It’s that time again. Every six months I look back at my outfits from the past six months, pick some favorites and least favorites, and examine the way my style has progressed. Each time I do this, I have more outfits that I like and less that I dislike, which is cheering. My style has been undergoing some changes lately, and I think my wardrobe is finally starting to catch up. I’m wearing more and more outfits that I feel fit my style, though I definitely still have some mess-ups. But before I get to those, here are some looks that were a little bit out of my comfort zone or that I hadn’t tried before.
This outfit pushed me out of my comfort zone on multiple levels. Wearing just black and white can be intimidating, and with the beret added to it, I couldn’t help feeling a little bit costume-y. This was also one of the first times I’d worn tights with shorts. However, I did like how it turned out. Original post here.
Pattern mixing, brown and gray, pink and blue – this was out of my comfort zone for multiple reasons as well, and I’m not sure just how much I liked it – but I think it worked. Original post here.
Before I started this blog, I never would have thought of wrapping this sweater around, securing it with a belt, and wearing it with leggings. And then adding a pop of sequins?! I think this look definitely portrays the way my style has grown in leaps and bounds since I started blogging. Original post here.
Now onto the more unpleasant task of picking my least favorite outfits from the last few months.
Somehow I never like outfits that this shirt is part of. I always think I’m going for the cool, over-sized look, but it turns out sloppy. This look was just boring and not at all put together. Original post here.
This is another sloppy, casual look that was great in my head but didn’t turn out well. Slouchy jeans, t-shirt, sweatshirt – it just didn’t work for me. Plus, majorly bad hair day. Original post here.
There is nothing really wrong with this outfit other than that it doesn’t fit my style at all. Too matchy-matchy, too girly, too something. It wasn’t me, so I didn’t feel happy about it. Original post here.
Okay, enough with that. Here are a few of my absolute favorite outfits that I wore in the last six months. I think the reason they all stand out to me are because they all seem like outfits, instead of just pieces of clothing thrown together. They are complete looks.
Some outfits I plan for weeks in advance. Some outfits I thrown on the morning of. It was the latter in the case of this outfit, but I really loved the shape and the colors, and I felt ridiculously warm and comfortable. Original post here.
This outfit felt complete and put together. I loved the dusky colors with a pop of orange, and all the pieces worked well together. Original post here.
Polka dot chambray and mustard skinnies – need I say more? Original post here.
This is a recent outfit, but it is one of my favorites that I have ever worn. I love love everything about it: the silhouette, the colors, the layers. It’s just very pleasing to the eye – at least my eye. Original post here.
I’d love to hear from you – which were your favorites or least favorites?
One last thing – during the past six months, I’ve also had some big spikes in my stats, and I’ve gained quite a few new followers. So to all of you, thank you so much for taking an interest in what I’m doing, and tagging along through the good outfits and the bad. I cannot express how much I appreciate everyone who has ever taken the time to visit my blog, and I hope you stick around for another six months!
