A retrospective of 2013 favorites

Librarian for Life + Style | 2013 favorites in retrospectFor this retrospective recap of 2013 favorites, I’m doing something a little different. For each month, I’m highlighting:

  • the most-viewed post
  • my personal fave
  • my husband’s personal fave
  • if applicable, the winner of that month’s favorites poll (FYI, I didn’t start doing the reader poll until July)

And only once in the entire year did the same outfit sweep all categories!

It was so.much.fun. to get my husband’s perspective. I put together a mini-recap for each month for him to look at, and to hear the reasons why he chose each look (and the runners-up) was really interesting. He definitely has his favorite pieces — the colorblocked cardigan and the polka-dotted peplum top, to name a couple — and he remarked on how much more adventurous I got with my style choices as the year went on. The other faves I culled from the monthly retrospective posts.

And without further ado, a year of favorites. Each post is linked below the collage, so you can explore to your heart’s content! 😀 (Also, I’ve posted my least favorite outfits from last year on my Facebook page, if you’d like to take a look.)

    That is so great you got your husband’s opinion. I don’t think I could get my husband to sit down long enough to pick one, especially for each month! There are so many gorgeous looks in this post! That floral skirt from April really caught my eye and your poll winner from July is such a pretty print!

      Thanks, Laura! Yes, my husband is very sweet in being willing to lend his fashion opinion. He also likes it when I give him choices to pick — like when I’m getting dressed, I’ll ask questions like “This belt or this one?” And he’s sooooooo proud of himself when he picks out clothes that I buy when we go shopping together. 🙂
