt here. I rarely wear all black, but I loved this take on “goth Adina”. L-to-the-OL.
The “whimsical thrifted skirt” outfit … which would be all that I would wear in the alternate universe in which Library Studies became my chosen career path (see original post here).
The “blueberry, 2015 edition” outfit … which is me at my most monochromatic – nary a floral in sight (see original post here).
The “camo florals” outfit … which expresses my deep and abiding love for pinning sparkly things on chunky knit scarves. I have very specific loves, what can I say (see original post here).
The “everyday grey dress” (aka closet superstar) outfit … which I have worn more times than I care to count (see original post here – I called this one early).
The “midi skirt romance” outfit … which is one of my fave silhouettes of the year (see original post here).
The “moody florals at the office” outfit … which is one of my most popular looks ever, believe it or not (see original post here).
The “I can pull off a white blazer after all” outfit … which apparently never made it to the blog. Huh. It’s a good outfit, you guys.
The “no really, white blazers are awesome” outfit … another early contender for fave outfit (see original post here).
The “twirliest dress” outfit … no, really, watch me twirl here.
The “Gangs of New York pants” outfit … we all remember this one, right? If not, you can check it out here, if nothing else to revisit my husband’s stellar photoshop skills.
The “English professor” outfit … which I have also worn a few times, in slightly (but only slightly) different iterations this year (see original post here).
The “ubiquitous blush blazer” outfit … I could have picked any number of variations here, but I have a weakness for this skirt, so here’s your winner (see original post here).
The “Adina found a hat, at last” outfit … which also proves I wore shorts this year. All kinds of shorts.
Last, but not least, the “old, dependable dress” outfit … which never gets old, really (see original post here).
And, just because I have an impossible time picking, a few runners up:
And there you have it, folks. Thanks for sticking with me for another year, and I hope to see you all again next year. And before I bow out for 2015, I have one last announcement to make.
Drum roll …
No, I’m not having another baby … except that I kinda did. I had a book baby, you guys. And that baby is here, finally! I’m excited and scared s**tless, to be honest, and I debated right up till I hit “publish” whether to include a (non-affiliate, haha) link to it or not. Please don’t feel obliged to buy it, but if you do, I hope you enjoy it. Like all first time (book) parents, I’m pretty proud of it and think it’s the cutest (book) baby ever … which, of course, is entirely subjective. It does have a really kickass cover, and that’s a fact.
Happy New Year!
