Yep, a new year, another retrospective post. After the poll closes for your favorite outfit of December (vote here!), then I’ll be back next week with a more comprehensive look back at personal faves in 2013. 🙂
Right now you can enjoy the top 5 posts from 2013, the posts that got the most views throughout last year. Running themes? Y’all like me in black-and-white — and (re)mixing it up! Also, 4 of the 5 top posts are are casual looks, and the blog posts titles are all pretty descriptive. July posts took 2 spots of the top 5, and September posts earned 3 places in the top 10. Hmmm … very interesting.
This post, with almost 800 individual views, got a LOT of traffic from the One Piece Many Ways Link Up at Audrey’s Putting Me Together style blog. This scooter store mural became one of my favorite backdrops and photo shoots. And the black-white-and-cognac color scheme resonated with a lot of readers. 🙂
#3: 7 x 7 remix challenge
This post benefited from the 7 x 7 remix challenge at Ma Nouvelle Mode. More black & white stripes (via the tank top) and more remixing. Taking notes, y’all. 😉
#4: Polka dot mixer
This one surprised me, gotta be honest. The post definitely benefited from being part of the “Take One, Pass It On,” started by Sarah’s Real Life, and from inspiring Erin @ Loop Looks to remix her own interpretation. I like the polka-dot pattern-mixing, but those grey tights stop me short. I would go for black tights next time (like Erin did!).
#5: Wearing a maxi dress as a maxi skirt
Another casual look! And the second in a row employing one of my favorite tricks, to wear a dress as a skirt. I ♥ layering. As well as the deep fuchsia color of this maxidress. This post got a lot of referrals from the Style Me Friday linkup at The Fashionista Next Door, as well as from being featured in Friday Style @ Simple Easy Style.
And if y’all are interested, here are the rest of the posts rounding out the top 10:
